The USS Hawaii now embarks on her fifth mission: Ohuna - The Secret


» Meet the Female NCOs of Hawaii Plus Awards, Promotions, and a New Mission!

Posted on 26 May 2019 @ 2:09am by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



This month's feature is our female Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs): Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer (ETC) Jessica Wilson, Senior Chief Master-at-Arms (MACS) Isabella Kelly (pictured above left), and Yeoman First Class (YN1) Halona Grayson (pictured above right).

Our NCOs not only provide specialized tasks to the departments they serve, yet they also provide leadership to the enlisted crew and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCOs) also provide leadership to the Officers they mentor.

ETC Wilson is an Electronics Technician by trade and serves as the Engineering Leading Chief Petty Officer (ENGLCPO), which means she oversees the enlisted personnel of the Engineering Department as their SNCO. Between Lieutenants Deeli Kosu (CHENG) and Iria Taltos (ACHENG), that means ETC Wilson is quite busy, ensuring the tasks of the Engineering Officers are dutifully carried out.

MACS Kelly is a Master-at-Arms by trade and serves as the Tactical/Security Leading Chief Petty Officer (TACSECLCPO), overseeing the enlisted personnel of the Tactical/Security Department as their SNCO. MACS Kelly has also been instrumental in managing the experimental K9 Division. She is often seen assisting LTJG Harry Stevens (ATACSEC), the senior officer of the department, ensuring the ship is secure and ready for battle.

YN1 Grayson is a Yeoman and serves as the Executive Department Lead Petty Officer (ADMIN). While she is not a SNCO yet, she is the Non-Commissioned Officer-in-Charge (NCOIC) of the Executive Department, overseeing the ship's paperwork. She is often seen assisting the Command Team, Commanders Tolkath (2XO/CSO) and Juan "JJ" Zamora (XO) along with Captain Akio Tachibana (CO) in executing their duties. As a Yeoman, she is trained in protocol and is very hospitable to visiting officers. YN1 Grayson is also talented in foreign languages, so she can often be seen assisting the Diplomatic Department as well. During battle, her station is in the CIC, staffing the comms.

» Can she fix it? Yes she can! Meet the ACHENG: Iria Taltos

Posted on 01 Mar 2019 @ 2:19pm by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



This month's feature is Iria Taltos, our Assistant Chief Engineer who was recently promoted to Lieutenant after helping keep the Hawaii together during the Second Battle of XFY.

Taltos originally joined us from the USS Wyoming when she was left aboard the Hawaii during the Battle of Canterra when her Senior Staff hastily departed back to the Wyoming as both ships came under Gorn attack, a mistake that probably saved her from a worse fate as the Wyoming rammed the Gorn vessel and any survivors were taken POW by the Gorn and experimented upon.

Unbeknownst to many, Taltos is an Isisean, meaning she can transform into a feline, an homage to Star Trek: TOS, Season 2, Episode 26: "Assignment: Earth".

As you may remember, Taltos was also recognized by Task Force 93 as the Player of the Month for September 2018.



We look forward to the future adventures of Taltos, our resident cat engineer!


» Is that an Emotional Support Animal? Yes, it is! Meet Sombra, PLUS Promotions and New Orders

Posted on 31 Jan 2019 @ 3:46am by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



Sombra is an On-Call Therapy Animal when she is not supporting LT Amiri Aldana 365.

Recently, Sombra saw action in helping out Sickbay during the Second Battle of XFY.




In the Aftermath of the Second Battle of XFY, Hawaii suffered 5 KIA & 42 WIA. 18 of the 25 recovered POWs from the USS Wyoming were also injured.

Currently, the Hawaii is conducting repairs before making the approximately 3-week journey to Canterra IV. (OOC: We will be doing a time jump, although there are many in-transit posts brewing!)

Hawaii's orders are clear: Establish Ground Operations on Canterra IV.






Congratulations to the following personnel on their promotions!


Edward Bolingbroke, 24th Viscount Creedmoor
CO, Bravo Marine Special Operations Company (BMOSC/CC)
3d Marine Raider Battalion


Harry Stevens
Chief Tactical & Security Officer (TACSEC)
USS Hawaii


Iria Taltos
Assistant Chief Engineering Officer (ACHENG)
USS Hawaii


» Congratulations, Harry, you're Chief Tactical/Security Officer & End of Second Battle of XFY

Posted on 27 Dec 2018 @ 7:22am by Captain Akio Tachibana in General News



Ensign Harry Stevens hails from Basildon, England and is an avid archer. The Hawaii is the young ensign's first posting and he originally joined the crew as our 2nd Assistant Chief Tactical & Security Officer during the Bre'el IV Mission before becoming the 4th Chief Tactical/Security Officer of the USS Hawaii when LT Winchester was transferred to XFY.

While inexperienced as seen during the elusive hunt for the Gorn CMO aboard the Hawaii when he went missing, Ensign Stevens has proven himself capable during battle situations and CAPT Tachibana has come to rely upon his protection, including the services of Lady Sif, Ensign Stevens's K9 companion.




The Second Battle of XFY has concluded. The USS Hawaii is conducting repairs and taking care of after action items.

The new-type Gorn Cruiser was allowed to escape to tell the tale of the Gorn defeat after the Hercules Battlegroup, consisting of a dozen ships that will accompany the USS Hawaii and USS Devonshire to Canterra, warped-in just in time to destroy one of the saucers of the Gorn cruiser that was on a collision course with XFY.

The Hawaii boarding party, led by CDR Tolkath, was able to retrieve a Gorn raider, runabout class, vessel during their return. They were also able to rescue 25 survivors of the USS Wyoming, including Sgt Kyle Walken and ENS Edtoto Nar'Sivaro.

Yet, there were casualties aboard the Gorn cruiser, including the incapacitation of LT Kosu when she was studying one of the new Gorn torpedoes.

The Hawaii will be heading up Battlegroup Hawaii while the USS Devonshire heads up Battlegroup Devonshire, each with their own sets of orders for the next objective of the Gorn Campaign: Canterra.
