The Long Jump program has sent many ships to a new star cluster near a completely different galaxy. With the discovery of an old civilisation related to several Federation worlds and the colonies that have sprung up around Canopus Station, the Federation has seen a need for a revival of the old hospital ships that came into wide use during the Dominion War. The first of this revival- nicknamed MASH after the 20th century Earth equivalent- is the USS Sherman Potter. With mostly medical missions, the Potter’s support crew will require basic EMT training as they may be called upon to help. These missions will include Carcosian, Federation, and independent settlements as well as some of the local peoples.
With the arrival of Starfleet in Messier 4, Carcosia has been thrust into the Myriad’s view. After a Reka attack on a Carcosian settlement, the Sherman Potter is called in to help with the injured. There are a lot more in need of medical attention than was first reported, putting a strain on the ship’s facilities.
