Well, in the UT, there was a Nova-class USS Sojourner that was destroyed at Lakesh a year prior to this story (March 2376). Perhaps Takashima had a friend on that crew?

Re: What's In A Name?

Whichever one comes out on top I'm sure I can think up a good reason for naming the ship that. Just have to wait and see what the results are on December 1st.

Well, in UT canon, the USS Endurance is assigned to the Andromeda Galaxy in the series The Endurance of Jesse Yeager..

Not sure if that happened before or after this, chronologically, however.

Though the odds of those two ships making contact with one another in the entirety of an unexplored galaxy is beyond remote.
I had a quick peek at TEoJY and it looks as though things kick off there in February 2377. The Mandela was sent out on her long-range survey mission in mid-late 2376, with news reports taking their time to get out to them, so by the time Takashima and the others go missing they might be oblivious to the Endurance's mission--so they would never know that had an ally in the same galaxy.

The Endurance mission was highly-classified so it is doubtful that any of the Mandela crew would know of it. However unlikely it is that your crew would encounter the Endurance, there is a fair chance they could encounter the H'lranthians as they travel widely. That could be a good thing or a very bad thing depending on the faction they meet. I would suppose the Kelvan (from TOS canon) might still be around the Andromeda galaxy as well.

Re: What's In A Name?

I'll read it this weekend. I don't foresee any problems with having two ships in Andromeda though, but just to make sure there isn't any stepping on any toes

I haven't read TEoJY. Does it meet the great storytelling standards of the Lone Redshirt?

Re: What's In A Name?

I also think Sojourner is a good name. If this is going to be a UT story or series, there is a Starship Venture just so you know. It comes from Gibraltar's series. You'll have to check with Gibraltar to see what's up with that ship.

Well with only 1 vote so far it doesn't look like Venture will be a strong contender anyway.

No toes injured here, Bry. That's a huge universe. I'm sure there's room for two Federation crews.

Praise to the Great Bird for that. My real preferences were in my first post anyway, I just chose Venture by elimination. And didn't realize it was a multi-choice poll, darn it.

Just getting into Endurance now, the ships is 24 light-years from Earth, and loving it. Weirdly enough it seems like when she and the alien ship crossed galaxies happened within a day or two of one another...spooky
