Welcome to the USS Tomcat NCC 62114 Akira Class Sub-type

Bronze Sim for December 2016 Silver Sim for February 2017 Silver Sim for January 2018




MOTTO: NO SURRENDER, NO RETREAT Est 2387



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 sports 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 Regimental 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 defences 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..........

Another Announcement

As the Tomcat was initially a marine commanded ship of the 95th Rifles there were some unique ribbons and badges found ONLY on the Tomcat sim so these awards will be solely Tomcat sim based and if any of the crew who gained some while serving on her posted to another ship, they would need to get their new COS permission to display them on their chars Wiki Bio or mention it in their "Awards".

While the Tomcat is no longer commanded by Marines some of the ribbons have remained and one of those is the 95th Ribbon this is awarded to those who have done 6 months on the Tomcat. Most of those who have the 1 year or 5-year service award has already had this award added to their site character bios. Looking through the records again there are two members who just today got their 1-year service. This Ribbon should have been awarded to them upon their 6 months service.

AS before said Ribbon has been added to their character bios.

So better late than never the recipients of the 95th Ribbon award for a six-month service to the USS Tomcat are:-

Lieutenant Remington Dodd
Lt. Jg Nicole Taggert

Congratulations and apologies for late delivery.
