    Empok Nor has recovered from the Trevas Sector, stripped, refit & recertified by the S.C.E. to become an Alexandria-Class shipyard. In the post-Dominion War reconstruction period, it's the next Utopia Planetia. Hell's-Gate Station & its sister-station Starbase Avenger, both require personnel.

    Star Trek: Vengeance

    [​IMG]

    "This is the story of seven strangers who make the ultimate discovery ... the path to redemption."

    In 2390, the Federation has chosen to move forward from the days of wars and battles by returning to its roots - exploring strange new worlds. With the Gamma Quadrant remaining unexplored, the powers that be have sent one vessel into the quadrant on a five-year mission. But this is anything but ordinary. This adventure is more than a story of a ship, it's about those who have left their homes in search of strange new worlds and civilizations. Each person has their own story, their own struggle, and their lives cross with one another. While completing their mission, they will be discovering something far more valuable; themselves.

    Star Trek: Vengeance is a long-standing play by E-mail group. It is a character-driven, continuing plot adventure based in the Star Trek universe. We are currently recruiting new writers who are interested in creating dynamic characters, being involved in exciting, fresh plots, and focusing on characters more so than techno-babble. Just one post a week is required for participation! This Star Trek is like none other; think of Star Trek blended with TV's Dallas, Dynasty with a big-dose of science fiction. Interested? Join us today.

    Re: USS Hercules Tactical/Security Staff

    Want to try something less like the standard sim and more like a Tabletop game? Something where what you do actually matters and where your ships capabilities actually have a bearing on the game?

    I did and have only been able to find the standard sim format here. So I'm starting a game at

    http://www.neoaxial.com/cgi-bin/yabb2//YaBB.pl?num=1188257415

    Ship class to be determined by the group once it's assembled. Choices will be upgraded Ambassador class, stock Intrepid class, Steamrunner class with detachable science module, or an upgraded Niagara class.

    You'll be helping to not only explore outer space but also a different format as I attempt to blend the Star Trek setting and aspects of simming into the Play by Forum RPGs using full dice mechanics that I generally run.

    i.e.
    http://www.neoaxial.com/cgi-bin/yabb2//YaBB.pl?num=1167166474

    Many positions open. Including Captain!


    EDIT: If you happen to know of another group doing something like that point me to them to at least check them out. I haven't been able to locate anything.

    Star Trek: Redux

    Space, the final frontier.

    These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before.

    Welcome to Star Trek: Redux.



    This is a PBEM RPG based on the upcoming feature film by JJ Abrams with a cast of new faces for the crew of the NCC-1701 Enterprise.

    The RPG will be delving into stories from the original five year mission, however, interspersed with these will be new adventures and characters, which we hope will provide for some good story telling. As we are playing Trek in the 23rd century, there will be the obvious deference to using any characters or races that are chronologically inaccurate with the time frame. I.e. the Borg are not going to show up suddenly – well not without good reason anyway. The purpose here is to tell good stories and have fun doing it.

    So join us on Redux and we’ll begin our new five year mission, where everything every thing old is very new again.

    Let the adventure begin.

    This is an adult game and audition posts will be required.

    CHARACTERS AVAILABLE

    Commander Spock
    Dr. Bones McCoy
    Lt. Commander. Montgomery Scott
    Lt. Nyota Uhura
    Lt. Hikaru Sulu
    Ensign Pavel Chekov

    Original Characters are also welcome.

    PLEASE NOTE: This game is not apart of any fleet nor ever will be and game play will be restricted to only one ship.

    Hello everyone, I'd like to invite you all to the best forum based Trek RPG out there. We currently have 2 ships, the Intrepid class, Voyager and the Nebula class Endeavor and a fully functioning Federation space station, Deep Space 12. We focus on exploration and try to stay as canon as is humanly possible. Ie, you will never find some supership made up by fans or a shuttle capable of warp 15 or some such nonsense. Also, we are active, no posting and waiting 2 weeks for someone else. Some of our players post up to 8-10 posts a day!!

    So, if your looking for an active, fun, exciting Trek RPG (that has excellent graphics by the way, LCARS, Ship pics, great Character pics, etc.), please visit us at:

    I poked around horizons and noticed that you hadn't actually sunken deep enough to play on the Voyager, and instead wrote Voyager instead of Valiant. You might want to change your post to reflect that.

    The Unknown.

    The expanse of territory that lies beyond one's borders, never discovered.

    In the unknown lies the very antithesis to comfort and safety. Only hardship and uncertainty are guaranteed. Stars, planets, Alien species, astral pheomena... all are without clear definition until finally observed. Pain, tragedy, sickness and death... not only a certain risk, but virtually a promise to be paid in blood and tears.

    And yet the unknown beckons with the call of the sirens, reaching out for those with stalwart constitution and intrepid spirit. It desires those who are restless and thirst for adventure. It wants those willing to undergo great sacrifice in their tireless quests. It is the proving ground for those who can rightfully call themselves 'Explorers'.

    As long as the deeply rooted ambition for exploration remains within one's heart, there will always be explorers to travel the cosmos.

    The USS Shoho is a Carrier class vessel preparing to leave the Federation's borders for the Unknown expanses beyond.

    There are over two-thousand souls onboard the USS Shoho. All Explorers.

    All two-thousand of them have stories that just wait to be told.

    What will your story be?



    The USS Shoho promises to be a sim that provides just about everything that a Star Trek sim can promise; Dangerous Adversaries, Scientific Discoveries, Thrilling Adventure, Fulfilling Interaction, Intriguing New Wonders... and yes, a use for everybody.

    This sim is to be Character-Driven, which means the richness of the simming experience comes from what you- the individual simmer- put into it. Make no mistake, there will be plots of major significance, but the primary driving power will come from the individual posts that mold your character into someone that adds their own exquisite colors in the tapestry of our interaction.

    As of right now, here are the available Chief Positions Available;

    Chief Operations Officer
    Chief Science Officer
    Starfighter Commander

    But do not despair! As stated, there are over two-thousand people onboard, which means two-thousand roles that can be performed. It will not matter whether you have a Department Head position or just an assistant position because each and every one of will you be considered equally valuable to this sim. As such we hope to accumulate plenty of people in the various departments to provide for interaction and your own delicious sub-plots and character arcs.

    We need Engineers to wrestle with the logistics of power supply and conversation onboard a ship that is taxed to the limit due to its design. We need Starfighters by the score to engage in battles and dogfights- and there will be LOTS, guaranteed. We need scientists and medical personnel to help analyze and combat any biological dangers as well as record all the discoveries we come across. We need Diplomatic experts who can assist in First Contact procedures. We need Security Guards to maintain the peace onboard. We need Marines to kick butt in all directions. We even need civilians to perform certain functions onboard ship and even offer their own character arcs to who would wish to view them. All will be showcased, none will be left behind.

    Taking a lower-rung position is also easier on you because you will not be needlessly badgered to keep involved in the missions if Real Life is giving you a hard time. These are essentially part-time positions you can apply for, and you can post whenever you like. All we ask is the posts you do make be proper and respectful.

    If there is a specialist position that you can think of that we do not have listed, contact us.

    http://www.uss-shoho.starfleetuk.com....php?page=main

    USS Shoho is an affiliate of Task Force 17, Bravo Fleet. It is also a Play By SMS sim.

    USS Asgard Wants You!

    Welcome to the USS Asgard, a Norway Class vessel. The Norway Class vessel was originally concieved during the Dominion War as a diplomatic transport ship. But, this ship doesn't come without a bite. To ensure the Diplomats would be transported safely, Starfleet designed her to fight, and fight hard.

    Now, with the Dominian War at an end, the Asgard has been brought out of mothballs for a new purpose. Starfleet has abandoned the war effort and returned to her roots, to seek out new life and new civilization and to boldly go where no one has gone before. Will you be there when five new species of herbs are discovered on a desert planet? Will you serve aboard when we make first contact with new humanoids? Will you be there to defend the values that Starfleet and the Federation have held so dear?

    The Asgard needs you! A few good officers to serve her decks and build her legacy. Join today, and make the Asgard a Federation household name.

    Re: Dark Frontiers is recruiting

    (This is what I was looking for. Sorry about the breach of regulation.)

    The USS Repulse is an Excelsior class starship in the year 2311. The ship is shouded in mystery. The ship had been found drifting in the Typhon Expanse after being lost for three years, it's crew vanished without a trace.

    Now, as the new crew attempts to uncover the mystery surrounding the fate of their predecessors, they will spark a chain reaction that will eventually lead to the deaths of thousands of Federation citizens and nearly ignite a war with the most fearsome enemy in the Quadrant: the Romulans.

    In an era of exploration and peace, there is also a dark side where the shadow of war is ever-present. The Romulans want to start a war and the Klingons are suspicious of the Federation's attempts to help them evacuate Q'onoS. Danger lurks around every corner and the fate of the Federation may just hang on one starship. Ready to make some history?

    If you like intrigue and story archs, then the USS Repulse is the ship for you. All the major unknowns of the Lost Era (c.2294-2363) will be explored, including the shadowy events surrounding the Tomed Incident and the signing of the Treaty of Algeron, the Romulan Empire's withdrawl from interstellar affairs, and what actually happened to Q'onoS after the Khitomer Accords.

    THE FOLLOWING POSITIONS ARE OPEN:

    Executive Officer
    Chief Engineer
    Communications Officer
    Chief Operations Officer
    Deputy Chief of Security


    Sound like fun? Join today our PBF simm at USS Repulse Homepage

    Starbase Poseidon

    In the far reaches of cold darkness of space, Federation Scientists found what appeared to be a strategic windfall – a rogue planet hurdling through space aimed not just at Cardassia Prime but the Dominion as well. The Starbase Poseidon was towed in to position to be captured in the rogue planet’s gravity well and the planet and station were hit with a refined warp wave to help speed it along. The technology still experimental at the time ended up sending the planet and the Poseidon past Cardassia altogether. Hurdling in space somewhere near to the Gamma Quadrant the Poseidon realizes there are worse enemies there than just the Dominion.

    The USS Cambria is an Exaclibur class ship that originated in an alternate time line in the year of 2396, where the Federation and StarFleet exist no longer after having been wiped out by Species 99875. Only 12 starships survived the assault and managed to setup The Last Guard. The Last Guard sent the Cambria was sent to check on an anomaly in the hopes of learning more of Species 99875 travel technology. Instead the anomaly ended up sending the ship to our own timeline. After much debate among the fleet brass the Cambria was attached to Task Force 739 of Alpha Fleet and allowed to maintain their traditions and ways of the ancient earth US Army that they had readopted. Can you handle being a part of the Last Guard?

    Star Trek: Vengeance

    [​IMG]

    Star Trek: Vengeance , a long-running Play By E-mail group, is currently looking for a slew of new characters and players. Vengeance takes place in the year 2390 and is set on the Starship Demeckery and it's five-year mission of exploration in the Gamma Quadrant. We're looking for a Chief Engineer, Chief of Security, Conn Officer, Chief Science Officer and many more critical roles to our plot. If you're interested, join today and get in the action! JOIN VENGEANCE!

    Below is an excerpt from our episode titled "All Is Full Of Love"

    "How was work?"

    He forced himself to smile as he stood in the middle of the kitchen and
    looked at her with a grin. She stared back, playfully finishing the dishes
    before turning to him and crossing her arms over her apron. "Cristano
    Hunter, I know that expression."

    "Well we have reason to celebrate." He said, practiced, even he felt his
    enthusiasm suddenly die the moment he looked at her weary eyes. "Hey, you
    guys, hey!" He screamed. Arianna turned and gave him a roll of her eyes and
    Nic didn't even hear him. He walked around the counter and removed the ear
    buds from Nic's ears and gestured to the monitor as he drew a line
    underneath his neck.

    "Tonya, let me call you back. My father has something to say." She
    switched the monitor off and sat down at the table beside her twin brother
    Nic who looked disinterested as he pulled a magazine across the table.
    Cristano put his hand over the magazine.

    "Give me a few minutes, okay?" The request got an annoyed expression from
    his son and pained his father. He remembered little Nic, the boy who looked
    up to his father. This boy thought he was a man and looked forward to moving out and being independent. He also thought his father wasn't worthy of his attention or consideration.

    "I have some news. A few days ago I got word that I was being considered
    for a promotion. It means more responsibility and a lot of changes for us
    all. We'd also have to move."

    Keren tensed as Arianna and Nic both seemed to express everything from
    excitement to fear of losing touch with their friends and having to adjust
    to a new city. "Are we moving to San Francisco? That would be awesome. I can
    see myself as a California girl."

    "San Francisco? Cris, tell me you didn't accept."

    He looked to Keren, surprised that she didn't even bother to congratulate
    him. "We're not moving to San Francisco. I was offered a command. I'm
    Captain Cristano Hunter of the Starship Demeckery."

    "Demeckery? Sounds like a piece of-"

    "You stop right there, young man." Cristano warned.

    "I don't want to move to a ship. Mom, you aren't going to let him do this
    are you?" Arianna asked with disgust and hatred lacing each word.

    "Cris, did you accept?"

    He looked to her and lied. He hadn't, he was going to do so in the
    morning. "Yes," He said, never removing his eyes from her. "I did."

    Keren removed her apron and shook her head, stalking out of the room.
    "Oh sh*t, mom's pissed!" Nic exclaimed as if he was watching a movie.
    Cristano turned red as he stalked after her. "What is wrong with you? Why
    aren't you happy for me? After all the work and years I've put into my
    career-"

    "That's exactly why I'm mad! Your career. You don't bother to think about
    your family, your children, me. Oh no, you get an offer from Starfleet and
    you take it. Did you even once stop and think about us?"

    "The kids will get used to it. This is my chance to really do something
    with my life instead of slumming around some junky lab all damn day reading
    about people who are out there living their life. I'm tired, Keren. I'm
    tired of doing nothing."

    "I'm tired too, Cris. I'm tired of you doing things like this. Making
    decisions about our lives. Doing what you want to do."

    Cristano's chest grew large as he fought the anger in him. "I prayed
    about this long and hard and God-"

    "Don't you even bring God or your faith into this. That's always your
    excuse for doing things. Own up to your own mistakes for once and stop
    hiding behind your religion." She pointed her finger at him, jabbing her
    finger at him as if she were going to physically strike him at any moment.

    "I've stood around here for far too many years trying to make you happy.
    I've given you a home, a secure life, all the love that I can possibly exude
    and I'm tired, Keren. I'm tired!" He saw the hurt in her expression as she
    turned away. He walked in front of her. "You're so selfish, always thinking
    about you. I'm taking the promotion and the ship because there's a reason
    it's been offered to me. Remember, I was offered the chief engineer post on
    that ship a year ago and I turned it down. Now I'm being given a chance to
    be that ship's captain. This is for a reason. God's giving me a second
    chance and I'm taking it."

    "Then you'll have to take it without me because I'm done with this." She
    said through gritted teeth.

    "Oh now honey, I don't think so." He said with anger as he grabbed her
    fist, squeezing it hard as he stared her down. "You took a vow and you said
    'til death do us part' and I'm a man of faith. I won't break my vow and I
    won't let you do it either."

    "You can't force me to do anything I don't want to." Keren replied.

    "Oh, and so you're willing to give up on Nic and Arianna?" His question
    softened Keren as a sadness came over her. He knew he had her. "If you leave
    me you'll be leaving them. You know you can't take care of them on your own. You know without me you'll be living on borrowed time. Want to see how deep your faith runs? Try to leave. I promise you, you'll live to regret that
    decision."

    She raised her head in defiance and jerked her hand away, tears streaming
    down her cheeks, her jaw set and trembling in anger. "Marrying you was the
    biggest mistake of my life."

    "Loving you was the biggest mistake of mine." He countered, leaning
    against the wall. "We'll need to pack tonight. We have to catch the next
    transport to Deep Space Nine in the morning. You'd better prepare your
    kids."
