Welcome to the USS Legacy!

Welcome to the USS Legacy! This simm takes place in the Kelvin/alternate timeline of the original series Star Trek.

The USS Legacy, a ship that was reconstructed from the remnants of ships that had been destroyed by Nero at Vulcan (now a black hole). Legacy is one of the new Constitution class starships and is set to launch on July 4, 2261. With much of the fleet having been destroyed at Vulcan and the top brass having been injured or killed by Khan, Starfleet is in dire need of recruits. Many officers are either inexperienced or are being brought out of the classroom to fill in the personnel gap. Legacy is no exception. Its Captain, Cynthia Lynette Jackson, is a mere 30 years old. Starfleet teachers are returning to the field. And there are ensigns galore, all over the ship.

This is our five year mission to seek out new life and to boldly go where no one has gone before!

General News - Status Update: January Edition

The following is a news item from Commander Cynthia Lynette Jackson a/k/a Captain Cindy.

Welcome to Legacy’s first 2019 Status Update! I will be sending these out on the first of the month (give or take a few days) to give an overview of everything that happened in the month before and of what our goals are for the upcoming month.

Crew

We lost two people this month putting us at 6 active players, with one person still on ELOA.

We lost:

Chief Medical Officer and 2XO Lieutenant Cole Dering
Chief Science Officer Lieutenant Alastair Hallewell II

On Extended Leave of Absence:

Lieutenant Naryi Avonavi

Website

I shockingly (sarcasm = hyperbole) did nothing with the site this month again. However, our XO will be coordinating with me to start working on it and she will be making better. I will be having XO create a Wiki for us while I just try to become competent at Nova. I know she has some other projects in the works, so please bear with us here.

Sim

We slowed down again this month to only 6 posts. I'm not sure what has happened but I would like to see the posting rate pick back up. Let me know how I can assist. It may be due to the fact we've had some large JPs.... I'm going to try and cut those down and see what I can do to get another situation that excites everyone. Let's push through this mission so we can get to something that may be more conducive to individual posts. Please remember that we're supposed to be aiming for a post a week. So, we can all do better here.

Mission Recap

Legacy took off to investigate the radio silence of the space stations K-4 and K-5 which had gone silent near the Klingon Neutral Zones. K-4 and K-5 were placed near the Borderlands and there was some suspicion that this was not the result of Klingons but Orions for reasons unknown. Nearly three days into their 4 day trip to the Klingon Neutral Zone, Legacy received an emergency signal from K-6 complaining that it was under attack from an unknown ship that disappeared after the attack. The station was in disarray and it feared the ship’s return. Two hours from K-6 at warp 8, the ship reappeared briefly on the viewscreen, a ball of plasma energy attacked the station and all communications were lost. Legacy is investigating.

K-6’s shields were fortified by Rodinium, the hardest substance known to science. Yet, it crumbled on Legacy’s briefing table. Legacy suspects that the unidentified ship is heading to K-7, which is closest to the Klingon border and houses quadrotritocale for Sherman’s Planet. At the briefing, Legacy crew tried to doctor a torpedo to find the ship and they intercepted a communication that a Vulcan theorized showed a picture of a Romulan, which nobody has ever seen in StarFleet. Legacy crew theorized that this ship, which can go invisible and fire a powerful weapon is a prototype.

The Legacy crew tracked its tetryon particle stream and fired in its general area. After several torpedoes were fired, Legacy noticed debris in its general area. The crew determined that there was insufficient mass to make up the ship and started firing at it again. In response, the Romulan ship materialized and fired a plasma energy blast at Legacy. It then went invisible again. The blast was faster than Legacy which is currently trying to maneuver out of its way unsuccessfully.

Objectives

Investigate the cause of the destruction of K-6, determine the objectives of the Romulan ship, and how to handle the Romulan ship.

Player of the Month

Once again, the player of the month for December is Kris, better known as Ensign Neza Glenn and Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Ayden Kennett, who has been stirring up the personal scene with many crewmembers and finds ways to get involved with plot despite not being a crew chief. She also has the most posts of any non-command staff again this month.

BFMS

Most of you have already done this but a few still have not. If you are one of the people who has not, please register your character at the below site and assign them to USS Legacy, Task Force 64. Bravo Fleet and the Task Force would like as many people on there as possible, as would I.

Ideas

If anyone has any ideas for character development or even some subplots, share them with us. I know that my door, as well as my XO’s are always open. Any questions, comments, or issues, please don’t hesitate to contact the Command team. We are here for you!

That’s it for this month’s Status Update! Let's get active again! I can hardly wait to sim more with all of you!

Welcome to Legacy’s second Status Update! I will be sending these out on the first of the month to give an overview of everything that happened in the month before and of what our goals are for the upcoming month.

Crew

We lost two people this month and gained two people this month to stay at 11 active players, but one person has gone on ELOA.

We lost:

Lieutenant JG Jasper Noakes, Chief Helmsman due to time commitments
Lieutenant JG Alec Toten, Doctor/Counselor due to lack of posting

Sim

For two straight months, we have had over 20 posts, with 21 this month! It did not feel like it to me. We started off really hot and then we cooled off, perhaps because I had some life issues for the second half of the month. Whatever the case, I'm hoping that the last two weeks were an aberration and that we're going to continue our streak of 20+ posts a month.

Mission Recap

Legacy took off to investigate the radio silence of the space stations K-4 and K-5 which had gone silent near the Klingon Neutral Zones. K-4 and K-5 were placed near the Borderlands and there was some suspicion that this was not the result of Klingons but Orions for reasons unknown. Nearly three days into their 4 day trip to the Klingon Neutral Zone, Legacy received an emergency signal from K-6 complaining that it was under attack from an unknown ship that disappeared after the attack. The station was in disarray and it feared the ship's return. Two hours from K-6 at warp 8, the ship reappeared briefly on the viewscreen, a ball of plasma energy attacked the station and all communications were lost. Legacy is investigating.

Objectives

*Investigate the cause of the destruction of K-6 and probably the same cause of K-4 and K-5.

Player of the Month

The player of the month for September is Kris, better known as Ensign Neza Glenn, who has been stirring up the personal scene with many crewmembers and finds ways to get involved with plot despite not being a crew chief. She also has the most posts of any non-command staff (12) in the 44 posts that Legacy has in its slightly less than 2 months of existence.

General News - Status Update: September Edition
The following is a news item from Commander Cynthia Lynette Jackson a/k/a Captain Cindy.

Welcome to Legacy’s first Status Update! I will be sending these out on the first of the month to give an overview of everything that happened in the month before and of what our goals are for the upcoming month.

Crew

Our entire crew of 11 people joined us in August!

Our crew has welcomed:
Rear Admiral John Wheeler
Commander Cynthia Jackson, Captain of Legacy
Lieutenant Commander Charlotte Hudson, XO
Lieutenant Cole Dering, M.D., Chief Medical Officer/2XO
Lieutenant Naryi Avonavi, Chief Engineering Officer
Lieutenant Azelya Korr, Chief Security/Tactical Officer
Lieutenant JG Alastair Hallewell II, Chief Science Officer
Lieutenant Junior Grade Jasper Noakes, Chief Helmsman
Lieutenant Junior Grade Alec Toten, Counselor
Ensign Neza Gleen, Science Officer
Ensign Nadia Jiaying, Communications Officer

Website

Other than the initial set up, I haven’t done much with the site this month. However, our Chief Medical Officer/2XO should be congratulated for the beautiful skin she put up and insists that she will be making better. I will be having both our XO and 2XO help with doing more, like creating a Wiki for us while I just try to become competent at Nova.

Sim

I’m very impressed with our crew! We started on or about August 3 and had 20 posts on the missions and 2 person logs posted, bringing us up to a total of 22 posts! I appeared in 10 posts. Other leaders were: Lieutenant Naryi Avonavi with 7, Lieutenant Commander Charlotte Hudson with 6, Ensign Neza Glenn with 6, and Lieutenant Cole Dering with 4.

Mission Recap

Captain Cynthia Jackson, who prefers to be called Cindy or Captain Cindy, has met her entire crew. She learned that her ship would have a PR Officer appointed by Rear Admiral John Wheeler that on matters of public interest would have authority that superseded herself and her XO. Captain Cindy confided to her XO that she did not trust this situation. At the Banquet after the Christening on July 4, 2261, after rousing speeches, Rear Admiral John Wheeler, after taking pictures with Cindy and Bec, confided that he believed that she was the wrong person for the job. After dressing her and Bec down for allegedly being tardy to their mission briefing, the two officers were given their first mission to explore the communications' silence of two starbases near the Klingon Neutral Zone. They were instructed to leave no later than July 5, 2261 at 1400 hours.

Objectives

*Investigate the cause of the lack of communication from Starbases K-4 and K-5 which went silent two days ago.

Player of the Month

The player of the month for August is Sable Warrioress, who plays Lieutenant Naryi Avonavi. Not only does she post with quality but somehow found the time to create two NPCs (one registered) in Ensign Martha Wachahunka and Retired Vice Admiral Baron Offen Bakergood of Old Scone.

Most of you have already done this but if you have not, please register your character at the below site and assign them to USS Legacy, Task Force 64. Bravo Fleet and the Task Force would like as many people on there as possible, as would I.
