“…wow! I’m amazed at the work and dedication. It’s work like this that makes us proud. The best Trek is character driven, and you guys are all over that!” Be sure and check out their site. SB400 is busy having a great time! -Doug Drexler 7/10/16
It’s the year 2393, Romulus and Remas are no more and the Enterprise-E has been decommissioned. The Cardassians are allied with the Federation/Klingon Alliance, there’s peace with the Dominion, and there’s a ‘cold war’ with the Romulans and the rest of the Typhon Pact. It’s a time of change for the Federation and the rest of the Galaxy. Starbase 400 is a Spacedock type station orbiting Kaleb IV in Beta Quadrant, which sits close to Klingon, Romulan, Gorn, Tholian, and Krazzle territories as well as open space and the unclaimed ‘Triangle’, home to pirates and criminals.
Starbase 400 has become key to the Federation’s future. She’s the Flag Base for a major section of the Beta Quadrant call the ‘Ares Operational Theater’ and is home to a variety of Support ships. Classes include; Galaxy Refit, Defiant, Intrepid, Sovereign, Ronin, Akira, Prometheus, Nova, Nebula, Ambassador, Excelsior, Steamrunner, Diligent, Constitution, Saber, Olympic, Gladiator, Centaur, Interceptor, and Luna! The crew is assigned to a wide variety of mission types including Exploration, Science, Federation Defense, Combat, Covert Operations, Intelligence Gathering, Emergency Response, and much more.
Starbase 400 is a fast paced, active sim that has developed a vast back-story, complete with two dozen permanent NPCs, a fleet of ships, and a dangerous intersection of space to defend. To support its in character universe, Starbase 400 maintains an academy, a database, a timeline of sim canon, and logs of each mission to ensure members are informed. Infused with a focus on character development and realistic storytelling, these factors combine, producing an intensely vibrant sim.
On Starbase 400, we focus on character development and realistic storytelling.
