USS TOMCAT NCC 62114 - AKIRA CLASS SUBTYPE LIGHT SUPPORT MARINE/FIGHTER CARRIER

INTRODUCTION

THE USS TOMCAT RPG SIMULATION IS NOVA BASED  NOW; WE ARE A NORMAL PACED SIMULATION AS WE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THOSE WHO WISH TO SIM IN THE TREK WORLD, BUT ARE OTHERWISE TOO BUSY IN THE REAL WORLD. AS LONG AS A POST IS MADE AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK (If tagged) THEN ALL IS WELL IN THE WORLD. LIKE MOST OTHER SIMULATIONS I AS THE SIMULATION COMMANDER EXPECT MY CREW TO BE CREATIVE, "BUT" YOU MUST REMAIN WITHIN STAR TREK BELIEVABILITY. THE USS TOMCAT HAS A HEAVY MARINE CONTINGENT BOTH TROOPS AND FIGHTERS, BUT NO HEAVY WEAPONS, WE ALSO HAVE A KLINGON FIGHTER SQUADRON. ALL OUR THREE SQUADRONS ARE VALKYRIE CLASS FIGHTERS AND WE HAVE A MISSION SPECIFIC SCOUT SHIP VENTURE CLASS, THE ONLY SHIP IN THE FEDERATION CURRENTLY WITH A CLOCKING DEVICE SUPPLIED BY THE KLINGONS, IT'S PRESENCE ON THE TOMCAT IS TOP SECRET BUT IT IS NOT USED NEAR THE ROMULAN/FEDERATION NEUTRAL ZONE. IF THE VENTURE CLASS HAS TO BE USED CLOSE TO THE ROMULAN BORDER THE CLOAKING DEVICE IS REMOVED, UNLESS UNDER A DIRECT DIRECTIVE FROM SFI.

ABOUT THE TOMCAT AND IT'S ADVENTURES.......

The year 2389-2390 was tough on the crew of the USS Tomcat as their second mission after their shakedown cruise was in the Hydaransz System, this system was on the Federation border to both Romulan and Klingon space and was inhabited by Pirates, most were drone like and controlled by a greater conciouness. One ship while well armed could barely hold its own, the outer planets were taken but at great cost in lives and materiel, eventually a Cardassian built Starbase was discovered in the systems Asteroid field and after much bloodshed it was taken and renamed Starbase Omega and a Federation Administration was installed, it in time became the supply base for the Hydaransz system and the USS Tomcat. The Tomcat made it to the inner asteroid field and all they could scan of the inner planets was massive amount of life on the inner planets. As they were too far away nothing more could be done, now with the outer system friendly territory a defence perimeter was erected to protect the ore rich outer planets. Now the Tomcat returned to Starbase 39 Sierra near Bolius for repairs and restocking and crew replenishment, while still in dock a Section 31 operative was uncovered and when the information was drained from him the Tomcats Marine officer Major Donovan being half human and a very strong telepath shredded his mind as she had a severe distaste of Section 31 and their activities. As he could not be announced the shell of the operative now child-like was placed  in an asylum and quickly forgotten about.

As Section 31 was a clandestined organisation no official charges could be brought on Major Donovan, else  Section 31s security would be comprimised, so they took another direction and ruined her chances of ever making it past Lieutenant Colonel, they tried to get her off the Tomcat, but the ships Commander had some intel on them that allowed the Major to remain, Commander Jasmine  Lynne Somers was not someone to cross, not only did she have influence in the Federation, she was also an Ex-Marine and was rumoured to be somewhat more violent than her cousin Marine Captain Alexandria Somers and Major Donovan, so  a seething Section 31 left the Tomcat alone, eventually Starfleet gave Commander Somers another mission to the Mira Sector.....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The year is 2391 and currently the  USS Tomcat is on a mission to the Mira Sector of Federation space and at the system Galen IV, which has now multiple species on it. While not officially part of the Federation the Talarian's being the closest to the Galen system agreed to supply an Administrator and infrastructure relating to this. Over time Federation, Kilingon and Cardassian's took up residence on the planet and then Romulan's and Remans when the Hobus event happened, a few short years later the old model ships assigned to Galen IV began to feel the strain of Orion slaver attacks. Most Orion Slavers were content to stay away from Galen IV and deal with species not yet known to the various powers; but those that wanted richer pickings and  began taking citizens from Galen IV, as the larger powers began to lose too many citizens a co effort by Starfleet/Klingon/Romulan Republic and Cardassian Union built a Starbase close to Galen IV out in the Mira Sector, currently it was SFI controlled and not known to all in Starfleet, but it gave the Empires a place to launch their ships from in support of Galen IV.

Still all this precaution did not halt the Orion Slavers, it only slowed them down, and over time the abductions got so bad and on the heels of this Pirate attacks, mostly Orion's began pillaging the supply ships going to and from Galen IV. A defence perimeter stopped the Pirates from entering the Mira sector, but outside that cordon ships were easy pickings. In response to this the proud Talarian Government put out a call to Starfleet, who despite streched resources agreed and tasked an Akira class ship to the area, but this would take sometime as the ship was still being repaired and its departure date was behind schedule, but in time the USS Tomcat left Starbase 39 Sierra and  journeyed to the Mira Sector and to Galen IV.

It's first task was to hold a meeting with the local administration and the various other Empire ship commanders already there, halfway into the mission the meeting was inturrupted by Orion shock troops, this resulted in the death of the head administrator and the recalling of all ships commanders as a sudden attack took them all by surprise. Before the Tomcat could carry this out they came to the aid of a freighter convoy headed to Galen IV, the attacker was an Orion female Captain, who pulled the underwear of the Tomcat crew up over their heads and tied them in knots as she launched  cloaked temporal disorientation style explosives, these did not cause serious damage but did delay the Tomcat long enough for the ship to escape. After this set back the Tomcat finally made it to Galen IV and this is where it's new mission began.
