USS Hippocrates


Welcome to the USS Hippocrates!

While Starfleet’s exploratory and defensive arms often get the most attention, one has to remember that Starfleet is also the greatest humanitarian armada in the galaxy, with legions of purpose-built hospital ships serving alongside engineering support vessels, rapid-response crisis starships, and diplomatic couriers that are sent to put out the embers of diplomatic disputes before they turn into full-blown brush fires. The Hippocrates is one of Starfleet’s premier Olympic-class medical vessels, which are the largest mobile hospitals in the fleet. Capable of treat up to a thousand patients, while supporting deployable surface facilities to triage thousands more, she carries a medical staff of 750 in addition to 150 starship support personnel, making her as complex a command as Starfleet’s largest explorers. Her captain must not only be an experienced physician but also a commanding officer who can get her through postings on the Federation’s most distant borders with only the most basic armaments to ward off pirates, let alone major threat vessels. The Hippocrates is one of the most sought-after assignments for medical personnel in the Fourth Fleet, and Fleet Operations is ready to send her to lead the way with humanitarian operations all around the galaxy.

Wind whistled through the pines. The air was crisp and clean with the sun hanging brightly overhead. A single sorrel horse with a white blaze and three white socks carried a single rider along a narrow dirt trail.

Livvy inhaled deeply as she crested the top of the hill. The…

So I figure Bikram is setting up Somna with an empathic interface for her computer work and has an idea these two bring to Livvy for your approval to try out?

Bikram attached the diodes gently, the interface was wired directly to Somnas nervous system. He waved…
