Welcome to the U.S.S. Nightingale!



Space, the Final Frontier.

These are the voyages of the Nightingale. It’s continuing mission:

To apply all measures, for the benefit of the sick, that are required.

To remember that warmth, sympathy, and understanding outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

To remember treating the person and not the sickness.



But most important, to do no harm.



Year: 2396

The Nightingale, a medical specialty sim that has been tasked to take the ship and her crew to the rescue of those in need, to keep the light lit for those who need guidance and a safe haven.



We are accepting applications from all walks of life for Officer, Enlisted, and Civilian characters. For any questions, feel free to join our Discord channel or contact the Command Team.



The USS Nightingale is a part of Obsidian Fleet's Task Group 72A "The Grey Wolves".

» October Monthly Report

Posted on Wed Oct 30th, 2019 @ 4:45pm by Captain Tan'ato Tejera in General News

The Obsidian Fleet site is wonky and currently not accepting reports, so I am putting this here and will submit it officially once things are fixed:

Monthly CO Report

Sim Name + Date: USS Nightingale – October 2019
Sim Link: https://ussnightingale.stgalileo.com/
Sim Name: USS Nightingale
Task Force: 72
Task Group: 72C

Sim Updates:

Most all players are moved over to the new website. Once the current mission wraps up, we will start using it.

Crew Updates:

No new crew this month

Positions needed:

Chief Flight Control Officer
Heads of medical departments
Assistant chiefs
Junior officers and crew

Story Elements:

The USS Nightingale has been cleared of any negligence or wrongdoing in the disaster at Menope VII and is off the short leash Starfleet kept it on for the last year. With morale low, and freedom to return to work helping those in need, a little R&R is in order. The ship heads to Risa for a medical conference and much needed shore leave. But yearly evaluations are also coming due, so it’s time for medical and counseling check ups, phaser qualifications, and physical fitness tests on the beautiful beaches of Risa. But what will the crew do when conference guests start disappearing? Or dying?

One of the speakers at the medical conference has turned up missing and the crew have been asked to investigate. They discovered the scientist was last seen in the presence of a beautiful Orion woman in the resort bar.

And now a strange virus has infected a crewmember and triggered a quarantine emergency in sickbay, a few science officers have been reported missing, and the Captain has cancelled all leave and ordered crew back to the ship as they figure out what is going on.

Now the crew plans how to find the terrorists in the thick jungle wildernesses of Risa, which is proving more difficult than they anticipated, though they have found an old, crashed Starfleet shuttle with a mysterious past.

The Marines and Security trek through the jungle, following a trail to what they hope is the terrorist encampment. Meanwhile, the CMO, scouting ahead, falls into the clutches of a handsome terrorist.

It was warm when consciousness began to return to George. Well, it was Risa, so it was nearly always warm. As his eyes opened, he found himself lying on a bed of soft moss on a small mound inside of what appeared to be a small bower made of tree…

Alohiai followed her tricorder and the cable along the jungle floor. With the canopy high above, the jungle floor was actually fairly clear, except for some vines and lianas looping through the trees, occasionally blocking her path. Something on her scanner seemed to be moving. It was unclear. It could…

On the surface Alohiai listened in. There was something odd here, that was definitely the case. She could, but she had nothing but a light dress and a tricorder, and the cable went into dense jungle, and she could not flit away easily. She thought on the pros and cons…

Several hours later, the search was still ongoing. Finding anything matching what was known about Rowa’ni biology and differentiating it from the surrounding jungles was proving very difficult. There were several false positives that sent Alohiai out on a futile physical search. After the latest, Hayden showed up in the…

Tan’ato looked around the bridge. It was a bit more crowded this morning with a few more science officers at the spare science stations. The big Orion stood up and tugged on his uniform, stretching it across his massive muscles as he addressed the crew.

“Master Chief Mendoza was able…
