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.

Posted on Sunday June 5th, 2016 @ 6:16am by Commodore T'Zera in General News

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.

Hi, all. Please take note of the JP that just went up. The ship is underway so the main plot of the mission will begin soonish. If you're still working on things that go back a few mission days then don't worry, we won't get too far ahead of you.

I just put up our most recent Unit of Merit from Fleet. This time we got a Silver. It was Rear-Admiral Hurin who nominated us, and among other nice things he said the following: "It is of my opinion that the USS Crown has been a shining star within not only the task force but the fleet in general." Well done, everyone!

Finally, a little birdie told me that our own Counselor Moreau had his birthday today (March 29th). Best wishes to you, Counselor! We hope you had an excellent one.

Hi, all. Please welcome two new players into House Crown. The first is Senior Cadet Aris Razur who will be our Media Relations Officer, and the second is Lt.(JG) Meyer Erentz who comes aboard as Chief Flight Control Officer. It's always nice to add new faces to our ranks. We are glad to have them with us.

Please send JP offers their way if you haven't done so already.

Our free posting period on Earth is nearing an end. Sometime in the next few days we'll pull up the anchor (these things have anchors, yes?) and set a course for the Nkosia Sanctum. Once there I'm sure things will go swimmingly and nothing of note will happen at all.
