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.

» One More for the Intel Department

Posted on Wednesday July 23rd, 2014 @ 6:25am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Please welcome Lt.(JG) Lucas Drake who will play the role of our Assistant Chief of Intelligence. Nice to see that department suddenly getting an influx of eager players. Welcome aboard, Mister Drake.

On a different note allow me to point out the kind and generous news item posted by Lt.(JG) Plumeri of the Nimitz over on the joint mission site. You've probably seen it but in case you haven't, it's here:


Even if you're not interested in playing a Salonian NPC there's still plenty of opportunity to be had for your regular character. So if you're stuck for something to post about don't hesitate to ask the command team here or some of the Nimitz players. We're all in this together.

Please welcome our new Chief Intelligence Officer, Lt. Alexander Richardson. He comes to us as a transfer from another Obsidian Fleet sim, and has many years of experience in Star Trek RPGs. Let's make him feel at home.

Posted on Wednesday July 2nd, 2014 @ 1:51am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Hi, all. My RL job tends to get busy at the end of June and the better part of July. I don't expect to totally disappear from you but in the event that my presence does become sporadic, XO Aleran Ral and CSO/2O Tavik have my full authorization to keep things moving both in-game and out. They've both had command experience so they know what they're doing. Possibly more than I do. ;)

Also the beginning of a new month means awards. This crew did some fine work during the month of June. The quality of writing was superb. So please consider recognizing your shipmates with an award and a brief citation.

Posted on Saturday June 21st, 2014 @ 1:29am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Hi, all. It was one year ago today that the first post written by players of the USS Crown went up on the main page, effectively bringing the ship to life as an Obsidian Fleet sim. How far we've come in only that one year! While writing out our own little slice of the Star Trek universe we have also forged some good friendships and earned a few honors and compliments. It's been a great ride.

I never tire of saying how proud I am of this crew. Not only of you who are here now, but also of those who have had to depart. Every player has offered a measure of their talent in making the Crown what it is. I am immensely gratified by that. It has been my privilege to lead you, and hopefully it will be for more years to come.

Happy Anniversary, USS Crown.

Hey guys.

I know I've probably shown this to a couple of you before but we do have some new players who may not have seen it yet.

Sci-Fi Avatars is a site that produces free to use character avatars in star trek uniforms. They have a vast array of premade avatars and a forum section where you can request an avatar.

I got the Ral in Command red from a request I put in on their forum for example and Chief Cal my npc from their list of premade avatars.

I'm not saying you guys have to use it I just wanted to to put it out there for you should you have the desire to have a character avatar.

They have male or female photos. Uniform choices include the Ds9/Nemesis duty uniforms and dress uniforms. Voyager uniforms, Next Generation, and Flight suits.

Included races are:
