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.

"Look at the brightly colored wispy little half-breed." The Klingon words rumbled above the drone of the crowd, and Amelia smirked as she turned in search of the man responsible. It wasn't hard to spot the knot of Klingons as they approached, and Amelia grinned wide.

"Think of me like…

"It is just a holoemitter." Noah loomed over the Romulan who stood stone faced in front of him.

"And the wrist band?"

"The controls for it. It's mostly artist tools — diagnostics for the materials I work with, measurements, and image capture. Occasionally I load decorative things in like this–"…

There were certain species in the quadrant from whom most people certainly would not like to receive the kind of threatening stare that Mayoko was currently enduring. Klingons for sure, perhaps Cardassians, certainly Nausicaans and most probably not... Romulans. Even with her training Mayoko was scared. But her self-preservation instincts…
