Brief History


The Starship Gemini was named for the Graeco-Roman myth of Castor and Pollux. In the myth, the twins shared a human mother but different fathers. Pollux was the son of the god Zeus and therefore immortal. Castor, however, was the son of the mortal Tyndareus; he, too, was also mortal. When Castor died, Pollux asked Zeus to let him share in his immortality, and they were transformed into the constellation Gemini. Today, they were the patrons of sailors on Earth, Saint Elmo's light.

Following the Dominion War, there came a decade's long fragile peace in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Starfleet slowly returned to the days of exploration, and the Galaxy-class USS Gemini NCC-72635 was assigned to the front lines of the final frontier.

Following her mission of exploration, Gemini went through a major overhaul due to years of service to Starfleet. She was to return to her duty of exploration; however, the destruction of Romulus fundamentally changed the balance of power in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, and Gemini anticipates a mission of humanitarian and peacekeeping duties, perhaps deep within the Romulan frontier.

» Wrapping Up

Posted on Sun Oct 26th, 2014 @ 1:49pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Everyone,

I know there are several loose ends with this mission, but we need to wrap it up to move on to the next. I would like to ask for you to please put finishing touches on any outstanding joint posts before Tuesday at midnight. This will allow us to begin a new mission on November 1. While I realize this is abrupt, I think it serves our best interests to expedite the conclusion of this episode and gain momentum with something fresh and new.

Thanks,

CAPT Thomas Hansen
Commanding Officer

» Mission Update

Posted on Sat Oct 11th, 2014 @ 12:04pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Hi, all! Here is a brief mission update to help us all stay on the same page:

We are currently in MD-05, although I know there are some pending posts on a range of different days. As always, a special thank you to T'Ria who manages our mission timeline (http://ussgemini.org/index.php/wiki/view/page/62). Here is a summary of what is going on:

- LTJG Nwaro Polak, ENS Cindy Chandler, and ENS Elohiran Optun arrived from Deep Space 9 by runabout. With them was a Vorta by the name of Randala who had been kept as a prisoner by the Orion Syndicate in the Alpha Quadrant.

- About mid-day, we confirmed the odd energy field that LTJG Aidan Datari and PO1 Aidon Jetzi was exposed to is the source of their odd symptoms and the ship isn't in danger of some type of contaminant.

- Shortly thereafter, two ships arrived using the same dimensional shifting technology. They identified themselves as the M'Yonta and stated a claim to New Bajor. They are harvesting the rich geothermal energy of the planet, and they have ordered us to withdraw. The ship was placed on standing yellow alert as the ships are still in orbit, threatening the Gemini.

- Mid-afternoon, CAPT Hansen received confirmed orders from Starfleet Command that LCDR Elizabeth "Siren" Stone is being recalled to Deep Space 9 effective immediately. In collaboration with LCDR Gregory O'Shea, CWO Curither Bran has been made interim security chief.

- Late in the evening, CAPT Hansen and LT Aya have gone to visit with the Vorta to gather more information about her imprisonment with the Orion Syndicate as well as what she knows about the M'Yonta.

- There an on-going investigation regarding LT Winchester's verbal assault on LT Aya, and the captain is determining whether the misconduct warrants non-judicial punishment.

I would like for us to continue apace so that we can wrap up this mission and move on to the next soon!

Thanks,

CAPT Thomas Hansen
Commanding Officer
USS Gemini


» Sorry For Brief Delay In Responses From Me

Posted on Thu Oct 2nd, 2014 @ 1:15am by Lieutenant Commander Gregory O'Shea MD in General News

Hello all,

I just wanted to offer my apologies for the lack of activity on my part on the last few days.

My friends was in a rather serious car accident and, well, he's doing better now, but it was touch and go for a few days.

Thereafter I returned home...only to find that my laptop had died. As in completely died, wouldn't even turn on - when I did try to turn it on, the damned thing started billowing out smoke. So yeah, there's that. I've since bought a new laptop, hence how I am now able to write this message. I bought it yesterday, it's a nice enough laptop but they didn't have a laptop with a larger screen that had even vaguely decent specs so I've had to go with an average sized model. My wallet hurts - ouch.

Along with that I'm settling back into University life, which is hectic to say the least. People just don't seem to understand that when studying law, despite the relatively small amount of time spent in lectures, you have to spent a lot of time in private study. If you just attend the lectures, write stuff down and then attend the exam and hope to get a decent mark, you are thoroughly screwed!

Assuming nothing else goes wrong, I will be responding to tags and/or be on the IRC channel this evening if anyone needs to get in touch with me - plus I can actually check my emails now, so if anyone has anything urgent to discuss with me, well, get in touch :)

Christopher
