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!

The last week on the Starbase had been a whirlwind. The reports, recommendations, reassignments, and everything that each of those entailed had worn him out. Terry was happy for the long flight in the Valkyrie…his Valkyrie. At least that’s what he was claiming. An Admiral had told him to keep…

"I am being gone only a matter of weeks and this place, this is being gone into head,": Mila said as she stormed about the Captain's Ready Room on the Black Hawk-B. B, indeed. She hadn't been fully used to the Century class, but the trip through time broke…

Rumors had always spread through a starbase like the Rigellian Flu. And that’s all they were, rumors. That is until the new transfers into the Wing slowed to a crawl. Then his inquiries into the rest of the starfighters to make up the Wing were met with negative responses. Terry…

It finally happened. The USS Saratoga had arrived at long last to Gavara to serve as a semi-permanent guard as the colony continued its struggle to rebuild. The mission had had an unexpected bonus, as some of the Black Hawk's former crew, including Ensign Crehan and Senior Chief Rasputin, had…

It had taken Ronin a few days to design the escape room for Commander Geisler and he had done quite a bit of delving in the ships computer researching in order to come up with something unique. He was quite proud of it and hoped that she would like it…

Welcome to Lieutenant JG Loren Bolivar, our half-Bolian Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer!

Posted on 06 May 2023 @ 8:34pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Mission Update

We did it! Thank you to all who contributed to completing our first mission in nearly 2 years.

A new mission will be coming down the pipeline very soon, just as soon as a couple writers and I can get a JP written. We'll be returning to a place very deep in the Black Hawk's lore... a space station named Razmena.

Obi-Wan Kenobi once called Mos Eisley a hive of scum and villany. Razmena is worse... much worse.

While we wait, feel free to get your medical checkups, grab a drink at Talons, enjoy the holodeck, or whatever else strikes your fancy. We have a lot of new and old characters on board.

Maybe we need a party on the holodeck to break the ice...

Hi all,

This week, I will finally be able to start hitting tags again. It might take me a couple days to catch up, but you can count on it!

Also coming this week... tagging requirements.

Thank you to those who have been tagging when you have been able to in this last month. The Command team is aware that there are a couple players who haven't written at all since the Black Hawk initiated its soft reboot, and there are other players who've been MIA for a while. We'll be addressing that in the coming days so that we can keep the sim moving.

I'm also working on contingency plans so that I'm not the reason the game can stall out. More news on that to come...

Hello all,

Please do not let the email title startle you. I'm 2 weeks into my new job, and my oh my... It's insanely busy. I'm doing my best right now, and I can't make promises about when I can tag again. Until I can settle into a rhythm, tagging requirements are still suspended. All that I ask is that everyone tag when they can.

I still check messages regularly on Discord, especially on Thursday when Picard drops. I look forward to the end of the season and integrating a few of the developments in over here. Should be interesting!

Hope you all are doing well.
