The year is 2391. Starfleet continues with its primary goal of peaceful exploration and contact with new species, while maintaining the security of the Federation, its colonies, and its allies. To rise to these challenges Starfleet has commissioned a new class of multi-purpose vessels known as the Insignia class.

The USS Crown is the newest of this class. 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 prepackaged 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.

Hi, All.

I will close "Intermission" at the end of this week.

Awards time is upon us again. If you wish to nominate one of your Crown shipmates, please do it through the Crown website. If you wish to nominate someone from another sim, please submit your nomination via PM to Admiral Hurin or Commodore Damian at the Joint Mission site.

Last, and certainly not least, thank you all for the excellent posting you've been doing.

Hi, everyone. Please welcome Dr. Hugh Elwyn, who will be joining us as Assistant Chief Medical Officer. He's a veteran player and he has created an interesting background story for his character. Be sure to check it out. Welcome aboard, Doctor. You made it just in time to join us for the next mission.

And again, if anyone starts up a new post, be sure to do it over at the joint site where the mission is being played. There are still many "Intermission" posts sitting around in various states of completion here, so please let's get those wrapped up.

» More Posters and LCARS

Posted on Monday February 24th, 2014 @ 2:58am by Lieutenant JG Zallian Marnier in General News

Hey guys,

Tavik messaged me recently saying he was thinking of combining our Intermission posts into another PDF, and suggested--if I was interested and had time to kill--I could do another movie poster for the cover. I found an idea to inspire it and threw one together--I put both links below.

Having a day off and not much to do, I got carried away and whipped up an idea I had for Scars of Progress and... earlier in the month I did one for the (still in progress) story Karl and Rich and I are doing during intermission, An Unexpected Adventure. I put links for all of them below.

I also thought it would be good if I could write a bit about the Bridge, as I like being able to visualize things. I did an LCARS based on the picture from the Tour on the site, from a picture that is out there of a bridge module being installed, and from my imagination. If I contradicted stuff already written or you think I just got it wrong, please edit it.

There are only a few things I can do in photoshop that come out looking okay, but if I can ever do anything for you guys or for the site let me know and I'll give it a try!

Hope you enjoy some of this stuff, and don't judge the amount of free time I seem to have ;)

-Levon

Posted on Saturday February 15th, 2014 @ 9:22am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Hi, all. Our first-ever joint mission, "The Scars of Progress," is officially a go and the first tag has gone out. If you still have not set up your character over there at the joint mission site, then please take a minute and do so now. The first JP is an all-hands-on-deck type of post and I need everyone there. Here, again, is where the site can be found:

TASK FORCE JM SITE

Since there are still many "Intermission" posts in the works I will leave it open, but please get those wrapped up as soon as you can. Also don't start any new posts under that banner. Any new posts you write should be over at the other site and relevant to the next mission.

PM me with any questions or concerns, and hope you have fun. See you there!
