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.

» March Update

Posted on Tue Mar 2, 2021 @ 4:15am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

So heading into March we've got a handful of JPs still going to wrap up the mission, but beyond that it's just going to be after-action character interactions! I know this lasted longer than anticipated but thanks to everyone for sticking through it. I'm going to start planning our next mission, and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions for plots or subplots feel free to send them my way. I have a general idea but I'd be happy to incorporate others to make sure everyone has stuff to do.

On an unrelated note, you may have seen this elsewhere, but there has been a change in fleet policy regarding the Department of Resources, which develops tech and ship descriptions, as well as maintains the wiki. They're now asking that anyone wanting to submit ideas run them through one of their COs first.


» January Update

Posted on Mon Jan 11, 2021 @ 12:18am by Commander Jason Faulkner in General News

Happy new year, everyone! We had a pretty good December, considering how busy everyone was. I know people have been up to a lot of stuff IRL the last couple of weeks, between the holidays, moving, and some car and computer trouble. I can see we've got several JPs in progress, so if you could all take a look at those as appropriate I'd appreciate it. If you have any questions about plot posts you could do, please give me a poke here or on Discord. Personal posts for your characters are also welcome as usual. I know I've said this a couple times but I'd like to try to wrap the current mission up so we can do something new, and I think we're getting pretty close if we keep up the momentum.
 


» 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.


» October Update

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!
