Welcome to the USS Leyte Gulf!
"Arrayed For Victory"
Welcome to the USS Leyte Gulf, a starship belonging to Task Force 99 in Bravo Fleet. The Leyte Gulf is part of the 'Beyond The Stars' Task Group. BtS allows simmers to play in any aspect of the Star Trek franchise.
The Leyte Gulf is set in the year 2266. Right at the beginning of Kirk's famous five-year mission. Border skirmishes with the Klingons are a common occurance, the Romulans are boogeymen that haven't been seen in almost 100 years, and the galaxy is ripe for exploration.
So if you want to be truly ORIGINAL join the Leyte Gulf today!
The Leyte Gulf is a 16+ Simm. If you are under 16, please do not apply.

I'm sure you've all noticed that there have been some changes made to the roster, including a couple promotions. Lt. Vanah has been moved to Lt. Commander for taking on the role of First Officer and for her constant excellent efforts for the betterment of this simm, even when I'm not able to do as much as I'd like. Also Lt. Henderson our "trusty" Chief of Security has been elevated to the position of Second Officer. Please make a point to congratulate them on these achievements.
I'd love to add the rest of you to the roster for promotions and awards and all of that! So, please, let's all get going again and make this the best ship in Bravo Fleet (we already are, I just want the rest of them to know ;) )
You're all amazing!

Okay, I'm still waiting for my computer to come back to me from repairs, but I'm ready to start the new mission in force starting on Monday of next week. If everyone will please write a little synopsis type post of their shore leave activities I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm going to have to do some clever maneuvering to be able to post the way I want until my computer comes back, but I intend to do whatever I can, so please bear with me.
You're an awesome crew and great people, I'm proud to know you!

This is my first news item, so I hope I'm not misusing them (if so, tell me promptly, so it won't happen again).
Anyway, in these idling days, there surely are folks like me that want to write something.
It doesn't exactly matter what (nor who, would say some whovian), but someone just wants to write.
If I understood correctly from our good Pal Vanah, we currently are above the planet where the Terresins want to establish.
So, if anyone wants, and someone of the high brass will give us a GO signal, it would be nice to write something about the planet, the establishment of the Terresins, and so on.
If it is a NO GO, then provide alternatives please! :D

I'm sorry I wrapped up the mission so abruptly and without anyone else's input, but given the RL circumstances of our crew, I didn't want to leave everyone hanging or drag it out any longer. I apologize to everyone who I might have skipped over to finish the story, and I don't mean to hurt any feelings.
Until Drea and I return, if you want to write here, consider the ship on shore leave. I leave Frosty in charge for the time being, but I'll be back shortly. He can decide where the ship goes. When everyone's back, we'll have a little shore leave R&R and then jump right into the next mission featuring a TOS guest star: Mister Harcourt Fenton Mudd!
I will be back. Talk to you next time.

All right, as you all know by now my computer has been malfunctioning so my access to a computer has been pretty limited, almost non-existent. I'm using a laptop that belongs to a relative, but it's not working well with NOVA sadly. My computer is being repaired and I will hopefully be up to speed shortly. We're going to make it through this and take off on newer and better things very soon. Please, bear with us and I promise to make it all worth your collective while.
your proud Captain

Marcia sighed and shook her head as she walked onto the main promenade at Spacedock, recent events had not been good for her mental wellbeing. She'd tried to talk to Gaiman about dropping his charges against Tommy but Gaiman, being Gaiman, wasn't hearing it. Now, in addition to having to…

Flushed with anxiety, Frosty paced about his quarters, "Dee! We've worked so hard to keep our lit'le secret! You know what'll 'appen to me if fleet finds out about you!"
A very sympathetic Deidre approached, resting her palms on his arm and shoulder. "I do, Hendy. But we have…

Danielle was in her quarters, lying on her bed, staring at the ceiling over her. She was thinking. A lot. How did the Lieutenant know that Vanah was a Fake? And... Why did he trust me? she asked to herself, shaking her head, thoughtfully.
She wasn't wearing her uniform,…

After having been imprisoned temporarily inside the computer banks of the probe which Vanah knew as the Terresin Planet Ship, Lieutenant Vanah had finally returned to the "real" world, and in so doing further exposed her malicious imposter, the Terresin known as Zora. Vanah uncomfortably sat in the command chair,…
Posted on Mon Jan 20th, 2014 @ 9:16am by Lieutenant Commander Vanah & Zora & Lieutenant Frosty Henderson & Ensign Danielle Donovan
Zora had had enough of this ridiculous distraction and stormed out of the comm array, headed back to the Bridge. It had to resume command of the ship before someone countermanded its orders.
Danielle, in the other hand, knew that something was up. That... Vanah was an imposter, of course,…

If it wasn't bad enough that I would be assigned to the same ship as that woman, now I find out that I'm to become CMO with Dr. Hertz departing. As Assistant Chief I was at least able to avoid her, but now, as a department head, I'll have to…

Members of the First Panel:
As you are well aware, 4 terms ago, our planet ship lost the functionality of its maneuvering thrusters, rendering us helplessly adrift at a velocity of 60% light speed. I wish I could allay your fears that we are perfectly safe and will be able…

Today's the day, I just woke up from a six hour nap after spending the first hours of this trip trying fruitlessly to get the pointy eared pilot to converse in any sort of meaningful way. Should have known better, every Vulcan I've ever met has been quiet, not sure…

The Captain is on Kellos II right now. He beamed down with Lt. Vanah, Chief Henriksen, and Detective Gomez to speak to the new Ambassador, Kelsik, about the disappearance of former Ambassador Elias Paulson. To say that I'm not expecting good things from this is saying the least, Mr. Kelsik…
