Sim Updates

We've completed an update to our sims rankset to accommodate our new Marine CO and the NPCs that other players have put together to fill out the Marine department. Discord use has seen an uptick over the last month, due in no small part to our new players and the transition to the new season. We've updated our tour form to reflect new staff and department heads.

Crew Updates

Our two new players, Jack Patton and Three of Eight, have taken to the Endeavour with enthusiasm. This has been just the sort of shakeup we've needed to get people involved outside the story. Miracle Swiftpaws has returned to the position of flight controller after an absence. Unfortunately, our Chief Science officer will be removed due to lack of communication.

Additional promotions will follow at the onset of the next adventure.

Story Elements

We are currently working on the final episode of Season Three: Peaceful Coexistence. At this point in the Episode, the Endeavour and her Cardassian counterpart have devised a plan to put a stop to the Blue-Gill parasites. By luring the "Command" parasite the station, the two captains hope to put an end to the infestation once and for all.

Episode Three: The Encounter

Starships across the fleet find themselves ordered to bizarre patrol routes, instructed to ferry cargo like civilian haulers, and inundated with crew rotations far in excess of standard procedure. Meanwhile, the Endeavour continues her investigation of the Cardassian trading station – Naktor Kal. Initial scans indicate all environmental control operations have ceased. The station is a vacuum. While investigating, a lone Cardassian Galor-class vessel observes the ship’s activities at the far edge of the system unbeknownst to the Endeavour, her crew, or Starfleet.

The blue-gill parasite conspiracy has been exposed, and the Endeavour crew is racing to stop the creatures before it overtakes the Federation!

Next season the Endeavour will pivot to an anti-piracy based story, teaser below.

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.
