Star Trek: Defiant

A Play-by-Nova roleplay game.

Welcome to the Star Trek: Defiant!

USS Defiant: About Us



USS Defiant is a 15+ collaborative roleplay community set within the Kelvin timeline established in the movies post-2009. A frontier simulation, the crew of the Defiant are tasked with supporting the barely functional Arcadia station in an attempt to explore and expand Starfleet's reach within the untamed Carinae Traverse. Writers will have the opportunity to partake in a brand new adventure as the crew begins a reboot, starting with the new origins of the USS Defiant and how her crew came together.

If you have a particular vision for a character that's not reflected on the manifest please feel free to contact the command team in order to see what can be done.

USS Defiant is a proud member of Obisidian Fleet's Task Group 29C "Different Universes".

After her late-night conversation with Adalind had flopped harder than anticipated, Niamh had found herself restless and had gotten little sleep.
