Welcome to the U.S.S. Archimedes, a unique, prototypical engineering variant of the Prometheus class. As such, the Archimedes has all the hallmarks of the Prometheus class (regenerative shielding, ablative hull armour and, of course, the multi-vector assault mode), plus a little bit extra. We've scrapped the marine division and the Starfighters to make room for more labs, perfect for all the scientists and engineers out there.
The Archimedes is part of a specialized division of Starfleet known as the SCE, or, Starfleet Corps of Engineering. So if you're looking for a sim with a focus on science and technology, you're in the right place! The Starfleet Corps of Engineers are renowned throughout the galaxy as individuals with brilliant minds and exceptional skill in the creation, manipulation and maintenance of technology. If you feel as though you fit the bill, have a look around...

First: I want to comment on the sudden BOOM in activity on the ship. LOVING IT. I've started school again and can barely keep up, there's so much of it (and I assure you that this is a VERY GOOD THING!). Thank you all for everything you're doing. The plot is made so much richer through your collective contributions.
Second: I have already (!) received a few award nominations (awesome, awesome!), nominating your fellows for various things. Keep 'em coming! Just to let you all know, however, I usually post all awards and promotions at the end of the mission. Promotions are all done IC , (through a JP with Ari), while awards are given out OOC (usually). So, just to let you all know that I have indeed seen them, I just probably won't be announcing anything until the end of this mission arc. However, if I continue to get a significant volume of nominations, then I'll post up some awards early (at the end of this month, or at the beginning of the next).
Third: I am still open to suggestions regarding personal plot arcs occurring within this current mission. I have it all, more or less, hashed out, but, I'd like to get in something special for everyone, (NPCs included).
Also, if you've already spoken to me regarding the above, but you want to adjust/change your plans (or you just want to remind me again), let me know!
That's all for now.
Commander (*cough*, correction: Captain!) Ari

So, before I get too deep in terms of planning this mission of ours, I'd like to get your input. There's enough space (pun intended) for me to play around and add some extra little details here and there for you, my lovely crew.
So! If there's a personal plot arc that you'd like to see from your character, let me know! I'd love to include it into my plans.
Everyone deserves to be the hero at some point!
So, drop me a PM with any ideas you may have.

As many of you have already done over the course of our continuing JP, please join me in welcoming Lieutenant JG Jasper Paris to our ship. He's taking on the role of one of our science officers - an important position indeed considering that we're a science/engineering sim.
Welcome, aboard, Jasper!

In the interest of recruitment, I've started something of an affiliation program for the Archimedes.
As you can already see, we're currently affiliated with the USS Jefferson (a TF sim run by our own Ieuan), and E.L.F, an RP forum based in the universe of the anime 'Fairy Tail'.
As you can see, the site can be affiliated with even non-Star Trek sims. So, if you want to affiliate with us, please send me a PM.

I've just returned from a surprise summons to my grandmother's home on Betazed. What she said to me was far more startling and disturbing than the fact that she summoned me in secrecy. When I reached Medisea, I was immediately sequestered from the…
