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.

» End of March update

Posted on Mon Mar 28, 2022 @ 1:46am by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey everyone, we're closing in to the end of March. We had a great month in February and even got a couple task force awards again as mentioned in Discord (TF Post of the Month and Simm of the Month!) but we haven't gotten much done in this one. Everyone's got at least one JP going and if you could respond, or do an individual post, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Posted on Wed Feb 16, 2022 @ 4:26am by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey all, I just wanted to let you know that we were given the Task Force 56 Sim of the Month award for January! Thanks to everyone for pitching in last month. Let's try to keep it up as we head into both spring and the end of our current mission.


» Feburary '22 update

Posted on Thu Feb 3, 2022 @ 3:58am by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Greetings to those here in the frozen hellscape of the midwest and in all points beyond! We've had a slow couple months but with that last big JP we're getting back on track and pretty close to wrapping up this story. I'm going to try to include everyone in more posts as we can but please feel free to make your own JPs for character interaction or background support stuff. Please feel free to reach out to me for idea or JPs with any of my characters or even random crew. Same with the XO. Right now the main plot has most of the crew going down to the planet but the XO and many others are still up in space.

Unfortunately, our chief engineer has resigned due to increased work commitments. I'll be advertising this and other positions in various places to get more people aboard.

Thanks as always for playing and stay safe out in the winter weather, assuming it's winter where you are.


» Late November Update

Posted on Mon Nov 22, 2021 @ 7:30pm by Captain Jason Faulkner in General News

Hey all,

I want to start off by apologizing for how slow things have gotten this month. I know I've let the pacing slip and that some people haven't had a lot of guidance with the plot. I'm going to try to fix that and start up some new JPs with people I haven't done much with lately.

We're headed into the holidays so I know people are going to be busy. If you're going to be unavailable for more than a couple days, please let me know along with any JP partners. If you don't think you'll be able to do any JPs, don't forget that individual posts are also an option to do character development or backstory.

Thanks for your patience.

- Faulkner


 


» 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!

After about thirty minutes, the doctor had largely finished helping Sphene's damaged wing joint. It had been essentially a sprain, and the medical supplies meant for Federation non-organic species had been compatible enough for a simple fix. Meanwhile, the XO and counselor had been asked to beam down and join…

Eddie stepped back through the doors to his quarters shorlty after 2100 hours. It was nice meeting most of the senior staff, although he found their cheif science officer to be a little...grating. He made a mental note to look the man up later, everyone else seemed very opening though.…
