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: Silent Infestation

While en route to the Devoras System to deliver some cargo and supplies, the Imperiax receives a distress call from a Reman colony located 13.6 light-years away. As they are seemingly the only starship in the area, Commander Volus has the ship diverted to the Xolecis System to investigate. The only communication heard from the colony since the distress call is three words - resistance is futile.

» Surgery Tomorrow

Posted on 18 Jan 2015 @ 9:02pm by Major Tanjien Dar in General News

Well, my wrist surgery is tomorrow. I’m not asking for an LOA (I will if I need to), but I won’t likely be able to post at all tomorrow or Tuesday. I should be back to the world of the living on Wednesday, though slow and sloppy typing with one hand.

I did just type the OOC one-handed, so while slow, it is clearly doable.

Hello all,

Andrew F here, writer of MAJ Dar. Just wanted to give a bit of an update.

About two-months-ago I fell and injured my left wrist and was told at the time that it was a bad sprain. Well, it has not gotten any better and yesterday I went to see a hand specialist and sure enough, one of the small bones in the wrist was fractured.

To make things more interesting, because I am getting older (47), these things are a bit harder to fix and I am borderline at the age where they choose to just fuse everything solid (age 50). So, I went for an MRI and CT scan this morning to see if the downstream side of the bone is still getting blood, or if it has died in the last two months. Best case, they screw the bone back together and I regain 80% or so of my range of motion. Worst case they flip some healthy bone over from further up the wrist and move into the place of the (hopefully not) dead bone, then screw it all together giving at best 70% range of motion and less strength and stability.

Either way, I’m looking at surgery in the next few weeks (sooner the better), and then probably 3 months in a case.

I don’t plan on leaving any of my sims, but will be writing one-handed, so expect slightly (hopefully not) shorter posts and lots of typos that I will do my borderline obsessive-compulsive best to NOT correct.


» Happy New Year!

Posted on 02 Jan 2015 @ 3:40pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Just a short message from me today. I'd like to wish everyone on the Imperiax a Happy New Year!

As it is now January 2nd, and after the holidays, it's time for us all to get back into the swing of things and post, post, post! I'm happy to report that you guys met my challenge last month and we got a total of five posts out. Good job guys. I know it's a bit more difficult right now as with Patrick on LOA we're essentially just the five of us getting through this. I know we can do it though and I know as well that we can do better. I'd like to see EVERYONE put in a good effort this month so that we can get another five posts out and maybe even more!

I mentioned in the OOC post that there've been some changes to TF93 with the coming of the new year. For the most part it doesn't really affect us. What might possibly affect us is the direction they wish to take the Romulans going forward. While my storyline idea was approved by the Bravo Fleet CO, it appears that all of it might be up in the air now with the changes in our Task Force. It realy sucks but I'm going to try to make the best out of the situation and push my ideas forward. I don't want the Romulans to be stood on like they have been up to this point so you guys have my work that I'm going to do my best to have a presence with how they are explored from this point forward.

I have two positive things to bring up on this second day of the year. The first of which is that our new TFCO has said that he'd help me with recruitment so hopefully we can get some new blood in here.. new blood that will stay. Secondly, I've figured out what I want to do with the forums and will be working on those in the coming days. Maybe by intermingling amongst my other ships can we find some new players to join our ranks.

I look forward to seeing what 2015 brings for us! We are currently the only alien simm in all of Bravo Fleet and we continue to be awesome! Good job everyone. :D

» Happy Holidays!

Posted on 20 Dec 2014 @ 1:16pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hey everyone! So as the holidays are creeping up on us, it's obvious that some of us are having a bit of trouble keeping up with our posts. It's a busy time! It's perfectly alright. During this time don't feel as if you need to reply to posts but please do so if you can. I do expect people to get back to replies after Christmas though.

And with all of that being said, Karen (Dhael) and I would like to wish everyone a very happy holidays in whichever form you wish to celebrate it! Be safe and have fun!

» A New Month!

Posted on 01 Dec 2014 @ 5:20pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hey everyone!

It's December. Already! This month can be a little hectic for people because of the holidays. That's completely O.K. Real life always comes first. The last couple of months have been a little bit slow for us. I'd like to see us try and change that starting right now. I think this is incredibly important as we're only six players on the Imperiax. Things will inevitably take longer because of that but I'd like to try and avoid having year-long missions. Nobody likes those kinds of missions.

Our current mission isn't meant to last that long so I'd like to try and encourage everyone to put in a good effort this month with posts. Try to get to them as quickly as you can. By the end of the month I'd like to see us have at least 5 posts sent out. We already have 1 so that's a good start. Let's do four more. This includes me. I'm most likely going to write a post or two with Volus on the ship. Everyone needs to be pulling their weight though. If you need to be away for whatever reason, and if it's for a long time, then please request an LOA. It's extremely difficult to do stuff because of our numbers and it's never fun when you expect something from someone but aren't getting it. Communication is the key.

Anyways.. that's the end of my lecture. :P Have fun. This mission should be a blast. Let's crank out some posts
