The year is 2395 and the USS Tomcat is a modified Akira Class Heavy Cruiser/Light Carrier equipped for Special Operations and has been going for 12 and a half years. It is a slow Simulation ideal for those who want to Sim at a leisurely pace but like all Sims, it has rules and guidelines, if you are tagged you have 3 days to respond if not tagged then you can insert your PC where you are added it can be done, so if you are interested in any position please PM me. Now it is a Sub Class to the standard Akira Class the Emergency evacuation maximum load has gone down from 5k to 1k, with some other internal modifications to account for extra Marines. The ship can accommodate 467 Marines and their equipment plus their shuttles and ground equipment, the Marines on the Tomcat are Rifles from the newly reconstituted 95th Rifle Regiment. The ship currently has 467 Rifles serving on her.
The Tomcat is a Fleet/Marine commanded ship, while it is marine orientated she does have Fleet officers serving on her, i.e. NOT marines. Unlike other Akira class ships, the Tomcat is a sub-type or modified, as in she has 3 Squadrons of Gryphon class fighters each Squadron has 12 fighters. There is a Fleet Squadron where the CAG is a fleet Officer, a Marine Squadron pilot of the 95th and a Klingon Squadron. The ship mainly patrols the border regions of the Mira Sector but does occasionally do missions deeper into Federation space...
Currently, her missions are set in unclaimed space and the ship's major base of operations will be Starbase 51 which is being constructed on the border of Federation/Unclaimed space whose nearest planetary systems are New Xindi Systems and the Talarian Union and the Neutral planet of Galen IV and some unexplored systems, where danger can lurk in every system.
