  1. 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
  2. Training on the 12th of February

    Just wondering is the training for the 12th still on? Im from the UK so for me the training might start later in the day but just wanted to know if its still on as cant wait to get started with my fellow cadets today
  3. Roll Call question.

    I replied to the roll call, but did not receive any kind of response yet. Don't want to miss the window. Wondering if it was received.
  4. Anyone else out there starting training today?
  5. 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.
  6. Artistic Licence?

    Hi everyone! So I'm completely new to simming and am playing a Bardeezan Cadet called Gogigobo Fairhug in training right now. I was just wondering how much artistic licence we have over species on which there isn't much background info? For example, can I make up sports they play on their home world? Festivals? Even words from their language? Species of indigenous animals? Looking forward to your replies Hugs and kisses. James (Gogi)
  7. Academy Training

    Hi, I just want to let everyone know how much I'm enjoying the training program at the academy. I'm falling in love with my character already and i'm really looking forward to joining a crew soon 🖖
  8. Hello everyone!

    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
  9. Hello all

    Hi there, I recently applied and was accepted into the Sim. I'm Lex and will be playing a Bajoran medical officer. I'm a massive Trek nerd and grew up watching TNG and DS9, I stumbled across your group on a facebook banner ad and thought I would give it a go. I am super excited to be part of the fun Lex (Lesko Aika)
  10. Staring at a blank page... it's like there's nothing there...

  11. 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.)
  12. 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.
  13. Having a blast so far

    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.
  14. Timing of the Training Classes?

    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.
  15. Hi all! I received the first training email just now - tutorial 1, "Into the unknown" - and I'm not sure how to reply. I have a few questions: When my character is tagged, do I quote the entire sim, and insert my character's bits where they belong? What does a Cadet's signature look like, as we don't have an assignment yet? (Sorry if these are answered elsewhere, I did poke around quite a bit. )
  16. A tall average built man well groomed southern gentle man with dark brown hair keeps himself clean-shaven except for a neatly kept goatee. He has a bit of a rugged look to him like his square jaw and board cleft chin. He seems to light up a room when he walks in. He has long thin fingers that help him perform delicate surgeries walks into the room looking around at his fellow class mates as he introduced himself "hellow My name is Steven Brooks I am a Human-Betazoid Hybrid its good to meet you all and I will enjoy our Training together." he would take his seat and wait for his lessons.
  17. Training Question

    Hey everyone. Just got my Training Sim through. My question is this: Are there NPCs milling about the ship you can order about / control? Im security and wanted to make sure it is acceptable to order said minions about. Thanks in advance.
  18. Training today?

    Will the training begin today? I have not received any e-mails since Friday. Just wondering kind of excited to start. Haha
  19. Webmaster wiki account

    Can you prove a wiki account please so I can start making my character?
  20. Red Squad

    Can our characters be part of red squad and if so would you be able to become a lieutenant immediately after being a cadet?
  21. Duty Posting

    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
  22. 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.
  23. Marine Ranks

    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.
  24. Can I just say this?

    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!
  25. Returning player, how to proceed?

    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
