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.

Fen didn't report to sickbay like the rest of the away team after they'd secured the drive. Instead they went to the R&D lab, to run a full diagnostic. They downloaded the data packet, but the next priority was self care. The full scale diagnostic took a good few minutes,…

Throbbing. A dull pound at the back of the head which nagged Mayoko back into consciousness in a way that was so uncomfortable it simply couldn't be ignored. As her brain started to wind up again it occurred to Mayoko that moving her head from the hard surface it was…

Ensign Borom sat at the helm while Lieutenant Jarkil took a meal break, monitoring the course laid in by the lieutenant before he'd left the bridge. While it wasn't the most direct route out of Cardassian space, it did avoid various checkpoints and high traffic areas that increased the chance…
