Stella In Tenebris

In 2409, after four years of open warfare, the Federation is slowly losing its fight against the Klingon Empire. As options begin to dwindle, Starfleet starts to consider contingency plans. One of these contingencies is Project Somnambulis, which is conducting a search for a group of millennia-old artifacts that could possibly be used as a weapon against the Klingon Empire… or any future aggressors.

The U.S.S. Galahad NCC-78021-A — a newly constructed Gagarin-class battlecruiser originally intended to bolster Starfleet’s complement of combat ships — is assigned to Project Somnambulis to aid in its search for the artifacts. Equipped with a cyclical quantum slipstream drive, the Gagarin cruisers were designed to be quickly deployed to the frontlines, making them among the fastest ships in the fleet. Coupled with the class’s impressive armament, this makes Galahad the ideal ship to carry out Project Somnambulis’s mandate in far flung, dangerous corners of the galaxy where other ships are unsuitable.

Greetings everyone and welcome to the new Galahad sim!

A warm welcome and thank you to all the new members who have joined recently. I am looking forward to writing some exciting adventures with you as we prepare to kick off the sim.

As you might have seen, some posts have already been published to the Prologue mission. I've asked everyone during their application to submit a sample post as an introduction of their character. Please feel free to publish these posts to the Prologue mission once your character has been accepted.

Prologue in itself is not a linear mission with a plot, but more a collection of posts to introduce your character. The mission will remain active alongside other missions to allow you to post backstories that provide more insight into your character before they joined Galahad, should you wish. Any posts set before Galahad's launch on 240903.03 may be published there.

While I put the finishing touches on our first proper mission and finish up some site details, you can post your introduction posts (if you haven't done so already) and also any other posts you would like to leading up to the launch. I'll also be contacting each of you in the next few days for joint posts to have the CO meet your characters.

Galahad is currently docked at Starbase 621 (Tzenketh Sector, Alpha Quadrant) near Cardassian and Tzenkethi space. Ideally your characters should arrive between 240902.01 and 240902.28.

If you have any questions, or if you're stuck for writing ideas, please don't hesitate to ask.

Happy writing!

Your GM,

"We meet again." Scott said with a smile as he approached the young woman seated upon a hard chair pushed against the corridor wall.

"Hello." Tabitha replied matching him smile for smile when she recognised him. "Take a seat...there might be a wait." She indicated the door bearing the Executive…

"You're a new Doctor then?" Tabitha said making conversation to pass the time.

"That's right...and you're a..."

"Counselor," they said the word simultaneously and smiled.

"This is my first ship." Tabitha volunteered. "...it's different isn't it."

Different from what exactly wasn't stated.

"She's a Battle Cruiser," Scott replied as though…

Summary: Tabitha is reunited with something she values.


With her eyes closed and head tilted back, Tabitha stood on the tide line soaking up the warmth of the sun, the freshness of the breeze, the sound of seabirds and the sea itself.

{Perfect} she thought lowering her head as…

Sarissa stood looking at her new home, the new USS Galahad looked like a formidable ship hopefully one that would put up a good defence against the Klingons. Making her way up the gangway she had to pass the security check in before finally getting herself onboard, heading for her…

Commander Emmanuelle Larose was one of very few people who wasn't hurt.

The attack on Starbase 24 left hundreds dead and thousands injured. The evacuation ships brought injured Starfleet personnel and civilians alike to a few places, one of which was nearby Vega Colony, whose hospital was magnificent. Uninjured…
