Task Force 47, Task Group 47C
No major updates to the website, everything is fairly similar. We did add the Gold UoM for September and the blurb from the news article to the main page. Many of the character avatars are being replaced by custom made avatars by Lieutenant Thorrin, our Chief Operations Officer.
Crew are functioning well together, despite the lack of a working starship. That fact is about to change as the crew of the USS Cross have just boarded Hunter's Point, a Federation shipyard for decommissioned and inactive starships. With the help of the commanding officer of the small station, the crew search for the prototype/testbed spaceframe of the Insignia class into which they'll place their computer and warp core.
We have filled out most of the department head positions, though there are a couple still lurking in the shadows. That said, we continue to seek new players to add to all positions on the ship and all Assistant Chief positions remain open. We're about to launch a new chapter in the Cross' history and now would be a great time to join.
This month we gained:
Chief Petty Officer Dallas Baker
Chief of the Boat
Lieutenant JG Jorien Faal
Lieutenant JG Kether McCloud
Chief Intelligence Officer
This month we lost:
Lieutenant JG Shiannah Shennas
Chief Intelligence Officer
Now playing on the USS Cross
Episode Two: The Graveyard
With the spaceframe of the USS Cross declared irreparable, the newly united crew of the Cross must come together for the first time to obtain a replacement. Despite the destruction of the Cross' body, her warp core remains intact and operational. With just a bit of research and a bit more luck, the Cross will be reborn with new meeting old. Hopefully, favors owed will aid the crew through the Graveyard.
Current Story Arc:
Over the next several months (perhaps the next year), the USS Cross will be embroiled in a Federation Civil War. After the position of President was vacated in haste by former Federation President Nanietta Bacco, fearing for her life, a new President, Richard Brook, was hastily elected in what can only be described as a military coup. There is retrievable data that can prove the election results were tampered with, but they are stored in one of Starfleet's least accessible, high security Intelligence facilities on Andoria, affectionately dubbed the Freezer. But something more sinister than election tampering lies in wait as the President moves to militarize Starfleet and destroy any starships whose crews do not agree with his militant ideals.
Within the core worlds of the Federation, many of whom have seceded due to the President's extreme measures, some due to old enmities reignited, life goes on as normal as the Federation News Service serves as the warring President's propaganda machine. Most Federation citizens are unaware of the militant regime's hard stance on those ships who remain loyal to the tenets of peaceful exploration.
Once the crew of the USS Cross are able to restore their ship to working order, their commanding officer, Commander Joshua Hart intends to lead a resistance movement against President Brook and his militarized Starfleet.
The problem is that President Brook may not be as he seems and there will be revelations so shocking that it may shake the whole of Starfleet, Militarists and Loyalists, to their very core. Any uprising is coming to the Milky Way, but who is really leading the charge?
