AH.com The Series was a weekly episodic series that followed the misadventures of the crew that made up the Multiverse Exploration Ship AH.com, as they traveled from one alternate universe to another. Captained by Doctor What, the nemesis to the AH.com and its crew were the Fallen. The AH.com's main rival was the CF.Net and its crew, commanded by Ward.
The AH.com: The Series universe was created by Psychomeltdown and has been additionally expanded by the numerous writers and contributers over the last four years. Writers who have written three or more episodes are denoted as “Writer Chimps”, which, obscurely, is a much coveted and competed for title.
By the beginning of the fifth season, the Series has produced 118 episodes and has “outlasted” many real-life science fiction shows in terms of longevity and material.
There was also a spin-off series, AH.com: The Next Generation, initiated by Jord839. A sequel to both the original series and the spinoff, AH.com Enterprise, is currently in the works, helmed by FDW as showrunner.
In the beginning, the AH.com ship was a captured prize by the Human Unity, which at the time was in a desperate war against an invading, Multiverse-spanning empire controlled by Neanderthals. The AH.com, along with its sister ships the Alterverse and the CF.net, were refitted with weapons and crewed by the remnants of the Human Unity Space Fleet, under the command of Admiral Ward who also commanded the CF.net ship.
After the war against the Neanderthals, the CF.net, AH.com, and Alterverse were used to patrol and ensure that there was never a recurrence of the devastating invasion their planet had suffered. During this period, there came a new threat, the Devourer of Worlds, a deadly machine/creature that crossed from universe to universe, destroying planets for purposes unknown.
The ships along with the majority of the Human Unity Space Fleet attacked the creature, only to be nearly completely annihilated. The tattered remains of the Human Fleet regathered, the survivors making hasty repairs and reorganizing their ranks. With its commanding crew dead Lt. What, a science officer, was put in charge of commanding the AH.com by Admiral Ward. The Human Fleet re-attacked the Devourer and was once again shredded by the creature's power. Lt. Bruno What, his ship battered and remaining crew dead, saw the battle as lost and with some difficulty ordered the ship into a blind shift, fleeing from the battle, this act sparking Admiral Ward's undying hatred for what he perceived as Dr. What's cowardice in the face of an attack.
Ward and the CF.net managed to survive the fight, but the Alterverse was destroyed.
Doctor What currently commands the AH.com ship, though upon his in-series temporary death, command transfered to Grey Wolf. Command was also given to Landshark/IronYuppie when Dr. What and Grey Wolf left the ship. Currently Doctor What is in command of the ship once again.
More information on the CF.Net crew can be found on its dedicated page.
