Welcome to the official website of Shadow Fleet, the premier forum-based Star Trek internet RPG!
Shadow Fleet was established in January of 2007 to bring Star Trek fans together in community discussion as well as quality, professionally managed role-playing. Today, we're a growing internet presence and one of the few RPGs that can offer a friendly, welcoming environment and a place for players to indulge their literary talents with the chance of in-character and out-of-character rewards!
We invite you to take a look around, see what you think and perhaps even consider creating an account on our forum. And if you've got any questions before joining, why not join our Discord Server and connect with the community.
We hope to see you here soon!
The Structure of Our SIMMS:
Each SIMM in the fleet is structured in a similar manner seen in the U.S. Navy, on which Star Trek and Shadow Fleet is primarily based.
At the top of the chain is the Commanding Officer, an experienced player who has graduated from Shadow Fleet's intense Command Officer Training Course (COTC), designed to assess Command Officers on their posting, inter-personal skills and dispute management. S/he is assisted by the First Officer, also a graduate of the COTC.
Beneath them are the Department Heads, each of whom is responsible for the players in their department. Usually holding the rank of Lieutenant or above, Department Heads are considered senior players on a SIMM and the first port of call for any new player in trouble.
Should you decide to join Shadow Fleet, you will be placed in one of our SIMMs. You may begin as a Cadet or a Crewman, and join the Shadow Fleet Academy where you will learn the basics of playing in Shadow Fleet. Once your training course is completed you can begin taking part in missions. Then, there will be ample opportunity for you to progress through the ranks and for you to become a senior officer or even a Command Officer, or progress to where you want to go!
