November for the USS Discovery

Share this:

In the midst of the memorial service for the lost ship and crew, a battle-scarred Discovery and NX-class Columbia drop out of warp at DS-285, astonishing the gathered crowd of family and friends. The solemn ceremony turns into one of celebration as both the living and the deceased are honored. The crew look forward to shore leave and to spend time with their families, but unfortunately there will be no rest for them. Admiral Samuelson has reassigned the senior staff of the Discovery to the USS Odyssey, a massive futuristic prototype, to hunt down the USS Constitution which has been stolen by none other than Fleet Captain Hebron and Captain Nekkar, the former COs of Captain Waltas! To complicate matters, the Constitution was in the deadly Galaxy Dreadnought configuration when she was stolen, effectively making her a highly formidable warship. The crew ponder the reason behind the high-profile theft as they clandestinely board the Odyssey to begin their most harrowing mission yet!
