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.

» Captains Christmas Message 2022!

Posted on Fri Dec 23rd, 2022 @ 8:12pm by Captain Akeno Misaki in Sim Announcement

To all crew!

I am writing this to you today, as I am not going to be available for the next few days! (Obvious reasons really...)

I want to take a few moments to wish you all a Happy Christmas Season. I am proud to tell you that the Wayfarer has had its best year ever! I only took command of the ship in late 2020, and we have gone from strength to strength as a crew.

The mission 'Arista' was not only the longest mission we have ever written, but also one of our best. I will admit that 2022 has not been a very good year for me. With the loss of my grandmother in January, to having a mental breakdown in the summer and fighting off severe depression, to the world falling apart political and stablility wise; 2022 has been a bad year for me personally and for the entire world.

However, regardless of everything that has happened I am proud to be your Commanding Officer and you have all helped me get through some very dark days and long nights. I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment with you all on the Wayfarer and I look forward to many more years together, as a crew, but also as a community and family.

Speaking of family, I want to ask you all during the time between now and the New Year to spend it with family, friends and people you are close with. I hereby declare that from this moment on, you are all on vacation. (But if you really have to tag, then feel free) Remember to cherish every moment with those you love, as one day they will be gone. So please promise me that you'll visit those you care for, have a drink, eat food, laugh and play together. Make memories you'll never forget and then return to our little Intrepid Class Starship to share your stories filled with joy and happiness.

Also, I understand that this time of year can be very hard for some people. For of you who don't know me personally, I work on Britains Railways. December is the worst month for people ending their lives on the tracks due to thinking it will end their pain. I want you all to know, that I am here for each and every one of you. My door is open, and if you know of anyone in your community/family/area who needs someone, be there for them. Pop in for a cup of tea, invite them for a meal or just a friendly chat. Trust me, at this time of year, Lonliness is the biggest killer. We're all Human in the end, so regardless of religion, race, politics or nationality, be there for each other. That is what Gene Roddenberry imagined when he created Star Trek.

I'm going to end this on a positive note. I am proud of what we have accomplished. I set out at the start of 2022, to become one of the best ships in Independence Fleet. Although there is no way to measure that, to me this ship is the best because you are. You are the finest crew in Starfleet and I feel like no amount of awards can truly show that.

For now, please spend time with loved ones, look out for those who need a friend. Stay safe, have a very Merry Christmas and I will see you all bright eyes and fluffy tailed in 2023!

Live Long & Prosper

Captain Akeno Misaki/Will


» Its Spooky Season!

Posted on Wed Oct 19th, 2022 @ 11:42am by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

To all crew!

Its coming upto Spooky Season, which means... Halloween! (Insert spooky ghost wail here).

To celebrate the Spooky Holiday, I have created a side-mission for those who want to write something festive.



All posts in this mini-side-mission will be Out of Timeline so they can occur whenever or wherever you want them to be! I should also mention, this is just for some fun so there's no requirement to write in it! So its upto you should you wish to do a Halloween post or not!

I look forward to seeing some spooky and Halloween posts from you!

Stay safe, and if you see anything weird, call the Ghostbusters... But remember not to cross the streams!

» 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 took command of the Wayfarer after her previous CO left, I inherited this ship and some of her crew. 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!
