Welcome to the 22nd century!

The fight for Humanity's survival has begun!

WELCOME

Space seems so vast and once a region is explored and mapped out another one soons follows. For over five years now, the United Earth and its Commonwealth of Colonies have been discovering new planets, races and regions they never knew existed. Now after forming an alliance with nearby nations, Humanity continues to push forward in finding out what lies out there.

The Challenger is Earth’s third ship to be launched to find out what is beyond Earth and to prove to so many that Humans are able to take on the responsibilities of inter-galactic politics. These early days of exploration are exciting and dangerous ones for those members of the Challenger’s crew. However like so many ships before her that have been named Challenger, the ship and her crew will not stop until they reach the final frontier.

Earth and its Commonwealth of Colonies are pushing the boundaries for the first time, this is history in the making like you’ve never seen before! Commanded by Captain Lloyd Burton, the crew of Challenger carry out their motto; ad utilitatem omnium – for the benefit of all.

Star Trek: Challenger, is a fiction simulation set in the mid-22nd century, shortly after the events seen in Star Trek: Enterprise “Terra Prime” and before “These Are The Voyages…”. Our aims are to provide a fun, safe and quality writing environment for all who wish to discover the potential that makes Star Trek such a successful world-wide creative institute.

While The Iron Is Hot

The death of a captain and chief science officer, leaves the starship Challenger in dissary before it has even launched. Without any other choice, Starfleet promotes its first officer to assume command. Captain Burton must lead a critical mission to ensure the survial of the Colaition of Planets while bringing together his new crew on a brand new ship.

Birds Of A Feather

With the likelihood of their mission at Denobula being a success, Challenger responds to a distress call from a human colony convoy. After saving them, Challenger escorts them to their new home: Archer IV. However when they arrive they soon find themselves taking on an adversary who is bent on preventing Earth and its allies from expanding any further. 

Hell Hath No Fury

The Andorian Empire elects a brand new chancellor, someone who has worked closely with Captain Burton and his crew before. A surprise invite from her brings the ships to Andoria to further strengthen ties with Earth’s newest ally. All of the diplomatic overtures are quickly binned when an Andorian world is invaded by unlikely aggressors and Challenger is faced with the prospect of going in to battle!

The Sky’s The Limit

After a few weeks of exploring, Starfleet sends Challenger on another diplomatic mission. This time they must make contact with the Deltan race. Meeting these friendly people seems promising until their old rivals, the Carreons launch an attack that cripples not ust the Deltan people but Challenger too. Forced to defend themselves, Challenger and its crew are torn apart across new worlds, with some of them finding themselves on a place where the cities live in the skies. 

All for One & One For All

Being rescued by their Andorian allies, Challenger is taken back to Earth for major repairs after it is discovered that war with the Romulan Star Empire has been declared. This short pitstop gives the crew time to visit Earth. For Captain Burton he must deal with the death of his father while others make life-time altering choices that either takes them down the aisle or entering the unknown world of parenthood. Juggling their private lives with their Starfleet ones is not going to be easy. 

The Romulan War: A Shot In The Dark

War has been declared between Earth and Romulus. Challenger is sent out to the frontlines and is ordered to find their sister ship, Discovery. Her captain, Frank Muller, is one Burton’s old time friendly rivals. When they finally found the NX-04, the crew of the Challenger soon decide to assist their counterparts on Discovery.  If they succeed in their mission not only will they save their comrades but will find a mean to turn the tide of the war-effort in their favour.

The Romulan War:
The Tholian Stratagem

With the Romulans no now longer able to use their tele-presence capturing devices on allied ships, Starfleet decides to take the fight to the Romulans. They instruct Burton to lead an attack against the Romulan shipyard and supply base in the Rator system. On the eve of their first strike though, the human fleet soon discover one other faction who are interested in fighting the Romulans…the Tholian Assembly. 

The Romulan War:
The Battle of Krios Prime

After a successful mission, Challenger leads the fleet back to Earth but on their way rescues the Krisosian flagship from a Klingon raptor. On board is the Krisoian leader, who has already dealt with Humanity before. She formally requests that they assist her in saving her homeworld. In return for their help she will bring Krios in to the war effort against the Romulans. However the Starfleet armada must take on the Klingon Empire! 

The Romulan War:
Whatever The Cost May Be

Challenger finally makes it back home, but are forced to lead Earth’s forces one more time. After their successful campaign against the Romulans in Rator, their enemy has different ideas.  Starfleet must bring together its toughest forces as the Romulan Empire brings their ships in to the Sol system, their target: Earth’s annihalition! 
Captain Burton and his crew will save their homeworld, whatever it takes!
