USS Sentinel

The year is 2389 and the Federation is is turmoil.

It has only been a year since the destruction of Romulus in the Hobus hypernova. The Romulan Star Empire has rejected further Federation aid and resealed its borders, citing incursions by the Klingons and the Gorn into Romulan space as the reason. The Klingon Empire is resurgent. Smelling blood, they have launched several invasions into Romulan space, annexing several systems. The Romulans and the Klingons stand on the brink of war. A war the Klingons now believe they can win. Stuck in the middle of this brewing conflict is the Federation, fearing a shift in the balance of power and trying to maintain peace between two races who resent interference and distrust all.

In the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion are disquietingly silent. Slowly contracting and releasing formerly occupied planets to independence. Nobody knows why, or what their motives are, but the Federation senses opportunity and sends several ships, including the USS Sentinel, on diplomatic missions into the Gamma Quadrant.

Welcome to the USS Sentinel, I am Commander James McCullen. The USS Sentinel is an Intrepid-class starship that is part of 22nd Fleet. The Sentinel's primary focus is exploration and science-based discovery, but with the current state of the galaxy, we may be called upon to carry out other duties for the Federation.

The USS Sentinel is a play-by-nova role-playing game set in the Star Trek universe. If you are interested in joining our simulation, whether you have experience or not, you are welcome.

Current Mission - Reaching Out in Hope

After being recovered and going through a bow-to-stern restoration and refit, the USS Sentinel heads out on her first active-service mission under Captain James McCullen. The ship is to proceed to the Gamma Quadrant on an open-ended diplomatic and exploratory mission. Their purpose is three-fold - to seek out those races formerly beholden to the Dominion and introduce the Federation as a viable future partner and to formalize relations with those willing. To increase Federation presence in the Gamma Quadrant. And to explore, to discover that which has not yet been discovered.
