USS ATHENA — The newly-launched Odyssey class starship USS Athena is preparing for her first mission in the Gamma Quadrant.
The crew of the USS Doyle-A wrapped up their shore leave on DS285 and were handed keys to a brand new ship, the USS Athena. Everyone spent what little time remained prepping their new home for launch as the Captain took care of some much needed command modifications. Very little information was given to the command staff and only a handful of people know the specifics. However, what is public knowledge at this point is that the mission will entail a voyage to the Rytas Sector of the Gamma Quadrant.
So far, the Athena’s crew had much to say regarding the transfer and new mission.
“If experience has taught me anything, it’s that the universe delights in throwing all the rules away at the most unexpected times,” remarked Cmdr. Tal Tel-ar.
Others were still getting acquainted with the ship and its many facilities and provisions.
“I didn’t know the pool was there,” said Lt. John Nugra.
Talia Kaji was offered the position of Chief Science Officer, which she accepted with grace. Now she has to make sure her department is in tip top shape by the time the mission begins. Sabrina Holly was promoted back to Executive Officer to fill the void left by her predecessors to help the Captain run such a massive ship. Danara was promoted to Chief of Security to deal with the increased number of people aboard. Last but not least, Hakashri was transferred from Engineering back to HCO.
