Welcome to the USS Nautilus NCC-853962!

The year is 2384, and welcome aboard the USS Nautilus, a Ronin class Strike Cruiser tasked with exploring the area of space around the crumbling Dominion in the Gamma Quadrant.

Space the final frontier...

The Dominion War is a thing of the past. It has been nine years since the bloodiest conflict in recent memory and the Federation stands on the precipice of uncertainty. While the Klingon, Cardassian and Romulan Empires lay in ruin following the Borg offensive of 2381, and the Dominion, an entity that has existed for thousands of years, has begun to crumble under its own weight, new enemies, new dangers emerge. Entities like the Typhon Pact and the Scarlet Hand, have begun to fill the void created by this decline. While peace is finally a possibility, with the Federation the dominant power in the known galaxy that doesn't mean that there is no danger however. This is space after all and space is a dangerous place.

For the first time since First Contact with the Dominion, the Federation once more has a presence in the Gamma Quadrant, though not entirely diplomatic. The Federation turns to Peace Enforcement, to ensure that the Dominion adheres to the terms of the surrender, while also exploring a region of space otherwise unknown to them.

The USS Nautilus is at the forefront of this new mission. One part Warship, one part Peacemaker. There is no illusions, the Nautilus is a ship of war, like many of her namesakes. But this new Nautilus travels the stars, protecting those who cannot protect themselves, and to push back the boundaries of the frontier.

Even if trouble finds her, the Nautilus is very much a ship of peace. She is an explorer, a diplomat, but one that can defend herself if necessary. She is the largest ship to bear the name, and like many of her namesakes, she is on the very forefront of an ever changing galaxy.

Do you have what it takes to serve as a member of the USS Nautilus, a Ronin Class Strike Cruiser? The days of exploration are not over but this vessel was built with another purpose in mind. Join the Nautilus and her crew as the defend the ideals of the United Federation of Planets, brave the final frontier.


Stardate: 52861.3
Location: En-route to the planet Golgotha in the Gorgamon System

Mission blurb

Mission Status: Escorting Starfleet Sector Commander Admiral Walter Bennett to the signing of an officiating ceremony, where there will be a gala, but not everything appears above board as the suspicion of treason still hangs over the crew.

Hello all,

It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that Ross (Captain Renshaw) has lost a member of his immediate family. As a result response to Joint Posts from Ross may be somewhat delayed. This is only temporary, so please don't stop posting, Ross will no doubt return to his usual prompt habits soon.

If there are any issues in the ensuing period, please direct all questions and issues to me so as to allow Ross to focus his attention where it should be, with his family.

I'm sure I speak for everyone in expressing our most heartfelt condolences on this loss.

The Captain would like to extend his apologies for his extended absence, he is currently experiencing a greater than expected work load. In the mean time feel free to work on personal posts with various members of the team, hopefully things will pick up again soon.

» A Change in the Guard

Posted on Mon Jul 21st, 2014 @ 12:19pm by Captain Tobias Renshaw in General News

With deep regret I must announce that Chris Reeder, our gallant XO, has had to step down from the position due to a change in work commitments.
While he has resigned from the post, I have not accepted his resignation from the sim.

While we have always stated that the Real world comes first, I have given Chris the option if he should take it, to continue posting as his secondary position as SRU pilot.

Peter Hough (Lt Killpatrick) has stepped up to fill the XO position in the interim.

We also welcome Vladimir Gustav to the crew as our new Chief Engineer.

Hopefully he will last longer than the others :)

Also keep up the good work, I am seeing a lot of good posts, and remember if you ever need LOA or whatever, let me know, but remember, the Nautilus does adhere to a post per week methodology.

I know I haven't been strict with this in the past, but that is going to change.
