Welcome to the USS Crown

The year is 2391. Starfleet continues with its goals of exploration, peaceful contact with new species, and maintaining the security of the Federation. To rise to these challenges Starfleet has commissioned a new class of multi-purpose starships known as the Insignia class.

The USS Crown is among the latest of these vessels. Her unique, modular design enables her to quickly adapt to changing requirements, depending on the needs of the service. On one mission she may be outfitted with advanced sensor and research packages to make her a science vessel. Then she could swap out those modules with new ones containing pre-packaged medical and humanitarian supplies for disaster relief on some far-away world. After that she may swap modules yet again to ready her for routine defense patrols, or to serve as an ambassador's ship, or to ferry colonists. The mission possibilities are nearly limitless.

» End of Mission Awards

Posted on Thursday March 26th, 2015 @ 9:35am by Commander Aleran Ral in General News

Hey guys it's that time again... Except this time we're going to do things a little different.

For awards nominations from now on, the Command Team is going to responsible for assigning all awards to players based on their contributions during the mission to keep confusion and multiple nominations of the same award to the same player to a minimum.

But what we'd like for you guys to do is to message the CO and myself who your choice is for Crew's Choice Award. The crew member with the most votes from their peers will receive the Crew's Choice Award for that mission.

For those of you waiting on time served awards we have track of those and we like to issue those along with the others at the end of the mission. Once all awards are posted we'll put a list up of who was awarded what so you all can congratulate each other on the great jobs you all do.

If you have any questions on the matter shoot us a PM and we'll get back to you ASAP.

-XO Ral

P.S. We've already been working on this current list and all of you will be receiving something for your contributions.

I noticed that some of you have already started writing JPs that occur after the events of "Quests and Quandaries." Great! So I went ahead and opened our next chapter, entitled "The Continuing Mission." Please place those new JPs under that mission banner. More details will follow about this next mission and the one after that in the coming days. Stay tuned.

Hello, all. The current all-crew JP marks the resolution to the current mission. So if you haven't tagged in yet then please do. I'd like to get it wrapped up by 31 March which is a thoroughly achievable goal. Then we will have another mission in the can!

Besides posting another reason to visit the Crown's site is to see the updated promo ad that Commander Aleran Ral has created for us. He put a lot of work into it and endured a few headaches along the way. The final product looks great. As I said it's embedded on our front page but you can also find it on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/BnferEJy5Y0

Thanks for your efforts, XO. Well done.

Hello, all. February saw a bit of a slow-down but we still showed a respectable level of activity. Thanks to those of you who are still checking in regularly to respond to tags or keep me updated on your status.

Various things were also tugging at me throughout the month which left me feeling a bit drained and distracted. Sorry for that. I'm still here, however, as are the other members of the command team. We've been discussing a roadmap to bring the current mission to a conclusion. Our own Mr. Tavik has been exercising his creative mind and has come up with something that should be fun. We'll get a new round of JPs set up soon so be ready to tag in.

Finally, in addition to Commander Ral's kind comments about Leonard Nimoy I'd also like to express my sorrow at his passing. He was a part of Trek from the original pilot all the way up to "Into Darkness." In addition he invented a lot of what we know about Vulcan culture, which in turn influences the way I play my character. It's hard to imagine the Trek universe carrying on without him I will miss that voice and that arched eyebrow very much. If anyone has an idea for how the Crown can pay tribute to him please let me know.

"I'm detecting a lifesign, 10 to 12 meters below us" the Vulcan science officer informed the others.

"What kind of lifesign?" Vanorax asked, trying not to sound as apprehensive as he felt.

Tavik was still staring into the abyss above them. Meanwhile, Quelle appeared in a flash of white light on the other side. She was wearing mountain climbing clothes of the 24th century, and looking away from the Starfleet officers. "Hello Starfleet, hello?" She turned around and pretended to be…

"You're not leaving are you?" Quelle asked.

"Are you ready to remove us from this time and return us?" Ral asked the Q impatiently. "Your game has gone on long enough."

Derek did a count of everyone filing in to the cramped escape pod. There were one short. "Where's…

The twins vanished in a flash, leaving everyone standing in silence.

A moment later a stranger emerged from the dark tunnel. Androgynous and frail-looking, with dazzling robes and a large, pulsating brain.


The Talosian stood blocking their path. He said nothing at first.

T'Zera cautiously took a step…
