Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

Hey Trekkies, I'm in the planning stages of a TOS Movie Era Simming site and am looking for anyone who'd like to help build it. I have webspace and forums set up already. What I really need is help in getting the website built up and recruiting. My goal is to create a Trek Writing community. I'm not looking to get into a Bravo Fleet, Obsidian Fleet, et al. type set up. There will be a few admins to maintain the site and moderate the forums, but other than that there won't be any "admiralty" or any kind of hierarchy. I have a site wide universal backdrop that is a hodge podge of ideas from several different sims and players over the past few years that I would love to put together in mind, but nothing absolutely concrete as yet. Here's a short synopsis.


The year is 2289. (100 years earlier than most of your sim fleets running the Post Nemesis timeline.) In 2189, the Starship Endeavor, NCC-06, found a stable spatial anomoly on the Beta Quadrant;s unexplored frontier. After sending several probes through the anomoly, and recieving telemetry back, the Endeavor's crew learned that the Anomoly was a wormhole that led to an unexplored area of space. Before they were able to discover just where it lead, it closed. But contained in the probe's telemetry were visuals of other probes sent through, launched some fifty years earlier by Klingons. The Endeavor reported their findings to Starfleet Command and the matter was shoved to the back burner.

In 2290, the Anomoly opened again. This time there was a monitoring station nearby and a great deal more was learned about the Area of space on the other side of the anompoly, now called "The Rabbitt Hole" by the Starfleet Research teams assigned to study it. Probe Telemetry revealed a Star system near the far opening with an inhabitable planet. Without making it known throughout the Federation, Starfleet quickly sent three ships through the Anomoly and all arrived safely on the other side. Their mission was to set up a base of operations on the other side of the Anomoly and begin prepping for a colony expedition the next time the anomoly opened in 2289. Due to the unique nature of the mission, the crews of those three vessels were allowed to bring their immediate families with them. The Ptolemy Class supply ship was fitted with enough supplies and building materials to construct an outpost on the inhabitable planet. After the first three ships arrived, their findings and sensor telemetry revealed many discoveries, and several more questions about the area of space they'd come to inhabit. The biggest question was, Where are we? Navigational sensors revealed that the area of space on the other side of the Rabbit Hole was outside of the Milky Way Galaxy. When the Rabbitt Hole closed after being open for some 10 days, that mystery was still without an answer.

After the anomoly closed, Starfleet Command began putting together a colony expedition for 2289. It was named Distant Shores, and would be passed off to several different administrators before the Rabbit Hole opened again on 24 May 2289. There would be upwards of ten thousand colonists, Starfleet crews, and scientists going through when the anomoly opened again. And they had fifty years to prepare.


We're going to begin our story in 2290. Almost a year after the expedition arrives and begins settling the planet and exploring the surrounding space. I see this type of simming as a kind of homage to the original Trek, in that we'll be exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new civilizations instead of re-hashing the same old races, friends, villains, and stories that have been done before. Each race that we encounter will be created by us, and I already have several in the works. So if you loved the old school Trek of the movie era, and would like to be a part of a new community from the ground up, please shoot me an e-mail at, and or reply to this thread. Like I said, we're very much in the planning stages at this point, and I am hoping to get something up and running by October, if not before.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to working with you!
