The USS Albion is a Star Trek role play in Independence Fleet (IDF). It is noted for using the open role playing concept and script format posting style, similar to the format of the original USS Sunfire of Utopia Fleet. The Albion name continues the tradition and legacy of IDF's USS Avalon series of sims.
