Welcome aboard Eagle!

Welcome to the Eagle (NX-12), 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 they decided that the Enterprise Program should be terminated after the accident where Paraagan II was destroyed.

After the Vulcan retreat from their relationship with Earth when the government decided to defy the advice of the High Command, the Andorians and Vissians moved into the role of guiding Earth into its exploration of the galaxy.

Our sim takes place in the year of 2160 and is based aboard the NX Type vessel Eagle, under the command of Captain Eugene Cavett.

For more information about joining, please check our sim’s database and rules. We'd also like to invite you to join our discord chat server.



You must be 18 years of age or older to join Eagle.
Anyone under the age of 18 should seek parental guidance before reading beyond our homepage.


The Eagle is a mobile friendly community.

» The Status of our Sims

Posted on 26 Jun 2018 @ 9:49am by Captain Eugene Cavett in General News

I've been thinking heavily about the status of our community over the past few weeks. The energy I have for writing Star Trek has dwindled. I'm having some trouble coming up with fresh ideas to keep things moving. My interest in writing certain plots or unit types shifts often after around sixteen years of writing the same genre.

There has been little interest in the overall Task Force 39 community with little of the plans to develop moving forward. Most of this is my own fault because I find motivation in others wanting to participate and not just the desire to make it work on my own when it comes to these communities.

I've been looking at the USS Healy and wondering why I haven't been able to come up with the desire to write the solo posts to get the mission going. I love writing with each one of you and joint posts are fantastically easy and fun to write but when it comes time for me to sit down and work on my own it's getting harder and harder.

I've decided that I don't want to give up on the sims, however, I want them to succeed for us. I want to continue as a private community including the members we have currently and anyone you all wish to invite to the group but I will no longer be actively recruiting.

For the Healy, I'll be working with the AGM to get the mission going again. I ask that you guys just be patient as I get that rolling again. I am also going to be asking that anyone who is interested in developing a race to discover or to lead a mission step up and offer.

For the Eagle, we have missions planned and ready to go. I have started the new mission and there should be a response from every member of the crew in a discussion on the new mission at hand, preparations, and etc. There is a schedule of who should be on the bridge giving orders... Cavett has told the OOD to contact the XO and CMC who should start the gears moving as they received those orders and are now delegating to their subordinates and the like.

In addition, each member needs to send me a PM on the NOVA of EACH sim giving me their desire to continue as a member, what characters they want to be added or removed. We are no longer worried about leaving postings to attract new members so if you want to add additional characters to feel free. First come, first serve. If someone is not heard from within two weeks they will be removed.

As for activity, things have slowed, I'm okay with that. I'm currently working on some non-Star Trek writing that I'm pretty excited about. I have decided that both the Eagle & Healy will drop to requiring one post per month per member. Joint post responses should come as soon as possible still please don't keep your partners waiting forever... communicate intentions with speed with one another, etc.

Website stuff will start being simplified. I will be working on slowly updating the NOVAs to the newest version to be compliant with the European privacy stuff. I will also be shutting down the TF39 URL and moving everything back to just SPC Simms. I will also be looking at options for hosting as my hosting expires in August (I think) and I am going to see what pricing options are, etc.

As for Kepler and Hypatia I will continue to host them on our Discord and support them as best possible, with links to their sites, etc.

Any questions please feel free to DM me on Discord or send me a PM via the Nova.

Thank you all for your understanding and dedication over the years.

~Stephen

» Sombra da Águia

Posted on 04 Apr 2018 @ 12:29am by Captain Eugene Cavett in Sim Announcement

Introducing our third mission: Sombra da Águia!

Eagle is dispatched to check the Communication's Relay, Echo 4, which has gone offline without warning. The relay had been recently upgraded by Engineers while en route to a new colony located at Mineiros. When the crew arrives at the location of the relay only a debris field is found. It was obviously destroyed and by an unfamiliar weapons signature. When Captain Cavett attempts to make contact with the colonial government on Mineiros and no response is received the Eagle responds at Emergency Warp. Upon arriving at the colony they find it in ruins and make contact with a vessel from the Romulan Star Empire.

The name of the colony is based on the name of a Brazillian City randomly discovered on Google Maps by Kristen and so we continued the theme for this next set of missions involving the Romulan Star Empire by naming them in Portuguese the main language of Brazil. The RSE is also known as an "Eagle" and so the translation of our new mission is "Eagle's Shadow".

As we are a bit behind in the start of this mission I will be sending JPs out to a few people tonight to get things moving forward but the first post of the mission will likely be somewhat delayed. I ask all members to begin their posting use the mission notes for information and ask for clarification if needed. Please feel free to begin to write posts but I ask that they're held onto until the first mission post is made by myself or Kristen.

Thanks,
Stephen
