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!

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

Defiant was buzzing with activity again, a sight that brought comfort to Captain Reynolds's mind. She'd enjoyed the brief respite on Earth, but after some of the recent events, she was glad to get back out there. As she exited her quarters, she made her way down the hall toward…
With that familiar swooshing sound, the doors to Caroline Isley's quarters slid open and the blue-clad blonde walked in quickly. She was reading a PADD and didn't even bother to look around. She walked over to the chair at the small workstation in the room and took a seat, carefully…
The Starbase gleemed in space before the view port. Summer smiled. She could see the Artie off in the distance and she turned to the transporter chief.
"One to beam to the Artemis please chief."
"No problem, Commander. Its been great having you back you know."
She smiled. "Thanks, Chief.…

The turbo lift door opened onto a balcony, overlooking the lower level of the Starbase's Promenade. The usual sounds of hustle filled her ears. Officers moving back and forth, going to whatever adventure was next on the list. Moments like this reminded, her that they weren't so alone out there…
The bottle landed with a clink on the table, spinning slightly until it landed securely on its base. Charlotte watched the way it spun, noting the way it maintained its balance even as it seemed to verge on tipping. And yet, it didn’t fall. There was something admirable in that.…

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…

Me and Chief T'ran are butting heads again. I can't pinpoint the exact time at which our relationship deteriorated, but I'm beginning the believe there's no hope of reconciliation.
It's grown to a point that the CO has had to place us both…
