CSS Enterprise: Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before
Welcome to the 3 time Bergen Award winning CSS Enterprise NCC-1701-G, the ninth and newest ship to bear the name and flagship of the United Confederation Fleet. The United Confederation Fleet is perhaps the most ambitious project ever conceived by the species of the Alpha Quadrant. After defeating an unknown enemy that threatened the entire Alpha Quadrant the major powers decided to band together and form a fleet that would be the first line of defense against any species known or unknown that might threaten the entire quadrant again.
Taking a page from Earth's history, the Romulans, Klingons, Federation, Gorn, Hydrans, Lyrans, Orion Confederacy, Cardassians, Kzinti, Tholians, and Talarians all agreed that a united force, similar to that of Earth's historic United Nations, was necessary to ensure the security of the Alpha Quadrant. This new force would have unrestricted access to any member species territories and would be lead by a council of Ambassadors from those member worlds. For the first time in history all the species would work and fight side by side with one another. It has been resurrected now as stronger foes appear and limited resources threaten to plunge the galaxy into darkness.
The CSS Enterprise is currently one of the most advanced ships in the UCF and is the only ship leased by all governments to incorporate not only Federation technology but Romulan and Klingon as well, and the only one of two ships with a lease for the Romulan parts, the other belonging to Astate Colony. Enterprise G is currently under the command of Captain Paul Errsi and heads the Exploration Task Force. The CSS Enterprise is an e-mail sim but you can chat with us in #USS-Enterprise, on the KDFSNet servers. Go To chat now to chat with us now. To see what positions are available on the Enterprise, please click on the "Personnel" link at the top.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the command team.
Feel free to look around the database at your leisure.
We hope you enjoy exploring the CSS Enterprise. The crew of the Enterprise would like to thank you for your visit, and look forward to serving with you on board the CSS Enterprise NCC-1701-G.

Welcome to 2415 everyone! (Okay, okay, we know it's 2015. That isn't a typo.)
Look for the new plot posting this next week and let's start logging.
Also, if you all will welcome back Lieutenant Jael Tilara. Our former Counselor has come on to help the CO with all of the paperwork running a ship like ours. :)
Angelus has also asked me to forward on a message about song suggestions for a video for Enty. Send in your votes so we can know what you all think. You've got two weeks...and you can suggest songs that aren't on the list below.
Now go start a log with someone you haven't written with one-on-one lately! :)
Posted on 241411.10 @ 02:12 by Captain Paul Errsi in SIM Announcement
Attention all hands,
As many of you have seen the announcement about Andrew's stepping down as head of UCF, I am sad to announce that the same applies for our SIM. As of Stardate 241411.10, I have assumed all responsibilities as Commanding Officer of the Enterprise due to General Archer's departure.
From UCF and UCIP before it, I have found myself writing with or near Andrew for most, if not all, of my simming career. His vision for Enterprise and UCF have placed an indelible mark on the story we continue to tell today, both as an organization and as a crew. How many of us can say we directly influenced so many stories of others for good, even on a plane like this virtual world?
We draw joy and even hope from telling these tales and being in community with one another. Andrew helped create that community for us, and now he's handed it to us to do with as we choose. On behalf of the entire Enterprise crew: past, present and future, we give more than any medal, ribbon or award could bring.
We give our grateful thanks, and our friendship.
Andrew, as another Captain of the Enterprise once said: In the best maritime tradition, we wish you clear horizons...and many happy returns to this family whenever you have the ability to do so. May you boldly go and find much that brings you joy.
Make it so.
Captain Paul Errsi

Its me again! I would like to have people give options for a theme song for the sim, in which I can put up on the main page. It won't be a link it will be a player that I can set to automatically start playing when anyone looks at the site. It will ONLY play so long as you're on the main page.
Gimmie some ideas, and we can have a vote up for them. Also, Admins in order to do this I need my user access increased.
Update: Since Paul pointed it out, I'd like to clearify. I can set it so the player is there and you have to his play to listen to it, not it just always starting when you go to the page. He also suggested maybe a new enty video and use the song we all end up choosing. Regardless of what route, the suggestions and then us voting will still be have to be done. :)

I sent this out, or tried, and evidently it didn't take, so I'm reposting it. Could Command please get back to me about this issue.
We've obviously dropped in activity to a particularly less than dead level. We've not even died and come back as Walkers. Which is unfortunate.
Life gets to everyone, but that doesn't excuse the fact that people can at least poke and say HEY! I'm here. Can I get a leway on posting, meaning the deadline for everyone whom is going to still participate. (Not just UCF Staff, but the sims). Everything. Not that this is my purpose for the message, but hey..we are lacking.
The UCF Channel in IRC has ME and ShipLCARS in it, at ALL times. And usually ONLY me. This needs to be corrected. We cannot expect people to join or want to participate if they never see anyone but myself in there.
(sorry, second tangent) On to the purpose of the message.
ShipLCARS, even IF we had more people in the IRC #UCF chan it cannot op anyone, or do anything else because it does not have OP status. I can run and input the information for people coming in whom are regulars on staff, or even, ship COs, Ship staff, ship crew, IF it were OP'd. Which this requires is Wolf, I know you're busy, but please when you have a chance, jump in and use the chanserv and give ShipLCARS SOP status so it can do its job. If we're writing off the #UCF chan, then let me know so I can tell Lewis that he can remove the bot from the channel because its taking up space and functionality from his server computer.

I have gotten replies to the muster message from:
Errsi is on LOA as of this week as Duquesne is currently LOA. For the people who have not replied back, we will be pulling you from the sim Wednesday.
For everyone else, we are going to skip ahead a little bit to having Enty back in our own time. Paul gave me a quick overview and it is going to be a future flash for Paul. Your characters will not have any memory of the crash and Enty will be in one piece.
Until Wednesday I would like to get some personal logs, assume Enty is still heading for Archer and the rogue Starfleet ship and crew.
I'll try to get a few logs out over the next few days myself :)
