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. “

July 2014 Community Awards

Congratulations to the following winners of the July 2014 Community Awards!

Sim of the Month (for August 2014): None
Community Award: Stargate: SG-10
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award (for June 2014): USS Firewall

Excerpt from the Summary:

The screams died out as the crewman died. “What was that?” they wanted to know, but nobody had the answer. It was large, it was hairy, and it had a taste for man flesh. That much was clear, and that was also about all they knew. All the answers seemed to lie in the cargo bay, where the ship had 3 mysterious containers scheduled for delivery to an unknown party. Convinced all the answers they seek are in the cargo bay, the Colonel orders the team down there. Part of him believed he was ordering them to their deaths, but it was where they had to go. The ship on the other hand continued its game of cat and mouse… a game made more difficult by the fact that both ships had stealth tech.

June 2014 Community Awards

(Belated) Congratulations to the following winners of the June 2014 Community Awards!

Sim of the Month (for July 2014): Stargate Command
Community Award: Stargate: SG-10
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award (for May 2014): Stargate: SG-10

Excerpt from the Summary:

The team from SG-10, along with a few other SGC teams, were sent to the Alpha site for some training on what would happen if the Alpha Site came under attack. When they arrived, they began setting up, and commenced the simulated attack. However, while the attack was occurring, a real Lucian Alliance attack commenced in the middle of it. This lead to massive casualties, including to Allyson Dutcher. However, Adrian was able to abscond with an Al’Kesh, and put Allyson into the sarcophagus located on the vessel. He also managed to pick up Maddie Chapman, who had been taken prisoner by the Lucian Alliance. However, all of this was for naught, as they were captured by the orbiting H’tak. The rest of the SG teams and the Alpha Site scientists evacuated back to Earth to regroup.

Once back on Earth, the SGC learned of the location of the Lucian Alliance planet, and sent a small scout team through, consisting of Hartman, Ochi, Williams, and a few members from SG-3. They managed to steal a small Tel’tak, and ascended from the planet, heading for the Ha’tak in orbit. Meanwhile, Adrian and Maddie were being questioned, and Adrian managed to break free. Dutcher was left in the sarcophagus, and unbeknownst to the Lucian Alliance, had been fully healed, and went out, searching for the armory, to break out her team mates.

At about the same time Adrian managed to break free, he locked down the Ha’tak, and the room he was in, and began messing with the systems of the large vessel. Maddie was still captured by the Lucian Alliance General, and he sent his people to try to recover Adrian. This was fruitless, and eventually, Maddie managed to free herself, and found Dutcher with a large amount of weapons, who was blasting her way to find the other two.

Hartman and crew managed to land on the vessel, and began a search for the 3 people as well. They systematically went through the vessel, and Ochi rigged the ship to blow. Eventually, Snarf came face to face with the General, and proceeded to shoot him, killing him, thus creating a major setback to the Lucian Alliance. The team made it off the vessel, and it exploded in orbit above the planet.
