Welcome to the USS Asgard, a proud member of Obsidian Fleet!



This is an 18+ SIMM.

This is the USS Asgard, a Norway class ship set up to survey and explore the many space anomalies in and along the Federations many borders. Currently The Asgard is assigned to the Phendara Drifts to take samples and readings of the composition of the drifts. Her previous Captain was slain on his last mission, The Asgard suffered heavy losses and severe damage on that last outing. The ship was hammered by Breen Raiders who had recently become more active in the sector. So now with a new Commander, a new crew and repairs completed the Asgard is returning. Not a ship of war by any means she does have teeth and a dedicated crew. Starfleet Command does not want a war so the Asgard has the added duty of finding out why the Breen are so interested in this area. The Norway is basically equal to a Breen frigate, but they seldom travel alone and the Norway class would have no choice but to run from a pack of them! So finding out why the Breen are here is not going to be an easy task.



USS Asgard was voted the SIMM of the year for 2013


Welcome to Adventure, to take the chance to risk it all. Winning is the only option as losing means a cold death. The Asgard is one of the most comfortable berths in the Fleet with spacious rooms and accommodations for even the lowest ranks. Live well and enjoy life as it may be short!!

It is self explanatory, so if any one is interested have a blast. This has nothing to do with the Asgard, it is a fleet event and despite the disclaimer looks like a recruitment event. It is a chance to chat with other members of the fleet.


///////////////////////////////////////////////
Greetings Fellow CO's,

The USS Merlin would like to invite you to its first annual holiday celebration! In an effort to keep from looking like this is a recruitment thing I am only sending to the CO list and letting the CO's decide if they pass it on to their simmers. This celebration will include virtual food and drink, fun as well as a promotion and awards ceremony that all CO’s will be invited to participate in to award all crew who can make it from any sim!

Where: USS Merlin Discord server - https://discord.gg/HhkjfGA

I think I covered all the current Fleet time zones, if I missed yours please let me know and I’ll get you a conversion. This will exist outside of any current sim in character time so as not to interfere with any sims plots. Please note, because this is going to be all inclusive this event has a PG13 rating. Come, hang out and sim with simmers from across the Fleet :D

» Bronze for July

Posted on Mon Aug 15th, 2016 @ 6:25pm by Captain Raymond Wulfe in General News

The Asgard has been awarded a bronze award for July. I have sent the list here so you can all see the other award winners. Please keep in mind count is not the sole criteria for an award, or else this would just be a horse race for counts. We here do every month what others are striving to achieve. That is the quality of the crew here. So when you read the post counts of the other winners think of other SIMMs you have been on and celebrate the strength of the winners. The Merlin is well deserved of their GOLD for the month. As are all the winners.

i also want to thank Bert and Matt for always having our back, their support is very important to me.

Raymond of the Asgard

List below: keep in mind only the highest award is given, so each silver was seledted from the bronzes of their TaskForce and the Gold was selected from the Silvers.
===============================
Bronze

Deep Space 5, TF21
"Another excellent month for DS5. As always, the crew remains very active and shows strong participation on all fronts. The sim is currently in a character-development period between missions and it's been a lot of fun to read the progression and storytelling of all the various toons. Great work by both the CO and her crew. " -RADM Saalm

USS Artemis, TF21
"Great number of posts and recruitment is up for the CO and sim along with personal awards. The sim is doing really well." -CDRE Barks

USS Deimos, TF72
The Deimos had 38 posts this months. From a crew of four. I took a look at their site, and the writing is great. All in all, they’re on track to be a fantastic sim once they’re properly on their feet
and I look forward to seeing how they continue to progress. For that reason, they are my nomination for UoM.
Submitted: Captain Oliver Lancaster - former SSCO 72-A

USS Asgard, TF72
For continued excellence and hard work from the players, and the outstanding leadership of her command team. They’ve got an amazing 24 players on board now, and Captain Wulfe says that 2 more may join soon. He’s also been making updates to the sim’s rules, wiki, and time line. Crew spirits are high. As always I’m cheering them on.
Submitted by: Commodore T'Zera TGCO 72-C

Silver

USS Centaurus, TF21
"This month it has to go to the Centaurus. The Centaurus launched in May and now has 10 players. Not only that, they had a post count of 35. There is some crew shuffling, but the posting is going well. His first mission, rather than a simple "shakedown," is called, "Gremlins," which lets everyone know exactly what to expect. The sim is off to a great start and deserves a Bronze award for what it's accomplished in so short a time." -CAPT Michaels

"As CAPT Michaels mentioned, Centaurus has been off to a fantastic start in the few months they've been with us. The CO is active and constantly engaged with his players, and as a group, they are really enjoying themselves and putting out some excellent roleplay. I've been very impressed with the sim's performance and dedication to their stories. Outstanding!" -RADM Saalm

USS Archimedes, TF47
My nomination for this month is the Archimedes. This month, they’ve had an impressive 33 post count, made all the more impressive by the fact that we are in a period usually known for being a drought on posting! They’ve got a very interesting sounding mission, and I look forward to seeing great things, and posting a great many more UoM nominations, from this sim!

Gold

USS Merlin, TF72
I am beyond proud to nominate the USS Merlin for the award this month. Once again, they have shown what a crew working together can achieve. Earlier in the month, the Commanding Officer was appointed as Senior Ship Commanding Officer, but that didn’t stop him from posting, and being even more active, taking a great approach to talk to the Commanding Officers in the Task Group to get some ideas flowing and most of the Commanding Officers have really appreciated the extra set of eyes on their website and what they are doing. On the USS Merlin, he challenged his crew to reach 90 “quality” posts over the month, and even with a bandwidth issue and a change of website, they were still able to not just reach that goal (with time to spare), but even that didn’t stop them, reaching 98 posts,

and I took the time to read some of those posts, and they are of the best quality, they aren’t just a couple of one-liners to post out to boost the numbers, they are pure quality writing from crewmember after crewmember, and a lot of them are joint posts, showing me that this crew has a sense of family, respect and most importantly; teamwork. They are the epitome of what we should all be looking at for our simulations, and they should all be proud of what they have achieved in four short months that they have been part of Obsidian Fleet! Well done USS Merlin crew!
