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!!

From Matt's monthly report:

Along with the many announcements on Obsidian Day, the new position of Task Force Executive Officer was made public. The Command Team of TF-72 are pleased to announce that the Peacekeeper’s first TFXO will be that of Commodore Jacinto Eriksen, of Starbase Protector. The Commodore has served as Task Group 72-C’s TGCO for going on 4 years and has the full trust and respect of his peers and fellow players.

This leaves a vacancy for a TGCO of 72-C, the White Wolves. After a long and discussion, it seemed proper to have the Senior Ship Commanding Officer of the Task Group C, whom has served in that role for almost four years, to step up and take the role of the Task Group CO. It is with with great pride to have Captain Raymond Wulfe of the USS Asgard, as the newest member of the 72 Command Team and wish him well with heading the White Tigers. Captain Wulfe has been an active CO for over 5 years and we look to have him use his many years of experience in guiding TG72-C forward into the future

Dear All,



Last night we held the first annual birthday celebration for Obsidian Fleet, celebrating its 16th birthday and announcing some amazing things. I would like to summarise the event for those of us who were not able to join in the festivities;



Most importantly a new logo (above) and website were announced. Going forward, this is what we will use as we transition data and features; http://obsidianfleet.tech/
With the new site and new brand, we launched some simple rules and guidelines; please ensure that you familiarise yourself with them here; http://obsidianfleet.tech/obsidian-fleet-branding/
The Task Force Executive Officer role was announced with the first people to fill those positions, let’s congratulate Commodore Lancaster and Commodore Eriksen!
Fleet Services announced that three new Community Engagement Champions had been selected, in Discord, you will know them as Grengol CO of the SS Mary Rose, Bagheera and not only to be an engagement Champion, Commodore Eriksen was selected as the Assistant Services Director!
A new, easier, CO Reporting tool was announced, all Commanding Officer reports are to be filled in using this new form. Once signed up to the site and CO permissions granted, you will find the link on your relevant Task Force page.
Innovation & Development announced a new class to join our fleet, the Vesta. One ship per task force has been agreed so far, so keep an eye out for them!
Golden PADD winners were announced, SubjectHazard’s entry of “From the Cradle” was our winner, and you can read more here.
Three unique, Out of Character, awards were created for Obsidian Day, and it is a pleasure to announce the winners (using their Discord Names);
Obsidian Social Vanguard: ShatnersHair
Obsidian Personality of the Year: Bagheera
Obsidian Volunteer of the Year: Berel Joon
Obsidian Fleet announced that there would be a team that would be looking to overhaul the Fleet’s rules and policies, if you are interested or want to know more, please go here.


Important

Yahoo will be closing as of 4th August 2017, and we require all Commanding Officers to have signed up to the new site, request their access be changed by their TFCO or the JFC and then request access to the dedicated Commanding Officer area. IFS2’s CO area will replace Yahoo for all CO communications and engagement, if there are any issues please raise a support ticket.



As we transition from our old site to our new, part of our improvement programme is to open up communications from all levels, and our Fleet Improvement Programme form is an essential aspect of this. You can use this form to report issues you see with policy, rules, players or even to suggest ideas and changes. Each entry is submitted directly to the Fleet Owner, often called Data Controller, and their duty is to report their findings to the Fleet Council and make recommendations based on data. Sometimes the data will be used to track trends in activity or concerns, or (what I call ‘no brainers’) the idea is that are great will be recommended for immediate consideration or deployment to the Fleet. Rest assured, your identity remains with the Fleet Owner, and if there are any questions they will contact you directly and never share your identifying information with the Council.



As you will have seen our new website is a lot more efficient than our last, however, it is still a work in progress. If there are any bugs or issues, then please report them using the Obsidian Fleet Help Request form.



Please convey these messages along to your crews, encourage them to sign up to the new site as this will make it easier for you when the Fleet Management System update is released shortly in IFS2.3 = IFS Harriman (Add characters, sims, manifests, etc)



I would like to thank all of the Fleet Council for being in attendance last night, some made great efforts to be there (one is on holiday, and one was even at work!), and this meant a lot to me and the community. Commanding Officers, without you and your players, this community would not be as amazing as it is. Keep up your excellent work and keep an eye out for more announcements in the near future!
