Check out our latest Fleet Action!



The Dirty Jobs of Starfleet. It's not pretty, it's not exciting, and it's not glamorous, but it needs doing, and Tiberious Rain is proud to be doing it. Should he be? Probably not. But then he would be breaking Tib's Laws #7 and 10. And that's something he won't do willingly.

USS Rubidoux (Archive)


The USS Rubidoux, named for a suburb of Riverside, part of the Greater Las Angeles area, which was then in turn named for Louis Rubidoux, an explorer of the mid west who born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1796. Rubidoux, the man was a French Canadian fur trapper who made frequent treks to California. He wasn’t the first to discover California or even one of it’s most renown explorers. So too does the ship named after his namesake mimic the life of the man. A California class utility ship, the USS Rubidoux is a dirty jobs ship. Conducting Second contacts, transporting supplies, or conducting long term surveys of already discovered regions. It’s a working ship. It won’t feature in news headlines, but the work it does is just as vital. Both namesake, and vessel alike carried honorable positions in history. And some day maybe they’ll figure out why the grav plating on deck 2 always peaks at 95% efficiency. These are her voyages.
