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.

» UES Community Goals Announced

Posted on 14 Mar 2021 @ 3:13pm by Captain Annett Matthews D.Eng. in General News

Members of Starfleet Command have decided that in order to help involve our community in development of the organization and our canon that it would be helpful for our members to know what our plans are. After a discussion of command members we have create a page on the website that lists all of our major development goals for the next year which will be updated each month by Starfleet Command beginning in May 2021. We have decided for simplicity sake to include the rest of March into the goals for April of this year to give us a bit of a head start as we begin to follow our new plan.

These goals include things like official specifications for our NX-Type vessels, the two variants, and for Apollo Base. It also includes plans for expansion to other units to allow for more exciting writing opportunities as well as reviewing and revamping our existing time line to have more content and feel less like a list.

We have some big goals for the year and we are looking for all members at levels who are interested in participating and contributing even to a single idea or database article to please let a member of Starfleet Command know of their interest or visit the #development channel on the discord and start a discussion.

To view our new list of goals please click here or check the Our Community drop-down on the main menu on the UES website.
