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.

Mission: M3 - Into the Deep
Posted on 17 May 2022 @ 3:54pm by Lieutenant JG Hannah Wagner

Hannah paused for a moment to rub her hand over tired eyes. She had a faint headache, the office she'd commandeered smelled vaguely floral, and she couldn't figure out if that was because of the use it had previously or the lingering perfume of the person who had last worked…

The seed vault was something of a public building and stood open to Lance and Calliope as they approached from their parked shuttle. It was a very different atmosphere than the evening they had attended the party. Much of the banners and trappings and event lighting were all missing. The…

It had been a full morning. Ever since the invitation from Doctor Llwyd to participate in a triathlon, Calliope had been motivated to do more than wait to recover. At first it had started with the stationary bike, and then some hydro therapy that had transitioned into swimming herself to…

Like the small surgery in her old clinic, the brig cell she was escorted into was dominated by cold metallic surfaces and vacant enough to evoke sterility, although much more dimly lit than the operating room. Yuliette didn’t turn around to watch the security officer engage the force field, although…

It was rare that Lance, as Chief Engineer, was called to the main docking bay to make any kind of assessment or judgement. The only time that had happened in recent memory was following the attack on the station and some noncom had delayed repair work by an extra week…
