Welcome to the USS Proxima!

The year 2389 and the Federation has one again authorized exploration and expansion into the Gamma Quadrant. The recently refit USS Proxima has been ordered back into action and will be key at exploring further into the unknown Gamma Quadrant. The crew of the Proxima will boldly go where no one has gone before and discover the undiscovered.




USS Proxima is a Star Trek role-playing SIM that is played using Nova, a role-playing system developed by Anodyne Productions. The story begins in the year 2389.

Once ruthlessly dominated by the Dominion, the Gamma Quadrant was a place where personal freedoms and the pursuit of personal freedoms was just about unheard of. This all came to a change with the Dominion War. The multi-quadrant war resulted in the loss of hundreds of millions of lives and effectively served to break the Dominion's tight hold in the quadrant.

The instrument of surrender, the Treaty of Bajor, was signed on Deep Space 9 and the Dominion was forced back into the Gamma Quadrant and agreed to the concession of allowing the Federation to begin the exploration of the Quadrant.

In order to protect Federation interests in the sector Starfleet Command authorized the creation of a task force within the Gamma Quadrant. The logical choice Idran was quickly dismissed as it, being the terminus of the Bajoran Wormhole, could serve as a possible point of contention with local powers and claims of unrestricted access to the Alpha Quadrant. Thus, Task Force 9 was born.

Early exploration efforts were uneventful, aside from occasions whence Starfleet vessels and crews found themselves caught between the Dominion and minor Gamma Quadrant powers. Even though the Federation was welcomed by many, others saw the Federation as a threat. In response, The Consortium was slowly created as a measure to expel Starfleet from the Gamma Quadrant. In 2388, the Consortium staged a coup, taking over New Bajor and many powerful Task Force Starships in one fell swoop. Starfleet, with the aid of the Dominion, has removed the Consortium from power and has begun the arduous task of rebuilding the Task Force.
