USS Southern Cross

Visit Site

Borderland: territory at or near a border, fringe, a vague intermediate state or region. Words too true when it comes to the area of space between Primary Federation worlds and the Klingon border has been known as the Borderlands. Whilst the area is dotted with Federation worlds, it is the other worlds which make the majority of the area that define its status. Neutrality or non aligned to any party. The price of individuality and non conformity lead to an area considered almost primitive in Federation eyes. Worlds driven to famine via drugs and crime…worlds ruled from above by decadent Orion Syndicate overlords…neutral system with corrupt governments and self governed military’s…and of course the frontier worlds…

In the past two-hundred years Starfleet has had trouble creating order within the region, much less a sense of peace. With the recent changes in the command echelons, those in overall charge of the region started looking outside the box as they saw the rising need to attempt yet again to bring a semblance of order and stability to the Borderlands and another pair of eyes to the Klingon border. It was time to let a cowboy deal with cowboys.

Jack Lashmore a native of a former Orion Syndicate run world Driaan V, now a member of the United Federation Of Planets, is reactivated out of retirement to take on this daunting task.

The USS Southern Cross will be charged with patrolling the borderland and the nearby Klingon Border…a volatile position…between pirates and a warrior culture at civil war…

Equally the Commanding Officer is happy to deal with any and all inquiries.

Captain Jack Lashmore
Commanding Officer

Of fair height and build Jack's presence is often amplified by his casual air in appearance and general mood. Blue eyes, medium length hair, a trimmed beard usually complimented with an often ever-present soft smirk. A man with a definite swagger of his own.
Though this has an opposite, from the casual and approachable to the angry and reproachful, when Jack falls to the depressions of his past - such times ever a dark aura could be felt about him.

Lieutenant Commander Alexander Night
Executive Officer

Alex is very much aware of his appearance, and is not afraid to use it to his pleasure or advantage (though the would take care, if at all possible for the other persons not to be harmed in the process). He's of a generally friendly disposition, always ready to flash a smile one's way, though as often as it is genuine, so often it is faked, though he has perfected the 'faking' skill over the years so only a few can tell when he's putting on a face.

As he is an orphan, Alex very streetwise and and adaptable, and very aware of both his strengths and weaknesses. Being a man without a family, he's quite happy actually, knowing he can do the job he loves, which in this case is going 'above and beyond' the call of duty, for his beloved Federation of planets.

Lieutenant Torrna Maliya MD
Chief Medical Officer

A brilliant physician, specialised in combat medicine, general surgery and virology. She posesses vast medical knowledge that supplant her specialization knowledge, and she isn't afraid to let it show. On the other hand, the Hipocratic Oath, the Nightingale Pledge and the rest are often ignored or thrown aside when it comes to Maliya, as she calls herself the healer of the body, the counselors she considers the healers of the mind. She's got a sarcastic sense of humor and approach to life, and will mince no words when she has an opinion, and considers herself the higher authority when it comes to things medical, so orders from superior officers will often go disobeyed.
