Welcome to the Deep Space K-9! Remember the name- your life may depend on it!

“There are no brave men and cowardly men in the world, my son. There are only brave men. To be born, to live, to die—that takes courage enough in itself, and more than enough. We are all brave men and we are all afraid, and what the world calls a brave man, he too is brave and afraid like the all rest of us. Only he is brave for five minutes longer.”

-Alistair MacLean, "The Guns of Navarone" (1957)

2265: As Starfleet sits on the cusp of a new era, behind the scenes, trouble is brewing. Tensions with the Klingon Empire are beginning to flare up once more, and amongst several ongoing points of contention between the two galactic powers lies Sector 813, a region of space that is rich in dilithium and many other valuable resources.

the situation has changed drastically in just a few short months, as the Klingon Warlord Bra'Khis of the House Khartan has launched a campaign to annex several neighboring worlds, expanding the Empire's domain and bringing glory to his House.

Recognizing the threat that Bra'Khis poses, Starfleet Admiralty has approved the construction of a temporary Starbase, Deep Space Station K-9, to preside over diplomatic matters between several contentious factions who inhabit the sector, as well as establishing lines of trade that could give them a vital leg up over the Klingon Empire.

It won't be an easy task, with both deceit and peril lying around every corner; but with the possible alternative leaving the Federation at a grave disadvantage, failure is not an option for the men and women of Deep Space K-9.


Deep Space Station K-9 is a Play-By-Nova Star Trek role-playing game set in The Original Series era, with a key focus on espionage and cold war-era politics, but still trying to maintain the lighthearted whimsy of The Original Series. We are currently serving in Theta Fleet under Task Force 23-C, and are commanded by Commander Irene Vincent. Our content rating is 222, or “+18”:

Kate walked into her quarters and looked around. She set her PADD down on the desktop and looked at the sad pile of shipping crates that comprised her possessions. She exhaled a breath she wasn’t aware she’d been holding in.

“Well, I suppose I could knock that…
