The Trust, a role-playing Fleet in STO, has written a Guest Blog that shares details about how you can become involved with the role-playing community in-game.

Curious how they RP their ship exploding and 400 crew dying?

They must, I assume, delete and re-roll their toon?

Iconians. Or crazy temporal mish-mash wibbly-wobbly alternate universes.

(I have no idea)

I heard about a good place to RP from some friends in my fleet. I've never been able to find a good place to RP here, until they told me. It opens up for some fun stories, especially if you made one with your character's backgrounds.

It is odd to RP the horrid demise of your crew

To be honest, I got pulled into roleplaying unintentionally. A Caitian on Bajor asked me for parental advice, and I did not know she was asking in character until a long time later. () And then recently, us members of the Ferasan Shadow Force have discovered some real fun in spending spare time at the Hathon Bar. ()

So that almost means that you need to roleplay at least once during your life on STO. You do not need to do nothing else BUT roleplay, just as long as you do it once or twice during your career.

Bajor is a halfway decent place to roleplay, most of the time.

I completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE, Optionals included. And I soloed Winter Invasion.

Nice article. I don't personally Role Play and I don't think the mechanics of STO help RP's out - its more of a amusement park. I do however play main character to live in the STO/Star Trek universe (uniform, ships etc).

Great blog and a nice introduction to the concept of roleplay on the Holodeck shard.

When the game blows up my starship, I just assumed it was disabled and ignored by my adversary long enough for my heroic crew to restore systems. Or maybe we were towed from the battlefield? Maybe no one died at all. Or maybe a Bridge officer died when the player chose to replace them with a better quality mission reward? What's nice about roleplay is that the possibilities are endless.

Spamming public game chat is not a hobby. Public roleplay is ridiculous, and really quite rude.

Fleet is totally different. Use your own channel as you see fit, I say. More power to them, and enjoy yourselves.
