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.

Good Day Everyone,
I've been a little lax regarding Awards, for that I apologize. I've restarted giving them out and plan to do so every month moving forward.
Please help me in congratulating Lieutenant Skie-Cloud for receiving the Post Master Award and Lieutenant Taggart for receiving the Captain's Merit Award for their contributions to the Alabama during the month of January.

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.
Richard, AKA Andreas.

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.

Andreas had spent most of his time since back at Iota in meetings with various personnel getting things lined up for their next meeting. Now that they were done, he thought it would be prudent to meet with his Chief Flight Control Officer for a refresher in piloting shuttles.

Looking up at the ceiling in reflection, Andreas opened a personal log.
