A couple sims have come forward asking for players. They are roughly in the same timeline as Challenger, and they both have positions for your current characters.

USS Sunfire, a Defiant-class:

As much as I hate to do this, especially since we just got a new crewmember, I have to say that I've hit a real block for the past couple months, and I feel like I can't go on anymore. I've been captaining this sim for almost two years now, and despite the best efforts of the remaining crew here, it has been very difficult for me. I never actually wanted to be a captain, and my character was never intended to be more than a middle-command-chain enforcer and troubleshooter. I and he have been out of our depths from the beginning of my administration, and the stress of the position has worn me down to the point where I simply can't write anything anymore. You might recall that the ship had a bit of a crisis when I took command of the ship, and I haven't been able to overcome the inertia of that event. I have spoken with Admiral Wakeland, and we agreed that the time has come to decommission the Challenger.

Now, I don't want anyone to be concerned. I have no intention of leaving you twisting in the wind. I'm going to start talking with some of the other captains to see if I can get every one of you positions on other vessels on the fleet, sims hopefully more active and more conducive to the growth of your characters than this place has been.

I do, however, want to thank Cmdr. Orkave and Lt. Harpe for sticking with this ship and trying their damnedest to make it work. I have no doubt that you will shine wherever you are transferred. As for Lt. Stiles, I'm sorry to metaphorically strangle your character in the crib, but I'm certain that if you had the chance, you would have proven as good as my old "war buddies."

You all should expect to be getting offers from other captains shortly, and if you would happen to have any preferences, let me know.

Thank you, and best of luck.

Capt. M'ress'Kaan
