Sim Updates

I've been in the process to of shifting the Sim website over for Season 2, to reflect the new plot focus. We've updated the verbage on our main page and Sim Description page. New images are visible on each as well.

The new descriptions will be rolled out in our recruiting efforts online, and will be updated as plot events take place.

Story Elements

The USS Defiant concluded its mission investigating the Entity of the Volan Expanse, barely surviving the encounter. Trapped in the pocket universe, the Defiant crew boarded the lost USS Shelley looking for information regarding its disappearance and ways to injure the entity. After additional hostiles were also pulled into the Void, the Defiant manages to dispatch them and make preparations to exit the pocket universe. However, the Volan Expanse Entity itself appears, quickly overpowering and physically restraining the Defiant. At the same time, a Hydran infected by the Spector strain boards the ship and telepathically overpowers several officers, beginning a battle within the corridors of the Defiant. The crew sacrifice the Shelley in order to wound the entity, freeing the Defiant and allowing it to break through the barrier to return to normal space. However, the damage Defiant sustained was significant, and she was unable to proceed under her own power. The ship was towed back to starbase to undergo repairs.

During the 2 month repairs, several crew are writing posts regarding their character's actions during the interlude.

Following the 2 month repair period, the crew regroups as the Defiant is ready to return to service. After all of the launch preparations are complete, the USS Defiant will be en route to the Klingon Border, where fighting has broken out. Upon arriving, they will discover a string of attacks that indicate an experimental cloaking device is being used.

Other Information

A slower month as it was mostly wrap up of our final posts with the Shelley arc and a transition to our new "Season". That is also coupled with a few character reunions and new introductions. I anticipate there will be more to report as we get into the swing of things. We have our first civilian crew member which should also prove to provide interesting character moments, particularly regarding the costs of war.
