USS Valkyrie

Welcome to the USS Valkyrie


Our Sim


The USS Valkyrie is a Centaur Class Starship. Her mission is primarily one of exploration and discovery, but she also provides emergency response and defence to the United Federation of Planets and it's citizens.

The year is 2393, and after years of rebuilding after conflicts with powers such as The Dominion & The Borg, Starfleet is ready to push back out into the unknown, throw back the veil of mystery and make new discoveries. At the same time, there are fresh challenges facing the fleet close to home, from dangers on a planetary scale to fresh tensions with bordering empires.

Based out of Deep Space Twelve, a station on the edge of Federation space, our missions can range from exploration to search and rescue to diplomacy or even combat, so there should be something for everyone. We aim to provide an engaging sim with something for every character to do. Creativity is encouraged, if you have an idea for a mission, a story or a subplot, we'll try our best to make it work within the sim.

If you're interested in joining our sim, we'd love to have you aboard, just fill in one of our applications. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Once again, welcome aboard the USS Valkyrie!

Captain Charles Kincaid
Commanding Officer

Please welcome back Sean, who is returning to the Valkyrie to play our new Chief Security Officer Jexasi Rai.

"Oh," Mirim said, seemingly a little surprised by this admission since she had been certain there was something more between them and Rafan had just been too shy to introduce her as his other half. Though that might have brought a whole slue of difficulties all its own and she…
