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.

Olivia Sandoval was bored. There were no two ways about it. Night shift, on the bridge of a starship in port left little to occupy the mind. But, regulations required it, and it was command experience after all, so that never hurt when looking for an XO or CO position…

Aimee stared incredulously at her sister standing in front of her holding a tray of food. “Hey Aims,” Livvy announced as she sat down across from her without an invitation.

“What the hell are you doing here?” Aimee said with a scowl.

“I’ve been posted here.”
