The USS Venture (NCC-71854), one of Starfleet's finest vessels, is also one of its most famous. Having served with great distinction during the Dominion War under the command of Admiral Hastur, the Venture has become a familiar face around the core worlds of the Federation, keeping the peace and serving as a guiding light for the Federation's diplomatic corps. In recent years, her legend has continued to grow, her reputation following her on her voyage through the dangerous, unchartered Gavarian Corridor.

A symbol of strength and longevity, of power and status, the USS Venture serves in Bravo Fleet's Task Force 93. Under the command of a eclectic band of explorers, Venture will patrol the volatile area of space along the border of two great empires, foster peace in the region and forge her way forward, into the 'Undiscovered Country'.

The USS Venture is a Play by Nova simm set in the year 2388. Events taking place follow Star Trek, Bravo Fleet and Task Force canon and should be treated accordingly. Anyone wishing to join, should visit the LCARS Database and its Official Protocol section first.

Good news everyone!

In this day and age health care is a real concern. With premiums from Ferengi insurers at an all time high and all the best Vulcan Doctors not accepting new patients it's hard to keep yourself in tip top condition. Thankfully for those of us aboard Venture we no longer have to worry. I'd like you all to join me in welcoming Alex playing Lieutenant Fyvel Kenohya and James playing Lieutenant Gregory Helms our new CMO and ACMO respectively. They'll be taking care of our crew's well being and possibly shaking things up along the way. Both are veteran writers and come to us with a lot of experience and creativity so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

We'll be getting them both officially aboard soon but in the mean time feel free to get started on those medical check ins! We're all a bit behind on our annual physicals. ;)

Posted on Fri Jan 27th, 2017 @ 9:25am by Captain Makayla Perin in Announcement

Hey everyone!!

We've got a lot of exciting news for you today, as you can tell from the title we've got a series of promotions to announce today.

First we have Petty Officer Lumo Elnora played by James. A long time player on our sim, James has done an amazing job developing Lumo's backstory and I'm proud to promote him to the rank of Petty Officer First Class. I can't wait to see whats coming next and how it will effect the larger storyline aboard ship!

Next we have a bit of an interesting promotion, two in fact. As you all know a sim's admin team usually comprises of at minimum a CO and XO acting as GM and AGM. Today I'm proud to announce that we are expanding the command team! Lieutenants Sinara (Sinny) and Sloane (Stephen) have accepted our offer to become 2XO & 3XO respectively. Kos and I are so excited too have them join us, especially as we head into our next mission; we can't wait to see what creativity they bring to our mission planning.

And lastly but certainly not least I come to our final promotion. I don't think this will come as a surprise to anyone but I'm extremely proud to announce the promotion of our Executive Officer Khalana t'Lehu played by our very own Kos to full Commander. A constant rock for the sim there's no way we'd be able to do all we've done without her. Always ready to take on a storyline or get things started, I honestly don't know if I can say enough to truly emphasize just how lucky I am, how lucky we all are to have her with us!

Congratulations everyone, and as January comes to a close let's have a great February!
