Jolan tru, citizen of the Empire.

Welcome aboard the Imperial Romulan Vessel Imperiax! Much has happened recently within the Empire that affects us all. Romulus and Remus have been destroyed and we currently have no Praetor to lead us. The realms within our borders are in a state of chaos with people from all sides vying for power. It is a turbulent time indeed.

While for most of us our homeworld is now lost, it is important that we continue to hold onto the ideals and philosophies that have made the Empire strong for so many centuries.

In the wake of our most desperate hour, the Romulan Guard has recommissioned some of their older and partially damaged starships for immediate use. They have also recalled all available and retired military personnel to be deployed on these vessels immediately. Order must be maintained.

It is a difficult time for anyone with Romulan blood in their veins but rest assured, that this is not the end of the Empire. We are Romulan. We will prevail. We will rise from the ashes of our fallen comrades and become much stronger and more feared than ever before.

The IRV Imperiax has been assigned to Task Force 93 which operates within a vast area of Romulan Space but also encompasses a portion of the diminished Romulan Neutral Zone and Federation Space. The sim itself takes place in the year 2387 which is eight years after Star Trek Nemesis.

Here at the Imperiax, we value quality over quantity. If you're interested in trying out something new, have the time at your disposal, want to be part of some engaging and thrilling stories, and most importantly, if you like everything that you've read about the ship so far, then why not give a Romulan ship a chance? Join us on the Imperiax today!

Current Mission: Revealing Truths

Subcommander Dhael has received a cryptic message from an old contact within the reunification movement, indicating that he knows the truth of what really happened at Hobus. Ever-wanting to know this truth, Volus allows Dhael to meet with this contact while the Imperiax maintains a hidden position away from the rendez-vous. During the meeting, Dhael realizes that not everyone wants the truth to come out.

Posted on 02 Nov 2015 @ 8:53pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Jolan tru everyone! Just a few small bits and pieces to share with you today.

Firstly, I've awarded our player of the month award for October to Varuh (played by Michael)! His optimism, his desire to do posts and work with others is very nice to see and have. He's been a cornerstone for this simm since he joined three years ago. In October, he worked hard on a number of posts and I know that he has some fun stuff planned for the weeks to come. Congrats Varuh!

On a completely separate note, if you haven't heard the news yet, it appears as if Star Trek will be returning to TV in January 2017! This *could* have implications for us in the long run depending on what they do however until we know more there's not a whole lot that we can do other than keep writing. The crux of the problem is whether or not the new series will take place in the Prime Timeline, as well as if Romulus and Remus are destroyed. Whatever the case may be, we'll just have to figure things out once we have more information. Still, it's good news nonetheless and I'm hoping we'll get another great series.

» The Imperiax Won An Award!

Posted on 29 Oct 2015 @ 10:18am by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Sim Announcement

Good morning everyone!

It's not very often that I get to share some good news with all of you. Today is such a day where I can. The Imperiax has been recognized by the makers of Nova (the content management system that is used on this site as well as many others) and we've been given an award.

Behold! The 'Outstanding Presentation' Award.

I do find it somewhat ironic that we won this award now of all times. If only because I've been planning to work on a new skin to freshen this place up a bit. We've had this one for three years and I think it's time for an upgrade in our look. That is still planned although it'll probably come to fruition only in the coming weeks.

So anyways. Yay! I'm happy someone has noticed us.

Keep up the good work everyone.

» Episode #6 Is Here!

Posted on 01 Oct 2015 @ 6:08pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Jolan tru everyone!

So as I promised yesterday, Episode #6 - Revealing Truths is now open. Any new posts should be done under that mission. This mission will take place about a month or so after our last mission and we've finally fallen into the year 2388! Hooray. It's about time really.. we're pretty behind the Bravo Fleet storyline but no worries. We'll get there. I have good things planned. 'Silent Infestation' is still open as well. There are two posts that need to go out before I close it off. Hopefully we get there soon. Anyone who took part in that mission has received a mission badge for it which is now attached to your bios :D.

I also want to take this opportunity to announce that I've selected Penny, who plays Decurion Rhhaein, as September's player of the month! Congrats! I know it's been hard for you to get into the mission but you're making progress. Keep at it and I hope to see more from you as we move forward.

Now on to the goodies. Synopsis for Episode #6: Revealing Truths

12th d. of 1st m. of Fire, y. 1940 AS. Subcommander Dhael has received a cryptic message from an old contact within the reunification movement, indicating that he knows the truth of what really happened at Hobus. Ever-wanting to know this truth, Volus allows Dhael to meet with this contact while the Imperiax maintains a hidden position away from the rendez-vous. During the meeting, Dhael realizes that not everyone wants the truth to come out.

This is just a small taste of an over-arching storyline that we are beginning which will involve us figuring out what really happened at Hobus.. as well as 'fixing things' within the Romulan Star Empire.

Here are a few important bits of information for this mission:
- We are picking up about a month or so after our last mission and are finally in the year 2388.
- The events of this mission take place a few months before the Romulan / Cardassian conflict in the TF47/93 storyline.
- We are starting on MD1 and will be traveling until MD4.
- Rejik has been in the brig all this time. He's being fed only minimal energy, enough to keep him alive.
- Commander Volus would have requested that Rejik's being held on the Imperiax be kept from the Romulan Guard at this time until it is decided what will be done with him (this will happen in one of the first posts).

Aside from anything else you guys might come up with during this mission, here are some plotlines that I'd like to see explored in this mission:
- Volus / Aelona's working relationship.
- Dhael and whatever (this is your mission :P)
- Varuh, Lyirru, Isha, Rhhaein and the Mortis.
- Rejik, Varuh, Isha, Dar and Sienae (to handle Rejik's re-integration as an officer once we get to that point).
- Valkis, Grax, Lyirru and Rhhaein will end up forming as an away team (unless things are changed).

Other than that, this is a fresh start for alot of you. As always, if anyone wants to do a joint post with Volus or any of my other characters please let me know. I'd be more than happy to do stuff! Post, post, post! Let's get this mission off on the right foot ! :D Let's try to get 10 posts out in October. I know we can do it. We have before.

I think that's all I have to say for now. Thanks everyone for staying with us until the end of our last mission. Let's make our next mission better!

» Happy Birthday Imperiax!

Posted on 15 Sep 2015 @ 5:56pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hello everyone! Let's all wish the Imperiax a happy 3rd birthday!

Three years ago today I began this simm and I had no idea that it would have evolved over the years the way that it has. It first started with myself and Karen (Dhael) but we quickly gained a handful of members, two of which who are still with us today. Thank you to Andreas (Valkis) and Michael (Varuh) for your dedication to this ship. I can't tell you enough how much it's appreciated. I'd also like to thank everyone who has joined us since the beginning. Thank you to those who've decided to stay with us over the past months and years. Without players, the Imperiax wouldn't really go anywhere. Since I've been a CO in Bravo Fleet, there hasn't been another alien simm that has been as dedicated as this one. While we might not get recognized for our efforts, please know that I do and you guys mean alot to me. :D

Anyhow, that's it from me. Grab some Romulan Ale, hug your favorite Reman and all hail the Romulan Star Empire!

Jolan tru!

Posted on 14 Sep 2015 @ 7:01pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Out of Character

Hey everyone! I'm back from my two week LOA. Karen (Dhael) should be back on Wednesday. She works crazy hours so won't be able to tackle posts until then. I want to try and finish this mission this week. We're wrapping up our final post for this mission right now. If anyone has posts that they need to complete, please do so as quickly as possible! Also, tomorrow is a special day for this ship! :D More to come on Tuesday!
