Welcome to the USS Ganymede!

Welcome to the USS Ganymede!

The Ganymede is a Luna class starship, launched in 2382, 7 years after the end of the Dominion War. After returning to a peacetime footing, the Federation has committed to returning Starfleet to its roots - exploration.

With a newly demilitarized Cardassia, the way is now open for Starfleet to continue exploration into the far half of the Alpha Quadrant, as well as the border of the Gamma Quadrant. The Ganymede, equipped with a Mark I Slipstream Drive, is tasked with seeking out new life and civilizations, and boldy going where no one has gone before.

Ship Canon

The USS Ganymede exists after "Star Trek: Nemesis", and does not include media created afterwards. There are limited references from soft canon sources, such as "Star Trek: New Frontier" and "Star Trek: Titan" novel series. We also bring in a few things from the "Star Trek Online" universe. Bringing in references from other media will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the game master.

Posted on Sat Jan 23rd, 2021 @ 12:59am by Captain Dyllon McMahon in Website Update

I've uploaded the Neptune skin and modified it for our uses. For those already with an account, you will need to go to your appearance settings, and select "Neptune." Neptune has a bit of a more modern view, and most importantly for those who stare at screens all day, it's easy on the eyes (it's dark). It also is more reactive (mobile-friendly).

Everyone, please join me in welcoming Lt(jg) Christopher Scartelli as our new chief helm officer, as well as Dr Termas Tarnak as our new chief medical officer! I'm sure they will be fine additions to the crew.

Feel free to write yourselves in as having come on board at DS9 before we left.

We are in search of a new XO! The previous XO had to retire due to real life obligations, and I'm a bit picky about choosing my XO. So, here's a link to the application!


» Storyboarding the Launch

Posted on Mon May 11th, 2020 @ 1:52pm by Captain Dyllon McMahon in Out of Character

So, we're in a bit of a pickle. Half the crew are sitting at DS9, and the other half at Utopia Planitia. We need to launch the ship, go through our warp test, and our slipstream test, before we arrive at DS9 to pick up the rest of the crew.

Because of this, unless anyone objects, I'm going to write a long post tonight or tomorrow that will storyboard what is going to transpire between now and our arrival at DS9.

Posted on Thu Mar 19th, 2020 @ 2:43pm by Captain Dyllon McMahon in Out of Character

Hello, everyone! We've got a lot of new faces around here, so I wanted to make sure we're on the same page.

Right now, I have JUST accepted Command of the Ganymede, but have not yet arrived on ship.

The Ganymede is currently at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, in orbit around Mars. She has just been built, and is making final preparations.

Two of our crew members are at Deep Space Nine. They are non-essential for cast off, so we're going to pick them up on the way. This may have caused some confusion, but to reiterate, the Ganymede is NOT at Deep Space Nine.
