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.

» Middle of September Update

Posted on Sun Sep 19, 2021 @ 9:23pm by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey all,

Here's a quick update as to where things stand with the current mission. We've gotten the first 'act' as it were out of the way with our discovery of this planet and its weird bug possibly-people. (Spoiler: they are people.) So, here's the main plot threads we're going to be dealing with next.

1) Science stuff on the planet. This would involve study of the local ecology and geology, especially investigating the bugs and whatever is underground that makes them so weird. This feels like it would most heavily involve Cooper, and probably with Vex along for when actual bears do show up. It might also be a good chance for Bren to get some away team time. This doesn't have to be all together as there's a couple things going on down there.

2) On the ship, there's decoding the language. This will probably involve technology to help better detect the signals plus cultural expertise to help program the translator. It also needs to be able to transmit back and be miniaturized to something an away team can use. This feels like engineering, ops, and probably the counselor.

3) Speaking of the ship, the tech teams will also soon need to deal with some bug issues of their own. You know how bug zappers have big glowing blue things? Do you know what our ship also has?

4) Interpersonal shenanigans as you see fit.

I can send out some more details as needed here or on discord, and you can always include my NPCs or the XO and his in JPs. I'll also be updating the wiki to include some descriptions of the aliens.

Thanks for great posting so far this month!

Posted on Thu Sep 2, 2021 @ 2:35am by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey everyone, here's some quick housekeeping for September. First, please join me in welcoming our new Operations officer, Eddie Vasquez, who just joined us a couple days ago. Second, Dr. Narud will be LOA while moving for at least the next couple weeks and may have spotty connectivity for a while after. If you have a pressing need for medical stuff, please touch base with me or the XO, or consider a visit to the counselor instead.

Finally, thanks to everyone for getting us over the finish line with posting last month. We more or less hit our target of an average of two per player. Let's keep it up! Please feel free to ask me here or on Discord if you need any ideas for what to do. Once the current bridge and away team posts are finished I expect things will open up some more.

Sorry about the delayed monthly update, I got my second vaccine mid-week and it hit me pretty hard. April was a great month for us! I think this has been a record number of posts since the first couple of months. Big thanks to everyone. I've opened up our second mission, entitled "Cicada Summer". It's going to involve us exploring a planet with giant bugs... FROM BEYOND SPACE. I'll be getting some opening posts going shortly but by all means please continue any interpersonal posts for the coda or for this episode.

Ray timed his arrival to the main shuttlebay just right. As he entered the bay at one end, the doors were sliding open at the other. In the distance he could just see a tiny dot moving against the stars, slowly growing larger. He wasn't usually responsible for this sort…

In the middle of a grassy field, a hum filled the air as the away team materialized. The area they found themselves in was savannah-like, with many tall hills rose from the main plane around them, rocky and covered with sparser scrub. Even in the grass areas though were many…

Briar limped into sickbay, cursing his own stupidity. For someone that had been practicing martial arts for as long as he had, you would think that he would have known better. Clearly, that was not the case. He glanced around, looking for a doctor or nurse.

"Oh Commander," Amon said…

Dessa believed in packing light.  A career in Starfleet didn't often lend itself to bringing along a bunch of trinkets although some people always seemed to find room for them.  She merely liked to pack a few outfits, a ceramic horse she'd had since childhood and a few real books…
