After some roster changes, a few resignations, and some fat cutting, Obsidian Colony has open positions for department heads. An incredibly entertaining, fast paced, and exciting SIM, Obsidian Colony has seventeen VERY active players with over thirty five posts this month already. We are well on our way to becoming the premiere SIM in Obsidian Fleet!

Do you have what it takes to run a fully operational hospital? A Starfleet Medical, of sorts, on our colony world of Providence? As Chief Medical Officer, you would be responsible for the health of hundreds of Starfleet officers, marines, and their families. This is your chance to shine in the medical field.

Think diplomacy is dead? Not on Obsidian Colony, where keeping the peace between Starfleet, the Marines, and the civilian population may be more than most could bite off. Think you have what it takes to go head-to-head with our closest neighbors, the Breen? How about the Romulans? Think you'd be ideal for first contact with the indigenous people of Providence. These are just a few of the opportunities coming for the future of Obsidian Colony.

I'm still looking for a Marine XO to jump in and help out. On Obsidian Colony, you won't be tied to one place, or to our missions for that matter. The Marines will be autonomous, able to go where they want, do as they please, and create missions of their own. I've already got two members of the command team in place for the Marines, do you want to the the last piece of the puzzle?

By the way, did I mentioned all the screwed up heads on Obsidian Colony? We're in desperate need of a Chief Counselor to sort us all out. A CO who's falling for his newly appointed XO, an XO with a dark past which clouds her current judgement, a Strat Ops officer with a attitude bigger than the planet he's standing on. All this and more to sort through on Obsidian Colony.

Thanks for your time,

Captain Matthew Stone

Commanding Officer

Obsidian Colony
