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

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!

Allison looked around the cave. She could barely make out the other members of the survey team; there was very little light in the space. Next to her, Lieutenant Commander Renyo Ishi, the team's leader, was laying on the ground covered with a metallic blanket. Ishi's head wound was sloppily…

The Altai was still docked at Starbase 221, so Trenna was playing it a bit loose with her time. Since her conversation with Artie several days earlier, she'd gotten back into going to the gym. On this day, she'd gone on a 5 kilometer run before going through a weight…

“What the hell is going on?” Latanun called out as he pulled himself back to his feet.

The Tonawanda had just violently jerked hard to port, tossing everyone on the Bridge to the deck. The lights had gone out; the command center now glowed from the dim emergency lighting.

It was strange walking through the corridors of the ship when so much of the crew wasn't on board. Normally at this time of the day, the corridors would be bustling with people. Instead, she'd made it from her quarters to Engineering having only seen three other people.

Entering the…
