It is 2395, almost 10 years after the Hobus Supernova and its destruction of Romulus. The Romulan Star Empire remains in constant chaos, still without an established government or ruling body and still in constant civil war about their place in the galaxy. The Romulans are split amongst themselves, some in support of allied assistance to bring themselves back to the power they once were and some holding strong to their personal self-reliance in hopes they will be able to rebuild on their own.

The Federation is torn as well, wanting to assist the Romulans for the sake of galactic stability but feeling the pressures of outside conflicts on their resources. There is only so much they can do if their efforts are well received, and that depends on which Romulan you speak with.

Enter Vice Admiral Conor McGuinness, one of the top agents for Starfleet Intelligence and a widely respected man known for his shameless pursuits of the greater truth. Growing concerns over the state of the Romulan Empire pushed his efforts to maintaining a Federation presence near the Romulan border in hopes to provide a bridge between the two governments and a stable helping hand to the Romulans.

After securing the broken bits of Deep Space 6 which was destroyed in a freak accident in the 2360s, Vice Admiral McGuinness sought to build a brand new state-of-the-art spacedock in the backwoods of the Beta Quadrant. His goal was to continue to offer the Romulans assistance when needed, and to push for Federation exploration into the greater depths of the Milky Way.

Officially christened Deep Space 7, the stardock’s construction has just been completed and is about to be outfitted with some of the brightest minds and strongest wills to protect the quadrant and prevent it from caving in on itself.

Posted on Wednesday May 1, 2019 @ 1:32am by Captain Ira Skovgaard in General News

Hello hello hello!

I have officially closed Mission 1 - The Ghost in the Machine and have opened the doors for Mission 2 - LINK.

Deep Space 7 will be hosting some peace talks between the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire, which leads to a confrontation between two rival organizations: anti-Romulan and anti-Federation groups. This will create a tense political climate and some very strange occurrences onboard. As said by the American double-agent Robert Hanssen, 'Things are not always the way they seem.' Keep that in mind as we go through the mission.

Go check out the Mission section and read up a bit about it. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact myself or Peter.

Shaka brah,
Archie

Posted on Wednesday March 27, 2019 @ 8:42pm by Captain Ira Skovgaard in General News

Hi friends!

Ok, so after the wonderful victory of Richard over the Patron, we are finally bringing our first mission to a close. It was excellent and I'm so grateful to have you guys here to make it happen.

There is a ton of character cleanup that can happen to help tie up some loose ends. I'll be leaving this mission open until the end of April where I will officially close it out and open up our next mission. Don't forget about the Character Development mission as well for any posts set outside of the main mission.

I also need to remind you guys of the posting minimum. I know it was a little tough towards the end because of how the plot took off but don't let it stop you from posting a log set outside of the mission. If you have any questions or concerns, please come to me or Peter and let us know. We're not mind readers, so if you're having trouble getting a post out we need to be made aware of it.

Have at it with the logs. I look forward to writing and reading them in the next month.

Thank you for your excellent work and Shaka Brah,
Archie


» Independence!

Posted on Friday February 22, 2019 @ 11:18am by Captain Ira Skovgaard in Sim Announcement

Hi friends!

Today, I shall mark this day in celebration of Deep Slace 7’s official independence (hopefully no alien invasions will accompany it but some of you know my luck runs few and far between)! I look forward to expanding the sim with this newfound freedom and hope you guys will all come along for the ride.

I will be updating the rules and such in the next day or two so please be on the lookout for that. I will be asking for acknowledgment of the rules or risk being pulled from the sim. That is something I don’t enjoy doing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself or Peter here or on Discord.

Shaka Brah,
Archie
