'To all mankind -- may we never find space so vast, planets so cold, heart and mind so empty that we cannot fill them with love and warmth.'

Welcome aboard the SS Mary Rose, a pastiche of a ship hailing from an era bygone, past checkered and historically dubious. In all rights, she should have been moored in a museum, stripped of her warp core, drained of her chattels and propped onto a pole, a lifeless husk on display. Yet the SS Mary Rose has a tireless manner of slipping through the tight noose of fate.

This simulation is based on the dark side of Star Trek, people living on the very edges of the Federation. We are a simulation focusing on player involvement and quality writing, and the admin team makes a special effort to build an inclusive and welcoming community that appreciates diversity.

We are a multi award winning simm based in the Task Force 13 of Obsidian Fleet.

The SS Mary Rose is a 18+ and 2/2/2 simming community. We are LGBTQ+ friendly community.

» Mission 18 - Shackles

Posted on Wed May 8th, 2024 @ 12:46pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi All

As you all know our current mission is very much at the ending point.

Mission 18 - Shackles

Making a supply pick-up from a Fenris Rangers cache on a remote planet, the SS Mary Rose discovers a crashed Orion slaver ship on the surface. Alarmingly, it appears the survivors of the crash were an assortment of alien races abducted from various pre-warp worlds across the fringes of known space. These survivors have built a settlement for themselves out of the crashed ship, though with virtually no understanding of advanced technology or warp travel, they remain trapped on the planet with no way home.

Now, however, this surviving settlement has discovered the Rangers’ cache of supplies and weapons and taken them for themselves, presenting the crew with a problem; the supplies are needed elsewhere, but how should they approach these settlers, who have a natural distrust of outsiders?

Some of the Rosie crew are wary of the Prime Directive, despite not being in Starfleet’s mandate. Yet the more pragmatic would suggest the supplies belong to the Rangers and are needed elsewhere…

I want to properly get this mission on its way now as it gives us so many amazing opportunities to get those muses thriving again and offering varied plots four months after the grotto incident. We have prepared a mission guide .

This is the mission planner where you can sign up for plots or create your own.

Anyone who wants to discuss a plot or has an idea please grab me and we can discuss.

This mission will kick off officially as soon as we finish with a couple of big posts.


» New Player - Terrence Rumm

Posted on Fri Oct 13th, 2023 @ 1:24pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Afternoon Everyone

I would like to introduce you to our new player Josh, who will be playing Terrence Rumm. They will be becoming our chief of the boat. In his own words, he is an experienced veteran who can keep an eye on the morale and welfare of the crew at large, support with training and onboarding of new crew members, and be a jack of all trades type who can provide a little expertise and enhance coordination between different departments.

I would like to ask while he settles in you offer lots of jp's and make him feel welcome on Rosie. I am sure they would appreciate a prod on Discord to offer said joint posts before we get lost in space.


» Hysperia Awards and Achievements

Posted on Fri Oct 6th, 2023 @ 12:12pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi All

I finally got around to doing the awards and achievements for Hysperia.

Congratulations all

Please do not forget you can vote at any point.

Crew's Choice Award for Hysperia

Evelyn Reynolds
“The Oliver/Evelyn dynamic has shifted dramatically this mission, and I have to give kudos to Serahni for enabling and driving much of that. I'm excited to see where it leads! She deserves a lot of recognition for helping juggle a lot of little arcs this run around, and I'm personally grateful for the added creativity.”

Leiddem Kea
“The award is for Becca, of course, and her legion of delectable characters but Leiddem is my boy and I have thoroughly enjoyed every post written with him this mission. (I have, of course, enjoyed all the posts written with Becca. There have been many.) To the lady that keeps us going, somehow, and puts up with our shenanigans. You deserve more than an award. Possibly a stiff drink.”

Oliver Lucas
I'm nominating Paul specifically for his portrayal of Oliver during this mission. It's been highly enjoyable to see the character emerge from Sickbay and start to show facets of his experience and trauma. Paul always paces his exposition well so I feel like this is just the tip of the iceberg and I look forward to learning more about this character in future missions.

Non-Player Character Award

Rueben Gregnol
“I may be bias because I have claimed all of them. (Nearly.) Always much love and admiration for Becca's imaginative breadth and willingness to occupy multiple headspaces at once. Never a dull moment, always something to write, always new adventures to plot.”

Delaney O'Callaghan

“Okay, the character is Tomas, but the writer's PC is Delaney. Tomas was fantastic - perfect for the world and sprung near fully formed right from the start.”

Library Excellence Ribbon

Liha t'Ehhelih
“Beya was Queen, Burnie rode a dragon AND got accidentally married, and Liha didn't kill Curtis. I always enjoy reading Cam's characterisations and was particularly fond of her characters' interactions with a certain kissing-booth proprietor this mission. (Plus, we got arrested together. I think they've probably forgotten about that.) Strong, well-rounded characters with distinctive voices, Cam's writing always leaps off the screen. Good stuff.”
