Welcome to the U.S.S. Poseidon!
The year is 2393. Six years after the death of Ambassador Spock, the Alpha Quadrant is still reeling from the effects of the Hobus Supernova which destroyed Romulus and Remus. With Empires struggling to survive and minor powers vying for supremacy, it is an interesting time for the United Federation of Planets. In the chaos, piracy has been on the rise, with typically peaceful trade routes to distant Federation frontier worlds now coming on periodic attack by roving bands of marauders. The U.S.S. Poseidon, a Miranda-class starship, is the beginning of Starfleet's response to this problem. Returned to service from mothball and refitted for modern service, she is to act as Starfleet's arm and shield in places left unprotected. These are the adventures of the Poseidon, and she needs you as her crew.
The crew and commanding officer of the U.S.S. Poseidon (NCC-42635) welcome you to our homepage! The objective of our sim is to provide an avenue for fans of Star Trek sims to explore one of the less detailed areas of traditional Star Trek Role Playing, that of convoy escort and anti-piracy operations. Missions will inevitably vary depending on what comes down from Pegasus Fleet, but the primary goal and objective of the Poseidon is to represent a solid presence as Starfleets commitment to peace and security with its member-worlds and their peoples, and act as deterrent to the enemies of those ideals.
Positions on the U.S.S. Poseidon are generally open to all applications. We welcome all aspects and avenues of experience, and are eager to have you join us on our adventures. Since the U.S.S. Poseidon is essentially an active-duty training vessel - despite its mission perimeters - missions will generally include objectives that encourage character growth and exploration in order to flesh out players perspectives and worlds. Each post adds to the creation and legacy of the Poseidon, and each player is more than welcomed to use the Poseidon to hopefully reach for better, more prestigious ships and positions within Pegasus Fleet!
If this unique aspect of Star Trek RPG interests you, feel free to apply to join today!

Firstly, I'd like to welcome our new Chief Medical Officer, Lieutenant Nivora T'vek, who is played by Lt. Nivora T'vek on our discord. Nvoria, or as I know them, Nova, is a wonderful role player from the same nation simulation game I've been mentioning recently. His excellent understand of writing and storytelling will be an asset to us, and assist us in our mission at welcoming and tutoring new cadets as they roll in - both newbies and professional players alike! Welcome, Nivora T'vek!
In another bit of news, WOW! Look at those numbers! We are killing it on participation and I want to thank you guys for this. Along with Lt. Nivora T'vek, a lot of others who have joined recently have really stood up and taken the initiative. Thank you all for making this sim so active! I cannot thank you enough from the bottom of my heart. This ship is now a part of you, as much as me, and I'm so happy to share the experience with you!
Lastly, we are well underway in our mission briefing and it's running fantastically. Remember you're free to opine anytime and further the story! Once we're done we'll continue our joint postings from before the meeting in the time, and some just after. I've already established our next mission within our mission group as "departure", and it'll include our shakedown and thereabouts. Take all the time you guys need to flesh out your stories and explore new avenues, because I'm really loving this creativity!
Keep Up the Good Work,
Franklin S. Johnson

I'd like to extend a hearty welcome to our new Chief Science Officer, Lieutenant Canaan Serine, played by howtypicallyhuman on our discord. Canaan has a wonderful history on several simming fleets, with command staff experience within at least two of those. The USS Poseidon is lucky to have gained the attention of someone as experienced, and friendly, as Canaan and we all welcome you aboard. Thanks for joining our adventure!
Have a gander at their character profile as well, it's wonderfully detailed and provided me a great morning read!

To clarify the canonical implications of starting the Senior Officers meeting first, we are undertaking this because it was one of the most requested before we began "Departure and Trial Run". Canonically, the Senior Officers Meeting takes place JUST BEFORE we are to launch, but every mission posting taking place now between crew takes place BEFORE the Senior Officers meeting. Everyone is still completely free to mission post at will, but all mission posts must take place before the senior officers meeting in our timeline.
Just to Clarify,
Franklin S. Johnson

First I'd like to give a warm welcome to a fellow CO, Lieutenant Hibiki Zh'kallas, who plays Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer. They are a very wonderful person and command the ISS Asha, but have chosen to participate in our sim much as I in theirs. Wanted to give a heartfelt thank you and place a little advertisement for them here.
Here's the link to the ISS Asha, she needs some good crew!
Lastly, I wanted to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone on this sim. Thank you so much for being a part of this journey and making the Poseidon what she is right now. I have no doubt in a few months we will reach and surpass activity, and create here a wonderful community thanks to you guys and gals. Thank you so much for making my day, for making this possible.
With Deepest Respects,
Franklin S. Johnson

It is with excitement and an elated sense of joy that I extend to you the information that I've been eager to share. The USS Poseidon is now classified as OPERATIONAL! Great job everyone! We gained far beyond the minimum of six crew to achieve this status and we are well on our way to moving forward with our second mission. I want to personally thank all of you for your activity, for your willingness to join, and for being awesome and fellow fans of Star Trek! You've made this possible and I give credit entirely to you.
Continuing with our good news, we're about to wrap up our time in drydock! That's right! We've almost concluded the majority of our meeting mission posts and we're dwindling down to the last few. Things have progressed much faster than even I could anticipate and I wanted to personally extend my thanks to everyone who has made this possible. Let us all remember that our minimum posting requirement is *one per week* - minimum - so let us show respect to those of us who are legitimately busy but also want to participate. No rush, no fuss, we will all work together as a crew and we will participate as such.
In that same regard of crew cooperation, I must extend a fantastic thank you to both Ensign Sydney Allen and Lieutenant, Junior Grade Freya Svanirsdottir for their absolutely fantastic display of cooperation and activity. I do not expect this level of anyone, but when I see it, I will congratulate you. So good job you two, expect some rewards when I finally get those sorted out!
Speaking of awards, that's one of the final things I need to add to the sim, so until I get that added we can't realistically add any yet. I will, however, recommend awards to you on Pegasus Fleet. Keep an eye out!
We've been updating and fine tuning our Discord! If you have any further suggestions feel free to ask them in the appropriate channel. Furthermore, remember to utilize the tag channel to tag your partner once the post is done - if you're not already in voice. It shows activity! Thanks for using it guys so far!
We have a permanent member of Pegasus Fleet Command there right now, Fleet Captain Somers, and we graciously extend our welcome to him. I invite all the crew to ask away their questions and concerns, or just chat with him! That's why he arrived! Also to activate us, which was a wonderful event!
Keep up the fantastic work everyone. Those who I have not named, don't worry, I see your activity and contributions, and I will accordingly be giving out awards soon. You guys have more than deserved it.
Finally, let's all welcome our newest - and returning - addition to our fine Miranda-class starship. Lieutenant Nealey Brinsley, our new Chief Operations Officer, who is played by Annabel on our discord. Annabel was the ORIGINAL Executive Officer on the Poseidon back in 2017 and, thankfully, found her way back here. I and the XO, as with many others, are honored and privileged to have her back. Welcome back! We missed you! The Poseidon just wasn't the same and now that you're back, it feels like home again.
Keep up the good work everyone,
Cmndr Franklin S. Johnson
