Welcome to the USS Wolff NCC-80140!

Luna Class Dev PatchIn the years following the end of the Dominion War, Starfleet began stepping down from a military footing and began to revert back to the Exploratory role that was it's mainstay for the better part of two centuries. Vast areas of space once inaccessible to the Federation came open and ships were sent out into the far reaches of space to explore.

Enter the Wolff. Designed originally as a long range explorer intended to operate for extended periods in the Gamma Quadrant, her class was shelved during the war in favor of more combat oriented designs. The end of the war brought a renewed urgency for explorer designs, and with an updated design, ships of her class began coming out of the shipyards in greater numbers.

We operate on the edge of known space, away from the relative safety of the Federation core worlds. The unknown confronts us every day as we fulfill Starfleet's Motto "To seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldy go where no one has gone before."

» A new year

Posted on Thu Feb 4th, 2021 @ 6:18am by Captain Taliserra Tigran in General News

Today is the start of our fourth year as a sim. When I first took over the Wolff I wasn't sure I'd make it this far, restarting a hiatus'd sim is never an easy thing to do but with the help of you my fellow writers we've done it, the Wolff has come back to life and I hope that it will remain so for years to come.

My personal merit for this year goes to Raymond, without his help both in character and out of character behind the scenes I don't think the sim would still be running.


The current mission is close to its endgame, the last few missions have been a little more combat orientated than sciency for our scientific explorer so the next one is going to be more sciencey and unusual, hopefully it will prove a most interesting mission.

Some bad news however. Real life catches up with everyone at some point and so Marilyn (Helena Wells) has informed me she's having to leave the sim and so we're in the process of writing her character out. She has been a great writer for the sim over the years so I wish her luck in her future endeavours and the door will always be open if life allows you to return.
2020 has been a hard year and 2021 is shaping up to be just as hard. I sincerely hope that everyone remains well and that we can all continue to write our story together.

Thank you for all your hard work these last years.

Jamie.


» Updates Complete

The website is back up! :-)

The core functionality is updated and running on the new server. I still have some tweaks and changes to the site which will be completed over the next while, but otherwise everything should be up and running for you all.


» Website Server upgrades

Posted on Wed Dec 30th, 2020 @ 6:38am by Captain M'Elise Emerson in Website Update

Morning,

Quick heads up for everyone on the USS Wolff that the webhost (myself) is going to be taking the site down for several hours tomorrow morning. I'm moving several domains over to a new server, and for the USS Wolff, updating the NOVA platform to the last 2.6.1 release.

The upgrade will take us from 2.3.2(custom) to 2.6.1 which we expect will improve overall site performance given the newer software version, as well as the newer server it will run on. The updated version has several minor improvements, and some larger improvements in email handling to keep my servers from getting spam blacklisted

As part of the move/upgrade, we will be moving from the USA to Canada. Privacy laws are a shade tighter in my home country as well as there will be some new legal verbiage on the site around GDPR. GDPR only applies to EU citizens but as most organizations like mine can't/don't identify geographic locations of users, we just assume everyone is in the EU and go from there. :-)

The plan is to start around 5-6am (US West Coast) during which the site will be down for a few hours. The actual move I expect will only take approx 1-2hrs but custom aspects of the Wolff site (wiki, custom skins, chat bubble) may take longer as we migrate those features.


» Somewhat belated awards

It has been a while since I posted one of these, mostly because it was the last thing on my mind with all that's going on. But here we are, the theta fleet awards we got the for the last coulple of months.

in june we did well enough in our task force to get a Bronze unit of distinction


For both the months of June and July, Raymond (Deepak) was awarded with player of the month.



And for a hat-trick, in August, Chris (Amelia Barron) was awarded with Player of the month.


I wonder if we'll get four months in a row, keep it up everyone.


Jamie.


» End of mission

Posted on Fri Jun 26th, 2020 @ 1:25am by Captain Taliserra Tigran in General News

With 'starbase sweet starbase' now posted I've called the mission as completed.

As you all know we're going to be having shoreleave at starbase 54 for a little while. while it's not mandatory I'd like to see at least something from all of you, I think all of our characters need to let off some steam after the events of the last few months. I'm going to extend the in character time we have there a little bit longer than is in the notes for the mission so everyone has a chance for some time.

After that our next mission 'to catch a thief' will start. Please ensure all currently saved posts are updated to be listed as part of that mission rather than the previous.


Now onto other business.

We could use some new blood on the sim, I'm going to be trying some recruiting in the next few weeks, any of you that know someone that might be interested in a sim drop some subtle hints towards us :P
If anyone's reading this news item who isn't on the sim, check us out and drop us a message if you're interested in joining.

And I'm happy to report we won another post of the month. the post 'weapon woes' by myself and Chris won the award.
