    Re: U.S.S Alliance


    I was thinking of a couple of ideas for a new R.P.G.

    "Star Trek: Rebel Fleet"

    Concept One:

    Having successfully evaded capture by either the Jem Hadar or Starfleet & extradition, these former guests of The Coalition of Non Aligned Worlds, have returned & they are P----d.

    Having laid low to recover & rebuild just beneath the nose of the Syndicate, the Maquis have emmerged from exile to preserve the sovereignty of all liberated worlds from ever having to reconcile with any of the major powers.

    "Star Trek: Rebel Fleet"

    Concept Two:

    A small battle group traveling back to Utopia Planetia for repairs gets caught up in a snafu of the Temporal Cold War.

    Three ships are nudged a handful of years into one of many possible futures with no way "home", by a shockwave ripple from a destroyed [classified] research facility whom had been building & testing a "Gemini Device" for a prototype Premonition-Class starship.

    The accident that destroyed the testing facility echoed the one that cloned Captain Will Riker of the U.S.S. Titan.

    The shockwave shifted three unsuspecting vessels a handful of years ahead into a future both familiar & utterly alien to the crew of these lonely vessels.

    In example, The Borg are no longer Starfleet's sworn enemy...they're charter-members of The United Federation of Planets.

    Which would you rather see:

    Concept One or Concept Two?

    Endevour. So much can be said with one word. On a Concorde Class starship, named Endevour, we Endevour for a cure to a disease that could devastate the entire Federation, on a mission we must not fail at.

    We head off into the semi-unknown, the Delta quadrant, where friends and enemies have already been made. We will likely do the same.

    This is still the strange old Endevour, with it's odd happenings and strange relationships. As always, if it is strange and it blindsides you on 'some idle afternoon', you know the Endevour is quite near.

    Come join us on our quest of Deliverance….not from enslavement or that type of thing, but deliverance from a disease that befuddles the best minds of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

    "After the Dominion War, and the return of the USS Voyager, Starfleet sees reason to begin building up their military forces once more. The successful Prometheus Project yields hope for the Federation as more of the class is put into service. Among these, the USS Sequoyah, sent abroad throughout the Federation, keeping the peace, whether it be relieving colonies from natural disaster, studying the newest discovery or averting galactic war, the Sequoyah and her crew are always on the front lines. Will they survive all that the Milky Way can throw at them? Find out in the evergoing mission, Star Trek: Sequoyah."

    The USS Sequoyah is a newly commissioned Prometheus Class vessel. We're a new RPG, just starting out, and have had a little trouble finding crew. We have detailed specs and a well-treknology versed command team to make for good, detailed posts to really get into the finer workings of the ship.

    We also have a varied crew for exciting player interaction and character devlopment, although very small, our members are currently playing multiple characters. We have a large, specific manifest, and a detailed training to get you prepared for Play-By-Email RPGs.

    We're detailed and specific enough to seem like a large fleet, but small enough to take tender care of every member, and see our crew through exciting missions and detailed posts.

    We include our own version of the Academy, complete with a list of in-game majors to choose from (strictly in-game, for enhancement of the detail, and to help the command team better place you onboard.)

    Novel format is prefered, but script is also welcome. Check out our site.

    We also have a reference site complete with an Academy Enrollment Form.

    13 YEARS ON

    Cast your minds back to that first ship you ever served on as a roleplayer/writer. I sure you can all remember it. I know I can, and I'm hoping to create as many fond memories for players, as that first ship ever gave me.

    Hi. My name is Zack, and I've been playing in rpg's for several years. I've always been either at the helm of the ship, or deep in it's mechanical bowels, but for a long time, I have longed to captain my own vessel, in an era that has not yet been covered by trek lore.

    Thus the USS Echo was born. I'm looking for players interested in crewing a ship 13 years forward from Trek cannon in the year 2392. Most positions are available, with only Captain (myself) and our CMO position taken. Civilian characters as well as Starfleet personell are more than welcome, and I'm also hoping to recruit some decent flyboys to command Alpha, beta, gamma and delta flights, our fighter wings.

    What follows is the blurb for the game. If you're interested, check out the website at:


    or alternatively, drop me an email at:


    Here's the blurb....

    The year is 2392. Three years ago, the Klingons launched an unprovoked attack on the Romulan Empire, breaking five years of peace in the Alpha and Beta quadrants. The Federation, who had a peace treaty with both civilisations, sided with the besieged Romulans. Ater a year of bloody conflict, the Klingon people rose up and deposed their Chancellor, Kre'tash. When a new Chancellor, Worf Son Of Mogh, was elected, it was discovered that Kre'tash had in fact been a puppet of a seperatist movement seeking a return to the glorious days of the Romulan Empire. The Federation were quick to switch sides once the truth was revealed, and aided the Klingons in driving the Romulans back.

    Now, an uneasy peace has returned to the quadrants. The neutral zone has been refomed, and Federation ships once again patrol its borders.

    The USS Echo NCC-76678, an Akira class starship sits in a cradle at the Utopia Planetia ship yards. Her battle damage has been repaired and she has just undergone a major refit. Now she has been assigned a new crew and a new captain. What awaits her in the future is yet to be discovered. The story of The USS Echo and her crew is yet to be written in the stars that lie ahead.

    Out there, thataway
    In uncharted territory, adventure awaits!!

    The Gamma Quadrant, a sector that has not been explored. A bold new frontier where adventure is just around the corner. When a Starfleet ship and crew is taken hostage by the Zantharians, a race which we know little about, it's up to the bold crew of the U.S.S. Galaxy to assist in the rescue of Starfleet's finest.

    It is a dark time for the Federation. Starfleet is spread thin due to the threat presented by both the T'saz & the Zantharians. In order to get more ships into the fleet, Starfleet has re-commmissioned several older vessels. The U.S.S. Galaxy NX-70637 the prototype of her class, now under the command of Captain J.D. Bartlet.

    Open Positions:
    Second Officer (may serve in another position)
    Chief Helm Officer
    Chief of Operations
    Chief of Strategic Operations
    Hazard Team Leader
    Asst. Chief Science Officer
    Asst. Chief Engineer
    Asst. Chief Medical Officer
    Asst. Chief of Security/Tactical

    Join the U.S.S. Galaxy where adventure awaits for those who show up.

    To apply send a bio along with your simming experience to Captain Bartlet at: admiral_mick@yahoo.com or apply at our group site: groups.yahoo.com/group/AFSG_Galaxy

    Distant Horizons

    You have heard it all. You have seen it all. So I will not annoy you with more of the same.

    Star Trek: Distant Horizons has been going strong for over a year and we are about to open a new ship, so lots of positions open. Even if you are not interested, at least check out our new website so that our WebMaster (Mistress actually) doesn't think she did all of the work for nothing.

    Re: XO Position Posting

    Maybe you should reserve such comments untill having actually looked over the records and archives of such a simm.

    and possibly stop useing snide comments to promote your own simm at the cost of others, as if thats your tack, it shows a startling lack of originality.

    For honour and glory!

    Hey all of you,

    I'm thinking of settin up a klingon RPG (working on the website at the
    moment) and was wondering if anyones interested in any of the position
    or helping it get going.

    I'm thinking of having it set in the post nemesis universe (not long
    after) and possibly have it set ina time when the klingons are
    beggining to crumble after the war and the lack of decent leadership
    (assume Martok/worf are no longer incharge)

    Well if anyones interested drop me an e-mail at


    Look forward to hearing from you

    Re: XO Position Posting

    I must have missed something here. Thank you Tiffany if you deleted something that was defaming. The fleet, I assure you, is a strong and unique one - one of the only truly democratic fleets on the web ;-). The position of XO on the Washington is still open if anyone in still interested.

    Far Point Fleet

    Far Point Fleet

    “We are alone…We stand unafraid, staring into the darkness of the unknown and find in our hearts courage instead of fear. We are the men and women of Far Point Fleet. We are charged with establishing a strong Federation presence here, so far from Sector 001…And we will succeed.” ~ Fleet Admiral James “Rook” Mirtoh

    Based out of Starbase 25, precariously positioned far from known space, Far Point Fleet stands ready to meet the challenges that come from being so far from home.

    Assignment to Far Point Fleet is considered the most dangerous and exciting post that Starfleet has to offer since the potential for excitement is greater here than anywhere else in the known universe.

    Do you have what it takes to explore the great unknown? Do you have what it takes to work so far from support and protection? If you do, then come and join us. We are FAR POINT FLEET. Application for Far Point Fleet

    12th EDF - The Angry Apes

    The Federation lies devastated by the Borg Wars that lasted nearly twenty years. Victory has come, yet at a great price. The fate of much of the Alpha Quadrant is unknown, and now little remains of the once-grand Federation and its Starfleet beyond the Sol System. Re-exploration attempts try to discover the fate of former allies and enemies alike, but the galaxy will never be the same again. There are many new threats, even with the war over; pirates, remnants of the Borg, the new, emotional and dangerous Vulcans that have forsaken their former ways of peace and control. Many forces remain which still perceive Earth as a grand prize, and after twenty years, Earth is no longer the bastion of strength that it once was. Sol is vulnerable to outside attacks, and the resources of the fledgling returning Federation so stretched that defences are limited.

    Enter the Earth Defence Force, and more specifically, the 12th starfighter squadron, better known as "The Angry Apes". Operating out of Mars and making the USS Thunderchild their home, they are a rapid response unit to deal with sudden threats that may emerge. Led by Commander Joseph Ryan, a veteran of the Borg Wars and one of the few truly experienced pilots left, it is the duty of the Apes to be the first to deal with any dangers to the Federation's heart that could arise.

    But the Federation has changed, and not just physically. After twenty years of war, the shining utopian ideals have faded, and cynicism has settled in to the higher echelons of Starfleet Command and the Federation Council. No longer is the aspiration to explore new life and new civilisations the driving force behind humanity, but rather, survival by any means. And this will include abandoning the principles upon which the Federation was once founded in order to ensure her continued survival. A quick, violent explosion is now thought to be better than a long, diplomatic talk.

    There are those who argue bitterly with the new path the Federation has taken, still clinging to the old ideals of days gone by. Starfleet Command see the Apes as symbols to display the efficacity of the new school of thought as much as a line of defence. The media has seized Ryan as a hero and fight to build him into something he is not. Conflict is within the Federation as much as it is without. Will the old, honourable ideals win over the new, cynical desire for survival? Will politics for power undermine a mission for protection? And, at the heart of the matter, will the threats from outside truly finish off the struggling Federation?

    12th EDF Squadron and the USS Thunderchuld is a PBF game in Bravo Fleet's Futility's End. We are accepting many positions, from pilots of the Apes to the crew of the Thunderchild. The aim is for a solid, character-based game in a gritty Trek universe facing moral quandraries, political power-games, and personal conflict as much - perhaps more - than action and adventure. So take a look at our website, and join today!

    2001 - 2016

    The unthinkable has happened and life may never be the same again. Earlier this month a group of unidentified starships entered the CoreWorlds. The mysterious visitors came quietly and ignored any attempts at communication. A combined fleet met with them, but the never expected what came next. One by one additional ships decloaked nearby and started an assault against the gathered ships. They were able to pierce the blockade with their superior numbers, and the war for Earth began.

    The enemy forces were stronger than we had ever expected. A combined fleet of Federation forces led by the Enterprise engaged the enemy in orbit of our tattered homeland. Over a thousand Federation ships engaged the enemy fleet, but they were still outnumbered. Our own ships started to buckle under the combined onslaught of the enemy vessels. Slowly though the enemy started to give ground. Our ships were able to destroy their defensive perimeter and we made it back to Earth. The Federation forces were able to drive back what was left of the enemy fleet and expel them from our territory.

    But it was a bittersweet victory. The remains of the Federation Starfleet now hang in orbit of Earth, and the numbers are not very impressive. Only around 100 ships remain out of a group once numbering in the thousands. Millions are injured both on Earth and in the Fleet, and thousands have already lost their lives. Fear has swept through the worlds of the Federation, and this fear is overriding. Worlds have seceded, and others are threatening the same out of fear they won’t be protected. Throughout the Federation decorated personnel (engineers, military, scientists) are resigning from their posts to return to their own worlds in terror of what may happen next.

    The Federation’s Defensive Ministry is also been overcome with fear over the unknown enemies. Resulting they have issued orders for the creation of a new group tasked with defense of the core worlds, they‘re also going to have to seek out the people that committed this atrocity. This mission isn’t for the faint of heart, and danger is going to be their constant companion. I have issued a call for men and women interested in this dangerous mission, and I hope that someone will heed my call.

    Project Homeland Defender is a PBEM RPG Game set in the future of the Star Trek Universe. Following the exploits of the personnel of this Project (the crew of station Defender 1 and the USS Defiant), this group will be darker and more character oriented than most RPG games. We are not a fleet RPG group, nor are we planning to be a Fleet. All of our stories are played on the same group and the stories are all interconnected. We hope that you will join us in our adventures.

    Project Homeland Defender can be found online at
