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 24th 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!

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.

[Deck 5 Science Lab 1]

Remas entered the science lab and marvelled at-...all the still unopened boxes.

There were examples from Page Industries, Axelrod Corp, and Ingram Nanoscale Systems, and Remas could name them all because the equipment they held was still in their duraplast packing crates. He frowned, walking…

Remas entered the armoury and looked around. It wasn't the first time he'd entered such a space on a starship, given the last few decades of war and strife across the Federation they were as commonplace as holodecks.

But this one was different. This one was on his ship.

Arivek Zhuri found himself standing in front of a large set of bay windows, staring out at the Traveller beyond. The ship was set to launch soon, thus bringing a close to the project he'd poured himself into for the past three years.

Three years...

It was hard to believe…

The Jefferies tube was not designed for a Tellarite, and by hells blue fire Gark was sure tired of arguing that point. A Bolian could fit in there, and a human (naturally), but a noble Tellarite? Designed for multi-species access his triple clefted buttocks.

“Commander? If you want to come up front we’re about to drop out of warp, should be a sight to see.”

Remas didn’t take long to exit the berthing area of the Runabout, the pent-up energy of being cooped up for a week giving him the sort of nervous twitch…
