Welcome to the Science Vessel USS Mark Miller!

The USS Mark Miller NCC 120694, or the M&M as it is affectionately known, is a Nova-class science vessel operating in the farthest reaches of the Federation in the Beta Quadrant. The mission is long-term scientific survey and study of planets and systems charted by long-range explorers and probes. The M&M is tasked by leadership at Deep Space Thirteen to perform more detailed analysis and study of target planets.

After the Hobus supernova in 2387 destroyed Romulus, the Romulan Star Empire was thrust into chaos. Factions within the fractured empire vied for control, and Klingons knocked on their doorstep, striking deep into former Empire space. By the time the dust settled, close to a third of the former Empire was annexed by the Klingon Empire. The Romulans that remained founded a Republican government in the Rator system and started to forge peaceful relations with other galactic powers.

Now, eight years after the cataclysm, the galaxy has become somewhat more stable. Federation aid still flows into Romulan space as there are still planets recovering. The Klingons, with more territory and power, have become more aggressive, striking out in old patterns and threatening Federation border worlds.

This is the galaxy within which the USS Mark Miller operates. The ship focuses on science, but run-ins with the Klingons this close to the Empire are inevitable. Will the little ship persevere?

Mark Miller was a founder of UCIP and this vessel and sim are named in honor of his service. Additionally, the Registry number of 120694 is an homage of the founding date of 06 December 1994.

This message is a long time in coming.  After closing the last mission, I have taken a long, hard reflective look into my simming career, and decided it is time to retire.  Having done this since 2001, I am now at an end to my time and motivation to write Star Trek fiction.  So, as of this year, I am officially retiring from simming.

As for what this means for the Mark Miller... that is up to UCIP.  As of this message, I am handing control over to UCIP Admiralty to do with as they will.  For the time being, characters and etc will remain active.  I will retain administrative control over the site itself until such a time that UCIP Admiralty informs me they have someone to pass it on to.  A while back I emailed October, the current UCIP President, but have yet to hear back.  So, who knows how long it might be.

Feel free to continue to write here, if that is your wish, or transfer your characters to another sim.  If you wish to use your character elsewhere, let me know via PM and I can remove you from the manifest and release the character.  As for anything official, missions have been suspended until a new CO takes up the mantle.  And if you happen to have some Great Ideas ands wish to CO the sim yourself, let me know and I can pass your name on to UCIP Admiralty.

As you have likely seen, I have closed out our Shakedown mission.  I must apologize profusely for the lack of attention I have given the M&M over the past few months.  I am not sure what our next mission will be quite yet.

For now, we will be at the Starbase for shoreleave and R&R.  Feel free to post on the base, the M&M, or the planet.  Lots to see and do on any of those places.  :)

UCIP is looking for a Social Media person.  The duties are fairly straight forward:

- Post Star Trek, SciFi, etc articles on the UCIP Facebook page (the posts are automatically tweeted to Twitter)
- Post a recurring short "My Favorite Trek" interview with a different fleet member every month (An example will be done soon)
- Every 2 months or so post a longer article (about whatever topic you like) or a longer full-length interview

If this is something that interests you, drop a line to star.idf@gmail.com

I've just issued a bit of plot via my NPC.  :)  So, from here, we will pretty easily figure out that the TribbleMatics are replicating themselves by consuming various ship bits.  Not only spare parts and supplies, but operational bits as well (since they can't tell the difference).  We'll get more system glitches, culminating in some pretty severe problems a little later.  ;)

For now, here are some things people can do:
- Fix issues caused by TribbleMatics "eating" components.
- Hunt them down and destroy/deactivate them.
- Experience glitches and system errors.
- Collect data on the imminent planetary collision.
- Brainstorm an idea to solve the infestation.

Please feel free to DM me anytime on Nova or Discord with any further questions or if you need to brainstorm a post idea.
