USS Venture

Visit Site

The USS Venture (NCC-71854), one of Starfleet’s finest vessels, is also one of its most famous. Having served with great distinction during the Dominion War under the command of Admiral Hastur, the Venture has become a familiar face around the core worlds of the Federation, keeping the peace and serving as a guiding light for the Federation’s diplomatic corps. In recent years, her legend has continued to grow, her reputation following her on her voyage through the dangerous, unchartered Gavarian Corridor.

A symbol of strength and longevity, of power and status, the USS Venture serves in Bravo Fleet’s Task Force 93. Under the command of a eclectic band of explorers, Venture will patrol the volatile area of space along the border of two great empires, foster peace in the region and forge her way forward, into the ‘Undiscovered Country’.

The USS Venture is a Play by Nova simm set in the year 2388. Events taking place follow Star Trek, Bravo Fleet and Task Force canon and should be treated accordingly. Anyone wishing to join, should visit the LCARS Database and its Official Protocol section first.


Captain Makayla Perin
Commanding Officer

A young officer with a lot to prove, Makayla has recently been given command of the USS Venture. A career Starfleet Officer, Kayla began her service as an enlisted Engineer just before the breakout of the Dominion War. Despite seeing the horrors of the galaxy up close and personal at such a young age, Kayla committed herself to the Fleet not long after it ended. Since graduating from the Academy she's had a varied career not spending too long in any once place as she tried to experience as much of the fleet as she could get her hands on. However that all changed after joining the 4th fleet. Now her life has been turned around ever which way and she must adjust to all the new changes coming personally and professionally...all while trying to keep the RTC from tearing itself apart.

Commander Khalana t'Lehu
Executive Officer

Khalana is one of the few romulan officers in Starfleet. Having been born to two asylum seekers on the Federation Colony of Deneva, Khalana and her parents have been shunned by their family still within the Empire as traitors. With traditional tensions between the Romulan Empire and the Federation, the Federation citizens didn't give the t'Lehu's all good a time either. Of course Starfleet Intelligence had to get involved too. All this, however only served to push Khalana on to excell, which she had. Her current assignment is as Executive Officer on the USS Venture.

Lieutenant Commander Sinara
Chief Strategic Operations Officer

Despite how she came upon the Federation Sinara had very few obstacles in her path in adapting to the life she had discovered. With no memory of whom she was or even of her age she relied heavily on muscle memory which became apparent during her early days within Starfleet Academy, excelling at anything physical and tactical as well as general problem solving. She posses a critical mind...sometimes overly critical yet serves her well in the realm of Security. She is extremely dedicated when on duty and to the point, not one to hold punches when she has an opinion. Off duty she is however a lighter soul, caring and in some circumstances instinctively a mother hen...also somewhat "Kooky" with a wide variety of odd mannerisms and often seemingly easily excitable.

Lieutenant Commander Linshara Thannis
Chief Intelligence Officer

Linshara is not as open or approachable as most Betazoids. Due to the nature of her work, she tends to be focused, controlled and very calculated, having to watch her words, her tone, her mannerisms, she often finds it difficult to relax and just be a Betazoid woman in her prime. While she is good company once one gets past the exterior, Linshara is not one for pointless, silly small talk. preferring instead deeper, meaningful conversations and directness, openness. She also prefers the same in people, not being overly fond of people who talk too much or with little meaning.
A good, pragmatic leader, Linshara stands behind her team and is not afraid to bear the burden of responsibility.

Ensign Shris Keval
Security Officer

Shris isn't the strict disciplinarian that some might think of for the tactical department and an Andorian, though he does take his work seriously, personal matters are far more friendly.

The switch between the two can be somewhat odd and shocking, but it's something he picked up from his family, when something needs doing you do it, then you can have all the fun you want.

A firm believer in what the Federation Stands for, he doesn't agree with all the positions and orders it gives, but that is one of the core tenants of the whole institution, being able to disagree and discuss, not that he wont follow them.

His attitude to the unaligned and the enemies of the Federation is cautious and pragmatic. A side he values but often lends him to conflict with those of a more idealistic nature

She drinks Lapsang Souchong on a regular basis and has been known to leave endless numbers of empty mugs around her office.

Lieutenant Commander Neydani Velia
Assistant Chief Science Officer

Like all Bajoran’s Velia is a very passionate, outspoken, hardheaded and has an intensity about her that comes from her time in the resistance. A person with an opinion on everything from the best hoverball team to Federation Policy she has never really been afraid to voice them. Her instincts are to root for the underdog and she won’t hesitate to go for the long shot. Velia enjoys the sciences, especially the opportunity to test theory with a good experiment and to apply the results to practical use. She is comfortable around Starfleet Officers and will generally portray a more sarcastic and playful attitude aboard ship.

Lieutenant Commander Yidam Sulani
Chief Counselor

As the daughter of a religious family on Bajor, Yidam Sulani had been taught to seek balance in life and an inner peace in the teachings of the Prophets. Having served at Starfleet Medical, on space stations and starships, she has developed a flexibility in her approaches to patients. The most distinctive aspect of her practice is the use of companion animals (real and holographic) with patients. Her current assistant is "Bix", an Earth canine. She is also specially certified to practice Tribble Therapy and has two tribbles aboard Venture. As Venture's Head Counselor, Lani is approachable and open, a great listener and a sympathetic soul.
