Welcome to 'The Rock'!

A flash. A flash is all it took for the Borg to appear out of the depths of transwarp space and deal a crushing blow to the Federation and it's citizens. In an instant, over 16,000 men, women, and children were wiped out in a senseless and unwarranted attack on Starbase 900. From the wreckage, a small band of survivors managed to make their escape through nearly impossible odds in a gambit to find any shred of safety...

Enter Forward Operating Base Anchorage, AKA 'The Rock'. Deep within the bowels of this planet rests one of the Federation's last hopes in the Delta Quadrant. As we struggle to survive, we will need to find the courage and strength of will to push the Borg and all of the Federation's enemies back into the darkness from whence they came.

'The Rock' is the headquarters of the Starfleet Rapid Response Force. We house repair facilities as well as a small Rapid Response Force for quick operations within the Delta Quadrant. Join us in our quest to make history and be forever immortalized in the halls of Starfleet's heroes.

If anyone has photos in your sims linked to Photobucket third party hosting service, you need to move them to a different service as Photobucket is going to start charging $40 a month to use theirs and is cutting all links unless you pay.

With our CO on ELOA and our XO tied up with RL issues (not to mention his birthday) we need to continue on in their stead. I am always open for a JP and we can all post logs and solo posts. There's a lot of stuff to write about with this being a relatively new post. Everyone has lives. Let's see them. Everyone has a job. We want to hear about what you do in a day. If I have to carry this thing myself I will but I shouldn't have to. SO COME ON EVERYONE.....LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!!!

» Ongoing Mission-related Plots

Posted on Sat Jun 3rd, 2017 @ 2:41pm by Commander Andrew Knight in General News

Wanted to touch base with everyone about some of the various plots I see going on and put out one or two more I think will need postiness.

Obviously we need some character driven posts with some of our newer writers getting into the swing of their new duties. Wulf has been a go getter in that regards (kudos to you ^5).

We have a good premise to start a story line for opening diplomatic relations with the Oehiri. A mission best led by Lady Catherine.

Alyssa has proposed an interesting mission idea to revisit a planet encountered by Voyager on it's initial trek home through the DQ. It is my belief that would be a good mission to send the USS Hopper (it is a light explorer class vessel) with a crew.

A new plot idea of mine involves refitting both the Hopper and Zumwalt with Quantum Slipstream Drive (QSD) units for extended missions throughout the DQ. This will be a tech intensive plot needing input from both Wulf and Alyssa.

We still have the ongoing plot with establishing communications with the Space Dragons.

Major Phoenix will be busy getting his reinforced battalion up to speed (I understand Wulf also wants to do some cross-training in that regards).

You folks may notice that Andrew Knight is no longer double slotted in the Strategic Operations billet. His secondary billet is now as Commanding Officer for the Zumwalt. I would like people to consider if they want to take secondary positions aboard one of our two permanent support ships. I believe that James (aka our beloved BG Mitchell) will be taking command of the Hopper as his flagship.

I also want to throw out a spoiler alert for the near/intermediate future...there will be a return of the Borg into the story. James and I will have to hammer out a few ideas on how best to do that and what direction we want to go with it.

I know I have probably missed a few ongoing character driven plots with this announcement (such as the personal relationship between Cara and Andrew). Please do not feel that is an oversight. I am just trying to go over a few main plot points that would affect official duty related posts to be drafted.

COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS, INQUIRIES NOT JUST RECOMMENDED BUT STRONGLY ENCOURAGED (either attached here as comments or through PMs with the suitable persons to help develop our overall story).
