Star Trek: Borderlands formed in 1993 and has been actively roleplaying for 25 years. Star Trek represents a rich backdrop with over five hundred hours of television and feature films and hundreds of novels. Players take on the role of characters in the story and write incrementally, building on the work of other players.
Star Trek: Borderlands is large enough to support multiple stations and ships (ie. duty stations) that collaborate to create a broad tapestry of stories. In addition to Starfleet duty stations, players may board ships of the Delta Freedom Alliance or Romulan Star Empire. Seiklon Axel is, unique amongst Star Trek simulations, a civilian ship.
The spirit of the Federation had been lost... but there were those who swore that it would be regained. In 2401, two Starfleet officers rebelled. The rebel cause quickly gained a devoted following. Time passed, and the rebel cause grew, attracting those who were dissatisfied with the Federation. With war knocking on the Federation doorstep, a hand of friendship was extended to the rebels. But not by the Federation- by Devu II, a planet who had decided that their goals no longer squared with it's former Federation protectors. On Stardate 2406.5.17, an historic pact was struck between Devu and the rebels... and the Delta Freedom Alliance was born.
As the Flagship of the Delta Quadrant, Discovery was designed with the specific intent of furthering exploration in the Federation's newest frontier. The vessel represents all of the speed, power, and versatility of modern starship design. Being armed with the latest Starfleet technology, Discovery can tackle nearly any mission while operating independently, far in the frontier regions of the Federation's Delta Quadrant territories.
Nestled in that precarious portion of space that comprises the Neutral Zone, Starbase Horizon stands at the edge of major change in the Delta Quadrant. A shining light of progress it inhabits the space above Devu I and Devu II, protecting the sector and furthering the goals of the Prime Directive.
The SES S'Task is a d'Deridex-B Class Warbird serving the Romulan Empire. Named after the student of Surak, the first leader of the Romulan race, the S'Task holds great value for all Romulans everywhere. The S'Task's main duty is to patrol the Delta Quadrant while trying to hold diplomatic ties with their fairly new Federation allies. This is not always easy as disagreements between the Empire and the Federation occur.
Seiklon Axel is about civilians, not Starfleet personnel. Here you'll live a different kind of life. It's rough, it's tough, and the Prime Directive definitely doesn't apply!
The first Starfleet vessel to cross into the Delta Quadrant via the Geroch Wormhole. The Hope One Dyson Sphere was discovered by it's chief scientist, Dr. Shun'de Gor'Vosh II.
The USS Marcus, a science vessel formerly attached to Starbase Phoenix, has been tasked with exploring a region of space where several ships have recently come up missing with no explanation. The area has already been dubbed the Delta Triangle.
The Delta Triangle is an inexact zone located within DFA territory, but close to both Romulan and Federation interests. As such, a treaty has been signed allowing for a detailed study of the zone by all interested parties aboard this one ship. This is a first-of-it's-kind joint venture.
Starbase Phoenix is a significant military, political and trading hub of the Delta Quadrant. You can play a Starfleet or Delta Freedom Alliance officer, an ambassador, a shop owner, etc.; you decide! With such a diverse group of players and characters, we have very exciting adventures and stories playing.
During renewed conflict between the United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Star Empire, USS Olmstead was a ship of peacemaking. Named in honour of US Army Captain Andy Olmstead.
