Now that I've got your attention...

We are super excited to announce the next incarnation of our Feature Simm.


When a team of Misfits, Criminals, and Disgraced souls are offered a second chance, they may prove that IDIC truly is a recipe for success... just not in the way Vulcan philosophers ever imagined.

Mission

Mission Title: Down Payment

Synopsis: When an ex-Starfleet Captain aspires to become a civilian freighter operator, he seeks a loan from a Bajoran criminal financier.  But he finds that Federation Credits do not trade well in the dark corners of the galaxy, and something more is required.   Fortunately, the Bajoran criminal has a proposal.  He recently had an associate 'detained' by the Orion Syndicate, and he wants them back.  He knows where they are being held, but he needs an experienced ship commander to perform the extraction.   If the Captain accepts the job, the financier will provide a ship and crew (who are each indebted to him in some way.)  If they are successful, the Bajoran financier will approve the loan, and the Captain and his new crew will be in business.

Character Types

 Characters should be fringe types who owe something to a shady Bajoran underworld figure named Jor Trem.  The characters can owe him money, favors, or blood.  Whatever it is, it will become the 'hook' that holds the crew together, much like a career in Starfleet holds traditional Trek sims together. 

We'll be looking for a Pilot, Engineer, Doctor, Security/ Cargo Specialist, along with any other fun ideas you may have. :-)

If you have questions about the mission or simm itself i recommend you contact Solluk. In order to sign up please contact me via PM with your role of interest as well as a short blurb about your proposed character. You'll have an opportunity to write a full bio, if you'd like. In a special place on the SIMMs board.

Special thanks to Solluk... This feature simm idea was all his idea and we will be facilitating it together.

Let us know if you have any questions or need any further information.

And as Kirok would say. Shadowfleet Forever!

This sounds great!

Approximately what time frame or era are we looking at?

2200's? 2100's?

Hello!

This is a 'modern' era sim, per the current Shadow Fleet Timeline.

The sim ship itself is meant to be about 30 years old at the time of the game.

Cheers!

This sounds like Jett's alley.  Unless you want a different Character. 

He would be ideal Pilot, but he can be versatile if needed.

I'll work up a character and I might throw him in. Should be fun!

Hello!   

I don't know Jett's story, but if he's a pilot and beholden to an underworld figure, he's perfect.  ;-)

Though I notice your signature tag suggests he has his own ship, so I wouldn't want you to feel demoted to working for someone else.

Cheers!

This sounds intriguing...

How about a defrocked Vedek? Perhaps he stole temple money or goods. (For a good cause, of course.) Now he has lost faith in both the prophets and Bajor.

On board ship he would function as councilor and priest. The Bajorains are very superstitious and I do not see them undertaking a mission like this without invoking the prophets.

I can work on it this evening after school/work.
What do you think?

I'm interested. I'd love to play an Orion of some kind, going up against the Syndicate.
