USS Omaha

Welcome to USS Omaha NCC-68022

Pegasus Fleet

Excellence Requires Risk


USS Omaha is an Ambassador-class starship, just leaving the refit yards in 2394. At almost forty years old, she may not be quite as glamorous as the newest ships of the line like the Sovereign or Galaxy classes, but once you look past her quirks she's still built to venture past the frontier. The same goes for the crew: a mix of young guns, second chancers, and oddballs looking to prove that they've got what it takes to carry out Starfleet's mission of exploration and discovery.

Join us as we investigate ancient mysteries, delve into strange scientific phenomena, and occasionally get our shirts ripped.

» November Update

Posted on Mon Nov 9, 2020 @ 4:23am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

First off, thanks to everyone for posting more in October! Our numbers were much better this month. In fact, we received the Task Force Simm of the Month award for high posting! Congratulations to everyone!

Second, as you've all seen I've started a big briefing JP. I'm going to hand out some in-character group assignments for different parts of the plot. The basic outline will be:

Science, medical, flight control - retrieve sample of dangerous blue goop using shuttle/runabout, analyse for weaknesses
Engineering, more science - figure out the connection between the pyramid being damaged and this appearing. Fix pyramid or find other solution to stop good
Security, XO, counselor, possibly flight control as well - evacuate nearby town before blue good eats them all.

Obviously with NPCs mixed around as needed and to make sure everyone can participate. If something about this doesn't sound appealing, let me know and I can change stuff around.

Thanks again for posting! If you can wrap up existing JPs as well, that'd be great.

Posted on Sat Oct 3, 2020 @ 1:52am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

So I know things have slowed down a bit, and that's partly my fault for not keeping the story moving along. I'm going to start a couple more JPs and send out a couple plot suggestions to wrap up the current phase of the mission, and then by the middle of the month start the final 'act' of the plot, which should be more action-filled. In the mean time please remember that you can also do your own character-focused scenes, either by yourself or as JPs. I'm hoping to completely wrap this mission up completely by holiday season, at which point depending how busy people are there will probably be a short interlude while I gather suggestions for the next episode.


» August Update

Posted on Sat Aug 8, 2020 @ 2:53am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

We had a really great month of posting in July! A total of 34 posts, which is a good post-per-member ratio, and they were very good ones too. As we move into August I'm going to start up a few more plotty ones, but please always feel free to elaborate with your own plot- or character-focused ideas. Don't hesitate to tag me by any of the accounts, including the generic NPC one. Here's a few things that will be happening and some prompts:



1) Shore leave! Technically y'all can beam down and visit the planet, since it's a Federation world. In fact, there will be official encouragement to do so in an upcoming post. You will find people very welcoming right up until they inexplicably are not. Hit me up for details.

2) You can also visit for official reasons, like studying local life forms, helping fix something with the power system, whatever you might think is cool.

2b) I think I'm sending our flight control dude (I am assured this is the offical term) and some techies to make a house call for a civilian ship.

3) There is still an ominous pyramid to investigate. I will be starting a JP where the Chamber of Secrets is opened. Basilisk may or may not be included.

4) Speaking of cranky, the ship will be acting up. More than usual, that is. Oddly enough, it is the newest stuff that is being troublesome. I'm sure this is not ominous.



I'm thinking that at our current rate, the part where things start exploding will come by the end of the month, and then maybe wrap up by the end of September. Thanks for all your work and let's make this another great month!


» Crew changes

Posted on Thu Jul 2, 2020 @ 8:14pm by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey everyone, a couple crew changes are happening:

First, welcome to our new flight control officer, Jayden Bren, and our counselor, Gairon Jaggar! We will be slotting them into posts as soon as we can.

Second, our CMO, Dr. Zephaniah, has resigned from the simm due to other committments. Among other things, they're now our newly promoted TFCO, Captain Stillwater over on the Standing Bear. So while I'm sad to see him go, congratulations!


» June Wrap-Up

Posted on Tue Jun 30, 2020 @ 3:09am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey everyone,

We're at the end of June. If you have any posts you can wrap up, that'd be great so I can have big numbers. If not, that's fine too. But speaking of posts, if you think there's one that's good for POTM, let me know. The folks in charge have also asked me to boost the Fleet's Facebook page, where the nominated posts are being promoted, including ours!

https://www.facebook.com/pegasusfleet/

Finally, thanks for bearing with me on some of the recent posts. I know the pacing has been a little shaky, I'm still getting used to trying to run the plotty stuff as well as the purely character moments. I'm going to try to speed things up by starting several posts with people that will move us into the next stage of the story, where things get a little... livelier. Hope you like brawling! Also, possibly ancient traps in pyramids.
