The SS Starfarer, is a Star Trek PBB sim set on a Raven class civilian vessel.

The story starts with the Starfarer being used to transport a new time drive for Temporal Investigations. Along with this valuable piece of sophisticated technology the Starfarer is also ferrying her usual passengers, civilians mostly but also some marines and Starfleet officers / enlisted between assignments and on home for leave.

While en route the Starfarer comes under attack by an unknown aggressor. The ship takes a beating as she was originally built for civilian purposes, she is not equipped with weapons, only shields. During this attack the time drive is activated and the Starfarer and her passengers are flung far back in time.

The survivors on board pull together, tending to the injured, seeing to the dead and sorting out their own tentative chain of command from the hodge-podge of civilians, fleeties and marines. In some cases this means putting aside any fleet vs marines vs civilian rivalries and learning to work together in order to survive wherever or whenever they may be...

Which translates to --> heaps and heaps of character development and interaction.
