Good posts everyone! I love seeing how this mission is playing out. As always I'm here for JP's. Also I'm not sure story line wise how many actually know Mystery is now the captain. Ya'll are good!

As you've all seen I've been promoted to Captain. It was quite a surprise to me. I know I can never fill our former captain's shoes but I will do my best. I'll do a post getting the promotion.

It's been a pleasure leading this great crew, but it's time for me to step aside. Mystery is hereby promoted to Captain and is the new CO.

Good luck and continue the great simming. Now back to the Romulan Ale for me....

» Marine Detachment?

Posted on Tue Feb 25th, 2020 @ 4:30am by Lieutenant JG Kevin Lance in General News

I have a question about the Marine Detachment positions.

In the 21st Century U.S. Navy, Marine Detachments are the primary security force on larger ship. Think about Checkov being chased through the carrier Enterprise in Star Trek IV.

The Independence has both a Security Division and a Marine Detachment. Is the Marine Detachment responsible for ship board security? Or are they for off-ship force projection?

Mission: Ghost Station
Posted on Thu May 28th, 2020 @ 6:07pm by Lieutenant JG Kevin Lance

Through liberal application of phaser fire, Kevin and his Marines were able to clear main engineering but there was no sign of Lieutenant Covitchka’s team. The computer feed showed that CO2 concentrations were steadily increasing outside. Kevin knew that this meant that his team would need to clear a path…

As Feyd and Natasha waited for the cure to replicate, the doctor spent some time going over the genome of the cure one more time. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you looked at it, he noticed an anomaly.

Natasha squinted at him, reading the expression on his face…

Jamie decided to sit for a few moments to gather his thoughts before he went to see the Captain. After a few minutes he realized that weird smell was actually coming from him, so he quickly showered and put on a clean fresh uniform. Now he was ready to…

Of all the stupid, bullshit moves. I have been restricted from accessing airlocks, the shuttlebay and using the transporter. This is an injustice and I won't stand for it. Since when did defending oneself carry this kind of sentence? Why don't they just restrict me from the fucking replicators while…

Personal Log:

Lieutenant Commander Ellis assigned me to lead the away team to investigate the disappearance of every sentient (and non-sentient) aboard Starbase 945 and the two starships, USS West Wind and USS Mitzi. Why she would send me away from my post during such uncertainty is worrying. As Chief…
