  1. 61 CYGNI SYSTEM — Following up on reported sightings of the space-borne organism known as ‘Gomtuu’, the USS Thor (NCC-82607) received an intermittent distress call originating from the USS Excalibur, a Cardenas class ship thought lost during the height of the Klingon/Federation war of the 2260s. Marine Captain Wes Greaves led the away team which surveyed the intact wreckage, discovering numerous surprises. “It’s strange being on a wreck like the Excalibur,” Greaves offered several insights on the vessel itself. “She’s a federation starship through and through. The hull’s intact. Conduits and
  2. The promotion to the rank of captain is a momentous occasion in our community – the result of years of writing, mentoring, and learning the ropes. This multi-step process starts with nomination from two members of the fleet at or above the rank of Commander, an initial vote from the Executive Council followed by a written exam, a practical exam, an interview with the Executive Council, and a final vote from the Executive Council. Candidates must show that they have mastery of the art of leadership, a strong knowledge of Star Trek, the ability to teach, and great simming skills. Shayne is our f
  3. 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 JG R’Ariel playing a Female Caitian and Deltan Hybrid Counselor assigned to the USS Arrow. DeVeau: Would you be willing to share anything about you, the writer, behind R’Ariel? R’Arie

  6. April 2021 saw a decrease in the overall number of sims, and a corresponding decrease in the average number of sims per ship. The total number of sims for the month was 1,542, averaging 171 per ship. The Chin’toka led the fleet with 241 sims for the month, followed by the Resolution and the Thor – each with 207. Following the upper three was the Arrow with 177, the Gorkon with 168, and Ops with 154. Following Ops was the Veritas with 139, the Juneau with 133, and the Constitution with 116.

  9. Our 2022 Writing Challenge is active and taking submissions! For this year, the prompt calls to mind themes of the little things which can affect characters in those huge ways. Maybe your character will venture on a voyage on discovery about themselves, or explore themes of finality and endings, retribution and redemption, even a bit of mortality thrown in? Star Trek has consistently shown us these small, focused moments can be at the very heart of the human (and alien!) experience. “I always loved the wind… until that mission on Telstrus 3.” How would your character react to this situatio

  12. Our community and game are 100% member funded, and we’ve been very thankful to have a growing cohort of recurring and first-time donors who are helping us meet our growing costs every year. In 2020 and 2021, some very generous donors even donated so much we were able to end our monthly donation appeals and complete the drive before they even started! Many thanks to those who contributed to get us here, and we’ll be doing another post in a few weeks with a full recounting of their names. We’ve now flipped over to our 2022 fiscal year, and need to set our sites on our May 2022 donation drive d

  15. VULCAN — Within days of the ship’s arrival, authorities reported a disturbance and theft at the venerable ShiKahr Museum of Political History. “It was certainly a shock!” Ensign Kellan Glass, recently assigned to the Thor, was on scene and spoke vigorously in defence of their shipmate. “I graduated with Anton (Ensign Anton Richards) and I share quarters with him on the Thor so I should know him pretty well.” What should have been a reserved and sedate period of leave for the Thor has been marked with near-constant shenanigans from officers old and new alike.

  21. ELADAR IV — While on a First Contact mission to Eladar IV, the crew of the USS Chin’toka stopped an invasion by Caraadian forces, leading to talks between the planet’s two leading species. The crew of the USS Chin’toka (NCC-97187) is now on its way back to Deep Space 26 after an exciting conclusion to their First Contact mission. As previously reported, the ship’s crew detected what seemed to be a test flight of a warp-capable vessel, leading the ship’s Acting Captain, LtCmdr. Serala to investigate and subsequently initiate a First Contact with the inhabitants of Eladar IV. The First Contac
