Status Current Mission

Moshe Samble has made a sacrifice: Give the Admiralty what they want, in return for what he wants. After five months of delay and diversion in the postwar’s resource scarcity, the Admiralty has agreed to greenlight Ochoa’s relaunch.

The cost was Moshe Samble’s commission: he has resigned from Starfleet. That thorn is finally out of the sides of the Admiralty- at least officially.

The ship will launch on a new five-year deep space assignment with its former XO at The Con: a seasoned psychologist, humanist and team player named Remy Stokes. She is more appropriate for the mission that a postwar Starfleet had in mind. She is a patient bridge builder who welcomes input from civilian scientists. Rank has its place to her, but she has gone shopping for exploration zeal and expertise. All are welcome at her table.

But Moshe Samble isn’t done with the Ochoa or his friend and former XO Remy yet.

Just before the Ochoa received news of the war and decided to head back, the Ochoa was exploring a distant red giant star undergoing stages of instability. On one of the moons of a surviving gas giant, they detected what appeared to be ruins on lidar sensors. Further, the moon had tantalizing evidence that at one time, someone had attempted to shift its climate. Subspace readings in the area also appeared unusual in an inconclusive way.

Moshe had a feeling they were on the edge of something big- like this was some kind of distant outpost. Remy concurred- though as usual in the less ardent and inflexible way Moshe tends to do things. Remy is open to “exploring further”- a statement Moshe has taken as an all-out agreement that they will make a beeline for that system, known as 31 Aranea; Moshe is sorely mistaken.

For now, the goal is to get Ochoa launched on time, with ample crew.

Mission Summary

Objectives for Mission 0.1
Mission 0.1 is a “Pre-Mission” before our ship officially launches. Mission 0.1 will end upon our relaunch of the Ochoa on its mission and the Captain setting a brief Shakedown course to test engines, sensors, communications.

• Arrive on Proxima Colony, or Proxima Fleet Yards (or if after June 1st, Ochoa itself)
• Meet the Captain
• Begin JPs to meet your fellow crewmates
• Engage in a “Side Trek” according to your department
• Resolve Side Treks and return to the Ochoa, report in
• Launch and do a short Shakedown cruise

Mission 0.1: Opening Setting
Proxima Fleet Yards holds the Ochoa in Slip Six; beyond it is the Jade Jewel of the Federation, Bon Proxima Colony. The Alpha Centauri colonies lie beyond in just a few hours by warp. Here our story begins to coalesce. It is here that our personnel will converge and eventually board the Ochoa to begin its third deep space assignment.
