Welcome Aboard The USS Joshua Norton

Applications temporarily closed, please join our discord to be informed when they're open again!

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.

Ludwig had divided his attention during the trip between assisting Lem in monitoring Lakkari's condition, bemoaning the loss of his pre-Nova Romulan Ale, and being thankful his mother hadn't convinced him to bring the antique Viola with him on this assignment. The electric unit that had been in his quarters…

Sarik couldn't sleep.

This in and of itself wasn't unusual. Since he'd been moved into the palace and given his own suite, he had been on edge. He was used to a simple life, a life that could be packed into one bag and relocated with only a few minutes…

"Lovelace to Turing, this is Persephone. Come in Daphne." Amelia waited for Lexil to accept the hail.

Over in the Turing, Lexil had run the same lifeform scans as on Lovelace, which made the distant explosion and the corresponding scan results indicating the ship had been destroyed less difficult to…

"I'm sorry Captain, I just can't cut through this interf–" Sienna started to say as the computer interrupted with its pre-recorded message.

"All crew report to escape pods for evacuation, this is not a drill."

As they reached a junction, Costello only able to tell by the light of Mayoko's torch and the change in stature of her silhouette. The deck plating felt strange suddenly beneath his hands, and in the torchlight ahead it looked like there were grey droplets floating up towards the ceiling.…
