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 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.

The transporter beam released four figures in a small clearing. To the casual observer they looked like humanoid-birds, but hidden under the feathers were four Starfleet officers in stealth suits wrapped in holographic disguises. The one with green feathers—from almost yellow at her throat and chest to almost black with…

Corey knew he should probably put on his uniform and meet the base staff, but he wanted a moment to blend in with the civilians and just enjoy the arboretum before he had to be on duty again. Diziara had already disappeared into the bowels of Erebus to start prepping…
