The Star Trek: Shadow Operations Play By Email (PBEM) simulation game, approaching our 3rd year, takes place in the 24th century, running parallel to the events in the current season of Deep Space Nine. The game revolves around a highly specialized branch of Starfleet Intelligence called Shadow Operations. This new branch is a special forces/intelligence gathering/counter terrorism unit developed by Starfleet to deal with growing tensions between the Federation and its neighbors. The player characters begin as recent graduates of Starfleet Academy who have volunteered for the Shadow Ops program. They will go right from the academy to the Shadow Ops training school at an undisclosed location. There they will complete several training assignments before being posted to their first assignment as Shadow operatives.
Assignments will be to a specialized Starfleet ship designed for spying and covert operations, or to a space station somewhere near Klingon space from which covert missions will be launched, and there may even be some individual missions for one or two characters to undertake. Characters can be of any Federation race featured on Star Trek, the most well-known being Humans, Vulcans, Betazoids, Andorians, Bolians, Trill or Bajoran. Some players may also chose to play offbeat characters like Klingons, Romulans or Cardassians.
