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!

It had only been a few hours since he met with Commanders Reynolds, Di Pasquale, and Geisler where they made the decision to send two Away Teams to Razmena. With that plan now in motion, it was time to brief the remaining senior staff and outline their objectives for the…

It had been two days since the Black Hawk had arrived at Gavara. Thus far, it had been quiet. So quiet, in fact, that the crew finally had a chance to breathe and relax. No one knew who actually organized it, but word had spread through the ship that the…

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…

For all of you who opened this update and braced for the worst... we're not closing.

The last time I messaged everyone, we were in the heat of the summer. It was a crazy time for many of us, and the GM team made the decision to suspend tagging requirements during that time.

September is here. For some of us, our kids are back in school. And, for many of us, life hasn't stopped being crazy. Our players have navigated deaths in the family, hospital visits, severe medical conditions, and all around crazy life. Some of us are still navigating those things.

As such, tagging requirements remain suspended. Please tag when you can, and thank you for you patience as we work through this slow period.

If you have any questions, or any ideas you'd like to see play out, please ping me directly on the site or on Discord. Thanks all.

» A Bit of Slowness

Posted on 07 Jul 2023 @ 7:51pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Out of Character

Hello everyone,

I wanted to shoot out a quick message. Normally, the summer months are slower than others. This period seems to be exceptional for other reasons.

We have a couple players who have been dealing with some medical issues. We also have a couple players (including myself) who have been slammed with work and other projects.

Thank you for bearing with us as we move forward. As of now, tagging requirements aren't being enforced due to the rise in these unexpected events. I've always declared that real life comes first, and I appreciate everyone's patience as we handle our situations.

Even though requirements are suspended, please do try to hit tags whenever possible. This will help keep us from stalling out and keeping the stories moving.

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...
