Welcome to the Antares NX-11!

Antares (NX-11) is a Star Trek Collaborative Writing Group that takes place in an Alternate Universe where the Federation was not formed. Earth’s relationship with the Vulcans took a serious downturn when the Vulcan High Command requested that the Warp 5 Program should be terminated after an unfortunate accident in which the Paraagan mining colony, Paraagan II, was destroyed. Earth, deciding to defy the advice of Vulcan, continued with the program. With the Vulcans no longer involved, this left an opening for the Andorians and Vissians to partner with Earth and guide them in their exploration of the galaxy.


Our sim takes place in the year of 2160 and is based aboard the NX Type vessel Antares, under the command of Captain Annett Matthews. Currently, the Antares is tasked with law enforcement, rescue, and rapid response to emergencies concerning the United Earth. The Antares was built with an extra deck and modular space for additional passengers and to support missions they respond to.


Our unique timeline and canon is known to the crew as "EagleVerse" (named for the first sim in the universe) and part of United Earth Starfleet. All information contained within our database has been deemed by the Game Master to be official Antares canon.For more information please browse our database, contact us via our main website, or discord server.

Annett paced back and forth in her office sipping from her coffee mug, "enter," she called when the chime rang. She didn't bother to look to see who it was but moved to her armchair in the sitting area.
