Welcome to the USS Shanghai, registry NCC-63384-A. 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 63384 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 63384-A 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…

Seppala Station sometimes felt like the furthest point from Federation territory. Across the void of space between two spiral arms, the station was the last possible Federation stop for explorers coming this far rimward. The station was small. It was little more than an older civilian mining station based on…

Mei had been feeling a bit better. It had been sometime since she had gone through the motions of confusing the holograms in the brothel she had been dragged into. Calling for the program to end or the arch was about as useful as trying to explain she wasn't…

"Security Authorization denied. Please try again." The computer's voice droned overhead. "Warning, one more failed attempt will lock the system out."

Dominic kicked the console underneath the station that he was working at. "Damn computer, I swear that as soon as I get access I'm tearing you apart." He muttered…

Hey dad!

It's been a long time since I've chatted with you, and I'm sorry that I haven't been as active as I have been in writing you lately. I was able to get transferred to another ship after my medical leave was up. She's a…

Well, it had to happen eventually. Getting wounded, that is. Actually, it's amazing I avoided it as long as I did, given that I get shot at for a living. The crazy part is that it was all because of a traitor. Not crazy that it happened, but crazy that…

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…
