Star Trek: Cygnus


Welcome to the USS Cygnus!

The USS Cygnus is a Nebula-class heavy cruiser which has seen decades of Starfleet service. After a recent refit, the ship has been assigned to the Fourth Fleet in Task Force 9 along the Breen border. As a Federation ship-of-the-line, her mission includes exploration, diplomacy, and defense, and in this often-lawless region, her presence is necessary to keep the peace and show the flag. Task Force 9 has been tasked with securing the trailing-coreward section of the Alpha Quadrant where the Federation intersects with Tzenkethi, Ferengi, Breen, and Kzinti space, an area that has long been noted for the porousness of the Federation's borders to raiders.

Thanks to the stabilization of the Barzan wormhole, this region is now home to the only reliable connection between the Alpha and Delta Quadrants, which has significantly upset the balance of power, and so the border is more dangerous than ever, necessitating that ships like the Cygnus hold the line and keep the situation from descending into chaos.

The Breen Frontier has long been the target of Breen and Kzinti predations—the Cyngus will stop them.

The Deneb Sector hides wonders and secrets—the Cyngus will find them.

The many diverse worlds in this area are tired of being ignored by the Federation—the Cyngus will bring them into the fold.

Will you be with us for this journey?

The USS Cygnus is a proud member of Bravo Fleet and of Task Force 9.

Pope sat in the centre seat, her eyes on the view screen, the slowly rotating planet below. The science team had reported interesting findings but nothing to cause alarm. She exhaled slowly, so far everything was going according to plan.

The silence of the bridge was broken by a console…

Abrum glanced over at the chronometer. 20:52.

"Computer confirm the location of Captain Stafford."

"Captain Stafford is in his ready room."

He tapped his combadge. "Abrum to Maxwell, forgetting something Captain?"

"Shit." Max whispered breathlessly. He'd only meant to swing by his Ready Room to pick up a few PADDs…

Abrum read through the latest report of the teams working on the tactical systems. It seemed the new Chief certainly like to direct engineerings teams to do work. =/\="Micca to McTavish, can you swing by engineering when you have a moment."=/\=

McTavish replied, =/\="On my way. McTavish out." =/\=

"Hey Spangler, heard you had something going on," Lisald asked, once he was within distance of a conversation. Ten minutes ago, while overseeing a dig with Team 3, he was told Team 2 something very interesting to look at. Spangler had not called him over comms to tell him…

Stifling a yawn, Neshaa stepped into sickbay. It was her second trip in as many days, having dutifully stopped by the previous morning for her boarding physical. Today she was here on business, and therefore headed straight to the nurse's station. "Good morning," she greeted, recognizing the crewman on duty…
