Welcome to the USS Standing Bear!

The Athegan Rift. Probably the most contentious place in the entire Inconnu Expanse. Six major worlds engaged in labrynthian politics for over a thousand years and prevented from outright disaster by the military prowess of Kethir. But when Kethir becomes isolationist, the situation in the rift changes dramatically.

A truce is declared, built on a gossamer web of mistrust and lies (because no one wants to admit their weaknesses), and the six worlds cooperate on building Athegan Station. Built to Federation standards as a gift to the Federation, the station is meant as a first step toward lasting peace. It is neutral ground.

The USS Standing Bear, ready for its maiden voyage, is ordered to the Athegan Rift on a complex mission of exploration, diplomacy and evaluation of the worlds that are suing for membership. Not an easy job especially when you throw in the Dyavek Hon, home-grown terrorists with their own agenda, pirates who seek to strip the rift of its vast resources, and oh yeah, there's that wormhole.

The USS Standing Bear is a Star Trek simulation (Roddenbery not Abrams) that focuses on the lives and adventures of the crew of an Insignia Class vessel tasked with a difficult (some might say nearly impossible) job. Interested parties are encouraged and welcome to submit an application (a sample post is required). One of the unique aspects of this sim is that, should the action stall (ever been stuck writing in a transporter room for a real-time month while everyone gathered?), actions will occur to shake things up ... right up to capture, imprisonment, even the destruction of the ship. So take a look around, drop by and visit us on Discord, and if you are looking for a new adventure, send in your bio.

It was not really a logical plan that Sarok followed on his tour of the Standing Bear, but after the little break in the lounge, he was headed to Stellar Cartography. As a former science officer, he was sort of curious to have a look at the scientific facilities on…

Serenity exited her Ready Room at 0800 and took her seat. A phrase surfaced in her mind, "Now voyager, sail thou forth to seek and find" as she looked around the Bridge where the Alpha shift was on duty and ready. You could almost feel the level of expectation, the…

[Deck 18, Main Docking Port]

"Computer," Zuth said as he ascended the boarding ramp and entered the ship proper, "What is the location of Captain..." he checked his PADD, "Nash?"

The computer replied in its quasi-female inflectionless voice. "Captain Nash is located in her Ready Room, Deck One. Do you…

Sarok was standing in front of the Captain's Ready Room and paused for a moment. He held a PADD in his hands with his orders to report to the Captain of the Standing Bear. Everybody would be nervous in such a situation. After all, this would be the first meeting…

Foizah always suspected that Tlullith Xaall was Tellarite for "She who is a pain in the ---"

Dr. Xaall had been in charge of the smaller field expeditions, including Foizah's on Dakibira VI. And Dr. Xaall seemed to take great pleasure in making Foizah review every item requested for her…
