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.

Fearne hung back and studied her Klingon opponent. Klingons were always the hardest, or tended to be at least, partly for psychological reasons (they just looked scary), partly due to the swishing Bat’leth. Few other opponents had the propensity to carry so many and varied blade weapons as Klingons. You…

Finally retrieving her gear from storage, Lia made her way to the new assigned quarters. It was a good think she wasn't expecting luxury as this was two beds, a refresher cabinet (bathroom), and a small desk. She had her duffle bag slung over one shoulder, a hard case of…

Thal materialised on the transporter pad, and took a deep breath of Joshua Norton flavoured air. Being back here was interesting to say the least, but there had been plenty of crew changes since they'd last been posted here, so that was going to keep things fresh. They'd been studying…

The doors to the R&D lab opened to Ensign Kaya’s authorization and she ambled in, her fingers laced behind her head. She looked around, sighed and stretched. This ship was dramatically smaller than her last, so the lab had been easy to find; like much else, it was highly customized…

“Transporter room two.“ Fearne pointed to the door before the label came into view, testing herself as she did. “Yes!” The security crewman wasn’t sure she had this deck down, but it turned out quickly that she did. As one of only a handful of NCOs on Emperor and as…
