Welcome to the U.S.S. Nightingale!

The Nightingale was a medical specialty sim that retired in the beginning of 2022 after several years of activity.

This website will continue to be operational to serve as a archive. Many of our characters have a history with or on the Nightingale and it would be a shame to see our stories get lost.

Ever since it’s conception the Nightingale has been run by a group of friend, ending with Kahless and me as the command team. Unfortunetly soon after the sims retirement Kahless became ill and hasn’t been able to write anymore. Another reason to keep this site online is to keep the memory of this amazing writer alive.

With regards,

Kate
Executive Officer of the Nightingale

Story Elements:

The struggling colony of Renewed Providence on Jouret IV has been hit with a hard case of Rigelian Fever, and the only known cure is a rare mineral ryetalyn, which cannot be replicated. A supply of the refined mineral has been shipped to Risa and loaded aboard the Nightingale so they can respond to the outbreak.

But a complication has developed. Something happened along the way, and the crew is just returning to consciousness with few memories of the last several days, or sometimes even who they are!

The crew have started to regain their memories and investigate what happened. Exotic energy from some alien devices. And the missing Captain Tejera may be implicated in the deaths of Starfleet crewmen!

Meanwhile, Captain Tejera appears to be willingly in the custody of an Orion pirate.
