Simming History Edit

The USS Lothlorien is a United Space Federation sim, and was founded in 1996. It is one of the longest running sims in the USF, and remains active today. The "Loth" (as the crew calls it) sims every Friday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Fictional History Edit

(Information still to come on the founding of the original Lothlorien)

The USS Lothlorien A was launched on Stardate 199609.06 under Captain Sean Astro. The ship was crippled by pirates and crash landed on Cook V on Stardate 199906.25 under the command of Captain Quint Kivo. The crew was temporarily reassigned to the USS Trailblazer, until the USS Lothlorien B was launched on Stardate 199910.01 (still under Kivo's command). Shortly after, Commander John Styre was promoted to captain, and went on to serve as Commanding Officer for nearly six years. On Stardate 200608.04, the now Rear Admiral Styre destroyed the Lothlorien B in order to save Earth. Construction on the Lothlorien C was completed on Stardate 200608.11, under the command of Captain T'Zal. Several months later Captain T'Zal resigned for personal reasons and Rear Admiral John M. Styre returned to the command seat.

Technical Specifications Edit

Commissioned: Stardate 200608.05
Bridge Plaque Dedication: "There will be an answer, let it be..."

Physical Size
Length: 165 meters
Width: 81 meters
Height: 31 meters
Mass: 110 000 metric tons

Crew Complement
Officers: 75 (80 max)

Holodecks: None per se, but one of the ship's three cargo bays contains integrated hologram emitters and may be converted to a holodeck when empty, and under normal circumstances is configured as such. When carrying a great deal of cargo or people, the holodeck is generally converted back into a cargo bay.

Personal: 1
Cargo: 1
Emergency: 2
Computer system

V-109-A Bio-Neutral Duotronics Computer Core system (NOTE: Most Nova class vessels do not have a bioneural computer system. The Lothlorien was outfitted with an upgraded system due to its later construction.)

Accessory Vessels
1 Yellowstone-Class Runabout (Formerly Type-9B Shuttlecraft):
U.S.S. Anduin
2 Type-16 Shuttlecraft
2 Work Bee utility craft
1 WaveRider atmospheric shuttlecraft

Ceries F-Type Matter/Antimatter Engine
T2-16 fusion impulse engine: Maximum Impulse Speed: .75c; Standard "Full Impulse" cruising speed: .25c

Warp Drive
Ceries-designed Coil Assembly
Dilithium Focus Lens Matrix
Standard Version 3 magneto-hydrodynamic gas-fusion thrusters
Standard Cruising Speed: Warp 6.3
Maximum Cruising Speed: Warp 8, twelve hours
Maximum Emergency Speed: Warp 9, short bursts
Maximum (Theoretical) Cloaked Speed: Warp 5 (tested under theoretical limits; class never flown with operational cloaking device)

Eleven Type-IX Phaser Arrays, 6 MW per emitter, and equipped with computer-controlled multi-fire:
Four dorsal saucer
Two ventral saucer
Two aft saucer
Three lateral stardrive
Three Standard Torpedo Launchers:
Two fore (one photon, one quantum)
One aft (photon)
55 Type-6, Mark-X M/A Photon Torpedoes (30 gigajoule yield)

Defensive Systems
Asymmetrical, shifting subspace graviton field.
11 shield grids: 150 MW/grid, total 1.6 GW
Multi-phase graviton/polarity flux capability, essentially enabling the shields to automatically rotate shield frequencies and alignments.
The Lothlorien does have the ability to fly through atmosphere as well as land, a useful capability for scientific missions.
