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.
The Romulan Imperial State (or simply, Imperial State) is a major regional power which existed throughout much of the 2380s as a separate entity in opposition to the Romulan Star Empire. It encompassed a considerable number of frontier Romulan worlds as well as the people who inhabited them. The Imperial State is known for its less xenophobic character and policies which developed increasingly friendly relations with the Federation.
The fall of the Senate created a power vacuum which brought chaos to the Romulan Star Empire as supply lines throughout the region were brought to a near stand-still and colonies more distant from the Romulan hoome system found themselves completely cut off from all support. Several groups vied for power including those led by two of the conspirators who helped bring Shinzon to power. Senator Tal'Aura was eventually named Praetor with the backing of Proconsul Tomalak while Commander Donatra retained control and support over much of the Imperial Fleet.
The power struggle between Donatra and Tal'Aura continued for about a year until December 2380 when Donatra and her supporters finally withdrew from the Romulan core systems. Donatra consolidated her powerbase on Achernar Prime and declared the existence of the Romulan Imperial State with herself as its Empress. The inclusion of Xanitla, Ralatak, and Virinat as official members of the Imperial State shortly thereafter provided a means by which Donatra was able to win the hearts of Romulans living beyond the Star Empire's core worlds.
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:
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:
