These are the voyages of "The Second Star"



Welcome Image.

Welcome to the Reserve Merchant Fleet!


Federation space has a prolific amount of trade and commerce that leads to every corner of known space. There has become a need for non-Starfleet presence in systems inside federation space but not actively members. The Reserve Merchant Fleet is a newly founded branch of the Federation separate from Starfleet which will allow the Federation and its neighboring non aligned worlds to interact peacefully. Many of these systems fear the overpowered "Ships of the Line" the governments of the Alpha quadrant use to enforce their edicts. Some feel the monolithic fleets of Starfleet, Klingon Empire only serve themselves and leave little for those who wish to remain free from membership.


In the beginning the crew started small, with just a few of them on a freighter called the "Second Star". They have worked together and with other crew coming and going for some time earning a name for themselves. A final mission which promises to pay off well turns out to be a deadly game with special agents poised to kill them in covering their tracks.


While hiding, they find the “Laffitte” in the scrapyard, it opens their lives to so much more. With blood and sweat they rebuild it and employ some legal trickery to keep her flying.

Welcome to Carl, our newest player in the SIM!

He will be playing the dastardly raffscallion Christopher Callahan, a hard edged engineer out to prove his worth. He will find his way to the Second Star, and a bright future.

The site is largely built, but I've made a mess of the rank system so that's one more thing to sort :)

We will be ready to Launch here in a month I think, expect a few more new faces!

Hey Cad, I didn't have much time, but I got the press briefing release, just the summary brief, but it’ll get your primer piece started. Though I’d love to have a credit on the Federation's most hard hitting source for journalism, I’ll settle for a favor ;)

"What's up, grease-monkey!" was the only thing Chris heard before he was accosted with the perpetually bubbly, smiling face of one of the ship's senior comms officers, Alana Torres, as she slid down into the seat across the table from him. With a deep sigh he took another puff…
