Tau Lyrae

"May we never find space so vast,
planets so cold, heart and mind so empty
that we cannot fill them with love and warmth."

Our sim is set in 2408 and follows the adventures of the crew of the space station Visek Nor, located in the enigmatic Tau Lyrae system on the edge of the Betreka Nebula. In 2407, the Federation and the Klingon Empire signed an armistice following more than a decade of hostilities that began in 2394. Now returned to their de facto state of a cold war relationship, it remains to be seen whether peace can finally be achieved between the two galactic powers, or whether the cold war will once again burn hot.

Suffering from high war exhaustion, the Federation is focused on recuperating its losses from the war and acquiring allies wherever it may find them. While the Klingons lick their wounds and attempt to stave off an inevitable civil war, the Federation has taken advantage of the situation by supporting factions within the Empire that seek an end to the war.

Visek Nor, an old Nor-class Cardassian space station, is located in the Tau Lyrae, orbiting a mysterious moon where a Starfleet vessel once crashed in 2245. Tau Lyrae is located at a strategic juncture on the edge of the Betreke Nebula between the Cardassian Union and the Klingon Empire. The station, now administered by Starfleet, has become a support base for exploration vessels heading into the poorly surveyed nebula.

If Tau Lyrae itself is any indication of what lies within the rest of the nebula, untold mysteries and adventures await!

The sim is currently closed for recruitment.
