  1. 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.

    Why did you apply to join our community?

    Unfortunately, the last thread under this name was lost due to an error on my part. After a spammer posted two virus links in separate threads, I meant to delete ONE post from the thread under this name, and delete the "other" entire thread he created. I did it in reverse, though :-\ Anyway, let's start a new thread! Just tell us why you applied to join our community over any other group on the net

    How come my latest post shows up in the googlegroup, but not in my g-mail inbox? Does that mean it wasn't sent or received properly?

    TAG/TBC?

    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. As far as I can tell, using "tag" in a sim means you've tagged other people to respond. But I'm confused as to its use. Clearly some ships use a tag in the subject line to make clear who should respond to a sim; the Montreal's manual states that "Tag: Name" isn't to be used in email subject lines, and I have seen at least one appreciation post that does so, so that much is clear and makes sense. But what's the purpose of putting it at the bottom of an email? It seems to me fairly self-evident that a sim that contains "Name: response" is "tagging" the person named. Is putting "tag" at the bottom of an email just to make sure people know that there are spots they need to respond to? I'd also like to point out that in the training, the ((Location)) that is required at the start of every sim was referred to as a "location tag," and that the ::double colon:: was also referred to as an "action tag". It seems to me that narrative indicators and calls for a response are two entirely separate things, and should have separate names. "TBC" appears to stand for "to be continued." If that's not what it means, then I am very confused. But even if that is what it means, I'm still confused, because the nature of an an ongoing collaborative narrative sort of implies that every sim is "to be continued," right? Unless the CO makes a final sim that wraps up an adventure, there's no reason *not* to continue a story, right?
  5. Are you in training, or recently finished with training, and have some thoughts on how we can make things better? We'd love to hear more about these subjects: * How easy was the website to navigate? * Did you find the Cadets are useful? * Was there too much information to process? Not enough? * Was the process "step by step" enough, or were there points at which you became confused? * What info were you looking for that we didn't have easily available? Beyond that, ANY suggestions are welcome which can help streamline our process, increase your enjoyment, and make it easier to participate! Please press Reply now and let us know!

    Responding to Tags

    We just started our academy training and I'm wondering about the process for responding to tags presented by other simmers. For example, the CO started the sim with a post. I posted my sim by filling in my responses where appropriate, making sure to fill in dialog in all the tags presented for my character. Then the FO posted their sim after mine but included an additional tag for me to respond to. Should I now post an updated sim that includes everything I wrote before, add the FO's dialog, and fill out my dialog in the spot that the FO tagged me? Is there more etiquette in waiting for the rest of the cadets to add their responses and then include their dialog with my second post? Cadet Jona ch'Ranni Trainee USS Centris-A

    Back in time, again!

    Hi to all! My real name is Roberto, 46 years old from Italy and a long term fan of Star trek .I've loved Original series, DS9 and even Discovery! I've made the Academy here at '118, several months ago, with my once PC Kol'Vat. Then due to familiar matters I have to interrupt the game,leaving me with the desire to return to write. Now, I'm here again to join this Amazing game, in search for a ship for my PC. Exactly, my pc, this time...He's a Trill, an unjoined Trill who's lived an hard life of loss of opprtunity due to the incompatibility with the symbiont. This lack brang Jillrod to the StarFleet and (i hope) to science department. Well, that's all by now! I hope to meet here my new collegues of course. Best Trill wishes Roberto
  11. My poor character is so excited she's literally vibrating while I, her faithful author, has just churned out the first post and wants to hideaway in case it's a horrible first post and a cliche seen from far away The first time's always the most frightening QwQ But that just means I live and learn, right? Right!
  12. Ari Tullus

    Greetings from Ari Tullus!

    Hello everyone! I am Joe and I will be simming as Ari Tullus, a Trill. Ari knew from a young age that he wanted to be joined with Tullus and worked towards that end. When he was joined it was the greatest day of his life. Tullus has had 8 previous hosts and is nearing 500 years of life, which is old even by Trill standards. Ari was chosen as the final host of Tullus, a fact which weighs heavily on his mind. He takes this responsibility very seriously and strives to seek out new experiences so the final life of Tullus is as full and successful as possible. With the ability to access 500 years of memories and experience, Ari is considered a wise advisor and trusted friend. Because Ari has so many experiences he has been willing to accept any assignment Star Fleet feels he is most suited for, though he dreams of being a starship captain. The goal is to be the best, explore strange new worlds, and ensure Tullus shuffles off the mortal coil with no regrets.

    Hi everyone from Jori Nyseth

    Hiya everyone, My name is Jori Nyseth, as per the title, and I'm happy to have been accepted into the Starfleet Academy. And it's so good to see so many fellow Bajorans here. I am hoping to be accepted as a Science Officer. I've always be a massive fan of Ensign Ro, she was one of the first Bajorans to join Starfleet and escape the prison which is Bajor. I believe her Pah was always clean, despite what the media at home have said. Is there any other Bajorans joining on September 18th? Anyone planning on seeing the sights of San Francisco afterwards and show these humans how to PARTY!!!!

    Application Example Question

    I'm thinking of joining soon, and have written my creative writing sample. Reading the assignment back, I'm not so sure what is meant with narrative style. I've interpreted it as a story with the structure of a story, i.e. Intro - Body - Conclusion. But reading it back, I think maybe the layout of the story is meant, i.e. write it like a book, not as the RPG sim style, which I've done. Am I interpreting it right? Should I rewrite my writing sample?

    New recruit, training July 30th!

    Ensign Malko is looking forward to joining the ranks, and meeting fellow classmates.
  16. Hello all, I'm looking at playing a Trill but have hit a stumbling block: Application and training to Join with a Symbiont and to become a Starfleet Officer both occur during one's early 20s. How have previous Joined Trill players reconciled the two? I assume Starfleet doesn't just let cadets/ensigns take extended leave that may result in a totally different person than the one they just vetted and trained. Suggestions and advice are greatly appreciated, thank you!
  17. Hey everyone. Real life got in the way of things for a long while but I am back with a different Character. Looking forward to simming with you all again.

    I think I'm having some issues

    I Posted this here as I am having a hard time navigating the site and forums, many I cant view or post in and I'm waiting to be approved or something 0n this site. I'm playing as T'Katt Dugoras. So here's it all. I got approved and have started training but something aren't working right it seems. 1. I got an email telling me I was added to a google group, but if I click that link it take me to a page saying I cant view the group as I am not a member and it want me to sign into gmail, but I get all the emails from that group in my yahoo inbox and replying seems to work fine. Whats the deal with this and how does it affect my simming properly? is Yahoo not a good Email for this system? 2. I noticed in peoples reply emails its listed with their names before the title or subject line example: [sb118-acedemy2] Cadet so-n-so (: or -) Title or subject But mine appears [sb118-acedemy2] title or subject Is this due to a setting I am not aware of or because I cant view the group from that link? 3. The whole needing approved for the forums thing, I hit sign up filled out the info used the name CoryCodeRed as its my generic online handle and went to my email for the verification part but it took me to a screen saying i needed approved still and today as well I can only access as guest. not sure if this is just due to some delayed reactions or something else. Other than this I am enjoying the experience and hope to get things sorted out for the future
  19. Hey all, im new and have been approved for training. I have a (in my opinion a good) character and background idea for a sentient/self-aware hologram. However i was wondering if anyone else was playing one or has played as one. If so i would love to hear any advice, pointers, and story's about said characters. Id also like to take the moment and say i look forward to the adventures and getting to know this group of explorers :-)

    Bio?

    Is there any template or something like this to create the Bio or are we Cadets supposed to wait for the time after training?

    Hey Everyone

    Hey folks, As a newly accepted eagerly awaiting my training cadet, I would like to say thank you for the chance to join this crew. I am a hardcore sci-fi fan, star trek being top of that particular pile. I would have to say my favorite is DS9 and Voyager. I have never actually simmed before but i have been involved in various forms of online rp, so I am hoping the shoe fits. Regards, th'Zarath Keval.
