Welcome to USS Imperator: An Obsidian Fleet Simulation




Imperator is a Sovereign Class Starship attached to Obsidian Fleet's TF47 as the flagship of the Task Force. Currently, the ship is docked at Deep Space 16 in orbit of Risa, in order to undergo repair operations and allow the crew Shoreleave.


The ship is crewed primarily from former members of the crew of the Starships Wolff, Asphodel, and Starbase 47with her former CO, Rear Admiral Oliver Lancaster, having received Command of the ship. After a stint in the Delta Quadrant, the crew is now assigned to monitor the Klingon border, to try to keep the recent Cold War that has apparently developed between the Federation and the Klingons from turning hot.

When not dealing with this, however, they continue Starfleet's mandate to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilisations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.

Hey guys,

Just an update. This year's Obsidian Day is coming up, and as of tomorrow, June 1st 2018, the Golden PADD competition will be open for submissions! Not only that, but this year, Trek submissions aren't the only option as to what genre can be submitted. So long as it's sci-fi and an original story, anything is fair game!

Go to https://www.obsidianfleet.net/2018/05/20/golden-padd-2018/ for the rules.

» Sim Rule Update

Posted on Fri Mar 2nd, 2018 @ 4:55pm by Rear Admiral Oliver Lancaster in Sim Announcement

Hello guys,

As per my recent announcement on Discord, I have taken the decision to change the rules RE activity. They are now as follows;

When tag responses will take more than 3 days (i.e. if there's an RL matter interfering), I ask that you let the other participant(s) know in a timely manner. This one is not a rule but a request.

Inactivity without communication for 7 days will result in a strike.

Inactivity for 21 days without communication will result in removal from the sim.

The CO reserves the right to change these rules without notice at any time.

These rules are in effect from TODAY (March 2nd 2018). They will not be back dated.

Any questions should be directed to me.

Hope everyone is well.

Regards,

Ben


» Class Change

Posted on Mon Jan 22nd, 2018 @ 7:20pm by Rear Admiral Oliver Lancaster in General News

Hey all,

So, update on the class change. Effective immediately, we're transferring to the USS Imperator, a Sovereign Class Starship. Heads up, there is an error where the old Wolff skin still shows on the control panel. I am aware of it and it will be worked on.

We're also going to be starting our new mission within the next day or two.

Finally, we're going to start recruiting for the vacant positions. If you know anyone who would want to apply, please, send them this way.

Hope you are all well.

Regards,

Ben

First of all, we have a new Chief of Operations in Lieutenant Thorrin, who joins us as a transfer from the Cross. Also coming with his is Lieutenant Jg Kether McCloud as our new Chief Intelligence Officer. Finally, a brand new addition, Lieutenant Jg Erin Airey is our new Chief Counselor.

I hope you’ll all make them feel very welcome here, and join me in welcoming them to the team.

We're en route to Takan's rift, an anomaly on the edge of Klingon space. It's never been considered a particularly interesting anomaly by Starfleet Command. The last survey was conducted in 2345 by the Stargazer under Jean-Luc Picard. The report I read cited it as being "absolutely…
