The USS Hyperion is a Hyperion class starship currently on patrol in the M'Kieru Sector in the galactic west of the Beta Quadrant, directly between Klingon and Romulan Star Empires. The events of this simulation occur after the Hobus incident and the disappearance of Ambassador Spock and the destruction of the Romulan Star Empire.


In September 2388, following the destruction of the USS Hyperion (NCC-7438-F) when it re-phased into our own space-time universe, the crew were left stranded on the planet Felona VIII where they were to await the arrival of the brand new ship and class, USS Hyperion NX-7438. The new ship will patrol the M'Kieru Sector as its predecessor did before.

In November 2388, The crew encountered a Klingon Bird of Prey adrift whilst repairing relay bouys on their shake down crew, whilst Commander Rachel Harrington conducted her Internship for Distant Learning Course for Command School. The crew of the Klingon Ship turned out to be changlings on a scouting mission to the Beta Quadrant. Commander Harrington enlisted the help of a friendly Klingon crew who appeared and took control of the alien Klingon vessel.

January 2389 saw the humanoid crew of the Hyperion come down with Dulgarian Flu whilst enroute to the Valt System. The had orders to search and rescue an unknown Starfleet Ensign by the name of Telsia Harrington.

January 2390 saw the Commanding Officer, Captain Douglas Irvine removed from command to follow a higher purpose as a Starfleet undercover operative. Sadly, Captain Irvine was recorded MIA in January of that year, leaving Commander Grendon to assume command. Starfleet Command promoted the commander to Captain following the completion of his Intern mission at Starfleet Academy, which he pass with flying colours and the top 2% of his class.

And so to a brand new chapter for the crew of the valiant USS Hyperion (NX-7438)...

Current Operations

Mission : Red, Green & Blue - On one side the remnants of the Romulan Star Empire, once a feared enemy, now humbled in the face of disaster. On the other the Klingon Empire, fired and thirsty for conquest and vengeance for their fallen comrades. Between them the thin blue line of Federation starships that patrol the Romulan Neutral Zone. But when two Romulan warbirds set a course for Federation space, the USS Hyperion stands alone between these two bitter enemies in an attempt to prevent the next interstellar war.

Latest OOC

We say farewell to the former long-term Executive Officer and Deputy Games Manager of the Hyperion, Andrea Mihalyi who retires through for RL. She takes with her her characters, Captain Rachel Harrington (COO) resigned from Starfleet and Lieutenant Telsia Harrington resigned from Starfleet.

Lieutenant Commander Jacob West is promoted to XO effective immediately.

We are recruiting now, if you are interested in joining our simulations, contact the commanding officer.

Mission Logs

These are the mission logs of the USS Hyperion (NX-7438) from Dec 2384 until present.

N/A Dec 2384 - Apr 2388 NCC Campaigns Archived Mission Logs These are the mission logs of the USS Hyperion (NCC-7438-F) from its first mission on starting on December 5th 2384 (2008)
1 Apr 2388 - Aug 2388 NCC Final Campaign The M'Kieru Sector The final mission of the USS Hyperion (NCC-7438-F). After being given command of the Hyperion by Admiral Ambler Furry, the former Commanding Officer, Captain Roshma Erti Xire Jul, or Rex for short, was ordered to take the ship and crew to their new base of operations Starbase 123, where Admiral Ambler Furry was to be the Sector Commander. Whilst there, Rex was given compassionate leave to bury his mother, sister and two brothers who died in a failed rescue attempt at Romulus, following the Hobus Incident. When the ship received a distress call, the crew find themselves being hijacked by slave-traders from an alternative reality who have the technology to jump between realities. However, something doesn't seem right when the crew start fighting for their freedom at the cost of the ship.
2 Oct 2388 - Dec 2388 Shaken Shakedown Campaign A Shaken Shakedown As part of her final training for Command School, Commander Rachel Harrington the Second Officer and Chief of Operations, takes command of the Hyperion with Commander Jennifer Evans as her Executive Officer. Captain Rex Jul and Commander Blake Cassidy take a trip of Earth for a conference allowing Commander Rachel Harrington to take command. During her seemingly simple mission of repairing relay buoys, the crew of the Hyperion discover a Klingon Bird of Prey adrift. Upon closer examination, an away team discover a strange layout on the bridge, a hidden room and strange Klingon crew who attack the away team without provocation.
3 Jan 2389 - April 2389 Shaken Shakedown Campaign Stitch in Time When a Federation Signal is discovered on a non-Federation aligned planet, Starfleet Command order the Hyperion to investigate, despite the distance from her main area of operations. The real reason for the orders soon become apparent when the crew discover the source of the signature is the USS Hyperion NCC-7438, a predecessor of the current ship what makes it worse, a rogue Klingon Captain, loyal to the House of Duras also detects the signal and investigates, assuming it is a Federation Look out post to spy on Klingon activity. However, things get turned upside down fairly quickly when the crew find them selves fighting the laws of physics as well as the Klingons. Can they find the source of the Hyperion signature before the Klingons do? Will they be able to rewrite their understanding of Physics and the Universe in order to prevent the artefact falling into the Klingon's hands?
4 May 2389 - Oct 2389 Shaken Shakedown Campaign The Peacekeeper Sometimes Peace is the cause of destruction. Sometimes Peace is misguided. Sometimes Peace. As the USS Hyperion is ordered to have a complete decontamination procedure at the Remmler Array orbiting Akaria Three, the crew settle down to helping Lieutenant Commander Grendon celebrate his anniversary with his wife and the month-long Festival of the Sky. Festivities are cut short when explosions rip through the Akarian Base, killing many and injuring many more. The crew come face to face with a new threat, the likes of which they have never experienced before.
5 Nov 2389 - April 2390 The Red Matter Campaign Red, Green & Blue On one side the remnants of the Romulan Star Empire, once a feared enemy, now humbled in the face of disaster. On the other the Klingon Empire, fired and thirsty for conquest and vengeance for their fallen comrades. Between them the thin blue line of the Federation and their starships patrolling the Romulan Neutral Zone. But when two Romulan warbirds set a course for Federation space, the USS Hyperion stands alone between these two bitter enemies in an attempt to prevent the next interstellar war.
6 June 2390 - Present The Red Matter Campaign Pursuit Course A prison break from Starbase 143 leaves over twenty Romulan prisoners unaccounted for. Whilst most go to ground on the station, some escape from the station aboard a Federation runabout headed for the Neutral Zone. With a new captain and new first officer the Hyperion sets out to capture the fugitives and finds itself travelling trough more than just space in their attempt to stop them.

USS HYPERION PBeM RPG defines a mission as an active storyline piece. Periods of shore-leave as determined by the Command Team will not count towards the required mission. Members who join the RPG more than two months after the initial briefing of a mission will be required to complete a full mission.

4. actively participate in each mission, barring LOA (planned or otherwise).
5. actively read every member’s post.

USS HYPERION PBeM RPG Players who have requested a LOA are not required respond to a ‘tag’ until after the stated completion of their LOA. Response to a ‘tag’ during a LOA does not constitute an end to a LOA.

9. write with proper English (i.e. spelling, grammar and punctuation).
10. remain courteous and polite when talking with other members.
11. request an LOA to any member of the Command Team for any planned absences or send one in as soon as practicable for unplanned LOA.

Failure to meet any of these nine statements will result in a two strike system:

Strike 1: You will be contacted by a member of the command team, informing you of consequences if no post is sent within the next 7 days.

Strike 2: You will be removed from the group upon failing to post for two consecutive weeks.

You will be able to rejoin the simulation at a later date, but will resume from a junior position and with a BRAND NEW character.
