Welcome to the Cold Station Theta!

Some things you can only learn in a storm...

A sentinel at the edge of Federation space, Cold Station Theta sits poised to become a strategic and diplomatic powerhouse. From humble beginnings as a refueling station prior to the Dominion War, the station’s location has put it at the convergence of diplomatic and strenuous relations with the Stenellian Ascendancy, an advanced and powerful interstellar player. The actions of her crew are closely watched by both the Federation and the Ascendancy. To make matters worse, there is a third player in the game. The Romulan Star Empire has taken an interest in allying with the Stenellis and nearly succeeded in turning them fully against the Federation.

As diplomats work to maintain the peace, new frontiers of science and exploration have opened. The Ul-Kamari Expanse, a vast and volatile nebula, beckons initial study. New cultures and new civilizations are discovered with increasing regularity and new threats loom on the horizon. Cold Station Theta has been fully redesigned and rebuilt becoming the first Salyut Class Space Station. She offers state of the art science and medical facilities, an extensive arboretum and botanical garden, comfortable living spaces for crew, an extensive promenade for socioeconomic interaction, multiple diplomatic suites and meeting facilities, and powerful defensive systems. With over twelve hundred and fifty decks, this facility rivals Earth Space Dock in size and population interchange.

Serving as the home of Beta Quadrant Headquarters, Cheydinhall Sector Command, and the Cheydinhall Expeditionary Fleet this station is never short on action or political intrigue. The command staff, Evan Merlin and James Stacker, would like to welcome you to the future. Select join and apply today for the duty assignment of a lifetime.

Posted on Tue Aug 20th, 2019 @ 5:07pm by Lieutenant Commander James Stacker in Sim Announcement

Good afternoon all,

The command team is conducting a roll call to determine who would like to continue participation moving forward. The sim has been quiet for several months: we are looking to change that. Please contact the command team via PM here, or via the Discord server, if you get this message and are interested in remaining a part of the sim. Anyone who does not reply will be purged from the roster, but will be welcome to return if they should decide to do so in the future.

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

Well, you've seen the news... Bandit has stepped back for now, leaving the sim to Cmdr. Stacker and myself. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision she made. So, first of all, I would like to thank her, on behalf of all of us, for all the work she has done for Cold Station Theta. It's a great sim and Bandit is a great simmer, and the fact that she needs to step back is a loss for all of us. Fortunately, she's not completely gone, so I fully expect her to keep us on our toes!

The best thing we can do now, therefore, is to keep the sim going forward. To that end, we'll soon start a new plot to get people back to simming. If you have any ideas or any plots you'd like to see in the future, be sure to let us know! Your input is always welcome. Until then, feel free to let your characters explore the station, drink a raktajino in the Heart of Targ of have a bite in another bar, explore the arboretum and the Promenade and have fun.

You can find Stacker, aka Baxter, and me on the UCIP Discord server, in the CSTheta channel. If you want to write a log but don't know what to write about, or if you want to invite someone for a joint log, you can ask around there. Or just hang out with us.

That's it for now. Happy simming!

Evan 'Weirdo' Merlin,
aka Sha'mer

Hi folks,

Due to time constraints in real life with my soon to be one year old and a rather large ranch to keep afloat after such a harsh winter, I am going on a bit of a hiatus. Sha'mer and Baxter will be taking up the 'hot seat' while Blyx remains in charge of Beta Fleet. So... While Blyx is still the shark in the pool, you'll want to be on your best behavior for... well... Weirdo and Stacker.

Good luck!

Good evening my darlings!

Unfortunately Neil has been unable to be reached as we've continued to grow and evolve. One name, however, has stood out in the fold as being consistently there as a player and someone willing to carry more than just their own weight. That person is Sha'mer. While her toon may be a little on the unorthadox side, we truly love 'Weirdo' more than we could ever admit.

That said, Sha'mer is joining the command team with Evan 'Weirdo' Merlin standing as "Acting" XO.

Some of you may know Sha'mer and know that her own history within UCIP is rife with command experience up to fleet level. We're deeply honored to have someone with so much knowledge, and desire to play, here within our ranks.

So... There you have it, folks! The future of CST as a whole!
