USS Endeavour: Promises to Keep

Endeavour closes on the Wild Hunt's base of operations for the final confrontation

Mission Description

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

– ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,’ Robert Frost

 

Previously:

The USS Endeavour has pursued the Wild Hunt since the pirate gang ambushed them, killing crewmembers and incapacitating their captain. Temporary CO Commander Rourke has been assigned to finish the job – but he has his own tense relationship with the Wild Hunt, as one of their leaders claims to be the presumed-dead Erik Halvard, a Starfleet officer who once served under Rourke. While Endeavour has gotten the better of the group in subsequent encounters, the chase has become increasingly personal. Many crew have lost good friends, with Lieutenant Thawn particularly grief-stricken and furious in turn at the death of former Helmsman Noah Pierce. Others have seen the Wild Hunt’s cruelty up close since, with Lieutenant Kharth hearing the story of a mother on the agricultural world of Lockstowe, who stood up to a Wild Hunt raid only for her children to be taken hostage for unknown purposes. While the recent encounter with a stellar phenomenon giving crewmembers flashes of alternate pasts and presents of their lives has brought them closer, there is no explanation for the anomaly’s presence so close to the Wild Hunt’s holding.

And heading to a rendezvous with other Starfleet ships, there is little time for reflection as the final confrontation looms.

Catching Up

USS Endeavour: Promises to Keep

The door-chime sounded a mere ten minutes after Valance had got back to her quarters after a long shift. With too many hours under her belt supervising Endeavour’s repairs, anything interrupting her serious plans of a hot meal and a comfortable bed was not promised a warm welcome. Her, ‘Come [...]

What Comes Next

USS Endeavour: Promises to Keep

Rourke wasn’t thrilled their debriefing with Rear Admiral Beckett was held in Hargreaves’s ready room on the Caliburn, but it was the most spacious and kept them out from underfoot on Starbase 157. Moving through the Caliburn had been to see a ship being stripped apart from aft to stern, [...]

Such a Breach in Space-Time

USS Endeavour: Promises to Keep

‘Everyone aboard, Commander,’ came Thawn’s crisp, clear voice – and then it caught. ‘Cancel that. We lost Commander Rourke’s signal, he’s still on the station.’ Valance sat up in the command chair, throat tight. ‘Then get him out, Lieutenant.’ ‘Quantum field is now [...]
