Welcome to Project Delta! Hosted by RPG Initiative

This site is still under construction and things may change, added and or be removed without warning.


Where is this sim going:
This sim takes place in the Delta quadrant. This is the beginning of Starfleet’s Exploration Initiative carried out by a Task Force of 10 starships, the USS Pioneer, one of them. Their base of operations will be the asteroid colony of the Talaxians Voyager encountered prior to getting home. The Task Force will assist with the Talaxians move to a new world as our first mission. This sim will be following up on all of the Voyager series episodes and exploring what may be the current state of the Delta quadrant after Voyager's influence.

How did this sim get there:
The most stable considering the rest of the options that have been researched would be the Starfleet reversed engineered Quantum Slipstream Drive that Voyager encountered when they met Arturis. The alien translator attempted to get Janeway and Seven assimilated due to their interference in the Borg/8472 war. Arturis’ ship had the drive and Voyager’s crew studied it in great detail before making a prototype in an attempt to get Voyager home as well. Sadly a variance issue triggered them to abandon it a little later on but it still got them further home.

When they did get home all their data about the drive on Arturis’ ship and the Voyager's prototype, Starfleet Corps of Engineers was able to not only recreate the drive but improve it with the entire resources of the Federation behind the project, classified of course. The project had a good 20 years research and development with the Federation's top minds and Starfleet's resources backing it. They even theorised that with 2 drives working in concert could create a big enough slipstream corridor to allow a task force to travel in tight formation with vessels equipped with the drive but not have it themselves.

When is this sim:
There is a Pre-Launch mission already set up for Past experiences your characters have had prior to the Slipstream Project (and tests which happened 2395) that started in 2378, during the project and just prior to Project Delta's launch year of 2398. This sim ignores Star Trek: Picard and the Hobus Supernova. Any references or connections will be removed in biographies and posts.

Why is this sim going there:
The Federation Council is interested in learning about the state of affairs in the Delta quadrant since Voyager's return to the Federation 20 years ago. The council wants to form diplomatic ties including trading pacts with those races Voyager had successful First Contact with. The second primary reason the council authorised this mission is to make amends to those Voyager’s crew may have caused problems for and maybe investigate the Borg Collective’s current status and activities since Voyager's report of destroying the unacomplex that housed the Queen and one of six Transwarp hubs on their way back to Earth.

What is this sim doing there:
Along with the Starfleet Expeditionary Task Force, a convoy of 42 Merchant Marine and Colonial vessels are to initiate all the trading/commerce while Starfleet supervises and working towards diplomatic relations while the rest of the explorer classed starships in the Task Force survey the unknown and re-evaluate the known space Voyager passed through.
