The year? 2401 The place? Talamora-Fleet Command HQ, The name: Starfleet Command Integrated Sites! ¿Beginning Janruary 1, 2009 an old Fleet will be relaunching. ¿That's right, S.F.C.I.S is back! ¿Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of adversity, we are re-emerging with a revamped FleetComm HQ.

The Storyline? ¿The midst of a war. ¿In early 2400 the Thrull and Dominion Alliance began their invasion into Federation territory, and by mid year of that year they reached the Alpha Quadrant and Sector 001. ¿FleetComm HQ was forced to evacuate, but they were a bit late as the Enemy Alliance arrived just as they were leaving. ¿Eight ships where there to defend the evacuating Admiralty, out of those eight ships, three survived. ¿Now, after several months Fleet Admiral Amy Hondo has managed to reach safety on a little known Federation Member World...Talamora and Starfleet FleetComm HQ has been rebuilt and by sheer luck, restaffed. ¿Now we are currently looking for command line officers, lucrative positions in the midst of a war. ¿The first position we are looking for in Head of Starfleet Research and Development. ¿In this position, the rank of Captain or Commodore will be granted.(Commodore is NOT the rank of Rear Admiral. ¿Rear Admiral carries two boxed pips, Vice Admiral 3, Full Admiral 4, and Fleet Admiral 5. ¿That is our pip system) ¿For this position, a simmer must have atleast one years experience simming and currently be active on one active site. ¿The position of Head of Research and Development is a very lucrative position, as the officer in charge, a simmer will be allowed to develop weapons and technologies ideas for the ships of the Fleet, and to present them to the Admiralty Staff. ¿ The second command position we are looking for, is much more than Head of R&D. ¿We are currently seeking out simmers for two Starship command positions. ¿For a simmer to be eligible for these, they must have atleast 6 months simming experience and currently be active on one active site, and be an Executive Officer on another. ¿The reason for this, is the Commanding Officer must be active in order to keep one's crew active, and by showing that the simmer has command experience and is active, it shows a willingness to devote time to a Command. ¿If any of these positions sound like something you would be interesting, come apply today at S.F.C.I.S

S.F.C.I.S

Yeah and just cause we never saw a Commodore, does not mean that they did away with them. It is still an important Rank in any navel system. Shuttle just has no idea. He thinks he needs to see it to know it still exists...

And don't even get me started on the whole issue of RPG's with Admiral's in command of ships - there is no example of this happening in Trek


Star Trek 1, 2, and 3 buddy... Admiral Kirk... so much for your canon knowledge

AND in First Contact, Riker says "Sir, the ADMIRAL's ship has been destroyed"

Shuttle, Kirk did not take a temporary reduction in rank when he took command of the Enterprise from Captain Decker.  Spock has command of Enterprise in TWOK, Kirk never really has command in the second movie except at Spock's insistance. And I quote, "To accept a promotion was a mistake, command is your first, best destiny." (this quote may not be exactly as it was stated).  We all know Kirk stole the Enterprise in TSFS, and in doing so led to his demotion; which however, he did not recieve until the end of ST: TVH.  The point is, up until the end of the fourth movie, Kirk held the rank of Admiral...

And as far as criticizm, Abby is right..it's not your place to tell her how she should place the ranks on her site.  You simm how you want to on your sites and she'll simm the way she wants to on her sites.  Simple as that.

No such rank as Commodore from TNG onward. Obsolete rank.

And whilst the title of Fleet Admiral may have been used, no Admiral has ever been seen wearing a five-pip bar on their collar.

not true, in that episode of the younithing admiral he has 5 pips it is seen as a stretched pip bar.

Am also Trek fan of many years who follows canon, and regardless of what you may think, a former co-manager of a very sucessful RPG that ran for over five years (and didn't need to resort to rank sillyness).

Here's a question: who cares? It's a GAME. If you like the concept, join. If you don't, don't. It should never be any more difficult than that.

If you look at the Star Trek video games, they make up a lot of stuff and it is considered non-canon - why should a game such as a Role-Playing Game follow canon if a video game like Star Trek Klingon Academy cannot? ¿In Star Trek Klingon Academy they have Marines, but it is not canon to Star Trek.

Shuttle, you can critize all you want and that's cool - you're pointing out a lot of non-canon stuff, but this is a 'game' and it is made to be 'fun' so bending canon isn't so bad. ¿Video games can do it, why not an RPG?

For example:

the USS Adams-A is a Sovereign-class Starship in the 24th century - clearly not canon because the USS Adams-A does not exist in actual canon... so if people can create their own ship names why can't they create their own canon elements and add Marines or even create their own races to RPGs?

Thank about what you're saying, Shuttle

A game based on a TV show that basically spans 40 years and has established canon.

Games are not canon. They never will be. Not ever ever. They're games. It doesn't matter what someone does in an online Star Trek rpg because it will never effect Star Trek canon.

This is like saying you can't play Monopoly with House Rules because it flies in the face of the written ones, like this actually has any bearing whatsoever on any aspect of anyone else's life.

These are games. They're meant to be fun. If you don't like it, don't play. Simple.

Exactly. ¿Following canon just confines you to limitations. ¿There is enough evidence that the game is Star Trek whether or not violating canon. ¿So what someone makes up a rank called "Supreme Commander", so what an Admiral commands a starship? ¿It doesn't in anyway affect the established canon.

If we followed canon, then we can't use made-up ship names or.. we can't create our own characters. ¿If we can make up all that, why can't we make up our own rank or our own alien races? ¿

Look at all the ships in the video games for instance, once again like Klingon Academy, made up ships like Yamato-class and Lexington-class - still a fun game isn't it so how will a 5-pip Fleet Admiral affect the game? ¿It wont.
