USS Shanghai

Visit Site

Exploration is the driving force of Starfleet, the core and ever-present principle born into every Starfleet Officer. To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before – that is what we are driven to do.

The USS Shanghai-A was chosen to lead a group of explorers beyond deep space and to a new, unexplored section of the galaxy far rim-ward from Federation lines and the Reayan Transit Corridor. With fresh retrofits and a new crew she set out on a mission of exploration with little more than a small cadre of ships in tow. Deep in the Auriga Perseus section of the galaxy, the Shanghai watched over the early stages of the colony efforts. While exploring this new world something happened, though – a local power known as the Protectorate, a union of numerous species from the region with a reckless use of technologies such as chroniton weaponry and nanotech, set upon the Federation explorers with no obvious provocation. The ensuing battle was quick, but it had lasting implications and would end with stranding the explorers. Now, with only a trickle of reinforcements from the Fleet, Shanghai and her crew has a clear path laid out before it: protect the fledgling Golovin Colony, explore the region, repair the damage dealt to the region, and try to find common ground with the peoples they find there.

The USS Shanghai is an exploration focused sim, set just beyond the known galaxy. The sim hopes to foster an environment where players can help build our little section of the world, from helping design alien worlds and phenomena, to the civilizations and technologies they’ve discovered, and the exploration of characters within that setting. The Shanghai was founded in 2009 and has a dedicated crew with a long history. We are always looking for new members, so if you find yourself interested in the simm, send us a message or application!

Captain Sun Mei Xiang
Commanding Officer

Sun Mei Xiang is a historian, a martial artist, a former marine, a fighter pilot, and proudly serves as the Commanding Officer of the USS Shanghai-A. Starting her career as a Marine Fighter Pilot, she is not a traditional Starfleet Captain - and had to learn command in a much more round about way than many officers. This gave her a unique, if often less than polished, command style.

Lieutenant Christine Descharmes
Chief Counselor

A self-proclaimed free spirit, Christine is a charismatic, outgoing and compassionate woman who often acts and speaks before thinking. She took a non-stereotypical way into her career as a psychologist when she was posted to the USS Shanghai-A shortly after beginning the program at the University of Andoria. As a result, received most of her training as she went along and rarely does things by the book.

Missions

Points of Light
started October 15, 2018

The Shanghai have returned from Cyen, and are being checked and scrubbed for any lingering effects or nano-tech, giving the crews a much needed respite. Life on Golovin has begun to look more normal, and the crew can spend some time on their new world. When strange lights begin to appear on the outskirts of the colonies, science teams are puzzled. There aren't any clear readings, but the orbs seem to be nothing more than lights at first. It soon becomes clear that there is something more to them

5618
started July 14, 2018 and ended November 1, 2018

First Contact with the Protectorate was disastrous, but a second chance is made possible as Seppala receives an invitation. Upon arrival, things quickly take a turn for the worst - a crew member and an old face are taken as political hostages, and latent Borg nanites in Protectorate technology begins to cause a virus to spread like wildfire through the planet's population. Can the Shanghai aid the planet in time, or are they facing a possible planetary assimilation event?

Of Persephone
started March 1, 2018 and ended July 14, 2018

Shanghai and the Initiative return to the Golovin System after their disastrous first contact with the Protectorate. Forced to wait a few months for reinforcements, all the crew is set on repairs and helping build up the colony and station. After a small craft disappears, a discovery under the colony leads to questions about the nature of the planet they've come to know as home. Unexpected guests arrive suspiciously soon after, raising questions about the security and future of the colony.
