Captains Ready Room
Fleet Captain David Shotton

Welcome to the Saracen! I'm Dave and the CO of this Pendragon Class Battle Cruiser set in the Prime Timeline, in the year 2396.

The ship has 10 years of history behind it and promotes quality writing and character development. Our Sims encourage a focus on adventure, responding to threats to the Federation and problem solving in ways that only this awesome crew of creative writers can.

We require that writers wishing to apply to the Saracen provide a character biography, and this is reviewed by the CO and XO before a writer is accepted to the Roster. You can find me on Discord as Keivar, and my email is always open.

Sim Notes:

The USS Saracen is contacted by Command to investigate several unknown signals coming from the Betreka Nebula, right between Cardassian and Klingon space.

    Alert Status

    Commanding Officer: Captain Dante Knight
    With the Saracens Refit complete, we are about to depart for our next mission. The ship has had our 10 year Anniversary, and with updated systems and new engines, is ready for the next decade.
    Chief Intelligence Officer: Commander Daniel 'DaVinci' Colter
    The Betreka Nebula has seen some friction in the past between the Cardassians and Klingons. Does Intelligence have anything they can share about the region?
    Executive Officer: Commander Adam Threwn
    With the Saracen departing for a potentially dangerous area of space, the new XO needs to come to grips with his people quickly.

    Chief Operations Officer: TBA
    Chief of Security: Lieutenant Ush'ast Rah-Triton
    Newly assigned to the position after the events around Earth, our Half-Klingon Security Chief needs to find her rhythm in her new role on this Battle Cruiser. Especially when the other half of her species might be involved...

    Chief Tactical Officer: Lieutenant Elmira O'Shea
    Open the hatches and load the cannons! Things might just get bumpy and the new computer upgrades might need to be worn in.
    Chief Engineer: Lieutenant Commander Jarred Alindor
    The ship needs to be brought to power and ready to leave the station. With the conditions in the Nebula unknown, we might need all the power we can spare and those new engines need to be reliable.

    Chief Science Officer: Lieutenant Teller Graham
    Science will be at the fore on this one, these signals should be right up the Science Divisions alley.
    Chief Medical Officer: Lieutenant Natasha Knight
    Lets hope for a nice, simple scan and map. Shoot some beamy things at some signally things, and everyone can be safe and sound without needing experimental medical treatments.

    Counselor: Lieutenant Commander Royal Sinclair
    With many new crew and people finding their feet on the ship, the Counselor will have some work to do. Luckily, all he really does is talk...
