USS Falchion

A Theta Fleet Simulation

Welcome.

Recent history has not been kind to the Federation or Starfleet. The prosperous circumstances of the 2360s disappeared during the decades that followed. The Federation's resources were sunk into preparations for war with the Borg, the coming of the Dominion War, the rebuilding of Cardassia, and recently, relief efforts in Romulan space. All the while discontent was building within the Federation. The Cardassian Union collapsed after the Dominion War, the Dominion was destroyed, the Romulan Empire fragmented after the destruction of its central world, and the Klingon Empire has become increasingly hostile.

It is in these uncertain circumstances that our story takes place. The crew of the USS Falchion will choose how to face challenges posed by our search for the unknown, threats from outside the Federation, and unrest within the Federation's borders. Each problem is different, and the solutions are yours to find. Join us today and become a part of a team working to preserve the Federation in difficult times.

Posted on 10 Jan 2017 @ 9:29am by Commander Vasilep Sunamet in General News

Hello everyone!!

I've finished updating Nova to the latest version. If you have any problems or questions, please let me know.

Now on to the news. We are officially beginning our new mission. It is titled: "Sabotage" This mission idea was originally developed by Kelvan. This mission will take place some two months following the final post of "Carrying the Wrong Cargo" During the intervening time Falchion's senior officers have endured a large number of inquiries into their actions with regard to Ms. Coros.

Although we have officially been cleared, some members of the Admiralty hold a grudge, and have assigned us an important, but highly dangerous mission. We are to travel to the Gamma Quadrant through the Bajoran wormhole and destroy a factory producing a new type of Ketracel White...after sabotaging the substance to kill the Jem'Hadar who use it. The reformed Dominion is staging for another invasion.

I'd like this mission to bring up some conflicts between our orders and what we think is right. (i.e. - Is it okay to poison thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of sentient beings? Even if they are born and bred as slaves to the Dominion? Even if they will kill and enslave everyone we know and care about? I know where Vasilep stands, but I hope we can have some spirited posts about topics like these.)

Additionally, this mission will set up a couple of missions that I have planned. As always, though, if you have different ideas I'd love to hear them.

I've posted a mission briefing in the Mission Notes section.

I hope all of you are well.

» Moving Into the New Year

Posted on 28 Dec 2016 @ 9:57am by Commander Vasilep Sunamet in General News

The new year is going to be bringing with it a number of changes. During the last week or so, as I've celebrated the holiday with my family, I've also been thinking on this simulation and where we are going to go, and how we should proceed.

Starting January 1, 2017 the USS Falchion will be a part of Theta Fleet's Area 51. Area 51 is a place for simulations that don't fit into Theta Fleet's official canon. We won't. Because we're going to be in Area 51, we can pretty much chart our own course. Each of you will have the protections offered by a Fleet, and we'll still have a pool of shared players from which to recruit, but unless we seek them out, the Fleet won't interfere with anything aboard our simulation. I believe that, for now, this is the best solution for Falchion, and I hope to have your support in it.

We have also, sadly, lost a player. Carson Price has not responded to multiple attempts to contact him, so we'll use his character as an NPC (as he agreed to have done).

I'm working up an awesome plotline for our next mission. "Carrying the Wrong Cargo" should wrap up in another two weeks or so and you'll get to see something that should provide plenty of fodder for our creative minds. As always if you have suggestions, please let me know!

I will be updating posts today and then be offline for most of the rest of this year. There are a number of family obligations coming up, and as you know, family comes first. If you need anything, however, you can absolutely contact me and I will get back to you as quickly as possible!

Happy New Year everyone!


» A Happy Holiday Season

Posted on 25 Dec 2016 @ 12:06am by Commander Vasilep Sunamet in General News

Hello Everyone,

It's a slow season in simming, and that is largely due to the holiday season. This is not only okay, but expected. Many of us take time away to spend with family, enjoy time away from work or school, and to celebrate one or more holidays. On this simulation we respect and celebrate with everyone. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, the New Year, or just a chance to be away from the office, we want to wish you a happy holiday season and would love to share in your celebrations and enjoyments.

In the best tradition of my own beliefs, I'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope that the spirit of giving and thankfulness will surround you and yours. Please be safe and happy.

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

-Brent

» Happy Thanksgiving and Another Award

Posted on 23 Nov 2016 @ 7:10am by Commander Vasilep Sunamet in General News

Hello again,

I have a few new pieces of news for everyone. First off: Happy Thanksgiving (1 day early) from the United States. I hope each of us takes some time to consider the things and, more importantly, the people we are thankful for during this time. With the ever increasing consumerism surrounding our holidays I hope that we can take the best parts of the traditions that have arisen around them and make that our celebration.

In token of Thanksgiving I want to express gratitude for such a dedicated and wonderful group of writers. You're the best. In token of that, Kelvan (VInce) has nominated Gilik Farys for the Professional Merit Award and I have approved it. This is a well deserved award.

For those of you who have not received an award yet, don't worry. You are in my thoughts on how best to recognize your contributions to the simulation. As with the last time, I encourage you to nominate your fellow crew for an award. It's a great way to recognize each other, and I know when I have received awards, it helps validate the effort I put into writing here.

Finally, I have purchased an inexpensive domain specifically for our little simulation. The old link still works, but we have an additional way to access our site. The address is: http://uss-falchion.space

Have a happy holiday everyone!

-Brent
