  1. 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.
  2. 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. Ready to go? Just click the black button that says "reply to this topic", or just start typing in the box at the bottom of this page!
  3. Jori Nyseth

    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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  10. 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 :-)

    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

    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?

    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.
  15. Anyone else out there starting training today?
  16. alexisdalton

    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)

    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.
  18. Dave 'Raven' Young

    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

    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 🖖
  20. 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!

    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)
  22. 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.)
  23. 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.

    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.
  25. 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.
