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…

On:

Sun had been away from the majority of the crew for the last little bit. Paperwork, mostly. Signing off on supplies and transfers, and schedules, and so many things. If she was honest, she would have rather done most anything but that. It was necessary, but part of the…

On:

Adams sat idly at the main ops station, basically staring out into space. As fun as exploration was, no one had prepared him for the tedium of setting up an outpost on the fringe of the known galaxy. So here he sat with nothing to do but watch stars…

ON:

The counselor was frazzled, to say the least. Piles of PADDs littered her desk, the rest of her office was filled with the gifts for the colonists that the crew dropped off, and they still kept bringing more. Christine was fortunate the Captain agreed to meet her in the…

Christine didn't like chasing crew members, especially since they always seem to run when they hear her voice over the comm. There was someone though that she hadn't spoken to for…

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?"…

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…
