Welcome to the USS Traveller!

“Your own life, or your band's, or even your species' might be owed to a restless few—drawn, by a craving they can hardly articulate or understand, to undiscovered lands and new worlds.”
Carl Sagan

+++

Towards the end of the 25th Century, the Federation has fought wars, brokered peace, and gained the stability that only a warrior could dream of. Federation science advances, new colonies flourish, and Starfleet rebuilds and licks its wounds. But what advances can be made without new discovery? Without sacrifice?

For some there is a deeper desire, to see what lies on the far shore and sail beyond it to the next one. For those, a better understanding of known space, and even the shrinking remoteness of the Delta and Gamma Quadrants holds no appeal. For those restless few there is a rallying cry, a point for all who seek to sail strange forbidding seas: a new five-year mission into the unknown.

The Traveller beckons.

Using an experimental technology Starfleet intends to send a ship beyond the Galactic Barrier, and out into the darkness between galaxies. Its destination will be Messier 4, a globular cluster orbiting our very own Milky Way galaxy. Millions of unexplored stars and strange new worlds await the brave and foolish who crew the starship Traveller. For whilst leaving this galaxy is the work of scientists and theorists, their return is far from certain. The machinery is too large to fit within a ship, and quite possibly may only work once.

And that isn’t even taking into account the fact that when map makers stop making maps, they tend to write the warning ‘Here be dragons’.

GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS!

Huum, didn't think I was going to go with that greeting every time, but its growing on me. Like a nice single malt. Or black mould. Any hey, time for the monthly pep talk and news bulletin type thingy.

So our very own Lieutenant Tolkath S'chqenr T'Jedf Tolkath (Who has won all the awards by fitting that many letters into a name) actually won Player Of The Month for Task Force 72, of which we are a proud member. Tolkath, buddy, come on up here and receive your giant pile of not much. Mostly bragging rights. Feel free to print this email off and put it on your car as a bumper sticker, give the cops something to ponder when they pull you over for speeding.

I assume this award was given for valiantly protecting the Traveller’s honour in glorious single combat, sure you did us proud.

Now I know things have slowed down a smidge, and by a smidge I mean we’re getting outpaced by an arthritic snail. But I have a cunning plan. A plan so cunning I could put a tail on it and call it a fox. We’re currently wrapping up some smaller JP’s, but will move into a large post where we move towards resolution and escape. There is light folks, it is coming.

You’re GM, DM or CO (The acronyms are mine, all mine! Bwuhahaha)

GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS!

Well, this is a two for one newsletter thing-a-me-bob, so here goes. We have a new writer joining us playing the role of Lieutenant Colette Bache-Gabrielsen, our new CMO. No doubt they will come to realise that we're all accident prone goobers who will all die horrible deaths befitting only the poorest Red Shirts.

(And who says Doctors can't get to the centre seat, attrition is an option people.)

Either way welcome! Anything you hear from these folks are horrible scandalous lies.

And this also marks our 6th writer in the ensemble cast of Travellers.

We are by the tenants of the Bravofleet bylaws allowed to call ourselves an active sim. Which I assume means we get covered in a cloth and left in a warm place to double in size before we're made into croissants or something. We were active before, we're active now, and I couldn't be more pleased of the lot of you.

Expect you.

You know who you are.

;)

Your benevolent overlord,

Andrew AKA The Space Gypsy.

The scene that opened to the first responders entering deck five was one of carnage. Lighting panels flickered or lay shattered on the floor, and the air hung heavy with the scent of smoke and burning chemical fires. A droning low-pressure alarm wailed somewhere, reminding everyone there that the hull…

“Hey, can I get your opinion on this?”

Jenkins let out a chilly breath and looked back at Puck as the cryo bay tech held out a folded assortment of paper. It was uneven, with creases along the flat edges from where new folds had been made over old, and…

So...we made it.

We have left behind the Milky Way galaxy, and whilst I can hear the groaning of my astronomy lecturers at the phrasing, it's apt. We're now on the wrong side of the Galactic Barrier, and so far no sign that any of the crew have manifested any…
