Mission #1: Phoenix Rising

The contents of the Ship Logs are considered to be a "compilation" under the provisions of Title 17, U.S. Code (known as the Copyright Act): that is, "A work formed by the collection and assembling of preexisting materials or of data that is selected, coordinated or arranged in such a way that the resulting work as a whole constitutes an original work of authorship." As such, it is the property of the ship’s Captain; however, automatic transfer of ownership to STARSHIPS OF THE THIRD FLEET is effected upon publication of this mission by the ship’s Captain ipso facto.

As outlined in Circular 1 (Copyrighted Basics, Library of Congress, Washington DC, USGPO 1989-262-309/12), "copyrighted in each separate contribution to a periodical or other collective work is distinct from the copyright in the collective work as a whole and vests initially with the author of the contribution."

This mission may not be reproduced in any form without the express, written authorization of STARSHIPS OF THE THIRD FLEET.


USS PHOENIX (NCC-2315) is the newest starship in Third Fleet. It is an upgraded EXCELSIOR-class Fleet Action Coordination vessel (a Heavy Cruiser specially outfitted to perform command and control functions for a Battle Force or a Task Force), and has been officially turned over to Starfleet by her builders. The ship is presently docked at Starbase Flying Cloud, a Type-79 Clipper Ship-class starbase in orbit around Enya, fourth planet of the Sabrena’s "i" star system in the Third Quadrant. Commissioning ceremonies were completed a week ago and the permanent crew is reporting aboard.

This is an exciting time for the new crew of USS PHOENIX. Not only do they have to learn their way around the ship, but they must also check and double-check the equipment, meet new people (both peers and senior officers), and begin the sometimes daunting task of becoming a team instead of just a collection of individuals who happen to be in the same place at the same time.

According to the schedule published by Commander, Third Fleet, USS PHOENIX will move from J-Dock (inside the giant docking bay of Starbase Flying Cloud) to Mooring Buoy 15, 100 kilometers away from the starbase, in six weeks. There the crew will prepare the ship for its shakedown cruise.
