Welcome to the USS Crown

The USS Crown is an Insignia-class starship under the command of Captain 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.

Here is an entry about this mission's project, the weather control device. Kind of brief, I know, but we may add more to it later.

Actually no one ever said that but...you know.

Anyway, in a few more days we'll be coming up on this sim's two-year anniversary. It's a remarkable achievement in my opinion. In this difficult game that requires discipline and creativity it's satisfying to see that we've had some staying power.

In honor of this milestone a kind artist named AdamJCross over at Deviant Art has created a series of Insignia-class renderings with our ship's name and registry number on the hull. The first one is now on our front page.

My deepest thanks to you, the players, who have worked hard to make this sim what it is. Also hugs and high fives.

Hi, all. I'll be closing up "The Continuing Mission" and we'll begin in earnest on "Fatal Forecasts." The first JP for the latter is just about done. We're back on a regulated timeline, which means that only Mission Day 1 (MD-1) is open for now. Please don't write any posts beyond that.

For those who don't know "Fatal Forecasts" is the brainchild of our XO, Commander Aleran Ral. We're going to do things a bit differently this time. He's going to be the GM and I'll be playing along with everyone else. Like you I can only guess where the story will be going. So if you have questions or ideas please direct them to him, with maybe a courtesy copy to me so I can stay in the loop.

In other news Dr. Amoran is on LOA. She's had a lot going on lately and may need a few more days to get back into the swing of things. If you want to write a post in sickbay then feel free to tag our resident reptilian Dr. Vanorax.

Finally we have two new faces joining us. Please join me in welcoming our new Counselor, Tobias Moreau, and our new Chief Engineer, Elias Lindholm. Just in time for the next mission. Welcome aboard, fellas. Thanks for the excellent timing. ;-)

I think that's all the news that's fit to print for now. IC we're at warp and we're on a course to rendezvous with a ship named the USS Tempest, which we will then escort to Pacifica for the purpose of installing a new weather control machine. Nothing out of the ordinary is happening so far. That's your background for any posts you wish to start.

» Next Mission

Posted on Thursday May 21st, 2015 @ 12:33am by Commander Aleran Ral in General News

Hey guys,

Our next mission will be kicking off this upcoming weekend. I know some of you are eager to get going again but we want to give everyone a chance to finish their current jp's before moving on so please try to push those through. I will admit I myself haven't been around as much as normal because I just started a new job a couple weeks ago and I'm still getting acclimated to the schedule.

I don't want to give too many things away about our next mission but I can tell you it'll take place on Pacifica and it's going to be less restrcitive than our previous mission. We want to give everyone a chance to do their own thing and contribute in their own way without the restrcitions we put on you during the last mission. If you have any questions feel free to PM me with them.

Thanks
