New Simulation – Star Trek: Onimaru

We are glad to announce the newest addition to the Simming.net family. The Star Trek: Onimaru simulation is hosted by FSF Selkie and FSF Obrian, two new hosts who have started the simulation in August 2015, they sim every Monday at 10PM on AIM – give them a visit and a warm welcome!

The simulation’s website can be found here.

2378, it’s been only a few short years since the Dominion War ended and the reconstruction of the quadrant has fallen short due to the unforeseen rebellion of the Klingon Empire against the Federation. This civil war that represses a unified stronghold within the Federation hinders our progress. 

More so the alliances we struggle to hold on to and the new enemies made make the everyday life we used to know, more interesting. The future is not written in text yet, as we may have a chance to make it better. The Onimaru will be at the forefront of dealing with offensive and defensive tactics against all outside force. But could there be an internal threat? A strong sense of character play is needed here and a story that is built on entertaining strategy, join in and see what future you can help shape for tomorrow. “

USS Independence Celebrates 10 Years

The USS Independence (originally formed as the USS Cartier) will be celebrating 10 years in the FSF at the end of June, so they’re throwing a little party with a special 2 hour sim on Sunday, June 28th from 8:00 – 10:00PM EST. The first hour will feature stories and a little trivia, and the second hour will feature a climactic end to Indy’s current plot. Former Indy crew members are encouraged to attend, but all are welcome!

Summary Winner February 2015 – USS Stargazer (SFOL)

Chapter I. Loomings

The crew of the USS Stargazer returned to space dock only to receive word from Starfleet Command that a massive front was being developed and war had once again settled upon the Alpha Quadrant.

The Romulan Empire broke the ceasefire agreement with the Federation and moved ships into Federation space along the Federation side of the neutral zone. Several Star Bases and depots that had been liberated in the first wave of attacks a year previously were once again seized by the Romulans.

The crew were called back to the front. The Federation once again sent a fleet to neutralize the threat. Recently promoted Captain Montgomery Sayre wanted to stay away from the fight and every night since the war had ended he remembered the cries from the battles that had been fought. He remembered his near death experience, and he remembered what it was like seeing many of the brightest and youngest of Federation personal fall at the hands of an enemy so cruel and vengeful that death was of little consequence.

So the Stargazer went back to the front and her crew feared the outcome. When they arrived, they took up shop behind a moon and along with a few other vessels, including the USS Caduceus, the Stargazer became a supply and support vessel. And the battle began.

Little did the Federation know that between the fighting and ceasefire the Romulan Empire had created a much stronger and improved torpedo, capable of crippling a ship in two hits, and destroying a vessel in three. The battle proved to be crippling for the Federation forces. Ship after ship fell victim to the new weapon. Shortly before its destruction, the Stargazer was able to save the crew of the USS Enterprise. For the Caduceus, things weren’t as lucky. The Hermes was destroyed and the Caduceus was left with systems critical and a Captain shot by Romulans during boarding.

Congratulation to the January 2015 Community winners

Summary Award (From December 2014) Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the summary:
The Asari team digs into the stations computer system, attempting to send a message. “We’ve found more than we expected, we’ll need a bigger ship!” that’s the good news. The encrypted transmission also contains the bad news, “The station is crawling with Cerberus troops” so much for being abandoned. The team manages to bring the internal sensors on-line to track the Cerberus troops, and discover that there are only about 20 on board… and 6 of them are heading right towards the other half of their team.
