Welcome to the 5th Special Operations Division
5th Special Operations Division (5th SOD) is an exploration-oriented fleet located in unexplored space beyond the Zenas Expanse. After Starfleet discovered an Iconian gateway in this region and took note of the high density of M-class planets and interstellar phenomena, Somnium Station was built and the 5th SOD was reassigned there from their role in the now-concluded Klingon War. The 5th maintains an alliance with the Romulan Republic and has an embassy on New Romulus. The 9th Romulan Republic Talon is a small cohort of Romulan officers and ship captains that serve alongside the 5th SOD and their mission, but do not report to Starfleet.

The Iconian gateway located near Somnium was discovered in a damaged state and is inoperable most of the time - while Federation technology is not yet capable of repairing it, the gate does still come online for eighteen hours every nine days, allowing the 5th regular but limited access to Federation space. As Somnium is located 747 light years away from Earth, when the gate is closed it is out of reach of Federation space and all known species. As a result, the 5th is primarily on its own and must be self-sufficient in terms of both resources and defense.

As a fleet, 5th SOD focuses on roleplay and encourages unique characters that can be developed through active storylines. We welcome both first-time and experienced roleplayers. Our set-up makes it easy for players to have characters that are members of Starfleet, whether as ship captains or starbase personnel and of all career tracks, Romulan Republic officers, traders, or other civilians that would reasonably be found on a starbase. We are looking for mature players who want to roleplay in an atmosphere that is in keeping with Gene Roddenberry’s vision of Star Trek. Our fleet is organized into structured, ranked roleplay positions, to provide an immersive Star Trek experience.
