Welcome to the ISS Yamato!

ISS Yamato is a Galaxy Class Terran Battleship set in the Kelvin Mirror Universe in the year 2369. Yamato is one of the Terran Fleets most modern and powerful Battleships. She is tasked with various assignments from quelling opposition to the empire to expanding and invading into neighboring territory.

If you haven't noticed, this is a Mirror Universe Star Trek sim. Unlike other Mirror Universe Sims, the Yamato is set in a future Kelvin Mirror Universe, a time and universe that has yet to have any thing written about it. Yamato is to be the first story of this universe fallowing the ISS Kelvins destruction at the hands of Nero and Kirks destruction of the Nerada with the ISS Enterprise NCC-1701. If your into a darker themed Star Trek, this is the place for you.

CONGRATULATIONS All. We made TF99’s Simm of the Month for November!

Here’s what they had to say:

“Kelvin timeline mirror universe sim is a fun read. To be a mirror of a mirror, and seeing how things unfold is a fresh and interesting prospect. My hats go off to the crew, for their creative approach to the sim.”

Wonderful news!

First off, let me congratulations you all on an outstanding performance so far on the ISS Yamato. Your combined writing effort and skill has made this not only one of the most successful mirror universe sims, but one of the most successful sims period. Thank you all for that.

Next, it has come to my attention that there is some confusion about the PG 16 rating. I hope to clarify this for you now. Violence has virtually no restrictions. Lets keep the gore down if you don't mind, this is not part of the PG 16 rule but your poor dear week stomach Commanding Officer's request. Next, language. The use of profanity really has no boundaries, however the use of the most serious of profane words, the all horrible and often just referred to by a letter, the F word is allowed in limited usage. As long as its once in a blue moon, I don't see this is in any violation of the PG 16 rating. Next is the sexual aspect. PG 16 allows for some sexual posting, however, vivid and expletive posts about the actual act of sex in what ever form is strictly forbidden. Now, there is clearly room to write in detail about the events leading up to sex but at that point you need to find some way to change what your doing or fade to black. I hope this clarifies the PG 16 rating. I have tried to put it in simple terms but I can give the official terms if you like.

Finally, I want to congratulate Cameron Garcia AKA Lieutenant Tomoe Nobunaga for being Yamato's Player of the Month. I am sure you all agree that the level of writing is above, beyond and amazing. We forgive the 'trek technobabble' difference cause lets be honest... its just technobabble any way. It does not affect just the professional level of writing that we are getting.

So thank you for your participation and being apart of this family. I hope you are all having fun and lets enjoy this because after this mission we will be undergoing a massive and major change to our world and our universe. Get ready.

I never enjoy seeing some one leave, but some times it happens. Rich, AKA Lieutenant Carter Kehoe MD has decided to step away from the Yamato. It is sad to see him leave, but we will keep a seat warm should he ever wish to return. We wish him luck in where ever his course takes him.

Many of you may have noticed I just closed the current JP. I want to wrap up this mission and get us started on the next one. I will allow just over one week for any between mission posts. Feel free to post interactions and such. Next mission will kick off on Monday September 30th. Title of the mission, "Every thing Shiny". Look forward to it, it promises to be new and exciting. :)

Crew of the ISS Yamato,

I want to welcome our newest arrival, Chief Science Officer Aurora Rhyan aka Jannet to the Yamato. As I was planing to do with your 3IC before they had to take an LOA I will be writing the CSO's on boarding.

Also, look for this mission to start moving more rapidly. Away team you have already started doing that more, thank you. We will be finishing this mission up by the third week of September at the latest. So I hope you all enjoy. I will give a week for mid mission posts then we will get to the next mission.

I hope you are all having fun and remember you can always talk to me if you have any issues. If its reasonable and logical I will likely even side with you, just ask our XO, he makes me bend more way than a twizzler. :P
