Welcome to the USS Horizon!

The Final Frontier. Quite possibly one of the most dangerous places in the universe. Spatial anomalies, wormholes, temporal nonsense, and political conflicts all make it one of these dangerous places.

But with risk comes reward. Exploration of deep space, strange new worlds, and new life is one of the biggest rewards for many. Not to mention, it was one of Starfleet’s main directives. At least it used to be. The past two and a half decades have been filled with strife and loss and Starfleet has lost focus on exploration more and more. Even with projects like Project Full Circle and a few other directives to explore other distant places, less ships and crews are being tasked with exploration.

However with the creation of new classes of explorers in the late 2380s and early 2390s, and more ships being assigned exploration duties, Starfleet has begun to turn back to the organization’s roots, slowly, but surely. The Horizon is one of those ships with a primary focus in exploring deep space and uncharted space. With her abilities, speed, and unique crew, the Horizon can take on the galaxy -no- the universe.

The USS Horizon is a Century Class Explorer operating in the year 2397 in Theta Fleet's Area 51 Task Force.

Space...

A vast and empty frontier...

"Energize," Oscar said.

The Andorian transporter officer faded as the figures of both Commander Vladinchi and Lieutenant Ziro were engulfed in a blue shimmering light. When it dissipated and reality reappeared, Oscar was not prepared for what he saw. Both the Commander and Lieutenant had been outfitted with standard…

*SNIP*

Not for the first time Devin wished she liked the taste of coffee, because she felt as if she could use a liter of the stuff. She and the staff had been working long hours to insure every transporter was ready, and they had drilled…

The galaxy had been growing considerably smaller as the 24th century marched steadily toward its conclusion. Once, only a few secretive species were known to have cracked transwarp travel. But once the Federation gets ahold of something, it isn't long before the wealth…

Being the first to arrive, T'Raen had to wonder if she was expected to adhere to such strict appointment times, or if she was just early out of a combination of habit and succinct management of her department. As she looked at the large table surrounded by chairs, while…

Montgomery. The name conjured up images of the famed field marshal, of the equally famous engineer. It implied adventure and danger and romantic thoughts of action in the depths of space flitted through the mind of the newly minted ensign. True, she was an older ship, but as the Excelsior…

Admiral Katheryn Janeway was seated on the edge of her desk when Devin was marched into her office. The woman’s face was unreadable. Devin glanced about the office.

“No dog?” she noted.

Janeway was silent.

“You redecorated.”

More silence.

“Are you waiting for the guards to leave…
