Under the command of Vice Admiral Ralph Planthold, the Dark Phoenix is the starship based in Lawrence, Kansas.
The Dark Phoenix, as of July 2018, has a crew of 31 souls comprised of 9 officers, 14 enlisted, and 8 cadets. We welcome crewmembers of all ages and look forward to including you among us.
Assisting Vice Admiral Planthold with the administration of the ship are Admiral Sunnie Planthold (his wife) as Executive Officer and Lieutenant Tracy Mengel as Second Officer.
Our ship is a social ship: we enjoy Game Nights every other Friday, schedule picnics during the summers, enjoy quarterly movie nights, venture out to places such as the Topeka Performing Arts Center and the Kauffman Center for special Star Trek events, and much more. We also enjoy community service such as donating to the Lawrence Humane Society, ringing bells each Christmas for the Salvation Army, and donating goods to the homeless and battered womens shelters.
We also enjoy our roleplay and cosplay, so if you want to dress up as an Andorian, Klingon, Borg, Romulan, Ferengi, or some other race, feel free to do so. We accept all kinds...as long as they don't try to assimilate us!
