Good Morning Recruit,

Welcome to the 2382 Graduating Class of Starfleet Academy.

By this point in time, we would normally be celebrating your academic honors and achievements, the culmination of your time here at Starfleet. But this year is different. This year, we opened our ceremonies with a moment of silence -- a moment of remembrance -- for those of your fellow cadets whose lives were lost last year in the service of Starfleet, protecting the Federation from the Borg.

Some of you lost family in the attacks.

Many of you lost friends.

Sixty-three billion people are dead.

Over a dozen worlds are lifeless and barren.

The Borg may be gone, but old enemies of the Federation have allied themselves against us.

This is the galaxy you are inheriting from us today. This is the new reality with which we are faced. But it is at a time such as this, that the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet renew our dedication to the peaceful exploration.

The last few years we have seen nothing but conflict. Wolf 359. The Maquis. The Dominion War. The Borg Attack on Sector 001, the Borg Invasion. Many of you joined Starfleet at a time of war, determined to fight for the peaceful and noble ideas for which the Federation and Starfleet have stood for over a century. To follow in the footsteps of the great explorers that came before us. Jonathan Archer. Philippa Georgiou. Christopher Pike. James Kirk. To do that, we have to look no further than Starfleet Academy's motto. The principle on which this institution was founded.

Ex Astra, Scientia?

From Stars, Knowledge.

I therefore challenge all of you today, to live up to the guiding principles of this institution, and remember these words...

Space, the final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the Starship Enterprise. It's continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before...

Character Creation/RTJ
Welcome to Star Trek Odyssey, a new RPoL game using the Star Trek Adventures RPG system developed by Modiphius. First and foremost, I feel it should be mentioned that while this RPG system will be used to resolve complex scenes and to add dramatic tension to events, it will NOT be used when it gets in the way of good storytelling. If rolling dice it not your thing, then this game may not be for you.

All that said, character creation in this game involves two parts. A character profile, detailing who your character is, the life they have lived and the career that they have had up to this point, and a character sheet. The character profile is provided below, the character sheet can be found here. The profile must be provided to be considered for entry into the game. The character sheet must be provided once your character is approved.

If you have any questions on this progress, please message the GM Staff about it.

Family History:
Luther Housan's family has always lived on Earth, tracing their first ancestors back to survivors from World War 3 living in the United Kingdom (many pre-World War 3 records were lost or intentionally purged by various warring factions, and thus a true accounting of the Housan family legacy dating back further cannot be determined). While Zephram Cochrane built his warp ship in Montana, half-way across the globe, people in Europe and the United Kingdom were struggling to survive as well. While few documents remain that detail any significant impact that Luther's family may have had on historical events of the time, nonetheless, records show that Luther's great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was alive during this period.

The first recorded Housan in Starfleet records is Isaac Housan, Luther's great-great-grandfather, who served as a MACO during the Earth-Romulan War aboard the Excalibur, NX-03. Isaac Housan participated in the Battle of Sol, where the Excalibur, Endeavour, and a fleet of three other recently completed NX starships led by the Intrepid, attacked and destroyed several Romulan Birds of Prey.

Later, Luther's great-grandfather, Josiah Housan, served aboard the USS Latimer, NX-328, during its exploration of the...
