These Are The Voyages Of Voyager 1

Space, the final frontier.

These are the words that have opened up most of the episodes of the various Star Trek incarnations as well as the movies. These words have meaning not only within the Star Trek Universe itself, but also within our own reality.

Say ‘hello’ to Voyager 1. Actually, you might want to say ‘goodbye’ instead. Why do you ask? Because according to NASA, the satellite Voyager 1 – a spacecraft that was sent out into the wild unknown on September 5, 1977 – has passed the heliosphere.

What is the heliosphere you ask? The heliosphere is considered the edge of our solar system, where solar winds still have influence. It marks the boundary of where our solar system begins – or ends in this case. In other words, Voyager is no longer within our home solar system, and has become the first manmade object to go beyond the bounds of our tiny corner of space.

So what does this mean for man-kind? Only time will tell.

About Alora DeVeau

Amanda, the writer behind Alora DeVeau is a 43 year old woman who has been a fan of Star Trek for as far back as she can remember. She began her foray into roleplaying with White Wolf table top games back in 1996, and her experience with PBEMs began in 1999 with a Dragonriders of Pern game. She has written and roleplayed in a variety of scenarios including original fantasy games, Dungeons and Dragons, and Amber Diceless. She found SB118 back in 2013 while looking for a Star Trek PBEM that could withstand the test of time. It's complex world-building structure and longevity encouraged her to take the plunge, and she only wishes she could have found the group sooner. She is a happily married homeschooling mom to four children, and also a servant to three cats.
