Welcome to the USS Shanghai, registry NCC-82941. The year is 2391. Starfleet has been stretched thin with its numerous tasks – from humanitarian in helping the Romulan Star Empire recover from the Hobus Supernovae, to threats from old enemies, and numerous points of internal turmoil. However, there is always a glimmer of light. For the Shanghai, that light has been Outpost Seppala. For the people of the Outpost though, that light is the Shanghai. As the only large Starfleet vessel in the area, the Shanghai leads the region’s cadre of ships in their exploration effort.

Shanghai’s list of missions is expansive. The NCC-82941 was integral in a number of small conflicts; from fighting to secure a place for the Ryuu Species, to battling pirates, borg, and worse, to its final demise in an Syndicate trap. Now, the crew of the NCC-82941 has been sent as part of the Federation’s Rimward Exploration Initiative (REI) to explore Sectors in the Auriga section of the Perseus arm of the Milky Way. The exploration of this new region is still in its earliest stages, but there is always a drive to explore, and the countless dangers that come with any exploration.

::: Current Mission :::
“Shakedown Mark II” or “Togo, where no one has gone before!”

The USS Shanghai returns to Outpost Seppala from Federation space with supplies and construction equipment in tow – only to find out that the attached Saber Class vessel, the USS Togo, has experienced a malfunction in its warp core during its first mission away from the station. The Shanghai moves to assist the Togo before the second wave begins to arrive at Seppala. But Togo wasn’t just out here for fun – and her long range probes have begun to pick up interesting readings…

Lynnie quickly pulled on a bathrobe, knowing how easily she made Mei blush with her forward and unreserved nature.

When the beautiful Captain sat back down, Lyn slid into her lovely fiancé's lap, face-to-face. She very gently kissed the woman, before drawing back, "What did you have to tell me?"…

Sun was often soft spoken - but it appeared her meeting had gone poorly. "I do not care," She exaggerated each syllable in the sentence as she stopped just shy of entering the main hangar of the Shanghai. She was talking to an older man, with salt and pepper…

Lyn lead her fiance and her half-sister into the Captain's voluminous quarters.

As the hatch slid shut behind Kachiko, "Do either of you need anything? Tea?"

"I'm okay for now, ai." Mei spoke lightly.

Kachiko smiled and waved her friend and sister off, "I'm perfectly fine, Lynnie."

"Okay, well then…

Vulcan is an elegant language. Economy of style, logical progressions of etymology, and contrary to popular belief, only one word for "heat". Felek, for reference. However, oddly enough, I'm not reading much about heat in the context of temperature. The Vulcan summary of the events surrounding the Reformation and the…
