Threats linger around every corner...

As the first Starfleet vessel constructed in the shipyards of 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 the home quadrants. But beyond the traditional heartlands of the Federation, the course of peace never runs smoothly...

Many light-years to the south-west of Sol exists an isolated, desolate region, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by large swathes of Federation, K’Zinti and Talarian territory. A lawless hotbed of activity filled with many worlds and species all lightyears apart, all free to come and go as they please. The area is known by many names, but to Starfleet it is known simply as ‘The Wastelands’.

No fancy fleets have been assigned there in decades, no new installations built in almost a century and only a handful of populated Federation colonies lie on the periphery of Federation space. Starfleet and the Federation have very little reason, and even less desire, to be there - until now. For in the depths of the Wastelands, a large region of space that is sparsely populated by habitable worlds, species, and powers, threats linger around every corner. Enemy agents threaten to dismantle the fragile peace at every opportunity whilst a powerful foe lurks in the shadows, seeking the right opportunity to make their presence felt once again. The people of the Wastelands, isolated and full of resentment towards the rest of the galaxy, do their best to thrive under sometimes perilous conditions. Starfleet has become embroiled in a race against the clock to make inroads into the area before the Alrakis Pact can claim new members. An area once lacking any strategic value has suddenly been thrust into the middle of a bitter feud, but no one can foresee the danger of the whispers in the dark…



Nogura is in its fourth year and is a Play by Nova Simulation set in the year 2389.




A proud multi-time recipient of the Sim of the Month award in her previous home fleet.

Mission: Episode 7: Into The Fire
Posted on Sun May 12th, 2019 @ 12:59pm by Captain Colby Drayton

The old style transporter bay of Starbase Two-Fourteen was filled with the bright yellow glow of her transporter beam as a deep, almost whirring sound filled the room for the fourth time in quick succession. Once the sound subsided and the glow dissipated, Captain Colby Drayton stood on the transporter…

"=/\=We're on final approach to Starbase Two-Fourteen Captain. Recommend slipstream shutdown."

Words from the familiar voice of the ships Slipstream expert reverberated around the bridge and drew the attention of all in attendance. Drayton inched forward and sat on the edge of his chair, his eyes transfixed on the main…

After she was discharged from Sickbay, Meibei was strictly ordered to bed rest by the doctor, the captain and the XO separately and with considerable force. The XO in particular repeated that order at least twice a day, usually with some light-hearted threat of retribution.

Naturally, Meibei completely ignored them.…

Travelling at Slipstream velocity was something that would take a lot of getting used to for the crew of any Federation starship, and it certainly wasn't an every day occurrence, but in order to make their rendezvous on time, Drayton had upped the ante so to speak and permitted the…

We’re due to arrive at Starbase Two-One-Four in about an hour. I’m taking a few minutes in my quarters to have a late lunch and retrieve some old files from my Foreign Service days. I’m looking forward to this new phase of the mission. And to seeing…

My time aboard the Nogura has been brief but it has been undoubtedly the nature of this ship is to be placed on the front lines; no doubt she is being used to make a clear statement to the Alrakis Pact and their recent operations. I…
