A very large part of Starbase 118 exists within the community and the individual writers who comprise the different ships of the Fleet. Each character is different, just as each writer is different. We each come to this focal point, a central place in space and time, for various reasons and from geographically diverse locations, from differing walks of life and with various beliefs, but perhaps the best part about it all is that we each find something special here as well.
While the game, and the community, revolves around the ideas that one man created in the 1960’s, our members and writers have not only brought their own flavor of Trek to Starbase 118, but they’ve each taken something away that really sticks with you. What brought you to the Fleet? What have you taken from the experience? More importantly, what has changed between now and the day you joined?
Each one of us experiences things slightly differently, but we’re all privy to many of the same things. With an 18 year history, the possibility to be with the Fleet for many years into the future exists. And as time passes, not only do our characters grow, but we grow as well. Whether you’ve built friendships, learned about yourself or your writing, found some insight on life, leadership, or anything else, you can record it all in the Starbase 118 Memory Book.
Designed for the many members of the Starbase 118 Fleet, the Memory Book is a simple and easy way to record some of your most important thoughts as you enter the Fleet and then again as you grow with it. You can return to your page over and over to see where you started, and compare with it just how far you’ve come. As a sort of scrapbook, the Memory Book serves as insight into the rich past that Starbase 118 really does carry with it throughout time allowing you to see not only your own past, but to get some insight on the players you write with on a day to day basis here.
While not required, participation is simple. Visit the main Memory Book page for simple, step by step instructions on setting up your Memory Book page today. A year from now, you will be glad you did as you look back and see the humble beginnings from which we all come.
