188604 follows Uso and her crew as they work to conquer a backwater world and turn it into a force on the galactic stage. Players work together, largely in JP format, to take over the local governments and find ways to monetize their work. For some it is just a paycheck, others have grand ambitions.
But not everyone goes along willingly. Other players are actively working against the first group. Though the locals of the planet only have access to primitive weapons like muskets and gunpowder, they will not give up their world without a fight.
Setareh Wing is a mission-based RP GM'd by Ametheliana. A highly trained and skilled team of Frame Runners and their keen commander make up the Setareh Wing.

YSS Kaiyō is a roleplaying plot created December 24, 2016 by GM Ametheliana that highlights space combat and delves into character interaction. YSS Kaiyō sets out to disturb the Kuvexians in their space and instigate the unscaffolding of the enemy from the front lines, onwards. Whether or not they do this is up for debate, as they run into differing opponents that are only to lead up to the potential ending of the Kuvexian threat, or so they aim to do.
Made to stomp out the embers of war before they turn into full fledged flames, the Blackjack Assault Cruiser known as the NSS Sledge Mama and its marines often find themselves going from one fight to the next. Focusing on a rag-tag group of soldiers from the odds and ends of the Star Military, it remains to be seen if they will successfully complete their tour of duty and keep the peace, or fail and be turned into sausage by the meat-grinder of war. Life as a marine is not easy or even guaranteed, but thanks to technology, death is cheap(er).
The plot centers on tactical action and decision making; though heaven-piercing crazy-awesome is possible, it must be earned.
A Nepleslian Fleet based plot. A fleet of Orcas, Numerous Escorts, and Unknown enemies lie in wait for this group of captains, and can their Admiral deal with their actions?

Special Planetary Section 7, known as “Scythe”, might be extra-legal, and a little extra-violent, but they certainly aren't to be counted out.

It is their self-appointed task to repair the wounds of the great schism and re-establish contact with the lost colonies of the galactic north…
But what horrors will they find, once they pass the threshold into the true depths of uncharted space? Are the splintered organizations that support them truly a force for good, or are the old values of the Free State already dead and buried?
The plot follows the crew of the Anbruch as they go about their adventures in space. Mining, Salvage, pirate hunting, even relic hunting, as long as it's fun the Anbruch might give it a shot.

To that end, a select few are chosen to watchfully attend her, while another group of former YSS Miharu crewmembers warily cover her back. Is success merely its own curse? Or might some dark agenda truly result from Kotori's ambitions?
Famous admiral Hanako and the awesome and unique crew of the YSS Eucharis race across known space exploring worlds and getting into fights with the Empire's enemies. The YSS Eucharis plot is a long-running, newbie-friendly “classic” style plot run by the site's founder, Wes, who uses it as a vehicle to portray life in the Star Army of Yamatai and to showcase the events happening in the Yamatai Star Empire and the Star Army universe in general.

The newly repaired and refitted Heartbreaker is on an exploration and intelligence gathering mission into unexplored space, following data left behind by Uesu's Fleet. Officially Yamatai has had no contact with Ketsurui Uesu or his followers, and they have been tasked with discovering their fate. Secretly, Uesu has been in contact with Yamatai and the Ketsurui Clan for years, and Ketsurui Yui has started to worry about the new empire he may be constructing. Considering the two-time Emperor's connection to Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Himiko I of Yamatai, she has concerns he may attempt to retake the throne yet again, or otherwise use his connections and holdings to upset the balance of power.
Following a series of harrowing incidents, the YSS Junpu, a Special Personnel Project ship pursuing the shadowy force known as the “Umbral”, has found itself stranded in unmapped and dangerous territory.

Will they blink?
