Kepler Station started in February 2009 as a play-by-forum game. In November 2016, a reboot was necessary and we took the opportunity to change over to a nova-based website.

In character (IC), Kepler Station is a space station located at the outskirts of the Alpha Quadrant in a region known as The Expanse. Its primary mission is Research and Development (R&D). The crew consists of multiple project teams (up to 25 teams/projects in total), each of which has a focus on a specific discovery, scientific process, or other experiment. Kepler Station offers a controlled and secure environment to allow for these projects to be worked on without interference.

Depending on the project size, teams can be as small as two scientists or a much larger team with multiple specialists. Because of the sensitive nature of the research on the station, all personnel must have undergone a thorough security screening prior to assignment to the station. All project areas require security clearance to access and may be restricted to only members of the particular project team.

The crew size of Kepler is 150, making it a rather small and close-knit community. The year is 2387, twelve years after the events of the Dominion War.
