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.

Rao entered the mess hall and glanced around tentatively. How much longer, he wondered, would he feel he was not supposed to be there? Out of place.

He ordered a bowl of spiced, boiled grain and beans with a side of balled melon and then looked for a seat among…

The doors into Cillian's new quarters slid open after he'd acknowledged the chime, and Veda walked in with a whistle.

"You are really moving up in the fleet. Solo quarters, I'm jealous." She passed by him long enough to drop a kiss on his cheek before she slowly paced around…

Footsteps echoed through the hallway accompanied by peels of laughter. Light spilled in through the broken door that was hanging at an odd angle, casting long shadows ahead of the children.

"Race you to the end of the hallway!"

"I'll leave you in the dust."

"Wait for me!"

Squeaking and…
