Star Trek: Civilizations is a fan fiction series jointly written by Tigerstyle and Hyperion.

The stories are set during the late 23rd century and focus on the crew of two ships: the Avenger-class USS Valiant and the Enterprise II-class USS Hyperion. Posted to Star Station Inflexible, a Federation outpost located near the Klingon Neutral Zone, these men and women must confront challenges both mundane and extraordinary as the galactic peace crumbles around them.

Because the series attempts to provide readers with an accurate and compelling cross-section of Starfleet, it features a truly ensemble cast, one drawn from all corners of Federation society. Its goal is to create a grittier, more realistic interpretation of Star Trek that remains as faithful as possible to the original.
