Welcome to the 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!

The USS Altai is an award-winning Nova based sim, with the rating of 16+. We are part of Bravo Fleet's Task Force 9.

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!

“Batchelder to Altai: lock on to the tags and start transporting. We’re a person down and I am sick of this shit. Get us the hell out of here!”

Trenna jumped up from her chair. "Lieutenant!" she called out.

"Keep a lock on the away team," she ordered Hessen. "The second they have trouble, I want them back here."

"Yes, Captain," Evaad replied simply. He put the transporter lock readout just to the side of his main console. Additional sensor readouts showed the status of the Glurone ship. He…

“So the most important thing is going to be for us to do this quickly, and efficiently,” Jon said to the two security NCOs he’d tapped to bring with him. “Additionally, we don’t have great internal scans of the ship, and I haven’t been on an extraction mission since The…

The ship on the viewscreen was big. Whereas the Qlo'ka ship was about the same size as Altai, the Glurone ship was more than twice, maybe even three times, as big.

It sat there, silently, on the screen. Trenna didn't know if the ship was visible now because of the…

"Fire."

Having given the order, Trenna's eyes remained locked on the viewscreen to see the results.

The antimatter spread illuminated the area around the two ships spectacularly. She awaited an update from her crew about the success of their effort.

Before they could speak up, the viewscreen lit up again,…
