Space... The Final Frontier....

Earth faces its biggest threat since the Xinidi super weapon. The Romulan Star Empire has declared war and Earths attempts to form a peaceful Coalition of Planets have taken a backwards step. Starfleet must mount their defence against their attackers; losses have already been taken on both sides. Romulan operatives and Nausicaan mecenaries are attacking key Starfleet systems such as New Darwin Colony and Forrest Outpost.

The First Era is a Star Trek writing / play-by-email role playing game set in the days of the legendary Enterprise NX-01, Captain Jonathan Archer and Cmdr Charles 'Trip' Tucker. We have a number of postings available for new crew members, both officer positions and enlisted roles. We've been around for over six years!

The Enterprise era in the Star Trek timeline represents a gritty, more challenging period, as Humans make their first forrays in space exploration; encoutering new alien civilisations and the wonders and dangers that come with it.

If you think you might be interested in joining a starship we have three games available. The NX-04 Challenger, NX-05 Yorktown and NX-06 Meridian. Or if you want to experience life on a planet on the edge of Coalition space, 25 light years from Earth, touch down on New Darwin Colony. Alternativly, you could dock with a Starfleet starbase supporting the fleet in deep space from the Delta Pyxidis system. Forrest Outpost; named in honour of former Starfleet Commander, Admiral Maxwell Forrest!

We are in the middle of a fleet plot playing out aspects of the Romulan / Earth war. But science, exploration, new discoveries, first contact and the other appeals of space are also on the agenda in the coming months!

Full training is given when you join the TFE Academy in order to aclimatise you with the era we play in and how to play the game.

You have the option of playing a Human, Denobulan, Andorian or a Vulcan. Please email queries to or visit our website at for more information. To join either email or follow the join link on our website.
