Welcome to the USS Tomcat NCC 62114 Akira Class Sub-type
The origins of the 95th Rifles Regiment was the 1800's AD before the Napoleonic Wars of that time, they were the first Regiment to sport Green Uniforms and thus became known as the Green Jackets. Back then they used the Baker Rifle and as time went on they were merged with other regiments and the name 95th was all but relegated to the history books and their Regimental Colours and standards were cased the 95th Rifles was also the only known 19th Century British Regiment to use the White Cord rating. Around 2388 a then Commander had an idea, shortly after she transferred to SFMC and upon making Colonel she re-christened the 95th Rifle Regiment, while currently not as big as its forebearer the revitalized 95th is building to Regemantal level, currently they are known just as the 95th Rifles, all the marines on the USS Tomcat are 95th Rifles, but as they are Captain Somers project they will leave the ship when she does.
Currently the Rifles are in larger number than Fleet Officers as the Tomcat initially started out as a Marine Sub-type/Fleet Support light Carrier, the marine onboard number 125, 24 of these are Bravo Unit and are all Chosen Men as they wear the White Cord of Courage, Bravo Unit is hand picked and is the Captain's personal bodyguard when not doing other duties. The other 101 are Alpha Unit while 95th they are regular troops.
The USS Tomcat is an Akira Class ship, with a slight difference, while its armaments and defenses remain standard to some extent its evacuation capacity has been lowered to account for the extra fighter squadrons and Marines. The ship is commanded by an EX-Marine former Colonel turned Fleet Officer Captain Jasmine Somers, her missions are different from other standard missions due to the load-out and set-up of her crew and equipment.
So come join the Tomcat Crew as they head out to the less explored regions of Federation Space in attempt to stop the Hostile and Rogue Intelligence Agencies and other undesirables on the fringes of known space.
THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES..........

Posted on 16 Nov 2016 @ 3:36pm by Captain Jasmine Somers in General News
It is my honour to give out some awards for the months of September and October to individuals who have done well, these awards are sim based so they are separate from the Fleet, this has been done on the USS Tomcat since before the sim joined Pegasus Fleet and I see no need to change it as it shows what I think of the simmers who have gotten these awards. All the crew can work up to getting such awards, all it takes is participation and effort and it is with those words in mind that these following awards are given.
These should have been done at the ending of each month, but due to problems arising with my real life and in other areas, they got overlooked, so now to the awards.
For Participating in the simulation post "Orbital Scouting," Lieutenant Commander Sheela Swiftpaws and Lieutenant Cahill are hereby awarded the ships GENERAL PARTICIPATION AWARD and they both also get a joint MISSION EXCELLENCE AWARD for said post, this award was for September 2016.
For her participation in "Arrival of a New Doctor" new member Lieutenant Jg Akhul K'Tel the ship's new Doctor is hereby awarded the GENERAL PARTICIPATION AWARD and the same award for "Ground Surveillance" contribution to the sim for October and November 2016.
For her contribution and participation in "Insertion and Scouting" and "Ground Surveillance," Commander Maia Sterling is also awarded the PARTICIPATION AWARD for October and November 2016.
Now for the crew who have served loyally over the 6 years I have been in command, they have put up with my eccentricities and manic ways and as such, they deserve the following award. This award in this instance is for the longest serving members of the USS Tomcat Sim, but it is in no way unique to time served, the award is available to all to earn it.
So I am happy to show my appreciation for their patience and loyalty to the sim for 5 to 6 years service and to honour the following Officers with the EXEMPLARY SERVICE COMMENDATION Which is given under the "Awarded to those who show dedication and loyalty to the simulation they are part of and to the simulations Community." (as said in the Awards section).
Please congratulate the following who are given the EXEMPLARY SERVICE COMMENDATION Award:-
Commander Maia Sterling - First Officer/Chief Science Officer
Lieutenant Commander Sheela Swiftpaws - Chief Intelligence Officer/Communications Officer
Lieutenant Alexanderia Cahill - Chief Medical Officer
All awards will be added to named officers character bios by days end today 16 November 2016.
Congratulations to all those named, it is every COs pleasure to hand out awards and Medals when hey have been earned, also these awards are recognised on the USS Tomcat Sim.
