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.

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.

As I'm sure most of you have heard Mr. Nimoy or Spock as most of us think of him passed away at 83. Since he was more of a mainstay than Shatner really, and perhaps just as big of an Icon for the brand as good ole Kirk was I thought we should share a respectful moment for the man.

Are there any Crown players besides me who play STO? Also, does anyone know if OF has an in game fleet?

I've been slowly working on adding to and reorganizing the site's Wiki/LCARS to make it a real tool for players on the Crown.
I'd like to know if any of you would like certain things added or elaborated on in the wiki in someway or another. If you have any ideas let me know via pm and we can discuss it. I'd also like to ask you to refrain from adding to it on your own for now, at least until I organize it better and properly formatted.
Can't wait to hear the crew's thoughts and ideas.

Happy New Year, everyone. We will now resume where we left off. As before I would like for everyone to check in so I'll know you're still with us. MCPO Bouchard is excluded from this requirement as Sara is still on indefinite leave of absence.
For the rest of the mission I will assume control of Carlo's NPCs: Karath, Emris 4, and the Male Changeling. However, if I can get a volunteer or two to play the Dominion characters that would be most helpful to me. Carlo's main character Esper has been made an NPC and placed back in the position of Alien Archaeologist/Anthropologist, the position for which he originally applied. She will likewise remain with us for the duration of the mission, albeit in the background.
Some other notes:
Chief Engineer Jacob Thortin has tendered his resignation due to RL commitments. We wish him well. If anyone requires the services of an engineering department officer then Lt. Taj Belur or Ens. Derek Han will fill the gap.
End-of-Year (EOY) award nominations are going on right now. If you're interested in nominating someone for CO, XO, and Character of the year, then write a brief citation and send it to me. The deadline is January 15th.
I found an unfinished solo post from Carlo. Even though it's unfinished I would hate to simply delete it. So I will activate it shortly to get us jump-started in the new year.
