[S.T.A.R] Starfleet Tactical Assault and Reconnaissance

Post by James Greenman » Thu Jul 16, 2015 11:40 pm


Starfleet Tactical Assault and Reconnaissance, or S.T.A.R, is an elite special forces group made up of select individuals hand-picked from the ranks of enlisted crewmembers, officers and certain civilians with specialised credentials, tasked with carrying out vital covert operations both within and outside of Federation space. They are given the finest equipment, the best training, every resource they require to complete some of the most difficult missions that Starfleet and the Federation requires of them.

The call has gone out to every ship in the fleet. In the wake of the Tzenkethi incursion into Federation space and the continued battles along the borders made up of rogue Tzenkethi forces, Station Sigma Rho still remains in their hands acting as a base of operations for the displaced paramilitary. While the Tzenkethi Autarch, recently returned to her rightful place at the head of her people, has condemned the actions of this splinter group retaining their hold on the Station it hasn't caused them to turn it back over to Starfleet hands and neither has the Autarch offered to assist. While the death of the Federation President from an attack by Tzenkethi and the destruction of the Flagship with all hands is being blamed on these rebel forces, there are those that suspect it might have been a subtle move to solidify the Autarch's power and appease her people in the wake of a disastrous war.

The new Federation President has given the approval, the Station must be retaken and the Tzenkethi removed from that area of space with extreme prejudice.


S.T.A.R. is the Star Trek: Engage elite forces team, running as a unique special event mission that will take place over the course of a single Arc, usually 6-8 weeks. This will give you the chance to play your characters in a different role, flesh them out and join the members of other ships across the entire game as you conduct special missions for the Federation council and Starfleet. The ranks will be the same but the positions are somewhat different to those that you'd have on a ship in some cases - remember that these are missions that require specialists, so now is the time to show us what your character can do.

Positions Available

CO - Commanding Officer, the leader of the S.T.A.R. team.
XO - Executive Officer, the second in command.
SIO - Strategic Intelligence Officer, tasked with planning entry and overall strategy while in the field.
LO - Logistics Officer, ensures that the team has everything they need to complete their mission, arranges transportation is required, takes on an advisory/scientific role during the mission.
ECS - Engineering Combat Specialist, tasked with keeping the equipment running, maintenance, and investigating/understanding unknown technology or developing their own.
TCS - Tactical Combat Specialist, an expert in combat, weapons and small squad tactics. Tasked with battlefield tactics while in the field.
MCS - Medical Combat Specialist, the team's doctor and sometimes scientist, giving battlefield aid as well as ensuring that the team is protected against possible environmental threats.
FCS - Flight Combat Specialist, tasked with piloting any vessels, providing air support if needed, hot drops and quick exits.

You're welcome to apply for any position regardless of where your character is currently, their presence can be explained away through time lapse or you're welcome to NPC on your usual ship while your 'main character' is otherwise engaged in S.T.A.R. operations. As long as you think your character has the relevant skills to fulfill that role, please go ahead and apply for it!

Remember that these missions are incredibly difficult, and while the accolades and rewards will be great, the dangers will be even greater. Each Arc will be fraught with peril, and only by working as a team will you make it out alive and with the objective completed. You'll be required to think on your toes and prepare accordingly for every threat.

So, what are you waiting for? Post your Character's application down below.

Character Name: Henry James Sumner
Current Rank: None (Previously Lieutenant)
Current Position: None (Previously Chief Tactical Officer)
Current Ship: None (Previously the USS Bremen)

Background: After a career filled with infractions, Sumner resigned from Starfleet, and was sentenced to service work for the Federation for pulling a weapon on a commanding officer. He took well to the task, mentoring and assisting less-fortunate children in Orion space as part of a Federation outreach program. Unofficially, he has also been running low-level surveillance for Starfleet Intelligence. Based on a recommendation from the deceased Kesh Suder, Starfleet Intelligence kept tabs on Sumner, who eventually agreed to monitor and report on the movements of certain persons. After hearing about the loss of the USS Bremen, then under the command of his sister, Sara, he contacted his SFI handlers and volunteered for 'any mission that allows him to hurt Tzenkethi.'

While there are concerns about his mental state, both after his checkered career and the recent loss of a family member, Sumner is a decorated combat officer with experience in non-standard combat scenarios. Of particular note is his successfully leading a small force against rogue Jem'Hadar on the Federation colony of New Juarez.

First Pick: Tactical Combat Specialist
Second Pick: Engineering Combat Specialist
