USS Odyssey: To Hold Fire

A return home causes more issues for the Odyssey's crew as they deal with the repercussions from their last mission in the Delta Quadrant.

Mission Description

Ordered to take extended R&R, the crew of the USS Odyssey cannot do anything while their ship receives vital repairs and much needed overhaul. This respite follows on from the aftermath of what happened against the Quirennal and the crew’s valiant fight to escape the clutches of the situation they were thrown into deal with for over two months. Relationships are strained, people have changed and the crew now face their toughest challenge ever…one another. This is not the same crew any longer.

Captain McCallister must not only deal with the impact his last mission has had on his crew but also with his family. His marriage is on the rocks and his three sons aren’t quite the same young men he left behind. However McCallister is not the only one dealing with qualms on the homefront, many of his crew are struggling with returning to their old lives in Starfleet. Some had come to accustomed to their lives on the alien ark and readjusting back to their Starfleet lives is having ripples. Even Commander Duncan, Odyssey’s trustworthy and capable executive officer, finds himself having to juggle his career against the sudden thrust of fatherhood upon him while also deciding where he sees his relationship with Senior Chief Court going.

Returning home to Starbase Bravo was meant to bring them the peace they certainly needed before Starfleet sent them out again, but is the crew of the Odyssey truly able to return back to the way things were before? Do they have time to rebuild, repair and recover?
