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?

Will the Zynd’ra’s crew be recovered?

Can the Glurone be subdued?

Current Open Positions:
--Chief Science Officer
--Chief Tactical Officer
--Chief of Security
--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!

Another day, another glitch in the system. Typically Cipher reserved himself only for software-related mishaps, but when there was absolutely nothing else to do, he would assist the engineers on their work orders. The only other alternative was to subject himself to Logarithm's incessant prattle.

Today, it seemed that 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,…

***Sickbay***

Maggie hurried into Sick Bay and shucked the jacket of her dress uniform. She didn't have a chance to say anything before Leser was pelting her with questions.

“What happened to the dinner?” he asked. “Why the red alert? What happened?”

“One question at a time, Terry,” Maggie replied.…

For the number of people who would be in attendance, the Observation Lounge was too big. As a result, partitions had been set up to create a smaller dining space.

"Are you ready for this, Artie?" Trenna asked as the two command officers surveyed the room. As was fitting for…
