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.

Hello!

Everyone, I must give my sincerest apologies for the difficulties I have been encountering lately. As many of you know, my home sold more quickly than expected, and it left me in a hotel with limited internet access. Once my new home was ready to move in, I have encountered a litany of difficulties with our local internet company (Comcast). Part of the difficulty is that I am in a new community, and there has apparently been some type of difficulty with the underground utilities that were installed far before construction on my unit began. Anyway, they assure me they will have this problem resolved by next Tuesday, so hopefully I will be back up to full capacity by then.

I want us to move ahead and start to pick up greater steam so that we are moving at about the pace we were before all of this unexpected "real life" stuff hit me. That might create a hiccup or two in continuity, but I want us to keep moving forward. You guys are a great group of roleplayers, and I am so proud of the storylines we are creating together!

Incidentally, I have pretty good connectivity this weekend because I am in Dallas with access to internet. :)

Thanks so much!

Josh

» Pics and Such!

Posted on Wed May 28th, 2014 @ 6:51pm by Lieutenant Aya in Out of Character

So, it turns out there's a lot of people without pics. :) I'm about to get off of work for two and a half months. :) If anyone wants help finding / editting a picture to fit their character better, lemme know. I've been fiddling with some photo editting lately and can do some cool stuff with colors and layers. ^.^

PM if curious!


» Mission Map & Episode Timelines

Posted on Mon May 26th, 2014 @ 1:11pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in Website Update

Greetings!

*** UPDATE #1: Mission Map ***
Do you have trouble knowing where the Gemini is and what the galactic neighborhood looks like? Me, too! Since we're going to be operating in the same region of space for a while, I've taken the liberty of creating a mission map that includes some canon and non-canon elements outline the region of space in which we will be operating for at least the next couple of seasons. The image has been posted in the mission notes, but you can also access it directly through a Wiki page:

http://ussgemini.org/index.php/wiki/view/page/59

This page will soon include links to additional Wiki pages outlining detail about the places you see on the map.

*** UPDATE #2: Episode Timelines ***
Do you have trouble knowing *when* everything is happening within the context of a mission/episode? Again, me too! T'Ria's player, Mel, has been kind enough to create mission timelines that will help us know exactly when scenes take place. And, if you're interested, you can go back and read the mission in order from start to finish when all is complete (we will soon provide links directly to the joint posts documented on these pages). T'Ria will be keeping this updated for now, that way there will be consistency in format and details. If you have something you think should be added, just let her know. Here are the links to the last episode and current episode:

Season 3: Episode 1 - Spikes and Ties (http://ussgemini.org/index.php/wiki/view/page/61)
Season 3: Episode 2 - In Such Shallow Graves (http://ussgemini.org/index.php/wiki/view/page/62)

I love all the high quality RP I have been seeing lately. Let's keep up the great writing!
