Mission Summary

After being effectively fired from Starfleet Intelligence due to an incident in the Raeyan Transit Corridor, Alexander Night was reassigned to the newly minted USS Southern Cross. After successfully finishing a three month fast track command course, Night and the skeleton crew, including the future Chief Engineer Rodney Miller and the Strategic Operations Officer Celesia Rahn set off for Driaan V where they would intake the rest of the crew.

While Alexander goes to meet with their unsuspecting Commanding Officer, Jack Lashmore, the rest of the crew given disembarking privileges. Lashmore, retired from Starfleet at the time and trying not to become a politician on his homeworld of Driaan accepts the reactivation orders Night brought with him on the condition that the CMO that was en route, an old/current/possible flame from Jack's past sets foot aboard the ship first.

Jack goes to meet the infamous CMO, the bajoran Torrna Maliya, a former crewmate of Jack's from his days on the USS Roanoke. While it was an initially rocky meeting it passes by realtively calmly. Meanwhile, Celesia Rahn welcomes aboard Kylara Jax, the new Ship's Counselor who was given orders to board the ship without special announcement to gauge the mental states of Lashmore and Night. Celesia, a former patient of Jax's is understandably surprised.

Once the name Asami Inoue is connected with the Southern Cross, most of the veteran crew of the Dominion War more or less jump to conclusion as to who the woman assigned as Chief Science Officer is. It is in fact her name sake and almost twenty years younger woman who is assigned to the ship much to the awkwardness of all parties involved. Jack and Alexander have a meeting with Rodney Miller and award him the rank of Chief Warrant Officer and offer him the position of Chief Engineer which he accepts.

While Alexander and Jack make a trip down to Driaan to recruit a certain ferengi bartender, Torrna meets Chief Warrant Miller and things do not go well in a match of 'genious hypochondriac Engineer vs grizzled prideful Doctor'. Miller and Torrna leave things on a very sour note. On the other hand, Jack and Alex, after successfully recruiting the ferengi Brenk, meet Kylara Jax, working out in the Gym. The three end up having a drink in the officer's mess hall.

The crew starts slowly coming in for their physicals and more of them get to know eachother.

A senior staff meeting is held at the Function Hall, where Lashmore, Night, Celesia, Torrna, Jax, Inoue and Miller are joined by Lieutenant JG Shisa, the Chief of Operations and Lieutenant JG Agron Drag'nah the freshly arrived Chief Flight Control Officer.

Jack delivers the briefing. The crew and ship are to undergo a shakedown assignment in the nearby Hromi Cluster. Along with testing out the ship's systems they are tasked with the most primal of Starfleet's tennats. Discovery.

So with open hearts and wondering minds, the Southern Cross and her crew set off on their first mission together.
