Federation's End: An 18+ Age Rated Sim
Once the home to the Frontier Sector's Federation Response Force, Starbase 80 remains activated, now serving as the command center for the now re-organized Starfleet, including the Marines and Corps of Engineers.
The newly organized Frontier Response Force (FRF) is a high readiness and technologically advanced force comprising of engineering, ground, air, space, and special forces units capable of being deployed quickly on operations wherever needed. The Starfleet Corps of Engineers plays a major roll in these operations, taking on tasks ranging from repairing critical infrastructure destroyed or disrupted by both man-made and natural incidents, to major starship repairs at the Docks.
With the recent collapse of the Federation and the dissolution of Starfleet and the Marines, Starbase 80 became a home for any ex fleet and Marine personnel who chose to not resign themselves to obscurity. Entire ships ignored the Councils last order to return to Earth to turn over all Fleet and Marine property to the Councils new military force, the Council Protectorate. At the same time, the newly formed New Frontier Alliance needed a defense force to protect their interests as they continued to organize. The forces gathering at Starbase 80 were taylor made for this task. Quickly reaching an agreement with Commodore O'Shea, the stations master, the new Starfleet quickly resumed their mission, albeit for a new government.
The original FRF tasks as denoted by their Charter (For historical purposes only):
- The FRF is certified by the Federation Council and Starfleet to perform a wide variety of tasks including: providing an immediate response capability for conducting collective defense of Alliance members in the event of an Article V operation;
- crisis management operations;
- acting as the initial force deployment as a precursor to deployment of a much larger force;
- peace support operations;
- disaster relief;
- protection and re-construction of critical infrastructure.
The FRF is comprised of five parts:
- Command and Control element based on a deployable Joint Force Headquarters;
- Corps of Engineers element;
- Logistics Mobility Command element;
- Immediate Response Force (up to 25,000 land, air and space-borne forces provided by Starfleet);
- Response forces Pool (additional troops when necessary).
Starbase 80 is also home to the Marine's 7th Rapid Reaction Corps.
"Before the fall of the Federation..."
In the months following the destruction of Romulus the Federation found itself under attack by members of the Kzin Consortium. Although technically winners of this 'mini war', outer areas of the Federation continue to be plagued with small incursions and pirate activity. The area known as the Frontier, never known as the most lawful region of space to begin with, has become even more dangerous than ever. Pirate groups once thought to be all but eradicated once again work their territory with a ferociousness never seen before. Black market camps operate in open defiance of the law. Weapons, drugs, slaves...nothing is off limits.
And why should it be? For them the way is wide open. So many ships were destroyed during the war that the majority of them operate in the inner core of the Federation. The fringes are mainly on their own. In an effort to try to bring some semblance of order back to these areas, Starfleet had dispatched a few select Capital ships to operate in these areas...Alone. For there were not enough ships or crew to return a full scale presence to these areas. So they did what they could, and not always completely within the rules. For out there, it truly is survival of the fittest.
We invite you to come and join us as we work to once again bring peace and order to the Frontier. Many adversities await us, but we will respond to them as one crew...one voice. Above all, we will represent both our station and ourselves in the Starfleet tradition of excellence.
New Frontier is a rated 18+ sim

OK...there have been a LOT of things happening in my personal life that some of you know about, and others do not. I am currently in the process of a divorce, and have custody of my 4 kids. My ex spent a bit of time in a behavioral health facility for suicidal precautions and severe clinical depression, and was diagnosed with Bipolar II. She walked out and left the kids in the care of myself and a close friend...literally one day, telling us to figure out child care and such. And that was 4 months ago, and things are just now starting to stabilize. So at the encouragement of several people, I am going to try to bring this back to life.
I understand if you do not wish to participate, but please just drop me a note and let me know so Jason and I can figure out where we are. Thank you.
