Announcing The Fleet's Next SIMM!

Announcing The Fleet's Next SIMM!

I'm sure you've all heard the rumors of a new ship that have been circulating the fleet for some time. Now I can put those rumors to rest and officially confirm that Shadow Fleet's next SIMM will be named the USS Gibson.


The Nova-class USS Gibson

I am delighted to announce that the Gibson will be a Nova-class vessel, the first since the original USS Discovery which was destroyed (and subsequently renewed as an Akira-class starship) back in 2008. A science vessel, this new SIMM will primarily focus on scientific exploration and moral challenges akin to those classic Star Trek episodes we all know and love.

Her commander will be someone with whom many of you are familiar. A seasoned, organized player with years of role-playing experience under her belt, please congratulate Commander Riley T. Munro as being selected to command our next starship.

The full crew roster and further details surrounding the launch of the Gibson will be announced in the coming weeks.

*SQUEAL!*

Omigod, a science vessel! This is what Krol signed up for! Exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilisations!

...But I'm tied to the Churchill. *Grumble*

Joking :P

Congratulations, Ms. Munro! Lead your men well!

Ooh, a Nova-Class! And a Science vessel... Maybe we can expect some good old' TNG-style exploration episodes? :)

Many congratulations to Commander Munro - I am sure that she will excel, and earn her 4th rank pip with relative ease. :)

Congratulations on the promotion, Riley! I'm sure you'll be able to rekindle the good times that everyone had on the Port Royale, and make them even better. :D

While I'm sad to lose a great XO, I can't think of anyone better to commander her!

Also Nova class, anyone else nostalgic?

Would almost be fitting if the new captain shouted "Stay the course!" at some point.  :P

A couple of the people on the Equinox were jerks but most of them, the captain included, were just tragic characters in a bad place. One bad decision leading to another. Still the Nova class design was always a beauty, nice to have one around.

It just dawned on me that I won't have you Scott! I just felt completely crushed... I will miss you Captain.

And thank you everyone for the congrats and best wishes... can't wait to embark on a new simm and make some memories.
