I've just realised that I should have number the stories, so that folks reading them could actually see the order in which I meant for them to be read. So here you go, with a little peek at what is to come... 1 - Connecting The Dots March 2374 - As the U.S.S. Orion nears her launch date, her new Captain assumes command and the crew begins to assemble for the many hard tasks ahead of them. 2 - Broken And Bloodied April 2374 - The Orion carries out search-and-rescue operations on a recent battlefield, looking for survivors, seeing firsthand just what the true costs of the war really is. 3 - Amid The Ruins May 2374 - Assigned to salvage the remains of the task force in the Volnar System, Lieutenant Jachim must face some very personal ghosts from his past when he must return to his previous ship, the U.S.S. Evanescence. 4 - The Only Easy Day...
