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.

Posted on Sat Apr 20th, 2024 @ 3:49pm by Lieutenant Imik S'Niohun in General News

Hello everyone, I of late have been missing for sometime. This is due to family problems, which are still on going. I may suddenly stop writing in the very near future, and I hope and wish for your understanding. Once the Family situation is finally resolved, it may take me some time to return. I thank you for your time and also your understanding that I can only give a hint of the true situation. Ayesha.

March is finished, and as some of us here in the US prepare for what should be a brilliant view of the total solar eclipse, I want to give my praise to the crew for pushing the limits in our posts and excelling with stories that would make Gene Roddenberry proud of the legacy that Star Trek has created. March was another month in which nearly the entire crew had at least 5 posts each, making my job to determine awards difficult, but worthwhile. Below you will find the awards, and I offer my sincere congratulations to our winners and wish them luck in the Fleet level as our representatives.
