Welcome to the USS Artemis

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope."
-Robert Kennedy-
(As inscribed on the dedication plaque of the USS Artemis NCC-80103)


In the Federation any crime is considered especially heinous. In Starfleet the dedicated personnel who investigate the most vicious felonies are members of an elite crew known as the Criminal Investigations Unit. THESE ARE THEIR STORIES…

The year is 2397. The Federation is a peaceful utopia where all cultures live in harmony for the betterment of each other, or is it. The Federation and by extention Starfleet would have you believe that there is little to no crime in the utopia that is the Federation. However, crime does indeed run rampant so a unit was created to keep these most vicious criminals under the rug and out of site. This unit known as the Starfleet Criminal Investigations Service (SFCIS) is tasked with pursuing offenders of all kinds and bringing them to justice. As well as making sure that the Federation's image is maintained

Rear Admiral Declan Ford, an old veteran of space by this point is given the command of the unit and brings in Captain Marc Kidd to command the ship. This ship, a Luna Class vessel aptly named the USS Artemis after the Goddess of the hunt will be used to hunt down enemies to justice wherever they may be.

This intrepid crew will stop at nothing to see justice done. While they accomplish this great feat they will learn about themselves and what their limits are. Exploration will build Starfleet, diplomacy will build the Federation, but justice will prevail when Artemis completes the hunt. This crew will have to prove that where there is justice there is hope. Can their tiny ripple become a giant wave? In short, their mission echoes their dedication plaque.

Marc and his crew will prove that leading by example is the best way to make friends. If you think you have what it takes to investigate the vicious crimes, and prosecute the offenders the join the Artemis as it takes up the hunt for justice.

Greetings Everyone...

Just wanted to say welcome aboard the USS Artemis NCC-80103 and to the Starfleet Criminal Investigations Unit. The first mission is open for posting. This mission is for the crew to gather and get to know each other as well as what this sim will be about. It will be a nice lead in for our second mission.

Start posting away, I am always available for joint posts. Just a couple of things about posting. First dates... You should be arriving at Poseidon Station on MD001 which is July 7 2397. Remember the date for your own character timelines, but please put MDXXX and the time of your post in the timeline section. For the location box please put in the following format, room where post is occurring, deck, and location. If the deck is not applicable then skip it. For example: Captain's Ready Room - Deck 1 - USS Artemis or Forensic Lab - Andorra. Any back post that you may want to do such as character backstory before arriving at the station. Put the date that the post is occurring in the timeline box. Both Admiral Ford and Captain Kidd will be on the Artemis and the station as of MD001, although the Admiral will not be launching with the ship. You do not have to arrive on MD001, you can arrive whenever you want your character to.

Second, ending your posts. In the ooc section of the Wiki you will find a signature page. Please copy and paste the html code for your signature and place it at the bottom of your post. This is especially important on joint posts as it tells the other writers that you are done with the post and ready to send it up.

Take a look around the site, it is expanding every day. Thank you for joining the sim and I look forward to writing with you all.

For Now,
Steady As She Goes,

As Viessa walked to the Captains Ready Room, a small medkit on her hip as always, she noticed Admiral Ford walking towards her. Quickly she stood at attention and he nodded to her as he passed, a small frown in recognition however as if he had seen her before.

Nala was both kinda excited, strangely, and slightly nervous about meeting the Artemis's seemingly elusive Doctor... "Really, Nala? You can't remember what else the Doctor does? Get with it girl!" Nala mentally smacked herself as she made her way to Sickbay. "Welp, here goes nothing," Nala took a breath, and…

Unlike most days, the station seemed relatively quiet, which was troublesome as the Commodore walked the corridors. Looking out beyond the station, Tom sipped his coffee. There were no pressing matters, emergencies, or need for the Sector Commander. It was just him, his padd, and his coffee.
