Welcome to Starbase Prime

Welcome to the edge of known space.



Starbase Prime, the newly reconstructed Immense-class space-station on the far side of the galaxy.

It's been only a few short years since the collapse of the Borg collective and the capture of a stable warp gate linking the Alpha Quadrant with the Delta quadrant. Unlike the long gone Borg Transwarp network this one gate works all on it's own, allowing ships to travel near instantly across the galaxy.

Now, on the edge of known space, Starbase Prime stands as the first and perhaps most valuable starbase in the vast Delta Quadrant. And perhaps more importantly the station stands as a beacon of hope and law in the power vacuum left after the fall of the Borg.

Starbase Prime is a NOVA based Roll Playing Simulation game set in the world of Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry.

Our focus is on the characters and how they fit in the story, from the day to day to the extreme moments when the heat is on.

Have a look around the site and the station. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you aboard as one of us.

Hello,

This is your Captain speaking. Unfortunately I had to let Redd go. I have no time for time wasters. If you are in this sim and I don't hear from you in the form of a log in the next two days. I am going to drop you.

Deborah I need to see some progress on the intel mission that I gave you please. And the rest of us already know what we are working on, so lets get her done.

» Death of a Legend

Posted on Sat Feb 28th, 2015 @ 8:45am by Captain Travis Morgan in Out of Character

Death effects us all in different ways. Lately I have had my fill of it. And just when you think you are prepared and have had enough, the flood gates open and you get more than you thought possible. You all now know about the death of our beloved Spock - Lenard Nimoy.

Well I for one feel like I have lost a member of my family. My prayers go out to his Earthly Family and to the Crew of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701. The beginning of an amazing run for an amazing man. Close your eyes and listen to the sound track from the original season and think of all the wonderful joy that Spock as a Character and Lenard as a man and artist brought us. Talk about a day that will live on forever, This is just such a day. But more over, the life of a man that will never ever be forgotten.

Rest in Peace Mr Spock, for you will never be forgotten.

» Answers to questions asked

Posted on Thu Sep 18th, 2014 @ 8:10am by Lieutenant Commander Shiarrael 'Shia' LaPota in General News

Questions of the day (asked by Sky Frost):

1) how many star fleet personnel are on this station?

Standard Compliment for an Immense-class starbase:
Officers: 375
Enlisted: 2700
Marines: 200

Starbase Prime has more than standard compliment in Marines and (Marine and Starfleet Naval) starfighter pilots, along with crews of attached starships, such as the Brazen-class USS Ronin. Some key positions are currently vacant, tell your friends!


2) how many non-fleet personnel are on this station?

Standard Compliment for an Immense-class starbase:
Civilians: Up to 6500

Starbase Prime hasn't maxed out on its civilian complement yet, but more are arriving every day. Take a stroll through the Promenade and see the sights! And do some shopping. And eat lunch, too.


3) is the station stationary or does it have warp capability?

Starbase Prime is nominally stationary, but it does have thrusters for limited mobility if necessary. The Acting XO is an experienced engineer and knows how to modify the station's warp power system to propel the starbase at very low warp, say about 1.3 max. Stopping can be difficult, but if you go to the trouble of jury-rigging things to make a starbase warp capable, you're usually in dire need of outrunning someone or something!


4) is the station in orbit around a star and/or are there any planets nearby?

No and no, but there is a stable wormhole nearby, which is why Starbase Prime is where it is.


5) is the station used as a trade transit hub between locals here and the federation?

Yes, besides guarding the wormhole, diplomacy and trade are its primary reasons for being here.


6) is there a primary culture/race resident near the stations location?

There are several races in numerous systems within relatively easy reach of a high warp capable starship, including a system controlled by the Hirogen. In addition, Mantis One will be the site of a fledgling Federation colony where farmers will grow food, which is in short supply in this sector. Even the Hirogen grow their own food, using 'lesser prey' as slave labor, of course.

Pity the Arcolians, who are excellent farmers but chafe under harsh Hirogen taskmasters. If only someone could liberate them... Unfortunately, the USS Ronin is on a purely scientific mission at the moment and any rumors of an imminent Arcolian rescue attempt should be considered strictly wild rumor only and not to be given any credence whatsoever.


Remember, the only stupid questions are the ones that should be asked, but aren't! Special thanks to Sky Frost for his good questions!
