The USS Veracruz' official launch mission, as the crew continues their search for Skellos and the Orion's Sword group.
Location: Cascadia Shipyard; preparing for launch
Alert Status: Green
"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to our new home. Let us bring as much pride to Veracruz as we have to Tranquility. Prepare stations for departure please."
With that simple sentence, the former crew of SS Tranquility prepares for their new life aboard USS Veracruz. You can still sense that "new ship" smell and you can cut the excitement with a knife.
However, our continuing issues with the Orions Sword group forces us to get right to work and bypass the simple shakedown cruise. I have faith in my crew that they will adapt to shipboard life quickly and maintain the same level of expertise we had on Tranquility.
Lt Cmdr Kevin Wallace has been placed on board, as have a select few others of the people we captured at both Tranquility and the station they had on the edge of Voxxian space. We are heading there now to try and learn more about where both Skellos and the USS Proto could be.
Hopefully if we run into the Voxxians, they will understand our need and be willing to work with us, even if unofficially.
