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.

On the Bridge, the command staff sat anxiously by their panels, waiting for word they could get control of the ship. Flight control, weapons, shields, and command functions were all still locked-out.

If not their whole plan was going nowhere fast!

Having cleared the Docking Pylon vicinity without being noticed, the crew was now gathered in the corridors inside the hatchway.
