New Sims – USS Andromeda and USS Merlin

Greetings everyone,  

The last few days have been great ones for Zodiac Fleet and I am very excited to share some important news with each of you today. We have two wonderful new friends joining us in our adventures among the stars!

The Starship Andromeda is a Galaxy Class Starship that is focused more on the grass roots of Star Trek: peaceful exploration and seeking out strange new worlds and new life. Headquartered in the beautiful and dangerous region of space known as the Briar Patch, Andromeda takes place 20 years since the reunification of the Ba’ku and Son’a. Medical advances have led to more of the Ba’ku widening their horizons and venturing out beyond their planet, but tensions still exist between these two races. The missions of the Andromeda are epic and her crew is simply out of this world!

Not to be outdone the mission of our second new arrival is just as fascinating, to borrow the phrase of a dear Vulcan Science Officer.

The year is 2395 and the Starship Merlin has been launched during a time of great instability.  An Excalibur Class Starship designed not only as a command carrier, the Merlin is a deep space explorer that has been outfitted with incredible technologies that keep her on the cutting edge of adventure! From her incredible defense forces, teams with the latest scientific equipment, not to mention the largest diplomatic amenities that a ship could ever handle, even her compliment of civilian specialists would be impressed. This beautiful giant has been given one of the most important missions in the galaxy. She is to protect an unknown area of space recently acquired by the Federation at the farthest borders of the Romulan Empire and to keep the peace, with a renewed focus on exploration and discovery. It’s sure to be a wild ride!  

I am certain that I speak on behalf of all of Zodiac Fleet when I say how excited we are to welcome you to our growing family of games.

Please feel free to welcome and discuss both Andromeda and Merlin in the #fleet-discussion channel.

Welcome to your new home Andromeda and Merlin. I hope you enjoy your time here.
