Earth Spacedock, Earth, Sol System - Stardate 57659.8 (29th of August 2380) ~~~ (You don't have to board the ship via shuttlecraft. You can use the transporters, board the ship via docking port, or wander around Earth Spacedock. And yes, you can already be onboard the Asahi.) ~~~ Commander Jason Alexander Clearwater gazed out of the shuttle's viewport as it approached what was going to be his home for the next couple of years, the USS Asahi. As the pilot maneuvered the craft around the ship, Jay took in every detail of the ship. The Vesta-class was the newest and most advanced starship class in Starfleet, the ships are also the testbeds for experimental technology, including but not limited to the quantum slipstream drive. "Quite a fine looking ship, sir. Wouldn't you agree?" The young Andorian Ensign piloting the shuttle asked with a smile as she took the shuttle into the Asahi's main shuttlebay. Jay nodded as they made their final approach, "Indeed she is, Ensign. Indeed she is."
