Welcome to the USS Alabama!
The Alabama was named after the 22nd state to join the United States and is the 8th ship to carry the name since 1819.
The Nebula Class ship is a multi-functional ship thanks to the mission specific Pod that can be changed out whenever needed. We can do anything from colonization and troop transport to a mobile hospital support ship to Deep Space Exploration.
The Alabama is a freshly commissioned ship that has been assigned to Task Force 37 in the Delta Quadrant. We are looking at expanding upon what the USS Voyager was able to gather on their way back to the Alpha Quadrant 16 years ago.

We're on our way back to Iota Command to get our new orders. Please take part in the group JP to get us back to the station.
Once this JP is out of the way, I encourage everyone to do at least one shameless character development post. If anyone wants to a JP with the CO, feel free to make a start and send me a tag.

Good Day, Folks.
We've had a couple of changes this week.
We were down a player earlier in the week, but gained another today.
Please help me in welcoming LT(jg) James Wesley, our new Chief Intelligence Officer.
I just confirmed that we have been upgraded to Operational/Active on the PF site today as well.
This is thanks to all of you and I would like to thank you all for being here and being as active as you have been over the last 6 weeks.

The Alabama was halfway back to Iota Command when Andreas decided to call a quick meeting.
"Commander O'Shaunessy to all senior staff, please report to the observation lounge for an update on our current status." Andreas said as he crossed the bridge to the observation lounge.

After a good night's sleep, Andreas headed to the bridge to start his duty shift. He was happy with how the ship was faring so far on her shakedown cruise. There were a number of little things that popped up along the way, but the crew handled most of them…
Andreas had retreated to his ready room to catch his breath for a few minutes. While still reasonably uneventful, he was worrying about what might come on the Alabama's shakedown cruise. He knew the crew was more than up for anything that came their way, but he was still new…
The Alabama was well underway and everything seemed to be running smoothly from the reports Andreas had been receiving. It was nearing the end of the main duty shift and he was feeling a bit antsy. Getting up from the centre chair and looking around, he nodded towards the duty…

Judah sat down at his desk in his quarters, with a cup of old-fashioned sweet tea, and began reviewing the personnel qualifications, after about an hour he had a list of things to begin training.
Though Starfleet required yearly qualifications with crew serve weapons Judah always felt more comfortable when…

Looking up at the ceiling in reflection, Andreas opened a personal log.
"I have to say the crew worked incredibly well together on our shakedown cruise. It was reasonably uneventful, but the crew handled everything that came our way with efficiency and gelled better than any Commander could hope for.…

Judah stood on the Observation Deck of Iota, staring at the stars. An unbidden tear fell slowly as he once again thought of his father, he would have been proud to know Judah was being assigned to the Alabama, the namesake of the family's home state.
His father had been…

Beck, Wyatt, Lieutenant Junior Grade
Chief Security/Tactical Officer, USS Alabama.
Well, we're here. The USS Alabama. She's a lot bigger than our previous posting. The Sagan was an old Constellation class explorer, aging but reliable. Sometimes I miss the old girl, but she's gone for the scrap yard…

"I can't believe I'm on my way to my own command." Andreas started with feelings of both anticipation and trepidation.
"My career in the security and tactical departments have taught me a lot about defense, but a gold uniform rarely gets you into the center chair.
"I owe a lot…
