Star Trek, The Edge of Darkness is a Play By EMail (PBEM) Role-playing Game (RPG) taking place in the Star Trek universe of 2387. A member of Bravo Fleet's Task Force 72, the USS Wallace is an interactive, collaborative writing community. Assuming a more risqué approach, players will have the opportunity to explore a much darker side of the Star Trek universe where players will experience deep-rooted character development, interaction and plot progression in a continuous story-arc pertaining to a region of space where the Wallace will encounter the Cardassians, Breen and Ferengi on a very regular basis.
The Wallace is a mission versatile, yet very small ship with a crew of about 15, mostly, enlisted personnel. Due to its compact and efficient design, the Wallace can remain out of port for no more than three months at a time before resupply is absolutely necessary. The crew won't have the opportunity to enjoy a holodeck or other recreation facilities, as they are non-existent on board with the private comforts of home a fleeting joke. Those that serve on board are here for the singular purpose of completing the mission at hand.
