Character Creation

Character creation is the first step that any player takes when joining an online role playing game and is one of the most fun parts of the process. Your character biography lays the ground work for the character that you're going to play within the group. Over time your character biography will change a bit as new experiences are had and as you flesh out your character more through the (hopefully) years you play the character. As the first part of your adventure with this group your character biography will be reviewed by the Commanding Officer of the game that you choose to join. Try to avoid one word answers if possible as you are designing the character that you will be playing.

Background Rules

  • No players under the age of 18 will be accepted at this time.
  • All characters must be, at minimum, 21 years of age or older and should have already graduated from Starfleet Academy.
  • No assumption should be made on the rank of your character. Your character's rank will be determined based on your character biography and is at the discretion of the Captain of the game. Ranks of Commander and above are approved by a majority of game moderators.
  • No player may play a canon Star Trek character nor should you request to play the descendant of a canon character.
  • Character species of your own creation are permitted; however, characters whom are Liberated Borg, Omnipotent, or Shapeshifters will not be approved at this time.
  • We reserve the right to employ a trial period for your character before granting full membership.
  • Remember, aside from the real world information section, this biography is about your character and not you.
