Welcome to the USS Liberty!

Welcome to the USS Liberty, the Star Trek sim that has pushed creative boundaries since its first post all the way back on August 1, 2001 as Independence Fleet's original expansion role play.

The USS Liberty has been requisitioned into the Sentinel One Fleet of Starfleet Intelligence. Her missions are many and varied, not always 'by the book'.

Since the end of the Dominion War, there's been rumour after rumour that the Dominion are re-arming and re-building, gaining new allies to once again mount an assault of the Federation. The Liberty's duties are to investigate these and take whatever appropriate action is required.

The ship isn't Rogue, the officers and crew do have their orders, but they've been given a certain amount of latitude to ensure the mission is completed.

Join us in the fight to ensure the future of the Federation is ours, and not under the heel of the Dominion...

» The Liberty Is Under Way

Posted on Thu Mar 3rd, 2022 @ 7:49pm by Captain Sandy "Ghost" Shannon in Sim Announcement

Finally the USS Liberty has gotten under way. Her mission to find, arrest if possible, destroy their base of operations when found.

It was on DS9 just one day before the conference with the Cardassian Government representatives when the incident took place. A bomb went off killing Admiral Hastings. This is the fourth bombing here on the station by this group. How they get past security, they could not answer, but the Liberty is the only ship available and equiped to take on the job. The bombings must be stopped!

» Sim/Ship Swap with USS Sunfire

Posted on Wed May 26th, 2021 @ 1:51am by Admiral Charles Star in General News

Gallant Liberty Crew:

As your CO has already informed you, you all will be embarking on a historic journey next month: the sim/ship swap with the USS Sunfire. Here's how it'll work:

-Before June 1st: Re-create your Liberty character on the Sunfire
-June 1st: Captain Rhenora Kaylen & Captain Sandy "Ghost" Shannon will send a joint post on both ships starting the missions for the ship swap in story
-June 1st: Captain Rhenora Kaylen officially becomes CO/host of the Sunfire, and Captain Sandy "Ghost" Shannon officially becomes CO/host of the Liberty
-The similar, but separate missions will run concurrently on each ship; you're free to participate in both!
-Before July 1st: Each CO will end their respective mission, and your characters will be deactivated on the Liberty; you will continue on the Sunfire

One thing's for certain... it's sure to be wild! We've never done anything like this, and we likely never will again, but you get to be a part of it now! Be bold with it, push the boundaries, and most importantly, have fun! Again, if you haven't already, please go ahead and recreate your Liberty character on the Sunfire--just don't post until June 1st. Until then...

Hi Team,
as the end of the month rapidly approaches and our time on the mighty Liberty draws to a close, we need to get a few things in order for everything to go smoothly.

- the Sunfire crew will start transferring over to the Liberty. If the position is open they will apply there, if not they'll apply as a 'Guest' with their current rank.

- we need to join the USS Sunfire, https://sunfire.idfleet.com/index.php/main/index
please apply under Civilian Services - Guest, and I'll assign your current rank. Copy and paste your bio over or if you wish to write a new one - go for it. If you wish to create a new character - now's the time.

At the start of next month we'll be running a combined joint mission - I'll explain how it will work closer to the time.

Any questions - as always - hollar :)
