Obsidian Command

OC_2023.svgConflict has been more prevalent in Starfleet than exploration for the last thirty years. The peaceful ideal of exploration, while still at the heart of every Starfleet officer, has been tempered by the reality of the galaxy they live in. The Borg, the Cardassians, the Dominion, the Romulans. There’s been no shortage of enemies who wished to see the end of Starfleet and of the Federation and despite being victorious time and time again, Starfleet once more finds itself at the edge of conflict. Looking in and wondering when they’ll get back to being explorers.

The 9th ‘Obsidian Fleet’ stands at the edge of Federation space; a staging point for Starfleet, a beacon of the Federation for the local inhabitants, and a bastion against the oncoming conflicts of the sector. Deep in the Loki system, orbiting the the planet Obsidian III, is the Stardock class starbase known as Obsidian Command. From this vantage, the Joint Fleet Command sees to the leadership of the 9th Fleet and serves as the rally point for them all.

In 2395 unexplained forces drew the entirety of the Starbase into a spatial void. Crew were evacuated, supplies jettisoned and only a skeleton crew remained. Their job was to try to discover what had drawn the starbase into this void and, more importantly, manage a way to return the Station back to real space. In its absence, the sector was thrown into disarray. The balance of power between the Federation, the Romulans, and the Typhon Pact was thrown into chaos. For eighteen months this chaos continued before somehow, miraculously, the USS Vesta discovered the skeleton crew of the Starbase reaching out and devised a way to bring the Starbase back to normal space. Upsetting the balance once more, only this time in favor of the Federation.

Obsidian Command is once more the home to scientists, explorers, diplomats, warriors, shopkeepers, and the civilian families that come along with that. Here, you can find yourself face to face with the your worst enemy, or spend hours aimlessly wandering the shops and stalls of the Promenade. If you’re looking for an adventure, a quiet place to open your shop, or anything in-between, then Obsidian Command is the place for you. Join us today, and be a part of history.

Admiral Brigid Harshman didn’t like the office she’d commandeered from the station’s chief diplomatic officer. The window didn’t look out into space, but over the Environment Ring. Serious starfleet officers should want to see the starfield outside their window to put everything into perspective, not some farcical forest in space.…

The room was quiet for a very long moment, only the sound of Ernesh hefting himself from his seat broke the silence; the Grazerite tilted his head in deference before he left. As it had been two hours since breakfast, Gordon suspected his friend was most likely heading for brunch.…

Moon left early that morning, even before Rice had poured himself a cup of coffee. A quick kiss and then she was out the door. He was proud of the effort she was putting in at her shop, although he missed what had been the routine of eating breakfast together.…

Brek had been jogging among the trees for something like 3 minutes. A personal record - since there was actually no one running after him - when he got a fright. A hooded figure lurked at the edge of his vision, tall and menacing. At least, that was the interpretation…

Now that the Pathfinder had a course laid in for the station, Calliope had left Lieutenant Koroushi in charge of the Bridge so she could get a look at things below decks. She’d gotten a quick overview of the situation from the Engineer’s Mate and found Engineering had their hands…
