The Sim




The Tihuanaco System was discovered in 2387. Its planets were rich in minerals, ancient history and the potential for colonization.

Urcaquary, the seventh planet, held ruins of a long-lost civilization. A nearby nebula housed a star nursery. Both warranted long-term study and so a colony was authorized.

As the ruins bore a strong resemblance to those found in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica and South America, the nebula and planets were named after Incan and Mayan gods. The system itself was named Tihuanaco, the name of an ancient city that legend holds to be the birthplace of the Incan people.

And so, Inti Colony was born. As it is far from most Federation traffic, it is often left to its own devices, which gives the colonists plenty of autonomy -- and a fierce desire to make this corner of the galaxy their own.

Where but Inti can you find 19th Century Terran farming techniques, advanced scientific research, ancient ruins, underwater exploration, space exploration, a garbage scow, pirates and a luxury resort?







INTI COLONY

Tikal Observatory high in the New Andes mountains is the center for the study of the Wiracocha Nebula and other nearby star formations.

The main Federation compound is built around a large plaza with gardens, walkways and a large central fountain.

On the North end is Inti Temple, a recreation of a Mayan temple. It is made of native glass and stone. It was built with a grant from the Damron Corporation.
The temple is the operations center for the colony and its scientific studies. It is designed as close to its analog so that it can be used to study ancient Incan and Mayan history and architecture.
Inti houses the colony’s museum, library and archives.

On the South end of the plaza is Mama Quilla Temple, the sister temple to Inti. It houses the security and Intel offices.

Along the West side of the plaza, from North to South, are:
The Quipu, the colony’s Planetary Operations center. The building houses operations, engineering, communications and maintenance
The Omnomery holds a large mess hall, a series of specialty restaurants and a bar for after-hours socializing.
The Kanocha Crew Quarters are for those who don’t wish to live in the village or a cottage.

Along the East side of the plaza are:
The Ulama Recreational Center houses ball courts, swimming pools, weight rooms and four holosuites.
Ixchel Medical Center houses the medical, pediatric and counseling services as well as medical research facilities.
Teuotihi Diplomatic Detachment and Embassy houses the diplomats and ambassadors, as well as formal meeting rooms and VIP housing.

S.S. Macintosh The home of Ms. Terry Twelve. The Type IX shuttle crashed in a tree behind the Diplomatic Building. It is now considered “art” and has become a permanent fixture.

Archaeological excavations will begin with the largest ancient city dubbed Paititi after the mythical lost city of the Incas.

As the colony is far from Federation commerce, a supply ship stops by on a monthly basis. Starships are rare. There is a small spaceport with warehouses and customs facilities. The Quartermaster is housed there as well.

A Starfleet Marine Base, Camp Holcan, has been established nearby, but the colony is often left to its own devices when dealing with its neighbors.

On the West coast is an underwater research facility that houses the Sir Francis Drake when its not exploring. This is the center for Inti’s underwater exploration.

On the East coast of the main continent are
Mictlan Resort, a luxury resort that caters to travelers and
the Xochipilli Casino
