Activity is way up again now that the Holidays is over. Anyone interested in being Starbase crew? We need some people to man our giant space station!

I have run into @Sprint01 before I left for vacation back in Sep / Oct, it's good to see a new, serious and successful RP effort ongoing.

Now, before I click in my application on your website I just want to make a couple enquiries first just so I can make sure my IC characters and myself can fit in properly.

1) I am pretty much a no nonsense STO player and I do not have much patience for "standard fare" ways to tackle ESTFs and other forms of gameplay. My characters innovate, to various means and ends dictated by their historical background. They innovate a lot, to the extent that elite STF fleets find me annoying (and wonder why a lone Tholian carrier can solo 5 elite tactical cubes on the HSE). Not my fault most of the "experts" of STO have closed their minds to tactical innovation - a trait that has kept the Federation alive for hundreds of years.

One is highly influenced by the Bajoran way of life, another is a covert Augment who finds it absurd that times of war allows her to circumvent certain aspects of Federation law (seriously, other RP guilds didn't even touch on this!). The Augment acts more like a Klingon (despite being human) due to interstellar trade experience pre-2409.


2) I enjoy telling war stories from an IC perspective to benefit new players, and I can do the same IC interaction in the middle of space combat missions. This means I can follow or lead IC space events without hindrance to STO gameplay. Infact RPed STFs are mighty fun and I did that for months in my own fleet - Redneck Academy (now defunct due to player disappointment with the game).

On the other hand, certain other "mature" fleet has had resorted to being internet bullies to stop me from RPing with new players (despite it being highly beneficial for fleet recruitment and great for pre-STF training) so I just want to have a feel for the organization before I join for real.

Once onboard I can act as a military secretary (I write AARs and stuff pretty well and also produce regular youtube videos given enough inspiration) or general frontline operative who kills stuff (ICly) without much social interests. And that should fit your premise of wartime RP, right?

Let me know if I have a place in the 26th, and I shall proceed to submit the application accordingly.

Carmenara! I was hoping to run into you again. Quite frankly, any of your characters would be welcome in the fleet. We try to find as many ways as possible to say 'Yes' rather than 'No' to certain types of RP. Your Recluse is an OOC ship, or an IC one? As a Starfleet outpost, we ICly only have facilities to service standard starfleet ships. Our goal is to make a believable Star Trek experience, so we limit our IC ships to Starfleet designs, for Starfleet officers.

Now, on the other hand, if there was an alien or free traders partaking in our adventures, that's a different story. Come by the forums and get to know some of our players. Given our past conversations, and your ideas here, I really think you'd have a good time with us.

This sounds like the type of Fleet I've been looking for. I love RPing in games. So much so that I literally have a biography for every BOFF on my ship. And a believable one, kinda make up for my Alien captain's somewhat-stretching bio.

I'd even be willing to fly a lower-tier ship for the sake of RP, since I doubt any fleet would be entirely top-of-the-line ships.

Do I apply through your website, or by hunting someone down in-game?

Oh good attention to detail there. I have no IC justification for actually using the Tholian ship (and don't really like the interior) but it was a good means to demonstrate that "carriers don't suck" and innovation triumphs over uniform linear thinking.

The Fed side doesn't have a true assault carrier unlike the Klingons with their demon fish but when I saw "Commander Universal Boff" I went "hmm" and made it work just for fun.

Logically such a boat wouldn't exist on Federation orders of battle at all - they wouldn't build anything that looks like an arsenal ship full of TCMs and kamikaze drones, but for battle simulation purposes it could be a splendid what if ship concept.

Which could be easily (relatively speaking) RPable because the STFs we play nowadays really do resemble combat simulations. They are too linear and non dynamic to pass off as real battle re-enactments as we know from Trek canon.

Things heat up on New Romulus, as the nefarious Ebon Wing Syndicate makes a move on the new Romulan capital. Could this congolmarate of smugglers, scientists and pirates be backing the Tal Shiar in it's bid to regain control of the Romulan people?

Admiral Hunter, right now I'm on New Romulus. They found out I work for someone else, they don't know for whom yet and I try my best to not let them find out. But I left for them some leads to make them believe that I was working for Toddman.

During my escape I had to fake my death for first time in dockingbay explosion at Drozana. It damaged few Ebon Wing smaller crafts and killed or injured around 30 Ebon Wing agents and hired thugs. First I escaped to Cardassian Space, so I could call few of my old contacts for help. But just after a week Ebon Wing found me again. I managed to escape them, faking my death for second time. Just after that I traveled to Risa to get new surgery to change my appearance. With new face I decided to follow Ebon Wing to Tau Dewa. I figured that they won't be looking for me just under they noses. Also I didn't contact you to reinforce believe that I was working for Toddman.

For now I found out that Ebon Wing sold some informations about Starfleet's and KDF's forces helping Romulans at New Romulus to various Romulan factions. I also saw one Ebon Wing agent meeting with Romulan women. From her behavior and fact that she almost cought me observing them, I assume that she was a member of Tal Shiar. That makes situation very dangerous, because now Tal Shiar can monitor situation on New Romulus without risking their agents and thanks to Ebon Wing noone can be sure how much they know about moves of Starfleet and KDF forces.

Unfortunately Ebon Wing agents found out that someone is gathering informations about them. I'm not sure if they know its me or if they know that I'm the same person who infiltrated them on Drozana. I'm affraid I will be in need for fast exctraction from New Romulus. Right now I'm looking as human posing as civilian worker helping at building site of new Romulan Capital.
