Welcome to the USS Montana!

Welcome to the Federation Starship USS Montana NCC-1889
A member of the Independence Fleet.


We are a semi-canon based sim, commencing our voyages in 2289, approximately two years after the events of the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home with some modifications to the continuity.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country set in 2293 has not happened yet. Thus the Federation and Starfleet are still expanding, the period of great exploration is underway and the Klingons are still dangerous and aggressive antagonists...


Key deviations from canon in our alternate timeline include:


1. StarTrek: The Motion Picture never happened but Captain James T Kirk completed a second five year mission and was promoted to Admiral;


2. The events in the other movies occurred as shown on screen:
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier


3. At the end Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, James T. Kirk is demoted from Admiral to Commodore. He and the Enterprise were sent off on a third and final five year mission.
Sulu left the ship and was promoted to Captain of the Excelsior.


4. Our voyages commence in 2289 before those events.
For us the future is open and unknown...

» Wiki updates with schematics and maps

Posted on Wed Jan 13th, 2021 @ 1:38pm by Captain RS Harrison in Website Update

I’ve made some wiki page updates primarily regarding phasers and communicators and track orders which results in four pieces of equipment that make it redesigned in the game.

I’ve also posted the deck plans in the map as a wiki page for reference without a better option I think will adopt those soon.

Similarly I have posted a link to a map of Federation space.

I also think there’s one other wiki page update but good night.


» Congratulations Mr. Ryson

Posted on Sun Jan 10th, 2021 @ 10:20am by Captain RS Harrison in Sim Announcement

I messaged Mr. Ryson privately but I thought I'd make a News item.

Mr. Ryson's post is Great. It is just about exactly what I asked for (I'm not looking) but I just read it and I was very please with what he turned in.

Congratulations, Mr. Ryson and thank you.

Feel free to post again while we wait for me to nudge us out of Spacedock. I think I mentioned everyone can make multiple posts like this so go ahead everyone.

Ryson put up a good example.

Anyone can contact me with questions but my schedule is weird and I may not reply quickly.

Thanks again.

P.S. I've read some other stuff that isn't published but since this is published and you can all see it I wanted to congratulate him in public. I've gotten a few questions and samples from players who clearly did not read my initial instructions and I was worried that I had not been clear but I'm satisfied now that I was not too vague in my assignment regarding the first post and that is partly why I'm making this public comment. That and Ryson's post was also enjoyable as noted. And... we're off!
