In ancient Greek mythology Athena was the Olympian goddess of wisdom and good counsel, war, the defence of towns, heroic endeavour, weaving, pottery and various other crafts.

All of those things are to be expected in the stories we want to tell. (Including even the part about weaving and pottery, if you're so inclined!)

A brand new sim, the USS Athena is a Prometheus-class ship designed to be on the frontlines of the conflicts Starfleet faces. That needs a crew that is committed, adaptable, and capable. They're likely to be sent into situations where a firm hand is needed, beyond mere diplomacy.

We know that Starfleet as an organisation is peaceful and exploratory - but there are times when tough decisions need to be made and outcomes aren't always black-and-white. Our aim is to tell some stories where players have the opportunity to face up to some interesting moral dilemmas with a lasting impact - and challenge their own ability as writers in the process.

We want the community on board the Athena to create an atmosphere where players can find a home they're excited about. As a command team we're committed to making Athena the best it can be; a place where character development and exciting stories are paramount and fun is the name of the game.
