Welcome onboard the USS Wayfarer!

The year is 2376, and the Dominion War is finally starting to feel like a bad memory. Starfleet are able to refocus their efforts on exploration for the first time in many years.

The Intrepid-class USS Wayfarer has been tasked with continuing this mission of exploration and discovery on behalf of the United Federation of Planets.

Captain Dick Sprague invites you to join him and his crew as they explore the unknown together. Will you join them and truly go where no one has gone before?

The USS Wayfarer is a PG-13 play-by-Nova sim.

Positions on the Wayfarer are open to all applications, no matter your writing level or experience. We are eager to have you join us on our adventures through the cosmos.

Why not hit that Join button and give us a go?

Let's welcome aboard our new Chief Science Officer: Ensign Deborah Bennett!

For story purposes, let's place her in "Reality C" for our current mission: Those who were never assigned to the Wayfarer before the Wayfarer was destroyed in the last mission.

Also, we could still really use a CMO to fill out our crew. If you know anyone, encourage them to submit an application.

Just a reminder to everyone that this sim and all sims in IDF are not to exceed PG-13. If you think some content you want to post might be questionable or exceed PG-13, you've already made your decision--don't post it. :)

We want this sim to be accessible to everyone.
