New Sim: USS Challenger

The FSF would like to welcome the USS Challenger. It was recently admitted into the FSF after a Fleet Command vote.

The USS Challenger NCC-71099-B, a newly constructed Intrepid-class starship is about to begin it”s first mission.

With a new ship, and a not so new crew, the Challenger will be setting out of the Pendragon Shipyards, and making it”s way towards the uncharted territory between the Alpha and Delta quadrants. Her mission….

“To seek out new life, and new civilizations. To boldy go where no one has gone before.”

The USS Challenger is run by FSF Bawls and FSF Immortal. This game plays on Monday evenings. For more information, please check out their website.

New Sim: USS Republic (TOS-Era)

“Space… the final frontier.”

Those were the words at the opening of the show that started it all. Now, go back to the era where legends were made. Where men like James Kirk, Spock and Doctor McCoy were born, and became some of the greatest Starfleet officers to set foot in the Federation. Go back to the final frontier. Go back… to where it all began.

Welcome on board the USS Republic, a Constitution-class starship first launched in 2253. The Republic – formerly home to young Ensign James T. Kirk – after 15 years of service, has been refitted and recrewed, and is ready for relaunch.

The year is now 2369. Now under the command of Captain Benjamin Wolf, the Republic has been ordered to proceed to Sector 227-J, an area of space in between the Klingons, Tholians and Gorn. Once home to the now-disbanded Halkonian Alliance, the sector is now in dispute, as each power wants control of it. And the few remaining Halkonians have requested the Federation”s presence to keep them out.

What new dangers will the crew of the Republic find there? Can they keep the Klingons, Tholians and Gorn at bay? Join us every Monday at 9:00pm EST, and find out!

The Commander”s Table – Issue 10 Released

Welcome to the Commander”s Table. This is a place for a FSF Hosts to tell their stories. The Commander”s Table spans all time and space and you never know where you may find it or who may be there. The bartender, Cap, makes sure that only Commanders enter and, somehow, always knows exactly what you want to drink before you even realize it yourself. The bar appears differently to people, drawing from whom and what they are to make a place that is most comfortable to them.

To Klingons it would be just like a place found deep in the cities of the homeworld with weapons abounding on the walls. To the Irishman, it would be an old fashioned Irish bar. Each person sees and experiences exactly what they need to allow them to tell their tales.

There is no monetary exchange here. All drinks, no matter how many you have are all paid for in the form of a story. It doesn”t, necessarily, have to be a story of Command, just a story that means something and, hopefully, all can learn from it.

In this issue, the storyteller is FSF Esrom.

Shore Leave a Success!


Truce           Storm           Margo           Falk
Our delegation arrived at Shore Leave Friday, expecting a fun-filled weekend of meet & greets, dinners, movies, celebrities and more more. All was accomplished.

For more details on their weekend events, check out their convention blogs.

FSF Storm – “He went on to tell me about the Martin St Onge Award, what it was given for etc then said that this years recipient was FSF Storm. I swear I almost cried. It was the best start to an awesome weekend.”

FSF Truce – “Shore Leave was awesome, there is no other adjective that can do justice. As I sit here at work, I am still recovering. And I am already thinking about next year!”

FSF Falk – “The dance was quite fun, after Truce, Margo, and myself heckled the costume contest participants. Only problem was the heckling was fun for so long, then the entire process just got boring. If you”re going to do a skit, REHEARSE IT!”

FSF Margo – “So it”s at the end of the dinner and people started crowding around me…and I start getting suspicious. About that time, the wait staff comes out with a birthday ice cream and candle…singing happy birthday to me. I of course didn”t even know it was my birthday…and to make it worse, I got no presents.”
