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. “

FSF Welcomes FSF Falk as its Executive Officer

The FSF Welcomes FSF Falk as its executive Officer. FSF Merlin interviewed him and here is the transcript of that interview.

FM What drew you into simming and in what year?

FF Originally, I got into simming in 1996, on the now-defunct Star Wars Sim Group on AOL. I first learned about it when I think I was doing searches for Star Wars stuff on AOL, and stumbled across it. I then joined a group called FSG later that same year. I took a break during college, I think I stopped simming for about 4 years out of the 5 so I could concentrate on my 2 degrees. I resumed simming after graduating and moving to my first job location, and found FSF in 2004, and the rest is history up to this point.

USS Stargazer (SFOL) – Summary of The Month August 2013

The Stargazer, under the new command of Captain Rock and Commander Sayre, left earth and made their way to the Valo colonies near the Cardassian border in hopes of tracking down patient zero of the GMD outbreak.

Conditions were bleak at the colonies, and the first visit to Valo 1 proved a dead end. However, a quick trip to the second colony, Valo 2 proved to be more fruitful. Upon the teams arrival, they found conditions just as bad as at the previous colony, but a leader emerged and began telling the team of the time at the start of the outbreak.

According to the leader, Cardassian ship traffic had been very heavy through the sector months before the outbreak and had suddenly stopped a few days before the first few people fell ill. She then reported that the hospital building, where some of the sick and dying were located, was heavily damaged in riots during the height of the illness and was in desperate need of repair to continue functioning. Engineering teams are then sent down to assess the situation at the hospital, while the AT makes their way there on foot.

Once at the clinic, the leader gives the team access to medical files, in hopes of tracking down the source of the infection. As they move through the decrepit building below, back in orbit, a team of three Cardassian Warships suddenly enter the sector.

The ships seemed surprised to see the Stargazer in orbit, state that they are here to provide aid and then quickly turn around and leave. Minutes later, swarms of attackers, dress in full HAZMAT suits storm the hospital, blowing up charges, which trap the engineers in the generator room, and start shooting anything that moves. In the attack, the ‘Gazers assistant security officer, Gaius Kii, is killed.

The AT manages to repel the attack and rescue their engineers. Upon investigation, they find evidence that it was a Cardassian strike force, that was sent ahead to “clean up” the colonies for Cardassian settlement. Another Bajoran leader makes it from another part of the planet and tells the AT that a Cardassian doctor known for committing horrific atrocities in the name of science, Dr. Crell Moset, had been at the colonies weeks before the outbreak and had headed on to the Nehru colony.
