Welcome to the USS Arizona!

Welcome to the USS Arizona! We are a collaborative writing group working to produce a quality work of fiction together to share with the Internet. Our story currently takes place in the spring of 2025, with tensions between the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China mounting after the COVID-19 pandemic has come to a close. The USS Arizona (SSN-803) is a Block V Virginia Class fast attack submarine of the United States Navy. As the newest submarine in commission and the second Block V, it has a larger hull size, upgraded technology, and gender neutral crew capabilities that the previous Block I-IV submarines didn’t offer. From underwater and aerial drones to increased sensor capabilities and an upgraded weapons platform, the Arizona is one of the most capable submarines under the water.

In our story, Arizona is currently based out of the Kitsap-Bangor Naval Station in Washington and is preparing to depart on its first cruise. Operation Triton is a public relations cruise that will have the submarine circumnavigate the North American continent, going under the ice pack and through the Panama Canal. The Arizona is the first submarine to complete such a journey since the USS Triton circumnavigated the globe in 1960.

Our community is heavily based on collaboration, as our story is unique and requires research on the Navy and submarines. Importantly, you do not need to have any military experience or knowledge to participate. The members and staff pride themselves on being available to work with each other and help with research needed to write a quality story. Frequent conversations and discussions for specific scenes/posts take place to help guide members through procedures that may occur as part of our writing.

Members are required to be at least eighteen years of age and to participate in our Discord server. To learn more about our story please visit our database, view our page on how to participate, and join us in Discord and say hello!.

"You've got the shop for a bit."

The young woman behind the register looked up from a magazine she'd been paging through, giving Jon a nod of acknowledgement. "Sounds good. Do I need to lock up or will you be back beforehand?"

Liz made her way to the quarters shared by the supply officer and engineer first. She figured rousting the chop and ENG would be easiest seeing as she didn’t have to request the meeting in front of the one department head, although acting, that wasn’t invited to the meeting. She…

The bookstore was quiet and dust had started to settle on surfaces. More correctly dust had settled, Jon had cleaned the place, then it had settled again... wash, rinse, repeat. The pandemic had, without a doubt, changed things and about the only good thing he could think of from it…

The restaurant was a study in old-school elegance and Barry, dressed in suit that fell just shy of a designer label, seemed at home there. Leonie wondered, as she entered and spoke to the host, how he found these places, but he always did. No matter where she was, he…
