Welcome aboard the USS Ermiana!

"The difference between the novice and the master is that the master has failed more times than the novice has tried"


Welcome aboard the USS Ermiana. The year is 2371, the "Cold War" between The United Federation of Planets and The Dominion has begun. One year ago the Federation Starship USS Odyssey was destroyed by The Dominion as a show of force to the Federation that they will no longer tolerate incursions into their space.

The Ermiana, a brand new Galaxy Class Starship launches in this time of uneasy peace. The Galaxy has never seen a threat like The Dominion since the Borg Invasion of 2367, four years ago when 39 Starships were destroyed in The Battle of Wolf 359. Now The Federation faces the Dominion and decreasing relations from the Cardassian Union and Klingon Empire.

Will you be part of History? Welcome to the Ermiana, one Starship which will face it all.




This sim is set in the canon Star Trek Era of Star Trek Deep Space Nine's Season 3 onwards, linking in with the end of Star Trek The Next Generation and the first season of Star Trek Voyager. We will be relating to canon historical events, however we will NOT BE interacting with canon Characters, Ships or events. The aim of the Ermiana is to explore the "Off screen" events mentioned in this time period. However please note that events seen in the TV series will have an effect on our missions and storylines.

Posted on Sun Nov 22nd, 2020 @ 4:22am by Captain Mikoto Misaka in General News

To all crew.

I have set up a side mission for us to write in. This mission will be open until mid January and will NOT take place in any timeline. Its just to have some fun and do a little bit of Christmas Themed Writing.

This year, Captain Misaka and any senior staff that wish to participate will be taking the Ermiana's children on a journey to the North Pole to see Santa Clause on Christmas Eve.



This is how the side mission will work out:

- Our wonderful steam train will pick up the children one by one from their 'quarters'. We'll do some very clever Holodeck/Transporter thingy here to make it all look 'magical'.
- We'll set off for The North Pole, on our train with the children on board. These will be the crew's children and obviously their parents know what we'll be doing. Its all for a bit of fun and to keep the magic of Christmas alive.
- Hot chocolate being served! Yay!
- Of course something will go wrong, maybe we'll lose a ticket, maybe we'll drift a train over a lake? Who knows.
- We'll eventually get to the North Pole to see Santa Clause.
- Then Santa will select a child and give out the first gift of Christmas.

Now there are several positions that need filling, complete with costumes.

Train Conductor: Captain Misaka
Santa Clause: Available
Train Engineer: Available
Train Fireman: Available
Train Crew/Hot Chocolate Servers: Available
Children: Anyone who wants to NPC a child

How about we have a little bit of magical fun. I'll be starting a post shortly to get us kicked off. This is completely voluntary, but its all for some fun.

To all crew.

I hope this news item comes to find you all well. After knowing that a lot of us have been affected in someway regarding the global pandemic of Covid 19, I have been lenient in posting requirements.

However, I am hoping that in the next few weeks to get the ship back upto an active state. I understand that times are difficult, but could I kindly ask for 2 tags in a joint or solo post a week. Thats not a posted post, just a tag back etc.

I would appreciate it if you could all touch base with me regarding this. I can help you with getting something started or catch you up on current ship events. This is a great ship and you're all my crew and friends. Let's get moving again.

Regards

Captain Mikoto Misaka

The Ermiana has now officially left spacedock, and we're all aboard! Well done to everyone for helping get the ship ready and out into space. The first mini-mission "New Beginnings" has now been completed and we are moving onto our first main mission "Cleaning Up".



Cleaning UP takes place on Veridian 3 where we will be tasked with removing all sensitive equipment, technology and data from the crashed saucer section of the USS Enterprise D. We will also be overseeing the civilian contractors and corps of engineers who are tasked with dismantling and removing the wreck.

At the moment there is a mission briefing starting in the observations lounge for all senior officers. We'll get some ideas rolling and a plan in place.

I am proud of you all for the effort you've all put in.

Also, an out of character special announcement! Can we all please send our best wishes and congratulations to Lieutenant Zon th'Tetz, also known as Kurt.
