Glad to have you with us, and welcome to our community! Introduce yourself to our members by posting a reply and saying hello. Below are some ideas for things to tell us about yourself. Post as much or as little as you're comfortable with -- only forum members can actually read the threads here, so outside folks can't see what you post! What's your real first name? Where do you live? (General area! City or state, even!) How did you find our group? What kind of work do you do? I'll start! I'm Jordan. My character name is "Tristan Wolf" and I founded this group in 1994 on AOL. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I work in political advocacy. Here's a pictures of my dog Baxter!

Let's get down to business! This is an open thread to introduce your character. Don't worry about formatting -- just be creative and write in a way that's comfortable for you. You'll learn how to use our official format once training starts. For now, let's just have fun! Here's how it works: your character has just finished four years at the Academy and has arrived at StarBase 118 for their "Cadet Cruise." (i.e.- your training program!) Your transport has arrived a few hours before you're due to report to the holodeck for the briefing. Maybe you want to wander around the massive commercial sector, or something else entirely? You'll want to start with your character. Be creative about showing us who they are -- species, name, and perhaps a description of what they look like. Think back to the fiction books you've read, and recall how authors introduce you to the main character of the story. You might find this tutorial "How to introduce a character" to be useful.
