Important Notice: Immediate Attention 02/18/2017
Welcome to the U.S.S Elysium.
The U.S.S. Elysium is the first of her class and a flagship to Starfleet's Ninth (Obsidian) Fleet, under the Command of one of the Joint Fleet Command, the Elysium's role is one of diplomacy, scientific discovery and support in times of need.
Boasting the most advanced technology available to the Federation and being fully holographic. The Elysium is home to some of the brightest minds in Starfleet as well as some unique positions, there is the Office of Internal Affairs and the elusive Department of Temporal Investigations which allows the Elysium to respond to any issue in her vicinity or threat to the timeline. There is also the first of 4 mobile branches of Starfleet Academy where cadets from all around the Federation can get hands-on experience aboard a fully operational Starfleet Vessel under the watchful gaze of an official representative of the Academy and one of the most experienced Admirals the Federation can offer.
The story so far...
The year is now 2394, and the Elysium is lost. Starfleet has deployed a research team to investigate the disappearance of Admiral Sharr and his crew. However, their efforts are in vain, and after six months only passive searches are taking place as life continues.
The Elysium has been stranded in the Andromeda Galaxy after suffering a crippling attack that forced the ship through space/time leaving her a floating wreck. Six months have passed, and the crew have patched up the ship as best as they can. As life started to return to normal, the accidental death of the Executive Officer and rumours of mutiny have caused the crew to be on edge yet again. Tensions grow aboard the former flagship as a thorough investigations sweep through the crew and their activities in attempt to identify the ringleaders of the mutiny.
Admiral Sharr had activated the Artificial Intelligence program he and a colleague had been working on for several years, the activation of Alice has unnerved a lot of the crew, unsure on how to act around this new life form. Alice is unique within the concept of AI's, she can think and act for herself and is entirely capable of taking control of her code. Her primary objective is the safety of her home, the Elysium, and that of the one she see's as her maker, Sharr.
We join the Elysium as they enter a new year, though this new year brings more challenges and more horrors...
