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.

"Fifteen men on a dead man's chest," Noah sang as he paced down the corridor of the new Pelican.

"Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum," squawked Jackson Polly from Noah's shoulder.

"Drink and the Devil had done for the rest," Noah continued.

Fearne reflected on her day as she headed back towards the modest crew quarters she shared with Kaeriss. It had been a good day. Her previous confusion at the layout of the new ship was behind her, she had nailed every Patrol route and correctly located every landmark both large…

Rao had been to a counselor's before, of course. But there was something about showing up someplace new that was daunting to him. He was starting to become anxious for the ship to start feeling like home.

Everything about this ship was different. This ship was brand new. The newest…

Fresh from space dock and brand-spanking-new the halls of the Joshua Norton B were the very epitome of Starfleet order and cleanliness. Spotless and mark-less walls showed no wear from the passage of years, the regulation carpet was for the most part unworn being too new to have given up…
