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.

When Brighid had seen that the Joshua Norton had not one, but two, photonic officers, she'd raised an eyebrow. Of course she'd heard of Project Torchwood, no one in intelligence hadn't at this point since Admiral Waterhouse and Captain Diziara had managed to wheedle their way in with Commodore Akoro…

The event of the first Romulan visit to Wheathampstead might have been an occasion for the history books. As it was, two Starfleet officers had made their way through the streets of the village and inside an old 1930s semidetached house with no notice paid or comment given. Fearne Popples…

The debriefing, there was that word again, left Lia feeling drained. While nothing like the brutal interrogations she was used to in the Romulan Navy or Declared Dead, it still left her questioning some of the things that had happened. it was time perhaps to leave many of her memories…

The sounds of animated chatter crept into the bedroom, walked loudly across the floor with ever-growing boldness and entered Mayoko's world via her ears, waking her from a deep sleep just as rudely and effectively as if she had been taken by the shoulders and shaken. They were not welcome.…
