Mission Description

As part of her new 5-year, deep space mission, USS Venture has been assigned to explore a new sector, which is filled with unusual numbers of ion storms. After weeks of cataloging supernovae, quasars, and uninhabited systems, the Venture picks up a strange metallic object on sensors and realizes it must be an alien ship. It’s spinning slowly, moving slower than light, and emitting strange radiation that is similar to the types of ion storms that plague this sector. However, it does seem to contain indistinct life signs. The crew soon discovers the ship contains a massive forest, inhabited by strange alien lifeforms. The Venture will have to deal with ghostly lights, dangerous plants, and something moving in the shadows stalking them through the terrifying terrain, in order to solve the mystery.

Added to their problems, the Venture isn’t the only ship interested in what is going on. Thot Kert, commanding the Breen warship Nistaan Bur, watches from the shadows to assess the situation for their own unknown means.

Reflections and Reactions

USS Venture: Forests of the Night

Vaelana had never served on a science or exploratory vessel before…in fact, for most of her previous career in the Galae Command’s Imperial Star Navy, she had actively avoided those posts as much as possible. In the old Romulan Star Empire such billets tended to be some of the most closely [...]

Cutting Down On Exercize Time

USS Venture: Forests of the Night

Sparks flew as blade struck blade, providing brief flashes of illumination to the darkened hallway. The clanging sound echoed off of the long bulkhead walls, followed quickly by the aggregated shouts of war cries and sharp exhalations of breath set to the rhythm of the blows. The figures in [...]

Where No One Has Gone Before

USS Venture: Forests of the Night

“Captain’s Log, stardate 76485.9 — we’ve been searching this sector of space for a while now and about three days ago astrometrics reported a new supernova, only about twenty years old, on long-range sensors. I’ve ordered us into a distant orbit around the neutron star it [...]
