Welcome to the USS Aries!



The God of War himself could not have wished for a better ship to be named after him.

Throughout the 2370's the Aries took the game to their enemies, those that threatened peaceful way of life. Ironically this was not the peaceful solution but often they were the last resort if diplomatic channels were not working or the first resort if the situation warranted covert deniable action from Starfleet.

Crewed by marines, all with the skills to get the dirty jobs done that no-one else wanted, the Aries is a tough ship to be on but one where family is key.

In 2375 they disappeared with all traces, never to be seen or heard from again. That is until now in 2429 a Defiant class has appeared with the transponder not heard from in 54 years.

After discovering there is no way to return to their own time, the few remaining crew of the USS Aries have accepted their destiny of making a new life for themselves in 2429. They have been outfitted with a new, improved ship as well as a new crew to start this chapter in their lives.

Major Halbren and his crew have been assigned to the Auriga Quadrant, where the Federation has planted a new colony. Their mission is to explore the planets within the Quadrant as well as patrol and protect the colony. Are the rumors of the Klingons secretly roaming this quadrant true and if so what are their reasons? What new species could the Aries meet along the way?

Come join our crew and help us discover this uncharted quadrant!


As said we are a marine based ship and do the jobs no-one else is suited for within the 16th Fleet.

We are a small group with refined roles due to the size of the ship and the style of play in which marines are suited.

Please take a look at the manifest and see if you want to join us.

USS Aries is a Star Trek role-playing SIM that is played using Nova, a role-playing system developed by Anodyne Productions. You must be 15 or older to join this SIM!

Marines! To Attention!

First update of the simm, and of the year. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for the hard work over January and since we began late last year. December/January are hard months to find time, or motivation, to post and I again thank you all for your efforts in doing so.

We had one new arrival in the form of Captain Rick 'Joker' Holt played by Rich whom I think most of us know from other places we write and am thankful he has joined us on our slog through the stars. We've had no-one leave which is also quite good for the month of January.

Our mission 'Emergence' is moving along nicely with character development happening in places as we find out what's happened to the Aries and our crew, where/when we are and how to move forward. With a total of 6 posts which I hope to beat in the coming month with at least 4 in the works as we speak. Good work folks.

I will be doing some recruitment this month for more writers to add to our group, hopefully fill some key positions that we need. If anyone knows any writers that have expressed an interest in our type of ship please let them know where we are and are happy to accept those with imagination.

Any ideas for the mission, for future missions or just in general don't be afraid to speak to myself or XO. We are more than happy to incorporate ideas from all to enhance the experience for all.

Safe February Marines!

Dismissed!
