Task Force 72, Task Force 72 Command
The Endeavour's internet presence remains unchanged for the month, but within the next month, I plan to build out a new website for her. Our current website has some oddities that I feel are best ignored and a new one built. This may take some time, but I think it's the best way forward. The ship itself remains relatively unchanged for the month of February.
Unfortunately, we have had to say goodbye to two of our players: Chief Science Officer Ourielle and Chief of Operations Trey. Both players will be missed, but we wish them the best of luck on wherever life leads them. In good news, however, we have a new Chief Science Officer: Lt. JG T'Jmal. We welcome the player aboard and look forward to the contributions to the Endeavour.
We have new open positions for this month: Chief Security and Tactical Officer and Chief of Operations. In addition we have openings for all assistant department heads and enlisted personnel.
We're still working our way through Season 4: Crisis on the Frontier, but the crew has finally caught on a break on the source of the pirate's weapons and their supplier. We will pivot into Episode 2 of this season: Lost Frontier. The crew embarks on the hunt for the pirates weapons' supplier and the reason for the attacks against Federation convoys beyond simple piracy.
Season 4: The Barbary Corsairs
With attention turned toward the Romulan Relief Effort, piracy has taken hold of the critical trade lanes between the fledgling Cardassian Union and United Federation of Planets. Emboldened by the absence of Starfleet and Federation security forces, pirates and separatists have launched increasingly daring raids against Federation and Cardassian merchant vessels. Two weeks ago a pirate organization known as The Corsairs destroyed four Federation-flagged transport ships and severally damaged the USS Leopold. In response to the brazen attack, Starfleet Command ordered the USS Endeavour into the region.
The Endeavour’s mission is threefold: (1) Protect critical aid convoys destined for Cardassia, (2) determine the source of the pirate attacks, and (3) neutralize the pirates’ base of operations. To aid in its mission, Starfleet Command assigned a detachment from the United Federation of Planets Frontier and Trade Authority (UFP FTA) to assist the Endeavour’s crew in the investigation and interdiction. Two FTA patrol cutters (USS Jaguar and USS Puma) have been tasked to supplement the Endeavour’s efforts in the sector.
Episode 1: Crisis on the Frontier
Two weeks after the dramatic conclusion at Terok Kal, the crew of the Endeavour enjoy a welcome and much needed respite at Langley Station. Rumors on the station suggest a treaty of alliance with the Cardassian Union is in the early stages of negotiation. As incentive for cooperation, the Federation increases development assistance shipments to Cardassia. While shoreleave winds down and the Endeavour’s long overdue resupply concludes, tragic news reaches the Starbase. A convoy has been destroyed and its Starfleet escort crippled. The Endeavour is ordered out of drydock and dispatched to the increasingly lawless frontier between Cardassia and the Federation.
