The Story so Far....
Rising from the ashes of the American-Iraq War of the early-2000's the era of World War III was a period of conflict on Earth that eventually escalated into a nuclear cataclysm and genocidal war over issues that included genetic manipulation ,human genome enhancement, resources, etc. World War III itself ultimately lasted from 2009 through 2012, and resulted in the death of some 40 million Humans.
The Eastern Coalition,a coalition of nations in the Middle East and China, directed attacks that included the United States and it's allies. In 2009, Russian President Alexei Stukov was assassinated. The Russian Government quickly pointed blame at Iran, because of recent actions taken against Iran in the region. Unable to solve their problems through diplomatic channels, it was Iran that unleashed the bomb. It was responsible for 20 million lives.
A large alien spacecraft bursts through subspace and enters Earth's atmosphere, crashing on a remote Island in the South Pacific. The nations of the world, who are engaged in a global war at the time, call a cease-fire to assess the alien threat.
Official investigation of the derelict alien spacecraft begins. The crash site on the island is designated a UN sphere of jurisdiction. The global war officially ends, though the terms are not satisfactory to all parties.
According to the first report of the study of the alien spacecraft, it is discovered that the ship is military in nature, and its crew are on average, 2 times the size of human beings and are reptilian. Terrified by the all too real prospect of invasion from deep space, a campaign is initiated to unite the Earth under one unified government.
Research for the development of weapons and defense systems for use in combat against the alien threat begins. after a few years trial and error scientists had created the first energy weapon.
Originally designed for ground combat, this project eventually leads to the development of starships being fitted with Plasma weapons and Hull Plateing.
With the integration of Human-Volgaran computers, a engine is built that can take a man across the Galaxies, the mass production of a large starship fleet (Alpha Fleet) is formally announced to the world.
Though a few radical religious sects persist, they are quickly disappearing, as most of the world accepts these new conditions....
the one government proclaimed, The United Earth Directorate(UED).United Earth HQ is built in San Fransisco.
Construction of the first permanent base on Mars, named "Sara", begins.
The Mars Defense Perimeter is a UED defense mechanism, designed to protect the inner planets of the Sol system, and specifically Earth, from intruding hostile vessels. Part of the defense perimeter is a series of attack ships.
Official launch ceremonies celebrating the maiden voyage of the USS Patriot, the UED flagship, begin world wide. The mood is that of hope and joy as mankind makes these first steps into the unknown....
USS Evangelion looms in the shipayard, it's crew's journey is about to begin.
Episode:00 -EARTH FIRST-
You and several other people are being transported to your new assignment via shuttle craft.The shuttle adjusts it course and thats when you see it:
As you get closer and closer to starship the view screen turns on. There stands a brown haired man in his mid 30's, dressed in UED Fleet Command clothing, a person you could assume as your C/O. He speaks with a calm voice as he smiles slightly:
"Welcome to the USS Evangelion. . .
As you can already tell, we currently are docked at the San Francisco ship yards, in orbit around Earth.
Currently our tasks are to recrew and finish the refit of the new warp core engine, " he pauses and adds," it's max speed is warp 5"
When you report aboard, first go to sick bay and have your boarding physical with our chief medical officer, Dr.Wright, whom is already onboard. After that please come to observation lounge , there I will give our orders in full, with the entire crew.
All Senior Officers, i.e command staff and Department Heads will report to me after the briefing until the Executive Officer comes on board and assumes his duty. As soon as that happens you will report to him . . .
I do not know how long we will remain in star dock, but I can tell you that it won't be very long.When we finish here and are commisioned an active vessel in the UED Fleet our underway training will take place as we transit to our destination.
I also encourage you all to wander around the ship, she's certainly not as big as the Patriot, but this lady has a lot of sting, the stores, and endurance to handle a three year mission without needing a starbase.
I wish you all well and again welcome you aboard.
The screen blinks off just in time for shuttle come a landing inside the the shuttle bay.The shuttle door opens and reveals crewmen running around,apparently to meet the launch deadline...
