Once you've submitted your application, respond to this thread and we shall get your on your way with a quick bit of sample poosting. Depending on how hectic real life is ATM, this orientation process should take no longer than 48 of your "hours". At which time you'll hot in a shuttle and be whisked away to your ship. Below you'll find an outline of the orientation process.

Step 1: Make sure you're familiar with the basics of ST:2255 canon, I.E… "You know we play in the 23rd century right?" You can get caught up on where we are here…. 2255... A FAQ for N00bs

Step 2: A brief bit of posting to get you comfortable in your (character's) skin. (Especially if you want to play a canon character.) This will be department based, I.E. If you're an engineer.. perhaps a warp core breach or something simple like that.

Step 3: Let's GO! You'll be directed to your ship, wherein you will throw off the repressive shackles of orientation and be free to roam the stars with your new pals. Bon Voyage!

As we aren't currently bristling with crew, I've decided that the commanding officer and much of the senior staff will be played as NPCs. That means you get to write your own orders and keep yourself active in the game. If someone creates a senior officer and it's a role you wanted for yourself, we'll work out OOC how your character replaces the existing one. I'm betting on death of the latter.

U.E.S. Archer Crew Manifest by JayBee14JayBee14, 19 Nov 2014 11:17

San Fransisco, Earth
EBS Special Correspondant Charlotte Sumner

It is a watershed day for all the denizens of United Earth today, and for the Federation at large. Representatives from all five member worlds were on hand today for the christening of Earth's first Warp 5 capable ship, the E.S.S. Yorktown. "The Fighting Lady", as she's come to be known in her former life has been cleared for trial runs and stands as the culmination of the late Henry Archer's lasting achievment. I believe that I speak for all the Earth's people when I say that I wait with baited breath to see what discoveries this fine ship will make early next year when she begins her mission of exploration.

In related news, the commander of the NCC-05 has been announced and this reporter can think of no one more appropriate.


That's right ladies and gentlemen. One of the may heroes of the recent war, and sone of the late Henry Archer himself, UEDF Captain Jonathan Archer will be commanding the Yorktown as she boldly goes where only dreams have been. Captain Archer could not be reached for comment, but a Starfleet source has informed me that the Captain will begin selecting a crew immediately.

Stay tuned to EBS for updates!

Yorktown Crew Manifest by JayBee14JayBee14, 16 Nov 2014 08:59



Declaring it a landmark day in the history of each of their worlds, five envoys today breathed life into the fledgling United Federation of Planets with the signing of the new organization's Constitution amid much pomp and circumstance.

"We are truly entering a brave new world of peace, exploration and security with the establishment of this Federation, declared Earth ambassador Thomas Vanderbilt, whose remarks were echoed by representatives from Vulcan, Andor, Tellar, and Alpha Centauri.

"Following the end of your world's war with the unseen Romulan enemy, such a union as we create here today is the most logical course of action any of our peoples can take," added Ambassador T'Jan of Vulcan.

UESPA Maj. Gen. Georges E. Picard, an aide to Vanderbilt, noted afterward the irony of the conference – which met in exactly the same fashion as the founders of the Earth's old United Nations, who came together only 215 years earlier in the same city in the aftermath of the horrors of another costly war.* "What is occurring here today is one sign that some good can come of such a scourge," Picard noted. "We defy anyone, even the Romulans, to test our resolve now for collective security," declared Ambassador Natha Kell of Tellar, while Sarahd of Andor spoke of future greatness for the infant union and predicted rapid expansion. Ambassador Titus Oleet signed for the newly independent Centauri system. Today's events were but the ceremonial endgame for the often-tumultuous negotiations, which began in earnest after the defeat of hostile forces at Cheron effectively ended the Romulan War only a little more than a year ago. Even today, some sources reported a later fracas involving the Tellarite Kell and Sarahd. Although those taking part today waived off revealing many specific details, the five after signing immediately convened the first-ever meeting of the UFP Council long enough to elect Vanderbilt as president, with Sarahd as vice president. Also, the Council sources unanimously voted to continue meeting in San Francisco, with an all-new building in the design stages near the historic old Presidio fort and Golden Gate Bridge. Council sources predicted at least three months would be needed before the fledgling UFP bureaucracy would be ready for business.
