The USS Armstrong is a Saber-class starship assigned to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, under the command of Captain Carter Hall. *"If anything needs to be built, rebuilt, programmed, reprogrammed, assembled, reassembled, or just understood, we are the ones to call on. Just don't expect us to perform miracles...unless we absolutely have to."
On the USS Armstrong, our primary focus is on character development and story with missions having an important supportive role. We are a role play by Nova/email simulation. Although we do have posting requirements, we are generally relaxed, moving at a medium pace with the occasional slowdown.
Update: This sim has been shelved until further notice.
Last Mission: What Lies Within Us
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Assigned to the new SCE hub within the new frontier, the USS Armstrong leaves Starbase Tiberius within the Beta Quadrant, and heads towards the Delta Quadrant with a few civilian passengers, including potential cadets, along for the ride.
With not much to do, and time on their hands, to help pass time on their long journey, an age old prank war renews between security and engineering. There are paybacks to be made and new faces to be initiated.
The boxing match between the Captain and his new first officer continues. Will they come to some sort of understanding? Will they become a united front? Will they survive? How many will be caught in the crossfire among the Armstrong crazies?
A new face along for the ride just may steer this crew in a better, more healthier direction.

Hey everyone, come check it out. We have updated to Nova 2.3.2, and Steve created a new skin for the site. Thank you so much, Steve, it looks great!
I deleted all the other skin choices from the site so everyone should be seeing the new one. Let me know if anything doesn't seem to be right for any of you.
By the time the crew have the Armstrong A, Jen should have our original banner updated with an Intrepid Class, so we'll still be using it along with the new banner above.
New post starts are coming...

I am going on a family trip out of town from May 7th to May 14th. Taking laptop and I might be able to reply to tags here and there, but no guarantee. I will be checking my email regularly, and responding if anyone needs anything, when I can.

Okay, we have one or more serious errors going on here. Jps are not saving right, and people aren't receiving notices of them too. I have discovered more than one Jp affected. Jen and I are working on this issue, including updating the site, so please everyone hang in there.
