Fleet Captain

D. Grisham

We are (in) the Vanguard of Starfleet!

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have a full roster again and are embarking on a wonderful mystery mission. Its what the original Enterprise was about, 'To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before'. I have no idea what Lindsay has in store for us, but I'm sure it will be good!!! Please keep to the posting/AWOL rules. Let's try and keep the Van in the green this month!! 
Last MOTD Update: 15.02.2013

I know I'm a little late this month getting to the MOTD but I wanted to publicly give kudos to Charles Gilmore and Joana Ribeiro for their creativity and dedication last month in the Zebra Club thread. I know I've been entertained. And good job to the rest of you too. It says a lot about a ship and her crew when the XO can disappear on LOA and everyone keep moving right along. It seems every month you all impress me more and more and make me proud to be a part of your crew. So my hat off to you all.

Start Date: 15 Sept 2013

The Vanguard is one of six ships being sent out on a deep-space exploration mission outside of Federation space. Currently, the USS Ticonderoga (Concord-class) is the Vanguard's closest point of contact for the first two weeks.

Current Status:

After encountering astral eddies, the CO had a dream/vision revolving around a people who seem to believe the CO will have a huge impact on their society. Driven by the CO's unexplained urges to visit a planet in a nearby system, the Vanguard has met a new species called the Sorriian's. The Yalizi from the vision/dream, are in fact a real indigenous species on the planet. Meanwhile, mysterious objects are starting to appear on the ship, taking the place of previous objects. Where did they come from? And why?

Dramatis Personæ:

  • Vice-Admiral Randi Southard
  • Arana ('are-a-nah') - Yalizi Dowhil & mysterious Yalizi woman from CO's vision
  • Commander Sardrey Vorb - CO of the Sorrian Guard vessel Terahltz
  • Dr. Gorlin Seddrel, Anthropologist
  • Brem Nadii Korentz, Defence Officer
  • Chairperson Marsden Sil- elected leader of the Sorriians

    Yalaca - Yalizi name for their planet
    dorwhil - a Yalizi healer, who is a very important person in the village
    Sola - a Yalizi god symbolizing light
    brem - a rank in the Sorriian military just under Commander (the command rank)
