Welcome to the USS Odyssey!

"Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." - Helen Keller

After the destruction of the Hobus star, the Romulan Empire had to rethink their entire structure of life. With their fleet now being used to hold the peace within the Empire, their exploration area of operation was left empty and unprotected. In a decisive move, Starfleet began to amass a large presence in the area to stake its claim. On August 31st, 2388, the USS Odyssey will be christened and launched on a mission of exploration, diplomacy and peace within the region. But things never seem to go as planned...

The USS Odyssey is a proud member of Bravo Fleet's Task Force 93 and a proud member of the Split World Alliance.

Good afternoon all,

I'm not sure if all of you know this, but I have been adding information to the Oddie's website under the "Database" tab. Along the left hand side (if you're using the default skin for our website), you'll see a list of topics that have information within. Things like our ship specifications and a tour page that has images for certain key places aboard the ship. Along with these default pages, I have added a few pages for our Area of Operations and the Alien races that we will be meeting on our journey together. The AoO has a comprehensive map that I will be periodically updating with things that we encounter, and the alien one is a bit obvious.

I will be adding two new sections here soon. One for Medical and one for Technology. These will be categories for us to add information to. One of the Medical pages will be the Betazoidal disease that Axon is living with. For the Technology page, I would like for us to have information for the Marine-specific runabout, the Engineering-specific shuttle and the Argonaut Jovian submarine.

Now, here's the deal. I don't want to be the only one who helps with the database on this sim. You guys are writing this story just as much as I am. So if you have some information that you think is relevant to anything in the database, let me know. We can talk about it and if I agree, we'll add it in. This includes the alien races or any other things that I have written. This sim is growing and I want the information we have to grow with it.

Good evening all,

I would like to inform you of a project I would like to try out on the Odyssey.

As most of you know, the main head of writing and executing a mission is the CO. As CO, it is my job to come up with a story that gives you, the crew, enough information to play the game, but give you enough room to add your own parts to the mix. This is an important equation I try to use on the Odyssey, as I want everyone aboard to have the ability to expand the story in ways that I couldn't do myself.

Along that note, I want to try something a bit different. I want to introduce something that I'm calling Character Missions. These missions will still fall into the main Odyssey mission and involve the entire crew, but they will have a plot that directly revolves around your character. You and I will work together on the plot and timeline for this mission and how you want it to begin and end. We can develop the details together to give the crew a fun and exciting experience that can open up parts of your character that may otherwise stay in the dark.

A few examples could be a mission involving Mirok's heritage coming back to bite him in the butt or a mission about Calida's unique form suddenly posing a risk to the crew. I want the missions to be fun for everyone while at the same time giving each of you a chance to feature your character in a way that we've not seen before.

Now, do not feel obligated to present a mission idea. I would never force anyone to do that. But I want you all to have the ability and opportunity to be involved if you so choose. I cannot promise when we will run the mission, as I have mission arcs in my head that I need to make sure we follow, but we will get to them.

So if you're up to the challenge, start thinking of ideas. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk about the idea or if you need some help coming up with ideas. I'm here for you. And when you're ready, email me the proposal and we'll set up some one-on-one time to really nail it down. I will also open a GoogleDoc for each mission idea presented where we can house the important details and timeline for us to reference.

I'm very excited for this project and I hope y'all are too. It's important to me that the Odyssey not be my story, but to be our story. Let's write it together and let's have some fun.

Good evening all,

Today, we celebrate the launch of the USS Odyssey.

In the Odyssey's previous life, we had a very specific mission that lacked creativity and limited character options. But today is the start of something new. The Odyssey's mission has no defined path or set agenda. We are a crew that has set out to do one of Starfleet's most fundamental goals: to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.

While I do have missions in mind to help set the stage, I will be leaving most of the major details to you, our crew, to help define. Your ideas will be welcomed and your thoughts will always be considered.

Help make this sim an enjoyable story as we race into the unknown.

So say we all.

Eddie followed the captain into the ready room after the briefing. "Sir? What did you want to see me about?"

Keth was excited.

Well, he was always excited, it was his default state. Like how a human being was considered alive when breathing: a huanni was considered alive by their barely contained excitement. This led to the usual number of fidgeting episodes, nervous glances, one backflip off of a wall…

Axon stood along the side of the room, his back turned towards his staff as his eyes gazed at the stars as they streaked past. The ship was now going at warp towards its next destination, but there was other business to handle at the moment.
