Star Trek: Banting was a serial roleplay for the online game Star Trek Voyager - Elite Force using the RPG-X2 Mod. This SRP took place on the server ST-O-RP (star trek online roleplay). This roleplay started in February 2008.
Banting is based in the 24th century on board the vessel, USS Banting, crewed by one of the most interesting crews in Starfleet. The vessel is of an Excelsior-class design, but was refit to fit the needs of the Banting.
Come Season 2, the Banting became lost and attempts to find its way home.
In the final season, the crew had lost all hope of returning home, losing their captain in the process. By the end, the Banting was "decommissioned" and mothballed. The crew was reassigned to the USS Banting-A and commenced an exploration mission into the Gamma Quadrant.
