Our Future is vast...

'Mankind has grown mighty and just on the shoulders of its ancestor's sins. Yet among the hoards of the enlightened, there are still those few men who succumb to the temptations of our past. While the application of Zefram Cochrane’s brilliance has been put to use, pushing our species virtues ever more into the greatness of space; these few have hidden in the wake of expansion, escaping their guilt, misconduct and reputations not only across borders but across planets.'

Welcome aboard the SS Mary Rose, a pastiche of a ship hailing from an era bygone, past checkered and history 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 focus on quality writing and not quantity like so many simulations out there allowing the story to grow in our own way, letting characters and our community develop.

We are a multi award winning simm based in the Independent Fleet Operations of Obsidian Fleet.

Crew's Choice Award for Railway

Liha t'Ehhelih AND Jake Ford

They both got the same amount of votes and to be honest they have both been excellent this mission.

Rose Award

Cassie Anderson
Her dedication to her lost husband is palpable. I look forward to seeing the two of them both reunite and contiue their travels together.

Jinx Jorasco
The mistaken identity romance subplot by this character was pure gold. I'm not big on reading romance, but I truly enjoyed reading every bit of it.

DeForest Kelley Humour Award

Liha t'Ehhelih
I mean, the entire Jake vs Liha arc has been the gift that keeps on giving. I can't take all the credit - my hat is off to the 'superior' Romulan over there! ;)

Jake Ford
Jake dealing with being in Liha's body - and dealing with Liha in general - has been fabulous. The writing and reactions have had me laughing through the whole scenario.

Vincent Anjes
His latest tag in sickbay, came out of the blue and nearly made me choke on my drink. [Vinny nodded. "Miss Massachusetts. Stunning woman, even for an El-Aurian. She was feeling, off. I advised her to take some time to herself. There were a few unusual anomalies with her labs, but nothing that seemed odd, at the time."]

Meritorious Newcomer

Vincent Anjes
I have absolutely loved writing the medical scenes with Dr. Vinny, whose obvious knowledge of the subject really comes through adding to the overall quality of the scenes. Plus, what a great personality in this character!

Friendship Ribbon

Ka'see 'Cassie' Anderson
The way the friendship between Burnie and Cassie expanded and deepened during their body swap has been a joy to write - so many interesting differences in their points of view and ways of dealing with being in the other's body.

Technical Medal

Vincent Anjes
His blending of medical terminology with Star Trek terminology is flawless. I feel like I'm watching an actual medical show.

» NEW MISSION: Stowaway

Posted on Sat Mar 20th, 2021 @ 9:00pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi All

As you all know what our current mission is and the fact this one is very much at the ending point.

Mission 13 - Stowaway

Ferengi Merchants have requested and paid the crew of SS Mary Rose to deliver cargo to Betazed. They are using outside handlers to avoid FCA taxes and bribes but little do the crew know what is inside until they are attacked and the shipment opened to reveal a stowaway. Do they give her up to the invaders for the supplies they need desperately to save a crew member's life or do they protect the stowaway and blow the chance they have been looking for?

I want to properly get this mission on its way now as it gives us so many amazing opportunities to write on a new planet with a varied plot. We have prepared a mission guide ,

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

Anyone want to discuss a plot or have an idea please grab me and we can discuss. This mission will kick off officially on April 5th

Crew's Choice Award for Prospecting

Jake Ford

Technical Medal

Vincent Anjes

For his seamless and enthralling mixture of both Trek tech and Real Life medical procedures and terminology. Though it was the first post that I read from this character, I look forward, with rapt attention, to see what comes next. Excerpt from jp: Vinny shook his head in response. "You're already there, doctor. I'll take care of the eyes, ears and nose stuff. You have fun with those kidneys." Vincent ran a scan from the surgical arm and transferred the images to a screen that was positioned where he could see clearly. The eyes had gross subjuctivial hemorrhaging. He ran an occular scan and then applied applied a minimal setting of the dermal regenerator and passed it over the eyes. This did not erase the bloodshot, but did minimize it significantly. The ears were tricky, as the tempanic membranes are delicate and can not be repaired instantly. He set the regenerator on a repeating setting that would work in small bursts. The scope attachment that was placed into the ear allowed for precise placement. The nose was next. There was a microarterial bleed that was caused by part of the septum being crushed and fragments lacerating the nasopharynx. It took some time to locate and beam out each fragment, but it wasn't impossible. The osteoreplicator was able to rebuild a new septum, but he would be sore for several days.

DeForest Kelley Humour Award

Eden Bowers

Who else would make a huge gross spider a pet? In character, others may see her as flighty (or from a Romulan pov, even more odd and flighty than most humans), but every eccentricity adds to humor and just general delight in the character. I'm never sure what to expect when she's tagged but it always makes me smile, or laugh out loud. reject approve

Plot Development Citation

Michael Burnstein
1st Nomination Cam's contributions to the sim cannot be understated. From tagging with everyone, coming up with new ideas for plotlines and inputting her knowledge from lore, to her unique characters. Plus in the Prospecting storyline Burnie got to blow something up, so yay!
2nd Nomination Without a doubt Cam throws spanner’s in the works often which truly inspire and make things so much more exciting and believable. SS Mary Rose would not be one of the best places to write without the monkey wrenches that can throws.

Captain's Personal Merit

Jake Ford
Jake took on the role of being Rosie’s XO half way through the year and has taken on his responsibilities with pride while being open to change and discussion. Being an XO on a Civilian vessel isn’t easy and we always knew it would be a tough position to fill and maintain but Paul really has strived to do his best while keeping a good attitude both in character and out of character. He keeps the CO in check and is always more than willing to scrub in despite his other fleet duties. Truly everyone should have an XO like Paul.

Civilian Commendation Medal

Nollel Livaam
She was pivotal to the mission plot and a really great addition, not just in that her prior story tied in giving her motive to help. Developing a romantic tie to Burnie that made for some crew friction and suspicion added a nice twist.
