Welcome to the USS Shanghai!

Exploration is the driving force of Starfleet, the core and ever-present principle born into every Starfleet Officer. To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before – that is what we are driven to do.

The USS Shanghai-A was chosen to lead a group of explorers beyond deep space and to a new, unexplored section of the galaxy far rim-ward from Federation lines and the Reayan Transit Corridor. With fresh retrofits and a new crew she set out on a mission of exploration with little more than a small cadre of ships in tow. Deep in the Auriga Perseus section of the galaxy, the Shanghai watched over the early stages of the colony efforts. While exploring this new world something happened, though - a local power known as the Protectorate, a union of numerous species from the region with a reckless use of technologies such as chroniton weaponry and nanotech, set upon the Federation explorers with no obvious provocation. The ensuing battle was quick, but it had lasting implications and would end with stranding the explorers. Now, with only a trickle of reinforcements from the Fleet, Shanghai and her crew has a clear path laid out before it: protect the fledgling Golovin Colony, explore the region, repair the damage dealt to the region, and try to find common ground with the peoples they find there.

The USS Shanghai is an exploration focused sim, set just beyond the known galaxy. The sim hopes to foster an environment where players can help build our little section of the world, from helping design alien worlds and phenomena, to the civilizations and technologies they’ve discovered, and the exploration of characters within that setting. The Shanghai was founded in 2009 and has a dedicated crew with a long history. We are always looking for new members, so if you find yourself interested in the simm, send us a message or application!

USS Shanghai NCC-82941 – Task Force 93, Forseti Group

::: Current Mission :::

First Contact with the Protectorate was disastrous, but a second chance is made possible as Seppala receives an invitation. Upon arrival, things quickly take a turn for the worst - a crew member and an old face are taken as political hostages, and latent Borg nanites in Protectorate technology begins to cause a virus to spread like wildfire through the planet's population. Can the Shanghai aid the planet in time, or are they facing a possible planetary assimilation event?

» New Mission - "Of Persephone"

Posted on Thu Feb 22nd, 2018 @ 5:30pm by Captain Sun Mei Xiang in General News

Hello All,

We've wrapped up the previous mission for the most part, and we'll be starting the next mission this weekend!

Our new mission is "Of Persephone", which will center on a major discovery under Golovin colony. So we'll be working on exploring the colony and Seppala a lot this mission. Expect some guests, though. It will likely be a shorter mission. Introduction posts will begin to roll out over the next few days as that mission begins.

In some other news though, Nikolas Laommiorvatovovich is going to switch to on extended leave for the time being, due to the player's request.

As always, if anyone needs anything or has any questions or ideas, please let me know.

-N. / Sun
