Welcome to United Earth Starfleet!

United Earth Starfleet is a Star Trek Collaborative Writing Group that takes place in an Alternate Universe where the Federation was not formed. Earth’s relationship with the Vulcans took a serious downturn when the Vulcan High Command requested that the Warp 5 Program should be terminated after an unfortunate accident in which the Paraagan mining colony, Paraagan II, was destroyed. Earth, deciding to defy the advice of Vulcan, continued with the program. With the Vulcans no longer involved, this left an opening for the Andorians and Vissians to partner with Earth and guide them in their exploration of the galaxy.


Our storyline currently focuses on the Antares NX-11 which was originally designated as a Deep Space Rescue vessel. After a program failure the vessel was redesignated as a regular ship of the line. The Antares was also refitted with upgraded engines to be the second ship capable of Warp 6.


Other Starfleet Units touched on in our writing is Apollo Base, Eagle NX-12, and Starfleet Command. Apollo Base is Starfleet's very first star base and is located along the Andorian-Vulcan border and is home to the Treaty Enforcement Group after the incident at the P'Jem monistary. The Eagle is the flagship of United Earth Starfleet and was the first Warp 6 variant of the NX-Type. Starfleet Command is written by the UES Staff and provides updates to the ongoings and lifestyle on Earth and around UES.


Our unique timeline and canon can be found on our database.

» Small Rule/Structure Update

Posted on 11 May 2021 @ 9:30pm by Captain Annett Matthews D.Eng. in Community Updates

Just a small update but wanted to be sure that we are transparent as possible regarding updates to the community rules. The rules were updated to reflect a small structural change in the titles of the OOC Staff of UES. We have removed the IC/OOC link to positions and introduced a new staff structure.

The Game Master [GM] is now the leader of the community who will be assisted by (an) Assistant Game Master(s) [AGM] who will be full administrators. The UES Staff will further be made up of Deputy Game Masters [DGM] who are assigned specific staff functions.

The updates have been made to nova and to the staff page on the database. Additional members have been invited to write as part of Starfleet Command and have had NPCs created for IC purposes only. Anyone interested in NPCing a role on Antares, Apollo Base, or Starfleet Command should contact the GM Directly.

Any questions please ask a member of the staff in Discord.

» Monthly Repot – May 2021

Posted on 03 May 2021 @ 1:11pm by Captain Annett Matthews D.Eng. in Monthly Reports

Greetings UES! It's hard to believe that I'm sitting here (three days late) working on the monthly report I feel as if I had just posted the last one days ago. But we had a lot happen in April and so here is a little review:

We had a major change in direction in how to handle the future of our community at and at the end of the day what we found most important. We had begun transitioning our sim into a small fleet-like organization but in the end, it just wasn't capturing the momentum that any of us who were in on the main project was hoping for. So after some reflection and realizing that we 4000% wanted quality over quantity decided to refoucs.

So as announced we will be moving forward with our organization focusing on the fantastic story of United Earth Starfleet using our unique timeline. After the current mission, the story will redirect on Antares from the Deep Space Rescue focus to the main UES Timeline and developing further canon. Other Starfleet units and stories developed already or for the future of our canon will take place on the main UES nova in addition to Antares now. Don't worry I have a plan on how to approach all of that in character and won't ruin the surprise so hang tight as we go through this mission.

Back mid-March we launched a new community goals page which as been included on the new database located here. It was updated this morning with all of our new priorities and the like as we progress through our redirection and continue to develop our great community and canon.

This past month we completed quite a few goals before the redirection which included:

• Revamping our Community Rules
• Establishing a membership database to track awards, special promotions/assignments, etc.
• We recruited a Chief of Staff who will assume their duties later in the summer.
• And we also established a Mission Support team whose current focus is the official NX-Type specs and then will continue to work on developing our new database.

You can read our updated Community Goals by clicking here. These goals include the past due goal of establishing our official NX-Type specifications, some new recurring goals, and our continued needs in moving forward with developing our community.

If anyone has any questions, comments, or concerns please reach out to a member of Starfleet Command via Discord.

Hope all is well, and thank you to our fantastic members for all of you do.

Posted on 28 Apr 2021 @ 9:43pm by Captain Annett Matthews D.Eng. in Community Updates

As already announced we are going through some redirection to return to focusing on a good story instead of expansion. We will be adding elements from Apollo Base, Starfleet Command, and other ships within the UES as time goes on. We will be writing all from this central nova which now makes up our main website.

The website for UES and the Antares nova is now located at https://uestarfleet.com and everyone needs to update their bookmarks. The WordPress website has been disabled and we are now hosting our database on a new wiki located at https://database.uestarfleet.com

Anyone who notices any issues with the website or database such as bugs please create a support ticket from #welcome in the Discord server to notify Starfleet Command and we can properly track and deal with any issues. Please note the website is still a giant work in progress as we change content to reflect the entire UES and not just Antares on the website. A new wiki theme will be coming in the future as well but for now the default will do.

Any issues or questions please contact a member of Starfleet Command on discord or open a ticket as mentioned above.

Respectfully,

ADM Seth Kern
Chief of Starfleet Operations


» A Little Redirection

Posted on 27 Apr 2021 @ 1:20pm by Captain Annett Matthews D.Eng. in Community Updates

I began work on the EagleVerse canon that UES follows over seven years ago as a proposal for a sim that I never presented to the fleet I had intended it to be a part of. I began working on the canon again about a year later and got who I consider my co-founder, Kristen, onboard and we developed out our complete timeline. I’ve always dreamed on having a small group of multiple sims that would eventually fully develop this canon. And there have been multiple versions of the Eagle (NX-12) sim that started us off that ran successfully for two years before closing down due to real-life commitments between myself and Kristen where we couldn’t give Eagle the time she deserved. After some time away we began working on revamping the sim and updated the timeline a bit more to its current version but she couldn’t rejoin and so I began Antares (NX-11) as the replacement sim which has been up and running (with some difficulties thanks to COVID) but is still active and now moving forward once again. Which led to United Earth Starfleet….

Unfortunately, I have a little problem with boredom and it leads me to do crazy things. I decided that while I was sitting at home and out of work (going on six months now) recovering from major heart surgery now was the time to move forward with making UES larger. I began working on a new website and I began recruiting more staff and preparing to expand into multiple sims which honestly didn’t work well. My focus on how we operated detracted from telling a story…. and the staff I recruited failed to fulfill their duties and were removed or resigned.

I attempted to recruit for two new sims the Falcon (NX-08) and Apollo Base (FOB-1) with the Commanding Officer of Falcon and the Executive Officer of Apollo Base being removed for inactivity. The only other crew member who responded with interest in joining Falcon now no longer had a sim with a CO to join. It wasn’t going well… and my focus again fell away from the story…. so what to do?

Currently, we are working on moving our current database onto a new wiki that will be themed to match the current Antares nova. The Antares nova will be moved to the main domain of UES and the UES website closed down. The Antares nova will be turned into the United Earth Starfleet website and the Antares will be the main focus of UES. The opportunity to take part in Apollo Base or Falcon or even Starfleet Command as an NPC will still be there and those units will be still coming up in character on the UES storyline and the nova! Making it easier for members to participate wherever they’d like.

So, to recap! We are still going strong with a bit of a redirection coming to make our story our priority and to help everyone participate easily in any capacity that they would like. We will not be moving our websites around until our new database is prepared though you’ll see some changes on the nova and discord in the meantime. We plan on having our new database ready to go by June 1st.

Hey everyone! Please make sure that you check out the recent updates to our Community Goals with progress being shared by members of Starfleet Command. While you're at it please stop into the Discord in #earth and help liven up the place. While we have always strived to be a great community when it was just us on the Antares it is even more important to have an inviting atmosphere to our newcomers as well to help develop our new group United Earth Starfleet.
