Astraios Prime has a planet wide annual festival that raises funds for, and awareness of, Drs Without Borders—an interplanetary organisation that sends doctors into warzones, regions that have been devastated by natural disaster and political turmoil, and into under resourced communities where medical infrastructure is in short supply. To support this initiative, Starfleet provides locals with a glimpse into its exploration, contact and peacekeeping operations through a display of cutting edge space technology and a talk about the aims and progress of Starfleet in the sector.
In past years our displays have included simulations of missions but this year, the main part of the exhibition dealt with a presentation of the brand new SS Astraios which came online just a few weeks ago. CO, Captain Vala, gave a welcome to the large audience gathered and an overview speech before handing the podium to his XO, Lt. Cmdr Soulstar. As one of the principle architects of the new space station, Soulstar was able to provide insights into its operational parameters and other special features of this advanced facility.
Our display included Xenobiological curiosities, a mini-medical suite—in theme with the festival, and a fully manned starship bridge simulation in flight mode. Civilians crowded into the bridge in what for many, was a glimpse of the future.
