Welcome to the U.S.S. Elysium!
USS ELYSIUM NCC 89000
"We know what we are, but know not what we may be" - William Shakespeare
The U.S.S. Elysium is the first of her class and apart of Starfleet's Ninth (Obsidian) Fleet, under the Command of one the youngest CO in the Fleet, 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 capable with a Ship AI to assist with basic functions.
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.
Our story so far...
Previously on the USS Elysium,
In 2394, and the Elysium was lost. But now, the Elysium returns home, without the Admiral. And the crew, led by Commander Phoenix Lalor, faced an uncertain future ahead. With a crew which is a mix of old and new faces, the Crew of the Elysium sets out to reclaim their place in the Fleet, and to show that the trust Sharr had placed in them was not misplaced. After a year of threats, mutiny, betrayal and weird encounters, the Elysium has survived their first 12 months under the Command of now Captain Lalor.
We join the Elysium as they enter a new year, 2396, though this New Year brings more challenges and more horrors...
USS Elysium follows the Destruction of Romulus timeline in accordance with Fleet Council Measure 046.

Good Morning All,
Here on the Elysium, we recognize that the holiday season is an important time for all concerned regardless of race, religion and creed. Thus with this in mind, from the 12th of December, the posting regulations will be relaxed to allow for those who need to, to travel and to spend time with their families. During the period 12th of December until the 3rd of January, players are not required to post, but may do so, if they wish. On the 4th of January the posting regulations will be back in force and a roll call will be issued. Players will be expected to reply to the roll call within a 7 day period and also expected to post 1 solo post within 7 days after the resumption of normal posting regulations.
With the above, we are now in Roll Call zone.
Each Player will be added to a Roll Call OOC post (Which is not to be sent) and will be expected to post a solo post between the 4/1/20 and the 10/1/20!
I will be noting the Solo posts. Normal JPs can still be undertaken but a solo post is key to the Roll Call.

**Sim Name:** USS Elysium - Or otherwise known as the ELY
Hmm *Checks the website* Oh yes, updated our ship tour, fixed some spelling mistakes on the site. *Whistles innocently* the crew is currently under Christmas posting regulations, but they seem to be ignoring them for the most part, with more posts this month than last.
**Crew Update:** So we have had a busy month crew wise:
We gained: Vice-Consul Radun Dran - Our new diplomatic attaché, Lieutenant Alicia Kelea - A Chief Counselor- *quick someone lock the doors do not let this one escape!*, Lieutenant Daras Til - Our brand new Assistant Chief of Flight Control – Which for us is saying something as we have never had one of them before!
And Lost: Lieutenant Commander Jason Morris, our rather newly appointed Chief of Security – he will be missed and is welcome back at any time
We had several people promoted:
Petty Officer 2nd Class Kaywin-Li Fray to Petty Officer 1st Class(PC)
Lieutenant Jason Morris, to Lieutenant Commander, and Chief of Security And Tactical(PC)
Lieutenant JG Turak to Lieutenant and Assistant Chief of Security and Tactical(PC)
Ensign S’hib to Lieutenant JG(PC)
Legate Anje Brett to Envoy (PC)
Captain Azhul Naxea to Major(PC)
Ensign Lunara Hol to Lieutenant JG(PC)
Lieutenant JG Carter Smith to Lieutenant(PC)
Lieutenant JG William Holt to Lieutenant(NPC)
Petty Officer 1st Class Fernando De La Rosa to Chief Petty Officer(NPC)
Lieutenant Savar cha'Salik hei-Surak Talek-sen-deen to Lieutenant Commander(NPC)
Lieutenant Jessica Vaii to Lieutenant Commander(NPC)
Cadet Senior Grade Madelaine Masters - To Ensign(NPC)
Due to the loss of Commander Morris, Commander Holmes once more steps back into Security Tactical, and she mentioned it to me that no matter what she tries, its like an elastic band on her. And our new Intelligence chief will be Lieutenant Casper Thornhill.
Lieutenant Nevada McKay steps up to assistant chief of Science, assisting our chief of science is not for the faint of heart so I am sure she will be fine with it.
*Checks the list she makes each time she has to do one of these* Yup that’s it.
The USS Elysium is currently in orbit around Casperia Prime. We have a missing crewmember and one who is hitting on the Q for all she is worth. The Captain has authorised the hunt for their missing crew member, who is currently captured by the Orion Slavers.
We hope to rescue him and anyone else soon.
Come January, the Elysium will be launching a Year of Challenges. Each month, there will be a posting challenge for the players. It is just a bit of fun to keep creative juices flowing and these posts will have little effect, unless they want them to, on their character's main lives. And they can even write them about their NPCS if they want.
We will start with: ** January Challenge: The Memory Challenge:**
Write a solo post about a fun memory in your characters past - minimum 1500 words.
These will run alongside our normal missions. And in January we hope to start our next mission: **Season 4- Episode 1 - Cause and Effect**
Users: 24 – 1 Web host
Playing Characters: 24 – 1 Web host
Mission Posts: 137
Personal Logs: 0
Avg Mission Posts/User: 5.71

Good Morning everyone!
Over the next few days, you will see a new mission appear on the drop downs.
This Mission will be titled CHALLENGE MISSION
Every month, I will set a new challenge for you all, you do not have to participate, but it is just a bit of fun to keep your creative juices flowing and these posts will have little affect, unless you want them to, on your character's main lives. And you can even write them about your NPCS if you like.
January 1st is when it will start, and January's title is: The Memory Challenge!
And the Challenge is: Write a solo post about a fun memory in your character's past - minimum 1500 words.
All posts for the challenge must be submitted by the end of the month. And when you post the post the subject should read:
[[The Memory Challenge:
[[The Memory Challenge: "Jumping Jack Flash-bombs" - Lieutenant Sha'nae Ba'au]]
I hope you enjoy these challenges as much as i have creating them.
Go for it crew!
