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.

"Thank you for stopping by so promptly," Harper began, taking a seat across from Liam. "Officially, I am expected to make sure everyone's psychological evaluations are up to date, but really, I just like to get to know people. Serving aboard the Norton isn't your typical ship of the line.…

Diziara stalked out of the security office, her face set into a deep scowl. She'd gotten hijacked by brass to get the Torchwood pilots settled into Erebus—which admittedly wasn't entirely a bad thing because they had needed the reassurance—but when she was able to make her escape with Corey's help,…

The team moved out of the treeline into the clearing that held the ship. The vessel was ringed by boulders of what the stealth suit HUD was identifying as raw tritanium ore, and large tree branches were draped over it to obscure it from the sky.

With a quick dash,…

Alleira sat in her office stroking the Bobcat who had sidled his way in from her quarters next door. He shouldn't have been in there but she generally didn't mind. Of course when official business was taking place Sphinx was most certainly restricted to quarters. And it seemed like he…

Cheem moved through the trees, watching the tracks of the plow bird that had escaped. He'd drawn the short twig when the plow animal had slipped away, and while his friends stayed with the herd, he was sent into the trees.

It felt like he'd been walking forever, though judging…
