NCC - 86105

Welcome to the USS Endeavour!

Sedit qui timuit ne non succederet - He who feared he would not succeed sat still

The Federation has been rocked by war more than one time in the past century. It has had conflict with the Romulans, the Klingons, the Borg, and ever so recently, the Dominion. Though the last such conflict was over a decade ago now, and the Federation policy makers hope to once again look outwards towards scientific explanation, their peacekeepers Starfleet are much more pragmatic. They understand that the interlude between conflicts is just that; an interlude. A temporary state of being before the next conflict, whenever that may be. And they know that we must be prepared for this. They also know that we must do everything in our power to deter our closer and more predictable neighbours from beginning the next quadrant-spanning battle.

It is for that purpose that the Sovereign class exists. Designed to defend against the Borg - the most deadly threat to ever face the Federation, even with the focus of their gaze turned elsewhere, she comes equipped with a variety of top-of-the-line technologies designed with one thing in mind; battle. Even her very space frame is designed in such a way as to make a potential aggressor think twice about whether they would want to attack this mighty beast. And yet, for some reason there's always somebody in the galaxy ignorant enough to do just that.

But then, Starfleet cannot operate on its own. It must bow down before the will of the policy makers on Earth and in the Federation Council. And so they have been incorporating all of the aspects of traditional Starfleet values into this mighty vessel; sophisticated sensor arrays and stellar cartography labs; the very finest in diplomatic facilities; the epitome of research equipment and the very best intellectual minds the quadrant has to offer. It is through this blending of design ethos that the Sovereign class has become an all-round Ship-of-the-Line, capable of performing almost any task that Starfleet needs of her. And the Endeavour is the very best of her class.

Captain Byrne and his crew have been assigned now to the Galactic South for two years, and in that time they've made the second ever known contact with the Metrons, been flung to a far-off galaxy and back again, done battle with ship-infesting beasts of the insect variety, and discovered an ancient secret whilst negotiating trade agreements.

Who knows what the next adventure on board will be?

Current Mission:

With the Captain and Lieutenant Kessel now a member of the Borg Remnant, can the remaining crew of the Endeavour complete their mission, and stop the lone cube from returning to the Collective with a disastrous piece of technology?

The USS Endeavour is a 13+ rated Role Play. We insist that any writers wishing to join the ship be 13 years of age or older.

OK guys, the last posts of 'Remnant, Part II' are out!

I'll be sorting out the move over to the Highlander now. The new URL is - all of your user accounts were moved over a little while back, so you should all be able to log straight in. Let me know if you have any problems.

I'll be leaving the Endeavour site up as an archive of sorts, but from now on, everything needs to be done on the Highlander site :)

Posted on Sun Jan 12th, 2014 @ 4:32pm by Captain Benjamin Byrne in Sim Announcement

OK everyone, we're getting very close to the end of this plot now :) As of a few minutes ago, all of the posts needed to wrap up this mission - and thus our time on the Endeavour - are currently active and being worked on. We have four JPs (two of which are close to being finished) and one solo post from myself (which is done and ready) to go, and then we can get this plot out of the way and make way for the Highlander!

Let's try and get tags seen to as soon as possible please now; I'd like for us to get a good momentum going which we can hopefully carry straight over to the Highlander to kick us off there.

» PF Post of the Month Vote

Posted on Sun Jan 5th, 2014 @ 3:56pm by Captain Benjamin Byrne in Fleet News

Hey guys

The fleet is restarting its post of the month awards process, and they've put up the vote for the posts submitted for December.

The actual selection process is a straight up vote for the winner on the PF forums, and everyone in the fleet gets a vote. Since one of our posts is up there, why don't you all head over and take a browse at them :)

» Important: Notify me of any character or account changes

Posted on Tue Nov 26th, 2013 @ 9:45pm by Captain Benjamin Byrne in Website Update

OK everyone; I've taken the database of all of your user accounts and characters to transpose them on to the Highlander site; all of your login information and character bios should be preserved, but it means that any changes you make on this site between now and the move will not be carried over.

So if you do many any changes - any additions to your bio, change your password, etc - then you need to let me know so that I can copy over the relevant piece of the database.

And don't worry - I can't actually see what your passwords are, as they are stored on the DB in an encrypted format. Just to let you know for peace of mind :)

» NPC Audit

Posted on Fri Nov 15th, 2013 @ 9:36pm by Captain Benjamin Byrne in Out of Character

OK guys, as this mission goes on, I'm going to start transferring the necessary data over to the site that we will be using as the Highlander. However, I don't want to transfer stuff over that isn't really needed or is just going to get deleted anyway.

So, what I'd like you to do is do a quick audit of the NPCs in your department, and let me know which ones you want to keep, and which ones you want to get rid of. I don't have any rules at all on how many I'll be sending over - just as I said, I don't want to be sending over ones that aren't going to get used on the new ship.

You can also add new ones once we get over to the new ship site (please hold off on adding any new ones on this site now, since it may not be included in the data transfer if you do)

If you could PM me when you're done, then I'll get the data transfer ready to go after I've heard from each of you.

"They're not doing anything." One of the volunteers noted as the transporter beam dissipated, leaving the away team alone on the Borg Cube. "They're just... standing there!"

Commander Ra-Xialli emerged onto the bridge, wearing the optional duty vest, with his undershirt, sleeves rolled up. Given the lack of crew onboard, to conserve power, life support to most non-essential areas had been deactivated. Lighting, air conditioning and power to those areas were now dark, making any transit between…
