Welcome to the USS Defiant!
Welcome to the USS Defiant! We are part of Obsidian Fleet's AU Timeline. A ship devoted to exploration, we aboard the Defiant are devoted to IDIC and all similar philosophies, looking to make an open and welcoming environment for all.
With our simulation set in 2264, the USS Defiant is set roughly a year after the events of Star Trek Beyond, letting our ship and our characters explore the macro and micro scale effects of the films' events, while also giving us the freedom to tell our own tales. Whether its the political changes on the Federation council caused by a diminished Vulcan presence or the lingering feelings of loss for those who knew people killed on Vulcan, the Defiant sim aims to explore what it feels like to live in the world set around the new film series.
The Federation is in the process of remodeling itself. After the shocking loss of Vulcan and the defensive militarism caused by Nero's attack, the UFP is pulling itself back toward the idealistic and peaceful goals of its original mission. Starfleet has made a renewed effort to put exploration and diplomatic outreach as its primary goals and has christened several new ships under that banner. Settling into an uneasy calm with its Romulan and Klingon neighbors, the Federation is looking to find new frontiers.
The USS Defiant has been purpose built to explore the stars. Filled with all of the technological advantages of its time, the Defiant puts science and exploration first, boasting impressive databases, laboratories, and sensor facilities. The Constitution class's versatility helps it fit most classes of mission and the Defiant has been outfitted for a lengthy trip away from the rest of the Federation. It’s a good thing too. The Defiant's mission is set to take her far outside of the Federation support network and she's going to face some significant threats.
Starfleet Long Range Telemetry has detected an extragalactic object on course for the Milky Way. Its point of origin is outside Federation Territory, and the Defiant has been dispatched to determine the nature of the object and what threat it may pose. Along the way, the crew is going to carry out Starfleet’s Mission: seeking out new life and new civilizations as they boldly go where no one has gone before.
Take a look around and if you're interested then enlist and join us as we boldly go where no one has gone before!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we have some changes going on aboard Defiant. There will be a much lengthier post coming soon, but for now I want to highlight the newest faces aboard.
Rounding out our Tactical and Security branches are:
Lt. JG Samuel Case, as Chief Tactical Officer
Lt. JG Andrew McGarrett, as Chief Security Officer
I’m sure they’ll be whipping the redshirts into shape in no time. Everyone please introduce yourselves and make them feel welcome. And open some JPs with our new officers.

Attention all hands:
Commander Summer Gallagher is once more taking up the mantle of Chief Intelligence Officer. Relevant subordinate officers will be following her to that department as Defiant reshuffles its staff. Please direct any intelligence matters to her, once again.
Strategic Operations related concerns should be run through Petty Officer Amelia Redgrave, who will be handling those matters in the interim.
Thank you all,
Captain Christopher James

Sitting on the floor outside of his quarters, Morgan tried to concentrate on the data slate. There were always more medical journals to read. It was hard enough to stay on top of the standard notifications, changes to procedure and the latest reports from StarFleet Medical.
The latter is what…
Connor walked up to the door to the Captain's Ready Room. It wasn't the first stop he'd made since coming aboard the ship or even the second. He'd wanted to go over Defiant's systems before going for this meeting. May as well start on the wrong foot.
He smirked to…

Several lights flashed on the science console. Caroline Isley had been distracted thinking of the shuttle crew and what they were facing, but her attention was suddenly focused back on her panel.

The wispy white clouds of the upper atmosphere moved lazily beneath her as Captain Reynolds gazed out of the viewport. She'd been mulling over things for too long, wasting valuable time which she could have spent off the ship. Eventually, she decided she wasn't getting very far within her own…

Matthieu Bellerose, local bartender, and general layabout walked down the beach, dressed in a flowing white sarong, and nothing else, listening to the sound of the waves and feeling the wonderful breeze caress their skin. Above them, in the awe-inspiring blue dome of the sky, the sun beamed down, catching…

Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.358;
Defiant has finally arrived in Earth orbit. After the events of the last few weeks, the crew is badly in need of a break like this. We're all bruised and tired. A week or two at home will do us some good. And with the war…
