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.

Summer is just around the corner, and what can be our most hectic month in the front half of the calendar certainly kept us all busy. The story has shown a great deal of detail as everyone has contributed a great deal. We had a lot of great Trek and sci-fi writing in general, and Inara has continued to manage to keep as much of the real science in place as possible. Below you will find the May awards. I want to congratulate our winners, and as always, I wish you all luck as you represent us at the fleet level. On to June!

Crew of the Washington.

I am surrounded by people who believe being a Starfleet Officer should be priority over being a scientist. I'm hoping this insubordinate charade convinces them to kick me out of Starfleet. So I can prove Starfleet has become a military during the events of the Dominion War.
