What’s the difference between the News Team and FNS?

We’ve heard from some members that it the difference between our News Team and FNS teams can sometimes be a little confusing, so we’re here with a quick explainer to help clarify what you’d be doing if you joined up on either team:

Community News Team
This team is focused on helping to populate our Community News on the main website. Content for this team includes things like interviews with current members, updates about upcoming events like chats or award ceremonies, promotion announcements, and new podcast episode announcements.

This team is important for a number of reasons. Because it posts as often as possible (ideally once a day), it helps to keep our website updated – showing prospective members, and Google, that we’re an active community. And it helps keep the members of our fleet updated about important news and events.

Members of the News Team are expected to help write at least one article a month for the Community News feed.

Federation News Service (FNS)
This team straddles UFOP: SB118 as well as our spinoff sister site, the Federation News Service – an In Character journalism outlet reporting on things that happen in the Star Trek universe that we play our game in. You can think of it as another way of simming, telling similar stories but from the angle of a journalist writing a story as if it were for Associated Press or some other news syndicate in present day.

This team is important because it helps build out our shared universe, while also acting as a funnel or feeder site for our role-playing community, leading prospective members to find us by first reading FNS stories!

Members of the FNS Team are expected to help edit the monthly plot summaries submitted by our fleet of ships, and to also contribute an FNS story as often as possible.

Join a team and help out
Both teams are looking for eager members who want to assist the fleet and are critical parts of keeping our site active and recruiting new members. If you’re willing to help out, submit the form below to let us know and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

We’re thankful for these donors

It’s that time of year when we think about giving back to the people, and organizations that enrich our lives and make them more enjoyable. Who’s brought joy to your life, and how can you thank them for being a part of it?

We’re thankful for everyone who helps us build and maintain this community on a day-to-day basis, writing thrilling and beautiful stories about characters we’ve come to love and even, in some cases, love to despise!

In particular, we want to take a moment to thank those members who’ve donated over the past few months to help us continue toward our 2020 fundraising goal: Jo Marshall, Kayla Drex, German Galven, Ferier Kian, Oddas Aria, and Genkos Adea!

It costs nearly $1,500 a year to pay for the software, servers, and domain names that keep our website online. And all of that money, every year, is raised by our faithful membership and all of that money is used only for maintaining our community assets.

Now we’d like to ask you to join these funding members and help us toward our goal. We still need to raise $709 before May 1, 2020, to ensure we have all the funds we need to pay for our next hosting bill. Can you contribute $10, $20, or $50 today?

We never see your credit card information, and your donation is processed securely by Stripe.


Join us for the fleetwide chat this coming Sunday

We invite all members of our community to join us in the Discord chat room this coming Sunday, for our regularly scheduled get-together, where we’ll talk about what’s happening around the fleet, learn more about each other, and discuss Star Trek!

The 2019 Halloween Avatar Contest award winners are…

The pumpkins have been carved, the candy’s been purchased, the orange and purple light strings have been hung by the fire with care. Now all that’s left to do is announce who won this year’s Halloween Avatar Contest!

Just to reiterate how this works: We have one judge from each ship in the fleet review all the entrants, and rank each ship against the others on two metrics: Originality and Design. We add those two scores together and then multiply it by the crew’s participation in the contest – ships with fewer participants are marked down a certain percentage for each player who doesn’t participate. (We did discount players who had accessibility challenges.)

I’m very happy to report that six out of our nine installations had 100% participation, and another had 91% participation, so a great year for fleet-wide participation in the contest! Unfortunately for some of the crews that didn’t have full participation, that number did end up affecting their ranking. Keep that in mind for next year!

Without further ado, click here to see who won this year’s Halloween Avatar Contest, and congratulate the winners!
