  3. NEBULA BOUNDARY, GAMMA QUADRANT — After answering a cry for help, the USS Thor (NCC-82607) has found itself embroiled in a deep-space rescue with a previously undiscovered, technologically advanced species known as the Zet. This highly unusual species developed within the dense layers of an energetic nebula, effectively isolating their system of planets from the larger galaxy until now. Their vessel, the ‘Endless Golden Penetrator,’ found itself trapped within the nebula’s edge as it tried and failed to explore beyond known Zet space. Fortunately for the Zet, the USS Thor was completing a re
  4. The Federation News Service is a spinoff of the StarBase 118 Star Trek PBEM RPG, reporting news headlines from across the United Federation of Planets to Federation citizens, along with other reader-submitted stories from other RPGs and fan works. Here are the latest stories published by the FNS: Scandal as Matteo Barana leaves Trinity City Eagles – Stardate 239802.06 BETA ANTARES IV — The Trinity City Eagles have cut off talks to re-sign Matteo Barana, their former star Centre. Fire on Haldon IV Engulfs Forest– Stardate 239802.12 HALDON IV — A devastating forest fire on the rural world of
  5. THETA 122 — With peace on the horizon between the Sheliak Corporate and the Federation, the USS Arrow (NCC-69829) contended with a Sheliak vessel that fired on Theta 122 without provocation. “Evacuations are underway, but there is too much interference in the atmosphere for transporters to operate,” said Crewman Second Class Harry Thomelson, while performing emergency maintenance to fix the problem he spoke of. “Using the shuttles is not an option either, our best bet is to work out a truce.” Immediately proceeding this attack, the crew detected a strange and highly unusual energy emission f
  6. Love is in the air since Valentine’s Day, everywhere we look around, and over the vast years since it first aired, this space opera in our hearts has given us plenty of on-screen love to wrap our hearts around. Everyone has their favourite relationship from the series, whether it was Jean-Luc and Beverly who stole your breath away, or you’re a niche fan of Archer and Riaan rooting for them, somewhere along the line Star Trek has pulled on your heartstrings and warmed you up with the smouldering passions displayed. In First Contact, we’re given a glimpse into Data’s longing for a relationsh
  7. DONOVA IV — Supporters of Maria Chicchoni interrupted Battle of the Bands preparations to protest Gorgeous George’s treatment of exotic animals. The Donova IV convention centre was awash with Starfleet personnel over the weekend: the USS Veritas (NCC-95035) offered their services to help with preparations. To the ire of government officials, organiser Sokarn zh’Kuujn accepted their offer. But as the Veritas practise band, comprising Antero Flynn, Hannibal Parker, Charlena Vanlith, Ikaia Wong, and Callistra Navarro concluded their practice on-stage, chaos erupted. A crowd of protestors equipp
  8. The Chat Team is responsible for running several Chat-orientated events, notably the Fleetwide OOC Chat and Fleetwide Watch-a-Longs. Today we meet with the Chat Team Facilitator Lt. Commander Serala so we can learn more about this important part of our community! Taybrim: Thank you for joining us. Can you please start by giving us a short overview on the Chat Team and how it supports our StarBase 118 community? Serala: The main purpose of the team is to organize, coordinate and moderate the monthly Fleetwide OOC Chat, where we go around the fleet and see what amazing and awesome things ea
  9. We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border. This month’s interview is with the writer behind Ensign Ikaia Wong playing a Klingon male medical officer assigned to the USS Veritas. Taybrim: Tell us a little about the writer behind the character — where in the world do you hail from? Wong:
  10. STARBASE 118 Ops — With the antidote for the “Love Potion” affecting almost half of the attendees at the Gratitude Festival finally distributed, the crew of Starbase 118 Ops took time for shore leave, conscious of the long-term impact the tainted drinks will have. “At first, I thought I was just giddy, intoxicated,” stated Lt Prudence Blackwell when asked what the effects of the drink had upon her. “I know my type of drunk and that wasn’t it.” “Aye, the Festival was grand. Although it was a little more Risian than Bajoran in places.” LtCmdr Arturo Maxwell laughed, lending his unique perspect

  12. Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in January. This first graph depicts the number of applications that the fleet has received each month of the current year. The month of January saw eight new applications, which shows a slight decrease from December of 2020. The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application, with Google Search leading the way: These final graphs show how many people graduated from the Acad
  13. STARBASE 104 — Following an eventful shore leave on Endaasi, the USS Constitution (NCC-9012-B) docks for the development and installation of upgrades to facilitate equality of access. Upgrades included an experimental sensor system designed to reduce gravimetric interference. Engineers traced an issue with the impulse engines to a faulty driver coil assembly, requiring replacement of the entire assembly. The arrival on the ship of two new Ensigns — Ens. Tagia Jutto, Ariolo, and Ens. Sirn, a particularly tall Vulcan — the staff undertook a project to improve the ergonomics of the bridge works
  14. Lieutenant Reginald Barclay aka “Reg” is a fan favorite in Star Trek. Brought to life by the talented actor Dwight Schultz, this character diverged from many others in the cast. He was a character with obvious flaws. He was nervous and unsure of his own abilities. He exhibited phobias and concerns about social situations. We learn a lot about the man when Reg tells LaForge, “I mean I am the guy who writes down things to remember to say when there is a party. And then when he finally gets there, he winds up alone, in the corner, trying to look … comfortable examining a potted plant.” Introdu
  15. PAR’THA EXPANSE — With the conclusion of a routine mapping mission and a successful, if strange, First Contact, the USS Chin’toka (NCC-97187) heads for the Uncharted Regions on a mission of exploration. The unexpected first contact situation reported on the Chin’toka has introduced both the crew and the Federation at large to a new species of energy based entities. These ephemeral beings, whom we had previously reported, contacted the ship’s Assistant Chief Medical Officer, LtJG Dr. Elizabeth Snow, made their presence known to the entire senior staff during a New Year’s celebration. Upon c
  16. Dear Kr’Abby, I’m really starting to get into Captain Marisol Adventures, the book series (not those terrible knock-off holonovels). It’s starting to impact my work. How can I better balance my time and my relaxation so that I don’t cause problems for everyone? Also, do you read them because they are the best. Sincerely, #1 Marisol Fan Dear #1 Fan, Ah, the simple joys of reading about far away places and fantastic adventures! While I might personally believe that Captain Marisol would do better with a Bat’leth strapped to her back and a battle targ at her side, there is a pastoral sense o
  17. MA NO UMI — Reports coming in suggest the crew of the USS Gorkon (NCC-82293) has escaped into Ma no Umi following a celebrity sighting, an explosion, and winning a race in the underground pirate poles. Events are unclear at present, however, the scarce information from the Orion Syndicate asteroid known as Nassau in the Ma no Umi sector has led the FNS to piece together a report. Down in the dockyard of Mares de Oro, Captain Marisol of the famous novel series “Captain Marisol Adventures” appeared to greet fans as she disembarked from her vessel. Captain Marisol, the pseudonym of one Lt. Co

  20. CELENDI NEBULA — Returning from a time portal inside the nebula, the crew of the USS Resolution (NCC-78145) bring back their crew and those from several other vessels, including the missing Andalucia. The Resolution returned to our time but a few days ago, having travelled hundreds of thousands of years into the future in their search for the missing freighter, the Andalucia. A race known in the future as the Sau, a species that does not exist in our time, had been manipulating the nebula to ensnare ships from the present and captured their crews to use as slave labour. Fortunately, the ship’
  21. Join us for a special interview in our series of interviews with winners of awards from our recent 2020 Awards Ceremony. The Elinor of Kanist Order of Excellence is a new award for 2020 that recognizes those who have served the fleet as a staff member for at least 5 years, attained the rank of Rear Admiral or higher, previously been awarded the Picard Award and Staff Member of the Year Award, and continue to serve the fleet to the betterment of all members. This is the highest staff honor, celebrating longevity, dedication to the fleet, and the perseverance for wearing the Admiral’s belt. Las
  22. Rewards for a job well done are always fun and exciting to receive after a successfully completed mission. In Starbase 118, there are a variety of ribbons given out to recognize in-character achievements, but none of the ribbons reflected service related to undercover work and intelligence missions – until now. Adding to the ever-growing list of service ribbons available for in-character commendation, we can now count the Intelligence Star among their number. This is the first service ribbon available to those characters who work in covert operations in order to serve the interests and pr
  23. One of the big things that Trek loves to do, and probably one thing I enjoy most about the shows, is that they drop in historical events like candies to be picked up and chewed on. Most of them are, unfortunately, wars, but many have led to fascinating diplomatic situations. And the overwhelming majority of them are only mentioned in passing, and it is left to others to extrapolate or hypothesise what these events might have been about, how they came about or how they finished. How might they be expounded upon? Perhaps in a time-travel episode (or two-parter, because who doesn’t love those?
  24. AAVARO WILDS — Preparation made for exciting results, as the USS Juneau (NX-99801) continues exploring the Aavaro Wilds. When the USS Eagle (NCC-74659), later replaced by the Juneau, originally arrived in the area, it sent several probes out into the reaches of the region to better prepare them for what they may encounter. One of those probes paid dividends already as the crew of the Juneau received data leading them to investigate a unique sight in this remote corner of the galaxy. As they approached the location recorded by the probe, the Juneau stared into a black hole. On closer inspecti
  25. We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border. This month’s interview is with the writer behind Ensign Tan playing a joined Trill male security/tactical officer assigned to the USS Gorkon. Taybrim: Tell us a little about the writer behind the character — where in the world do you hail from?
