Welcome to the U.S.S. Artemis!

"I was told once that this ship isn't like other ships, and you know what? It's not. It seems to attract trouble like it's looking for it, but it also breeds a remarkable sense of strength and ingenuity into the crew that live here. We don't have much of the frills or fancy stuff that the prettier ships get, but we always get the job done. We take care of our own. We protect the Federation. But it's a hard life, and that's not for everyone. This ship... She'll make you, or she'll break you. Either way, you'll never be the same."
--Captain Brynhild Kleim, SD241804.10

In 2406, the USS Artemis was commissioned as a border patrol vessel. The name was born upon the updated Akira-II tactical carrier, and outfitted with a number of experimental systems to help keep the Federation border protected. From day one, she was a ship without many frills but with a lot of fight.

Then...during the the Federation Civil War in late 2413, the USS Artemis just disappeared.

Now, she's been found again. Discovered abandoned in an asteroid field in 2417, with no clue as to what happened in the meantime.

The Federation does not have the luxury of putting aside working vessels, and so the Artemis has been brought home. The mystery remains and they will always look for the answers, but now a mix of old crew and new has been brought together to take her back out to the border. To once again keep the Federation safe.

Anyone walking by the locker room may have heard muffled grunts coming from somewhere. Moments later, a jeffries tube hatch popped open and the CAG pulled herself out. With atmospheric controls offline, the ship was becoming quite cold, but thanks to climbing from the bridge to…

Kat eyed her CAG in the dim light as the woman came through the cranked-stuck open turbolift door. More people seemed to be making their way to the bridge when they had to climb than when the damn lifts were working...but that was a thought…

With her shift practically done, Andrea left the flight deck with the intent to make her way to the lounge to grab food. She'd skipped lunch and was absolutely famished. The lift was empty, and then it wasn't. Artemis appeared, and Anakah was about to say hello,…

The voice of Sergeant Victoria 'Vic' Dolan echoed slightly in the now-freakishly silent Marine deck where the company had been working on various tasks they oversaw while the ship was on patrol and not being manhandled by whatever species happened to be pissed off…

It all happened so fast.

Artemis suddenly appeared everywhere, screaming, and then it went black. That terrifying, pure pitch black that the primitive part of the human brain—as well as in many other races—knows simply as something to be horrified by. With the instant of the…
