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.

To all crew!

USS Wayfarer has won a couple of awards this month!

First of, congratulations to you all for a Fantastic opening post to our newest mission. It has earnt us recognition in the form of the Genesis award!

Genesis Award for 'Revisiting The Past' by Captain Akeno Misaki, Commander Mashiro Munetani, Lieutenant Commander Raelyn Mckenzie, Lieutenant Commander Mark Johnson, Lieutenant Ileah, Lieutenant Luna Eclipse of the House of Martok, Lieutenant Rania Bhatti & Lieutenant Patra Rommel.

Well done to you all!

Here on the Wayfarer we're no stranger to winning fleet awards. However, we have also won a community award for the year 2022! (There was a slight delay due to some judges facing real life delays).



Congratulations tom you all for helping us win in the 2022 Tournament of Sims. We have won an award for 'Great Star Trek'. Out of 88 sims that entered, we were one of 36 which won an award!

Here are the comments made on the Wayfarer who judged part of our mission Arista.

Judge 1:

'I love this story line. It’s disturbing and cunningly crafted. Bravo!

The only critique I can find is to differentiate between quotes and thoughts, perhaps using italics for thoughts. Several times I read what I thought was dialog and thought boy that’s a weird thing to say only to read on and find it was a thought. Other than that, though, great job!'


Judge 2:

'Overall the storyline was well written. The battle for the colony was chaotic but interesting to read. The summary of part 1 at the beginning of part 2 of the battle was appreciated. I swear I heard it in Majel Barrett's voice. The first post, "Developing a plan" was difficult to read. I understand the need for character introductions for the meeting. Really could use more description than just dialogue in posts. I also would have liked to know how the ship got into the situation of needing to defend the colony. It wasn't clear.'

Judge 3:

'Pros: The plot moves at a fair pace and the characters interact a lot to solve the problems presented.
Cons: Although the players seem to enjoy their characters, it's difficult to really connect with most of the crew as an outside reader.'


As your Captain I can't express how proud of all of you I am! I am beaming with pride! I want to thank you all for how you've made the Wayfarer such a safe and fun place to write, play and be!

Lets continue our mission to explore strange new worlds, develop new bonds, find new life and show the world what we can do!

» 2024!

Posted on Sun Jan 28th, 2024 @ 2:17pm by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

I know its a bit late... But welcome to 2024!

Sorry I've been rather busy with real life these last few weeks, it always happens this time of year. But, now lets really push forward and get back into writing again!

We're nearly done with our current mission 'Cracks in the Mirror'. I am hoping to have everything wrapped up for the end of January. Then we can move onto our next mission which I have planned for us! I am going to be opening up the next mission 'Return to Tyra' on February 1st.




Return to Tyra



Mission Description:

Its been over a year since the Dominion War ended. The Cardassian Union faced its biggest defeat in its history at the hands of the Federation, Klingon and Romulans.

The Wayfarer is dispatched to the Tyra system, where 98 out of 112 Starships belonging to the 7th Fleet were destroyed. Captain Misaki is given the task of inspecting the wreckage of the battle, retrieve any salvageable technology and retrieve any remains of the officers who were killed in action.

However, the Wayfarer crew doesn't realise that there are Jem'hadar survivors that have been stranded and don't realise that the war is over!




A big thankyou for all your patience and willingness of carrying on! Lets show the fleet just how good we are! Like always I intend for us to be the best ship in the whole of Indepence Fleet!

Regards

Captain Akeno Misaki

» IDF 22nd Anniversary!

Posted on Tue Jul 4th, 2023 @ 11:51pm by Captain Akeno Misaki in General News

So, today is the 22nd Anniversary of Independence Fleet, our little home away from home!

This year we as CO's were asked to produce a 'Movie Poster' for a little bit of a fun contest. I decided to make a poster for our current mission 'Cracks in the Mirror' and I enjoyed making it!

Well, it seems as if we won 1st place! Another win for the Wayfarer!

Here's the poster and the comments the judges made:



“I’m impressed by the technical skill and originality that went into this poster.”

“If you’re familiar with Anime movie posters, this is spot on.”

“Having anime Trek characters in the mirror universe with the crack showing the Federation and Terran emblems on different sides was brilliant.”

As much as I am overjoyed we got yet more recognition for our little ship, the important thing is that IDF has now been operating 22 years! So Happy Birthday IDF! Everyone have a slice of cake and wear a party hat!

You can see all the other movie posters, runner ups and comments here:

Now, lets get cracking on with this mission! I'm looking forward to see what we can do with our Mirror Selves!

Congratulations Wayfarer and Happy Birthday Independence Fleet!
