I'm "new" player (ok, I've started playing STO around December), but I enjoy it mainly coz I've always wanted to be "Capitan of my own ship" and think STO gave you a RPG possibilities to feel like such Capitan.
Wondering if there is any topic/sub-forum where players gave links to theirs websites/blogs/post where they "rp" theirs characters, write about theirs missions, bridge officers ect. ect. just like in "Capitan's Log"? Or maybe topic where players share theirs character screenshots or uniform variants?
Also noticed that many players have signatures with their "crew" (like "bridge officer 1 name" + chef medical officer ect.)
I think it's awesome and would be interesting to read others "adventures"
I'd recommend you take a look at the Literary Challenges in the Ten Forward section of the forums. While not exactly Captain's Logs, they are short stories detailing incidents that a ship and crew have been in.
Also, the 'Starfleet RPG' thread that is also in Ten Forward is sort of a play-by-post roleplay that is running at the moment.
And finally, you may want to keep an eye on people's forum signatures. I have seen a few links to fan fiction (and indeed was inspired to write my own. Work in progress can be seen by clicking my signature) that could be of interest.
In-game, if you click on the Logs section, I think at the bottom, there is an option to add an entry of your own. It'll even calculate the stardate for you. :-) But no one else can see it, which sucks.
You can also join the "STORP" global channel. It's a channel for people who like to RP in-game.
It'd be awesome if we had a wiki website or something set up where people could make entries for their characters, ships, logs, etc. I bet we could get one set up on wikia if anyone was interested.
