USS Endeavour: Valley of Dying Stars

A new assignment. New leadership. Endeavour squadron must contend with more than internal politics, but the question of their true purpose, their true duty: to hunt enemies in the shadows, or light a beacon in the darkness?

Mission Description

The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

– ‘The Hollow Men,’ T.S. Eliot

A month after Endeavour was assigned to the squadron under Fleet Captain Jericho’s command, much has changed. Their duties have turned far more to shoring up Federation borders than reaching beyond them, and however much Jericho pushes, Captain Rourke seems only to fold and take it. How far will the crew bend before they break?

With Cortez gone, even with Valance gone, Kharth had nobody to complain to she trusted to listen or sit still long enough, so she ambushed Airex at breakfast in the Safe House, pulling up the chair opposite his with a curt, ‘I’m joining you.’ He looked up from stirring his tea and blinked. [...]

One of Shepherd’s first acts aboard as XO had been, in Kharth’s opinion, a gross overreach. ‘I’m asking to ride shotgun on some shifts and training, Commander,’ Shep had said in bemusement at the resistance. ‘Not take over the department.’ ‘What this department doesn’t need, [...]

The roaring descent of the shuttle Lancelot tore the clear blue sky in two with heat and flames and metal. ‘We’re coming in way too hot.’ Kharth’s grasp on the control panel turned white-knuckled as she watched the readings spill on the shuttle’s sensors. ‘We’re supposed to come in [...]
