|STAR TREK RPG|
Independence Fleet (or IDF) is a Star Trek simming / Role Play By E-mail (RPBE) club that was founded on July 4th, 2001 by James D. West, Charles Star, and Robert Seldon. It features starships and starbases specializing in exploration, defense, special operations, and more. It also maintains an open door policy allowing players of all interests, ages, and abilities to participate for any period of time desired.
IDF is one of the progenitors of the open role playing concept, and is well known for its decentralized model of giving individual sim COs great flexibility in running their games. It has been one of the most influential groups in the simming community since 2010.
