In the aftermath of the Hobus Supernova, the fractured Romulan Star Empire led to significant voids of power. The turmoil of factions and warlords posed a significant threat to Federation Safety. A series of attacks against neutral zone bordering federation colonies lead to Starfleet increase militarized border patrols. The Aquarius, the namesake for a new light escort was one of those. Originally designed to compliment the planned Odyssey Class flag cruiser, was one such vessel moved to shore-up federation interests.
Assigned their first patrol mission, the crew of the Aquarius are sent to investigate cargo traveling in and out of the neutral zone when they discover a Wallace Class Patrol Craft adrift in space.
Sometimes the burden of life gets in the way. Certainly for many of us the stresses COVID has placed on us have taken their toll. Personally I know that the inability to travel has caused no end of pain in terms of writing. The Aquarius is not going away, I am using my first opportunity to truly holiday in nearly 2 years to re-energise how I operate this sim.
More details to come.

I think the saying, "Hindsight is 2020" will induce PSTD for at least a generation after the year that was. As we close out the 2nd Quarter of an Active USS Aquarius, I smile at what is ahead. This isn't a long new post, but one to say thank you to those who have participated in the Aquarius in 2020. May 2021 bring better fortune for all.Read More
So I've been fairly quiet in public announcements since launch but it's been a fairly successful quarter to date. We're setting at 5 posts with over 4000 words contributed and a few more weeks left before we can count our first 3 months over.
We recently welcomed Lieutenant Command Greener as First Officer and Senior Chief Kade as our Chief of the Boat and I formally use this news item to welcome them.
In the next month we will see us transition from our kick off into our first formal mission, stay tuned for more info.
Welcome to the USS Aquarius - NX 97033! I am proud to announce we are now live. In the coming days from the date of post of this news item, our kick off pre-mission will be live, allowing players to post.
This last few weeks have been a mammoth effort of all founding members. We have gone from a concept, to a fully fledged sim. I am a mix of proud, thankful and excited for what is becoming.
The Aquarius is a 323 rated sim, with a "the lower decks" feel. We build upon the backstory given in Picard Season 1, to realise what
it might be like patrolling a sector of space around the Romulan Neutral Zone, building upon Warlords trying to mark their claim to the territory, the effects of the fractured Empire and the turmoil experienced by displaced Romulans; what it might look like and why ultimately by 2399 there was limited to no Federation Presence out there.
Fulson Miller, former Ensign in Starfleet sighed deeply, the drugs they had filled his body with had calmed the raging inferno in his brain. Whilst the events of the past few weeks were still a bit of a blur to him there were a few things that had permeated the…Read More
Angus traversed narrow corridor of the Vashon bound for main Engineering. He hadn't had a good night sleep. Concern over the ships lack of Warp flight was plaguing him; in addition, the continuation of the sensor grid to show unexplainable anomalous blips. Long range communications had also started to become…Read More
Angus yawned again as he sat in the 8th and final hour of his watch cycle. It had been several hours since he had taken a break mid watch. View screen filled with the starfield profile of warp wasn’t helping. Still 2 days from the start of their patrol route,…Read More
Looking out across the sea of people, Angus spotted his Officer of the Deck, Petty Officer Sienna ‘Swain’ Lin, approaching. The last supper was a fun affair, for Bryd and Chaplin, it had been a ritual across many years, and one that Lin looked forward too across her last year…Read More
Tapping the padd against his, Angus walked the bustling Starbase 10 for the last time before the Vashon’s departure after repair and resupply. The ship was headed out for month long deployment patrolling one of the middle region patrol routes. Reports had been much the same the past few months,…Read More
