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!

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

Captain's Log, Stardate 2264.027:
Life has begun to return to normal aboard Defiant. The last few days since our escape from Typhon's simulation have had a marked reduction in stress. Nothing like a reality-bending experience to make everyone excited for some calm exploration again.
Though our larger mission is lingering…
Pierce laid on the floor of the security office. Part of his mind was trying to tell him to wake up and get moving...but another part just wanted to sleep.
The part that wanted to sleep won.
Pierce opened his eyes and found himself on one the ship's corridors.
Nathan had finished his shift and didn't want to go back to his quarters and stare at the four walls. Nor did he want to go for a run. He finally decided to go to the Defiant's lounge and have a drink. Entering he saw the place wasn't quite full…

The train rattled along. It was an advanced device, but it wasn't in great shape. The ride was uneven and occasionally startling. After one particularly aggressive jolt, Charlotte found herself unable to sit still. Instead, she busied herself with checking on the crew. She knew this was actually putting her…

Captains Log...Stardate Uncertain,
