Ghosts



The Golden Stars lurked in the shadows. The Consortium destroyed from within. The Dolmoqour used the best parts of yourself to betray your kin.

For the last two years, the crew of the Century-Class USS Black Hawk have been forced through the tumbler where rocks become precious gems. This ship and crew now are among the best and the brightest in the Gamma Quadrant. Some have started families, others have found love, and others find solace in the bottom of a bottle.

The USS Black Hawk is now returning to the unknown, no longer on missions to dig and investigate deep, dark secrets, but to boldly go where no one has gone before. Little do any of them know that what they will soon encounter will be their greatest test of all!

Are you among the brave, bold, and curious in the Federation? Do you want to be a part of a decorated sim that has received multiple accolades from the simming community at large, including being recognized as a 2018 Squiddie recipient? Then the Black Hawk is for you!

Hello, everyone!

Thank you all for being patient with me during my Discord break. I wanted to make sure that all of you, especially the ones that haven't heard, were aware of the Tournament of Simulations. We first entered for the 2017 calendar year, and placed among a dozen other entrants, taking home what was essentially a "Third Place" level.

We entered again for the 2018 calendar year, but did not place.

We entered a third time for the 2019 calendar year, using our "Truth and Justice" mission, starting with the away team being infected with the Dolmoqour parasites. Judging took a bit longer this year due to COVID, but the results were finally announced on the 4th of July.

The Black Hawk didn't just place. We received an "Outstanding Star Trek" award, and the top overall score! Congratulations to all of you who were involved in this mission, and helped us win this prestigious honor.

I also want to give a shout out to our fellow 22nd Fleet sims Starbase 400, Charon's Opus, LAFD, and Memory Theta for also placing in this year's tournament.

Thank you, everyone! I love this sim!!!

Posted on 26 May 2020 @ 9:01pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in General News

Hello everyone,

The month of May is officially (well, almost officially) behind us. Summer is almost here, restrictions are slowly lifting nationwide, and there's some sense of normalcy that is returning. COVID really messed with us all, each of us in different ways. Among its victories is our current mission. It was meant to be so much more than it currently is, and I thank each and every one of you for helping us push through. We're wrapping things up now, and our next mission will be starting soon.

In addition to all of this, we need to talk about Tagging Requirements.

When this craziness began, we suspended all tagging requirements while we all dealt with our lives. Now that that is ending, it's time to restore these requirements.

All Tagging Requirements will be reinstated on Monday, June 1, 2020.

This means that all tags must be answered within 72 hours and that you will need to have one published post every two weeks.

Full details can be found here: https://www.ussblackhawk.com/lcars/index.php?title=Simulation_Rules_and_Regulations#Posting_Policy

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to myself or Walsh on Discord. Thanks!

Oh, also! With a mission ending... time to nominate for awards! Don't forget about those!

-Andrew

Hi everyone,

As I'm sure many of you are painfully aware, unprecedented events are taking place all over the world. As each of us lead different lives, each of us are impacted by these events in very different ways. Because of everything going on, I am suspending tagging requirements for this sim until further notice. If you are able to participate in the game, great. Please do, as I know some of us are stuck at home and need the distraction. For those of us not stuck at home, I'm sure our professional lives are intensifying with extra tasks and duties in order to fall in line with what is going on.

I'm asking for everyone to be patient with and to understand each other. This storm shall soon pass, and the time to rebuild normalcy will follow.

As always, if you have a question or concern, please hit me up on Discord.

Happy simming, everyone.


» Staffing Changes

Posted on 14 Feb 2020 @ 6:07pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Sim Announcement

Hello everyone,

This has been an eventful week. Due to recent departures, the command team has been working pretty hard on figuring out our next steps and how to move forward. Turnover on Star Trek sims is nothing new. We've all been there. It happens both between and during missions. This particular instance was difficult since these departures could not just be whisked away and ignored. So, a couple things are going to happen.

First, I have been given permission by both players to write them our of our story. I will be dealing with this in an upcoming post.

Second, we have had to determine how to move forward with our medical staff, and whether or not we would look internally or externally. After discussing with the writers behind the two PCs in the medical department, we have decided to move forward by placing Lieutenant Jennin Rhula (Teix) into the Chief Medical Officer position. The "nitty gritty" details are still being worked out, and this will be handled In Character very soon.

In the meantime, gameplay will continue. Those of you who still need medical checkups can see Doctor Milo or Doctor Rhula, however it works out for you. If you have any questions, please be sure to let us know.

Thanks, and happy simming!

-Andrew / HG
