Welcome Aboard The USS Joshua Norton

There is a department within Starfleet that is tasked with collecting and analyzing sensitive data that matters, planning and executing time-critical covert and overt operations, and safeguarding the secrets of the United Federation of Planets from internal and external threats to keep us all safe. Who are we? Starfleet Intelligence.

Certain assignments, however, cannot appear on standard mission dockets, carried out in secret by the best of the best for no fame, thanks, or recognition. They are the true heroes of the Federation, specialists in their field, operating from the shadows. They are Clandestine Operations.

Political landscapes are shifting, the Romulan Empire is rebuilding, terror cells are striking at the very heart of our society. For neutralizing such threats, Clandestine Operations recognized the value of a multi-disciplined team of operatives primed to respond. The crew of the USS Joshua Norton is one such team - they have seen what you can offer, and they've requested you join them.

The USS Joshua Norton is a Nova based collaborative writing Star Trek Sim. Set on a Defiant class refit, specifically designed for specialized Clandestine Operations use, the Emperor (as she's affectionately known by crew) is set in 2416. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the command team by emailing: command (at) sfintel (dot) space or join the Discord server linked in the menu.

Nadiv was the first to the transporter room, tugging at the neck of his EV suit as he stepped through the opening door. They weren't wearing the 'Starfleet Intelligence Combat Operations Stealth Suits' but standard issue environmental suits. As far as the locals were aware, they were a medical aid…

Rao was nonplussed. He had no business on the bridge and had little idea of how he might offer to contribute there. But when your section commander sent you to make yourself useful, you went to make yourself useful.

The crew on duty on the bridge had little idea of…

The working dinner with Div had gone well, and after he'd left, Amelia pinged Kate. The two of them weren't at the point of sharing quarters yet—though the Captain's quarters on this ship were large enough for it—particularly because Kate was still just a little bit on that unstable ground…

Though this dinner was a working dinner, it wasn't on duty per se, so Amelia decided to ditch her uniform. Either Div would awkwardly show up in his, or he'd likewise want out of the damn thing himself, but either way Amelia had enough of hers for the day. Instead…

Genevieve exhaled slowly as she stared out her viewport holding a mug of warm raktajino in her hands. She could admit, if only to herself, she was feeling a bit nervous and a bit embarrassed as a result. In some ways, the feeling struck her as somewhat illogical. After all,…
