Welcome to the USS Andromeda!

Welcome to the USS Andromeda. We are a Galaxy class ship under the command of Captain Jonathan Reynolds currently exploring beyond the Briar patch into uncharted territory in the Beta Quadrant.

The ship is currently assigned to Federation Star base 308 within the 16th Fleet. The star base was built ten years after the Enterprise E established contact with the Baku.

We are a PG-15 rated simm.

Its 20 years since the reunification of the Baku and So’Na. Medical advances have led to more Baku widening their horizons and venturing out beyond their planet but tensions still exist between these two races and there is much more to be explored in the beautiful and dangerous region of space deemed the Briar patch.

On this simm we intend to go back to the grass roots of Star trek - peaceful exploration, seeking out strange new worlds and new life. Boldly going further forward than ever before into the largely uncharted Beta Quadrant.

Come find a new online family of writers who value friendship, fun and a good creative and interactive story.

We welcome players of all levels of simming and have a variety of positions available.

Its been a while since I did a website update. Usually we get all our comms. in discord or the fleet but I need to welcome some new players and say some sad goodbyes to some Characters.

Current changes:

We welcomed both Lieutenant JG James Ryan Jr as our new Chief Ops Officer and Lieutenant JG Roger Harrison Jr as our new Assistant Chief Medical Officer.

I have tonight during this years Khitomer Conference done some advertising and I do have good intentions of updating the facebook page also.

We are currently closing down the mission Throught the Looking glass and moving on to some long awaited R&R at DS21

We sadly say our goodbyes to crewmen Michael Hawkins and Xu Chang Lau, our late CEO and COO. Luckily both writers are still with us just wanting a change in character.

Hi All

Well with a little help from the lovely Kate I have been playing around with some new manifests and tidying up positions.

We now have:

Andromeda Crew
The baddies
Agora Crossroads

I have moved round some NPCs to better suited positions.

Have a look through and if anyone feels they want any more adding I can sort that. Im sure they will also expand as our adventures continue!

Kind regards

» Post counts

Posted on 23 Jul 2020 @ 3:00pm by Captain Jonathan Reynolds in General News

Hi All

Just to advise there has been some changes to how posts are measured brought in by the fleet council.

Taken from the OF announcement:


Going forward the Fleet Council has voted that we will be measuring by words. There are many reasons for moving to this but the biggest one is simple some ships do massive posts of 5000 – 7000 words but they keep it together. It seems unfair as some Commanding Officers have different styles and that work should be recognised as they have spent weeks and weeks crafting something that they only have one post.

So going forward from August 1st 2020 every 500 words will act as a post so if you have a post of say 1500, it would class as three posts. What would not count under this change is signatures at the end of posts and posts used as a timeline.

We want to level the playing field and give everyone the same chance now as was requested in the survey from fleet members. We know going forward with the new version of Nova that we will have this ability at our fingertips but we have no idea how far off that all is or if everyone will be using Nova as we encourage other simming systems.

Please be aware everyone that each player is now expected to contribute a minimum of 1000 words a month.

Many thanks

Jonathan Reynolds
