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.

Congratulations, everyone!

I am pleased to inform you USS Gemini was selected as the Bronze Unit of Merit for Task Force 72 for the month of October! I believe this is largely due to the fact that, even as larger mission-related posts are going on, so many of you are doing such an excellent job writing side stories and developing your characters.

It is truly an honor to write with each of you. Thank you for all you do to make this a great place for RP!

Warmly,

» 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

» 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
