USS Endeavour January 2019
Task Force 72, Task Force 72 Command
January was a good month for the Endeavour! Aside from being nominated for a Platinum Simulation award, a distinction in and of itself. The ship remains on assignment and continues to lick its wounds from the ambush several days prior. For 2019, I plan to build a new website for the Endeavour to give it a fresh start. This will be a long process, but one I think will be beneficial to the simulation and the players.
No new or departing crew this month. All-in-all it's a steady month for writing and background. The Executive Officer will be conducting battle drills to test the crew's mettle under fire. The Endeavour is still looking for a Chief Security and Tactical Officer and supporting roles in the ship's Marine Detachment and Security department.
The Endeavour has arrived at the Zidell Shipyards mothballs yard, the site of an unprecedented theft of Starfleet equipment. The crew are searching the station for clues while the ship remains in orbit to deter any more attacks until reinforcements arrive. Commander Alidar, Beauvoir, and Lieutenant Swiftpaws are trying to determine how much was stolen from the yards and the origin of the attackers. Doctor Davenport, Lieutenant Patton, and Lieutenant Hendrix are tending to the station's wounded and the damage to the station.
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.
