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 Task Force 72 of Obsidian Fleet.

» Awards - Holoworld

Posted on Thu Jun 9th, 2022 @ 11:33am by Captain Rueben Gregnol in Sim Announcement

Hi All

I finally got around to doing the awards for the previous mission. Some of them are from people who are no longer part of community for whatever reason but still important that their thoughts at that time are spoken.

Congratulations all

Please do not forget you can vote at any point.


Crew's Choice Award for Holoworld


Michael Burnstein
“Eva is fun to write with, and I'd love to do more! I feel like although she joined mid-mission, she did still make that effort to get to know some of the crew and build relationships. :)”
“Absolutely everywhere and writing with everyone during this mission. Great to write with too”





DeForest Kelley Humour Award


Michael Burnstein
Thorbran is a gift. And Cooking with Burnie definitely needs to be a thing. A well-rounded character who has brought more than the occasional chuckle.
Kalahaeia t'Leiya
Kali is a pip. Her unique dual culture vision, plus a temper and general attitude make her a great addition whose observations - internal or blatantly shared - a lot of fun to read and to write responses to.





Library Excellence Ribbon


Evahnae Kohl
I definitely think that Serahni deserves this one! She's ingratiated herself into the sim and regularly churns out posts with incredible complexity and talent. Her characters are well thought out, yet flexible enough to maneuver throughout a variety of zany situations.Kalahaeia t'Leiya
We've only been able to see the tip of the iceberg but this is a great character with a distinct personality. Her potential would be squandered without the ability to follow through with her portrayal and, so far, she's been a joy to read and interact with. A creative writer but also a generous and engaging writing partner who pulls their weight and always makes sure whoever they're writing with has something solid to respond to.





Scheherezade Award


Michael Burnstein
As a native New Yorker, I appreciate the detail that Burnie put into the holoprogram of NYC for Nollel. Especially, the gem..."Some appeared as interactive characters roaming around the pedestrian plaza (including a nearly naked cowboy, or so the words across his backside said)" Lololololol!! While the Naked Cowboy has become a nation-widw known character, it adds a bit more color to the mental picture that Burnie is painting, to include him in. Well Done!!





Unsung Hero Medal


Beya
I've really enjoyed my interactions with Cam on the ship but with Beya in particular, I can tell this is a very well-rounded character with a lot more hidden depths and she's always there to back up medical posts or go for a jaunt in the holodeck1 I'm looking forward to developing Hiram and Beya's relationship more as colleagues and to see the ways she expands on Orion culture.





Meritorious Newcomer


Evahnae Kohl
Eva showed up and jumped right in, writing with everyone, creating subplots and creating a whirl of writing. A ton of fun to write with too.





Plot Development Citation


Reuben Gregnol
I'm going to have to go with Becca for this one since all of this plot wouldn't be possible without her! She has put a ton of work into the characters and settings behind the scenes and she keeps everything moving along at a good pace. Lots of hard work and creativity here.

Hi Gang

There has been some fantastic writing and a flurry of Jp's posted in the last few months so please keep up showing the fleet and ourselves just have amazing we are. As we are heading into the final stretch of our mission it's that time again to vote for the Crew Choice award.

I would really like everyone to vote for this award and any other ones you think other members deserve.

Please vote here.

» Happy Six Years To Us

Posted on Fri Dec 31st, 2021 @ 9:59pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

SS Mary Rose was created over the Christmas period and I was originally the XO and two people took the Commanding Officer spot before I finally was like fine, I’ll take it in Feb 2016. So, as I like to tell people every anniversary that Rosie was created as the Big Ben’s bell tolled to bring in UK’s 2016. I was drunk on cheese and bailey's much like now.

This new year’s eve means she is six years old and I couldn’t be more proud of the stories that we tell especially over the last two years with the ongoing worldwide pandemic. It takes a lot for a civilian vessel to be created let alone thrive and be as unique as we have become in developing our open-world concept but in delving into all the new lore that the shows have thrown our way.

I want to thank every single person on this ship on a personal level for steering me and the rest of the command team right this year. I am truly thankful and excited to see what 2022 brings us.

Stay awesome

Good Evening Everyone

Please let me take this opportunity to wish everyone Merry Christmas to all of you and your families.

This year has been another strange one with world wide events. I appreciate everyone taking the time to tell stories here. The command team have loved having everyone here.

Going into our sixth year we have many events in the works but we need you to suggest more that you want to see. Please reach out to me via pm on site or dm on discord to talk about it.

» November Update

Posted on Sat Dec 4th, 2021 @ 4:20pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi All

The month of November was the busiest we have been in over a year and there had been so much happening and so many achievements achieved.

Cannot wait to see what this month brings.

Rosie Mission: Holoworld



Following a distress call from a nearby moon the crew of the SS Mary Rose follow the signal taking them off course from picking up their newest cargo delivery. They discover a fully working holodeck-hotel ship the ‘SS Holoworld’; intact apart from the engines that were damaged on impact. Deciding to do a little scavenging from the ship to see if they can find the medicine they need they beam onboard.

This eventually leads the crew to discover that the holographic ‘hosts’ malfunctioned and caused the damage that crashed the ship. These hosts soon turn on their new guests...

Key posts that have happened this month::

Kaleetha realises she is not alone on SS Holoworld as Kalahaeia is still onboard. They team up to survive.

Leiddem and Eva meeto one of the stranded passengers believing her to be a hologram.

New CMO took over as the old one could not handle the abandoned ship and the struggles.

Current stuff happening::

A team has found the stranded passenger and are trying to convince them that they are the good guys and want to help them.

Many holo programs are running with weird and wonderful ideas but is there a catch?

All mission dates up to MD04 are now closed unless they are currently being worked on.

Don't forget to look at the mission guide ,

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


Cosmos



The Cosmos crew are assisting with an archaeological survey and two of the crew have discovered a cube that has made the Executive Officer disappear for several hours before returning him.

Petty Officer Dezom was injured in the incident, losing her eyesight temporarily. The Executive Officer has been acting strange since his return.



Shattered



The crew of Fenris have responded to a joint Cardassian force coming to defend a world. They know about the ISS Firebird, the incursion to another universe, Betazoid survivors and the fact Gregnol’s wife is alive and running the resistance.

The Empress has decided to visit the Butcher of Betazoid and his crew. Lieutenant Saa kills the Science Chief Commander Smithson and ends up in an agoniser for the night as she did the ship a favour in the long run. Evanna Belyaev takes over science and reveals to the Butcher what exactly has been going on under his nose.

The lights kept going out.

It had been predicted, at least, and thus was less of a shock than it was a nuisance. At first, it had been more of a flicker, the occasionally dimming to herald their increasing proximity to the storm that would eventually, likely, wipe out lights…

The dress covered just one of her shoulders, left the other uncovered and flowed down into a stylish neckline. It was a snug fit which gave the dress a relaxed, yet graceful look. Paired with the fur-lined cloak that she had the hood up for was perfect. Indigo absolutely loved…
