Starbase 50 – Jul-19
Task Force 72, Task Force 72 Command
This month saw the biggest change to our site, as we are in the process of switching simms from the USS Nogura to Starbase 50. The change came with a new skin, new images, new pips, and changes to many of the site's pages. There will continue to be changes over the month as things get finalized and dealt with.
There was no loss of crew this month, but the good news is we gained a Marine Commanding Officer (MCaptain Patton). No promotions or awards to report at this time. We will start recruiting after this mission once we move to the station, full time.
This month as we move to the station, we are running two separate missions. One mission for the crew on the Nogura, as we tie up her story and a second with some of the crew on the station setting things up for the transfer.
Mission 1 Title: The Collector
Summary: 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?
Mission 2 Title: New Beginnings
With the crew of the Nogura headed off to the Collector, Neil Harrington travels to Starbase 50, Poseidon Station, to finalize her final moments before going operational. Knowing that he will need an entirely new crew, Harrington debates transferring his crew to the station or giving himself the new start he thinks he needed. Events take a twist as Poseidon Station receives a distress call from the Nogura. As the rescue unfolds Harrington realizes what his future has in store for him and his crew.

Another great month, with even greater months in store. I want to give a big thanks to my crew for all their support and assistance over the last few months. You all are a great group of people.
