USS NOGURA

The road to hell is paved with good intentions...


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 Gavarian Corridor following her transfer to Task Force 72 and the home quadrants. But on the Gavarian Frontier, 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 development of the Corridor whilst old threats seek to reassert themselves. An agreement for exploration has been signed, but the defence of the helpless remains top priority.

With her Captain promoted to pastures new, a new man takes the reigns of arguably the finest ship to grace the Federation. An Andorian who is reputed to be a fearsome tactician with years of experience at Starfleet Tactical and in command of his previous starship, Captain Thalek th’Zorati 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 the Gavarian Corridor.



Current Mission

"...and you say the engines will be fully operational?"

Commander Cordelia Millarini stood before the commanding officer of the Ulysses with her hands clasped behind her back, watching him intently as he read her report. It had only been a few hours but the team in engineering had successfully restored…

Entering the bridge with Admiral Hanson in tow, Captain th'Zorati headed across to his command chair where Commander Neprem was waiting for them. He'd filled the Admiral in on everything; the Benzite Consortium agent who had been their target, fleeing for the wormhole and his potential links to the Alpha…

Turbolift doors opened on deck 5 and out stepped a rather cross Trill, followed closely by the Bajoran Strategic Operations Officer. Tara wasn’t overly fond of the news she had just received, not that Garen told her much at all, which made her all the more terse when she considered…
