 Be afraid. Be very afraid!

 Part 4 of the Azimuth Horizon crusade has kicked off in the Lotus Fleet fleet action role play, found here: http://evshell.afraid.org:88/rp/

 To start off, Fleet Captain Samji has gathered intel on an encroaching Romulan ship that appears to have Lotus Fleet's own Star Base 10 as it's target. Immediate launch of the USS Artemis and USS Alsea to intercept this massive Romulan ship has been ordered.

 The USS Spectre and USS Lotus are prepping for deployment as well toward the Klingon border to intercept possible incursions by the Klingon's against the Horizon anomaly and, in due course, the USS McKenzie will meet up with the USS Pittsburgh, under command of an old Lotus Fleet Fleet Commander, Speaker-of-Names, to counter-act the Horizons Children. These fanatics believe the anomaly is their 'god', and presume to allow it to cleanse the galaxy of all unworthy life.

 Be sure to tune in and follow our intrepid federation crew's as they continue the fight to save the Federation and the galaxy.

  Lotus Fleet; Azimuth Horizon Role Play update: http://evshell.afraid.org:88/rp/

10 ships of Lotus Fleet are now deployed to combat the unique and dangerous Azimuth Horizon anomaly, and the various factions that have their own agendas surrounding this potential galaxy devouring phenomena.

 The flagship of Lotus Fleet, the Intrepid class ship USS lotus, with Captain Vir'ell Gould commanding, has left Star Base 10 with the Akira class vessel USS Spectre under command of Captain Daniel Summers. They are headed toward the quadrant of the anomaly nearest the Klingon border. They will attempt to intercept any Klingon response to exploit the Azimuth Horizon while deploying the unique combat strategy being used to destroy or contain the anomaly.

 Swift and fast, the Defiant class ship USS McKenzie, under Captain Daniel Crist, has paired with the Lakota re-fit Excelsior class USS Republic. They are to rendezvous on the Federation side of the anomaly and begin containment, while also being ready to thwart the Horizon's Children. They are a rogue faction committed to allowing the Azimuth Horizon to destroy the galaxy and let it start anew.

The New Orleans class USS Pittsburgh and the Nebula class USS Wisconsin, under Captain Onia, are headed to the anomaly's Federation side to begin containment procedures.

Lotus Fleet's Nebula class academy ship USS Aurora, under command of Commodore Brigham, along with the USS Steamrunner with Captain Ramabai commanding, are poised on either side of Star Base 10, ready to help where ever needed.

 And last, but not least, the powerful Prometheus class ship USS Alsea with Acting Captain Rachele Rivers commanding, has paired up with the also powerful Ambassador class re-fit USS Artemis, under command of Captain Kheren. Their daunting task, before tackling the anomaly on the Romulan side of it, is to intercept the Romulan Scimitar class vessel Shavok. This deadly ship is on course for Star Base 10 with unknown intentions, but Star Fleet intelligence does not think the Romulans are dropping in for tea.

 Stay tuned!

 Because there is no way the Klingon's are going to sit back and not try to use the Azimuth Horizon for their own ends; The Horizons Children will invoke the name of their prophet as they die trying to use the anomaly for their own nefarious ends, and the Romulans will undoubtedly have more than one ship circling out there in order to thwart Lotus Fleet's attempt to save the galaxy.

The battle has begun!

Lotus Fleet Role Play: http://evshell.afraid.org:88/rp/

Star Date: 87174

  The five ships of Lotus Fleet have been engaged in an attempt to stop the encroaching anomaly known as the Azimuth Horizon, an alternate  universe ‘Big-Bang’ phenomena encroaching upon our universe through a  space-time wormhole. It threatens to destroy the galaxy if not contained  or destroyed. The fleet flagship USS lotus, Intrepid class, lead the operation along the horizon's attack at the anomalies third quadrant  nearer Klingon space, accompanied by the USS Spectre, Akira class. They met expected resistance from a Klingon dreadnought and three Birds of Prey intent on using the anomaly for their own ends, but the two Federation ships managed to outwit and destroy the four Klingon vessels to continue on toward their assignment to contain the anomaly.

 On  the far side from the Lotus and Spectre at the Azimuth Horizon's quadrant four, the USS McKenzie, Defiant class, and the Excelsior class USS Republic undertook their part of the containment mission. But they were intercepted by a fanatical group of religious zealots known as the  Horizon's Children, who worshiped the anomaly as the savior of the  universe that would set all back to a glorious tranquility that only they could fathom. Led by Lord General N'Eligahn, a lost Lotus Fleet  officer of some time, they attempted to stop the two Lotus fleet ships from interfering with their 'god'. The attempt failed however, when one of the Lord Generals disciples, persons subverted to the Children's cause, was retrieved by his longtime friend on board the McKenzie and the small Horizon's Children's fleet was repelled.

 Meanwhile, in quadrant one, Fleet Captain Samji had deployed his remaining fleet along the border of the anomalies side nearest Star Base ten, home of Lotus Fleet near the Hromi cluster. These included the USS Wisconsin, Nebula class and the USS Pittsburgh, New Orleans class. Included with these were the Lotus Fleet academy ship's; USS Aurora, Nebula class and USS Steamrunner.

 Not the least of the perils evident though; As at quadrant two of the anomaly nearer to Romulan space, the Prometheus class vessel USS Alsea  paired with the USS Artemis, Ambassador class, to undertake their part of the operation Azimuth Horizon containment. They meet with fierce  resistance from Romulan intrusions bent on destroying the anomaly.  During the fierce battles that ensued, communications with star base ten  were cut off but they managed to defeat the Romulan attempt against the  anomaly.

 After  sending the Alsea to investigate the disappearance of two unmanned relay shuttles, the unexpected appearance of an Undine vessel threw the Prometheus ship into a losing battle for survival until the timely arrival of the USS Spectre, which had picked up the Alseas' distress  call. The now doubled Lotus Fleet squadron now attempted to fight the Undine ship for control of the Azimuth Horizon's destiny.

 Back at the Artemis however, things did not go smoothly for long, as  the attempted containment procedures on the anomaly started to backfire  and cause a buildup of universe destroying eddies to coalesce into the  alternate universe, which could not be allowed. Coupled with the fact  that the weak interception of the Alsea distress call enacted a star fleet directive to lend assistance, the Artemis separated her bridge module and sent it to help the Alsea and Spectre.

 :startrek090: Greetings Star Trek community members! As XO of the Operations Division I just want to add an update to the Lotus Fleet status.

For the past few months tier 5 & 6 Flag Officers and administrators have been behind the scenes building a new Lotus Fleet website. This has been contemplated and discussed for a while now behind the scenes, but this process is finally underway. This undertaking is literally taking the effort of a fleet to make this mammoth transformation as successful and effective as we anticipate. When this site is completed, all of our temporarily fragmented aspects of the Fleet including the Forums, the Academy and RP will once again be merging and thriving under one roof. This new website will truly be a home customized specifically to meet our many needs.

We will also be searching for new members who thrive on the standards that Star Trek represents.  Please let us know in what way you as a past, current or perhaps potential member can offer your skills, interest, time, and effort once we arrive to our new home. Be a part of this history in the making!

The information below is condensed from a recent post from Fleet XO Admiral Kheren relating to the current status of the fleet in regards to this upcoming move.

ALL HANDS ON DECK!
Official announcement on required duties to be performed.

Admiralty CO and XO, Fleet Admiral Donaldson and Kheren, will start on delegating jobs and overseeing them for all the fleet while putting up on the upcoming website the Fleet Leave Notifications page, an STO Fleet Invitation Requests thread and the Chain of Command and Open Positions forum thread. Of course, the Fleet Admiral will also have to write the Welcome to the Fleet address (brief overview of what we offer and progression from Academy Cadet, to Officer, to participation in Roleplay and Events, to Volunteering by applying for a position) and I, as Fleet Executive Officer, will take care of the thread regarding Lotus Fleet Positions and Volunteering (How You Can Help the Fleet ).

Academy Division under Rear Admiral Crist and Academy XO Commodore Brigham is to be brought back up an reopened with the official activation of the new website. As soon as possible, the website's Academy Division forum section must have a Joining the Academy introductory thread up. Then, filling up a full staff of professors and deans should be worked on to ensure that the Lotus Fleet Academy, the pride of this community, is made available again not only to our currrent and future fleetmates but to the entire Star Trek community as it was before.

Command Division under Rear Admiral Jureth and Command XO Commodore BattleLion is to plan for both reactivating recruitement and retention processes and activities, be it in-game in STO proper and on the game forum as with the larger Trek community and within the pages of our own home, old and new. As a start, The Internal Fleet Discussion section on the new website needs a thread regarding Information For Recent Graduates (how to get promoted, promotion path, awards). Fleet Relations Officer Captain BLZBUB will of course involve himself with the planning and execution of recruitement and retention with his XO and CO while these will also start working on recruiting officers to complete or, if needed, renew their staff. A new website means a lot of work for media people to be sure and a prime opportunity to revive our newsletter and in-site activities. There is also a need to come up with new fleet awards for STO in-game accomplishments, something long overdue but that the current website could not support as well as the new one will.

Operations Division under Rear Admiral Joester and Operations XO Commodore Jeff T is to step up activity in both Events and Roleplaying and work on recruiting personnel to fill up the positions in Events and RP sections. Until new officers are found to assume the tasks, Commodore Jeff T will handle events. Captain Evshell will continue his excellent work with our RP, especially making the RP site more visible and easily accessible from our new home and revamping the whole RP department following the conclusion of the current epic fleet action story. In the short term is needed on the new website forum threads on Roleplay Information and Participating in Roleplay (formerly "RP 101") and the same for Events and Joining in Events, including event announcements and calendar. In addition, Captain Evshell has already volunteered to bring back online the Fleet Signature Generator and all fleet forms on the new website.

Fleet Advocate Office under Commodore Sainthill and Commodore Redding is to ensure all fleet legal ressources are made known and available to fleet members on the new website as soon as possible. Threads presenting the office itself and the services offered as well as the officers serving there are needed, along with forum rules, Code of Conduct and any relevant "legal" document and information about the fleet that should be put up in the Fleet Advocate Office section of the Fleet Headquarters division of the forum.

And of course, as before, all Officers may create an introductory thread for the new website regarding themselves and/or their position and responsibilities if they so choose, under the appropriate Division. However, all division command officers must start looking at ideally filling up their division but, in any case, ensure that at least all required jobs are done in a timely manner for our September timetable. COs also need to plan how they intend to manage promotion points for people they are responsible of, as promotion points will be reactivated with the reopening of the Academy. For the short term, all COs will also be responsible for the actual input of all required posts and threads on the new website until we open it's access to more officers beyond the admiralty at a later date.

All officers of Lotus Fleet, you are being called to duty. Although there is no urgency this time, there is still indeed a lot to be done as you can see and we want it done quickly but efficiently. If for any reason you believe that you can't step up to the task, please inform your commanding officer so that we may quickly find you either some help or a replacement and get the job done. The sooner we can complete our goals, the sooner our fleetmates will finally enjoy what Lotus Fleet truly is and wishes to be.

All this is being here announced so as to inform everyone how things currently stand and what is planned for the near future. Any fleet member wishing to help in this great undertaking, please contact by PM the appropriate officer responsible for the field you wish to help in. http://www.lotusfleet.org

(P.S. Thanks for BLZBUB for keeping this tread active and informing everyone about the activity going on in RP. Speacking of which, the current  Fleet Action will be finishing up soon, along with the Resurrection of Icarus story... so there will be positions available for ne RPers to join in un the upcoming season. Note: lots of interesting new things upcoming in RP as well!)

So... stay tuned for additional updates as the opening ceremonies for the new Lotus Fleet website draw closer to an official announcement date.

 Thank you Commodore. This new home for Lotus Fleet will tie in nicely with the new fleet star base in Star Trek Online. Captain David Rogers and Admiral Kheren recently left some screen shots of Lotus Fleet's new star base currently under construction.

(Go to page 2 for those SS's)

And yes, Captain Rogers had been into the Saurian brandy during a small 'event' in the ship's galley. All is well now.

 Lotus Fleet role play season 3 is wrapped up and sent for novelization. All that is left before we start a new season is to hold an awards and remembrance ceremony, live on our star base, in-game.
 Unlike last year where we needed to use the main hall at Earth spacedock, we will be using the new level 5 Lotus Fleet star base. We hope that this new venue will allow a robust gathering of our fleet members to enjoy the pomp and circumstance that we have tried to convey in our latter ceremonies at Earth. Needless to say, being a private function, one needs to be a Lotus Fleet member in-game to attend the star base.

 Season 4 will get underway within a week or so, as we need to replace the Flag ship, the USS Lotus, and replace or repair the four main RP ships destroyed or damaged in the last Azimuth Horizon fleet action RP.

  The USS Lotus will be gracefully retired, probably into the Academy Division, and her new replacement ...straight from the shipyards, has arrived and sits awaiting her commissioning into the Fleet as the new flagship.

 Gone is the USS Artemis, our stalwart Ambassador re-fit. She gave her life defending against a Romulan incursion AND completing containment of the Azimuth Horizon anomaly. She will be sorely missed.

The USS Alsea, Prometheus class, was literally everywhere at once. her three section's provided much needed protection to the Spectre and Lotus, and sustained heavy damage from Undine and Klingon forces while the latter two completed their containment.

 The USS McKenzie also sustained much damage, and barely limped back to the Hromi sector in one piece after rescuing a lost fleet member from the Horizon's Children.

 USS Spectre lost many fighters during the mission, and her captain sustained trauma injuries that will keep him in sick bay for some time. If not for DYCEP armor on her, the Spectre would not have survived the incursions of the Klingon forces. It remains to be seen if this great lady, an Akira class, will be able to remain in the fleet.

 So, be sure to visit Lotus Fleet and read the latest RP season when completed. Novelization of the previous seasons are available as well.

 We also look forward to accepting members into our academy, which is open to all ... no need to join Lotus Fleet to brush up on your Star Trek knowledge. Our dean, Admiral Crist is more than happy to meet you at the door and show you around.   :startrek072:

 We shall see you amongst the stars.

 Lieutenant Hera, of Lotus Fleet (Command Division), has completed her first foundry mission ... "Klingon Skirmish".

 If you decide to try it out, please respond here with your thoughts and advice. I am sure she would appreciate any feed-back from experienced Foundry expert's.

Thank you Captain BLZBUB for the continuing updates on Lotus Fleet and the upcoming new RP season.

These ships are now in space dock within our Starbase, the crews are readying their departments, and the ceremonious launches are about to commence.
Be there for all of this activity when it begins.

In addition, there are site positions in the Lotus Fleet available for new members.

In the Command Division we are in need of someone with graphic skills and experience to become our Media Developer.
We also need Writers and Editors for our new Fleet  Newsletter.

In the Operations Division we could us an RP Assistant, an RP Recruiter, and Event Planners.

In the Academy, we could use several Academy Professors, such as Professors of Tactitical & Security, Science, Medicine, and Operations.

So if you are a connoisseur of Star Trek related activities, conversations, etc... then you may very well find a home in the Lotus Fleet. Come check us out and inquire!
