  2. Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in October. This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. Thanks to another post on Reddit, October brought in twenty-nine new applicants! This marks October as the month with the highest number of applicants this year and represents our third consecutive month with an increasing number of applicants. The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application: This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of October. The fleet saw nineteen new graduates this month, which includes four applicants who applied during September, and marks October as the month with the highest number of graduates this year. It is also marks October as the third consecutive month with an increase in the number of graduates. Having nineteen new applicants helped provide the fleet with the surge in numbers to launch two new ships, The USS Eagle and the USS Montreal. These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.

  3. The worst has finally happened – the alternate future seen in The Next Generation episode “Parallels” has come to pass. The Federation is no more, the Borg are swarming the Alpha Quadrant, and the only thing holding them at bay is Riker’s uncontrollable beard. Amidst this madness, you are determined to survive at any cost. But you can’t do it alone! In this desperate hour, you need a security officer by your side that you can trust, someone who has served Starfleet faithfully. The list is long and varied, and you may use any canon security officer from any time period. With that in mind, who would you pick? The disciplined yet somewhat trigger happy Malcolm Reed? Worf, who’s hand to hand skills might be extremely useful? Maybe a Changeling might be your style – Odo would be a formidable ally. Or perhaps you’d prefer a random redshirt from The Original Series? Hey, if they’re focused on him, they’re not focused on you! This week’s poll asks you which security officer you’d want at your side the most in an apocalypse. Head to the forums now to register your vote in the poll, and let us know your rational in the thread.

    Poll of the Week: Haunted Places

    Happy Halloween everyone! Previously, a poll of the week asked what your favorite scary episode of Star Trek is. This week we wanted to envision what a pure horror story would look like in the Star Trek universe. Typically, when an episode tells a horror story it is usually through a monster or strange anomaly haunting the crew. However, horror is not traditionally focused on powerful characters in an advanced military ship. Horror is about the characters being forced to overcome an unknown superior force, be it a masked killer or a ghost haunting their home. One of the most important parts of a horror story is the location. Often these places are secluded, dangerous, or associated with bad history. Haunted mansions, abandoned hospitals or asylums, and isolated places out in the woods are all popular choices. If Star Trek ever produced a standalone horror story, what would be a frightening or secluded setting? Space provides no shortage of hazardous environments that could make for threatening settings for a story. Perhaps a ghost-like anomaly could haunt the two-person crew in the cramped quarters of a relay station or some alien monster of the week could try to drive a group of colonists off of its planet. What location in the Star Trek universe do you think would make the best horror story setting? Click here to head to the forums and register you vote in the polls. Be sure to leave a comment in the thread below the poll! The post Poll of the Week: Haunted Places appeared first on UFOP: StarBase 118 Star Trek RPG. View the full article

    Halloween Avatar Contest 2018: Winners!

    Thanks to everyone who helped organize and facilitate their crew’s participation in this contest. This year all eight of our ships and bases participated. Here’s our list of themes: Atlantis: Sea Myths Apollo: National Aeronautics and Steampunk Association Columbia: Astronauts Constitution: Norse gods Gorkon: 8 Bit Gaming Veritas: Rocky Horror Embassy: Duronis II Zoo SB 118 Ops: Anime Participation was even higher than last year, with five ships at 100% and all other ships at 85% or higher! There were eight judges this year, all from our community. Each ship and base sent one judge who was not the Commanding Officer. They were each required to rank the entrants in two categories: originality and design quality. None of the judges could score their own ship in the first position for either category. Then, we multiplied those scores against participation of each ship to come up with a final number. So who won? (Click the “read more” button to see!) Congratulations go to the crew of the USS Gorkon for their 8 Bit Gaming avatars! The Gorkon were last year’s runners-up, so congratulations to them for a great streak two years in a row! These innovative and great designs were the clear winners. But we always award a runner-up, and this year’s it’s Columbia‘s Astronauts – besting another crew by just a few points thanks to the participation multiplier, which just goes to show that having everyone on your crew participate can make or break how you place! Head to the forums now to congratulate the winners and runners-up in our Halloween Avatar Contest discussion thread!

  12. Two ships head out to the frontiers of the Federation, preparing to not only explore, but defend and serve the citizens of the Federation. On one side, of space, the Eagle fills the power vacuum as the Cardassian Union withdraws from a nearly lawless, annexed territory to focus on its homeworld. On the other side of space, the Montreal arrives in the Shoals to aide colonists and hold the line against space pirates, famine, disease, and unrest. This week, UFOP: StarBase 118 Star Trek PBEM RPG is excited to launch the USS Eagle and USS Montreal, welcome additions to our growing ranks that will help us make room for new players. Under the commands of Oddas Aria and Mei’konda respectively, these ships are accepting six transfers from around the fleet to help fill out their rosters and alleviate overcrowding on our established vessels. Click here to check your eligibility, find out more information, and submit your transfer request. Your promotion progress goes with you to the new ship! Act quickly if you’re interested – new ship rosters usually fill up within 48 hours of our first announcement going out!

  13. In an organization as diverse, multifaceted and accepting as Starfleet, there’s bound to be a variety of different reasons to make the commitment to the fleet. For some, it’s the mission itself. More noble goals than Starfleet’s are difficult to come by, and their pursuit contributes to the expansion, continuation and improvement of an astonishing interstellar civilization. Other characters might have joined out of a sense of familial obligation. The fleet has been around in some form or fashion for centuries, and a tradition of service exists in many families, sometimes reaching back three, four or even five generations. Some might feel a desire or a need to protect the Federation, especially considering the many conflicts and dangers that exist in the not so empty depths of space. Other, less personal reasons might have been an impetus as well. Serving aboard a starship is an excellent way to get the feel for a society, and appreciate its positive and negative aspects. This is especially true with newly discovered species, or those that wish to be the first of their kind in a Starfleet uniform. The reasons are, naturally, varied, and can say a great deal about a character before we even get to know them. So what was your characters’ impetus to join Starfleet? Was it a desire to contribute to the Federation and be a part of something bigger? Was it to protect and defend? Explore? Something not mentioned here? Click here to head to the forums and register your vote in this poll of the week. Be sure to leave a comment in the thread below the poll!
