IKS VaQbach

Qapla' batlh jeh!

Welcome to the IKS VaQbach!

PLEASE NOTE: I am still working on the site. It is brand new!!

The IKS VaQ’Bach is a Negh’Var class ship, with its mandate to serve as a flagship for the alliance between the Klingon Empire and the Federation. Starfleet and KDF serve side by side on this vessel, with Starfleet making up about 25% of the crew.

During a long term mission in the Beta Quadrant, they were suddenly attacked by unknown vessels. The VaQ’bach took damage but was slowly gaining the upper hand. Suddenly a bubble of some kind formed around the entire ship and they ended up even more damaged, with more than half the personal having lost their lives, and with no idea where they were, in an unknown region of space. Only later will they find out that they were in the Nekrit Expanse in the Delta Quadrant.

Alongside Klingon and Federation races, new friends join the crew as they meet friendly and hostile races.

Here with no intention of going home, the IKS VaQ’bach must not only survive, but thrive in this unknown and uncharted region of space.

Hi all

I am happy to announce that we have a new Chief Medical Officer, Lt Comdr Greg Helms, and a Chief Engineer, Sogh Kovlor Son of K’TraQ.

Welcome on board and I hope you will have a great simming adventure with us. We love writing and we love our stories, and I am looking forward to your contributions to make this sim awesome.

For those who of you who have contacts: we need a Klingon (KDF) Sec chief and perhaps a SF chief as well. We also still need an Intelligence chief (KDF) and or SF, and a pilot. It seems like Covid19 and RL took a toll on some of our crew members.

Stay safe!

» Belayed welcome to our new counselor/CMO and direction update

Posted on Wednesday November 11th, 2020 @ 1:08pm by HoD Kretorg son of Murgh in General News

Dear all

Eish... We have had so much fun writing with Salvi, it feels like she had been part of this crew for a while. In any case.... (red faced embarrassment) I failed to welcome her officially to the crew. What was a cameo, is now developing into something far more.

So with all the appropriate pomp and stuff, WELCOME Salvi. If what we have done so far is any indication, we are going to have a lot of fun writing interesting stories with you.

Some idea about our current mission:

Alex, Partha and Koth took a shuttle to Etan for Alex to negotiate for use of the their shipyard to get the damaged VaQ'bach up and going. It is still pretty much a sitting duck. The Etanians (under pressure from the baddie Kazon sect) said "no" to dear Alex for use of their shipyard. In the mean time Partha and Koth met Salvi, a human servant on Etan. Her planet was bombarded by the Etanian "asteroids' and she ended up on Etan. (Long story). She and Koth will now go to a mine to free her family and bring them to the VaQ'bach.

In the mean time (as well), the Shelka, with Anslo and X'ae, is looking to draw out Paxim our bad other baddie with his Kazon friends and lure them to where the VaQbach is hiding, to give them a hiding. Pun intended. Obviously at this point we don't know that Paxim is dealing with the same Kazon that is controlling Etan and a few other planets in the vicinity.

So, that is more or less it.

We still need some more people. Our XO is still on ELOA but Anslo PNPC Partha with his permission. We need a Chief engineer, operations officer, a Science officer and an intelligence officer (would be great if a DQ race person could work with Tavana), some security people, maybe Yeomans, and so on.

» New mission: Staking a claim

Posted on Thursday October 1st, 2020 @ 12:36pm by HoD Kretorg son of Murgh in General News

Dear crew

We have completed our first mission and we are nearly at the end of the second mission, from Lost to lost. Now it is time for the third mission, namely: Staking a claim.

Once the mission briefing post is done, we will start the new mission.

In this mission we will engage Paxim, negotiate with the Ethains for supplies, and ... well I haven't thought further.

We need a CMO, KDF Intel Chief, a Chief navigator/Chief helmsman, Ops chief, engineer and a very brave counselor.

If you know of anyone that might be interested, please send them our way.

Posted on Friday September 25th, 2020 @ 1:33pm by HoD Kretorg son of Murgh in General News

Hi all

I am so happy that, though we were slow for a few months due to Covid19 strain on us, we are now active and building towards our next mission with 13 mission posts in the making.

Sadly it seems we have lost two players during this time and unfortunately I don't know the reason, namely Komar (CMO) and Khagar (Klingon Intel Chief). I made them NPC's for now, so we will see how it goes.

Mission wise, the VaQ'bach is obviously still dead in space, and are preparing for combatting the pirate. The arrival of Alex Davenport our Ambassador and Kre's daughter Tavana (Starfleet Chief intel chief)had been kept secret as a surprise. Yeah right. Alex and Kre have a clearing throat history in case anyone wondered. They did not part on the best terms, so it is going to be interesting.

Thank you dear crew for being patient with my internet issues as well which is sorted now and just being the amazing bunch of people you are, writing life like characters.

Q'apla all

Yours sincerely - (nice huh?)
