Welcome to the USS Ascension!

Welcome to the USS Ascension!

Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat- Fortune Favors the Bold

Welcome to the USS Ascension! The first of the Ascension-class Dreadnoughts, the Ascension is one of the most advanced and most powerful vessels ever built by Starfleet. Rated for combat, exploration, scientific, diplomatic, and logistics missions, the 1,600 member crew is dedicated to serving at the forefront of Starfleet and the Federation. Under the command of Captain Acker Kather the crew plans to tackle the most challenging of Starfleet’s missions.

Join the USS Ascension as it bravely serves as Starfleet’s vanguard and staunch defender!

Current Mission:
Mission 05: A Brand New Day

Having come to terms with their new normal, the crew's decision to mutiny in support of their Captain seemed to be the right one. The ship is now being upgraded and taking aboard new crew. What does Starfleet have in mind for the ship and its crew?

I wanted to be the first of the crew to do this in open forum; Congratulations are in order for Captain Acker Kather on her promotion to the rank of captain. I want to apologize to our brand new captain for taking so long in doing this, though.

To those celebrating holidays over the next few days, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, and happy (very belated) Hannukah! I wish you good fortune, surrounded by those you love, and that you never experience writer's block!

As such, there will be no expectation of activity during the break. However, come January, be looking for details of our first mission as we journey to the Delta Quadrant!

Hi all,

As we embark on this adventure together, I wanted to let you know of a few things, and remind you of a few items, as well.

First off, please check your tags. Many of you have outstanding tags from the summer, or haven't had a chance to post in the main mission yet. Please keep on top of these, as it's the only way for us to move forward. The more you are able to contribute, the more I will be able to provide for you all.

To that end, I've created the first cadre of NPCs for use by all. I gave general descriptions and mindsets, but feel free to customize them as you wish, if one speaks to you. I can roleplay any of the already created NPCs to create a JP, if you wish.
In addition, feel free to add any NPCs that you've used/would like to use. The Ascension only comes to life if we allow it to.

Once we launch, I have several B story beats available to players. I will request that each player either select one of these, or create their own, so that characters can start to take shape within our universe. More on that later.

Finally, a reminder to recruit! Though I'm attempting to use every resource available to me, my options are somewhat limited. In addition, the most effective way is by word-of-mouth! There's a lot of potential available both through the Ascension's traditional crew, and the cadet corps. Let's promote it!

Questions/Comments/Concerns? Let me know.

As I survey our new ship, though personally i still can't fathom why Starfleet couldn't just upgrade the Ascension like it's done to many other ships in the past but, that's why I went through the enlisted training program and not officer's training. For one, I had no desire to…
