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.

Cillian's room mate hadn't arrived on the ship yet, so he was taking the opportunity to let Dusty out of her cage and get used to the new space before he did. She'd been out of her cage for a good twenty minutes and had a sand bath, and now…

Whistling drifted down the corridor in two tones—one a little higher than the other—in the style of the old Earth song Drunken Sailor. The higher pitched whistle was rougher, occasionally out of tune and out of step, but the other whistling continued as if the high pitched whistle was of…

Azure eyes peered through their hairless lids. A chemical reaction crept through his nerves, a little electrical signal pulsing from a brain to the muscle. It made his muscles contract, a grin revealing his ivory whites. Ivory whites that had been covered in some fluidic substance that had been pressed…
