Welcome to the USS Pioneer!

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.

» 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!

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!
