Welcome to a nu era in the simming universe of Trek

Image

In the year 2387, the Vulcan Science Consulate determined the Hobus Star would indefinitely breach supernova forthwith. Under normal circumstances, this natural phenomena would spark the scientific curiosity and interest among an endless plan of scientific minds. And it did. It was through this curiosity and close, scrutinizing study, that it was discovered the Hobus Stars' proximity to the Romulan home-world would be detrimental to the planets of Romulus and Remus. In fact, both planets would be absolutely and relentlessly decimated, utterly destroyed by the resulting fallout. All of the test results, sample figures, simulations and other data poured over day in and day out confirmed the planets' destruction unless should some miracle not be produced in an attempt to save that of Romulus and Remus.

It's now two months prior to the anticipated implosion of the Hobus Star. The USS Cortes is an Intrepid-class starship recently commissioned and inducted into Starfleet's 11th Fleet, codenamed Pegasus Fleet. None have yet had the honor or privilege of commanding this fine vessel, and as such, it's only the second of its class to be assigned to the 11th Fleet.

Currently touched-down at the San Francisco Shipyards, the Cortes awaits the arrival of its first crew. That crew will be you. Our RPG community is seeking interested and dedicated applicants who share a love of writing in an online collaborative-type setting.

At the moment, we're hoping to receive applications for the following Senior Officer positions: Executive Officer, Chief Helmsman, Chief Operations Officer, Chief Security & Tactical Officer,Chief Engineering Officer, Chief Medical Officer, Chief Science Officer and Ships Counselor.

Our journey's will take us into an era of a unique perspective on NuTrek unexplored as of late by any other RPG community on the net. What happened in the year 2387 during and after the implosion of the Hobus Star and the destruction of Romulus and Remus? This question, and many many many others, will all be answered as we faithfully and dutifully write for and follow the heroic adventures of the Cortes and her crew.

... in the year 2387, the devastating fallout of the Hobus Star has summarily destroyed the planets of Romulus and Remus. There are no words that begin to describe the anguish felt by the once proud Romulan people, at the annihilation of their homeworld. At a complete loss, newborn refugees lucky enough to have been evacuated or not present at the time of the planet's destruction, have returned to ground zero, searching for those loved ones still unaccounted for. In a desperate hope to make sense of it all, a species whose population once numbered in the billions, are now precariously slipping into extinction.

A dramatic change in the political makeup of the Alpha Quadrant is underway. With the Romulan Empire no longer a dominant power, the Klingon Empire now seeks to settle a centuries old dispute in glorious battle, and it will take all that the Romulan's can muster to keep the dogs of war at bay.

The loss of life is unfathomable. The sick and injured are many. And a once glorious Empire now lies in ruins.

Join the only RPG community currently established within the post-Nemesis era with a NuTrek flare.

... "All hands, this is the Commanding Officer. All stations are to report to blue alert status; helm, bring the atmospheric thrusters online, set inertial dampeners to maximum and prepare retraction of all landing gear upon dust off. Set course for Starbase 332 using coordinates zero-zero-three-seven-two mark six; once we've cleared Earth's atmosphere, take us to warp 6."


Never before has it been more of an exciting opportunity to become a Starfleet Officer or Crewman. The experience of a lifetime is setting course towards the great unknown, to discover new worlds and new civilizations. With the turmoil of years past now a distant memory, one for the history books, Starfleet has returned to the core foundation of its fundamental principle, deep space exploration and scientific discovery of the great unknown.


We're the crew of the USS Cortes and we're actively seeking those who have heard the call, the siren that all great explorers hear from within, beckoning them onward towards the undiscovered country.


Join the opportunity of a lifetime!

Terris III is an L-class, backwater planet that plays host to a remote research facility operated through Starfleet's Science Division. In tandem with Starfleet Medical, this particular compound is the leading research and development facility for projects classified and protected under the highest levels. Only those who need to know actually do. Due to the nature of their projects, the research facility has stringent orders to check-in with their case agent from Starfleet Command at least two times a week. They're now three day's overdue. Uncertain of what's happened, Starfleet Command has ordered the USS Cortes to Terris III to check in on the research facility. When the crew arrives, however, they discover a distressing turn of events with the most dire of consequences. All mission objectives aside, their primary purpose now is, not-so-simply, to stay ... alive.

Are you an avid role-player seeking a very unconventional simming experience? Do you prefer the nittier, grittier-side of role-playing, where the plots and themes are a bit more adult conducive? Are you encouraged by a role-playing game that emphasizes high-quality character and plot development with a NuTrek-theme? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, there's a remarkably unique simming opportunity awaiting you.

Pegasus Fleet proudly presents the USS Cortes, its singular role-playing community selectively attuned to those seeking a NuTrek-themed role-playing experience in the Post-Nemesis era. What exacerbates this uniqueness, is that the Cortes is centralized within the Star Trek universe, but with a nittier, grittier twist, one that is further compounded by a very unique cast of characters.

Expertly managed by a well-known veteran within the Star Trek RPGing-verse, players will certainly have the environment and resources to write in an established RPG where, like any expertly written Star Trek series can attest, your future beings today!

To learn more about about the Cortes, feel free to check out its website: http://cortes.forumotion.com.

Or you may contact the commanding officer, Commander Arunjezeb Ameen, at: vince.raposa@yahoo.com.
