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: The Blood of Eternity



Shortly after the destruction of Romulus and Remus, a rogue House within the Klingon Empire attacked and occupied the Romulan colony of Anaeth. While Anaeth initially appears as a simple agricultural world on the surface, Romulan scientists have been working on something in secret underground; something that would be life-changing for ordinary citizens in the Empire. Times have changed though. After Senator Vorelian was murdered by a Starfleet representative on Algorab, the Romulan Government demanded that all Federation forces leave Romulan territory. Shortly thereafter, the Treaty of Nelvana was signed and many of the planets along the Romulan / Klingon border were simply given to the Federation. Anaeth now lies within Federation territory. As a result of the chaos in Romulan Space following the Hobus Supernova, no military campaigns were undertaken to retake Anaeth. Now that it is no longer a Romulan colony, it has become especially important that the research is retrieved by any means necessary. For if the Klingons or the Federation got a hold of that research it would potentially tip the balance of power in their favour. With the Romulan Star Empire at its most vulnerable in centuries, such an outcome would be disastrous. It won't be permitted to happen.

Hey everyone! So it seems that there's quite a bit of news that's just been thrown at us this past week. Some of you already know about it.. but I've been biding my time trying to get level-headed about it all. Basically, in early 2388, the Romulan Star Empire and the Cardassian Union are going to be going to war. Here is an excerpt about it as well as a link to the forum post.

LINK TO POST


Major Announcement: War Declared between Cardassian Union and Romulan Star Empire!

Throughout 2387, the Order of 12 began to really make their presence known in the Gavarian Corridor, with strategic attacks upon Starfleet and Cardassian assets throughout the corridor, including Kepler Station, Deep Space 10 and the USS Patriot. But towards the end of the year, they planned something considerably larger, and more widespread; war.

In the hopes that a war between the Cardassian Union and the Romulan Star Empire might lead to the Cardassian military returning to its prior size and reputation, and with the belief that the resulting action would require the United Federation of Planets to withdraw its Starfleet personnel in order to remain a neutral party, the Order staged an attack upon several key Romulan militarized locations within the corridor along the Romulan border, using vessels acquired from the different military Order’s and posing as ships from the 7th Order.

Outraged at these attacks and not settling for the excuses of the Cardassian government, the Romulan Senate approved a military action against a key Cardassian Starbase, Senk Nor. On Stardate 65106.02 (February 8th, 2388), a large Romulan force decloaked and attacked the Nor Class Starbase. Attacking the facility by surprise, the Romulan forces quickly disabled the weapons system on Senk Nor, leaving the station defenceless to the first wave of the attack. The attack focused on Senk Nor resulted in heaviest Cardassian casualties of the multiple attacks, and in the destruction of 2 of the Romulan birds-of-prey. In at least 4 other staged attacks, small fleets of smaller Romulan ships and attack shuttles/runabouts were used to attack relatively undefended Cardassian colonies and posts along and near the border with the neutral zone.

Fearing losing complete control of their border territories and of course to save face in the Galactic community, the Cardassian Union responded by assembling the 7th Order, located around the Corridor. With a declaration of war, the 7th Order launched a massive strike against planetary defences and a bombardment of military targets on the second planet of the Calsaria System in Romulan space. The interim Romulan Senate considered the attacks to be both unprovoked and unfathomable. Seizing the chance to gain control over large numbers of the war ships left in the Star Navy, the Tal Shiar were able to convince the Senate to answer the Cardassian call, and to declare a state of war to exist between the two governments.

In the days immediately after the attacks on Senk Nor and Calsaria, both the Romulan and Cardassian governments dispatched their ambassadors to the Federation with a warning; if Starfleet or the Federation provided any military assistance to either party, it would be seen as an act of war. With no choice but to adhere to the warnings of both governments, and under great political pressure from the Romulans, the Federation withdrew from the Gavarian Armistice Agreement and the Gavarian Corridor once again became a hostile area of space. Unwilling to surrender Federation and Starfleet interests in the region, and no longer bound by the Armistice, Starfleet began to bolster their own forces in the corridor, with Strategic Operations in the area falling under the purview of Admiral James Ryan at Deep Space 10.


There's a bit more to it than that which you can read at the link I posted above. Now, I'm not going to offer my personal opinions on this matter in this news post as I'm a firm believer of pressing forward no matter what is thrown our way. We have stories to tell and we're going to tell those stories.

Some of you might have noticed that the whole war thing does say it's for Task Force 47. You'll know that we're in Task Force 93. Regardless, as we are a Romulan ship it will still affect us. With that being said, it's not going to affect us for some time. Our current mission, which I'm hoping to wrap up by the end of June is set at the end of 2387. Our next one is also set at the end of 2387. I think the one after that will finally take us into 2388. I think we have one particular mission planned for that one, but after that I'll be open to any Romulan / Cardassian War stories if we decide to pursue that route. It's totally up to you guys since you're my crew!

Anyhow, so that's that. I did also want to mention that I do need your help. Right now, we essentially only have four active players. Three of our players are currently on LOA. I need ideas as to how we can potentially recruit more. I have an ad up on the BF forums but it doesn't seem to draw any interest. Does anyone have any ideas as to any other avenues we could pursue in getting more people? Do you know of anyone who would be interested in playing on a Romulan ship? Please let me know. I have no intention ever of letting the Imperiax die even if it remains the four of us (me, Dhael, Varuh and Valkis) playing.. but I would like to have more people.

Last but not least, let's put in a good effort in June to finish off this mission. We're almost there. Once we get there we can start our next one involving the Remans and the Borg.


» Happy Holidays From Me To You!

Posted on 18 Dec 2013 @ 12:40pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Seasons greetings crew of the Imperiax! I would just like to take a few moments here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays / Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year from both me and Karen (Dhael). As it is a busy time, between December 20th and January 2nd you guys won't be required to work on posts if you do not have the time to do so. It would be cool if you still could but it's understandable if you can't as family is more important than anything else. During this time, both Karen and I will still be available as a computer is always near to us. So, if anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to continue sending them our way. Otherwise, have a great holidays and be safe!

J.P. & Karen


» Happy 1st Birthday Imperiax!

Posted on 15 Sep 2013 @ 12:52pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hey everyone!

Today is an important day in the life of our ship. One year ago, today, the Imperiax was approved to be a ship in Bravo Fleet and recruitment began. So, that makes this day the Imperiax's official birthday! Hooray!

Due to the alien nature of this sim, I have always maintained that I would run it even if it was only me and my wife (Dhael) on it. Luckily I have a handful of you along for the ride. I am extremely grateful to the time and effort you guys have put into this sim and I hope that the same has been shown from me.

Here's to another great year with more missions for the Imperiax! May she serve proudly amidst the stars of the Romulan Empire.

» Interlude Over! Sort Of...

Posted on 17 Aug 2013 @ 2:55pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Sim Announcement

Hey guys! Today is the day! As both Valkis and Varuh are now back from their mini-vacations I'm going to go ahead and end the 'Interlude On Artaleirh' mission. Now, with that being said, the mission itself is going to remain open because there are four posts currently being worked on that need to be finished. I'm giving you guys until next Saturday to complete them, if they are not finished by then I'm permitting the other members of the post to wrap it up and then post it. There's no reason on Earth that replies should take over two weeks to make unless you're dying or in the hospital. Hopefully nobody here is experiencing either of those. Those who have taken part in the Interlude mission will get a shiny new commendation which I will sort out in a few minutes.

Even though the Interlude mission is staying 'open', we ARE going to be starting our new mission today which is titled "The Blood of Eternity". For a description of what this mission is about head on over to the main page of the Imperiax site or to the 'Our Adventures' tab. It'll be there for you to read. I will be starting a post at some point within the next hour or so which will essentially be a mission briefing for our senior officers so everyone will be able to take part in that.

Just an FYI. There are two posts being worked on by Dhael and myself for the new mission which NEED to go out before anyone else does a post. They will set the stage for what is to come and should be sent out today... so nobody jump the gun and post anything please.

I think that's pretty much it. Thank you everyone for your continued patience and I hope you continue to enjoy it here. Just a little word of warning that I will be a bit more pushy during joint posts this mission because I don't want a repeat of 'The Flames of Romulus' which took far too long to complete (8 months). So don't take it personally if I pick on you.. it's all in the name of making sure this place stays alive.
