Obsidian Command

Conflict 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.

The day was not starting off well. Corvus had woken up to start her day and, as per normal, went straight to the sonic shower only to find that it didn’t work. While that wasn’t the end of the world, it was a massive early irritation that didn’t bode well…

Chadrin L’Orss had expected to report to her commanding officer in his office or, at the very least, an office. Sitting at the table in his quarters hadn’t even been a thought in her head. Yet, here she was, nervously fingering the cup of coffee he’d offered her and that…

Makrin took shelter behind the nearest building, holding himself still as he waited for the pursuit that may or may not come. His search of Van Der Laar’s room had been fruitless, doing little more than to expend some of his own frustration at how little he had turned up.…

Leaning back in his chair, Louke played the small charm over his fingertips, gazing into a spot somewhere in middle-space. It wasn’t often he found himself dwelling on the past, but his conversation with Ibis had brought up memories he thought softened with time. Granted, the past was not even…

"Hey, man." Ensign Marcello Wiser had been trying to get in to see Jup since they'd gotten back to base a few weeks ago. And now that he was finally allowed to see him, he didn't know what to say.

Jup was a practically inanimate form in a medically induced…
