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".

» Writing Prompt

Posted on Wed Apr 3rd, 2019 @ 1:46am by Captain Tan'ato Tejera in General News

Here's a writing prompt to maybe give you something to spring off of for a post. A suggestion for using it:

- take the first word and use it in a sentence
- use that sentence to begin a story - incorporate each of the other words as you go along.

Random words:

knife
miniature
entrap
pasta
accept
cappuccino
rotten
cheat

Of course, this isn't mandatory, just a fun little exercise to do if it helps inspire the muse.
