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!

Crew:

Thanks for bearing with me as real life took much of my time over the last month or so plus. Regardless, I'm back and ready to get the mission wrapped up. I plan to finish it toward the end of the week so feel free to get in anything you like between now and then. And of course, help us get to a resolution!

Our first 20 years as a fleet may be over, but I believe the Albion will be a big part of the next 20 years.
