The Federation lost. We're all that's left.

Klingon War



In 2257, the USS Discovery was unable to stop Starfleet’s last-ditch plan to destroy Qo’noS. Starfleet had hoped that this would force the Klingons to stop, but it had the opposite effect. Klingons invaded Earth, resulting in a three-week war that left billions dead and ended the Federation.

Starfleet activated an emergency protocol, establishing Remnant Command on a moon in the M-11 system. Fifty starships gathered while the Federation dissolved. Starfleet reorganized itself into a privateer organization with a singular goal: free Earth.

Twenty three years have passed and it’s now 2280. Starfleet’s numbers have dwindled, its credibility all but destroyed, and much of its officers have lost respect for the organization, biding their time for opportunities with other governments. But in the darkness a beacon has emerged. The USS Lexington, one of 12 Constitution-class starships thought to have been lost during the war, has been found. Repairs have been affected, and now she stands as the flagship of a once-revered Federation.

The road to Earth will be long and arduous, and most likely doomed to fail. But if they succeed… then humanity might just have a chance to survive and reclaim their birthright.

» Upcoming Migration

Posted on 05 Sep 2020 @ 2:27pm by Captain Martin Collins in Website Update

When I started up the Black Hawk about 6 years ago, I could not have imagined the wondrous journey that would follow. Not only have I been through two fleets, we have gone from extraordinary situations from a hosting standpoint as well.

We started with free, as do most. Then, when we implemented mediawiki, I had to start paying to cover the utilized bandwidth. It started as an account upgrade, and then to a full-blown domain.

What I did not anticipate at the time was that my simming "career" would take on other interests as well. I've managed a TOS Movie Era sim (USS Delphinus) and now a DSC/TOS alternate universe era sim (USS Lexington) all while starting to entertain the idea of a Starbase sim set aboard Gamma Command with Admiral O'Connell in the Gamma Quadrant.

To avoid large hosting bills each month, I've kept my resources consolidated with the Black Hawk. My wallet enjoys this, but my vanity doesn't. It's a bit unfair to the Lexington to have lexington.ussblackhawk.com as its domain. Therefore, I have begun some changes to the infrastructure.

The first step was to purchase a new domain, which is anurasims.com. Anura is the "order" for amphibians, specially frogs. Kinda fitting for a guy whose avatar is Kermit.

The next step will be to migrate all of my sims, including the Lexington, over to this domain. The downside to this is that we will no longer be using ussblackhawk.com. I will set up redirects when the time comes and we'll have a period of time when the site won't be accessible while the transition is underway.

I do not have a time scheduled for this transition, but I will be doing it during the month of September. I will provide ample notice when when the site will be down. Once complete, all you'll notice is that we just have a new web address. Everything else will play out as normal.

Thank you for your patience during this transition, and most importantly, thank you so much for all of your wonderful support. The Lexington is an incredible place thanks to players like you!

Please welcome Kibyr, our new Science Specialist... who just so happens to be an Orion. And on the Lexington. And trying to steal the Lexington.

Gee, this is a match made in heaven, isn't it?

Welcome!
