As the first Starfleet vessel constructed in the Gamma Quadrant, the USS Nogura continues the proud traditions and reputations of previous vessels to bear her name. A brand-new ship with the latest technologies and a fearsome reputation to live up to, the Nogura is sure to make her presence felt in the space lanes of the Alpha Quadrant following her transfer to Task Force 72 and the home quadrants. But even in the traditional heartlands of the Federation, the course of peace never runs smoothly...

Threats linger around every corner with enemy agents threatening to dismantle the fragile peace process at every opportunity. A new threat lurks in the shadows, eager to play its role in the galaxy whilst old threats seek to reassert themselves.

With her long-serving commander promoted to pastures new, and her subsequent replacement revealed to be a Consortium traitor, a new man takes the reigns of arguably the finest ship to grace the Federation. A man reputed to be a fearsome tactician with years of experience in command of his previous starship, Captain Colby Drayton has been chosen to hunt down those who lurk in the shadows and expose all who seek to destroy everything the Federation has accomplished…

Nogura is a 16+ Play by Nova Simulation set in the year 2389, deep in the heart of Federation space.

A proud multi-time recipient of the Sim of the Month Award.
