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.

Sorry that I did not mention this sooner, but I will be away at a convention, what with travel from 27 Jul to 3 Aug and mostly out of touch during that time.

I also have a weeks vacation in early Sep though I should not be as busy then and should be able to check in at least.

Posted on Friday July 17th, 2015 @ 8:21am by Commander Aleran Ral in General News

Hey everyone, so for this week the main timeline for the story is the installation of the module and shore leave for the crew during off hours. We're being more flexible with this mission so your characters have been given their responsibilities. Feel free to collaborate with one another and write some solo posts of maybe working on the installation or maybe enjoying Pacifica.

After the installation is complete(we will have a jp finishing that up and activating the device) the Crown's crew is invited to an Earth style luau thrown by the pacificans and we will also have a group jp for that as well.

So for the next week please meet the posting criteria and enjoy stretching your creative legs. If you have any questions or input don't hesistate to pm me.

Thanks Guys

Just wanted to make sure everyone is aware that the device the Crown's crew is installing is an updated replacement or the old obsolete control device that is already on Pacifica. I've noticed a few people seem to think this is new tech or the first one on Pacifica. The one the tempest brought and the crown is installing is simply an upgrade to a newer model.

Aside from that I just want to say great job so far everyone. You all are doing a great job so far and I just want to say keep it up. If you do have any questions about the mission feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll get back to you as quick as I can.

Keep up the great work!

Here is an entry about this mission's project, the weather control device. Kind of brief, I know, but we may add more to it later.

Actually no one ever said that but...you know.

Anyway, in a few more days we'll be coming up on this sim's two-year anniversary. It's a remarkable achievement in my opinion. In this difficult game that requires discipline and creativity it's satisfying to see that we've had some staying power.

In honor of this milestone a kind artist named AdamJCross over at Deviant Art has created a series of Insignia-class renderings with our ship's name and registry number on the hull. The first one is now on our front page.

My deepest thanks to you, the players, who have worked hard to make this sim what it is. Also hugs and high fives.
