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.

Please welcome Midshipman Calvin Cooper. He will be playing a cadet trainee from the Academy assigned to the Crown's engineering department. His current rank is temporary until I sort out a technical problem with our rank set. So please address him as Cadet while in character. Welcome, Mister Cooper!

Posted on Thursday September 24th, 2015 @ 4:47am by Captain T'Zera in General News

Greets, all. I'm happy to present three new characters!

Lt(JG) Hamish McDermott, Assistant Chief Medical Officer. Hamish is an Obsidian Fleet veteran coming back after a brief hiatus. I have simmed with this player before and am thrilled to have him here.

Ensign Marisa La Fleur, Intelligence Specialist. Another simming veteran who is coming back to give it a new try. And again an excellent player with whom I have simmed before.

Ensign Catalina De Santa, Intelligence Support Specialist. Cat is actually new to this kind of simming. She's got writing talent and she's eager to get going. Please show her kindness. I have no doubt you will.

The word on the street is that XO Ral is going to wave his GM wand soon and make interesting things happen. But what do I know? I'm just a commanding officer.

Time for my yearly vacation/visit to my mother, will be totally out of contact on both Sundays (traveling) and unknown how web access/time will be for the rest of it. But best to plan on Karulean being unavailable during that block of time,


» 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.

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.

Baela ignored her and stopped an arm's length away from Jason. The d'ktagh was in her hand. "You're an effective warrior, Mitchell. And honorable. Just as I had hoped." She turned the blade around and offered it to him hilt first. "I want you to kill me too."
