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.

» Brief LOA

Posted on Thursday August 27th, 2015 @ 9:21pm by Lieutenant JG Aidan Datari in Out of Character

My brother is getting married next week and my mom's brother has his 40th anniversary next week too so wednesday and thursday I am likely not going to be able to respond to any tags. Nor that saturday.

I'll have my phone, so I can probably reply by email as I often do when I'm at work (goes without saying it comes with the unasked request to please copy paste if you see "re: post title")

Anyway...yea...brief LOA.

Posted on Monday August 24th, 2015 @ 12:20am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Hi, all. Please welcome Dr. Richard Ballston as the Crown's new Chief Medical Officer. He is coming to us from another ship and is well-experienced at simming. Please make him feel at home.

Also if anyone is looking for a JP partner then drop me a line. Or anyone else on the command team for that matter.


» Follow-Up to Aidan's Hello

Posted on Thursday August 20th, 2015 @ 8:03pm by Captain T'Zera in General News

I was going to give Lt.(JG) Aidan Datari a proper introduction after some transfer formalities with OPM, but it looks like she's itchin' to go. ;)

The player behind Aidan is a long-time veteran of Obsidian Fleet. She commands one of the longest-running sims and also serves as a Task Group CO. She's also an excellent player. I'm excited to have her with us. We'll get started for an intro JP for her character soon.


» Hello!

Posted on Thursday August 20th, 2015 @ 7:29pm by Lieutenant JG Aidan Datari in Out of Character


I'm your new Chief Diplomatic Officer Aidan Datari. I've played a wide variety of characters before including diplomats...but this is my 2nd attempt at diplomatic officer. I'm writing this from the viewpoint that Aidan considers diplomacy 'just another form of language' so do please bear with me.

I also have a host of NPC's (that haven't been added to manifest yet as I haven't spoken to DH's yet but here they are:

Nveid tr'Rehu, Romulan/Betazoid civilian surgeon
Nathan van Breughel, human civilian psychologist/phycisian
Jayden Mitchell, Betazoid/Human marine (can also function as tactical officer)
Mira Green, Human (12wk pregnant) engineer (in training)
Yirina Logan, Orion/Trill (joined) diplomatic officer

» Player Departure

Posted on Tuesday August 4th, 2015 @ 5:01am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Dr. Summer Amoran has tendered her resignation from the Crown. I would like to personally thank her for all the contributions she has made here. She was with us since the early days. This sim will miss her.

On a separate note I'm again hearing reports of players not getting saved posts in their email. So I'm sending two copies of this news message. One through the site and the other directly to your email inboxes from my personal email address. I apologize for sending to copies of the same message but I have to do it to find out who's not getting it. So if you do NOT get two copies of this massage let me know.
