  1. Forgive me if I'm missing something, but isn't the reason it has so many fewer decks is because the hulls within take up so much room? The ship splits into three parts, and therefore each part needs to have a "top" and "bottom" hull somewhere in there, which takes up quite a bit of room.
  2. Yes, we have a forum to request a signature graphic and avatar!
  3. It has something to do with the fact that Gmail's able to recognize when an email sent to a list – especially Google Groups. So when the email comes from the group with your address, it just "deletes" that email and threads what's in your Sent folder. As @Jona ch'Ranni said, you can always just check your All Mail/Sent folders. Another thing to do is set up a Gmail filter that searches for anything sent to an email list, and then have it labeled – i.e.- "Gorkon sim" / "Gorkon OOC". That way you can just drop into that label to see your post. But if you're looking to confirm your email got to the list, you'll need to go to the group page itself.
  4. Sorry I missed this – hopefully the question has been answered by now in the class For future reference of others: Generally the etiquette is to wait at least 24 hours before responding again, more depending on the flow of the story. Some ships sim faster than others, so you'll get guidance on this from your eventual Commanding Officer. Each time you write a post, it'll be a new part of the story. In some cases, there will be situations where a bunch of people are in the same room and you might need to sorta "rehash" the scene as people fill in tags, but most of the time that won't be necessary and you'll just be picking up where you last left off. So if someone's response to your tag requires more "discussion," you can repost the last few lines so that people don't have to go back and look at previous sims, but otherwise you want to have new content starting from that point. Hope that helps
  5. Would you mind trying this link? https://www.starbase118.net/chat/ Follow the instructions onscreen carefully – it does require you to step through a few quick things before you can chat. Let me know if that doesn't work!
  6. Hey everyone! Glad you found us! Hope you enjoy training this week – another big class of five folks
  7. Thanks for applying! Be sure to also pop into the chat room at https://www.starbase118.net/chat – lots of folks hang around there all day
  8. Welcome! You'll be in one of our two big training groups this week from all the reddit applicants. We're glad to have you!
  9. Any reason we can't convince you to give Play By Email a try? We've been running for nearly 25 years now, so we like to think we have Star Trek simming figured out pretty well!
  10. Yes, that's the correct interpretation. I encourage you to submit by this evening – we have a training group starting tomorrow and we'd love to have you in it.
  11. Voyager era for me as well. Very snappy stuff
  12. Welcome! Hope you enjoy the training session Make sure to stop by the wiki and read through the cadet orientation: https://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php?title=Cadet_Orientation
  13. I lived in Little Rock for years and graduated from Hendrix College! Welcome!
  14. The ships are one of my favorite parts of the show and game. I love the huge ones (like the Odyssey class) – just the thought of walking through a behemoth like that and watching it sidle up next to smaller ships is so much fun! But I also love ships like the Olympic class, particularly thinking through the weird logistics involved in creating a hospital ship.
  15. In the text box, in a new post, click the smiley face on the toolbar and you'll now see the standard set of emojis you have on your phone
  16. It's a close race for me between something like Starfleet Intelligence and the civilian angle. I think the only problem with the latter is that you'd need to go with a different format than normal shows – one thing that would work that was thrown around as a rumor before Discovery was potentially doing limited-run seasons and switching the characters/actors each season? In that way, I think they could do really tightly written, dramatic plots on a number of worlds (Trill, Vulcan, Bajor, Betazed, Andorian, perhaps with a "sub-plot" each season on a non-Federation world like Cardassia, Romulus, etc.) without going too far down the rabbit hole in a way that would require you to pit your civilians against each other that seems "un-Federation-like"? Because one of the things I fear about a full series done in the normal TV style is that you really have to dig quite a bit to find enough story to fill a whole season, and then multiple seasons, which leads you away from the original "vision" of what the Federation is like. So doing really short seasons (8-10 episodes) with different worlds each season means you can tell stories that don't bend the premise of the "evolved Federation citizen" past the point of breaking. You could probably do a similar format even with the specialized Starfleet departments – 8-10 episodes each of Starfleet Medical (in the Grays Anatomy style!), Starfleet Intelligence (The Americans showed us thrilling spylore), Starfleet Security (there are so many crime procedurals to base this off of...), Starfleet Engineering (maybe something like Scorpion?), Starfleet flight school (Top Gun!), etc. With so many amazing stories to tell, it's hard to believe they went the Discovery route... 😒
