“Steadfast against the darkness; for we are the sentinels of light”
The USS Sentinel is an Independence-class Heavy Frigate currently servings its five year mission to explore strange new worlds and discover new civilization. Follow our exciting new journey as we travel across the stars overcoming the harsh reality that is space, the final frontier.
Welcome to the Sentinel!
"You know the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, an irrational fear of the unknown. But there's no such thing as the unknown, only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood." - Captain Kirk
““We were born to be free, to expand our horizons by going where we have never gone before, and not to hang out in the relative comfort and safety of the nest, the known. There is a place within us that is courageous beyond our human understanding; it yearns to explore beyond the boundaries of our daily life.” – Dennis Merritt Jones
"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them."
Space isn't as small as it used to be, there are people and things out there willing to do us harm, we can't predict the future but we can prepare for it. You are our first and only line, we sleep well at night knowing you stand ready.
“Laughter is the best cure for many ailments, except perhaps for treating phaser burns that stuff hurts"
When all else fails the Doctor is in the house, the magicians of the crew; it is down to you to keep us fighting fit even when we can't manage it ourselves!
"Weve been surrounded by images of space our whole lives, from the speculative images of science fiction to the inspirational visions of artists to the increasingly beautiful pictures made possible by complex technologies. But whilst we have an overwhelmingly vivid visual understanding of space, we have no sense of what space sounds like"
We're more than just a spaceship flying through space, we are the ambassadors of scince and exploration. We're going to see things that will baffle the mind and it is down to your unified intelligence to make music from the choas!
"Engineers like to solve problems, if there are no problems handily available they will create problems of thier own."
Keep the lights on for when we're home because it's your job to keep this ship churning, there is no amount of pressure that is equivalent to what you do. When it comes to making sure we're at peak proficiency, the Captain will be turning to you.
“When the Gamemaster Smiles it's already too late!”
