Under the command of Rear Admiral Ralph Planthold, the Dark Phoenix is the starship based in Lawrence, Kansas.
The Dark Phoenix, as of November 2017, has a crew of 51 souls comprised of 17 officers, 23 enlisted, and 11 cadets. We welcome crewmembers of all ages and look forward to including you among us.
Assisting Rear Admiral Planthold with the administration of the ship are Admiral Sunnie Planthold (his wife) as Executive Officer and Captain John Bevan as Second Officer.
Our ship is a very social ship: we enjoy Game Nights every other Friday, have two Academy Nights each year, schedule picnics during the summers, enjoy occasional pizza and movie gatherings, venture out to places such as the Hutchinson Cosmosphere and the Museum of World Treasures in Wichita for Away Missions, and much more.
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!
