Welcome to the ISS Vanguard!

Welcome to the Terran Confederacy.

The year is 2380, welcome aboard the ISS Vanguard, an Insignia class Cruiser tasked with protecting the fledgling Terran Confederacy and to wreak havoc on a Klingon/Cardassian Alliance that has begun to tear itself apart.

The Terran Empire is no more, crushed under the boots of the Klingon/Cardassian Alliance. It has been twenty years since Terra had fallen to the Alliance, the conquerors slowly became the conquered. With no great enemy to fight, the Klingon/Cardassian Alliance started to turn on itself, as old, long forgotten rivalries started bubbling to the surface. In that void, the seeds of Rebellion were sewn. After a string of successes, the Resistance captured the mining station Terok Nor, throwing the Alliance off balance and giving the Rebellion the breathing room it needed.

For the first time since the Fall, Terran's are building starships of their own, starships designed to take the fight to the Alliance and establish themselves a place in the galaxy.

The ISS Vanguard, the newest Strike Cruiser of the newly established Terran Confederacy. It is crewed both with Military and civilian personnel tasked with liberating the oppressed and taking the fight to the Alliance wherever they may be.

While the Alliance is preoccupied, new unseen dangers have begun to surface to threaten the tenuous foothold the Terran Confederacy has established.

G'day Crew.

It has been a long seven years but as of my most recent post, I have taken the decision to cease the Vanguard.

After the soft reboot we attempted at the end of last year I had hoped that it would revitalise the sim after seven years.

Unfortunately it seems it did not take, and to be really honest, after seven years, even I have grown tired. The Vanguard was third sim I ran, and it survived a database collapse and about thirty crew members to be the longest running Mirror Universe sim ever created.

But I feel it is time for the Vanguard to go into Drydock.

Who knows, but maybe she might come back, but right now, I am the only person accessing the site, and there hasn't be a post this month.

I want to thank the entire crew, everyone who has every joined the ship. but its time for me to say Good bye.

Ross
The Captain.

Hey everyone.

Just a few reminders.

Unless you request LOA you need to log in at least once a week and contribute to any posts you have outstanding.

There are some of you that haven't logged in in a month and I haven't heard anything from you.

I know things have been slow at the moment and I apologise for that. the interrogation post went longer than I anticipated, but things should be moving again.

Hey gang

I just wanted to congratulate everyone for the awesome posts that are still being written, and the patience everyone has.

The Plot post is taking a little longer than I had expected to be finished between myself the XO and the new CMO, but it should be finished soon.

In the meantime, keep up the awesome work

» The Vanguards 5th Birthday

Posted on Fri Aug 5th, 2016 @ 8:33pm by Captain Talloc Hagen in Sim Announcement

Hello again Crew.

Today also marks the 5th Birthday of the ISS Vanguard. Back in 2011, The Vanguard first departed the Fleet Yards on Episode One: Supply Run.

Aside from myself, Kiara Harford and Alistair Flagg are the only original characters from that first episode still on the ship.

Today Also marks the two year anniversary for Captain Kid Sharpe, which means that Version 2 of the Vanguard is two years old.

Congratulations all round.

Because of personal reasons, mostly having to do with the amount of time I have available these days, and a lack of activity here, I have regretfully decided to resign from the ship.
I hope you are able to continue, and that you are able to recruit more people.
