Welcome to the USS Washington-E!

Welcome to the USS Washington-E, a post-Dominion War sim. The year is 2386. The Dominion War has been over for several years, but its aftermath is still unfolding. The Federation and the Romulans are the only two major powers, and only the Federation is stable, to a point. The Klingon Empire is still rebuilding and addressing its many wounds from the war, Cardassia is in shambles and occupied, and the Romulans are in far worse shape because of their own misdeeds than they would have outsiders believe. The Federation is now the lone superpower in the Quadrant, a role it neither wants nor enjoys. Exploration has returned, but the dangers of space have never been more pronounced. Welcome to the USS Washington, where danger and adventure lurk around every corner.

Excellent Star Trek

The USS Washington is a proud member of Independence Fleet

» Fleet Anniversary

Posted on Tue Jul 4th, 2023 @ 9:21am by Captain Shran dh'Klar in General News

It is July 4th, which here in the USA is Independence Day, and it is also the Fleet Anniversary. So, if you are like me, and you have been around for a while here in Independence Fleet (Julia and I are the two longest tenured members of the Fleet) or even if you are new or only been around for a short period of time, I want to wish you all a happy Independence Fleet Anniversary. This fleet has endured since 2001 and this sim was one of the original sims that started it all, so we have a legacy that we all add to with ever mission and post. I have links to a few items that are in place for the Fleet Anniversary and hope you take a moment to take a look and enjoy, and as always, happy simming.
