Welcome to the USS Eminence!

We are currently on assignment to a distant location in the Beta Quadrant. No Starship has been in this area for over 100 years. Please join us as we seek out new adventures!

Please Note, The USS Eminence is a slow posting ship. As a crew member, you are expected to post one every 12-14 days. The ship will usually have a Joint Post Pending. You, as a crewmember, may join that post, or you may put up your own post. Joint Posts with other members will also meet the general requirements. Welcome aboard!

The USS Eminence is a Picard-era Star Trek role play set in the year 2399. She is a Saber-class scout/patrol vessel assigned to work in the former border areas with the Romulans, although she is not always locked into Romulan-based missions. This sim starts out a few months prior to the events of Star Trek: Picard.

Hello Everyone

Appologies for the delays in getting this first mission started. Both myself and the XO work in the NHS and have both suffered with the strain of our IRL workloads.

I hope the basis of the shakedown and mission will give everyone plenty to do during this first mission.

Happy to give guidance on anything if anyone has any questions on what to expect during the mission. Feel free to pop me a message as needed.

Good Day Eminence!

So it's been a strange couple of weeks. Unfortunately we lost a couple of members. I was asked by the Admiral to step up and take the helm of the Eminence which I was happy to do.

We have an excellent timeline to play with and a great new frontier to work towards. I'm excited to see it come together.

I'd like to welcome the new members to our crew, feel free to shoot me a message if you want to set up a joint post. Our XO will be arriving soon.

I will be retaining Aliss as an NPC on the Eminence for now and I will be posting our new captains arrival soon.

Finally I would like to through a salute up to Fleet Admiral West and wish him well in his retirement, and a loud congratulations to Admial Star who has been appointed as the new Commander-in-Chief for IDF.
