Welcome to the Starbase 718!

“If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward” -Martin Luther King Jr-

Positioned in the Delta Sector, Starbase 718 acts as a central point for most of the traffic out of the Romulan Star Empire, or former Empire. Since the Hobus disaster in 2387 there has been much upheaval with territories shifting, new powers emerging and refugee’s attempting to escape and start a new life.

Ten years later in 2397, the new Empire, or Free State as they are now calling themselves aim to shed the ways of their past and start afresh. To show others they are not the secretive race they once were, whereas the Tal Shiar are trying to refill their ranks at any costs and present a strong unwavering front as they have always done.

The Typhon Pact has also heavily impacted the area with the Romulans, the Breen, the Tholians, Gorn and the Tzenkethi banding together against the Federation. This pact is becoming unstable and with that comes instability within the whole region.

Some aggression from the Klingon Empire as they use this to gain new worlds and systems has been noted and Starfleet wishes to present a strong presence to deter any action into Federations space but as always holds the door open for incoming ships seeking ‘assistance’ or ‘resupply’. The Khitomer Accords in limbo at present make the situation tenable at best.

Starbase 718 is within a hotbed of action where the slightest ripple can cause lasting effects within future of the Romulan race, and their relationship with the Klingon’s grow tenser with every passing moment.

In a massive crew shake up Starfleet has selected new individuals to take the lead on this. Hoping that they will provide the glue that holds the area together as all walks of life enter the station, bringing their woes with them.

We are looking for writer who write for the love of creating stories that others love to read. We focus on character development and relationship building over missions, although we will have ones to follow.

Come join us!

A transport docked with the starbase and almost immediately, when the docking port opened. A young Romulan Woman with a Bolian that was in the process of turning green forced her way past the officers. "Whoa! Wait a sec. Both of you have to go through base cust...."

Tolkath slid a finger into the high collar of his dress uniform, adjusting the fit slightly, the third time he had done so since putting it on ten minutes ago.

"Do not fiddle with your uniform" Leasai whispered in Vulcan from beside him. "It looks fully presentable as it is"…

M'Sara was at the Replimat during her lunch break from medical with a plate of General Tso's Chicken from the replicator and a book with the title 'Doctor Zhivago' on it. Engrossed in the boog, she did not notice the Romulan Delegation walking around, and every few minutes, her chopsticks…

"She is a liability, impetuous, ill disciplined, rude and arrogant" Lesai concluded, having recounted the behavior of Rth’than towards the Romulan delegates.

"Lieutenant Rth’than may have single handedly derailed this entire process and set back Federation-Romulan relations that has taken years of work. She is a.. what is the term?…

Dear Diary,

It is interesting. How technology can sometimes compromise you. I've never kept personal logs on the base computer, as I do not trust Starfleet with my inner thoughts.

I don't think I have ever encountered this much hatred for one woman in my entire life. And now the…
