The Frontier is ready to push back.

On Stardate 65790.5, a 100-year old probe emerged from the Finnean Convergence Zone in the Gamma Quadrant. Most of the data it contained was corrupted, save for what remained of an emergency beacon. The message it carried was one of danger and warning, delivered by none other than Captain Harvey Geisler.

Recalled from Shore Leave in the Alpha Quadrant, Captain Geisler summons the best Starfleet has to offer and takes command of the USS Black Hawk-A. Their destination is the mysterious Finnean Convergence Zone where nothing has ever gone in, and whatever has ever emerged, has not emerged alive.

But somewhere, inside the zone, awaits both incredible opportunities for exploration, and perhaps the greatest danger the Federation has ever faced. Can the crew of the USS Black Hawk find this threat before it is too late?

» A Special Announcement!

Posted on 08 Feb 2018 @ 2:40am by Captain Harvey Geisler in Sim Announcement



Once a year, Ongoing Worlds hosts the Tournament of Simulations. Since 1999, the Tournament has issued over 150 awards to many, many simulations, Star Trek and otherwise. This year, I had the pleasure of participating as a judge, getting to review 7 our of the 23 participants.

Imagine my surprise to learn that the Black Hawk was recognized by this event. Three different judges reviewed our writings, and gave our simulation very high marks, earning us recognition in the “Great Star Trek” Category.

Per the rules of the tournament, judges had to review ten of our posts(in order, not 10 random posts) and score us on several criteria, including characters, story, readability, and more. When the sim was entered, it was indicated that the 10 posts would come from the Mission “Endgame.” The first post on the list was “The Battle Ends…” and ending with “Checking on the Boss.” One judge especially remarked how well written the loss of our ship was.

We were not the only sim from Bravo Fleet to enter, but we were the only one to win the award. The competition was tough, and to be recognized is truly an honor. I want to thank all of you for your fantastic contributions to the sim, as well as your encouragement and participation. Just being able to compete was made possible by all of you, and winning would have been impossible without you all.

I look forward even more to 2018, to this time where our characters have no clue who they are, and to what the uncertain future holds for all of us. Writing with all of you inspires me to continue exploring strange new worlds, and I hope this will inspire you as well.

Thank you all again. I love you all!

-Andrew / HG
