Welcome to the USS Astraea!

Welcome to the USS Astraea, a proud Pegasus Fleet Sim!

Honor, Loyalty, Integrity, Courage, Class.

The Year is 2394. The Dominion War has ended Voyager has returned home from it's long overdue mission, and Starfleet is at a time where it is looking to the future of exploration and technological advancement, while watching the moves of its former enemies, and being ready for the predators of tomorrow.

The USS Astraea, an Akira Class vessel under the command of Captain Abigail Laurens, is on its way to helping Starfleet achieve its mission. To explore uncharted territories and strange new worlds. Here there are no simple answers... there are no new and amazing borg defying weapon. There are no wonderful transwarp drives to travel anywhere in the galaxy in the blink of an eye. NO same tired routine of fighting one borg battle after another, or yet another ship lost in a far off quadrant.

So, what does happen on the USS Astraea?

Well, that's up to you. The USS Astraea is a meeting point for people with creative ideas, yet hold true to the ideals of Star Trek. It is a place not only to write, but to explore strange new people, to seek out new friends, and possibly new civilizations.

Teamwork and fun are the key ideals of being a part of a great simulation. It will be up to you to make this simulation great. You have the power to make things happen!

Recruiting today!

The USS Astraea is a PROUD member sim of Pegasus Fleet, representing Taskforce 56.

USS Astraea - NCC80819

Supplementary Report


CO's Report:

12 months ago today, history was made in Pegasus Fleet with the launch of the USS Astraea, NCC 80819. They say the first 6 months will make or break a sim, so to reach 1 year is a milestone to be proud of, a milestone that we have achieved together. On day one we hit the ground running, and in the past 12 months we have not only thrived, we have excelled. We have gone from strength to strength and in doing so, we have not only done ourselves proud, but we have done our Fleet proud as well.

We have shared our love with 24 players.
We have written a total of 740 posts.
We achieved a top post count of 163 posts per month (July 2019)
We were awarded the 2019 Sim Of The Year for Pegasus Fleet.
Our XO, Ichiko Gail, was awarded 2019 Executive Officer Of The Year for Pegasus Fleet.
We celebrated the promotion of Ichiko Gail from Lieutenant Commander to Commander.
We celebrated the promotion of William Rogers from Lieutenant to Lieutenant Commander.
We celebrated the promotion of Calvin Morgan from Lieutenant to Lieutenant Commander.

We have taken every challenge in our stride and we have forged on, and through it all, we have formed a group of Friends that I am proud to claim as my own.

Everything we have achieved, we have done together, and none of it would be possible without our players, past and present and for that, I very humbly thank each and every one of you for being part of our amazing success story.

Congratulations to ALL of you for a phenomenal first year, and here is to many, many more to come!


XO's Report:

For those who have been with us since the beginning, we hope to see you all through to the end. From the first tag to the next, and to all the posts to come, the Astraea wouldn't be what it is without all of you. To those who were with us at the beginning, we thank you especially.

Posted on Fri Mar 6th, 2020 @ 5:06pm by Captain Abigail Laurens in General News

Sim Information

February saw a somewhat quieter month, but we still managed to more than meet our goals! With a total of 39 posts for the month and a PPP average of 2.6 we're still well above where we need to be. Great work everyone!

Mission Information

Dead Moon

We successfully survived hell! We located the ship and we're back into clear space. Our away team is currently on the alien ship to see if they can determine who it belongs to. We have two Romulan warbirds on an intercept course, and Starfleet Intelligence on our tails.

And you're all about to have some big decisions to make, so be prepared!

Next Month's Challenge

This is something new that I want to try. I'm going to lay out a challenge every month for anyone who wants to step up, which I'm hoping is everyone!

This month's challenge comes in two parts, a duty log and a personal log.

I'd like to see a personal post from everyone. You can do a personal post, reflecting on something from your past. You can do a personal post with another player doing something non duty related. There are no restrictions or specific requirements, but write something that shows us a little bit of who your character is.

Secondly, I want you ALL to team up and write a post with someone you've never written with before. (Light Bulb: You CAN combine both these challenges into one post if you want!) This should be an EASY challenge because we have two new players on the ship, so feel free to jump in and make them feel welcome!

Please make sure posts are a good length! Try and hit that magic mark of 500 words for a single post.

Now.. moving on to what I know you're all REALLY waiting for!!!


Drum Roll Please...






CO's Merit

Awarded to Lieutenant William Rogers

» Ground Control Shuns Major Tom

Posted on Sat Feb 15th, 2020 @ 1:49pm by Captain Abigail Laurens in General News

Ground Control Shuns Major Tom

In a startling turn of events, Ground Control has opted to cut the tether and leave Major Tom floating in his tin can, in a most peculiar way after a startling outpouring of retributional satire became public.

When approached for the interview, Lieutenant Dan seemed to be struggling to come to terms with the news. “This wasn’t supposed to happen,” he sobbed into his ice cream. “Not to me! I’m Lieutenant Dan!”

When questioned over the provable falsehoods published by Outpost 42 News ( https://www.outpost42news.com/ ), Lieutenant Dan immediately leapt to the defence of his co-publisher and sometimes friend Major Tom by vehemently declaring; “We never published any proveable falsehoods! We were simply providing ‘Alternative Facts’!”

“Tell the truth, work hard and come to dinner on time, they are the only facts one needs,” responded long term simming advocate Gerald R Ford. “The simming dream does not come to those who fall asleep.”

Speaking out in defence of Major Tom and Outpost 42 news, John F Kennedy offered his own opinions on the matter. “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” He ended by offering his own words of advice to Lieutenant Dan. “Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.”

In a rare and somewhat surprising display of frustration, Winston Churchill spoke out in defence of those who had been wronged. “Simming is not a game, but serious business! But, as I’ve always said, if you want to have the final say in an argument, just tell your opponent that they’re right,” he iterated before dropping the mic and walking away.

Despite initially being unavailable for comment, we awoke this morning to find a communication from Major Tom himself. “If an individual wants to be a leader and isn’t controversial, that means he never stood for anything. In the immortal words of my friend and mentor, Tricky Dicky, ‘I can take it. The tougher it gets, the cooler I get’.”

Sim Status, Updates and Additional Comments:

Mission Updates for August:

It’s been a busy month for the entire ship, but I’m happy with performance. I see a lot of fun being had by all. I’m very happy with how things are going.

Other Sim Updates:

We have lost a few players over the past month, but I’m not concerned. We have a good number of players active and involved in the game and there is always new people coming along. It’s been a quiet month for us with a lot of focus being on other fleet events and things happening, and with the holiday season now approaching quiet is good, but we’re making progress, staying active and enjoying what we’re doing.

Happy Simming!
