Obsidian Command

Welcome to Obsidian Command!
Federation Stardock, Loki System

Obsidian Command logo

Obsidian Command is the headquarters starbase for the Ninth (Obsidian) Fleet. It's based in the Loki star system, orbiting Loki III, and is a hub of activity for all of the task forces that form this group. Led by station commander Commander Amaya Lance and the fleet's Joint Fleet Command, the base regularly hosts diplomatic conferences, scientific experiments and is the central focus of a huge range of missions.

Out of character, Obsidian Command stands for the values of Obsidian Fleet - friendship, fun, and quality writing within a supportive environment. We're looking for players who are interested in promoting and expanding those values to create a fantastic place where we can all enjoy writing in the Star Trek universe as friends. We will also help write some of the official history and lore of Obsidian Fleet. If you think that's you, submit an application today!

We're looking for all kinds of players and characters - we have a range of Starfleet, Marine, Diplomatic, Civilian and "Other" positions available. If what you'd like to do isn't listed on the Manifest, contact us with details of what you'd like to do and we'll consider your idea.

Join us today - the headquarters (and her garrisoned Rhode Island ship the USS August) awaits your transfer!

Welcome aboard to our two new players: Dak, playing Ensign Damien Ward, and Luke, playing Lt Commander Jonathan Russell. Both characters are taking up roles in the Counselling department - there must have been something that made them both want to get into the minds of the reprobates of the station...

Please join me in welcoming them, and be sure to inundate them both with JP starters!

In other news, we're almost at a point of closing out 'The Admiral's Daughter' mission. What will follow is a period of in-between time for freeform activity before we jump into something new.

Thanks for reading

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

Hope you all had a good rest, enjoyed the downtime, had a wonderful 4th July, etc.

I'm kicking off our new plotline, "The Admiral's Daughter" - a hopefully fun little jaunt taking us off the station and to the planet's surface below in search of some lost lovers...

This is for everyone to get involved with, so if you don't have a directly relevant character I suggest you try and make one! There's plenty of opportunities to do something new, if you're not sure just give me a nudge.

Information on Obsidian the planet can be found here: https://www.obsidianfleet.net/db/obsidian-planet/
Hopefully this can give you some inspiration to do something unique.

As always, thanks for playing!

Hey everyone!

We're about at the point where the threads from our latest story arc 'Federation Day' are wrapping up. Thanks for engaging and having fun with it! I'll close the mission group down properly in the next couple of days, so if you have anything pressing to add, now's the time.

We're looking at another 'downtime' period at the moment, and likely another short time-jump between plots to allow things to settle down in-character. This is an opportunity for bits of character development to happen before we do anything else, as well as a good spot to create a new NPC if you have some more ideas. If you're wanting any help with this, give Kerry or I a nudge.

Keep an eye out for the start of our next mission arc: "The Admiral's Daughter" as it promises to be a bit of a break from station life.

Also: It's not too late to get cracking on a piece for the Golden Padd contest running in Obsidian Fleet. The topic can be anything you like, so get thinking and if you have the urge why not submit something? Check out the details on the main OF website for how to enter.

Thanks for all the fun.

» GDPR & Privacy Policy

Posted on 19 May 2018 @ 4:14am by Commander Amaya Lance in Website Update

Hi everyone

Some of you may have seen this on the main OF page, but I thought it would be good to make sure this is shared across the site. As some of you know, next week the EU area institutes the new General Data Protection Regulations, meaning we have to be a little more compliant with privacy and data, etc.

To this end, I have added a Privacy Policy statement to the 'Join' page on the website so that anyone signing-up has this stated to them before they do anything.

For the rest of you, this is primarily for information only and is mainly to ensure we align with the rest of OF. If you have any questions relating to this, please contact me and I'll do my best to fill you in from the 45 minute training session I got at work last week...

The new privacy policy is enclosed below.

Thanks team!

AKA Cmdr Amaya Lance - Obsidian Command CO


Privacy Policy

Obsidian Command (“Site” or “We”) collect and use personal information solely to provide an online collaborative writing environment. Where feasible, We collect personal information only with the knowledge and consent of the individual concerned (“Individual”), and, if the Individual notifies us that they wish to revoke their consent, We will make a best effort to remove all personal information related to the Individual from our Site within one Calendar Month of the request.

This Privacy Policy, along with our Cookie Policy, Do Not Track Policy, and Your California Privacy Rights page, define in full how the Site collects, manages and processes an Individual’s personal information.

Your rights

You may have certain rights in relation to your information including a right to access or to correct the information we hold on you. Some of these rights will only apply in certain circumstances, however, such as the right to be forgotten. They will generally not be available if we required by law to keep the information or if the information is relevant to a legal dispute. If you would like to exercise or discuss, any of these rights, please contact the Data Controller.

You can remove consent, where you have provided it, at any time, as well as update any of your opt-in preferences by logging into your account.

You can ask us to confirm if we are processing your information.
You can ask for access to your information.
You can ask to correct your information if it’s wrong.
You can ask us to delete your information.
You have a right to be forgotten and you can ask that our systems stop using your information.

You can ask us to restrict how we use your information.
You can ask us to stop using your personal information, but only in certain cases.
You have the right to complain to the relevant supervisory authority.

What we collect
“Required Member Information”: When an Individual signs up for the Site (becoming a “Member”), We collect the Member’s name, age, email address, language and timezone.

“Optional Member Information”: We allow a Member, at their discretion, to provide additional contact information, a geographic location, interests and a biography.

“Access Logs”: When an Individual visits the Site, We collect incidental personal information in the Site’s logs including the Individual’s IP address and user agent.

Collected Information
Required Member Information and Optional Member Information are collected with an Individual’s consent when the Individual signs up for the Site or edits their account within the Site. To participate in the Site, a Member must provide all Required Member Information. A Member may provide a pseudonym instead of their real name if they do not wish to disclose their real name.

Access Logs are collected by our web server and web application when an Individual uses the Site.

Why is information collected?
Required Member Information is collected to allow a Member to participate in the Site. A Member’s name, email address and timezone are listed on their profile. A Member’s email address will also be used to contact the Member and to send the Member story posts and other content directly related to the Site. A Member’s age is only used to confirm the Member meets the legal requirements to participate in this Site.

Optional Member Information is collected to allow a Member to share more details about themselves to other Members of the Site.

Access Logs are collected for diagnosing technical problems with our Site. In rare situations, We may also use Access Logs to ban an Individual found to be acting inappropriately with the Site, including, but not limited to, violating the rules of the Site, placing an undue burden on the Site or violating applicable laws (“Inappropriate Use”).

Where your information will be held
When we share your information, your information may be transferred outside the European Economic Area.

We store our information on cloud servers located in the USA or engage vendors which do not always have equivalent data protection laws to those applicable in Europe. The transfer of this information is therefore governed by a contract including standard contractual clauses (SCCs) approved by the European Commission. Wherever possible all data is retained within the European Economic Area to ensure compliance with all applicable data protection laws.

When you provide us with this information you are consenting that we may collect and use it in the way we’ve set out.

We will keep your information for as long as it is reasonably necessary. It will depend on factors such as whether you’ve still got an active account or have interacted with recent Members. We will retain and use your registration information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations only.

We will only transfer data to jurisdictions outside the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where the appropriate safeguards set out in the GDPR are in place.

Information we share
A Member’s name, email address, time zone and Optional Member Information are shared with other Members of the Site through the Member’s user profile.

A Member’s name, age, email address, time zone and Optional Member Information may also be shared with Obsidian Fleet, the organisation within which the Site belongs.

There are certain circumstances where we may transfer your personal data to authorised and other third parties. Some examples of when your personal information is transferred to other third party organisations are as follows:

We may share information about you with other members Obsidian Fleet so that we can provide the best service to our group, including Manifest updates or reasons within the Fleet Law. They are bound to keep your information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and the Obsidian Fleet Privacy Policy.

If we’re required to by law, or under any regulatory code or practice we follow, or if we are asked by any public or regulatory authority.
Your personal data may be shared if it is made anonymous and aggregated, as in such circumstances the information will cease to be personal data.

Access Logs are generally not shared, although they may in rare circumstances be shared with Obsidian Fleet or the “Host" to diagnose technical problems or when an Individual is reasonably believed to have committed Inappropriate Use of the Site.

The Site or the Host may share personal information with relevant law enforcement authorities as required to comply with applicable laws. The Site will notify the Individual if permitted by applicable laws, when this occurs.

The Site will not share any personal information with any other parties without the Individual’s consent.

Information Security
We are committed to keeping your personal information safe. We’ve got physical, technical and administrative measures in place to prevent unauthorised access or use of your information and we ensure that we comply with our own internal security policies.

We will also routinely refresh our information to ensure we keep it up-to-date.

Data Retention
Required Member Information and Optional Member Information is retained as long as the Individual remains a Member of the Site. Once an Individuals account is deleted this information is removed from the server and no longer accessible. Historical information posted to the site by the Individual will remain and identifiable by either a Guest tag and/or their Character name only as in such circumstances the information will cease to be personal data.

Access Logs are retained for a period of 12 months.

How can information be removed?
A Member may submit a request to the Command Team to have their account deleted and all Required Member Information and Optional Member Information removed from the Site. This will cause them to no longer be a Member.

The Site cannot ensure that other Members do not personally retain Required Member Information or Optional Member Information shared with these other Members through the Site as described in this Policy.

The Site routinely deletes all Access Logs, so an Individual does not need to request its removal explicitly.

Cookie Policy

The Obsidian Command website uses cookies solely to provide an online collaborative writing environment.

Cookies are small pieces of text sent back and forth between your web browser and a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Site to recognise you and make your next visit easier and the Site more useful to you. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies.

When an Individual accesses or uses the Site, the Site may place a number of cookies in the Individual’s web browser. We use both session and persistent cookies. Specifically, We use cookies to authenticate Individuals and prevent fraudulent use of accounts, and We use cookies to remember an Individual’s email address when prompting the Individual to log in again.

Do Not Track Policy

The Obsidian Command website does not track Individuals over time to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals.
