Welcome to the USS Orion!

The USS Orion is a Galaxy-Class starship which proudly serves in the roleplay group Avalon Fleet during the year 2397. We are assigned to the area of Federation space near the Federation/Romulan border. Her mission is to bridge relations with several Romulan factions, promote peace through Federation strength and investigate an unexplored border region.

We are a 18+ age-rated sim set in the canon, post DS9-era of the Star Trek universe, that includes Star Trek: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. We do not use the new Star Trek movies or Star Trek: Discovery or Star Trek: Picard.

One constant in the universe is change. That holds true on the USS Orion as well. While some members have parted at various points, that has also allowed opportunities for new blood to be added to the mix! I'm super excited to welcome the following characters to the ship (just in time for our new multi-mission story arc):

Lieutenant Yipa Cirni
Chief Security/Tactical Officer

Lieutenant JG Kadin Ados
Assistant Chief Security/Tactical Officer

Lieutenant JG Chiara
Chief Science Officer

Lieutenant Savir
Chief Counselor

Ensign Carter Kehoe
Chief Flight Control Officer

The more officers involved in the story, the better it gets and that's especially true when the crew will be heading into an extremely dangerous situation that will test them and what they are willing to do in order to return to normal. How will the impending events change and affect them all?

Stay tuned to find out this Friday!

September Honorable Post Mention:
"Security Precautions"

Congratulations on this awesome post which has some really great dialogue between security and intelligence!

"Correct, an absence of evidence doesn't disprove a theory, ensign, but it isn't confirmation of a theory either. Without proof, all we have are theories; And Starfleet Intelligence doesn't make it's recommendations based on hunches or guesswork..." - Ensign Tiberius Augusta

I couldn't ask for a better crew to venture out into the unknown of the galaxy with. All of you have shown great dedication to this sim and writing awesome posts each other. The proof is in the pudding. The USS Orion has been awarded the Obsidian Fleet Task Force 72 Silver Unit of Merit for August! Excerpt follows:

It is my privilege to award the Silver UoM this month to the USS Orion. Great job and a hearty congrats to the Commanding Officer and all his crew; well done!!

“It was a difficult decision this month as many in 72-B have shown dramatic improvement in their ships as a whole. But as there can be only one winner, and the USS Orion showed themselves to be more than worthy of an award. They have a great sense of teamwork, they work well together and seem to be supporting each other to get involved in the storyline.” -Captain Rueben Gregnol

-Commodore Neil Harrington, TFXO Task Force 72

» August 2018 Monthy Sim Report

Posted on Mon Aug 27th, 2018 @ 2:15pm by Captain Logan Barrett in General News

Special Message

The USS Orion has reached six months of active simming! It just seems like yesterday when I decided to take the center chair and share stories with other Star Trek writers. It has been an amazing experience so far. I really enjoy creating a space for writers to collaborate and develop their own characters. Learning to run my own sim has been a big learning experience. I value it every day. I'm lucky to have the best crew in the fleet. All of you bring unique perspectives that all add up to a great ship! I look forward to writing more awesome adventures with all of you!

Sim Updates

The Orion website has undergone minor cleanup. The main page side bar links have been tidied up to remove irrelevant or useless links and the sister ships page has been revised and updated.

Crew Updates

There are no crew changes to report at this time. The position of Chief Counselor is open, as well as assistant chief medical officer. Sciences is open for specialties at this time.

Story Elements

The Orion continues to struggle to regain warp power to escape the surrounding region of space that is causing hallucinations. It's a race against time.

August Honorable Post Mention:

"Keep Your Friends Close"

Lieutenant T'Sai
Chief Intelligence Officer, USS Orion

Ensign Tiberius Augusta
Intelligence Officer, USS Orion

Colonel Loval
Tal Shiar Commander, Romulan Star Empire

Excellent post in which the Orion intelligence officers discuss the key Tal Shiar contact and then speak with him over subspace.
