“Sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The USS Mariner is fresh from the docks and completed its shakedown cruise with flying colors. But the senior crew is of old, weighted by the last operation in the Delta Quadrant that demanded so much from them. They are sent back to the Delta Quadrant to continue their exploration, find new species, and make their way through the spiderweb of politics. The seasoned command crew has to face the aftermath of the Blood Dilithium and the aggressive expansion of the Devore Imperium.

Mariner might be designated for science, but exploring the wild west of Delta Quadrant will put a lot of pressure on it. What stellar mysteries lay before them? What new worlds will they discover? And what new challenges will they face? The crew’s primary operations are missions of stellar and astronomical events, creations, or the unknown. Exploring new stars and nebulas, documenting unknown fauna and bestiary from newly discovered worlds.

USS Mariner: M3: Let Loose the Beast of War

The observation lab was a mess and the least damaged across the ship. That was a win by itself. However, the power the lab was receiving, and the sensor data were minimal as it was diverted to sickbay and engineering, which needed more. Yet this room would be vital to navigating and recording [...]

Clicking the wristlocks to close, Adrián looked at the status of his EVA suit and nodded to himself. His attention diverted to his side, seeing Adham, a relatively young scientist officer who K'Nala asked to help out with the engineering team in repairs. Yet he didn't seem very motivated to go [...]
