Welcome to the USS Crazy Horse!

The USS Crazy Horse is an Akira Class heavy cruiser currently at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, Mars, to undergo repair of a design flaw as well as a reconfiguration from carrier to gun ship. While the crew is light duty/shore leave, a new command team arrives.

Our patrol route is Federation space, the Alpha Quadrant, but our mission is anything but routine.

The tales we'll tell on board the USS Crazy Horse center on exploration and discovery with a campaign approach that invites players to do what they do best. Share their lives and adventures -- both personal and professional.

We'll be getting under way shortly. I see that there are some JPs in the works and I would ask that you get them finished this week so that we can start the new mission on Sunday.

Congratulations go to Commander Leigh Carson as our player of the month. She writes for two main characters and one PNPC and had the highest post count for the month! She gets involved, she helps with reporting, and is responsible for our lovely graphics. Job very well done!

We still have some positions open. Until we can find players to fill these slots, I'm asking if anyone would like to write a PNPC? Positions I'd like to fill include:

** Chief Science Officer
** Chief Diplomat
** Counselor
** Flight Control

And of course, if you've a mind to write a minor character in another department, be sure to reach out to the department head.

New Mission will be starting soon -- look for the departure post.

While setting up her quarters, Carson reflects on her career choices through her adult life before having a quick chat with her mother. D'Onofrio does some people watching in a Mars casino, witnessing an interaction between some of the Crazy Horse's science officers. Price and Windsong-Price enjoy their holiday together, thinking about the past and discussing the future.

=/\= Captain Emerson Adams Reporting...

=/\= COMMANDING OFFICER'S LOG =/\=

With Captain Channe's departure and the Crazy Horse in the clutches of a refit team at the Utopia Planitia Fleetyards, I will be dividing my time for the next two months between personal pursuits and getting myself acquainted with both the ship and its mission. Toward that end, I have learned from Commodore Jameson Wainwright we will be on patrol here in the Alpha Quadrant for the forseeable future.

There are some crew changes of note. For one, with the depature of 40 fighters, the position of Group Commander has been eliminated.

New arrivals:
Lt. JG Vincenzo D'Onofrio - Asst. Chief of Security
Lt. Julian Windsong-Price - Chief Intelligence Officer
Captain Taylor Price - Marine Commanding Officer
Commander Leigh Carson - Executive Officer
Petty Officer 3rd Class Callan Armidale - Infiltration Specialist (returning from ELOA for emergency surgery)

Promotions:
Lt. Zig Chura to Chief Engineering Officer and Second Officer

While wrangling with Starfleet to get our open positions filled, I intend to meet with my officers as they return from shore leave. For the new arrivals, I will meet with them personally before putting them on shore leave as well.

Open Positions:
- Chief Science Officer
- Chief Operations Officer
- Chief Flight Control Officer
- Chief Strategic Operations Officer

Location: Utopia Planitia Fleetyards

=/\= PLOT SUMMARY =/\=

Chura reports to sickbay for his physical, giving Bellerose a little bit of static over the DNA sample until she explains. She gives him a clean bill of health.

Later... Channe, Chura, and Wheeler beam down to the abandoned base to begin investigating the reason for the equipment breakdown. Unexpectedly, however, they are recalled to the ship where Channe receives word that a new ship will be continuing the mission. Both he and his First Officer, Lt. Cmdr. Ba'zra Jennings, are being transferred where he will head a task force dedicated to the capture of the Orion Syndicate family responsibile for the attack on the USS Wanderwell that left 57 dead. The Crazy Horse is being called back to Utopia Planitia Fleetyards for a critical refit.

Elsewhere, Captain Emerson Adams learns that her beloved ship, the USS Steadfast, is being removed from service for a much-needed refit and that she is being given command of the USS Crazy Horse -- after two months for shore leave and the ship's refit, that is.

Chura, as the ACEO of the Crazy Horse, reflects on what he's learned about the flaw that has required the refit on the 2388 Akira-class ships as well as the fact that it means no shore leave for him. During her daily workout, Adams begins the difficult transition from her past ship to her new ship.
