USS Scorpio

A New Era of Exploration

S4E4: Brave New Worlds

Location: The Reliquary

The USS Scorpio is an Ascension Class Starship in
Bravo Fleet's Task Force 9
Guardians of the Gate

It is the year 2389 and the Gamma Quadrant has changed fundamentally. With old enemies becoming friends and violent opposition to the Federation presence pacified a new era of exploration is upon us. Trade has never been as high and more and more settlers cross the wormhole to create new lives in the Gamma Quadrant. However as the Federation discovers more and more about this mostly unknown quadrant it is not only good they find. An ancient threat lies in wait.

Are you an explorer? Are you a warrior? The time to shine is now, in these times all can become legends.

» Implementation of GDPR

Posted on Sun May 27th, 2018 @ 8:14pm by Captain Alice Griffin in General News

Hey All,

As many of you have seen a new law went into effect within the European Union last Friday that significantly expands the control persons have over their data. As the USS Scorpio is both hosted within the European Union and services residents of the European Union I have taken the steps to bring us into full compliance. As such we have implemented wide-ranging privacy policies. These can be found at and bring us into compliance with not just the European laws but also those of most democracies such as Canada and the United States.

It is now also possible for a user to delete their account when resigning from the Scorpio. I have already deleted all user accounts that were placed on an inactive state before.

While the law is aimed at Europeans, I have taken the step to implement its safeguards for all our users.

Posted on Wed Apr 18th, 2018 @ 3:14pm by Captain Alice Griffin in Website Update

Hey All,

I have been informed that more than a few users have experienced issues with the mailing when saving a post, it seems something is going on with our external mail provider that makes the website unable to send it. As a temporary solution I have set the website to use its own mailing system. As a result however mail received from the Scorpio may end up in your spam folder. Please do keep an eye on that and if needed whitelist the Scorpio. We will implement a fix for the issues as soon as possible.

Hey all,

It is with a distinct pleasure that I can announce that the Player of the Month Award for Task Force 9 has gone to our very own CAG, Lieutenant Commander Leland Rogers for his extensive involvement in the sim and excellent writing quality. This is the second time in as many years that he has received this award and I'd like to congratulate him on the achievement.

Hello all,

As I am fairly convinced all of us right now are either on Christmas Eve or Day I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope you are spending your time with your loved ones. Days like these I am especially grateful for all of you and look forward to many holiday seasons to come.

Posted on Tue Dec 5th, 2017 @ 5:02am by Captain Alice Griffin in Sim Announcement

Hello all again,

Quite a bit faster than I expected I've gained a full picture of everyone intending to stay aboard. To all of you, thank you for your renewed confidence. I am sure together we will have quite some stories to tell. I will keep the current R&R mission going until the New Year to allow us to start fresh in a new year both IC and IRL and for all of you to enjoy this inevitably busy month.

I am still expecting a few people to apply who have announced their intent in the past two days so you can all look forward to a few new faces which should get most of our important positions filled.

Personal Log, Lieutenant Commander Winthorpe.
