Welcome to the USS Atlantis!

While the Alrakis Pact continues to return the Alpha Quadrant to a state of chaos, the USS Atlantis (NCC-81424) continues the original mission of the Federation: scientific discovery and cultural exchange. As more and more Starfleet resources in the Alpha Quadrant are shifted into military roles to counter the Pact, as well as the growing threat posted by the so-called Freedom’s Legion, the Atlantis helps fulfill the scientific goals of the Federation and Starfleet.



Numerous positions remain available, especially:

* Specialist positions in Sciences, such as historian, astrophysicist, biologist, linguist, etc.
* Specialist positions in Engineering, such as damage control, impulse engines, warp engines, matter/energy conversion, etc.
* Assistant Chief Engineering Officer
* Assistant Chief Medical Officer
* Assistant Chief Operations Officer

Most assistant chief roles are presently filled with NPCs, but please do not hesitate to apply regardless.

Join Today!



USS Atlantis is a proud member of Bravofleet Task Force 93.





The USS Atlantis is the proud winner of the award for Bravofleet Task Force 93 Simm of the Month for June 2019 and the award for Bravofleet (overall) Simm of the Quarter for Q2 2019!

» USS Atlantis: Bravofleet Simm of the Quarters Q2 2019 (and some other news)

Posted on 04 Aug 2019 @ 9:34am by Commander Yulin Rael in General News

Congratulations team! Bravofleet has decided that the Atlantis is the Simulation of the Quarter for Quarter 2 2019!



It wouldn’t have been possible without each and every one of you, producing very well written posts and compelling stories.

https://www.bravofleet.com/player-simulation-of-the-2nd-quarter-2019/

I also wanted to share that I have been named Task Force Executive Officer for TF93. That shouldn’t affect our gameplay in any way, but I’ll be able to help shape our task force and its policies going forward.

Finally, I thought you’d be interested in knowing that in July, Atlantis was the most active simm in the Task Force. We had 28 posts spread across 10 players, and when taking other factors into consideration, like NPCs and counting JPs as one post per person, that number climbs fast! We were almost twice as active as the next most active simm in the Task Force.

I think we’ll be able to end the Aione mission in August, get our new players properly on board, and then get to our next area (on the way, resuming an investigation that began into the activities of a certain Bajoran Assistant Chief Tactical Officer...)

Let’s keep up the great work everyone!

Sim

In July, things really picked up! There were six posts in June, but that number went up to 28 in July! Good work team!

Mission Recap

In orbit of a Quantum Mechanical Black Hole near the Neethia system, the Atlantis sound a strange object that, upon further analysis, we realized was an artifact of the long-extinct Rall Empire, a culture that disappeared 35,000 years ago. However, the object itself, which we learn was fired from the planet Aione II 31,000 years ago. Something Rall survived the fall of their civilization.

First Contact with the Rall did not go as planned. The Atlantis has been taken over, with most of her crew transferred to Rall prison ships. Our chief engineer is being forced to fix the engines for them, while our XO undermines his efforts. The chief flight control officer has absconded with our shuttlepod, the Magnus, to find help with the USS Findlay.

Fascinated by the mixed-species nature of both our Counselor and her unborn child, the Rall saw in us a chance to solve their current crisis. They will use our ship to take them back to the stars, and want our crew to breed with the native Aioneans, their food stock, to improve their genetic diversity. Some of our crew complied with the Rall order. Others have resisted. Some have suffered.

But the time to retake our ship is rapidly approaching....

Player of the Month

For those of you who are not COs on your own ships, we're requested to name a Player of the Month, who has the chance of winning that honour for the entire Task Force. In order to recognize brilliance in writing and work OOC, I want to tell everyone who I plan to name every month.

This month, player of the month goes to Lt. jg Ne'Tel. Sam has developed something that is truly rare: an extremely compelling Vulcan character. The most interesting characters have flaws and weaknesses, and Ne'Tel's are both interesting to read and fit into our simm perfectly. I look forward to reading Ne'Tel posts, whether solo posts like his encounter with the Aioneans, or his private encounters with our XO, Counselor, or Chief Medical Officer (the latter of which sets up more to come).

Ideas

Please let us know if you have any ideas or things you'd like to see come of the sim. We are open to your ideas and suggestions.


» June 2019 Simm of the Month

Posted on 22 Jul 2019 @ 12:15pm by Commander Yulin Rael in General News

I want to take a moment to congratulate the entire crew of the USS Atlantis for winning Bravofleet Task Force 93 Simm of the Month for June 2019!



Here's what our nominee had to say about us:

I am going to nominate the USS Atlantis this month, I have found their storyline to be quite interesting and a thrill to read, they have offered a good and unique premise for people to join and they keep things moving. It might not be at a super-pace but they move the storyline forward with brilliant writing and with great teamwork and collaboration. The few posts that I did read were all done by multiple members of the simulation and led to some great interactions and story writing from the crew. Their posts are very detailed and provide the reader with a whole lot more than just from point A to point B in the post and the mission, so well done!

Keep up the amazing work everyone!

Sim

June was a slower month for us, to be sure, but that was largely because what posts we did get out were generally quite long and the result of good collaboration. So I insist we not be discouraged by only having six posts. For July, we will bring this number back up!

Mission Recap

In orbit of a Quantum Mechanical Black Hole near the Neethia system, the Atlantis sound a strange object that, upon further analysis, we realized was an artifact of the long-extinct Rall Empire, a culture that disappeared 35,000 years ago. However, the object itself, which we learn was fired from the planet Aione II (well outside known Rall space, about 10 days away from Carnwennan Station), 31,000 years ago. Something Rall survived the fall of their civilization.

First Contact with the Rall did not go as planned. The Atlantis has been taken over, with most of her crew transferred to Rall prison ships. The crew has surrendered, but many remain hopeful...

Player of the Month

For those of you who are not COs on your own ships, we're requested to name a Player of the Month, who has the chance of winning that honour for the entire Task Force. In order to recognize brilliance in writing and work OOC, I want to tell everyone who I plan to name every month.

Lieutenant Zuub has helped revitalize our ship. The character has already made several connections with the crew, in particular our Counselor and Nurse. Zuub joined just as the more complex part of our mission began, and her contrIbutions to those major mission posts have been very well written. Finally, this unique interpretation of Andorians is well crafted and interesting to read. I look forward to seeing how this character develops further.

In May 2019, this crew produced 30 posts! That’s in a month when we lost half our crew! We did even better than the time I put out the call for posts! Great job everyone!

Mission Recap

In orbit of a Quantum Mechanical Black Hole near the Neethia system, the Atlantis sound a strange object that, upon further analysis, we realized was an artifact of the long-extinct Rall Empire, a culture that disappeared 35,000 years ago. However, the object itself, which we learn was fired from the planet Aione II (well outside known Rall space, about 10 days away from Carnwennan Station), 31,000 years ago. Something Rall survived the fall of their civilization.

After a resupply at Carnwennan Station, where Atlantis was officially reassigned to Task Force 93 and much of our senior staff was transferred away, we set course for Aione. We arrived to find a thriving spacefaring (though not warp-capable) civilization. First Contact procedures have begun, but are not going according to plan….

Player of the Month

Lieutenant Keri Kelea, who has been a core member of the Atlantis crew since the ship launched and has come up with numerous excellent story ideas involving her main character and her NPCs. She’s demonstrated flexibility in her writing and is willing and able to go along with other people’s story ideas, no matter how weird. Every time I read a Keri post, I feel compelled by the drama unfolding on the page. I’m very lucky to have her on my crew.
