The year is 2391. A Federation civil war is on the horizon. Choose your side wisely.

In 2390 Federation President G’ath was assassinated during the christening ceremony of the USS Redemption, the new flagship for the United Federation of Planets. The maiden voyage of the Redemption sought to locate and apprehend G’ath’s assassins, but instead Captain Ashcart and his crew unearthed a conspiracy so deep that it rocked the United Federation of Planet’s to its core.

The year is now 2391 and the Federation is sitting on a knife-edge. A civil war is looming between those loyal to newly elected Federation President, Elesa Zal, and those rogue elements operating in the shadows to topple the Federation Council as we know it. The “Sixth Fleet” has defected from Starfleet and now operates under an independent banner of hostility and destruction; the “Confederacy of the Underdark” seeks independence for the planet of Andor, willing to achieve this aim by any means necessary; and the “Kaal Taan” are a Bajoran terrorist organisation intent on reversing the recent admission of Bajor into the Federation.

Elsewhere in the galaxy the Romulan home world has been devastated by a new race of beings known only as the “Ee”. Romulan Praetor Sahrin has forged an uneasy alliance with his counterparts in the Alpha Quadrant, beginning a new era of cooperation between the Romulan people and the Federation.

The Redemption’s mission is to enforce peace within the Federation and to extend and arm of friendship beyond its borders. If you feel you have what it takes to serve on board the Federation flagship, register your interest using the “join” link on this page. Captain Ashcart is waiting to receive your communiqué.

Hello to all my fellow Redemption players. This is my status of the sim update. I have good news we had a pretty good run last month and netted a nice number of awards from the fleet.

I want to highlight two awards specifically.
Lieutenant Commander Alexei Jordan recieved the Player of the Month award for putting out consistent, quality character driven posts. Congratulations!

And our own Lieutenant Mikail Kolmak recieved the Writer of the Month award for taking the first steps towards fleshing out a character I believe will be interesting and fun to play with. Keep it up!

We as a sim also recieved the Silver Unit of Distinction award. It might not have seemed like it but we had a good month last month. The Redemption may move slow but we produce quality writing.

For a full list of awards I will put a link to the Theta Fleet article at the bottom.

I know I speak for everyone on the command staff when i say how very proud I am of each of you and I look forward to many more years of great stories to come!

Hello crew of the Redemption, I know I have been slightly lax in my normal updates but I do have good news to report. We can welcome a new member of the ship to the fold, Stephen who will be playing our new Marine XO and Wing Commander Major Edward (Dragon) Cagney. So help me welcome him on board!

The Theta Fleet Awards have been posted for July and we were lucky enough to have four of our crew recognized. They have begun a new awards system to highlight exemplary writers and players for the quarter so I will start with that.

XO of the Quarter(Second Quarter, Area51): Rhyan, USS Redemption. Rhyan is part of the reason the Redemption is doing so well. He is a great writer and heavily involved in all aspects of the sim.
Writer of the Quarter(Second Quarter, Area51): Mark, who plays Cassandra Blackburn on the USS Redemption. Cassandra is conflicted, angry, burned out, and intense. The posts are engrossing and well-written. She creates a very complex character and is involved in many aspects of the story, involving other characters in her personal and sim drama.

And post of the month (June/Area51) goes to Lieutenant Commander Geraldine "Geri" Severide & Lieutenant Commander Magdalena "Maggie" Doyl for there post: Meeting Intel http://ussredemption.com/index.php/sim/viewpost/40

For a full list of all awards given out in Theta Fleet for June please go to this website: http://thetafleet.com/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=363

On a more personal note, I'm proud and humbled to write with such talented people. Keep up the good work and lets see where this mission takes us!

» Welcome to the new crew and awards again!

Posted on 26 Jun 2016 @ 4:54pm by Captain Azura Ashcart in General News

First I would like to start off by welcoming another member to the crew. Amy, who will be playing Lt. Mikail Kolmak our new Assistant Chief Medical Officer! So let's all welcome Amy to the ship. Congrats Afton you have a minion.

Now on to the awards, we as a ship have won the Bronze Unit of Distinction award for May. Good work all, I'm proud of you. This just goes to show that we have an unusually talented group of writers playing on this ship. Major Cassandra Blackburn had again been singled out for special recognition for her exceptional quality posts over the month. Her post: “New Confrontations", has earned her writer of the month for Theta Fleets Area 51 division.

I'm proud of you all and look forward to seeing where you treasure the ship from here on out!

I have been meaning to do a weekly "state of the sim" news item but have failed miserably at getting to it. So this will be the first with the others coming out around Saturday or Sunday in following weeks.

First I would like to welcome or new comers to the ship, in order of apperance and sorry for the late introductions.

We have Jim who joined us and is playing Lieutenant Commander Alexei Joran our Chief Tinkerer (Engineer).

Next we have Nick who is playing Lieutenant Commander Geraldine "Geri" Severide our Chief Spook (Int).

Lastly we have Charlene who is playing Lieutenant Commander Magdalena "Maggie" Doyl our Chief Popo (Sec/Tac)

Now on to more good news the Redemption entered the fleet strongly and in our first month we recieved the Silver Unit of Distinction award for our division of Area 51. As well two of our number were selected for other awards, Commander Rhyan for Area 51 Player of the Month award as well as his roll in the Area 51 post of the month which he shares with Major Blackburn! To view the fleet awards for April in full follow the link: http://thetafleet.net/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=357

Finally, we have been having some issues with the webhosting lately which has spurred me to look for a new host. I have spoken to some hosts and will be working to migrate the site to the new host within the next few days. So bare with me and hopefully we shouldn't have any more issues out of the site for a while.

So in conclusion, welcome to our three new victems, congratulations to us, and the issues will get ironed out. Keep playing and enjoy yourselves.
