Welcome to the USS Altai!

USS Altai

The Federation has enjoyed relative prosperity since the Dominion War ended more than a decade ago. Starfleet has largely been rebuilt to pre-war levels. Science and exploration have once again become the primary missions of Starfleet. Though there have been some skirmishes of late, the Federation has remained dedicated to its peaceful mission. Diplomatic efforts have proven successful in reigning in would-be military conflicts.

The current mission is to survey a recently discovered pulsar. While conducting scans of the pulsar, sensor interference was noticed, leading to an investigation. A team took a runabout to the far side of the pulsar and were able to use a resonance pulse and uncovered a hidden ship of an unknown design. The Altai contacted the ship, Zynd’ra, and invited the crew to dinner. During the meal, the Altai was boarded and the Zynd’ra’s crew was kidnapped.

Altai has taken fire from a cloaked vessel, which has made fighting back difficult. But the Altai’s crew does their best to retrieve the kidnapped Qlo’ka. When the Glurone ship decloaks, it’s size is intimidating.

How do the Qlo’ka and Glurone know each other?

Does the Federation have a new Gamma Quadrant ally in the Qlo'ka? And perhaps a new enemy in the Glurone?

Join the Altai to help maintain a peaceful Federation and further the exploration of the Gamma Quadrant. We’ve met two new species this mission and the quadrant is full of more opportunities. So much to discover in the Gamma Quadrant!

Current Open Positions:
--Chief Science Officer
--Chief Tactical Officer
--Chief of Security
--Chief Medical Officer
--Chief Flight Control Officer
--Assistant Chiefs in Most Departments
--Junior Officers and Enlisted Welcome and Encouraged!

Posted on Wed Nov 21st, 2018 @ 12:08am by Captain Osegan Trenna in Sim Announcement

I am happy to announce that the USS Altai has been selected as Task Force 9 Sim of the Month for October 2018. Not only have we earned this fine honor, but we were unanimously nominated. For those unaware, COs submit monthly reports to their TF command staff. One of the items in the report is to nominate a sim in the TF for Sim of the Month.

As per the FNS press release:

"The Altai has the unique honour of having been nominated unanimously and the nominations are well deserved. The current mission has seen both high character development and one of the best implementations of a first contact scenario I have ever seen. The wealth of new lore will enrich Task Force 9 for years to come and further serves to enrich the rather limited show-canon regarding non-Dominion Gamma Quadrant powers and species."

(The Federation News Service article can be seen here.)

I want to thank all of you for your part in the sim being honored. I've been very impressed with this sim and I hope you're having a good time writing here.

Congratulations, everyone!

It was all Trenna could muster at first. Like many of her Federation Standard curse words, she'd learned it once she'd joined Starfleet. Humans had a way with swearing; it was second nature to them. Maybe it was the religious nature of most Bajorans, but such language wasn't as…

"Status report!" Trenna called out as she stepped back onto the Bridge. "What are the Glurone doing?"

"Their weapons are active, but they don't seem interested in using them," Itajime offered from Tactical. With the recent loss of Dedeker, the Staff Warrant Officer was the most experienced, most qualified tactical…

The last of her physicals was about to arrive and Maggie breathed a sigh of relief. After this, she could go back to her quarters and be anti-social with her cat. Even though she liked people, she also liked being alone. Usually, by the end of the day, she just…

Arriving at Engineering, Trenna walked into the room and looked around for Talbot. Though they'd only known each other a short time, a matter of days in fact, there was a sense of familiarity that she didn't typically feel. Certainly not with someone she didn't have an established relationship with.…

Trenna walked onto the Bridge. She looked towards the Operations station where a junior Lieutenant she didn't know was working. "Lieutenant, signal the crew to prepare for departure."

With all of the relief supplies loaded, thanks to Ensign Catangay, and seemingly the last of her crew onboard, the Altai was…
