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.

» NEW MISSION: Temperance

Posted on Sun Jul 14th, 2019 @ 7:42am by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi all

It's been a while since we've shaken things up around how we do things so next mission we are going to be trying something a little different using mission notes and department goals. Department heads are not just responsible for these things but everyone who had a PC or NPC in that department.

This mission really is going to be a fun one as it links into some great Task Force lore that is going on and leads to a really amazing path for truly amazing writers. Really will change the ship... again IC. This will be starting August 1st so we have two weeks or so to finish the majority of Shore leave.

Temperance

SS Mary Rose comes across a Derelict Yeager-type ship. It is perfect to replace the ageing ship that seems to no longer want to work the way that it has always done but is all as it seems when things start to go bump on the new ship.

MD -14 - MD -01: Signs of wear and tear around the ship causing ship-wide issues.

MD 01: The Crew come across a Yaeger class ship abandoned and alone.

MD 02- MD 05: An investigation starts of the other ship to work out why it is just floating around.

MD 03: Debate begins on whether they should abandon SS Mary Rose for the Temperance.

MD04 - Onwards - Start repairs on USS Temperance. Things start to go bump.

Department Goals

Command: Debate the good and bad of moving ships.
Security: Assist the investigations, secure ship.
Medical: Survey the medical supplies and work to get Sickbay working
Science: Investigate with Engineering and Operations
Engineering: Get ship operational
Operations: Investigate with Science and Security
2246 Crew: Discuss the prospect of moving on with lives off Rosie.
All: Work with the faults on Rosie.
The crew left behind on Rosie: Try to keep the ship running on a skeleton crew.

If anyone has any thoughts or questions let me know.

» New Mission: Daucina

Posted on Sun Apr 7th, 2019 @ 4:37pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in Sim Announcement

Hi All

As per ship vote, we are moving on from Shattered to something a little less intense to give us a chance to refocus.

Daucina

It has been six months since the fateful adventure in the Alternative Universe. People have come and gone but the crew of SS Mary Rose continue to strive to make a way for themselves in the universe. A delivery of soil from Phados IV to Daucina Prime has given everyone a chance to take some much-needed rest and relaxation.

We have prepared a planet guide

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

Anything shattered related can continue until the end of the month if you have ongoing posts.

As usual, any thoughts or questions please PM me.

Posted on Fri Nov 30th, 2018 @ 11:06pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi everyone

Haven’t done an end of month report or anything for AGES… but I felt after last month it was important to tell you all that you are all awesome individually and as a group of writers. I know last month was hard work with us all ill, holidays and rough work weeks but we all managed 13 posts and 38 for participation which is awesome seeing we lost very active players last month and we have two LOA’s.

Going forward
Going forward with this mission is going to be fun and I would ask that you continue to plot and plan with each other. Don’t forget to look at the an AU timeline and a mission guide for a list of who is who is in our world. This is also the mission planner where you can sign up f

If you are stuck for something, come to me I always have ideas up my sleeve and if you have a character on Cosmos even more with our NEW joint post challenge .

End Of Year Nominations

If you haven’t seen our fleet is currently voting for End Of Year Nominations are open from now until 16th of December at 9pm GMT. If you think anyone is awesome around here please VOTE HERE .

Any thoughts or questions please pm me or contact me on discord.

» Site Maintenance 2018

Posted on Fri Nov 23rd, 2018 @ 7:20pm by Executive Officer Valiyi Uhin in Website Update

Hello all! Your friendly IT XO here, ready to come at you with another update of fun and excitement!

As you may well know, this site is well overdue for a giant overall. I'm not just talking front end, but back end as well. From the sim skin, to the rank pips, even down to some of the really gross background code and guts. When we redid the site way back when, I had veeeery little knowledge on how to properly work Nova. Now, I know a little bit more on what to touch and what not to touch, but at the end of the day, I have a hard time revisiting the parts that I've already hideously wrecked, and I'd like to rectify that.

So, as such, this will serve as a sort of pre-maintenance warning as I rip out all the Nova code and do a fresh reinstall of the whole thing, but this does mean site downtime. This will occur over the weekend, but do expect me to make loud noises about it beforehand on the Discord. I don't expect this to take more than twenty four hours, but if something does occur, I will be keeping everyone posted.

This maintenance will occur tonight or tomorrow, and I will let everyone know every step of the way. Thank you much!
