USS Copernicus - NCC 84130
Nova Class Scientific and Exploration Vessel

To protect Starfleets interests in this time of uncertainty, Starfleet has re-assigned the USS Copernicus to investigate Federation space along the Romulan Border, in order to unearth hidden mysteries from ancient civilizations. Meanwhile, Starfleet still seeks to maintain the peace within her borders, and continue to seek out new life and new civilisations, going boldly where no man has gone before and to this end the USS Copernicus, a Nova Class survey vessel under the Command of Keiben Haistro has been tasked with continuing Starfleet's scientific efforts in this area.
She is a small craft with no more than eighty officers and crew working and living together. Resources are tight on a ship this small but the crew will continue to put Starfleet's best foot forward.
We are a community of Star Trek enthusiast forging our own way through the rich tapestry created by Gene Rodenberry. We are a friendly group always looking to expand out family.

Well it was short, it was sweet but it was amazing. Thank you all for the writing that has happened during our prologue mission. Full mission metrics are at the bottom of this new article. We are now officially into our first main line mission. Do not hesitate to contact me, Lieutenant Holt or Doctor D'BrooNi if you need any guidance with our next mission which went live yesterday - "Echoes Of An Empire".

In this new mission we will tackle the sensor data gathered by the USS Merlin in the brief encounter she had with our original attacker. The Admiral will help set us on our course into what I hope will become an engaging series of missions and opportunities to really develop our characters. It will also pit us against the two main enemies that we will face on our simm. Now these said big bad's are still a work in progress so if anyone has any thoughts about them drop a message into the discord channel 'Strategic Operations'. Everyone should have their own input on the creative process on this group of highly talented writers that I look forward to working with on this little ship.

Firstly I need to apologise, I should have announced this when his character was actually accepted onto the simm!!!!

That said, I would like to (belatedly) welcome Ensign Junjie Han Mr. on board as our new Chief Science Officer. Things are starting to move forward now and we are just about ready to kick our first full mission off. Once the current few prologue posts are up then we can make a real start. That said, if anyone wishes to start some character development posts you can.

Things to remember with this new mission:
-It is starting a couple weeks after the prologue so Copernicus is repaired.
-Some crew, such as our Chief Science Officer will be new to the ship completely
-Chief Stoun and Ensign Verona still need the formal offer of a post on Copernicus

And those few points are just to start with.

Lets write people. X

Posted on Sun Nov 8th, 2020 @ 1:52pm by Captain Keiben Haistro in General News

The site is up and running and we are accepting applications even thought we are not officially active. We need to complete the site and begin to recruit writers to help us realise this sims full potential.

Key positions that need to be filled are First Officer, Chief Science Officer, Chief Operations Officer and Chief Engineer. Every writer will be expected to complete the application in full including a sample post. For Senior Officer positions a high quality of application and sample post will be needed to be considered.

All writers will have input into the story's we tell and character development is the primary focus of this simulation. There will be missions that we have to achieve but the emphasis is on the characters.
