The Golden Stars lurked in the shadows. The Consortium destroyed from within. The Dolmoqour used the best parts of yourself to betray your kin.

For the last two years, the crew of the Akira-Class USS Black Hawk-B have been forced through the tumbler where rocks become precious gems. This ship and crew now are among the best and the brightest in the Gamma Quadrant. Some have started families, others have found love, and others find solace in the bottom of a bottle.

The USS Black Hawk is now returning to the unknown, no longer on missions to dig and investigate deep, dark secrets, but to boldly go where no one has gone before. Little do any of them know that what they will soon encounter will be their greatest test of all!

Are you among the brave, bold, and curious in the Federation? Do you want to be a part of a decorated sim that has received multiple accolades from the simming community at large, including being recognized as a 2018 Squiddie recipient? Then the Black Hawk is for you!

John decided that his best bet would be to get the initial meetings with the Department Heads out of the way before the ship left dock. With the Security Chief meeting under his belt, his next scheduled stop was the Chief Operations Officer. Going to their respective departments might be…

John decided that his best bet would be to get the initial meetings with the Department Heads out of the way before the ship left dock. And his next one was with the Chief Intelligence Officer. If he were honest with himself, it was one that he really wasn't sure…

Just because Harvey possessed extensive medical training didn’t keep him from having a disdain for his former profession. He’d held several Chief Medical assignments, and there honestly wasn’t a job he hated more. What made his morning inspection of sickbay worse was that the ship only had five medical personnel…

The convoy was two hours overdue.

If he hadn't been already, Harvey would have been pissed off. Instead, his frustration was left to grow each minute. He knew supplies were short all across the quadrant, a fact further impeded by piracy and other attrition throughout operational areas.

But this was…

Harvey had always known that the Black Hawk-A would never have been a permanent home. What he had failed to anticipate was how temporary it would be. All his career, he had moved from assignment to assignment year after year. The longest he'd ever stayed in one place was Starbase…

Hi everyone,

It's been a couple months since the survey, and I'm sure everyone is wondering what is up. Those of you on Discord already have an idea, but I wanted to share here that my current focus is on resuming Gamma Command first. This is largely because the nature of the GC sim doesn't have as much history as the Black Hawk, and it's easier to slide back into writing.

Does that mean I'm done with Black Hawk? No. It just means that BH will take more of my resources to relaunch. I still haven't settled with what to do about the ship itself, or whether or not I will officially replace my CO character. Too many variables in my personal life.

For now, I'm focusing on GC while still trying to fix a few things in my personal life. There are 9 players on Black Hawk, and 7 of them are on GC. Should Milo and T'Mari wish to join us there with new characters, they are welcome to do so. But for now, BH will remain in limbo until such time is presented to me.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot me a email, or catch me over on Discord. Thanks all.
