Last night, the USS Brookway engaged in training ops with the USS Potemkin. Using the codenames "Artemis" and "Hera," the two crews worked together to bring the Potemkin's crew up to speed as well as to help them get familiarized with their ship.
The two crews operated together, working in tandem, with a mixed crew; some of Brookway's crew went over to the Potemkin, while some of the green bridge officers of the Potemkin came over to the Brookway for training.
The arrangement worked well. All hands gained valuable knowledge and experience. It was after a few training runs that both ships received orders to patrol and protect all Federation assets within their assigned patrol zone.
Immediately after arriving, Klingon and Romulan ships began harassing Federation shipping. The Brookway took the lead with the Potemkin keeping abreast while the two ships pummeled the enemies with phasers and torpedoes.
After coordinated ops for a few hours, the crews all came aboard the Brookway for one last mission. All stations were manned and the hybrid crew worked brilliantly together, bringing in many Klingon and even Romulan ships as captured bounty while sending all others who failed to surrender (or took too long to surrender) to their respective makers.
(It was a great night of fun and excitement! The two-ship operations were a blast!! Officers from age 9 to 47 took part, and all were able to fulfill their duties successfully. What a great game!!! Here is some video of our game tonight: http://youtu.be/nixDCVn79Ac
