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 Thursday September 15th, 2016 @ 4:30am by Commodore T'Zera in General News

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.

» Three Years and Counting...

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!
