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!

After their meeting with T'San the couple went their separate ways to check in with their respective departments.

The door closed on the heels of the Strategic Operations Officer and slid open again a few moments later.

Thomas walked off the lift, and into the corridor, with Chloe unpacking their things in their quarters, which would take hours, which she insisted of doing on her own, and there was no way in hell, he would talk her out of it. So here he was, walking the starbase,…

Aranis sat at his desk in his office contemplating what had placed him there. Was it Admirals with a notion to shake things up? Was it the Fates that decided he needed another challenge in his life?

Maybe he was lucky, or unlucky depending on how you looked at the…

Creedmore started the program. Light fog, flat ground and a wide path reaching out to a distant faint glow of light. She sighed and pulled black mittens from the pocket of her running suit. A watch cap pulled down over her long grey hair. She stepped out with a brisk…
