  1. Archer's theme is pretty nifty! I am pretty partial to the Short Treks ending sounds suitably noir
  2. I wonder if that's the issue with them, then. They're just not as memorable as the orchestral crescendos?
  3. I like the ethereal sound to Disco and Picard! Almost like an optimistic sound to them?
  4. It's difficult to think about Star Trek and not have the theme music of a favoured series pop into the head. From the first time the Original Series popped onto television screens, the soundtrack composed by Alexander Courage has ensured Star Trek remained firmly in hearts and minds for years to come. Several composers have attempted their own version of this since, emulating and expanding upon one of the most iconic and well-loved pieces of orchestral composition. As with music tastes throughout the ages, the spin-offs of Star Trek have each introduced their fresh take on a theme. Over t
  5. I can't believe the Defiant and Nova are neck and neck in this space race 😄 Lot of love for the plucky science vessel!
  6. The Nova-class is over taking the Defiant! 👀 what have I done
  7. Hey Ben! Submissions closed on the 17th for the challenge, but you're more than welcome to get some practice in with the prompt and write something. We've got a great bunch of writers here who'd love to read it.
  8. So much love for our smaller ships! We've had a couple of Miranda classes in the fleet, maybe Wes' will be next! And man, the Nova gives me such feels 😂 Tonnes you could with a science vessel winging around the galaxy, looking into all the strange and doing all the science. Had a couple of Nova classes too! https://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php?title=Starfleet_Vessel_Register/By_Class
  9. There's something of the old-school swashbucklers about the Defiant class! Definitely a strong favourite, especially with all that nose art 😂 Hermes Class, search and rescue 👀 dive in, do the stuff, dive out
  10. When you mention ships of the Trekverse, the one everyone remembers is the Enterprise; the beautiful vessel that has captured the hearts and imaginations of the audience and the crew through years of successive storytelling. In the series, where space flight could be perilous, encounters with enemies more so, and hosting everyday life on board, the ships of the line became as recognisable in the shows as the characters themselves. You'd be hard-pressed to find a Star Trek fan who can't identify the sleek lines of the Galaxy class on sight, or punch the air when the Sovereign class makes that f
  11. @Ens. Joshua Sutton Kicking off life on the Gorkon in the true style of the party boat!
  12. 😂 No worries, dude. Typos be the death.
  13. I'm not so sure about that one. It's extremely unlikely any serving officer aside from those heavily entrenched in Intelligence (i.e. upper echelons only) would know about it. Starfleet Officers certainly wouldn't, or have had any interactions with them.
  14. I had a thought along these lines recently, about how we are judgemental creatures, it's in the nature; an innate, automatic trait. It's not a new thing either; polarising opinions about media have existed since the dawn of media. What critics have now is unprecedented access to millions of minds consuming all the time, barely stopping to form a free-thinking opinion of their own before diving into the next bit of consumption for the masses, and we know about the science of repetition. One of the first things i heard about the new Star Wars movies were that they didn't fit the genre, they
  15. Hallo Jeroen! Welcome to the group! Great to see new faces. We've got a fair few non-native English speakers in our group, who find it a brilliant way to practice. There's an open invitation for our Discord group you can find here, too, if you'd like to chat with the fleet: https://discord.com/invite/6MsQAvZ Enjoy your training!
  16. A student’s stay at Starfleet Academy can be a lengthy one, spanning four years of intensive training and education, combining multiple disciplines and academic achievements of phenomenal proportions. Many of those who graduate in their fields are the top the academy has to offer, including some with double majors, some cramming in as much study as they can into the brief season until they're flung off into the wide-open wilds of space. However, outside that realm of high academic achievement and success, like any other college and university, Starfleet Academy provides the students with
  17. The one with the mud bath. I remember it well 😄
  18. Bouncing off from the poll a few weeks ago regarding "Modern Conveniences" and all that future technology we couldn't live without (check it out here if you missed it!), we're exploring the wonder of the Holodeck. From fascinating sojourns through space and time, to imaginative crew creating their own holodeck adventures, to becoming trapped in a nightmare of someone else's creation, we've seen Star Trek explore the very essence of what it is to have such an ingenious technology on board a starship or station. Indulging in fantasies, recreating training environments only available on starships
  19. On this, our glorious day of April 1st, where the pranks are many and the fools roam free... we remember that the Federation has moved on from a calendar based on the movement of the Earth and now April does not exist in our future timeline. However! Fear not, brave prankster, as there is still many jokes to be had within our futuristic realm. Practical jokes on fellow officers is a tradition older than Starfleet itself, with arms stretching back throughout the history of Earth with the Feast of Fools in France, Royal Court Jesters being an actual vocation for some, and the Lord of Misru
  20. None have the suave edge Bashir brought to the Bond.
  21. @Jona ch'Ranni Fantastic job at writing for an NPC Slime Devil point of view post that showed the flip side to what's going on in our cavernous adventure! ((Dead Zone, Væron)) Vorl blinked her pupil-less eyes in the low light of the Cavehome. She had explored every centimeter of the place and knew right where everything should be without looking. Her two pronged fore-claws skitted on the rocky floor as she crept forward. It had been three cycles since the Change had occurred. She did not remember much of her life before the Change - only that her existence had been fille
