» Creedmoor or Bolingbroke? Both! Meet the Team Leader of the 2d Marine Special Operations Team

Posted on 07 Sep 2018 @ 3:41am by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



1stLt Bolingbroke's royal title as 24th Viscount Creedmoor does not serve him well in the Marines, except getting him some monikers and being the punch lines of jokes. Yet, this Team Leader will just as quickly put his boot where the sun doesn't shine if you get out of line.

Bolingbroke joined the Hawaii during the Bre'el IV Mission where he helped lead a team to secure the perimeter of the new Federation Diplomatic Mission as well as the classified installation of a Starfleet monitoring station.

He was integral to the search and capture of the missing Gorn Doctor, LTJG Sthilg after he was suspected of being a traitor by the USS Wyoming and later disappeared in the ensuing battle with a new-type Gorn Cruiser.

Now, 1stLt Bolingbroke is leading a team to board that same Gorn Cruiser when it appeared while the Hawaii and Devonshire were docked at XFY.

It's all hands on deck as the Hawaii heads towards combat alongside the Devonshire as the Gorn Cruiser attempts to get revenge.


» Klingon Involvement at XFY; Meet Luuna, a Reserve Starfleet Working Dog (SWD)

Posted on 22 Jul 2018 @ 3:31pm by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News

As the crew continued investigating the disappearance of LTJG Sthilg, the Gorn CMO that disappeared following the Battle of Canterra, LTJG Taltos made a discovery that the weapons signatures on the damaged sections of XFY were actually Klingon.

The large implications are vast as Starfleet is currently assisting the Klingons in a Civil War.

Currently, the Hawaii Command Team is running the discovery up the chain and coordinating with the Devonshire Command Team before both ships depart to the Gorn Front as part of OPERATION DRAGON FIRE (ODF).



Luuna is a service animal for LT Amiri Aldana 365, our Chief Medical Officer. However, when the Security & Tactical Department needs Luuna, or she picks up a scent, she follows her nose!

Luuna joined our ship during at Bre'el IV and we look forward to seeing her in action (and hopefully not too much trouble).

It has been a while since I've done a news post! Great job crew on the awesome posts and JPs. Keep up the good work :)

» En route to XFY; Introducing the TACSEC

Posted on 20 May 2018 @ 4:56am by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



The Hawaii is en route to Xavier Fleet Yards (XFY) after the Battle of Canterra where the USS Wyoming was destroyed. The Gorn possess new technology that allows firing through shields intermittently. The crew is currently investigating the Gorn technological advance as well as the disappearance of LTJG Sthilg, the CMO.

A couple senior officers were wounded in action, necessitating a crew shuffle. Starfleet also promoted several of our officers:

CDR Tachibana to CAPT,
LCDR Zamora to CDR and XO,
LCDR Tolkath to CDR and 2XO,
LTJG Winchester to LT,
LT Aldana to CMO,
LTJG Dran to CDO,
ENS Jones to OPS.

Congratulations!



Lieutenant Jake Winchester is the third Chief Tactical and Security Officer (TACSEC) of the Hawaii. He joined us at Bre'el and is in charge of investigations, maintaining security, and tactical operations aboard the Hawaii. He stands tall at 7'1" and will not likely take 'no' for an answer to something he wants.

We are conducting a roll call as we wind down the current mission and transition to the next, so if you have not reported in yet, please do so in the OOC Log!

Additionally, please see info on XFY here.

Gunnery Sergeant Gaius Sejanus is the third Gunnery Sergeant to join the USS Hawaii and the 3d Marine Raider Battalion! A Magna Roman, the fighting spirit is strong with Sejanus as exhibited by the sparring we've already seen among the marines.

Congratulations to the Crew on another successful major JP in Aloha Wyoming! You can really feel the tension and emotion (thanks in part to the playlist Tolkath found haha). I was even thrown for some creative loops there by y'all! I had a lot of fun writing this one and hope you did too! For those that weren't part of it, do not fret. There is plenty of story left for everyone!

The Hawaii is currently under RED ALERT as there has been another contact identified during our patrol after rendezvousing with the USS Wyoming. The bridge crew is reacting to the new contact currently after an attempt by the USS Wyoming CO to remove CDR Tachibana from command of the Hawaii.

Newly commissioned in 2388, the Hawaii is a Sovereign Class Starship operating in Task Force 93, Bravo Fleet.

The USS Hawaii is tasked with providing security, counter-intelligence, and counter-terrorism by Starfleet. Federation President Jarul Bezar commissioned the new vessel to help combat the Gorn invasion at Cestus and Canterra.

Providence Fleet Yards completed construction of the USS Hawaii in compliance with President Bezars's Executive Order and the Hawaii is currently in standard orbit around Bre'el IV after conducting her shakedown cruise. The Hawaii successfully secured the use of Bre'el IV's transports/supply ships for the Gorn Theater.

After 48 hours of liberty planetside, the Hawaii completed an Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance patrol along the interim Gorn-Federation Border near Cestus and Canterra during which Hawaii rendezvoused with the USS Wyoming and the ships were engaged by a new-type Gorn Cruiser equipped with torpedoes that could bypass Starfleet shields in the Battle of Canterra. The USS Wyoming was lost with all hands while the USS Hawaii retreated to Xavier Fleet Yards (XFY).

Currently, the same Gorn Cruiser from the Battle of Canterra has appeared at XFY and the USS Hawaii along with the USS Devonshire, also docked at XFY, are engaged in the Second Battle of XFY.

We are always taking on crew. Feel free to look around and enlist if you like what you see.
