USS Nogura – May-19
Task Force 72, Task Force 72 Command
No real changes to the site this month, just standard upkeep and organization. Next month's goal is to refocus on the wiki and get it cleaned up. I will also be starting a big recruitment drive. I've been looking at new places to advertise and get some more new blood to the game.
This month saw the loss of no crew and the addition of none, either. We did, however, have our Chief Engineer bring in a new character, for Chief of Science; which in turn allowed me to promote my Assistant Engineer to Chief. Overall a good month for the crew
Chief of Intel
Chief Diplomatic Officer

“A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.” – Earl Wilson
Everyone needs a little rest and relaxation, even the crew of the Nogura. Fresh from their adventures in the Mirror Universe, Neil orders the ship to the planet Risa. Docking the ship with the orbital shipyard above, Admiral Harrington gives the crew the much-needed vacation they have earned. With nothing but beaches, sun, drinks, and whatever else the heart desires as the crew of the Nogura forget their troubles on the pleasure planet, Risa.
Overall a great month as we wrapped up our Mirror Universe Thread and moved on with a new story. Shoreleave seems to be going well, but it will end story and a new mission will start.
Next Mission: The Collector
"We are all born alone and die alone. The loneliness is definitely part of the journey of life." ~Jenova Chen
Fresh from their vacation on Risa, the Nogura is ordered to rendezvous with a large ship traveling at slow speed in Federation space. Sent to make contact and establish a dialog, the Nogura encounters an alien vessel many times larger than anything in the Federation databases; almost 50 times bigger than any known ship. Starting their initial scans the object tractors the Nogura into the behemoth interior and begins to make the ship a part of itself, in effect assimilating the Nogura and her crew. Though the crew manages to get shields up, it's only a matter of time before the Nogura is forever trapped.
Sending out teams to explore the alien vessel, the crew find terrariums constructed for the thousands of other sentient beings captured and their descendants imprisoned. Many familiar and unfamiliar races are found, from across the Gamma and Delta Quadrants. Further, searching reveals that an AI, who calls himself the Collector, is responsible for the vessel's mission. The ship is eons old, traveling at very low speed (slower-than-light), capturing and adding aliens from ships and planets to its collection. The computers are degrading and have lost track of where it came from and why it's collecting. While the crew seems to be powerless to escape, they opt to determine the nature of the Collector and help it and/or put an end to its mission while relocating the many intelligent beings aboard the vessel to new homes. Can the crew figure out this AIs plans and get their ship out in time, or will they be lost to the Collector for good?
