Welcome to the Deep Space 3!

“In the darkest reaches of the United Federation of Planets, an isolated station stands sentinel over a neglected frontier. Commissioned long ago with high hopes, its promise is now all but forgotten; a lonely outpost serving as the gateway to the vast expanse beyond, where discovery…and adventure…await..”

» New Mission

Posted on Monday March 1st, 2021 @ 6:31pm by Lieutenant Commander Ithahr th'Shrannok in Sim Announcement


As I'm sure you've all noticed, a new mission has gone live today as promised.

Jeepers Creepers 2: Creepers in Flight will follow on from the Jeepers Creepers mission.

Minimal knowledge of that mission will be needed to participate.

The mission, as previously stated will involve both an 'A' and 'B' storyline, one involving a passenger freighter and a virus, the other an essential diplomatic conference between the three major powers in the area, the Federation, Romulan Star Empire, and Klingon Empire.

Missions going forward will be arranged in a similar fashion so we can get all our excellent writers involved. Designation as an A, B or even C plot is not a reflection of its important - all writing for the sim is, as previously noted.

Mission notes and a call for some NPCs will be going out via News Item and the Discord server over the next 24-48 hours

As a Command Team we're looking forward to showing you our cards and see how you respond to them!

Live Long and Prosper!

- Commander Tobias Bishop III
- Lt. Commander Ithahr th'Shrannock

» New Month, New Mission

Posted on Wednesday February 24th, 2021 @ 4:23pm by Lieutenant Commander Ithahr th'Shrannok in Out of Character


We hope this News Item finds you in good health, and with the terrible weather some of you will have encountered recently firmly behind you.
With the Federation Ambassador arriving at Deep Space three, the Command Team (Commander Tobias Bishiop III and Lieutenant Commander Ithahr), feel that it is time to close off the present mission and begin the next, exciting phase of Deep Space Three’s life.

Therefore, Forgotten Outpost will be closed at the end of the month, and a new mission will be opened on March 1st. The title and content of the next mission will be updated over the coming weekend. Any open Joint Posts will then roll over to the new open mission. Nobody’s hard work will be lost.
Going forward, each mission will have an ‘A’ storyline and a ‘B’ storyline that will ensure all members of the crew will be able to participate with their Primary/Playing characters and any PNPCs the Command Team have agreed to be created. The designation of a plot as an ‘A’ or ‘B’, or even ‘C’ if called for, will have no bearing as to its importance to the story of the simulation as a whole.

We appreciate the patience and forbearance you have shown whilst the new Executive Officer has gotten his feet under the desk – it is appreciated, and we hope to celebrate many milestones with you over the coming period of time as we celebrate our collective hard work. With the launch of the new mission, however, we do wish to emphasise that normal posting rules for the sim will now apply, meaning two poster per player per month will be expected as a minimum.

For those of you who will perhaps struggle with inspiration outside of posts directly related to the mission, please get in touch with the Executive Officer, Lt. Commander Ithahr, as he will always be happy to help in writing a Joint Post – he is here to write, after all!

Live Long, and Prosper!

- Commander Tobias Bishop III – Commanding Officer

Referece: SCIS Uniforms
In order to show professionalism throuout the entire Starfleet Criminal Investigative Service I am now directing that all Special Agents assigned to your ship, and facility; to include Orbital Starbases, land Starbases, Repair Facilities, and also Starships to wear in lieu of their formerly worn e civilian clothing.

In recent weeks, and months I have been receiving communiques from various commanders reporting that Special Agents of the SCIS do not appear to present a professional manner, or that the look of an agent is not in accordance with the professional look of all Starfleet Personnel.

With that in mind, the use of the old Starfleet Uniform, formerly known as the Monster Uniform of the 2280's be used by all SCIS personnel. The uniform shall be all black, to include boots, and gloves if needed (for further please refer all clothing maters to SCIS Circular 200-19-25).

HOWEVER the use civilian clothing for off site or installation use in an investigation will still continue to Stand.

Rank for all Civilians SCIS agents shall be the old 20th to 21st US Navy military rank.

(For weapons, see SCIS circular 185-39-29) for further information.

For the commander,
JJ Pettigrew, LCMDR
Office of the JAG

Turning his attention away from the derelict freighter, Ithahr noticed that his PADD was pinging with an urgent appointment in the nearby shuttlebay. Seeing that a new Chief of Security was about to come aboard, he attracted Bishop's attention and indicated the arrival.

For as much as the holodecks cost to run, they sure liked to break. And for as much as Brolga liked complaining about them, they were actually quite fun to fix.

The Klingon stood outside the holodeck, leaning against the wall. He had a small box of supplies beside him,…
