Welcome to the USS Albion!

Welcome to the USS Albion (NCC-3020), a Star Trek role play-by-post/email sim set in the TNG/DSN/VOY era. The Albion is a Galaxy-class starship with a mission of deep space exploration. We like to push the boundaries of our imaginations and delve into areas & ideas that haven't yet been traveled.

This game continues the simming tradition of Independence Fleet's historical USS Avalon. Please see the Sim tab for more information as the Albion is somewhat of an acquired taste.

Otherwise, we would love to have you Join our Adventure!
