USS Palatine

Visit Site

A new Vesta-Class Starship is about to launch from the shipyards on a five-year mission of exploration. As part of TF93’s┬áBastet Group, our mission will take us into the depths of the Typhon Expanse, a dangerous and mostly unknown region of space that is waiting to be uncovered. With the Cardassians and Romulans exerting their influence in this region, the USS Palatine will be representing the best ideals of both Starfleet and the Federation while pushing back the boundaries of known space.

The Palatine is a game built around the concept that each and every player has more to offer than just the character they write, that together we can contribute to a level of world-building and storytelling that allows the whole crew to have the fun of creating entire new races, technologies, deep space phenomena, and missions to share. With a heavy focus on the sciences and moral dilemmas, and more than a little TNG flair updated for the late 24 Century, our crew is looking to fill key positions before setting out on our bold mission.


Commander Merzia Jalel

Lieutenant Benjamin Ingram
Executive Officer

Classic Academic would be the logical moniker: of average height, bland in appearance, and a little round about the midsection. He looks like a kindly librarian.
This, my friends, is a trap.
He is a scientist first and foremost, forgoing friends, meaningful relationships, all to gain more prestige or a higher rank...he will get that captains pip one day. By hook, or by crook.

Lieutenant Meilin Jiang
Chief Security/Tactical Offer

Meilin was born to unknown parentage in Hong Kong. She was raised by a Taoist enclave, to which she remains affiliated to this day. Though her easygoing nature sees few highs or lows, she is seldom seen to be taciturn or withdrawn. Her quiet strength is the bedrock of her temperament. Meilin is an eternal student and spends all of her time either in pursuit of study or in reflective meditation in what she has learned. She voluntarily maintains a section of the arboretum as part of her meditation regimen.

Lieutenant Mara Ricci
Chief Engineering Officer

Mara is cold and bitter on the surface, but if anyone takes the time to get to know her, they will find her to be friendly- if a bit stand-offish- and fiercely loyal. She can come off as snobbish, but really, she just extremely introverted. She has no time for prejudices or people who hold them. Conversely, though, she is irritated by people who actually live up to their stereotypes. (Ex. Cardassian jerks, violent Klingons, money hungry Ferengi, etc.) She likes people to break their molds and do something unexpected.
