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.

Veda made her way into the small mess hall and hit the replicator for a large mug of raktajino. Switching between night and day shifts always left her lagging, but the Klingon coffee always seemed to pull her through. As she turned from the replicator, taking her first sip of…

Liam turned off his fifth training video of the day, simply unable to absorb any more information. He rubbed his face with his hands and wondered if his onboarding would ever end. He needed to go for a walk.

Still very new to the ship, Liam didn't even know where…

Amelia hadn't wanted to take over the mess hall for the briefing, and there'd been too many people needing to be included to fit everyone in the small ready room, so she took over the holodeck. A round table with a glossy black surface sat in the center of a…

Amelia slumped on the couch in her quarters, scratching absentmindedly at Mikey's neck as she stared at her bat'leth where it hung on the wall. She'd read Dragomirov's report on Cillian's injuries and it appeared he was going to be fine, but she was angry at herself for not being…

Veda had spent the remainder of her shift analyzing everything she and Cillian had said to each other. She'd thought about it as she'd told Lem about the concussion, while she was filling out the report and updating his medical records, and some more as she reflected on why she…
