I've noticed I've been doing this a lot with my character to the point where I've created a spreadsheet where it has my bridge and duty officers as my senior crew members which even includes shift rotations for some. I also have been using the game's log system to create a whole bunch of my own captain's logs. Along with this I have written bios for all my bridge officers and my own character.

Has anybody else done this before?

I do. I started out my character with no intent at RP whatsoever. I started making friends in-game, hanging out with them more, then I found the "party scene" which is really quite fun considering it's just a bunch of pixels dancing around on screen even when you add music. I finally wrote a bio for my main as well, haven't started any for my crew yet.

I'd say the spread sheet is a bit much. Aside from that, there's absolutely nothing uncommon about anything that you said.

Most of my main boffs have back stories and I have a full history on my captain, plus a partial background on the symbiont he carries.

Everyone on my ship, my captain, my boffs, even the odd doff I don't want to loose get backstories, personalities and so on. Their bios are all filled out and I sometimes RP with my fleetmates, though not often in game. But when I am flying solo, you betcha I'm rp'ing my captain with my crew.

When I started, I did make logs for each mission and incident. But they started to get heavily repetative due to the nature of the missions, so I kinda stopped that. Though I did make logs when a doff mission went really well (or bad. A Vulcan crewmember died in a lab explosion. There was a log about the funeral services. Poor guy).

Now I finished the missions, I'm mixing it up a little. Instead of rp'ing everyone as a proper starfleet ship, in full uniform, I have relaxed things a bit. Everyone now has different uniforms, usually from the various packs I've unlocked with the in game reasoning it is either the mirror universe version of my characters, or everyone has gone on shore leave for an extended period of time and the uniform code has been relaxed.

Of course, my Klingon I have just started is being fully rp'd. A Klingon that thinks the Empire is only for Klingons, so will be getting rid of any non klingon officers on his ship once he has enough, and he has a youthful appearance but will gradually bulk up and age as I play the missions. He leaves non klingon members of his security team face down in the dirt where they fell.

A Romulan Strike Team, Missing Farmers and an ancient base on a Klingon Border world. But what connects them? Find out in my First Foundary mission: 'The Jeroan Farmer Escapade'

I really like RP in Star Trek Online, especially with the Foundry maps you can make. Ok...they can be a bit limiting, but then again, it's somewhere that roleplayers can meet up and actually RP in different scenarios. Also, you can trigger visual effects to occur as well, so that you can fully immerse yourself in the experience.

I am thinking of making an Alien on either the Federation or Klingon side, but I want my captain to act as a neutral and external alien species. It's going to be difficult setting it up, because every Federation ship has a general theme to it, and the KDF ships are the only ones to feature cloaking technology and that could be a good RP topic to develop.

What do you guys think? Has anyone else thought of creating a 'rogue' faction for RPing?
