- Five Time Emma Award Winner for Best Starbase/Outpost!
- Outpost 42 is located in the Gamma Tiltium star system, orbiting the class M planet Gamma Tiltium IV. Near Romulan space, it was originally constructed as a defense base against this hostile power. In the years since the Dominion War, however, it had been the site of increased civilian traffic, the effect of the lasting cool, but peaceful relations between the Federation and Romulan Star Empire.
In 2387, disaster struck, far across the border. A supernova - somehow combined with unforeseen and unexplained subspace phenomena - destroyed Romulus and Remus, ripping the heart out of the Romulan Empire. The Romulans, the Federation, Outpost 42 itself - all were woefully unprepared for the sudden tragedy.
Now, lacking commerce and traffic from either side of the border, Outpost 42's civilian and mining facilities lay fallow - havens for the disillusioned, the downtrodden, and those who would prefer to stay in the dark.
Factions rise from the ashes of the Star Empire - some friendly, with an open hand extended to the Federation, seeking friendship and aid... others less so, acting only with closed fists, seeking to forge a new Empire, violently opposing the Federation's 'meddling.'
Starfleet Command recently opted to promote an ambitious new captain to oversee the station's operations and continue the renovation to bring it up to Starfleet's current standards. As the Outpost itself gradually transforms from a rickety old station to a cutting edge facility, will it also transform back into the commerce hub it once was as well? Or will rogue factions from the nearby territories of the Romulans and Klingons hinder the development of both the Outpost and the region? Will the Romulans accept the Federation's aid to reconstruct their empire? Or will they drive Starfleet from their presence on the edge of their borders?
One other question looms: What part will you play?

I must say we have a stellar group of writers here and a roleplaying quality well worth the "best ship" nomination that the outpost sometimes receives in the STF Awards.

Don't hesitate to contact me using the contact form if there's anything you'd like to discuss.
