Star Trek Game Looking For Players
« on: August 02, 2009, 06:47:06 PM »
Hi all, we have a Star Trek game going on, and we need some new players, since some of our members have had to drop it. Check it out: Star Trek: Star Base Tesla.

Any questions, feel free to drop me a PM, ask here, or in the game's OOC thread.

See our current roster, so you can see what positions are open.

EDIT: Here's some more info from our original interest thread:

So, this topic got me thinking. Who's on board for a freeform Star Trek RP? We could be a space station; I'm thinking of playing the Captain in charge of it, and ocassional NPCs... and others could play other officers, diplomats from the Klingon or Romulan empires, merchants, civilians, etc...

No overarching plot, just character situations, if anyone feels like actually GMing plots, it'd be cool. NO godmoding, please.

Setting? Some border space space station with lots of civilian traffic, right after the Dominion War. Any takers?

Canon Guidelines: We accept anything that's on Memory-Alpha, subject to approval by us three, based on how we feel it meshes with the game.

When it comes to non-canon stuff (preferably from Memory Beta, which has stuff from the books, games and comics), we'll accept stuff for review, but there are no guarantees.

We don't want to run a anally-tight canon game; like this fleet I play in where they didn't allow me to name a runabout after a river in Andoria because all the runabouts seen on screen had been named after Earth rivers; but I don't want stuff to get too out of hand. Stray away from canon too much, and you end up with wacky shit like this.

UPDATE: Here's a sample profile form (this is not my character for the game):

Name: Dev Em
   
Nickname: None.
   
Position: Medical Officer

Race: Bajoran

Gender: Male

Age: 43
   
Place of Birth: Bajor
   
Hair: Black, greying at the temples
   
Eyes: Black
   
Height: 6'
   
Weight: 170 lbs
   
Languages: Bajoran, Cardassian, Federation Interlingua, Vulcan
   
Marital Status: Single
   
Physical Description: Dev Em is a tall man around 6 feet, slender and fit, he wears his black and blue medical uniform with only two full pips on his collar, something a bit strange to behold as he is a mature man, in his late 30s/early 40s. His jet black hair is cut short, and it matches the shade of his eyes, as black as starless space, with a depth that shows you this man has seen a lot of things, and even though many weren't pretty, he hasn't let that fact beat him down. On his right ear, wich is scarred, he wears a simple, silver traditional piece of Bajoran jewelry, with a single, short chain and small brace huging the carthylage.
 
Psychological Profile: Em has been through many things, has lost loved ones many times, but he hasn't let that turn him into a bitter man, he's a spiritual person, reveling in his religiousity, but he is not boring. He is cheery and likes to have fun, and, even if he's a MD, he would make a good counselor, as he can listen very well, and provide advice.
 
Family History: Em's family is of the Dem d'jarra, a "clan" of philosophers and poets. His parents, Dev Jar and Dev Ra, where members of a civilian, pacifist group that spoke against the Cardassians during the early years of the occupation. That caused them, and Em's older sister, Dev Kai, to be arrested and sent to the Cardassia IV labor camp.
 
Personal History: After being left alone at 13, Em joined, or rather was taken into the Shakaar resistance cell, where he became friends with some of the older members, like Kyra Nerys and Lupaza, who built him a new earring when his original one was torn from his ear by a Cardassian soldier.

He grew up under the wing of Tel Sur, the main medic of the Shakaar cell, whose d'jarra was one of the most respected line of healers of the planet. Under Tel's wing, Em became skilled as a medic, treating his fellow resistance members. He also participated in many strikes, killing Cardassians when needed, but he didn't like it a bit. That doesn't mean he can't defend himself: he spent' his adolescense and early adult life as a resistance fighter.

Life as a resistance fighter wasn't easy, and he lost many loved ones, included the girl he loved, Par Nima. He still remembers her scream dying under the fire of a cardassian gun....

After the Withdrawal, he graduated as an MD specializing in emergency room work, and remained on Bajor, working at the Ilvian Medical Complex (as well as on other places such as Deep Space Nine, where he met Dr. Julian Bashir). Many years later, after everything was settled, he felt the need to travel, but he didn't want to abandon his medical career. So he decided to join StarFleet.

He went through a two year course at StarFleet medical, where he caught up with standard Federation procedures, with no problem, Bajoran medical sciences being very advanced. He served first on board of the USS Pasteur, a medical vessel, then went back to his planet to serve on DS9, then serverd on board of the USS Drake, and has now been transferred to the USS Medusa.

After a brief period at the USS Medusa, where he served as Acting Chief Medical Officer, he was transferred to the USS Philista, a medical ship, where his talents as a field doctor and researcher were put to use.

During his time on the Philista, among other things, he developed a cure for a virus that a race of alien creatures had unintentionally infected the humans at the Caldos IV colony. He developed the cure for the mutated strand of the virus. His knowledge of xenobiology, together with his experience with bio-engineered weapons was what helped the most, for the virus was completely alien and at the same time engineered for human physiology.

Just one year after joining the Philista's crew, he was offered a teaching position at Starfleet Medical, due to his outstanding abilities as a field doctor. He took it, and spent three years there, until he felt the need again to be out in the stars, and asked for a transfer. He was offered the position of CMO on the USS Hiei, and finally given a promotion to Lieutenant, albeit acting.
 
Academic Records

Em's specialties in medicine are obviously field medicine and emergency room procedures, but he's also a good doctor to have around people, treating families and the like. He also has a degree in xenobiology, being very interested on how life got started all around the galaxy.

Check the character thread (by clicking on any of the character names up there) for examples of character sheets. What time periods are you familiar with?

Honestly? I use to watch TNG religiously and have seen all the movies. Other than that I've watched episodes here and there of the other series' and read a lot of the books, including a few on the Dominion War. With google/wiki i should be fine. I'll take a look at the characters and send you a PM later.

I tried getting a Star Trek game going on another forum not too long ago. Didn't work out. But I still have a pretty good grip on my favorite NPC's - one was the captain of the ship, and the other was a male Bajoran counselor. I could easily adapt the captain idea to another position. Would you allow someone to play more than one character?

Grdell, maybe you don't need to adapt your ship Captain to another position. ;D We have a ship that is attached to Starbase Tesla and Paladin recently dropped the game, therefore said ship has no Captain. :)

Secondly, yes, Dok has allowed people multiple characters as long as it's kept within reason (say up to 3 characters per player). And oh, yes, we could use a Counselor as well. ;D

Honestly? I use to watch TNG religiously and have seen all the movies. Other than that I've watched episodes here and there of the other series' and read a lot of the books, including a few on the Dominion War. With google/wiki i should be fine.

I don't know if you heard about it, but www.memory-alpha.org is a pretty good and canon source for all things Trek. ;)

I know that E hates bumping, but I merely wanted to point out that we have just today moved to our own board (FOUND HERE) and officially got the status of big group, which means only few minor changes.

What still doesn't change, though, is that we are still looking for players who are interested in taking their part in our game. >:)

Within reason you can be any species you want and not necessarily a Starfleet personnel - the Starbase has a lot of possibilities open for civilians of any species, color, religion and sexual orientation. :-)

In fact, the base itself is close enough to the frontier that you can readily create a species of your own! Within reason, of course! :P

I know we had a difficulty last time I played in your game. If you would consider a new idea how about a young merchant in a small one woman maybe with a companion from time to time merchant trading ship. A thrown together little vessel using war surplus parts and her own elbow grease.

Not a super craft think a ship that ,er, it flies and carries cargo with some defenses. Not a big ship she only had her war mustering out benefits and some contacts but it makes her money.

No use biting off too much this would be easy to run and not be unfitting. She would be either human or maybe a trill (unjoined) I like the spots.

If not its ok but she would not be Starfleet but have a good enlisted record but from a merchanting family. Overall very modest.

I'll think of something.  I'm sure a few gorn got it into their scaled heads to join Starfleet after that little misunderstanding with that weird talking Captain in the yellow shirt who slew one of their heroic spaceship captains.

Not sure what department, Science maybe?

What do you think of a Denobulan guy for Counselor? Anyone who can juggle five marriages could certainly do something as simple as keeping a space station sane! ;)
