UFOP: StarBase 118 RPG


 


We are a community of people who love writing and Star Trek.  We've been together as a group since June of 1994 and have enjoyed years of simming under a highly trained command staff.  Our group offers an extensive and complete training course upon acceptance that will acclimatize you to our rules and ways of simming.  We also offer a very active forum, an online database to organize your character's information, and of course, a ship to suit your simming style.  If you want to learn more, just click on the link above and head to our website.  Take a look at the "Prospective Members Tour" on our home page.  We'd love to have you join our group -- see you soon!

I have been a Star Trek fan since I was a kid, which was just a "few" years ago. My fascination with Star Trek started with the original series, which was in re-runs, and continued with the Next Generation and the motion pictures. Right after I saw the 2009 Star Trek movie on opening day, I felt the desire to connect with other Star Trek fans in some form of gaming atmosphere, and so, I went to the Internet and began looking at what was available. Role playing through PBEM (Play By E-Mail) groups seemed to be the most prevalent way Star Trek fans were connecting and continuing Gene Roddenberry's dream. I found a few web sites that peaked my interest, and I spent some time looking at each one and checking reviews of those groups through other sites. I kept coming back to UFOP: StarBase 118 RPG's web site for several reasons. The home page was professional, there were links to tutorials, a thorough wiki site, forums, and there was a lot of information about the group, which had a history going back 15 years. I decided to apply, and I received a quick and friendly response that I was accepted and would immediately begin training, which consisted of learning how to participate in the group. I completed the training a week later, and I was assigned to a writing group which was writing a story on a starship near Romulan space. It didn't take long before I was participating in a story that allowed me to be involved in a new and evolving Star Trek episode true to Roddenberry's vision. I wasn't involved in writing much until I joined UFOP: StarBase 118 RPG. I never imagined that I would have this much fun writing and contributing to an ongoing story with others who love Star Trek. I have also met others in the group who knew very little about Star Trek at first but contributed as much as anyone else. I look forward to continuing the friendships I've made in this group and continuing to explore the final frontier.

I joined UFOP:Starbase 118 a little over a year ago after searching the web for a top quality play-by-email roleplay. As a keen roleplayer offline and a former member of other SIM groups, I was keen to join a community that valued their players and could provide a high quality experience in terms of Star Trek roleplaying. I was not disappointed. Starbase 118 is rich in resources relating to all aspects of Star Trek and SIMming. The SB118 wiki provides information on Star Trek aliens, ships and technology, as well as information on how to roleplay each duty post. In addition, the main website is home to writing guides and ideas for inspiration, as well as a professionally laid-out forum that provides access to writing competitions, and a chance for your character to interact with any other member of the fleet in an out-of-storyline context. In order to maintain its high standards, the group offers a training program for all new members. At first I thought this would be a little intimidating, but right from the first email I felt like a valued part of a crew, and this continued into my current assignment aboard the USS Challenger. As Lieutenant Commander Tallis Rhul, I currently serve as Second Officer and Chief of Operations, with a number of other characters played by skilled writers who are friendly, and definitely know their Star Trek lore! I have frequently been surprised and entertained by the twists that the other writers have come up with for their characters, and appreciated the chance to interact with them. I have been privileged enough to befriend other members of the fleet during my time here, as there are dozens of different ways to interact with your fellow group members, through the forums, or through various guilds and subcommittees. In fact, I recently started a second player character aboard another ship in the fleet, the USS Eagle, and have been received by the crew with open arms. That's to be expected with SB118. Every member of the admin and command staff is accommodating and helpful. Their expertise and dedication make it a pleasure to be a member of a continually expanding corner of the Star Trek universe.

    I’ve been a role-player in assorted guises for years now, but only recently did I decide to take a look at this whole “play-by-email” thing. I had a snoop about on the net and stumbled on this interesting site – UfoP: SB118. It looked good, and certainly piqued my interest, so I thought I’d give it a go.
    A week later I was kicking myself – Why hadn’t I done this sooner?!? The training got me right into the thick of simming, teaching me the ropes and the guys I was writing with were great fun. Then I got my fleet assignment and I realized the fun I'd had so far was just the start...
    The forum and wiki support has proven invaluable to me, and the players made me feel right at home straight away. Since joining the fleet I’ve made new friends, and have discovered a whole new view of the Star Trek universe, and had a really great time doing it!

Being first attracted by a well-organized website, and a comprehensive Wiki presence, I became a member of UFOP SB118 5 years ago, but soon found the group had many more facets that have proved to be both enjoyable and challenging.

From the week long Academy class that engagingly gave me my first taste of writing with other writers, I have cultivated friendships with people hailing from all over the World who share the same interest in writing as I do. The exposure allows us to learn from each other. The crews I've served with, and the SB118 Staff, have been never ending sources of information and support.

On the SB118 forums we share a portion of our real lives with pictures, good natured banter and thought provoking commentary. Additionally, we are afforded the opportunity to compete with each other in writing competitions.

When I joined I knew very little about Star Trek or futuristic space travel, but through reading the sims of others, and independent research, I can honestly say that the more I learn the more I want to learn.

PERSONAL LOG, STARDATE 238709.01: Ensign Diego Herrera, U.S.S. Eagle When I signed on with Starfleet, my family wanted me to be aware of the dangers that it brought with it, as well as the opportunities to encounter new and interesting humanoid species throughout the galaxy. I had always hoped that my studies in neurology could be furthered by meeting new life out among the stars. When the Captain told us during a staff briefing that we would be meeting members of a prospective new member race for the Federation, I was thrilled. Now I'm not so sure... The Eagle is now host to a group of short humanoids named the Mantarans. They're split into two groups, the surface-dwellers and the aquatics. When the lead aquatic Ambassador requested to be escorted to his quarters, I volunteered, hoping to learn a little about their species. With power-drains beginning to affect the ship after its recent refit, it was decided that a security team should stay with Ambassador Brack, and I volunteered again. Security isn't my remit as a medic, but the Captain did ask me to be a member of the diplomatic party. All was well until the Ambassador insisted that someone join him in his salt bath, and my superiors volunteered me. Now half the ship is going to see me as the Ensign who went hot-tubbing with the goblin Ambassador...

Personal Log, Stardate 238709.13, Acting Lieutenant Junior Grade Tallis Soban recording.

I won't miss the ridges. I won't miss Farius Prime either. They offered to let me keep the uniform, but somehow my position in the Bajoran Militia seems like much more of an attractive job. You know what they say about working from home, after all.

It's been around two days since my exfiltration from the fringes of the Orion Syndicate. Agent Rawson assures me that I won't be followed, that my brother isn't at risk from all of this, but I don't know whether to believe her. Perhaps if we'd met under less hostile circumstances I'd feel more at ease, but I keep reminding myself he's aboard a Starship a long way away from here. They promised I could contact him within the next few days.

The information I gathered from the Syndicate was invaluable. I can't risk recording any of it in this log in case I am captured, or our ship is taken, but suffice it to say that the operatives we were tracking aren't as well hidden as they thought they were. Starfleet has a lead, and it could help to bring them to justice.

When we make Starbase I'll be finding the nearest restaurant and hitting the hasperat, hard. The food on Farius Prime is slop. I'm not settling for replicated either. I'll have a freshly prepared meal even if I have to hijack a galley and do it myself.
