NCC - 86105

Welcome to Starbase Versailles

Here on Starbase Versailles we serve a number of purposes. Versailles sits at a pivotol point within the Beta Quadrant - at the nexus or near nexus of the three major powers: the Federation, the Romulan Empire and the Klingon Empire. As such, the station is a hub of activity both politically and economically. Additionally, the federation border defense network is housed out of Versailles and with forces stretched thin after recent conflicts, the border defense network has been reinforced with crew from the Imperial Xeno Legion and is comprised of individuals from major and minor worlds of all 4 quadrants. Versailles is also responsible for oversight of the Federation colony on YaDalla - a planet that has seen its fair share of strife.

1. Message from the General
===============================

Hey All,

Welcome to the first Sim Report we've had on Versailles in a while. Things were a little slow around Xmas, but you can see our log count has picked up since then, and I wanted to celebrate by showing people just how much great work has come out of this station since new years.

Since sim reports in the past have often seemed somewhat bloated to me, I've reduced the contents to the bits that people have seemed the most interested in in the past (including myself). If anyone doesn't see a bit that they liked, or thinks a part could be safely dropped, feel free to drop me a line.

These Sim Reports will now be going out once every three months, or thereabouts. Keep an eye open for next one some time in July. I may even put the next one at the end of June, so we can settle into a neat 3, 6, 9, 12 schedule. That way you guys also get a midwinter Sim Report, which is an added Xmas bonus. :)

Lastly, I should probably also mention that 5th Fleet has introduced a logging minimum. From now on you should expect command teams to produce a minimum of one log a week, so no change from me (*grins*). From the members, I ask that you churn out at least one log a month. This includes JLs. People who go a month without a log will be advised that we have noticed, and after two months we will be discussing the matter in council.

If you feel unable to log with that level of reliable frequency, either in the long or short term, please contact me or Amanda Bleetman (Puppy) and we will work with you to figure out a plan that works for everyone. We don't want to be in a position where people simply vanish off the face of the earth without telling anyone.

But we have some good news mixed in with all this doom and gloom. The next plot has begun, we can all say hello to two old friends (Nixon and Aza) who have returned and contributed logs and new characters to our merry little melange, and plans are already afoot to spread word of our merry band far and wide. Woohoo!

And with that, I bid you adieu.

Log well and be merry.

Best Regards

Brigadier General Jonathon Grey
Commanding Officer
Versailles

2. Logging Summary
===============================

The subtle forces of Omega wreathed the four quadrants in terror and uncertainty as they plied their trade; destabilising the major players by striking at trade routes and messing with smaller civilisations. By leaving no trace, fear turned to blame, and the major players were drawn to the brink of conflict.

The efforts of Omega eventually culminated in the detonation of a Chroniton Bomb; causing the very fabric of time to warp and disintegrate. Admiral Cerywyn, along with her Time Ship and the majority of the IXL fleet, sacrificed the last 14 months in order to stop the destruction; replacing all trace and memory of her for the last 14 months on Versailles.

In the amended present, the crew now recalls Commodore Kraat'Loss taking over from Cerywyn 14 months ago, before retiring last week. As for Omega, they were assumed destroyed in 2399, and never resurfaced.

The amended present is no bed of roses, however. Disaster has struck YaDalla, and earthquakes are causing devastation on a global scale! StarFleet has been called to reinforce the overwhelmed emergency services, but things are already spiralling out of control!

Can our intrepid heroes show up in time to save the day?

Note: All NPCs and secondary characters have had their logs added to the number for their owner's primary character.

Also, dashes mean the character did not exist until their first log, so they get auto-excusal for the previous months, as well as a medal for respecting the principles of linear time.

» New Plot Has Begun!

Posted on Fri Apr 27th, 2018 @ 11:57pm by Sails-at-Dawn Mr in Sim Announcement

Hi All!

As you may have guessed from the title, the new plot is officially underway.

The "Shake the roof" log will give you a feel for YaDalla, along with descriptions of some landmarks you can use and a vague description of the regions to get you started.

The "Announcements" log contains some department-specific stuff you can use if you want, though ultimately I want this plot to be as open as it can possibly be. I don't want anyone feeling they have to wait for anyone else before they feel they can log.

This planet has everything, including (but not limited to) deserts, treehouses, skyscrapers, high tech, low tech, swampy marshlands, mining companies, looters, rapists, murderers, injured people, dead people, panicked people, hero people (medical, security, have-a-go, etc), soulless corporate types, mercenaries hired by rich annoying people, and thousands upon thousands of people desperately fleeing for their lives.

Oh, and don't forget the underwater bases, plural. We've got Kamino down there, people!

Other than the two NPCs I named (the Governor and her aide), go nuts. I'm on Discord every day if you want to run stuff past me or Puppy (XO).

I hope people enjoyed the plot logs, cause now it's your turn. :)

Have fun!

Best Regards

Grey (Discord Sails, FB John Terary)

P.S. If anyone particularly sciency wants to be the one to discover why the earthquakes are happening, let me know and I'll send you the details. Even once fixed, there will still be devastation and aftershocks, so don't worry about spoiling the fun early. :)


» Nova - Yay or Nay?

Posted on Sun Apr 22nd, 2018 @ 1:21pm by Sails-at-Dawn Mr in General News

Hello All,

Today's question is a simple one; do any members have an objection to moving exclusively to Nova for log posting?

The council would love to do more work with the Timmis, and having us both use the same tool makes that easier.

Note that you can continue to use email to develop logs, we're only discussing using nova as a log posting and distribution system.

Best Regards

B General Jonathan Grey
CO
SB Versailles
(Discord: Sails)

P.S. I won't spoil things, but your warm and cuddly overlords in the Council are already fine tuning our next adventure and the transition to it, so stay tuned!


» Transfer of Command

Posted on Tue Apr 17th, 2018 @ 6:45pm by Sails-at-Dawn Mr in Sim Announcement

Hi All,

By now you'll have heard that Admiral Cerywyn has decided to step down as CO of Versailles, and that Captain Konuha will be leaving the XO post. We wish the former a peaceful retirement, and hope that the latter will continue to participate, perhaps in a less demanding role.

This means that both the CO and XO spots on Versailles were left open for a brief moment, and I am happy to announce that two willing volunteers have been found to fill them.

Both myself (Brigadier General Jonathan Grey) and your new XO (Captain Amanda Bleetman) are proud to serve as your new command team. I hope to meet you all soon, and that together we can show the galaxy that Versailles is here to stay.

Thank you for your time.

Best Regards

Brigadier General Jonathan Grey
Commanding Officer
USS Versailles

OOC: Your new CO and XO's Discord aliases are Sails and Puppy, respectively. :)
