Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

The USS-Magellan is looking for crew. Having just been cleared the Captain and Executive officer still have a few open positions.

Currently the magellan is in drydock ready to start her system and weapon drills and then will start her assignment on a geological survey.

The Magellan is an intrepid class ship which uses Nova 1.2. The current openings are:

Chief Flight control officer
Originally known as helm, or Flight Control Officer, CONN incorporates two job, Navigation and flight control. A Flight Control Officer must always be present on the bridge of a starship. S/he plots courses, supervises the computers piloting, corrects any flight deviations and pilots the ship manually when needed.

The Chief Operations Officer
has the primary responsibility of ensuring that ship functions, such as the use of the lateral sensor array, do not interfere with one and another. S/he must prioritize resource allocations, so that the most critical activities can have every chance of success. If so required, s/he can curtail shipboard functions if s/he thinks they will interfere with the ship's current mission or routine operations.

The Chief Operations Officer oversees the Operations department, and is a member of the senior staff.

Chief engineer
The Chief Engineer is responsible for the condition of all systems and equipment on board a Starfleet ship or facility. S/he oversees maintenance, repairs and upgrades of all equipment. S/he is also responsible for the many repair teams during crisis situations.

The Chief Engineer is not only the department head but also a senior officer, responsible for all the crew members in her/his department and maintenance of the duty rosters.

The Chief Strategic Operations Officer
is responsible for coordinating all Starfleet and allied assets in within their designated area of space, as well as tactical analysis (in the absence of a dedicated tactical department) and intelligence gathering (in the absence of a dedicated intelligence department).

Chief Counsellor
Because of their training in psychology, technically the ship's/facility's Counselor is considered part of Starfleet medical. The Counselor is responsible both for advising the Commanding Officer in dealing with other people and races, and in helping crew members with personal, psychological, and emotional problems.

The Chief Counselor is considered a member of the Senior Staff. S/he is responsible for the crew in his/her department. The Chief Counselor is the Counselor with the highest rank and most experience.

We also still have almost all assistant department heads positions open.Also a great way to start in starfleet is to try and go through the ranks and join up as an enlsited crewman and learn your job on the ship. So if your interested in a new ship with a new crew then join or if your have been around and want to work your way up then join!. Don't hesitate to sign up*.

Hope to hear from you,

Lieutenant James Finnigan
Executive Officer

* The Magellan is a part of pegasusfleet. It is possible that you have to attend the academy first.

Alliance Fleet


Throughout history, few have had the power to control the destiny of their fellow kind. Crew Member, the blood and heartbeat of any vessel skilled hands at a moments notice. Department Head, the backbone of operations on any starship, dedication without hesitation. Commanding Officer, the calm during the storm, sacrifice and fortitude.

In a time of unsettled disputes and mounting tensions, in an era of exploration and advancements, the vessels and stations of the Federation are the foundation, the men and women who serve within them our guardian angels.

Alliance Fleet, the front line of the Federation, the break wall holding back the flood. War always looms, soldiers are needed. Discoveries and advancements await, explorers are created. Join the men and women of Alliance Fleet today, and be one of the few who have a say over the destiny of the Federation.

Join the crews of...
Deep Space 31, Starbase Sabre, USS Warden, USS Hotspur, USS Tiberius, USS Daemon, USS Ark Royal, Marsia Academy, or the SS Stormbraker.

Alliance Fleet is also always seeking capable Commanding Officers and Crew.

Starbase Sabre
"Like the General said, this has been a long time coming. I used to serve under him, 12 years ago when he commanded the USS Ranger's Creed, and their mission was the same as your is now. Since I found out that he wa back in action, I've been pushing this through the channels. That time has now come. You all are to become the first of a new breed of solider's and agents of the Federation Council. I know that not everyone here works in OSP, but you all are trusted with secret of what happens here on this station and the real reason this station is here. Officially, you all are known by all as Special Tactics and Reconnaissance, Spectre for short. Now, everyone please rise."

It was the year of fire... the year of destruction... the year we took back what was ours. It was the year of rebirth... the year of great sadness... the year of pain... and they year of joy. It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed. The year is 2409. The place: Starbase Sabre

In 2409, the Federation President authorized the formation of a contingent of Elite Special Forces Soliders who answer only to the President of the Federation of Planets. Our missions and our very existence are closely guarded secrets protected by the soldiers themselves. Even our wives cannot not know the truth about our missions and they have secrets of their own. Officially, we are labled as Office of Special Projects (OSP), Project: Sabre. The Sabre is the only ship completely crewed by these Special Operations Operators.
Starbase Sabre is currently a NOVA based game. We are based on an Immense Class Starbase located right outside the Briar Patch. We send teams out from here, to complete their missions. As a play by Nova simulation we require both an excellent written standard and keen interest in Star Trek and Science Fiction. Please feel free to browse this website and that of our parent Task Force and Fleet

We strongly emphasize character development and interaction. Most of our players are veterans with years of simm experience, and we are happy to welcome those new to the hobby! Most of our stories are combat driven with some exploration. Our characters are ever mindful that this is an area of great strife and our presence is all that stands between peace and total chaos.

Looking for all position EXCEPT:
Commanding Officer
Executive Officer
Second Officer
General's Aid
Chief Flight Control Officer
Flight Control Officer
Spec Ops XO
Chief Sec/Tac Officer
Sector Chief of Starfleet Medical
Chief intelligence Officer

Brigadier General Kal Booth
Sabre Base, CO
Alliance Fleet, Chief of Staff

Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

"And now for something completely different."

Hello, I'm Lieutenant Colonel Frank Gentry

» The Rangers are Special Ops
The Starfleet Rangers are a part of Starfleet Command Special Operations Division, located within the former US Military facility at Cheyenne Mountain. The Rangers are made up of small groups of men and woman who form units of teams. Each unit is highly trained, and could be rapidly deployed to wherever they are needed.

Each member of the unit specializes in specific skills, allowing the team as a whole to engage in a variety of conventional, and unconventional special operations and missions.

Essential to the Rangers mission is the fact that they can be rapidly deployed from anywhere, to anywhere. This allows the Rangers to provide real time intelligence back to the fleet commanders that allows them virtually unlimited options in the face of fast paced crises across the Galaxy.

» Rangers In The Beginning
Shortly after the creation of the Federation in 2161, Starfleet realized there was a need for there to be something to conduct operations that could only be handled by small teams, and would strictly be off the books. While Starfleet Security was adequate at the time to maintain order within the ranks of Starfleet, and while on board the ships of the fleet, and the Marines were capable of fighting off intruders, and in large assaults, there was nothing that could fill the role that they needed. It was decided that in the tradition of the old military establishments, that they would create special operations teams, called Rangers.

The Rangers were originally created to “range” out ahead of the front line vessels to provide intelligence data back to the fleet. From this position, not only could they provide early warning against possible attacks, but they could also help eliminate targets that could possibly cause great damage to Starfleet ships. They were also used to cover the rear as the starships moved on. In offensive ground operations, they were reconnaissance scouts and guides, locating targets for the marines to take care of when they arrived.

» The Dominion War
It was during the Dominion War that the Rangers really shined in a matter of speaking. While before this time the Rangers were used mostly in there traditional roles, as scouts, they were used at times to conduct special operations deep within enemy territory, to eliminate specific targets. During the Dominion War this type of operations increased. Because the Dominion was far more advanced military wise then some of there previous encounters, Starfleet started to do more jump in, take out the target, and jump out sort of missions.

» Post Dominion War
After the Dominion War, the Alpha, and Beta, Quadrant powers turned to rebuilding from the damage that they had sustained during the fighting. Because of this, Starfleet returned to there policy of scientific exploration. There wartime ship building, ceased, and was replaced with the building of scientific vessels. With this policy, came the belief that there was no longer a need for the wartime spending in other areas as well, such as Special units. Even though the Rangers had proved themselves time and time again, even before the Dominion War, it was determined since there was no current threat to the Federation, that there numbers would be reduced until there was a need again, if it ever was one. Units were disbanded, and as the philosophy of Starfleet changed, individual members of the remaining units started to be reassigned to different areas.

But new threats have arisen within the Galaxy, and it is up to the Rangers to once again help Starfleet end those threats to the Federation.

The 23rd Rangers, known as Striker, is one such unit...

Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

Watchtower Station, the successor to Task Force Gamma's USS Hartington Simulation, is recruiting Officers, Crew and Civilians for its continued exploration of the Star Trek Universe! Set in 2385, the crew of the USS Hartington find themselves nearly ten years in their future faced with a vastly different and ever-changing universe. The Gamma Quadrant has become a new beachhead for the Federation's continued expansion for resources after the Borg Invasion in Star Trek: Destiny and Watchtower Station is the center of those operations.

We strive for a diverse crew of Officers, Enlisted personnel, Civilians and non-Federation Aliens to flesh out the stories we're telling, aiming for a deeper storytelling experience in the true vein of Star Trek. One of the goals of Task Force Gamma is to build a strong setting to help build the support structure for the Station and the side-sims such as the Dyson Sphere Research Project, The Federation Marshal Service, the Starfleet Marine Corps and the JAG Team.

Now in our third year, Task Force Gamma Simulations is a member of the Ninth Fleet, a loose organization of independent minded simmers who put the game first, not fleet politics, giving the gamers control over the game.
We accept simmers of all experience levels, from veterans in the gaming community to newcomers who've only just discovered simming. If you're willing to play, we will find a place for you!

We're looking for:

Watchtower Station

Judge Advocate
Support Craft Pilot
Chief Science Officer
Science Specialists and Officers
Civilian Scientists
Security Specialists and Officers
Chief Medical Officer
Medical Officer (M.D.)
Head Nurse
Civilian Physicians
IME (Interspecies Medical Exchange) Physician (May be non-Federation)
Starfleet Corps of Engineers Team Members
Federation Envoy
Deputy Federation Marshal
Members of the Klingon Delegation (Civilian or Military)
Members of the Cardassian Delegation (Civilian or Military)
Members of the Romulan Delegation (Civilian or Military)
Members of the Ferengi Delegation (Civilian or Military)
Civilian Residents
Starfleet Merchant Marine Crew
Orion Syndicate Operative

Starfleet Marine Corps, Eigth Division, Second Brigade, First Regiment

Marines, both Officer and Enlisted

Dyson Sphere Research Project

Starfleet Liaison Officer (Second in Command of Dyson Base)
Chief of Project Operations
Operations Team Member (Civilian) and Officer (Starfleet)
Project Security Officer (Starfleet or Marine)
Science Team Member (Civilian) and Officer (Starfleet)
Chief of Project Medical (Civilian or Starfleet)
Medical Team Member (Civilian) or Officer (Starfleet)

Some positions may only be obtained as secondary posts until more non-standard characters arrive in-game. As our player-base grows we can offer more play time to non-standard characters. As we grow, we will also be looking for players with a fresh outlook on the game to help brainstorm new stories and help tell them. Yes, that means that we're looking for players interested in taking the lead moving forward!

You can visit our gameplay forums at to see how we play. To join, visit our Nova site (still under construction) at or contact the Commanding Officer at for more information!

We hope to hear from you soon!

Re: RPG Recruitment Thread


Mature / PG15+

Hell's-Gate Station
Starbase 666
(Alexandria-Class U.F.P. Outpost/Fleetyard)

(12 July 2376)


Formerly known as Empok Nor, Starfleet felt they needed additional early warning / listening posts to serve the A.Q. Alliance. So, Empok Nor was chosen, and towed from the Trivas Sector for refurbishing as the Corps of Engineers newest peacetime pet-project in the Likara Sector. Dominion and Borg detritus helped Starfleet to realize how best to serve its interests. A station built to handle the overflow from DS9, a jumping-off point to the Gamma and Delta Quadrants, and the Federation.

Also, a headquarters to Starfleet's transport command (circa 2375). Home away from home for tired colonial militias and their suppliers, in addition to supporting a massive hub for restoring confidence in basic civilian tourism throughout the Alpha Quadrant Alliance. The Alexandria-Class features several underslung "Suez Canal-Class" (Nem-type) maintenance berths docked and enveloped within a Nor-Class station's original shield perimeter, allowing for vessels large, medium, and small while enjoying the benefit of a Regula-Class science station's minimal tactical profile and Ournal-Class starbase's facilities and firepower.

There's a number of roles available.

RPG Characters Wanted And Available:

  • Maquis / Mercenaries
  • Bordello Operator & "Adult Entertainers"
  • "Katrina's" Nightclub Operator
  • Pets (Dogs, Cats, Other)
  • Civilians / Family Members
  • Starfleet Intelligence
  • Section 31
  • Department Of Temporal Investigations
  • Promenade Merchant
  • Starbase Command Staff
  • Merchant Marines Group
  • Defense (Starship) Fleet
  • Starfighters / Search & Rescue
  • Colony Governor & Staff Members

Dark Future
Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

Star Trek - Dark Future.

Q has seen the end... He has seen something that will annihilate or corrupt the alpha quadrant so drastically that he has made an attempt to start again by heading back through time, giving the races a chance to overcome the coming darkness... Aboard a neutral station known as serenity created by Q most of the alpha quadrant are able to meet and wage a war of words or form alliances or engage in simple banter, but in this Dark Future nothing is like it should be and at some point the Galaxy may have to unite... but against who and on what side the players will take is as yet unknown.

In this roleplay/strategy game you take control of one of 13 currently available empires. Engage in galactic conquest, colonization and empire building as you expand and meet the races from the Star trek universe. Become a force of starships to be feared or engage in peacekeeping and exploration, perhaps secretive intelligence gathering and sabotage is your empires driving motivation or become a powerful trading empire, whichever they are watch your borders as the other star trek empires are prowling the stars and are controlled by other star trek fans.

Combined with a forum for roleplaying aboard a Neutral space station known as Serenity, you can discuss galactic events, bribe or intimidate other delegates or engage in any form of roleplay as your races leader or delegate.

This game is loosely based on the computer game Birth of the federation and is a empire building game. However we are promoting roleplaying of your characters within the forum and we are willing to listen and expand the game based on player interaction and the game while fully operational slight modifications are still underway.

We hope you will visit this interesting spin on Star trek roleplaying and bring your own unique flavor to its setting.

Re: UFOP: StarBase 118, a Star Trek PBEM RPG

An Interview with Michael Okuda

I can vividly remember my first Star Trek convention in the late 80s where James Doohan was one of the guest stars. Star Trek: The Next Generation was received by fans as a long-awaited return of the beloved world of Gene Roddenberry to television. Long before or any other online retailers, getting your hands on Star Trek memorabilia was a little more challenging than it is today. You could purchase the items at conventions or through catalogs, and for me, the convention I attended was the first time I’d seen a large manual with a beautiful cover and incredible illustrations inside. That book was titled Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual published by Pocket Books. I’d seen Michael Okuda’s name in the credits of The Next Generation episodes, but I’d never learned much about him. When I purchased the technical manual, my eyes were opened to the genius of Mr. Okuda’s vision of the future and to his major contributions to Star Trek.

As I read through the manual and saw Mr. Okuda’s name more and more over the years, it became apparent that he was a true pioneer. Along with his wife, Denise, they went on to write numerous Star Trek stories and serve as advisors for the subsequent television series Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. More recently, Mr. Okuda has been involved with the remastering of the original series on DVD to enhance the special effects, as an advisor to the MMORPG Star Trek Online in its initial stages, and designing logos for NASA.

His most famous contributions to Star Trek include the graphical user interface for the LCARS computer system used on the Enterprise-D and other Starfleet vessels. In appreciation for his contributions in this area, the visual style of the LCARS was named “okudagrams”.

Want to learn more about Mr. Okuda and his memories of working on Star Trek? Read the Michael Okuda interview at UFOP: Starbase 118.

I 100% agree and recommend this sim group. I was a member for many years (Lt. Cmdr. David Bishop - USS Isannah, USS Kodiak, USS Ranger-A, etc) and had tons of fun.

Kids and work prevented me from continuing, but I would do it again if i had time.

Langley Station
Langley Station needs outstanding writers!!

A series of desperate fights. A wounded Captain. A station in shambles. A skeleton crew on a broken station holds open the supply lines to the fleet, desperately fighting along the Kzinti border. Replacements are badly needed and crew wanted to step up and hold the line along your brothers and sisters in the fleet.

My name is Captain Jacob Dewey, I have been the Commanding Officer of Langley Station for a year. We're a smaller SIM, but one that focuses on dramatic writing and a certain degree of realism among the fictional stars surrounding us. Right now we have the following positions open and are about to start the next chapter in a large and complex joint mission.

Chief Operations Officer
Strategic Operations Officer
Chief Engineering Officer
Chief Medical Officer
Marine CO
Marine XO
Marine Gunnery Sergeant
Naval Fighter Group Commander
Temporal Scientist
Chief Security Officer
Chief Tactical Officer
Medical Officer
Marine Command Sergeant Major

So swing by and see if you'll discover a new home.

Re: RPG Recruitment Thread

The Zulu Sector is an area of space in the Gamma Quadrant that is home to dozens of species. It's a densely populated area that remains largely unexplored by the Federation. This is about to change. The 10th Expeditionary Fleet, commanded by Admiral Garen Tal of Trill has been assigned to explore the region and set up a base of operations. The Chara Confederacy, led by the Allixi are wary of the Federation's presence. One of the member races however, the outgoing Arielians have allowed Starfleet to set up an outpost in their area of space. A nomadic group of traders lacking the powerful ships of their Chara brethren, they have much to gain from a strong Starfleet presence in the area.

In addition to the Allixi and the Arielians, there are dozens of other races in the sector, many of them pre warp. Starfleet's mandate here is to explore, and establish good relations with the Chara Confederacy and the other unaligned people in the region.


We currently operate two ship sims with a third in development. If you're looking for a fun place to play, no hassle and a great group of people, look no further! And if you're looking for a place to start your sim, why not give Vanguard a look? Check us out!

or you can hit me up at
