Obsidian Command

Conflict has been more prevalent in Starfleet than exploration for the last thirty years. The peaceful ideals of exploration, while still at the heart of every Starfleet officer, hasbeen tempered by the reality of the galaxy they live in.The Borg, the Cardassian’s,the Dominion, theRomulans.There’s been no shortage of enemies who wished to see the end of Starfleet and of theFederation and despite being victorious time and time again, Starfleet once again 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 Starbase known as Obsidian Command. From here, the Joint Fleet Command sees to the leadership of the 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 - figure out what exactly had drawn the starbase into this void and, more importantly, how to get out. In its absence, the sector was thrown into disarray. The balance of power between the Federation, the Romulans and the Typhon Pact 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 than Obsidian Command is the place for you. Join us today, and be a part of history.

The sky of Obsidian was nearly blinding this time of day. Through a pair of sun glasses, Calliope squinted against the afternoon sun in order to trace the tiny object in the sky that she suspected to be the Arrow class Runabout she had arrived on. She rather preferred all…

There was a perfectly good chair at the Operations station. It was even moderately padded with standard grade cushioning guaranteed not to make one's backside feel like it was wrenched in a vise after six hours, yet somehow Rhiannon found herself settled in a makeshift nest on the floor, the…

The away team plus one came up to a white washed wall of fitted stonework and a guarded arch.

Captain DeHavilland approached the guard ahead of everyone else, adjusting the wrap of her shawl so that the rank on her collar was more obvious. "I'm Captain DeHavilland of Obsidian Command.…

Rhiannon had been on stations many times before. One couldn't engage in the Fleet life without setting foot on one of the myriad outposts scattered about; but that had always been for a quick shore-leave, or to get supplies. Never with the presence of mind that she wasn't passing from…

Minka drew a deep, pained breath, as she stood at the back of the turbolift, leaned against the back railing of the car and bracing her hands on it for support. All things considered, life was very good right now. Sure, the Starbase was in tatters and things were not…
