In a task force you need a good mixture of starships, destroyers, frigates, light cruisers, explorers etc, however, one key element missing from 93’s arsenal and that is a carrier class. The carriers principal role is to provide the primary offensive firepower along with such classes as Heavy Cruisers and Dreadnoughts, while the other ships provide defense and support. The peacetime mission is to conduct forward presence operations, to help shape the strategic environment, deter conflict, build interactions with allies, and respond to crises when necessary. Missions include:
– Gaining and maintaining control including regions, choke points and open space.
– Protection of commercial and military shipping.
– Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief (HA/DR)
– Surveillance/Intelligence to achieve and maintain a comprehensive operational picture including relevant planets of interest.
– Establishing superiority or supremacy in an area by seizing and maintaining control of designated airspace.
– Operations in support of the peacetime presence mission, including supporting Starfleet diplomacy through cooperative engagement with designated allied forces, normal peacetime operations, and shows of force.
The primary storyline for the simm will be circled around the C’hakilian Empire and the Krazzle Republic. The Federation has all but forgotten about these now lesser governments especially in wake of the virus that was killing the C’hakilian Empire. With the help of Captain Murdock in 2381 a cure was found after losing a population of 4.2 million. C’hakilian’s have been using this virus as a smoke screen as they started to reclaim lost territories to the North and West, expanding from their five conquered races to seven. Tensions are raised between the Krazzle Republic and C’hakilian Empire, as the Ascension discovers a fleet of six Krazzle Republic starships were wiped out without trace within an unexplored region of space ahead of a meeting with the Federation at Karr.
Attacks continue between the C’hakilians and the Krazzle Republic borders as war threatens to breaks out bringing the USS Ascension right into the middle, can the Federation just standby and watch? With very few in the fleet that remember the horrors of the Federation and C’hakilian war, all eyes look to the USS Ascension to keep the peace in the hope Bravo Fleet Admiralty heed Ascension’s warnings as the C’hakilians look to break the terms of the Armistice .
Lieutenant Commander Roberto Dellucci
Roberto will quite happily spark up a conversation with anyone, with a happy and social persona about him. He uses this as a technique to deflect attention from himself, a subject he rarely talks about or likes talking about. He has also a keep interest in observing behaviours, watching for micro expressions or leakage of a persons true feelings. He founds it fascinating and continuously learning especially regarding non human behaviours.
