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...

All sites are going to be migrating to a new server today. The sites will be down for an hour or two, perhaps three, as the migration occurs. If you find yourself unable to access the site for a bit, that's why.

See you all on the other side!

A great has passed today. Let us take a moment to remember Leonard Nimoy, Mr. Spock himself.

His final tweet nearly brought me to tears:

"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"


You will always be remembered.

Caleb melted into the kiss and his arms snaked around Mr. Williamson's neck. He hung on for dear life for what seemed like forever but was probably around three minutes. Then their kiss broke and Sean took his hand leading him back to the bedroom.

They spent two hours there,…

After his meeting with the Captain, stowing his gear and a quick lunch, Caleb took a shower and decided to go get his physical out of the way. Unlike some officers, he didn't mind them. He kept himself in decent shape, and really didn't expect any surprises.

Caleb was feeling pretty good at the moment. Better than he had felt in months. His meetings with both the doctor and the counselor had gone in unexpected directions. He still couldn't believe how each had played out. He'd opened up to the Klingon in a way he probably…
