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 are seeking out new worlds and new civilizations, all while dealing with the ominous implications of a dark powerful force at work.
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 2263, the USS Defiant is set shortly after the events of Star Trek Beyond, letting our ship and our characters explore the macro and micro scale effects of the films' events. 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 trying to follow its better angels. 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. Its 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.

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.

Captain Reynolds made her way down the corridor, command dress swinging slightly with each movement, her boots producing a satisfying clank along the floor. She keeping an eye on the door labels as she passed each one. She was trying to figure out how she wanted to approach this conversation.…
