USS Armstrong

Welcome Aboard the USS Armstrong

Assigned to the Raeyan Sector, an area of Federation controlled space far from the peace of Earth and Sector 001, the USS Armstrong is a part of 4th Fleet's Task Force 93.

Its three fold mission includes:

+ Patrolling the Klingon Border along the rebellious Sovereignty of Kahless.
+ Securing Federation interests in the Raeyan Sector after Starfleet pulled out of the area three years ago.
+ Keeping the peace in an area where lawlessness and piracy once reigned supreme.



The USS Armstrong is named after an Earth Astronaut, Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on Earth's moon - one of the critical events that eventually led Humans to explore the stars and help found the United Federation of Planets. Its crew, diverse in culture and experience, strives to live up to the ideals of those first men and woman who looked to the stars and were not afraid to seek out new life, new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has been before.

Good Afternoon,

I'd like to thank you all for your great posting over the last month. Let's keep it up, and we can really get something moving here.

From the Bravo Fleet/Task Force 93 perspective, we are going to be taking part in a larger TF93 storyline involving the Sovereignty of Kahless and associated escalation of tensions.

Today, however, I'd like to announce we have a new member joining us! Please welcome Ted, aka Lt. Commander Cormac O’Hagan, who will be joining us as our Flight Leader (commander of our fighter group).

You might be saying, a-what? We don't have fighters, we're an intrepid class starship. Well, you're right. But, I don't like to limit creativity - so we decided along with our repairs at Niveq II, we will be assigned a SMALL group of fighter craft, replacing some of our shuttle complement. We will also modify two cargo bays to be retrofitted as a hangar for a fighter. In total, we will be taking on 4 fighters and losing 3 shuttlecraft.

The IC reasoning behind this is that starfleet can't provide us any more capital ship support, but they can give us these fighters to assist us in our patrol and engagement with the SoK.

Should be a fun ride! Welcome Commander O'Hagan!

Cheers,
Chris

AKA Captain Sterling

Strolling out onto the bridge, Dick handed off a PADD to a passing operations officer. "Ensign, make sure that gets to the quartermaster. It has my signature on the re-supply checklist." He said. Clapping his hands together once, he smiled. "Let's bring her in nice and slow. We don't often…

Jeredak looked up from the PADD he'd been pretending to browse as his office door chimed.

"Enter," he said. casually tossing the PADD back onto the pile of similar devices on his desk.

The door opened to reveal Suliban and a rather frazzled looking Ensign Jameson.

"Ah, gentlemen. Work well…
