USS Alexander

Welcome to the USS Alexander one of Starfleet's newest and most advanced Deep Space Carrier's - the pride and Flagship of Obsidian Fleet.

The newest of Starfleet's Ascension class starships, the USS Alexander has been assigned to the Aurellian Belt as the forward operating base for Obsidian Fleet. Her purpose is exploration, support and tactical awareness in a sector of space that is quickly becoming a hot-bed of hostile activity. Based off of Catus XI with the support of the Marines of Camp Falkirk the Alexander is the shepherd tending its fleet flock.

The Aurellian Belt is perched along the edge of an unexplored region of space colloquially known as the Desolate Expanse by those few species that have braved the Aurellian Belt - of which few have crossed into and lived to tell the tale. The Belt itself is home to dozens of systems and hundreds of worlds, almost all of which are uninhabited and barely habitable; much like Catus XI, home of the 2nd Marine Division.

Beyond the belt is the Desolate Expanse - an uninhabitable stretch of space filled with strange anomalies and uncharted planetoids. There are whispers of a great power that inhabits the far side, but no Starfleet vessels have had any official contact.

At least not yet.

The Alexander is perched at the edge, eager to explore and ready to defend the Federation against the growing shadow here in the Aurellian Belt or anywhere in the Federation.

Dum Spiramus Tuebimur

While We Breath, We Will Defend.

The crew of the Alexander knows just what the Federation means; they know its mission and its purpose but they also know the reality of life in the Galaxy. Despite the advances of the Federation, and the utopia it has ushered in on its member worlds, not every species in the Galaxy shares their utopian values. Those that seek to dominate, intimidate and out right destroy others are more numerous than even the most pacifist among them can imagine.

Those who call the Alexander know that they may be called upon at any moment to be the tip of the sword if and when conflict arises. That there scientific pursuits, no matter how substantial or ground-breaking will invariably have to wait as the Alexander steams into conflict. That they are a part of something far greater than themselves. Be they ambassadors, scientists, or warriors.

They know that failure isn't an option. They are on the raggedy edge of the galaxy facing enemies that have no knowledge of the Federation, her ideals or the power she might muster once properly driven to act. The crew of the Alexander knows that retreat is impossible, and that to lose means giving the enemy a foothold they cannot afford to. While they breath, they will defend.

Starfleet, the Marine Corps and the Federation are not certain what lies beyond the Desolate Expanse. Uncertain what enemy lurks in the void that has been harassing the population of the Aurellian Belt and testing the limits of Starfleet's power as they moved to defend their newly gained holdings. The lack of knowledge only makes the Alexander's presence that much more important as every day that passes finds everyone more and more convinced that there will not be a peaceful solution to be found.

Here on the Alexander the crew is busy studying, exploring, training, developing, building and otherwise preparing themselves and Starfleet for whatever fight lay in store. As the knowledge of the Aurellian Belt begins to spread throughout the Federation and related space, bringing with it a flood of refugees and pioneers looking to forge new lives away from the hustle and bustle of the core worlds it puts the crew of the Alexander into a tighter position, now poised to defend not only themselves, and their Starfleet brethren but the civilians streaming into the area as well.
