Welcome to



The USS Astraea NCC 92178 is a Ronin Class starship commissioned in 2378. Under the command of Captain Blake O’Reilly, Astraea was sent on a five-year exploration mission and returned home in 2383 for a scheduled a refit.

In 2384, Astraea was sent out on another five-year exploration mission but returned only one year later, after an away mission gone wrong left Captain O’Reilly unable to continue his duties. A month after her return she was sent out again, this time under the command of Captain Henry Julius, on another 5-year mission of exploration. Three years later, Astraea limped home after a run in with an unknown enemy left her in need of serious repairs.

Now, after a year of repair and an early refit, Astraea is ready to once again explore the stars. With Captain Julius now on to bigger and better things, Lieutenant Commander Arianna Warren was chosen to be her new Commanding Officer.

Astraea’s home port was reassigned to the newly recommissioned Faltan Station in order to allow her to explore the newly expanded borders of the Sovereignty of Kahless. Her mission is to gather intelligence on the SoK’s movements and the recently defected House of Mo’Kai.




Will you join Lt. Commander Warren as she delves into the unknown?

Status Update: November Edition

Welcome to Astraea’s November Status Update! Wait, how did it get to November already? This year is going by too quickly!

Also, I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Now, onto the update!


Crew

This month saw very little change in our crew. Lieutenant Ren Kannu moved to Chief Engineering Office, Lieutenant Alyse Batari has agreed to be Second Officer, and Kim switched Lieutenant Beto Castillion to an NPC and brought Lieutenant Armi Binai on as our CMO!

During this month’s TF93 O&I, Lieutenant Commander Arianna Warren was promoted to Commander.

Website

The only website changes this month were the crew awards, which can be found here:

Crew Awards

Check them out and nominate a fellow player for an award! (To nominate, please send a PM to the Command Team explaining why you think someone deserves the award.)

Sim

We had a slow start but did 15 posts again this month! Once we finish with the Livermoore repairs and the big JP, we will be moving on to Mission 2, which will include some fun new ideas.

Feel free to post up to April 29, 2389 before 1640 hours.

Mission Recap

Astraea has reached the Livermoore and a team is readying to head over to offer assistance.

Objectives

*Start the patrol along the SoK border to investigate the House of MoKai; and
*Provide aide to the merchant vessel.

Player of the Month

The player of the month for October is Steve, who plays Lieutenant Ren Kannu and Lieutenant Commander Ras Th’zaanaq.

Despite running two sims and leading a busy life, Steve has stepped up to help both IC and behind the scenes countless times this month.

Congratulations Steve!

BFMS

We have all characters on the BFMS already, so I don’t need to nag anyone! Thank you everyone!

Ideas

If anyone has any ideas for character development or even some subplots, share them with us. Shout them from the rooftops if you must! Though please take into consideration time of day and your neighbour’s eardrums.

That’s it for this month’s Status Update! Keep up the good work and let’s show Bravo Fleet what we’re made of!

Any questions, comments, or issues, please don’t hesitate to contact the Command team. We are here for you!

Status Update: October Edition

Welcome to Astraea’s October Status Update!


Crew

Unfortunately, this month I had to remove Rebecca who played Lieutenant JG Jessica Porter, our Chief Engineering Officer for inactivity and lack of communication. I had hoped that I wouldn’t have to do this for a while, but it is what it is.

We’ve had quite a few position shuffles. Starting with Petty Officer 2nd Class Ael Liorae moving into the Chief Operations position from Quartermaster. Lieutenant Ren Kannu has accepted the Chief Engineer position and will be moving over from Security after the current training JP is completed. And finally, once Lt. Ren moves, Lieutenant Seona Caslma will be moving to the Chief Security position, provided she accepts.

Website

I haven’t done anything with the site this month. I’ve not been able to choose a skin I like, so I haven’t done anything there yet. I am planning on putting up crew awards sometime in October. Moving forward, at the end of each month, awards will be doled out. I will post an announcement once I’ve got them up.

Sim

Though it doesn’t quite seem like it, we’ve been quite busy. We did 15 posts in the month of September and have nearly completed Mission 1! I’ve started up a subplot JP and once that’s done, we’ll move on to the final posts of the mission. I’m hoping to be on to Mission 2 by mid October.

Also, this month, I will be looking for someone to fill the 2XO position. If you would like to step up or nominate someone, please send a message to the command team!

Mission Recap

Astraea has delivered supplies to Faltan and set off for her patrol of the SoK border. Along the way, an SOS alerted the crew to a merchant vessel in need of aid along their path.

Objectives

*Do training simulations in the holodeck;
*Start the patrol along the SoK border to investigate the House of MoKai; and
*Investigate and provide aide to the merchant vessel.

Player of the Month

The player of the month for September is Kristin, who plays Lieutenant Alyse Batari. Again!

Kris has been a great asset for Astraea! She has 7 posts to her name for the month of September and she’s always thinking of things she can do with her character and trying to engage with the rest of the crew.
Congratulations Kris!

BFMS

We have all characters on the BFMS already, so I don’t need to nag anyone! Thank you everyone!

Ideas

If anyone has any ideas for character development or even some subplots, share them with us. Shout them from the rooftops if you must! Though please take into consideration time of day and your neighbour’s eardrums.

That’s it for this month’s Status Update! Keep up the good work and let’s show Bravo Fleet what we’re made of!

» Status Update: September Edition

Posted on Sat Sep 1st, 2018 @ 11:06pm by Commander Arianna Warren in General News

Welcome to Astraea’s first Status Update! I will be sending these out on the first of the month to give an overview of everything that happened in the month before and of what our goals are for the upcoming month. If August is anything to go by, September is shaping up to be a fine month for Astraea!

And yes, for those of you on Faltan, I did steal this idea from Steve, among MANY others. :D

Crew

The following people joined us in August:

Lieutenant Alyse Batari, Chief Science Officer;
Lieutenant Beto Castilian, Chief Flight Control Officer; and
Lieutenant JG Jessica Porter, Chief Engineering Officer.

This brought us up to 8 players, two more than we needed to go Active!

Website

Other than the initial set up, I haven’t done much with the site this month. I will be adding crew awards soon. I’m also looking at potential skins for the site and trying to decide on which look I like best.

Sim

What didn’t we do this month? *wipes brow* This has been a labour of love for me, and I’m so pleased with our results so far! We had 11 posts, including the first three posts of Mission 1. This mission is going to be somewhat boring, I know, but there will be more action soon. We will move through this quickly, but feel free to post between April 21, 2389 and April 26, 2389. Have some fun, explore your characters, and get to know one another!

Our crew count and posting levels have allowed us to become officially Active according to Bravo Fleet! Thank you all for your hard work!

Mission Recap

All senior crew have arrived on Astraea and we’ve set off for Faltan to deliver supplies. In the mission briefing, Ari and Ras revealed the mission. Ari also announced that battle simulations would be starting to ensure crew readiness should they come across Klingons in neutral space or have to duck into Klingon space and be caught.

Objectives

*Deliver supplies to Faltan;
*Do battle simulations; both unscheduled and scheduled in the holodeck; and
*Start the patrol along the SoK border to investigate the House of MoKai.

Player of the Month

The player of the month for August is Kristin, who plays Lieutenant Alyse Batari.

Kristin jumped into Astraea with both feet and took off running! She has 5 posts to her name already, and I can’t wait to see what else she gets up to, besides fraternizing with the XO. ;)

Well done Kristin!

BFMS

Well, this was easier than I expected! Every single one of you have gotten your characters up on the BFMS already! Thank you very much! TF93’s Senior Staff use the BFMS to get a glimpse of the sim’s activity, so it’s important to have your characters up. I appreciate all of you being so quick to create your characters there!

Ideas

As I stated above, this mission is going to be fairly boring, but it provides an excellent opportunity for everyone to develop their characters!

If anyone has any ideas for character development or even some subplots, share them with us. Shout them from the rooftops if you must! Though please take into consideration time of day and your neighbour’s eardrums.

That’s it for this month’s Status Update! Keep up the good work and let’s show Bravo Fleet what we’re made of!
