Welcome to the USS Ascendant!
"We stand united, and united we shall fall."
"So Far Away" by Staind, Theme song of Star Trek Ascendant
In the wake of near complete annihilation, the universe's superpowers stood united on one front against one common enemy. All past conflicts and transgressions forgiven, where power and greed no longer was the driving force, where the only thing that mattered....was survival.
A formidable force stands on the doorstep of earth led by a ruthless, faceless enemy known only as the Evincar threatening the existence of anyone whom refuses to submit to them. Humans, Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, Bajorans and members from countless other species stand firmly opposed, ready to protect what their ancestors fought so hard to create.
This would be the war to end all wars, the war to unite the universe in peace, to finally banish evil from the depths of which it came.
But this story would not have a happy ending. In the year 2590, earth now stands as a symbol of tragedy, a graveyard of souls lost in the great conflict. As a rememberance of the day the universe and time seemed to have stopped....
And then, out of the destruction comes hope. Captain Natasha Kensington, a stalwart commander loyal to the Federation emerges with a crew from all walks of life, with a simple mission.
Join Captain Kensington and the crew of the Avenger-Class Ascendant as they struggle in their mission to rebuild the Federation and bring life and hope back to the galaxy.
This is the new frontier, this is Star Trek: Ascendant.

Alright remaining gang,
I'd like to start pushing this mission ahead however I do want it to delve deeply into the characters on the sim to establish a strong story for further missions. I realize this will take time but I think in the end it will make for a better overall simming experience.
I will also be looking into recruiting options to get more players on our sim and different outlooks as that what this sim thrives on.
It is my hope we can once again return to have a fun filled storyline, if you have any suggestions for how to improve the sim or find prospective players, do not hesitate to ask!

I know I don't do this NEARLY enough but I wanted to acknowledge your accolades of the past two months as the Ascendant has not only become an enjoyable sim setting the example for the fleet but we've managed to capture the UoD: Silver twice in a row!
I hope this mission has proven to be an exciting one and look out for some more developments to come this week!
Awesome work ladies and gentlemen!

Good day Crew,
It is with sadness I announce our XO Tykar Idrani has chosen to move on from the sim. He has been a great addition to our sim and I wish him the best on his future endeavours.
As such, we will need a new XO. Thankfully our own Avon Kern has stepped up and will be assuming the role. For a portion of the mission (with David's permission) I will NPC Tykar until we can write him out. After this Avon will assume the role IC.
So let's continue having fun guys!

Good day all,
I apologize for the delay but I will give you all an outline of our next mission. Some of the premise was eluded to in the post "The Hand That Swings".
The mission starts out in the post "Midnight Distress" in which we receive a distress signal from the planet. The planet is Dorogis III which is a non-warp capable society. The society is akin to the middle ages run under a draconian dictatorship.
Given the fact the society should not have technology, a distress call would be anomalous and cause for investigation.
Just remember, there is always more then meets the eye :)
Let me know if you guys have questions, otherwise enjoy!
