Welcome Aboard The USS Joshua Norton

There is a department within Starfleet that is tasked with collecting and analysing 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 play by email 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 public telegram chat linked in the menu.

Alex was dressed in a Starfleet uniform for the first time in a long time. He didn't normally get to go out in the field; a fact which bothered him frequently. This was different though, this required help outside of his organisation. People that wouldn't be involved in whatever it…

London, more specifically the Federation Archive, was an unassuming building in the heart of Whitehall. But as with most things connected to his organisation, it held secrets. Alex stepped through the doors and into the sprawling lobby. Like he did most days he was visiting the office he strolled across…

The modified Starfleet scout vessel approached the last known destination of the USS Shield at high warp. While it didn't have a cloaking device due to its size, it did have advanced hull playing making the small and agile craft difficult to pick up on sensors. The Akira class ship…
