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.

Crew of the Wayfarer!

Here's something special for you! Today I made a cake of our little ship for a competition between myself and a friend. However its also to celebrate winning a Simming Prize for 2 years in a row! Thanks again for all your hard work!

Now, I'm going to go ahead and inflict some MAJOR hull breaches on it! I only wish I could send you all a piece and then it would be perfect! :)



Happy Simming!

» Tournament of Sims Award 2021!

Posted on Thu May 12th, 2022 @ 9:16am by Captain Akeno Misaki in Sim Announcement

To all crew.

I am proud to announce that the Wayfarer has won an award in the Tournament of Sims for 2021!




Out of 70 nominated sims from across the entire community, the Wayfarer came 14th with a score of 63 out of a top score of 90! This means we won a 'Great Star Trek Award'.

The scores were broken down into three categories, Characters, Story and Readability and we were judged by three anonymous judges each which had no connection with the sims they judged.

Here's what they had to say:

Judge 1: 'This sim does a great job with continued development of the characters and game background while playing a new mission.
One thing they could work on is upping mission start pace a little.'


Judge 2:'This sim does a phenomenal job with the story. The imagery in the writing is superb and brings you right
into the story. In addition the images on the site add to the imagery that the reader has in their head.
One thing this sim can work on is to allow for a little more character development during the missions. It
seems that everyone is just doing their job most times.'


Judge 3:'This sim does a great job with keeping a story moving. One thing they could work on is believability.'

I just want to say that I'm quite happy with the feedback and proud of you all, especially since 2020 and 2021 were rough years for everyone in real life. I am proud to be your captain and I look forward to many more years of keeping our course somewhat on track! Let's take this feedback, work together as a family to improve and obtain our mission to become one of the best IDF sims, whilst having lots of fun too!

» Wayfarer Status Update

Posted on Mon Feb 7th, 2022 @ 12:46am by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

Attention all Wayfarer Crew!

Welcome!

First of all, a big welcome to Ray/Starduster who is joining us as Lieutenant Rania Bhatti our new Chief Counsellor. He is a good friend of mine and a wonderful writer, if you want some craziness or something different than Ray is your guy. Please give him a huge welcome to the Wayfarer!

Lieutenant Rania Bhatti will be joining the ship once we dock at Starbase 83, which is happening right now. So don't forget to pop by the Counselling Suite and have every word you say scrutinized... I mean your Phys Eval... You know what I mean...




New Mission!

I understand that the mission 'The Captains Child' had been a very long one. We've had crew come and go and with the recent change in command, its been a rough road. The entire world also saw the outbreak of COVID and we've lost many people out of character which has made this mission drag on a little. (Would you believe me if I told you it was meant to only last 6-8 weeks as a little fun mini-mission?)

However, we did manage to get some good posts and character development out of it. We achieved 69 great posts, (Yes I know, thats a 'funny' number! Behave!) and it was the longest in terms of posts and time in Wayfarer History. However I'm sure we'll end up beating that eventually.

Our new mission starts today, here's a summary for you:

Star Trek Wayfarer - Arista


80 years ago, the USS Arista, a Miranda Class vessel, under command of Captain Sistine Fibel disappeared off of Starfleet scopes. After an extensive search the ship was declared lost with all hands.

In 2376 the USS Wayfarer picks up a weak distorted distress call from the Arista from an unexplored star system. The wreckage of the old vessel lays crashed on a M Class planet with a small colony nearby of roughly one hundred Humans.

However, none of the Human population seem to be over the age of sixteen and all female. When the Wayfarer investigates they discover that for the last 80 years the population has been regularly visited by an alien race known only as The Tyranians, who visit and harvest the older Humans for food as well as drop off new Human children to repopulate their livestock.


At the moment, the Wayfarer will be docking at Starbase 83 to take on crew and supplies. We are due a short stay at the base and we'll be shipping out soon.




Captains Message

I just want to say that I am very proud of you all for what we have achieved here. I have been finding it really hard to write these last few weeks with the loss of my grandmother who sadly passed away from Dementia. However, I have promised you that I intend to make this one of the best ships in the entire of Independence Fleet, and I want you to join me in making that happen.

Lets crack on and get on with our mission to be the very best, and show everyone our true colours!

Stay Safe, and take care people!

Regards

Captain Akeno Misaki

» New Year!

Posted on Tue Jan 11th, 2022 @ 2:33am by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

To all crew!

I just wanted to take a few moments to wish you all a happy new year and fill you in on what I am going to be doing with the Wayfarer this year.

I understand that the sim has been a little slow over the last few months. This is mainly my fault, I have had a lot on my plate at home and at work. Plus with the COVID 19 pandemic, I have also not been in good health at times. I spent most of the end of last year assisting my grandmother who developed severe dementia, however I can report she is now safely settled into a nursing home and is recieving the care she needs.

Also, I am aware that the Wayfarer site has issues sending out emails at time. I have yet to work out why, but I believe this is an issue when it comes to keeping activity going. I'll be working closely in the next few weeks to try and rectify this problem.

As for the current mission, I intend to push this fast now and get it finished by the end of the month. So here is a slight breakdown of what I have planned.

- 'Junior' will steer the ship towards the Nebula where its other kind are from.
- The Wayfarer crew will incapacitate Junior whilst the entity is still inside Akeno's womb, which will lead to her going into labor.
- Junior will be born from Akeno before the ship can reach its destination.
- Unfortunately, Junior will not have a physical form for long and will return back to its non-physical form. Something that Junior nor we could predict.
- Once Akeno has recovered from the ordeal, she will stop the Wayfarer with her Codes and redirect the ship to a nearby starbase.

I believe we can cover these events in the next 2-5 posts.

I would also like to know who is still on board with the ship so I can plan ahead for the next mission.

Also, I want to once again apologise for the inactivity we have had for the previous months. Now that my personal life has become more stable, I fully intend to push the Wayfarer into a new era and become a shining jewel of Independence Fleet.

Lets do this together, 2022 is going to be out year!

Regards

Captain Akeno Misaki
Commanding Officer
