Welcome to the USS Atlantis!

While various local powers strive to throw the Beta Quadrant into chaos, the USS Atlantis (NCC-81424) continues the original mission of the Federation: scientific discovery and cultural exchange.

As more and more Starfleet resources throughout the Federation are shifted into military roles to counter the growing threats posed by its opponents, 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.

Congratulations team! Bravofleet has decided that USS Atlantis should be named Sim of the Year for 2019! Not just for Task Force 93, but for the whole of Bravofleet!

I’m very proud to be leading us in this game. We were founded a little over a year ago. We’ve had our ups and downs. We won Sim of the Quarter for Q2 2019. We had a complex story for our first real mission that lasted a long time but also went some directions no one could predict. We also had a rocky start; we were briefly infiltrated by a known troll whom I managed to evict before we were two weeks old and we lost half our crew quite suddenly, all of whom have been replaced by amazing players. It seems our bad times helped shape us for even better good times. :)

It wouldn’t have been possible without each and every one of you producing very well written posts and compelling stories. The Rall story was something I came up with some time ago but a huge number of elements from it came from you all including the forced solo posts, the genetic diversity problem their cattle/aliens were facing, and the idea of their telepaths. The current mission is largely being driven by our XO while I’m stick-handling the Side Quest and a little moral dilemma piece. Some of us jokingly (and lovingly) refer to Atlantis as “USS Days of Our Lives” for the interpersonal relations stories we produce. That’s driven so much by the players who write interesting and sometimes quirky characters that we feel compelled to write friendships and love stories with.

Separately, I want to share that our Lieutenant Keri Kelea was named Task Force 93 Player of the Month!

And! Our post "Awkward Morning Conversations” won Task Force 93 Post of the Month for December 2019! What’s interesting is that I didn’t nominate it! Someone else read the posts on our website and decided this post was worth the award.

Thank you for making USS Atlantis what it is today!

First, I want to note that on 26 December, we officially celebrated being live for one year!

Crew

We currently sit at ten players. Our Chief Operations Officer, Raygi Benyan, was temporarily inactive but has requested to return.

We also currently have nine linked NPCs, a number that will soon grow. If you have ideas for NPCs, please let us know so we can work to see if they fit into the simm.

ACTIVE:
-Captain Yulin Rael
-Lieutenant Commander Alashanee Greystone
-Lieutenant Leland Hawksley
-Lieutenant Keri Kelea
-Lieutenant Zuub
-Lieutenant Raygi Benyan
-Lieutenant jg Ne’Tel
-Lieutenant jg A’drey Weaver
-Ensign Colette Blanchet

Website

We have been working with Ne’Tel to produce cool new images for the website! Stay tuned!

If there is something anyone sees on the website that appears out of place, please let your command team (Greystone and I) know. There are still some pages that likely have nothing on them. I want to build our website so there's a lot of information about the ship and our mission.

Sim
In December, we posted a total of 7 posts! That's not much, but I expected a slow-down during the holiday season.

Mission Recap

Following a brief stay at Starbase 611, where we took on Commodore Juliet St. Clair, Task Force Executive Officer for TF93 as a passenger en route to Deep Space Six, near the Raeyan Transit Corridor and our new area of operation, and where Commander Yulin Rael received a promotion to Captain.

Meanwhile, Commander Greystone and Lieutenant Ne'Tel are investigating allegations that the Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer assaulted the Nurse. A bar fight broke out between the suspect and the accuser's boyfriend. Both have spent a few days in the brig for conduct unbecoming. The boyfriend, Leland Hawksley, has been released. Commander Greystone has gone on a temporary leave of absence, in search of something that will help with the investigation.

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, I'm proud to award Player of the Month to Keri Kelea! We were light on posts this month, but there were two that stood out: "Worn Down", in which Keri must be ship's counselor to our chief engineer, recently released from the brig following the bar fight and struggling with the alleged rape of his girlfriend; and "Instant Attraction", in which her NPC confronts her alleged attacker, but is still somehow drawn to him. Keri has been a steadfast member of the team since Atlantis first launched a year ago, and it's been a delight to write with her all this time.

Post of the Month

This month, we’re giving it to "Instant Attraction”. An already complicated story made all the more complicated by a woman still being attracted to her alleged attacker. The heart wants what it wants, and romance flares during a confrontation. Our XO and Counselor, who write the NPCs involved, did great work once again.

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.

In November, we posted a total of 13 posts! That's fairly consistent with the last few months. It's not bad, but I think we can do better, team :)

It was hard to pick someone this month, but I have to give Player of the Month to my delightful XO, Lieutenant Commander Alashanee Greystone. With some amazing posts this month, including the Post of the Month, she has been guiding a story that began as a first incident between Kala Anjar and Amelia Wilde into a mission of its own. One that has already included a barfight and will go on to include a trial. I also happen to know that she has some amazing content in the works, and I can't wait for you all to read it. Well done, Commander!

Post of the Month

This is actually a new thing! The Bravofleet Admiralty, in an effort to better recognize its players' writing, has created a new category of awards, the Post of the Month. In principle we are free to nominate a post from our ship or another (though it makes more sense to me that it be one of ours.)

This month, I am almost compelled, as if strings are pulling my limbs from overhead, to give Post of the Month to "Puppet Master." A dark confrontation between XO Greystone and Chief Engineer Hawksley. Threats. Apologies. Crossing lines. Referring to someone as "Atlantis Princess." This post had it all. Both Greystone and Hawksley stepped up their game to write it.

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.

Sim

September was slower than usual, with 10 posts, but we improved in October with 14!!! I also know that there are some very good JPs in the works for our current mission.


Mission Recap

The Atlantis escaped the hell that was the Rall-conquered Aione System and has reached Starbase 611, where repairs will be completed and it will receive supplies and new crew. It will also take on Commodore Juliet St. Clair, Task Force Executive Officer for TF93. We are to transport her to Deep Space Six, near the Raeyan Transit Corridor and our new area of operation.

Meanwhile, Commander Greystone and Lieutenant Ne'Tel are investigating allegations that the Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer assaulted the Nurse. A bar fight broke out between the suspect and the accuser's boyfriend. Both have spent a few days in the brig for conduct unbecoming.

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, the award goes to Lieutenant Leland Hawksley! He was close to receiving the award a few times these past few months. Leland was essential in protecting the Atlantis from the Rall when we took the ship back, and was injured most grievously for it. This month, in the post "Prelude to Crime and Punishment", Leland really shined, standing up against Kala Anjar (who was being a huge jerk) and starting the bar fight that, in a lot of ways, is triggering our current mission. There's another post that is almost done that you'll see soon, which gives additional support to this pick. Congratulations Leland!

In principle we are free to nominate a post from our ship or another (though it makes more sense to me that it be one of ours.)

This month, I'd like to recognize "Prelude to Crime and Punishment" as Post of the Month. Though our current mission can trace its roots to a few "Between the Pages" posts from a few months ago, this post really sets off what we're going to be doing in November and into December. Emotions are running hot as our XO and Chief of Security investigate an alleged sexual assault, triggering this bar fight. And a lot of players got involved in interesting and creative ways. Congratulations, team, on a great post!

Sim

Last month, things really picked up, largely because of everyone's solo posts. In September, we were a bit slower, but that's largely because we were working mostly on large JPs, which always take a lot of time.

We put out 10 posts this month. That's one less than the previous month, but it took us over two weeks to complete the first post (Retaking Atlantis, Part 3). That took a lot of effort on everyone’s part so well done!

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.

In the Rall prison, the Atlantis crew was able to congregate in general population areas. Victims of the Rall gladiator arena called The Pit rioted and acquired weapons. The Atlantis crew managed to secure a portal station and get the crew back aboard Atlantis. Having learned how to block portals, the Atlantis crew prevented the Rall from reinforcing their boarding parties, permitting them to retake their home.

The USS Findlay arrived just in time to save Atlantis from total destruction. Having jumped free of Aione, the Atlantis and the Findlay are en route to Starbase 611, where we will take on new supplies and crew, finish repairs, and bury our dead.

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.

Generally, I don't like giving the Player of the Month to the same player two months in a row. However, Colette Blanchet did an amazing job this month, doing an absolutely delightful solo post, completing posts with Ne’Tel, Keri, and myself, and having a particular role to play in Retaking Atlantis Part 3. In all of these posts, her unique character comes through exceptionally clearly. Reading her sing The Logdriver’s Waltz to herself as she sits at the helm of the Findlay made me smile. Keep up the great work Col!

Post of the Month

This is actually a new thing! The Bravofleet Admiralty, in an effort to better recognize its players' writing, has created a new category of awards, the Post of the Month. In principle we are free to nominate a post from our ship or another (though it makes more sense to me that it be one of ours.)

This month, I'd like to recognize "Retaking Atlantis, Part 3" as Post of the Month. This post was the culmination of months of work as our characters finally retook Atlantis from the Rall. It involved all active characters and most of our NPCs. Everything came together beautifully as we took our ship back from those dragons and escaped their lost colony world.
