  1. STARBASE 118 — Originally scheduled for several weeks of shore leave on Starbase 118, an emergency transmission from Starfleet Command abruptly curtailed those plans, demanding an immediate recall of the USS Resolution crew. While attending an awards ceremony and social gathering held by Fleet Captain Nicholotti to celebrate the completion of the Resolution’s first mission, First Officer Addison MacKenzie received the transmission from Admiral Bartameus. According to MacKenzie, the Admiral outlined a dire situation involving a request for help from the Da’al, a non-violent, warp-capable sp
  2. The huge list of actors and actresses that have graced our screens as part of the Star Trek universe adds to the complexity that is our favourite sci-fi show. These secondary characters that add a depth to the stories we love to watch. It’s only natural that a stray actor might fill multiple roles. And then there’s American actor Jeffrey Combs! This man played multiple memorable characters and his name should be synonymous with Star Trek! On Deep Space 9, he played the Vorta clone Weyoun. His masterful execution of this servant of the Founders and Directors of the Jem’Hadar foot soldiers of t

He won the Voyager Medallion. GALVEN: First off, thank you for taking the time with me and answering a few questions. Could you tell us a little about yourself for our readers out there? ch’Ranni: Hello! I’m Josh and
  4. EN ROUTE TO PAR’THA EXPANSE — The USS Chin’toka (NCC-97187) departed from Earth Spacedock two weeks ago on what would be her first shakedown cruise. Now under the command of Capt. Mei’konda Delano, the atmosphere was rather mixed as the ship departed the station. While the crew was excited to be back in space and on such a great ship, there were some melancholy feelings at the absence of their former Commanding Officer, Capt. Jarred Thoran, who passed away rather suddenly at their commissioning party. The cause of his death remains under investigation. Mei’konda has a rather impressive reco

  6. We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border. This month’s interview is with the writer behind Lieutenant Jacob Horne playing a Human male Engineering Officer assigned to the USS Constitution. GALVEN: Thank you for allowing me to interview you! Could you tell us a little about yourself fo
  7. UTOPIA PLANITIA FLEET YARDS, MARS — Following resolving the Breen led pirate raids within the Aavaro Wilds, the ship’s designers recalled the USS Juneau (NX-99801) to Mars, to see how the prototype handled under the pressures of its more strenuous full-time workload. While the ship underwent repairs and testing, the crew received leave to allow themselves to relax and recuperate. Several members both joined and departed the crew once it docked at Utopia Planitia. The crew relished the time, relaxed from their duties to enjoy and explore their surroundings. Part of the crew headed out, while o
  8. TYRELLIAN SECTOR — The triathlon of the year in the Tyrellian Sector is off to a smashing start for the USS Gorkon (NCC-82293) and the entire sector buzzing with excitement about it. Held on the remote world of Denak IX, the Class-K moon of the planet Tyrellia, hosts some of the best open stretches of land to accommodate the triathlon’s three competitive legs. Teams have descended from the USS Gorkon (NCC-82293) and the USS Triumphant (NCC-75692), and multiple squads from the sector compete for the challenge title. When designing the opening for the competition, Castinus Commia, Tyrellian ex
  9. ENDAASI — Having survived the series of quakes which mysteriously struck the planet of Endaasi, the three groups of crew members of the USS Constitution (NCC 9012-B) found themselves in different trying circumstances to overcome. The first group, led by none other than Commodore Jalana Rajel, hiked along the ‘Walker Path’ of the Tat’si Mountain range, to learn about the legend of the Wild Walker. Shortly after the quakes ended, the group discovered something had blocked their route back to their starting point, and all other efforts to find their way back were in vain. The group soon learned
  10. Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in October. This first graph depicts the number of applications that the fleet has received each month this year. The month of October saw ten new applications which is a significant jump from what we saw in the previous month. The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application: This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of October. Th

  13. WUAGYL SECTOR — The USS Veritas (NCC-95035) is investigating the missing SS Duncan Dunbar’s distress signal now coming from a habitable asteroid. The Starfleet crew picked up the distress signal while diverting course from Donova IV for a look at a protostar nebula. While there, they picked up a mysterious distress call from a cargo vessel, the SS Duncan Dunbar. “We were hoping to *ease* our way back into the fold after our last mission,” notes Ensign Seeker Macedon. “I guess it’s a nice change, though. We’ve gone from playing hide and seek with the Tholians to maybe performing a good old-fa

Your ship, the Nebula class USS Æthelwulf, has responded to a distress signal, only to discover it was a trap set by pirates, who ambushed your ship at close range. While you destroyed three and drove off the four, your comm officer has picked up signal traffic indicating reinforcements will be there shorter than the relief delegation Starfleet has sent. Meanwhile, your ship is heavily damaged, and your warp drive cannot form a

  17. NEW BAJOR, GAMMA QUADRANT — After a nearly fatal assassination attempt on their CO and a narrow escape from a massive explosion, the USS Thor (NCC-82607) is licking its wounds and weighing its options as the situation on New Bajor continues to deteriorate. Originally tasked to deliver agricultural supplies to the colony, the Thor has become embroiled in a complex race against time to stop a massive ecological catastrophe. “We thought they just needed some supplies,” a clearly disturbed Peri Katsim went on record to say, shaking her head in frustration. “Instead, the land is sick, and it’s al

  19. THETA 122, THE ALPHA ISLES — Newly installed Alpha Quadrant patrol ship USS Arrow (NCC-69829) recently hosted to several Alpha Quadrant leaders while conducting operations on nearby Theta 122. Hoping to restore sector space to a more stable climate, Federation officials, led by Commander Randal Shayne, hosted captains and dignitaries from the amassed refugee ships that had recently arrived at Atlas Base. All in the effort to discuss a longer-lasting armistice for the region and establish lasting trade and diplomatic channels between the disparate ships and races. As a further gesture of goo
  20. Whether you are looking for a way to better define your player character’s backstory, thinking about creating a new NPC or playing a mission related character one critical thing to think about it what prompted this character to take action? In some role-playing systems this is called a “kicker” which is short for the thing that kicks your character into action. The kicker is an event or realization a character has just before a story begins. This functions as a catalyst that propel characters into taking action, whether that is action for the cause of the mission to to antagonize the missio
  21. ​ With a laundry list of accusations, enemies, nicknamed “The God of Lies”, Guinan doing the cat claws, described as “obnoxious”, “interfering”, a “pest”, and Picard’s glowing character reference of “devious and amoral and unreliable and irresponsible and… definitely not to be trusted,” how could we not cover the most wonderful, the sublime, and the irresistible charms of Q? As a powerful, almighty, and divine-like entity from a race of [...]-celestial beings known collectively as the Q, Commanding Officers of starships were briefed on the existence of this super influential race. Q would us
  22. Join us for another in a series of interviews with winners of Duty Post awards from our recent 2020 Awards Ceremony. Our goal is to give you insight into how our fleet’s best simmers write, and imagine their characters. This month we’re interviewing the writer behind Lieutenant Corliss Fortune playing a Betazoid female counselor assigned to the USS Gorkon. She won the Order of the Valiant Heart: “This award is given to those ship’s Counselor who have shown great skill in protecting the mental health of their crewmates, clearly demonstrating superior ability to care, assist, and comfort those
  23. October 2020 saw an increase in the number of posts to the fleet – reaching 1,866 total sims and an average of 207 sims per vessel. Ops led the fleet with 344 sims in October, with the Chin’toka following at 279, the Gorkon at 261 and the Juneau at 191.

  25. Now that we’ve all exhausted ourselves on the candy we didn’t get to hand out last night because there were so few trick-or-treaters, all that’s left to do is announce who won this year’s Halloween Avatar Contest! Just to reiterate how this works: We have one judge from each ship in the fleet review all the entrants, and rank each ship against the others on two metrics: Originality and Design. We add those two scores together and then multiply it by the crew’s participation in the contest – ships with fewer participants are marked down a certain percentage for each player who doesn’t partici
