  1. Hey there, I'm Dave Young from Scotland and this will be my first ever role play haha I have been an avid fan of each of the Star Trek series since I was very young, particularly TNG and VOY. I also enjoy creative writing so naturally when I stumbled across the existence of this community I applied immediately! I'm really looking forward to participating in the training sessions to learn the ropes, then progressing into a role within the United Federation of Planets. My plan is to create a character of the same name as myself who specializes in the sciences. Perhaps a stellar cartographer. At the very least I would love to play the part of a character holding a tricorder rather than a phaser on away missions haha
  2. Didn't see a thread relating to starting characters, with this subject, so I was curious about it. I'm aware most you (besides NPCs) are all officers who went through the usual Academy process. But, do you have an option for someone that may be prior-enlisted, or who's enlisted or might seek a warrant or commission that way? Reason I'm asking is that your rank chart has enlisted/NCO's and Warrants. Nothing wrong with being an Ensign (if one graduates.), but I was thinking of my own character being enlisted years beforehand, and then choosing to attend the academy, in his backstory. Not attempting to be over-experienced, it's just a thought, given some long-lived species. Take Tuvok, joining Starfleet in the 23rd century, leaving, and then re-joining in the 24th for instance. I'll be young, relative to an El-Aurian, but older then a Human for instance (50-odd years old). So something similar wouldn't be unexplained. But if it's too complicated then that's all fine. I'll go the typical route, since simple is good. Back to the overall subject though, maybe someday someone new will just want to start out as a Crewman eh? That may not be the most exciting or interactive experience I realise since most seem to focus on the senior officers, but not everyone is keen to be the Captain. (Well, only if we can be like Scotty and Spock with the rank, but not the position, heh.)
  3. Apologies in advance if this isn't the correct area to post this. I applied to join a few days ago, and have training scheduled on Monday I believe. A few minutes ago I was browsing through the Lifeforms Index, to see if there was any species that'd be fun to play and I spotted the Xindi, after having a laugh picturing an Aquatic trying to go through a Jeffries tube, I started reading up on them and the Xindi-Avians caught my eye. However the Cadets area of the main website states that abilities such as flying aren't allowed, but the ILI (correct term) has them under allowed. Is this just a mixup or are they actually allowed? As that'd be a very interesting, albeit difficult, choice. Thanks.
  4. Hi guys. I have a small confession to make.... It took a full 2 weeks after finding this group deciding if I should join or not because I was unsure if I would be able to give good quality simulations and I am quite shy at first about new people. That being said...now that I 'pulled the trigger' and joined up...I'm having a blast in the training sim and am stoked to start simmimg on a ship itself. The training CO/FO are great and my simming is going well. I believe I made the right choice in signing up. See you out in the galaxy.
  5. Have you ever run in this problem: Your sim formatting is all messed up and makes it hard to read. Maybe the fonts are mismatched, different colors, different sizes, background shading, extra line-breaks, oh my! Maybe a little something like this? Setting this right just takes a few moments. It's simple and it's quick, so fret no more. There are two options. If you use Gmail (and we recommend it), fixing bad formatting is as simple as using the "clear formatting" button: But if you don't use Gmail, it's still pretty simple. Here are the steps: 1. Cut all the text from your sim. On Windows, it's CTRL+X. On Mac it's ⌘+X. 2. Open a text editor. On Windows, you must use Notepad (search in your start menu). On Mac, you must use TextEdit (search from Launchpad or open from your Applications folder in Finder). 3. Paste all the text from your sim into the text editor. On Windows, it's CTRL+V. On Mac, it's ⌘+V. Notepad or TextEdit will strip all the formatting out of your text, removing it completely. 4. Now here's the important part... don't mess this up! After you've pasted in all the text, cut all the text out of the text editor. On Windows, it's CTRL+X. On Mac it's ⌘+X. Now that the text is "clean" in Notepad or TextEdit, you're grabbing the clean text to put back into your email. 5. Paste the cleaned text into your email client. On Windows, it's CTRL+V. On Mac, it's ⌘+V. Super quick and simple, and you're left with totally clean formatting.
  6. Hello, I just joined up today and have progressed as far as being accepted, registered and assigned to a training class. So far so good. However, I am a bit concerned about how time sensitive is this training? Reason I am asking is that while I will be around the next few days on a pretty regular basis, come Thursday afternoon I am leaving on an out of state trip, staying at hotels, etc, and did not plan on taking along my laptop given we will be too busy during most of the time to even use it. I won't be back home and computer connected then until Sunday evening. Is this going to be a deal breaker for my training? I don't go on these trips very often in a year but it just so happens it is coming up for this weekend.
  7. Will the training begin today? I have not received any e-mails since Friday. Just wondering kind of excited to start. Haha
  8. Can you prove a wiki account please so I can start making my character?
  9. Hello All, So as I prepare to go through training a second time (stupid internet companies) I was wondering is there a list of needed Duty positions? I want to try a challenege and kind of pick something other then Tactical/Security/Marines, which is my usual. So just kind of wondering if there is like a posting for needed positions? Thanks
  10. I believe i tried to post this earlier but it either failed to post or was removed. The question i have is if i would be permitted to use the Starflee marine ranks inplace of the Starfleet officer ranks.
  11. I popped onto the IRC Chat tonight and found Skyfire. I just want to take a moment to say that I have never seen anyone so welcoming. I sent over wy writing sample for some feedback and got great notes and we spent the rest of the evening RPing some backstory for my brand new char! Truly awesome and Skyfire should get some recognition for being a great ambassador to your site!
  12. I submitted an application which was approved, (the site recognizes my screen name, merryblueeyes, and I submitted a character introduction. I logged on today and saw that Fleet Admiral Wolf had a question after my introduction post which was, Have you submitted and application? He said training started on Monday. Since I didn't see such a question after anyone else's character introduction, I'm a bit dismayed that perhaps my application has been lost. I have a history of disappearing from all kind of lists but computer records in particular! I'm also a little confused by the suggestion to have a Yahoo account. Does that mean a Yahoo email? If so, I already do and received my acceptance email through it. Could someone please contact me to let me know that all is well, so I can begin training on Monday? Thanks so much.
  13. Hello! Well, in short: I had an (all too) short stint here over a year ago and now I really wish to return. How should I proceed with that? Regards, Reni Svalasdottir
  14. I have recently joined this group and gotten my training email today. I attempted to reply but the email reply I sent was bounced back saying I didn't have posting rights for the group. I believe the problem stems from my using my @me.com email address to register. My iPad/iMac SENDS email from that address through the @icloud.com server which is why I don't think it's letting me post. I have sent emails to the steward and the xo of my training so far but want to get this resolved ASAP. I ALSO have a yahoo email which is tied to my google accnt but did not use that one as it gets spammed a lot and I didn't want to lose my sim posts. Can anyone help me get this resolved. Should I resubmit my application under a new email? Or can it be changed by the admins? Also my iPad auto corrected my characters name so it is also incorrect. Help!

  15. I noticed a lot of people have really nice images using various actores but having them in Starfleet uniforms. Sadly I SUCK at photoshop. Does anyone know if there is a site out there that allows you to do this or have any suggestions? Thanks!
  16. Can I make a Romulan from the Romulan Republic join the Federation?
  17. Here's the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (including the ones that are already listed on our "group intro" page): Training Information Q. How long is training? A. 6-10 days, depending on how often the group sims. Q. How will I know when training has begun? A. First, you'll receive an automated e-mail from the Google Groups system notifying you that you've been added to one of our Academy lists. Then you'll receive an e-mail entitled "Roll Call!" Q. Who do I send my "bio" to? A. Your bio will be reviewed by the Commanding Officer of your training group. During the training group, he or she will send out a tutorial which explains the specific format we use for bios, and ask you to send in yours to the group. It will be reviewed, and then sent to your permanent Commanding Officer once you graduate from training. Q. In Trek, sometimes exemplary cadets start out as LtJG officers once they reach their ship. Does that happen here? A. Everyone begins as an ensign when they transfer to a vessel. Q. What's the history of the USS Centris-A, the training vessel? A. Her fleet page tells the brief history. Q. Can I change the e-mail address I used to submit my application? A. Sure can. Just send an e-mail to t.wolf@starbase118.net from the e-mail address you submitted your application from. In this e-mail, ask him to change your address, and be sure to copy in the new address you want to change to. General Questions Q. What is simming? A. Simming is short for “simulation,” and basically just means Role Playing. Our group is a Play-By-Email Role Playing Group (PBEM RPG), which means that people’s contributions to our game are done through e-mail. We use Google Groups, an easy and popular service, as our e-mail servers. Q. How much do I have to pay for this? A. Nothing. Our group is entirely volunteer run, and playing within our group costs nothing. Q. Do I have to sign on at a specific time? A. No. You can sign on any time of the day to get your e-mails and respond. Q. How often do I have to sim? A. We usually suggest at least three times a week, though you’ll want to check your e-mail as often as possible. (During training, we’ll ask you how often you plan to play, and you’ll have the chance to decide whether you would like a faster or slower playing ship.) Q. Can I join more than one ship? A. It is permissible to sim more than one character, as long as you are of the rank of Lieutenant. Our group's focus is on quality of simming. As such, we don't want any simmer to overstretch themselves and have their simming drop on their primary vessel. In our experience sometimes people under estimate the workload of taking on a second character. However, as mentioned, once you reach the rank of Lieutenant, you may play up to three characters regularly. If you decide you don’t like the character you started with, you’re more than welcome to create a new character and remove your old character at any time. Q. Where can I find out more about the ships in your fleet? A. An "active fleet" page is maintained. From there you can find stats on each ship, and links to their websites, crewlists, and sim archives. Be sure to introduce yourself in our " Welcome Thread," and then introduce your character in the "Arrival at StarBase 118" thread. If you have any further questions, use the "Questions about our group" thread!
  18. Hey all, So its 5:15 on Monday (where I am), and my inbox is empty. When is the "Welcome to Training" email sent? Am I signed up everywhere I need to be? I followed all the links from the emails and everything. Or does the Welcome Email just get sent out later at night? If so when should I expect it, roughly? Thanks, Alden Cuthbert Cadet
  19. I managed to retain part 2 of my application, but can't seem to remember what I submitted for part I (for duty postings, specifically). Would I be able to get this information somehow prior to roll call? Thanks.
  20. From the FAQ Page... Q. Where can I find out more about the ships in your fleet? A. An "active fleet" page is maintained. From there you can find stats on each ship, and links to their websites, crewlists, and sim archives. Active fleet page will take you to a comprehensive list of all the vessels in the SB118 family. Hisotries of crew, missions, etc are all easily found.
  21. We're a Play-By-Email (PBEM) role-playing group (RPG), and these forums are where we meet Out Of Character (OOC). Even if you've registered for our forums, you also need to submit an application to participate in our RPG. To get started, head to our Group Introduction page, found here: http://www.starbase118.net/about/group-introduction/
  22. Hello All, I am so excited to be joining SB: 118 I have settled on playing a Rodulan I read all the information on the race through your Wiki and find them to be very interesting. Now here is my Delima I am not sure what duty post to play, I have simmed Star Trek for almost as long as SB 118 has been around and here are the duty post I have played. Helm/Ops: Reached rank of Lt Marine: Reached rank of Major Pilot: Reached rank of Captain Medical: Played as a Nurse working towards receiving Doctorate Security /Tactical: Lt and Chief of both departments Now as you can see I have played a number of positions but I was curious what is SB 118 lacking for positions? Will it depend on where I end up being posted once I go through my Cadet Cruise? Now I am not sure how many of you have read Rodulan information but they are readers and what I would consider a socially awkward ....well maybe thats not the right word they are slightly off putting I guess would be better. Not Technological inclined but there is a sub group in the Rodulan race that is more inclined toward technology. So basically my questions is any suggestions on a duty post for me ? Thanks for the help
  23. As a new Cadet, still in the throws of character creation it occurs to me how invitingly dramatic it would be to have a prior relationship with one or more established characters. I believe I spotted at least one Tellarite (would it be inapropos to ask if they might consider being a brother-in-law, uncle, family or childhood freind?) Same year (or even near year) Academy cadets are another obvious possibility. For Ęlopii, any Terran could be an estranged relative. And as she was an Ambassador's daughter, any diplomatic character might have a chance to recall the eager little girl in a certain Tellarite Ambassador's company. (sigh) While I realize there'a an apropriate caution not to over craft one's character so it might develope more freely in the future, I can't help but recall various reunions at the beginning of a story arc. Picard/Crusher(&Crusher), Picard/Guinan, Riker/Troi, Janeway/Tuvok, Archer/'Trip', Sisko/Dax and the later Dax/entire DS9 community.... and even Kirk himself had a tenous relation to the ever-melodic young RIley (from Tarsus days?) though that was more episodic. (hmmm) While I do hate suggesting an answer to my own question, a first character may not be best to pursue connections as one is still very much a question mark...unproven as it were. Perhaps this is a subject better addressed with secondary characters? By that time one would imagine there to OOC relationships to be developed. (shrug) Regardless... I think I'll ask anyway.
  24. Does StarBase18 have a resource to find out the characteristics of the various species? I hope to play a doctor, and I'd like to know more about my potential patients. For instance, I haven't been able to find out anything about Pythrons although I've tried to find them on-line.
