    Hello! After graduation, I've noticed some sims in my assigned ship ending with "tag/tbc". Now I've been able to (hopefully) suss out what they're used for, but I wanted to: 1. double check I had it right, and 2. point out that as far as I can tell, these specific acronyms aren't explicitly addressed in the training or on the wiki.

    Just to echo what others have said, it's mostly a habit/holdover from the past and you're not doing anything wrong if you don't include them in yours. When it comes to other people's, as long as you've read the sim, you aren't missing any vital information if you don't spot it. I generally feel that by the end of the post, it's self-evident when other characters are tagged, and whether the scene's finishing or continuing on -- we don't use tag/TBC on the Gorkon, and the only time I ever use TBC or fin/end is when it's a multi-part post.

    Having said that, I'm not sure how to END a thread. I had one to end today so I put "Tag: None" in the subject line, because that's what my specific ship does, and at the end I put something like "End of Scene", because we had reached the natural conclusion between the two characters, and everyone else had moved on.

    Putting tags in subject lines is a ship specific thing and you're always best checking with your CO/XO/mentor how to manage that, but your solution sounds reasonable and sensible to me. :)


  2. Hi T'Katt!

    You're definitely added to the group, and you should be able to send emails to it from your email address as you have been doing. If you'd like to view and/or post from the group's web interface (which is the provided link), you'll need a Google account. I believe you can create one with your existing email here: https://accounts.google.com/signupwithoutgmail

    You need to manually add your character's name to the subject line of your sims. So for you, you'd put something like: Cadet Dugoras - The Title of My Sim

    I think I've sorted your forum issue, but if you have any problems, please let me know. :)


  3. The religion in question would be a rather obscure cult, who believe in a "Divine Emperor of Mankind".

    Their tennants are:

    • That the God-Emperor of Mankind once walked among men in their form and that He is and always has been the one, true God of humanity.
    • That the God-Emperor of Mankind is the one true God of Mankind, regardless of the previous beliefs held by any man or woman.
    • Every human being has a place within the God-Emperor's great plan.
    • It is the duty of the faithful to unquestionably obey the authority of the Federation, and their superiors, who speak in the Emperor's place.
    • To eradicate chaos throughout the universe, and in it's place create peace and order

    We're not quite in the 41st Millennium yet. ;)

    On a more serious note, Games Workshop can be quite ardent in defending their IP and while they're usually very encouraging of hobbyist activity (including fan fiction), it's probably best to err on the side of caution and not pull their lore and terminology into a Trek setting. :)
