Welcome to the Starship Ceres NX-10!


The Earth-Romulan War has begun! The United Earth Starfleet and it's allies are under attack against the Romulan Star Empire. Though they have never seen their faces, they have seen their ships and what terror they can give the most experienced crew. The S.S. Ceres is one of the newest NX Refit class starship released from drydock, and is equipped with experimental technology.

The Ceres has new experimental Quad Phase Canon, that fires four bursts, instead of a continuous beam. It is also equipped with a new experimental deflector shield technology, though the power levels required, they can’t use them all the time. Using these tools, the Ceres will help fight the Romulans and protect Earth and the Coalition.

Come join us as we fight to protect Earth from this threat.

Current Mission Title:
Episode 2: The Base
After spending a week in the Porrima system running tests, the S.S. Ceres is contacted by the Andorian Battle Cruiser, Luran. They are transferring Lieutenant Command Rho zh’Jelan, an Imperial Intelligence Officer. Shortly after, Starfleet Command contacts the Ceres to tell them that they will be using the intel that this Intelligence Officer has brought to them. What is this information? An abandoned Romulan starbase is located and the Andorian Imperial Guard has no available ships to investigate, so they reached out to United Earth Starfleet to investigate. The Ceres is tasked with investigating this station and gather all the intelligence they can and
return it to the Coalition.

For post of the month, I was a little selfish... As I went through the posts for December there were a lot of great posts that were written, but I had to go with the intro post for the holiday special. You know, Greg dancing naked in his quarters to Mariah Carey, yeah that one!

Goals for January


So our goals for January are going to be wrapping up Episode 1 and the Holiday Special. For the website, I want to go through the rest of the positions and add minimum ranks to each of them. My goals for you all is let's try to do some Personal Logs this month. Personal Logs are written IC, and in the first person. So like you are recording something. I think this would be fun to see what is going on in your character's head at a certain time. It can be about anything going on with your character. (This is not mandatory)

Keep up the great work people! If you have any questions, let the Command Team know!
