Welcome to the USS Crown

The USS Crown is an Insignia-class starship under the command of Commodore T’Zera. She is the proud flagship of Task Group 72-C, the “White Tigers,” in Obsidian Fleet.

As a Starfleet vessel the Crown is tasked with the traditional goals of exploration, contact with other worlds, and defending the interests of the Federation. Her modular hull further allows her to take on mission-centric roles. In our journeys we have traveled to places well-known in the Star Trek universe as well as places where no one has gone before.

Sorry for the late notice, but I will be traveling to and from and at a convention from 1-8 Aug and unlikely to have much time for the internets while it is going on. Will be back to help out on the 9th,.

It was in June of 2013 when a newly-appointed Obsidian Fleet CO took the reins of an unfinished website and, with two newly-recruited players, wrote the first JP for the USS Crown. The JP was about a new CO who meets two of her officers at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards to inspect their still-unfinished ship. Obviously we didn't go too far into our imaginations for inspiration. Those are the breaks of being in restricted operations.

Three years later, the sim is doing well. We have a fine group of players, several missions have been completed successfully, and the Crown is designated as the Task Group flagship for 72-C. Plus we've earned a few awards along the way. As a CO I'm gratified to see how things have turned out.

My thanks to all players, past and present, for pouring your hard work and creative talents into this sim. May our journeys continue to be as fruitful.

Happy Anniversary!

Please give a welcome back to Karl, who returns with his character Lt. K'Vagh. Karl was a member of our crew back in the early days, then had to take a break because of RL obligations. Luckily he got the itch for simming again and returned to us. We're happy to have him back.

Lt. K'Vagh is already hard at work on his first post. He's not on the Crown but en route. He'll be with us soon enough, however, so please send JP offers his way.

"It is logical," T'Zera replied. "There is much evidence that someone was there, actively working against us. What happened with the thruster quad was no accident. And when Ensign Calva went to correct it her compartment was vented…

Somen stood outside the type-11 shuttle 'Boudicca' doing his pre-flight check, waiting for the others to arrive. It would be a short trip compared to the interstellar distances the Crown had already crossed, but to Somen it was one long on import; their trip would bring them to the…
