Join the fight & the Black Fleet SIM on Black Rock!

Fleet Six is the Fleet at the edge of the universe, the Black Fleet. Our home is a black rock and there are many enemies out here that want to take Starfleet out of the equation. But we won't let them, no matter if they are Vren, Breen, Ancients, Elders or the evil mastermind that once wore pips on his collar. Not in the present, not in the past. We stand united in our resolve and although our hearts also have different shades of grey, we won't let the darkness win. Do you want to join the fight?

Description: The Merrimack is not like other Star Fleet ships. We are alt-STF ship set in the TOS-movie era period and there is no Merrimack A, B, C or D! It the oldest and best STF alt-environment ship and things are played a little different. The ship is open only to second character players. It has experienced members and the longest serving Captain. The posting rate is slow to medium fast, but quality counts. This is a time when Warp speeds were slower, when female crew still wore micro-minis as standard uniform and Captains still went on landing parties (never away missions.) A time before Ship's Counsellors or Holodecks. A time when replicators only produced rather dubious looking food dishes. When communicators were located on the corridor walls. When the Klingon Empire was still aggressive if not the enemy and beta Quadrant still seemed a very long way away. Long before anyone had heard of the Borg, or Ferengi, Bajorans or Cardassians. The ship is also 90% Human, although TOS aliens are allowed. You can play a Junior Officer, or your pick of any custom character you can think of - Nurse, Yeoman, Navigator, Helm, Captain's Chef, Ship's Historian, Ship's Physicist, and Transporter Chief.

Description: "Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets has many enemies, both known and obvious, hidden and mysterious. It was for this reason the USS Wolverine crew was assembled, to infiltrate, expose and derail the plans and plots of her enemies Welcome to the darker side of Starfleet. The Wolverine is assigned the missions other crews would hesitate to accept. The crew is the best at what they do, but what they do isn't always very nice. . .nor do they always follow the rules Darker, grittier, where sometimes the lines have to be crossed for the greater good of the Federation. That's life on the Wolverine!!! The Wolverine will accept both new and experienced players. Come and join the grey side!!"
