'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.

» 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.”




Two years served


Delaney O'Callaghan




Four years served


Jake Ford

Achievements




‘But I want a dragon’

- Participate in a JP around Dragons
Rueben Gregnol, Jake Ford, Michael Burnstein, Delaney O'Callaghan, Kalahaeia t'Leiya

‘I went, I had fun’

Rueben Gregnol, Jake Ford, Michael Burnstein, Delaney O'Callaghan, Kalahaeia t'Leiya
Whether it was the joust, the crowing of the harvest queen or Masquerade Ball


» New Player - Rormu Yazlin

Posted on Thu Sep 7th, 2023 @ 4:28pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Good evening Everyone

I would like to introduce you to our new player Emu, who will be playing Rormu Yazlin. They will be becoming our chief armoury officer. 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.

Hi Gang

There has been some fantastic writing for this mission involving dragons, drinking and the occasional fight. As we are pretty much into the final stretch of our mission it's that time again to nominate for Crew Choice award.

This is the only requirement we have around awards that everyone nominates for crew choice once a mission.

"Are you sure Betazed though?"

Though Delaney normally had no objection to her boyfriend's proximity, there was something decidedly awkward about trying to get around whilst only maintaining the use of one hand to carry everything she needed. Clipping things to her belt had helped, and there was certainly no…

Posted on Fri Feb 16th, 2024 @ 9:25pm by Chief Armoury Rormu Yazlin & Taev Mirok

He didn't often have a reason to visit Mary Rose so Taev took an excuse when it appeared, and for a change this one wasn't to deal with some issue or emergency. In fact, he hoped he'd avoided some of those by pointing a very well-qualified colleague in the direction…

Mission: Fractures
Posted on Sun Feb 11th, 2024 @ 4:36pm by Chief Comms Rivek & Captain Rueben Gregnol & Leiddem Kea (*)

Confidence is caution—the phrase that reverberated through Rivek's mind. A tall Vulcan-Orion man stuck out like a bolian bump. His only sense of safety had to come from his own body language. He strode across the concourse, trying to exude his Vulcan dignity. His eyes kept forward, but his peripherals…

Mission: Mirror Mirror
Posted on Sun Feb 11th, 2024 @ 10:50am by Chief Medical Officer Maeliana Lehn & Chief Engineer Jeassaho Kea (Mirror)

Jeassaho was not at all sure if Mae was on duty and it would be a lot easier if the woman was not but also she was likely to be treated a little more kinder. The ship was a death trap still but at least it was no longer spewing…

Mission: Fractures
Posted on Sat Feb 3rd, 2024 @ 9:35pm by Chief Armoury Rormu Yazlin & Laurier Cami

It was Jeassaho who first let slip to Cami that her title of 'only Bajoran on the ship' was about to expire. Although not an official one or even something most people probably thought about, the notion that another Bajoran was joining the crew had Cami's interest more piqued than…
