Welcome to the USS Charon
The IRW Aylhr is a D'Dherex dreadnaught modified for a variety of roles within the Beta Quadrant. I am Riov Rhae'go tr'Neyl, Commanding Officer of the IRW Aylhr, many consider me to be quite the outcast and are still amazed that I landed in the command throne of such a notable ship. The story of my miraculous ascension is long so I’ll save it for later. My Executive Officer is erie'Riov T’Imina t’Verelan. We have our disagreements but it could be worse- she could be a wretched Klingon.
This is a comprehensive website for the IRW Aylhr, her journeys, and her crew. Here you can find lists and references of both major and minor characters that make appearances on the Aylhr. Our Imperial Databank houses all information about what it means to be a Rihannsu and other information regarding the Romulan Star Empire. We utilize the NOVA play-by-post system for our writing and you can find that here Aylhr NOVA. Hopefully, everyone, not just the crew of the IRW Aylhr, will find our website's resources helpful.
If you find that the Aylhr interests you, please feel free to join us, we're always looking for great writers. Go to our join page and apply today!
The USS Charon
With a crew complement of around 350 personnel the USS Charon is filled with a mix of people from different planets and cultures. Because of the joint exploration mission currently underway with the Romulan Star Empire a small portion of the compliment consists Romulans personnel (approximately 30).

Current Plot: Penumbra
With the construction of new IRW Aylhr nearing completion, Galae'EnRiov Shiarrael t'Rehu visits the Jezerek shipyards and tours the new vessel. During her visit to Jezerek Shiarrael uncovers a conspiracy among some of the Galae's command staff to remove a candidate from consideration for commanding the Aylhr. That candidate? The son of the disgraced former Galae'EnRiov Ameh'ha t'Neyl. Seeing the situation as an attempt by the Zorek clan to exert influence in the Galae she decides to appoint Riov Rhae'go tr'Neyl to command the Aylhr over the objections.
Meanwhile, on the planet eternity in neutral zone, the powerful Zorek Senator D'Nal tr'Parneas is murdered while visiting the war grave of his sons. News of the incident is suppressed until more information about the incident can be gathered. Fearing a greater plot the commander of the fifth fleet, EnRiov Lyna t'Hnea, dispatches the newly minted IRW Aylhr and her crew to investigate the matter quietly.
We sim in the UCIP Universe whose history spans over two decades and while it may deviate from the recent movies and Star Trek Online game it makes up for it in both depth and creativity.
We also have a strong focus on the Romulans and Vulcans (not our only focus) but we do explore the depth and histories of these two species in detail. The Romulans we portray are based off the Rihannsu novel series by Diane Duane and the Vulcans are based off a mixture of ST lore from the series to the novel Spock's World. Aside from those two species we also have members who play out the Federation Council. The treacherous inner workings of the Romulan Empire. The constant obfuscation of the Cardassian Union and the raw brutality of the Klingon Empire.

Current Universe Storyline
It has been fifteen years since the Romulan x Klingon conflict. Under the current regime, stability has returned to the Star Empire for the past decade. Yet beneath the shadows of Empire, internal forces seeking power are slowly brooding, hoping to erode the political dominance of the vast AAnikh coalition. Further from home the suspicious death of a powerful Senator on the planet of Eternity adds to the concern within the great political bodies. How long will these forces remain in the shadows and when will they act?
Meanwhile, a young scion of the AAnikh clan secretly returns to Romulus to further his power abroad. Unbeknownst to him, his arrival has set off a chain of events that will leave the Empire changed forever.
NPCs (Non Player Characters) are a core of any simulation/RPG that wants to have a stable amount of depth. The Aylhr has a plethora of NPCs that interact with the crew on a daily basis (NPCs that are part of the crew). We also have NPCs that are geared towards developing situations and plots. I’ve split these NPCs into two groups: Major Characters who make several appearances and Minor Characters who only make short appearances at random intervals.
Also, the Aylhr often has guests from other games in UCIP who participate for a short time as a plot-centric character. While they are not NPCs they are also not members of the Aylhr so they are listed under the Guest Category.
We have provided a plethora of resources from open archives (we're not scared to keep our email lists open so people can see our quality- if a game keeps theirs private...run!) We also provide a live discord as a means of communication and you can just visit us in the #irw-aylhr room (though during the weekdays we usually don't appear until later in the afternoon pacific time).
If you do join us for a live chat (awesome!) We do ask that you respect other members in the discord chat room.
