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.

» Season 3 Kick Off: "Spikes and Ties"

Posted on Sun Apr 13th, 2014 @ 3:24pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Greetings, everyone!

I am very excited to announce the beginning of our new mission, "Spikes and Ties"! This mission will kick off season three for our humble ship and crew, and we will be roleplaying as though there has been about two months in between our departure from the Karemma homeworld and our return to Deep Space 9 for orders. Details of what has happened in the interim will be revealed through roleplay.

This first phase will be a short mission, consisting of only three mission days. The primary purpose of this mission is really a non-shore leave interlude between the last mission and the next. In this period of time, we will get our marching orders, take on new (old) crew, and make preparations for the ship's next mission.

Of particular notice, here are a few highlights from the mission days:

MD-01: New Year's Day 2391! Mid-day celebration to be held at Quark's on Deep Space 9.
MD-02: Captain Hansen and key others will receive new orders from Commodore Genessa Lian.
MD-03: Whole crew briefing regarding new orders. Final preparations to disembark.

We will try to move through this interlude fairly quickly so that we can get to the meat of the action, which is just around the corner!

Two additional announcements:

1. Help Wanted! If you or someone you know is interested in portraying a regularly appearing as a Klingon or Romulan exchange officer, please contact me. You can portray this character as a NPC and do not have to give up your main character.

2. Feeling burned out? If you're struggling with your current character, this interlude is a good opportunity to try something new. If you'd like to swap your current PC out for another with a different position, just let me know!

Happy roleplaying!

» Wrap Up Reminder

Posted on Fri Apr 11th, 2014 @ 10:18pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Please remember Saturday, April 11, is our wrap up day for the current mission. We will be proceeding to a (very brief) interim mission where we receive our new orders, which will include the introduction of the long-term plot arc. Please try to wrap up your joint posts for the current mission by Saturday if at all possible.

Thanks,

» Mission Wrap Up

Posted on Mon Apr 7th, 2014 @ 9:40pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Greetings, Everyone!

I just wanted to set a target date of this coming Saturday, April 12, for us to wrap up this mission and move on to the next. Granted, there are still several loose ends that need to be tied up, but with what is to come, it will be possible for us to follow up on much of that in the next episode. I don't want us to spend too much of this sim year in the previous year, and it's already April, so it seems like a good time to move along.

Please make sure you get those joint posts wrapped up and posted by Saturday! Of course, if we need to backpost anything, we can always do that, too.

Be prepared for a rather large arc to be revealed as soon as this mission is wrapped up -- one which will define much of the backstory for our game for at least the foreseeable future.

Thanks,

CAPT Thomas Hansen
Commanding Officer
