Welcome to the USS Chimera!
Adjust. Adapt. Overcome
The year is 2394, peace echoes throughout the Federation leading to another era of exploration and discovery. The only threats are the usual ones, with the usual opponents, as well as the scourge of occasional pirate activity. The borders of the Federation in all of the Quadrants is being expanded in the name of curiosity.
USS Chimera, NCC 80118, reclaimed from the ruins of the former USS Aegir, repaired and put into mothballs as a new ship, has just been recommissioned and placed under the command of Commander Calypso Skyie, a former Marine-turned-Starfleet officer. Last in line for a refit; Last in line for crew; Last in line for 'interesting' duty assignments.
Placed as out of the way as possible, the closest starbase is Starbase 634, USS Chimera is a Luna-class starship on the edge of beyond. Out of sight, out of mind. Responding to routine signals, investigating anomalies, everything that other Captains don't want to deal with. So what could go wrong?
Murphy has something to say about that.
USS Chimera is a proud member of Pegasus Fleet's Task Force 56

Welcome to the second week of September (and the one month anniversary of our launch!) fellow Chimerans! As I'm sure you've all seen the Pegasus Fleet Monthly Report for August already, but juuuust in case you didn't, I wanted to point out to you all that despite being active for just under three weeks, we got out 51 character posts and earned our first Gold Sim Of The Month award!
Many congratulations to all of you, without whom we wouldn't be who we are nor wouldn't have won this award! Let's keep it up and go try to win another!

Hi, I'm Calypso Calliope Skyie, my call sign was Calamity, but everyone calls me Cally once they get to know me. Yes, I was a fighter pilot, yes, I was an assault shuttle pilot and well... I was a Marine.
But that's not important right now. I'm sure you're wondering: How did you get here, in command of the Chimera? Well, that's a long story and you'll get it in time. Trust me.
To make that particular long story short, I went to the Fleet after I couldn't fly fighters anymore, learned to fly starships and worked my way up to this, picking up my beagle Artemis along the way. Of course, the ship they gave me is a wonderful Luna-class, but they gave me one that someone else broke and then put back together and stuffed into mothballs.
So what we've got now is a ship that isn't in great shape, not that much in the way of supplies and the Starfleet Office of Personnel promises me that we're getting most of our crew once we get to Starbase 634, to go along with some newly graduated cadets and some enlisted with whatever senior officers they can find.
My question is: Are you up to the task? It's a challenge, but together, We Got This.
