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".

Positions needed:

Chief Flight Control Officer
Chief of Operations
Chief of Science
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.

Former Nightingale commanding officer Alexis Tiva awoke from his medically induced coma as the Chief Medical Officer devised a way to help his body fight off a rare alien infection.
