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 Themis 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.


Lieutenant Commander Aalux Lakar
Commanding Officer

Having seen and experienced much in his first century of life, Aalux has lived the chaotic life of a Federation diplomat, joined Starfleet in time to be a soldier in the Dominion War even if that was never his intention, and worked to support Federation colonies damaged by recent conflicts. Finally, he's earned his chance to pursue his lifelong urge to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, and to hear their stories.

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.

Ensign T'Niam
Science Team Lead - Counselor

Something of an oddball by Vulcan standards, T'Niam is currently an Ensign with Starfleet and serving as the Science Team Lead Counselor aboard the USS Palatine.

Civilian Rodan Marus
Science Team Lead - Theoretical Propulsion

Rodan's spent most of his life researching FTL propulsion, most recently working with Quantum Slipstream technology at the Daystrom Institute. His latest assignment, the chance to test some of his theories and designs out on one the newest ships, he jumped at the opportunity when it was presented to him. 5 years was nothing, it didn't matter where he was so long as he could continue his work. Who knows it might even be interesting to look out a window and see something entirely new from time to time.
