Borderlands is a collection of Star Trek-based play-by-email roleplaying groups, home to seven RPGs known as "duty stations," both new and long-standing, with a collective setting in the Delta Quadrant, some thirty years after the USS Voyager returned to Earth.

In Borderlands, participants may play as members of Starfleet, join the Romulan Star Empire, serve aboard a civilian merchant ship, or unite with a rebel faction against the Federation. Crew-members play as part of a team in a wide range of missions, from science to exploration to full-scale battles.

Borderlands claims to offer members "the most realistic and exciting PBEM experience that can be found on the internet, while providing a friendly online community". Borderlands has existed in one form or another since 1993 and remains active. Players can work their way up from ensign to captain.
