Welcome to the USS Pioneer


"One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To Strive, To Seek, To Find, and Not To Yield."
-Alfred Lord Tennyson-

(As inscribed on the dedication plaque of the USS Pioneer NCC-74757)


The year is 2396. In the aftermath of the Cardassian War, the relationship between Cardassia and the Federation has fundamentally shifted. Cardassia rebuilds as the Federation deploys Starfleet to serve and protect Cardassia and its colonies. Along with this rebuilding, came The New Maquis, and the Obsidian Order. These groups sought to destroy the peace in the sector.

Captain Tyler Malbrooke and the crew of the USS Pioneer have spent the past two years risking life and limb for this peace. They have travelled through time and back again. They have fought and bled for the preservation of their home, Empok Nor. Ultimately, the Pioneer emerged victorious. The Obsidian Order has fallen and the New Maquis has all but disbanded. That is when the new threat to Starfleet arose.

An old enemy begins to rumble. For quite some time the thought was that, the Romulans were no longer a threat. Since the Hobus star exploded the Romulan, empire has been in shambles. However, now they work on something they call the artifact, now they want to talk and now they come to the Federation open handed and for peace. What has changed? That is what the Pioneer is tasked with finding out.

This intrepid crew will learn all they can about the oldest and deadliest of enemies. The Pioneer finds itself in a battle between duty and honor. Exploration built the Pioneer, and molded the crew. However, the Federation and Starfleet wish to become more isolated to pull in on itself. This crew will have to prove to everyone what it means to seek out new lives, and civilizations. In short, their mission echoes their dedication plaque.

"USS Pioneer, To Strive, To Seek, To Find, and Not To Yield."

As part of their mission, the USS Pioneer joins the rest of Task Group 47 at Starbase Sirius to achieve this goal. Sirius stands on the frontier of Romulan space. Can Tyler and the crew prove that there are more friends than foes out here or will Starfleet pull them and the rest of the fleet back to Earth? If you think you have what it takes to face the enemy in these dark times, and NEVER YIELD then join the USS Pioneer as it enters its third season with the darkest stories we have told to date.

Join Captain Malbrooke as he continues the legacy of the Intrepid Class of ships.

On August 1st 2020 Obsidian Fleet held its annual Obsidian Day celebration. It was a fun filled day with some really good discussions. The highlight of the day was probably the guest appearances. Click the links to see who stopped by.

Q

Chancellor L'Rell


One of the events was the announcement of various awards. I am proud to say the the Gold Unit of Merit Award for the second quarter was awarded to the USS Pioneer. You guys have worked very hard to earn this. We continue to tell the stories we want to tell in the universe that we all love. I am humbled by your writing and your friendship. Thank you for allowing me to run this game.

» Party In Sick Bay

Posted on Tue Aug 4th, 2020 @ 7:30am by Captain Tyler Malbrooke in General News

The announcements continue as posting surges. Let's all keep up the great work and great stories. However, I am sure that none of you want to listen to my hot air and instead would like to see why I interrupted your day.

So without any gilding the lily and no further ado I give you a very special announcement.

Hermia O'Rourke - Hermia joined the Pioneer very soon after the sim was created. In that time I have watched this character grow. She has kept Sick Bay running and is always ready to patch you with a good med post. It is for this reasons and many more that I take pride in promoting Hermia O'Rourke to the rank of Lieutenant Commander with all of the rights and privileges therein. Hermia will also be appointed to the post of Chief Medical Officer of the USS Pioneer.

Keep up the great work Commander and I look forward to some great medical discoveries.

For Now
Steady As She Goes,

» Reason To Celebrate

Posted on Thu Jul 23rd, 2020 @ 8:23am by Captain Tyler Malbrooke in General News

Typically on the Pioneer we would wait until a mission closes before announcing promotions or awards. However, with all that is going on in the world right now I feel that a little happiness is warranted. Besides the ship is on Shore Leave at the moment so let's have a celebration. As we enter the dog days of summer, the stories heat up.

So without any gilding the lily and no further ado I give you a very special announcement.

Paul Michael - Paul has been with the Pioneer for over a year as the Assistant Chief Operations Officer. In that year I have seen the character grow and set roots on the ship. Rumor has it there may be wedding bells in this character's future. The Command Team of the Pioneer are believers in promoting from within, especially when it is earned. So when the CONN opened up it was a no brainier. It is with great pride that I promote Paul Michael to the rank of Lieutenant with all of the rights and privileges therein.
-Captain Tyler Malbrooke-



Keep up the great work Lieutenant. I look forward to smooth sailing and some great stories.

For Now

Congratulations are in order to the entire crew. Due to your hard work and storytelling the Pioneer has been granted the Silver Unit of Merit Award for the month of May.

But you don't have to take my word for it on how awesome you all are. Have a look at what Task Force 47 Commanding Officer Admiral Oliver Lancaster had to say about the Pioneer.

TasK Force 47 May Report

I continue to be amazed by each and every one of you. This sim is more than a game, more than a community, we are in our own way family. I am humbled and amazed to be your friend and GM.

Let's keep up the great work, and great stories. Gold here we come...
