Welcome to the USS Arcadia NCC-89015!

The USS Arcadia is an award-winning RPG simulation, a proud member of Task Force 47 in the Obsidian Fleet. Here at the Arcadia we don’t just write; we tell stories. As such, we value character development and interaction just as much as we do story progression. Our players are encouraged to develop their own side plots that would shed more light on the history, inner thoughts, and personal growth of their characters. And we do everything we can to help you integrate your own stories into the main story line.

Our current mission is Episode 4 "Truth, Justice, and the Federation Way." If you prefer reading the episode's posts in the order in which they are meant to be read, please check out the suggested reading order in our Mission Library under Starfleet Database.

Also check out the other parts of the site. If you like want you see, come and join our adventure! If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to get in touch with us!

Obsidian Fleet, Task Force 47 "The Avengers"



Current Mission




Truth vs Lies. Justice vs Vengeance. Federation vs . . . Federation?

The Arcadia rescues the USS Themyscira and her crew, refugees from a dystopian future, where the once proud Federation had succumbed to fourteen years of devastating war. Captain Nami Ishikawa, commanding officer of the Themyscira and a woman whose past is inseparably intertwined with Oliver's future, details the dark days that are to befall the Federation, but there is something even darker that she hides. Will the crew of the Arcadia find out her true mission before it is too late?

Just want to let everyone know that I came back from LOA last night, but since it was really late at night, I didn't do any writing. I'll get back to all the JPs later today. Thank you for your patience.

Please join me and give a warm welcome to Karl, the newest member of our crew! Karl will write the Arcadia's very first Klingon character, Lieutenant K'vagh, Son of Ma'vok, our new chief tactical officer. Let's open that crate of bloodwine I have been saving for just the occasion!! =D

Just realized that I forgot to mention this in my last news item. So, our very own science chief has just opened a fleet neutral Discord channel for various Star Trek sims: https://discord.gg/fFpcyng. Go check it out when you have a chance! =)

» New Year and Roll Call

Posted on Wed Jan 3rd, 2018 @ 3:46am by Captain Oliver Lee PhD in General News

A belated happy new year, everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season. =)

I must take full responsibility and apologize for the slow story progression last year. While I'm still dealing with lingering health issues, I hope to and will certainly do my best to set a better example and pick up my writing pace in the new year. I'll also try to get on Discord more often so that we can put it to better use.

Meanwhile, since I haven't heard back from some of the crew for some time, I would also like to take an official roll call. Please respond to one of the JPs, post a single post, or just PM me so that I know you are still active. If I don't hear back from you by the end of the day Sunday 1/14 (Eastern Time), I'm afraid I'll have to open up your position for recruitment. Of course, RL always takes precedent, so if you need to take an LOA, just let me know.

I hope to hear from everyone soon!

» Holidays, New Crew, and Minor Website Updates

Posted on Thu Dec 28th, 2017 @ 1:23am by Captain Oliver Lee PhD in General News

A very belated Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season with your family and loved ones. I'm also thrilled to welcome aboard the Arcadia the newest addition to our crew, chief engineer Lieutenant Alkan Malaya PhD played by Shana. Please give her your warmest welcome!

I have also just updated the header image you see at the top of every page on our site with a slightly modified logo. It's from a screen shot I took in Star Trek Online with my Yorktown class cruiser, which I named the Arcadia with our registry number (I'm using the Odyssey skin since the Elysium class is essentially the Odyssey with different specs on paper). If you maximize the browser screen, you will find the words "U.S.S Arcadia NCC-89015" emblazoned towards the end of the nacelles, on the inside and right below the phaser strips (I have been wanting to do a customized header for the site since forever! =D)

I thought about using a screen shot of the front top of the saucer where the ship's name and registry are more conspicuously displayed, but the Odyssey model just didn't look great from that angle. I will experiment more when I have the time, but for now I would like to focus on the writing and keep the story moving forward, which I fully intend to do after the New Year. I also slightly updated the mission title graphics for Episode 4 and added a customized MSD graphic for the ship's specs page. So yay! =)
