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 Tuesday February 14th, 2017 @ 8:01pm by Commander Lhaes Sommers MD in Sim Announcement

Been talking with Adm Hurin as there was some question as to when posts should take place while at SB80. The Crown crew arrives at SB80 approximately 2 weeks after the Casino bombing. So there is still a lot of damage on the station and they are still at a heightened state of alert.

For questions regarding the bombing I can answer some of them (as I am SB80's XO, Seklar) but the finer details can be answered by Adm Hurin.

Please welcome Counselor Chiron Lowe to the sim. We're glad to have you, Counselor. I have opened up "New Headings" for those of you who want to JP with Chiron. It's our next interlude and takes place on Starbase 80. We'll be taking our R&R there and doing a little cross posting with that crew. Some of you already play characters there, which makes it easy. If you have no character there and are interested in interacting with some of those players, then drop me a line and we'll see what we can figure out. If you've ever wanted to meet the TFCO and tell him what you really think of him, now's your chance. Or you can just go shopping on the Promenade, because all your possessions were probably aboard the Crown, and...you know.

Meanwhile, I'm busy with other preparations behind the scenes. Stay tuned for further announcements. Not trying to be coy. It's just that I first have to make certain requests of Fleet and I can't get ahead of myself. Bear with me.

I'm also working on a final post for "The Hunted." Hopefully I'll have it done in the next day or two. After that I want to close it up so if you've got a JP in progress for that mission please get it completed.

Finally, some of you may have noticed a few issues with the site. Apparently many Utopia Host sites are having troubles. Please be patient and know that we have top men working the problem. Top. Men.

Well, it wasn't much of an absence, but the player behind Aidan Datari has returned in the guise of Cmdr. Lhaes Sommers, an intel officer who has been around the fleet for a long time. Good to have you back!

Posted on Wednesday December 21st, 2016 @ 7:00am by Commodore T'Zera in Out of Character

Hello, all. If you have not already done so, please note that an abandon ship order has been given on MD 31 at 1155 hrs. Take it into account for any characters you have aboard ship. The mission is going to take on a different dimension as we move towards a conclusion.

As always, if you have characters sitting idle and want to JP, then drop me a line and we'll invent something to make their lives interesting.

Finally, Counselor Tobias Moreau has left for other pastures. We wish him the best.

Hi, all. Please welcome Lt.(JG) Jacob Hanson, our new Chief Engineer. Hanson is a seasoned player who has been around Obsidian Fleet for a long time. He also commands his own sim and works closely with me in our Task Group, the "White Tigers." I'm glad to have him with us.

Mister Hanson is diligently working on his intro JP. Like K'Vagh he's coming in on an NPC ship, but he'll be among us soon enough so please send offers his way.

Thanks to all who are hanging in there while your CO and XO endure their RL travails. We're approaching the point in the mission where questions will be answered, and maybe things will get a little explodey. Stay tuned.
