Making the universe a better place, one tech problem at a time.

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...

» Overlapping Roles

Posted on Sat Oct 25th, 2014 @ 4:25pm by Captain Ariel Ostheimer in General News

Hello, all!

I've noticed that there have been some confusion of late regarding some elements of this mission. Specifically, confusion in terms of what the specific duties are of any given officer, and why, in some cases, one task is tackled by two different officers with two different (yet similar) roles.

Allow me to explain a few things:

Firstly, Whenever I make a plot I take every effort to include everyone in it, in some way, shape, or form. I don't want anyone to be left out of anything. Thus, to allow everyone to play a part, I sometimes have to place individuals in a situation where they might not usually be, or place two individuals with similar roles in the same situation, adding some redundancies.

I realize now that in doing so, I've probably stepped on a few toes. For this apologize, and I will make every effort to make the roles more distinct from now on. (Obviously in some cases it'll probably be inescapable. For example, an operations officer will almost always be working in tandem with engineering, because the two fields are so closely linked.)

All the same, it is my duty to make sure that everyone is happy. Is it impossible for me to do this? Perhaps. But I will, none the less, at all times, strive to achieve this. So, if you have any concerns, or anything you'd like to add/amend, let me know. I'm here to help.

Posted on Fri Oct 24th, 2014 @ 2:14pm by Lieutenant Zamiel ch'Anidem M.D. in General News

In my off time, I have been creating new Wiki pages. These pages are designed to have a brief history and usage information on the various technologies and equipment used by Starfleet. The hope of these pages are to have all of us more familiar with what type of clothing or equipment is at our characters disposal. Please feel free to comment or send me a PM if you want to help me set more like wiki pages up.

So, if you look at the main menu above, you'll notice the 'Mess Hall'. This will link you to a chat box specific for the site. Here you can discuss plot ideas with everyone else, without having to start 'mission posts'. It will also allow for everyone to contribute ideas and the like, and have general discussions.

I've been seeing a lot of chatter happening as OOC tags at the bottom of posts. Soo, here's a way for everyone to talk together. ^_^

Have at it!

Hello, all~!

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

Once everyone had left, Ari sighed, pushing her chair back far enough so that she could lean back properly and prop her feet up on the briefing room desk.

Vien snorted. "Fitting. Though I suppose I should get to work on that deflector and tractor beam."

An engineer came up to Vien and said, "Sir, most of the repairs are done, but gravitational harmonics are giving us trouble on Deck 19."

Vien frowned. "What kind of trouble?"
