Welcome to Star Trek: Gemini!


Set in the late 24th century, Star Trek: Gemini continues the stories of the final frontier. Here, you will find some of the both novice and experienced creative writers who have come together to continue the journey and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Our story takes place aboard the Starship Gemini, one of Obsidian Fleet's finest Galaxy-class Explorers. Tried and true, she and her crew have proven themselves in combat, diplomacy, disaster relief, and exploration. Now, at the dawn of a new decade, they must meet all new challenges amidst an ever-changing galaxy.

Do you have what it takes to be a Starfleet officer, enlisted crewman, marine, or civilian serving aboard the Starship Gemini? We have immediate openings available, and we welcome players of all levels of experience. The adventure of a lifetime awaits! Visit our Recruitment Center to get started!

USS Gemini exploring anomalies.

Brief History


The Starship Gemini was named for the Graeco-Roman myth of Castor and Pollux. In the myth, the twins shared a human mother but different fathers. Pollux was the son of the god Zeus and therefore immortal. Castor, however, was the son of the mortal Tyndareus; he, too, was also mortal. When Castor died, Pollux asked Zeus to let him share in his immortality, and they were transformed into the constellation Gemini. Today, they were the patrons of sailors on Earth, Saint Elmo's light.

Following the Dominion War, there came a decade's long fragile peace in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Starfleet slowly returned to the days of exploration, and the Galaxy-class USS Gemini NCC-72635 was assigned to the front lines of the final frontier.

Following her mission of exploration, Gemini went through a major overhaul due to years of service to Starfleet. She was to return to her duty of exploration; however, the destruction of Romulus fundamentally changed the balance of power in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, and Gemini anticipates a mission of humanitarian and peacekeeping duties, perhaps deep within the Romulan frontier.

Greetings, everyone!

I am pleased to announce the addition of a new character and a new player to our games. Both of these individuals are joining our security division, and as many of you have noted, it will be great to have the security roster fleshed out a little bit more by PCs than we have in the past!

First, please join me in welcoming LT Betel Lante, who will be filling the vacant Chief of Security & Tactical position. This is a new character for an existing player who applied for this opening, so we are pleased to welcome him into the fold in this new role as a senior officer.

Next, I am pleased to welcome ENS June Davies aboard as our Security Investigations Officer. This is Davies' player's first time roleplaying in this format, so please do all you can to help make her welcome and show her the ropes!

Let's give these new arrivals a warm welcome by starting those joint posts!

» New Mission Clarification

Posted on Fri Dec 26th, 2014 @ 1:41pm by Captain Thomas Hansen in General News

Greetings, everyone!

I just wanted to share a few clarifications on the new mission:

1. I know that some of you have unfinished joint posts from the previous mission. Please feel free to take the next week to finish up any character development joint posts. Mark them in the subject line as a back post, and the sim staff can move them to the appropriate mission when they are posted. We would like for all backposts to be completed by January 1, 2015, please.

2. Even though our new mission has begun, we are going to take the week between December 25 and January 1 to let people get back from vacation and family time due to the holidays before we dive in deep.

Thanks!

This award is given on the basis of having one of the funniest lines ever written in our game!

"Where the hell do you people all come from!?" she said with her arms raising. "Every ten minutes I am doing a physical for new crew!" She turned and looked around. "Did we park over Starfleet Academy and no one tell me?" She exhaled loudly. "I thought we were in the bloody Gamma Quadrant, oh yes filled with weird and wonderful diseases to study! new and exotic life forms... Oh no not for Gemini's Chief Medic." She exhaled again and shook her head. She waved a hand at the Deltan. "Sit your ass down and lets get this over with."

Lieutenant JG Kaithrae Ryan
Meritorious Newcomer of the Month
