You're still in training. They call you green, a rook, or a neophyte, but you do your duty. You now have access to fleet-wide communiques (Patreon-only posts), notifying you of the goings-on in the Ascendancy fleet. You'll also receive a monthly letter from the Admiral thanking you for your service.

Everything's new and strange. This is where you find out if you want to keep moving up. If I'm honest, it's not for everyone. There are dangers you won't see coming. I can't force you to press on, but I can promise whatever path you choose will be rewarding.

Congratulations, you’ve been promoted! Even though you’re still a junior officer, you have valuable experience and your peers recognize you for your service. In addition, you're given the opportunity to choose in which Bladeship you wish to serve. There are nine in total: Titanus, Cyclops, Wyvern, Triton, Telamon II, Templar, Revenant, Hyperion, and Atlas.

Choose carefully. You won't get very many opportunities to transfer.
Report directly to a Lieutenant on your Bladeship. Welcome aboard, Ensign.

🚀What is the Ascendancy?

Excellent question.

The Ascendancy is a revolution.

Many hundreds of thousands of years from now, humanity is still at war.

Only we’re out among the stars.

We are still fighting for ideals like freedom against tyranny.

We love and we hate. We're flawed.

We're human.

The Ascendancy is a reaction against the corruption of the Dominion Constellar, an intergalactic empire led by High Lord Cammius Giorigan.

Queen Elie Gentile of the planet Cadmus started it all.

She and several other regents drew away half of the military might of the Dominion.

They started a war that would last two decades.

But we had spread so far out among the stars...

...we never thought our wars would disturb gods.

Now, as new threats face humanity, the men and women of the Ascendancy are among the few who can face them.
