USS Pioneer

Welcome to the USS Pioneer!

Please excuse our appearance while we update our site's theme.

Without the great pioneers of the universe who went out to seek new places, new things, and great knowledge, where would we be now? Would space travel, faster-than-light propulsion, transporters, or holodecks exist? The USS Pioneer is the second Pathfinder Class vessel commissioned by Starfleet and follows in the traditions of the great pioneers.

The Pioneer is assigned to the Fourth Fleet's Task Force 72 operating at the edge of the Alpha Quadrant and frontier space. Tasked with exploration, scientific research, and hazardous material response within the area of operations the new vessel will fully explore the potential of its designed mission platforms.

In order to complete the wide variety of missions tasked to the Pioneer, its diverse crew is experienced in many fields such as Environmental Sciences, Hazardous Materials, Engineering, and more. All members of the crew go through specialized training to be Hazardous Material Technicians as well as familiarization of various emergency response techniques.

» New Timeline Info & Biography Imports

Posted on 03 Apr 2019 @ 11:27 by Commander Ian Reeves D.Env. in Website Update

Nova has been updated to the latest version with some new features added to the system.

You can now import your characters biography and service record from your Bravo Fleet Management System profile. The look of the import handles the service record especially nicer than Nova does on its own and is pretty handy. I'd like to ask that all crew, please, use this feature and get your info on the BFMS updated as soon as possible. In order to hook up this you just copy the link of your published character profile URL into the field in the bio on Nova and it will overwrite the bio and service record fields that are native to Nova. You will have to delete the URL in order to access the native fields so make sure you get content out of it and place it on BFMS before saving the link in the system. (When I tested it the system saves the Nova content it is just not visible with the URL present.)

Additionally, our mission page has gotten an update where posts will list chronologically by timeline and can be viewed like an ebook on the website. Please be sure that ALL posts are dated and timed correctly. Mission notes will have information on what date correlates to the mission day. The post screen has an area to write the mission day number and below a menu to select the time. Note that the menu only has on the hour and on the half hour as options but you may write in anything you want. Please be sure to just write the numbers like 0000 and not 00:00 with the colon or it will affect the system. I have already updated the existing posts in this mission to use the new system and show on the website correctly.

Any questions, comments, or concerns please let me know.

It's been rumored, by a reliable source, that the newest release of Nova will be coming in the next week or two. Some new mods are also going to be made available for the system including one that will pull biography and service record from the BFMS to our website. As the service record function and biography look from the BFMS overwrite looks better, in my opinion, I would like to use this method going forward once we upgrade to the new version.

I would like to ask over the next couple of weeks if everyone could please be sure to have their biography up to date and posted to the BFMS I will attach you to our crew on BFMS and we can have a uniform look to the site when I upgrade it. Any questions or concerns please let me know.

» Executive Officer Needed

Posted on 19 Mar 2019 @ 05:52 by Commander Ian Reeves D.Env. in Sim Announcement

It is with regret that I announce our Executive Officer has resigned due to real life issues. At this time the XO will remain an NPC and used in character until the conclusion of this mission or a new one is appointed. Applications for the position of Executive Officer and Command Master Chief require a Discord interview with the CO prior to being accepted.

Anyone who is aware of anyone who may do well in a command role or interested into elevating into the command role themselves aboard the Pioneer please let them know of the position or I know of your interest as appropriate.

Keep up the great work!

Posted on 26 Feb 2019 @ 08:24 by Commander Ian Reeves D.Env. in Sim Announcement

Our first mission has been launched! We are currently continuing to develop the mission, however, we are going to start our posts to get the ship underway. Please be sure to select the correct mission when posting until the prologue closes. I would like to, if possible, complete all prologue mission posts by the close of business Thursday. Anyone who has any posts to complete or write prior to the launch of the ship on its mission please get a move on. Please remember the XO and I have asked that everyone complete a JP with both of us in the prologue.

Any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to tag @command in Discord.

I hope you all enjoy the first mission of the USS Pioneer!
