Welcome aboard the USS Yamato!

"The claim 'I was only following orders' has been used to justify too many tradegies in our history. Starfleet does not want officers who will blindly follow orders without analysing the situation" Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

"Yamato". A name which has always been associated with the Legendary IJS Yamato of the Japanese Navy. Originally named after the Yamato Province in Japan, the 20th Century Battleship was one of the largest, heavily armed vessels ever constructed for war on Earth.

Today however, the name Yamato has a very different meaning. Newly refitted with the latest and most advanced technology, the Federation Starship Yamato is a formidable apponant in any situation. The new refits of the Sovereign class included the installation of additional science and specialist laboratories, and extra equipment for long range, deep space missions. As well as new advanced tactical systems and computer enhancements. The Yamato is one of Starfleet's most advanced Sovereign Class Attack Cruisers.

The ship is commanded by Commodore Kaede Kayano, a decorated officer of the fleet who is a veteran of the Dominion War and commander of Task Force 23, in the 7th Fleet, commonly known as Theta Fleet.

The Yamato is assigned to wherever Starfleet needs it to go. One day it could find itself patrolling the Romulan Neutral Zone, investigating why monitoring posts have fallen silent and the next it may find itself on the other edge of the quadrant dealing with easy to anger Cardassians and sly Ferengi who are out to make a large profit in their latest enterprise.

Welcome to the adventures of the Federation Starship Yamato. May you find us an interesting crew, where nothing is ever truly "normal". However you can be guaranteed a fun and interesting Star Trek experience whilst serving on the ship that carries the legendary name Yamato.

Cade walked into the quarters he shares with Katya, carrying a spaniel puppy he purchased. Katya was still on duty.

He put the puppy on the floor and watched her start exploring....never straying far from him.

Katya was running late. One of her ops officers was giving away cockapoo puppies…

Inside the box there was a tricorder, and beneath that a square of the softest material that she'd been able to find. In Ivory, minty green and emerald she'd put together a blanket, a triquetra that became a triskele pattern making up the bulk of the blanket. Each stitch was…

After the onslaught of emotions in the meeting, Kasia had carefully kept her hand in his so that her calm could wash over him. It was difficult for her to fathom the idea of telepathy sometimes, but she loved that he felt that he could share with her. Their bond…

Kasia sighed as she entered sickbay to get her routine physical. Assaulted by the odor of the room, she had to pause to breathe more shallowly as she entered. The sharp scent of cleaning agents and the gentle medicinal smell of the compounds held within sickbay blended to form a…
