Ship History

The history of the USS Apache actually dates back beyond her launch. While Star Trek: A Call to Duty was still associated with Paramount Digital Entertainment the game was seeing a massive influx of players due to the popularity of the most recent Star Trek movie, "First Contact". As a result, the Game Manager of A Call to Duty (James Alan Young) put out the call for new ships to be commissioned in the game. A contest was started to name several new ships and one of the winning entries was "Apache".

Star Trek: A Call to Duty has long held specific naming conventions for specific types of ships. For instance, all Galaxy Class ships are named after mountains and all Starbases are named after forests. In the case of Apache, it was clear this vessel would be a New Orleans class vessel as vessels of that class are always named after "tribes". She would become A Call to Duty's second New Orleans Class vessel, with the Comanche being the first.

All of this occured in late 1998 and shortly afterwards A Call to Duty lost its affiliation with Paramount Digital Entertainment. With the influx of new players slowing to a trickle of what it once was, plans for new ships were put on hold and it wasn't until the following fall that the Apache would have its first mission. In the meanwhile, Cheryl Blaney-O'Quinn, Fleet Manager for the Apache, busied herself with chooseing a Ship Manager for the Apache. Eventually Bryan Paveza was selected to be in charge of the administrative side of things. Bryan then selected Susan Church (Tyria Turnbull) to Captain the Apache and participated in the selection of Rick Brookins (Alexander Valrek) to serve as the Apache's first Executive Officer.

Finally, on August 27, 1999, the Apache launched with a crew of 8 (out of a possible 14). Since that time the Apache has earned a reputation for being one of the best ships in the fleet. For the next two and half years both Susan and Bryan remained with the Apache through many crew changes. Although Rick Brookins would eventually be replaced with Heather Lane, it would be the familiarity of the Captain and Ship Manager that would allow the crew to adventure into areas of the imagination far beyond that of many other ships.

It is the communal imagination of the crew that has made the Apache great. With an average service time aboard the Apache far exceeding that of many other ships, the Apache's crew has grown into much more of a family. Currently, Ramon Apodaca (Storal Kylorean) commands the Apache and Debbie Newell (Janet Naegle) serves as the vessels Executive Officer. Now under the Administrative lead of Heather Lane, former Executive Officer and then Captain of the Apache, the Command Crew of the Apache strive to continue to provide a quality game-playing environment for the vessels crew.
