These are the Voyages of the Starship Aurora. One of the Federation’s New Nova Class Planetary Survey Vessel’s. Meant to eventually supplant the Older Oberth class Science vessels, Starfleet is slowly phasing the ships in, to help develop parameters of their Operation based upon actual experiences of crew’s manning them.
The Captain and Crew of the Oberth Class Science Vessel U.S.S. Yasuni, is one of the first to have their ship decomissioned
The Captain and some of the Crew from the Yasuni are being transferred to the new vessel the U.S.S. Aurora, and some new crew are being transferred in.
Our story begins as the crew, old and new are having a Celebratory drink at the “Russian Invention” a bar on the promenade of Starbase 67.
The crew old and new are mixing, in anticipation of the transfer of command, and commencing on the ship’s Shakedown Cruise
