The Finnean Crisis

Post Count: 147

It is now November 2388, a little more than three months since the Federation ended the Consortium coup. The USS Vasco de Gama, a Nova-Class Starfleet vessel patrolling the mouth of the Finnean Convergence Zone, comes across a 100-year old Class Nine Probe. Their engineers quickly uncover the first page of a great mystery, a garbled message stating that a great danger is about to eclipse the Federation. The recording lasts for minutes, but most of the information had been lost due to years of aged equipment and hardware.

Normally, such a discovery would be inventoried and carefully studied. However, the crew of the Black Hawk is summoned back to active service to discover the origin of the probe, determine if the Federation is actually in danger…

And find out why the message was sent by Harvey Geisler himself.

But first, the crew of the USS Black Hawk must retrieve the probe from Deep Space 15, a station that was abandoned by the Federation during the Consortium Crisis and restore the balance of power in the Finnean System.

Crossing Over

Post Count: 108

With the crisis at Finnea Prime averted and the arrival of Starfleet reinforcements to restore order to the planet, the Black Hawk has been released to pick up where the Vasco da Gama left off at the Finnean Convergence Zone.

After weeks of study, the Black Hawk is finally able to take a chance to enter the zone. During entry, various ships systems fail, resulting in damage to not just the mighty vessel, but the ship as well. To make matters worse, the crew is stricken with amnesia. With no computer to guide them, the crew must not only restore the ship, but their memories as well, if they will have any chance of surviving the Convergence Zone!

The Search Begins

Post Count: 13

The veteran crew of the Black Hawk is no stranger to being cut off. Trapped inside the Zone, the mighty ship hides and conducts repairs suffered from its deadly encounter with the locals. The clock, however, keeps ticking. Time is running out to find the great danger that the probe foretold, and their first encounter was certainly not it.

Lying in wait, the Black Hawk has quietly begun mapping the lightyears surrounding their entry point. To no one’s surprise, the system is quite populated, despite the random spatial anomalies spread throughout. Not much else, however, can be achieved by scan.

Captain Geisler directs the ship to a system with five planets, rather a system with graveyards that were once five planets. The largest surviving chunk features a large domed habitat, with an orbital station, and appears to be a hub for trade and commerce. Deciding that this would be a source of information, an Away Team is dispatched to learn more, while the ship itself studies the system, hoping to find a clue about the great threat that awaits...
