Welcome to the official website of Shadow Fleet, the premier forum-based Star Trek Startrek Roleplay!

Shadow Fleet is a professionally run Star Trek roleplay set in the year 2393 (six years after the Hobus supernova). Our fleet is made up of players from a variety of different backgrounds, who have come together to contribute their own unique point-of-view to a storyline in one of our four SIMMs.

What is Star Trek roleplaying?

Ever wanted to be in Starfleet, at the helm of a starship or even try out the captain's chair? Shadow Fleet roleplay allows you to do just that in a structured and supportive environment. The roleplaying takes place on our forum in the form of written posts made on 'mission threads' within a ship (SIMM) sub-forum. Each unique individual adds little pieces to the story as they react to the environment and other players ensuring every mission is different with unpredictable results. Written roleplaying is the ultimate form of creative expression and to top it all off, it's in the Star Trek universe.

Active and Large Community!

Tired of waiting days for a reply to your mission post? Is your roleplay suffering from inactivity? We typically have anywhere from 100-200+ new posts everyday from our 40+ strong player count! Player and ship activity levels are constantly monitored to ensure a quality experience is had by all. The forum has been in operation since 2007 and has gained popularity year after year! Today, we are at the highest activity levels in our history and the quality of our roleplayers is second to none.

Authentic Chain of Command and Character Development!.

We are a very structured roleplay with rules and regulations that are there to ensure a positive roleplaying experience is had by all. During your time as a crewmember on one of our SIMMs, you will be able to grow and expand your character in many ways, including the opportunity to progress through the Starfleet rank structure with the promise of real ribbons and rewards for outstanding effort and positive contribution. The very best players will even make it to Command Level Officer status and take command of a SIMM, leading the players beneath them, not just in-character, but also from an out-of-character perspective.

Make Friends and Socialise!

The one thing that distinguishes us from other Roleplays would be the community we have created. With all of our SIMMs contained on one forum, our members are free to interact with everyone in the fleet on some level. By having this type of organization, it is also easier to transfer players between ships allowing our members to experience different ship classes, posting styles and command types. This sets the stage for unparalleled character development and allows our members to create lasting memories and friendships that cannot occur anywhere else.
