Federation Space is a forum-based Star Trek role playing game set 40+ years after the events of The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, and Voyager. Players take on the role of Star Fleet officers stationed on starships across Federation space. Our game focuses on character development and writing, and we offer a fun, engaging community.

PLEASE NOTE: Though we are an RPG, we consider the game to be more of a fanfiction site with game elements. If you’re here to quickly get your own ship or become a Captain, it’s literally going to take you years. We have many players and several full-time starships. That means there are many other people currently playing on the site, also waiting for a chance to command. We welcome everyone who wants to play, but your motivation should be a love of writing and the desire to create stories with other players from around the world. If you are here ONLY for points and command, you are probably going to be disappointed.

Join Federation Space by completing the following steps:


From the following list, decide which department you would like to play. Though we can’t guarantee your first choice of department, every possible effort will be made to place you into your number one choice.

Engineers, simply put, keep a ship running. If it ticks, beeps, or makes any sort of clanging noise, call an engineer to fix it! Engineers may also fill the Operations position on the bridge, which includes communications and resources management. B’Elanna Torres, Geordi LaForge, Miles O’Brien, and Montgomery Scott all worked within the engineering field.

The medical staff is responsible for the health and welfare of all personnel stationed aboard. You get to meet with new species, deal with unknown diseases, and invent new medical procedures that benefit the Federation. Leonard McCoy, Beverly Crusher, Julian Bashir, and Voyager’s EMH have all played within the medical career field.

Science officers are in command of all scientific resources on board a vessel and make valuable assets to any away team mission. Whether you are interested in astronomy, physics, botany or any other field, science is the career field for you. Jadzia Dax and Spock both worked in this field.

Security officers are responsible for ensuring the safety of all crew members both on and off ship. You deal with intruder alerts, go on away team missions, and get to be armed with phasers and phaser rifles. They also handle criminal investigations. Tasha Yar, Worf, Odo, and Tuvok were all security specialists.

If you choose to play tactical, your primary duty station is on the bridge. You’re in charge of flying the ship while on the helm station, or you handle weapons operations and shields. The following characters have played within the Tactical career field: Tom Paris, Worf, Wesley Crusher, Sulu and Chekov.
