Wiki highlight: Duty posts

Share this:

We first brought our wiki online in 2004 and since then have been building out a vast store of knowledge both about the In Character universe we write, but also about the Out Of Character community that we’re building. Nearly any question you have about how our group works can be answered somewhere on the wiki, as long as you know where to find it!

In this month’s wiki highlight column, we’re focusing on our duty post area. Click here to open this area on the wiki and take a look.

If you’re looking to improve your writing when it comes to how your character performs their job in Starfleet, the duty post area of the wiki is your first stop. Over the past 15 years we’ve built an incredible resource for each duty post that members can play, providing detailed information about what characters in each role do, the courses characters would take at the Academy to end up in this role, and much more.

You’ll even find a list of the officers in each duty post who are currently playing in the fleet, as well as links to the Memory-Alpha pages of characters from each Star Trek series who played those duty posts, so you can read more about what their characters were like, what their backgrounds were, and anything notable they did on the show that could help inform your own character’s growth and development.

Learning how to play your character’s duty post is an important part of the promotion process, so take a few minutes today to browse the duty post area relating to your character!
