Welcome to the U.S.S. Nightingale!

We are a Star Trek simm set in 2396 are a proud member of Obsidian Fleet’s Task Force 72.

The Nightingale is an Olympia class medical ship that has been tasked to take the ship and her crew to the rescue of those in need, to keep the light lit for those who need guidance and a safe haven. We provide for the medical needs of those in the far, remote corners of the Federation, respond to emergencies, and provide behind the lines support for Starfleet military operations with the most advanced medical technology in the Federation.

As a medical specialty simm, we want to provide a place for writers to explore their individual characters and give a supporting environment for their development and growth. We appreciate proactive players and invite their creativity and ideas for the development of plots and character arcs. Please let us know how we can aid you in your writing.

Take a look at the positions we have available. If you have any questions, contact us or join us on Discord.

» Word Counts

Posted on Fri Jul 10th, 2020 @ 9:42pm by Captain Tan'ato Tejera in General News

Hello, all! Word from on high is that going forward, simm activity will be judged by word count rather than post count. Every 500 words equals 1 post. That should benefit us a bit, as we tend to fewer posts, but longer. It's a bit more admin work for me for the monthly report, though. So it would help if tou could include word count at the bottom of the post after the signature. Signatures should not be included in the word count. Thanks!

Monthly CO Report USS Nightingale – June 2020

This month’s report is coming from me, Kate a.k.a. Neomi Verrill, the Nightingale’s Executive Officer. Tan had to take an unexpected LOA because of a family emergency. He should be back in a few days, so next month’s report should be done by him. In other words, don’t worry, me doing the report is a one-time thing. :D

Last month we’ve been busy behind the scenes. Not only have we been further planning our new mission, but we’ve also continue sending our JP’s for character development. The fleet also asked to do a roll call and except for 1 we got word back from everyone. Something we’re very happy and proud about.

As most of you probably know, the website has been handled by me. Per request of the fleet I’ve added something to our main site so our rating is clearly visible for people visiting the site. I’ve also linked a wiki page to it, so people can read a bit more information about our expectations. A number is just that, a number. Which can be interpret differently by people.

Then a little about our current mission: We have posted the first post of the new mission. A staff briefing explaining our new mission. Where the Nightingale is sent to Renewed Providence to assist in fighting an outbreak of the Rigellian fever. Highly deadly and virulent. Off course nothing goes as planned and the crew of the Nightingale faces many challenges to prevent most of the colony’s population dying.

Lastly some numbers, because who doesn’t love numbers.

Number of Active players: 10
Number of Lost players: 2
Number of Prospective players: 2
Number of NPC’s: 20

Number of Mission Posts: 10 (5 single count)
Number of JP’s in progress: 30 (of which 25 with activity in the last two weeks)

That’s it for this month’s edition of the CO report. Hope I didn’t forget anything.

With Love,

Kate

Kiernan Gallagher stood there, arms crossed at his chest, staring at the object that floated above the geology lab’s primary workstation. The computer had given him a decent approximation of the ore that was refined to make the drug ryetalyn. In its original form, the ore was just like any…
