USS Endeavour: A Handful of Dust

As the Century Storm ravages the Paulson Nebula, Endeavour is sent to rescue the lost USS Odysseus, whose complement includes several individuals dear to the crew...

Twenty years ago, Cadets Karana Valance and Cassia Aquila met at the Academy and formed a bond of lifelong friendship. One year ago, the USS Endeavour pursued and destroyed the Wild Hunt pirate group, aided by Commander Aquila’s USS Odysseus.

At last, the stars streamed past the windows of Round Table as Endeavour moved gently at warp through the depths of the Paulson Nebula towards Starbase Bravo. Weeks of starships braving the dangers of the rifts to close them made the region more placid now, their warp field stable and their [...]

Kharth tried to not look like she’d been waiting outside of Sickbay when she ambushed Carraway on his way out. ‘I know you can’t tell me anything sensitive,’ was what passed for a greeting, ‘but is Templeton alright?’ Slightly startled, it took a moment before Carraway summoned his [...]

USS Endeavour: A Handful of Dust

The main ballroom of the Seashine Hotel had little to recommend it compared to the grand halls of Betazed, but Thawn had to admit it was impressive for a distant land of leisure such as Whixby. More impressive, perhaps, was the diligence the Lillarties had applied to making it fit for a party [...]
