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.

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.

"Um...." George Cavendish scooted back a little on his sun lounger as the two women who had joined him started to reach out to touch him. "I'm, uh...I really don't think this is appropriate." He swallowed hard and pushed his sunglasses a little further up his nose. The twenty-four year…

Hayden already had the briefing room set up for the senior staff briefing when Tan’ato’s massive form entered the room. “Raktajino dark mocha, sir,” the blonde said, nodding to the steaming cup of Klingon coffee and dark chocolate sitting at the head of the table beside a padd.
