Task Force 29 | June 2022 Report

phoenix-lalor, 3 July 2022

Well its half way through 2022 and look where we are at!

5 great games! Yes you read that correctly, FIVE!

This month we welcomed the ISS Vengeance to our ranks. The ISS Vengeance is a Mirror Universe Simulation set in 2371 and in the Delta Quadrant!

While gaining a new member of our team fills us with great happiness, we are saddened by the departure of our revered Admiral Zavareh Sepandiyar our former TFCO as he retreats back to his office within the Joint Fleet Command. Where he is sure to be working hard to drive Obsidian Fleet forward into the next few years. Thus, he has left me, Phoenix Lalor in charge, which is a bit worrisome for me, as I used to enjoy picking on him and his (Often late) Monthly Reports and I now expect the same back from him. So best not leave my reports too late then right?

  • Number of Active Sims:  5
  • Number of sims in Shakedown: 0
  • Number of players: 67
  • Number of posts: 308.91
  • Number of posts per player*: 4.57
  • Open Commands: Infinite

Infinite Open Commands?… Why you may ask? Because TF29, is where the magic happens!

This Task Force is so amazing it spans the corners of all Space & Time. Task Force 29 is home to the simulations that do not fit conventional Task Forces, from simulations in alternative universes, timestreams that deviate from the Prime or those who are just too unique to be under a standard group. We are proud of our simulations, striving to tell the stories that others have not, to go to the corners of Star Trek that remain dark and mysterious, to explore cultures rich and foreign to really bring to life the dream of Gene Roddenberry.

Your Brand new game could span Different Times, Different Worlds, Different Universes! The possibilities are endless! If you are interested in a command here email: [email protected] or message me on discord! I so want to help those CO’s who wish to join this TF, we are a warm and fun loving group, and cannot wait to have more friends to work with!

Since they started playing in March 2021 they have finished ✨ 47 – 3 hour sessions!✨ They have recorded (raw) 114.02 hours of game play which works out to around 19.02 hours per player (6 players) using the old metrics that’s around 820.94 OF standard Posts and 136.94 per player over the last year and two months.

Matt, their CO is so very proud of everyone and despite their being our lone V-chat they are a shining beacon to what can be accomplished by a determined CO and a wonderful crew!

Thus, the Unit of Merit for June 2022 is awarded to the USS Potemkin!

✨✨ Congratulations Matt and your cool crew!✨✨

One of my new initiatives is the implementation of a SIM SPOTLIGHT. This will endeavour to show the fleet at large what the games in Task Force 29 are up to. And I am not talking posting metrics, but I am talking character building storylines and the stories that make these groups great.

Also, I will be looking to do Character Spotlights, picking at random, a Character from one of our great games and highlighting them here.

These Spotlights will not happen every month but they will happen!

So to kick things off, I will start with the Simulation that has been in TF29 the longest out of the five currently there:

NX-05 Atlantis

NX-05 Atlantis

NX-05 Atlantis is set in 2155.

With the Xindi crisis behind them and the Romulan threat looming, the crew of the NX-05 Atlantis are tasked with making peace with the Xindi as well as holding together the new fledgling alliance with the Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites.

In a universe where nothing is set in stone, the ship is thrust far from home in a time where the Federation does not own half of a quadrant and technology is only just making space travel comfortable. Decades away from Earth on a ship not meant to be a generational transport. How long do Starfleet ideals and morals hold out against hunger and survival?

A ship with an interesting premise, this vessel has been a mainstay in TF29 and we look forward to seeing more from this Obsidian Fleet Award winning Simulation!

Sepandiyar promised me a Big Red Button…

So I have spent the past few days looking through the office of the Task Force CO and have yet to find that Promised Big Red Button. I did find his stash of weapons from his Marine days, and have boxed the majority up and sent them to his JFC office. I do admit to keeping a few of the blades as I need to flesh out my collection.

✨ Obsidian Day is Saturday 30th July 2022 from 18:00 BST in the Obsidian Fleet Discord!✨

Let it be known that I take bribes in the form of Chocolate, and signed photographs of the following – Captain Pike(SNW – as he was the ONLY good thing to come out of Discovery), Thor, Loki, Iron Man and the JJ Verse Doctor McCoy.
