Welcome onboard the USS Wayfarer!

It's 2376, one year after the Dominion War. Now Starfleet can get back to what it was originally formed to do Exploration.

With the loss of many ships and officers in one of the bloodiest wars that the United Federation of Planets had ever seen, many younger officers find themselves advancing through the ranks quicker than expected. One such officer, Akeno Misaki didn't expect to be taking on the rank of Captain at her age. The rookie Captain, now in command of the USS Wayfarer is looking forward to finally getting back to exploring the depths of space.

Step off the transporter pad, or walk down the ramp of your shuttle and you prepare to engage on a unique Star Trek RPG experience, one filled with advanture, mystery and even we don't know whats around the next nebula! These are the voyager of the Starship Wayfarer!

The USS Wayfarer is a PG-13 Star Trek Simulation. This means you have to be over the age of 13 to join this roleplaying game.

» Arista Recap and New Mission - When on Risa.

Posted on Tue Aug 2nd, 2022 @ 4:16am by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

To all crew!

End of Arista



Congratulations and well done for such a successful mission! 'Arista' was one of our best missions yet to date! Not only did we see some fantastic writing but also some amazing character development and actions scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed every post of it, and I am very proud of what we achieved.

Overall, the mission Arista totalled 159 posts, over a period of 177 days. We started the mission February 6th and ended today on August 2nd. This means we averaged 1.11 posts per day which is fantastic!

We also won a Post of the Month award:

Best Post (Joint Post) for 'Going down' by Captain Akeno Misaki, Lieutenant Commander Jonathan Miller, Lieutenant Ileah, Lieutenant Raelyn Mckenzie, Lieutenant JG Torvin Anor, Lieutenant Rania Bhatti, Lieutenant Mark Johnson & Ensign Magnum Rhodes




As of now, we will be heading into our new mission, 'When on Risa...'.



I will be starting a new crew joint post with the Wayfarer heading back to Starbase Twelve. We will be docked at the starbase for ten to eleven days for minor repairs, maintenance and resupply. Risa is in the same sector and as we all know it has beautiful beaches, resorts and 'entertainment'.

Everyone will be granted shoreleave should you wish to use it for ten days. You can either come and join Captain Misaki on Risa for some fun in the sun, sand and surf. Stay on the Wayfarer should you wish to assist repair and resupply the ship, or spend you're granted shoreleave anyway you wish.

This will be mainly a character development and free open mission. There will be no underlining main plot or story, I believe we can all come up with our own subplots and individual stories and get to explore our characters to the fullest.

Lets keep working together to achieve our goal to become the best ship in Independence Fleet!

Live long and Prosper

Captain Akeno Misaki





*Beep* Captain Misaki is out of office at the moment, she is currently on Risa enjoying some well deserved shore leave. Please direct all messages to Commander Munetani, or leave a message after the beep.... *BEEP*




» Working to be the best in 2022!

Posted on Mon Jul 18th, 2022 @ 5:06am by Captain Akeno Misaki in Out of Character

To all crew!

At the start of this year, I decided that I was going to make it my own personal mission to turn the Wayfarer into one of, if not the best sim in the entire of Independence Fleet! I took it upon myself to put more effort into the sim and getting the story moving, sorting out some loose ends and pulling everyone together.

Its been six months (More or less, give a few weeks) that we set out on this mission together. So, I thought I'd go through a little recap for us all to track our progress.




Missions



We finally finished 'The Captains Child' in February of this year. The ending was a complete surprise and even though we had quite a lot of crew changes throughout the mission, we managed to pull it off! Overall we achieved a total number of 69 posts for the mission (Yes I know, its a 'funny' number). We also gained a post of the month award in this mission too! Well done!



Our second mission this year is 'Arista'. From the feedback and overall improvement in activity I believe the mission is going well. We've slowed down a little due to the summer hitting us and we all end up enjoying the sunshine. However we're doing well and in the short time we've already achieved an outstanding 88 Posts! Well done people and keep up the fantastic work!




Awards

Well, I can say that I am proud of all of you for the awards we have won this year! We have won a ship award every month this year! That is a fantastic result, and we even won the external Tournament of Sims Prize too for last year! Here's what we've won, congratulations to you all! Keep bringing in those awards and show the fleet what we can do! :)

Captains Final Message

To finish this off, I want to just take a moment and thank you all for your hard work, dedication and fantastic writing.

I admit we've had ups and downs however we have turned into a fantastic little crew and we are still finding out feet.

So, raise the beverage of your choice and have a drink to the finest crew in Starfleet! Here's to another fantastic six months, lets keep it up and become the best ship and crew in the fleet!

» Welcome Matt!

Posted on Sat Jun 25th, 2022 @ 4:06pm by Captain Akeno Misaki in Sim Announcement

To all crew

Please give a big welcome to Matt, who will be coming aboard as our new Executive Officer Commander Mashiro Munetani. Matt has joined us from another fleet and is brand new to IDF, so please give him a big Wayfarer and IDF welcome. He currently runs a sim over in another fleet so has command experience and is a passionate and enthusatic writer, he has informed me that he is really looking forward to writing with us all, so lets not let him down!

Until the end of this mission, I have authorised for Matt to take temporary command of our old XO so he can get involved. I'll be catching him up shortly on whats occuring. Once this mission is done his character will be coming aboard and joining the crew full time.

Also, just for fun here's a nice promotional photo of your new Captain and Commander to enjoy.



Welcome to the USS Wayfarer Matt!

» XO Position Opening

Posted on Mon Jun 20th, 2022 @ 7:07am by Captain Akeno Misaki in Sim Announcement

To all crew.

I need to inform you that our Executive Officer played by Mike has decided to step down from the Wayfarer and simming due to personal reasons.

Until the end of the mission to keep the story continuaty I will be NPCing Commander Miller so that we can continue what's already been started. I intend to push forward and wrap up and joint posts he had yet to complete, so please keep an eye out fir tags.

This does also mean that the position of Executive Officer is now open. I want to offer it to the crew first before opening the position publicly. Please send me a message or message me on Discord if you're interested and we will discuss potential options for the position. This is a good chance to get into the Command department either with a current character (if applicable) or a new character.

I hope you're all enjoying the summer and staying safe.

Regards

Captain Akeno Misaki
Commanding Officer
