Clear Skies is a webseries from the Streampunks group, focusing on actual play sessions of a Star Trek Adventures campaign. The series premiered on January 13, 2020, on the QueueTimes channel on Twitch, with videos uploaded to YouTube later in the week. The first episode was simply titled "Prologue".
Clear Skies focuses on the crew of the USS Ross, the first ship of her class, in 2381, several years after the USS Voyager returns from the Delta Quadrant. As a new ship designed to test new technologies, the Ross is assigned to the Shackleton Expanse, the setting of Star Trek Adventures's Living Campaign.
Though the series is a "spiritual sequel" to the group's previous webseries, Shield of Tomorrow, the copyright to that show's original creations remained with its producers Geek & Sundry, meaning that none of the Shield of Tomrrow's characters or concepts could be followed up on in Clear Skies.
One week before the series premiere, a Q&A session was streamed, where it was announced that a secondary campaign, focused on a Klingon captain and crew, would be streaming alongside the main Clear Skies campaign. Also announced was a special partnership with Star Trek Online, in which the USS Ross would appear in that video game. However, unlike the USS Sally Ride from Shield of Tomorrow which functions as an NPC ship in STO, the Ross would actually be a fully-realized playable starship.
