Challenger: The Sky’s The Limit

First Contact comes in all shapes and sizes, but Captain Burton never knew it would end up him giving the one order he promised himself he wouldn't issue.

Mission Description

After a few weeks of exploring, Starfleet sends Challenger on another diplomatic mission. This time they must make contact with the Deltan race. Meeting these friendly people seems promising until their old rivals, the Carreons launch an attack that cripples not just the Deltan people but Challenger too. Forced to defend themselves, Challenger and its crew are torn apart across new worlds, with some of them finding themselves on a place where the cities live in the skies.


Dedicated to the players of Star Trek: Challenger, a role-playing forum-based simulation, who rose to the challenge of making it fun!
