Quadra Sigma III: A Dire Situation

We have arrived at the Quadra Sigma III mining colony.

Commander Riker's initial away team reported finding only four survivors. The entrance to the underground colony has collapsed, and the cavern that housed the colony structures has filled up with deadly gas. Engineering teams are working on finding a way into the caverns, and medical triage locations are on standby. We hope there are more survivors, but the evidence doesn't look promising.

The four survivors that made it out of the tunnels before the collapse are being treated aboard the Enterprise.

I'll post more as soon as I hear anything.

Hide And Q

Bad news. The entity that calls himself "Q" has returned. He has made another visit to the Enterprise, and seems intent upon getting in the way of our emergency response to the Quadra Sigma III mining colony. According to the bridge crew, he has challenged them to "games to the death". And, he has, apparently, even given "the power of the Q" to Commander Riker. I don't know what that entails, but it doesn't sound good.

Now is not a good time for Q's games. The lives of 504 Federation citizens hang in the balance. They need to be our priority.

Distress Call From Quadra Sigma III

The Enterprise has left Starbase G-6. Unfortunately, fifteen minutes after departure, we received an emergency distress call from the underground Federation mining colony on Quadra Sigma III. They have reported a massive explosion that caused a deadly methane-like gas to seep out of the mine. The colonists are reporting rapid gas poisoning, and have issued a plea for immediate medical assistance.

The Enterprise has been diverted from our course to Aldebaran III, and we are enroute to respond. Our ETA to the Sigma III system is about three and a half hours. We hope the colonists can hold out that long.

According to Federation records, there are 504 colonists living at the Quadra Sigma III mining colony. This includes women and children.

Docked At Starbase G-6

The Enterprise has arrived at Starbase G-6, where we will be docked for the next 12-24 hours. Lieutenant Commander Deanna Troi will be departing the Enterprise in a shuttlecraft for a visit home to Betazed. Meanwhile, sometime tomorrow, the Enterprise will resume its journey to Aldebaran III, so that members of the spacial sciences department can attend a conference there in the next few days.

New Personal Facebook Pages

The three of us -- Tessa Kensingon, Cassie Queen, and myself, Sam Archer -- now have our own personal Facebook pages.

While the missions, adventures and PR content will continue to be posted from the main USS Enterprise-D page, now you'll be able to get to know the three of us on a more personal level as well -- on our new personal pages. We will each be posting photos, comments, and personal perspectives from our lives aboard the USS Enterprise. You'll even learn a few things about our past histories as well.

If we are going to be your representatives of the missions and adventures of the USS Enterprise-D, we think it will be helpful (and entertaining) to get to know us as friends too.

So take a moment to visit, and like, our personal pages listed below. They are already linked from the Enterprise-D Facebook page. Let's explore space together!

Enterprise: Boldly Going

"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship, Enterprise, its continuing mission to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldy go where no one has gone before."

This has been the mission for all six Starfleet vessels to bear the name, Enterprise. For 212 years, our namesake has been boldly going. And now, we have the honor of continuing that mission, here, aboard the USS Enterprise-D.

I wake up every morning, thinking.... THIS is the dream. THIS is something special. I can't wait to see what's out there!

Here's to the "D". May her service be long, and prestigious. May she represent the Federation as well as the five Enterprises before her have done. May she live long, and prosper!

Bound For Aldebaran

The USS Enterprise is currently traveling at warp to Federation world, Aldebaran III, so that so that members of the spacial sciences department can attend a conference there at the end of the month. We'll be at warp for another 25-26 days.

A distance of 90 light years makes for a long trip.

Ensign Aszalla: Science Officer

It is with some sadness that we say goodbye to Ensign Aszalla. Her request to be reassigned to the Enterprise Science department has been approved by Commander Riker. Aszalla has longed to work with the aquatic creatures on the lower decks for some time now, and has finally been given that opportunity. She will remain aboard the Enterprise as a science officer, but will end her service with us here in the PR Office.

Good luck, Ensign. We're all excited for you, and thrilled that you are finally able to follow your passions, and do what you love most !
