As Starfleet continues to rebuild, especially by bringing the new Inquiry-class ship on-line so quickly, a problem in finding sufficient experienced crew is occurring, even with the latest generation holograms there is still a need for people in the decision-making loop.
The USS Tanjura, named after an Adorian early starflight explorer, is one attempt to help overcome that bottleneck, crewed by recent Academy graduates (and possibly even some cadets), reservists lured back into service, transfers from the civilian fleet and even a few officers whose records have left them seeking redemption. Can this experiment work and help forge a new generation of Starfleet officers? Or is it another Federation idea filled with good intentions and doomed to failure?
Join this ship if:
- You are interested in exploring the foibles and potential of the new Inquiry-class ships. Things will go wrong and we will have to sort them out, usually in the middle of other things happening!
- You want to play with a range of crew from across the Federation, from newly assigned Cadets on their first cruise to old hands brought back into duty from the reserve, newly transferred civilians and officers one mistake away from being drummed out of service.
- You want to explore a new corner of space that we will jointly create within this framework:
Ashes of the Final War
As settlers and explorers move into [sector x by y] they are increasingly running into the remnants of the Final War that took place more than a millennium ago, a highly destructive conflict between the militant technologists of Noraxia (the Noraxians) and the Lohalian Dynasties, a much larger but less technically advanced civilization.
The Lohalians won the war in that they destroyed the Noraxians but it cost them their technological base as the Noraxians unleashed their vast arsenal of doomsday weapons in retaliation. In the aftermath, the Lothalains reverted to a prewarp civilization of isolated worlds some of whom are now returning to space for the first time in centuries.
For hundreds of years, no one was willing to risk their ships in this area as there were too many horribly destructive weapons still active. But time has rendered the area safer, there are habitable worlds to settle, attracting settlers from the Federation and refugees from all over, Orion, Romulan and Cardassian agents hoping to recover lost wonder-weapons, Vulcan archaeologists, Ferengi and free traders. Anything could happen and it will be our job to try and keep it from being anything terrible.
There are several plotlines I have in mind to get us started on our way but I want to work with the crew to develop storylines that interest you and engage your characters. Let us explore the galaxy together!

Far from home
A disastrous warp field/quantum has flung the Tanjura deep into the Lothalian sector, which was their eventual goal, and has damaged their dilithium crystals. It will be a challenge to get home with a minimal crew but they are Starfleet and will do their best.
Still seeking crew, happy to work with people to fit you into the current storyline.
Also, added ship rules to our discord.
