Simming History Edit
Starbase Everest is a United Space Federation sim. It was founded in 1996 by then Fleet Captain Kieron Lynx.The SIM itself lasts for one hour on Sunday nights from 8:00 - 9:00 PM EST (5:00 PM - 6:00 PM PST).
The departments that it houses are engineering, intelligence, medical, operations, science, and security/tactical. Operations and Intelligence are invitational departments for experienced SIMmers - these departments are much less defined in their role on the Starbase and thus have provided many experienced officers the additional challenge of creating their own definition, boundaries, and environment in the confines of the SIM itself. The command staff are constantly considering new possibilities for departments and positions to fit the needs of the group.
The crew continues the traditions and respect that Starbase Everest has earned over the course of the last 10 years.

Fictional History Edit
Starbase Everest is located in the Tecra System, Alpha Quadrant. It orbits the planet Tecra IV, also nicknamed "New Lugh." The Tecra System borders the Beta Quadrant, is several systems away from the Romulan Neutral Zone, and is approximately a weeks travel at high warp velocity to the nearest densely populated portion of the Federation. The only inhabited planet is Tecra IV, which contains a city and surrounding settlements by the Lughian race. Their ambassador to the Federation is Speaker Lucial, who lives in the Imperial Palace in the heart of the city.
The Starbase is a long cylindrical column with seven Pyras attached to it, labeled A - G. Pyra C is a civilian port while Pyra G is a highly secure section of the station that is home to Starfleet Intelligence and Research and Development. While the Starbase does act in the typical function to the fleet, as well as a traveling and commerce point to many ships en route to the Beta Quadrant, much of this genuine interaction is a cover for the work being done on Pyra G. Only a few officers on the Starbase are uniquely aware of the existence and operation of the various groups on Pyra G. At one point, the Chief of Starfleet Intelligence himself, Admiral HyRisk, occupied an office on Pyra G.
Two starships are permanently assigned to the Starbase. Originally experimental ships, both now proudly display NCC registries. The USS Infinity, an Infinity class ship, was designed primarily as a battleship and is equipped with state of the art armaments and defense capabilities. Moreover, the propulsion system has been overhauled to increase maneuverability at the cost of top warp speeds. The USS Mystique, a defiant/science class hybrid, only comes with standard starship armaments for a ship her size. However, the Mystique is in constant use for her upgraded and experimental technology involved sensors, science devices, deflector technology, and inertial dampeners. Both ships see constant usage and are deployed depending on the mission.
Many of the crew have graduated from Starfleet Academy and contain advanced degrees in the field they serve in. An Ambassadorial staff is also housed including a Vulcan and Lughian ambassador. Until formal relations are re-established, the Romulan ambassador has been expelled from Starbase Everest.

The Pyras (Outer Ring):
Starbase Everest is composed of a main control center surrounded by 7 main docking stations called Pyras. Each Pyra is designated with a letter, A through G. Pyra A through F each have three docking spaces and are used for casual intergalactic commerce.
Pyras A through F also each have two smaller shuttlebays where the bulk of Everest's shuttle compliment is docked.
The bulk of Pyra G is classified and requires the highest security clearance for authorized use. The USS Infinity and other new Starships are docked at Pyra G. Access to the Infinity docking bay is available to all Starbase Everest Starfleet personnel.
PYRA G and The Iconian Transporter:
The Iconian Transporter is a highly advanced device capable of transporting personnel almost limitless distances (actual range of the transporter is classified). Unlike other transporter devices, the Iconian Transporter opens a window in space approximately 8'X5'. Developed by the Iconians over 200,000 years ago and recently given to the Federation by the Hemarians, the Federation uses it for humanitarian purposes. No weapons of any kind can pass through the transporter, only scanning and monitoring devices. Under certain circumstances it can be used for covert intelligence operations.
