Welcome to the USS Nomad!


Task Force 72 Simm of the Month - April 2017



Starfleet has been stretched thin. With campaigns in all quadrants of the galaxy, worthy ships and capable crew are at a premium. Shipyards and academies churn out new starships and officers, but the demand has been difficult to meet. In 2387, a now classified incident known as the Rizzari Incursion occurred; an alien ship of unknown origins arrived on the Federation’s doorstep. All crew had been killed. Inspection of their database indicated that had traveled nearly 30,000 light-years in a matter of days, despite their ship only being capable of warp two.

Starfleet Intelligence was forced to draft a unique solution to a peculiar problem. A year later, faced with a high-risk mission with invariably low odds of success, Starfleet Intelligence dredged up a relic of a ship and staffed her with Starfleet’s most ragtag and dispensable crew. Officially designated ‘Expendable’, the USS Nomad and her crew of misfits are led by the contemptible Maxwell Pierce, who, prior to the Nomad’s mission, was serving a sentence for dereliction of duty and violation of the Prime Directive. Using a device found aboard the Rizzari ship, Maxwell Pierce will take command of an antique ship and lead his crew of outcasts on a one-way trip into the unknown. Described as the ‘Wild West’, Sector 557-B is a region of space burgeoning in the dawn of a Warp Age.

Team,

I'm happy to announce that I'm moving the character of Naar Grehk into the role of Chief Engineer which was recently vacated. I'll have an in-character post completed in the coming days to reflect the change. Thank you all for churning out the posts and keeping the story moving along.

Greeting Nomad Crew,

Sarah, who played as our Second Officer and Chief Engineer Anaya Chamling, has decided to take a break from simming for a while and has resigned from the Nomad. She wishes us all good luck as we carry on with our missions.

Because she was involved in a number of ongoing JPs, our XO Jonathan (Dynehart) will be taking some time to edit said JPs to clean them up and account for her absence. We ask that you wait until after the weekend to post in the JPs. We'd prefer to salvage them as a lot of work has gone into them thus far and they help to move the narrative along.

If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to message me. Jonathan and I will discuss the possibility of a new 2O in the future, so keep up the good work and it could be you!

-Anthony (Maxwell Pearce)

Commander Pierce wasn't sure how to feel. He'd just received a recorded message from Admiral Rhoades indicating the presence of someone from the Intelligence division aboard his ship. Gwen Emberly, a simple Counselor, was in fact a plant. Pierce trusted Rhoades, but it was becoming painfully obvious that the trust…

Tu'Pari had been studying and reviewing the material sent to the Nomad by the Koparaans. Much of what was sent had been very straightforward. They made no secret of the fact that they were a race of clones, but Tu'Pari felt the need to dig deeper.

And, she believed she…

Preparing for the unknown was always tricky. However, difficult did not mean impossible. As she waited for the team to arrive, Helena instructed the computer to set up the program.

Grace rushed out of the turbo, down the corridor and began frantically knocking on Brooke Niamh's door.
The data to which Brooke had sent her had pretty much sent her over the edge.
Sliding open slowly, the doors to Brooke's quarters still having not been repaired, Grace entered to find…
