The colony ship finished its growing cycle just hours before the planet killers converged on the last remaining system in the once mighty Yang Zutal Empire. With little time to spare, the fleet of remaining ships and the colony ship set a course out of the galaxy.

Welcome to the Horizon Fleet Wiki Database. Our current simm year is 2394.

The Eighth "Horizon" Fleet was founded in February 2007 as a simming fleet which seeks to provide a safe and enjoyable environment in which members can express their creativity, engage in social activity, and explore the reaches of the Star Trek dream. Through an ever increasing system of development, support, and respect, this fleet seeks quality, excellence, and the promise of striving towards the horizon of mankind's imagination.

We believe it is important to foster greater unity and expand the creativity of our members by providing them with a good source of reference information. The Horizon Fleet Wiki is meant to be a resource for any member of the fleet or the greater simming community and is maintained by the Cultural Archival Society. Any member of Horizon Fleet may add or edit articles and information so long as they abide by the Horizon Fleet Wiki Policies and Procedures. If you would like to start contributing but aren't sure where to begin, take a look at our stub pages, wanted pages, and any listing marked by our maintenance templates as incomplete, non-existent, or needing improvement.

Horizon Fleet welcomes you! Feel free to have a look around and contact a member of the Eighth Fleet Admiralty or the Cultural Archival Society if you have any questions.

The Wright-class Starship Development Project began in the mid-2380s at the Aldani Fleet Yards. Raids on merchant shipping and conflict with Elyshan factions were creating a great deal of concern amongst the Eighth "Horizon" Fleet admiralty. It was around this time that Vice Admiral Chris Manley, then Director of Research & Development, authorized the development of a starship design capable of escorting supply convoys, supporting Starfleet operations, as well as garrisoning starbases and other Federation installations.

Lieutenant Commander Sean Nelson was chosen to lead the design team while personnel from vessels and installations throughout the Eighth Fleet were called upon to provide consultation for the project. Team members started with what they knew of the thirty year old Defiant-class starship which had long since expanded from its initial role as a purely combat vessel. They then brought together lessons learned from Voyager's time in the Delta Quadrant and recent encounters with the Elyshans. An increasing awareness of the Yang Zutal only served to underscore the growing sense of urgency felt by many members of the team.

Fleet Canon Portal

Fleet Canon is an important part of community development within the Eighth "Horizon" Fleet. The members of the fleet work hard to ensure that entries are created which add an impresive and unique flavor to our universe, tailored for Horizon Fleet, and recorded here on the Horizon Fleet Wiki. See below for just a selection of the items which have been deemed Canon by the Horizon Fleet community:

Cultural Archival Society

The Cultural Archival Society was originally founded as a joint venture between the Eighth Fleet Department of Research & Development and the Daystrom Institute as a means to study previously unknown or little-known races, both living and extinct. It is a blended group of Starfleet and civilian specialists tasked with the compilation of data from this research for the Federation Archives. Like academic societies throughout history, the Cultural Archival Society relies upon an atmosphere in which ideas may be openly exchanged without fear of condemnation or reprisal.

The Cultural Archival Society has the primary responsibility for the creation and maintenance of In-Character articles and information regarding species, governments, planets, locations, ships, and persons of note so as to enhance our understanding of the universe in which we engage in our simming endeavors. The Cultural Archival Society consists of the following members:
