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: 2395

The Nightingale, a medical specialty sim that has been running for three years, 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".

» A Fond Farewell

Posted on Thu Jul 12th, 2018 @ 6:37am by Captain Tan'ato Tejera in Sim Announcement

Our Chief Engineer Laura French has, unfortunately, had to resign due to RL time constraints. I thank her and wish her well, and she will be welcome back any time.

If you have any JPs still in the works with Laura, see if you can wrap them up without her and post them, or delete them.

Thank you.
