Want to change your character? It’s easy!

Are you tired of the character you’re playing? Maybe you didn’t realize the flaws in the character you created in the Academy and want a fresh start? Luckily, you can change your character at any time provided a few qualifications are met.

Some considerations about changing characters:

  • Are you wanting to change ships?
  • Are you wanting to change duty posts?
  • Are you wanting to start a secondary character?

We have a tutorial on the wiki that will walk you through the simple process of creating a new character, and answer your frequently asked questions about the process.

Click here to head to the Characters Guild on the wiki and read the tutorial about changing characters. The instructions are simple and it only takes a few minutes.


Congratulations to June’s badge recipients

Badges are similar to our Community Awards in that they are awarded for out-of-character (OOC) participation and achievement. However, while Community Awards are bestowed on a yearly basis each June to recognize long-term achievement and outstanding performance among a peer-group, badges are reserved for incremental achievements or singular contest wins.

For the month of June, 2018, we’re happy to report the following badge recipients. Please congratulate them when you have a chance, and thank them for their contributions to the community!

BADGE: Awards Chairperson Awards Chairperson badge, UFOP: SB118
Presented to a staff member that has held the position of Awards Chairperson for an Awards Ceremony. If more than one staff member holds the title, or is appointed an assistant or deputy, all receive the badge.

New donations for June bring us to 30% of our goal for 2019

Huge thanks to Lilith Seir for her donation in June, and to Valin Dermont and Jo Marshall for their continuing monthly donations that are helping to sustain the community. We’re now at just a hair under 30% of the goal amount we need to hit by May of 2019!

Our community is only able to maintain our robust website architecture – which includes an incredibly large wiki, our forums, website, and a number of domain names – with the help of members like you, who donate small amounts a few times a year to get us to minimum cost. We’re all very appreciative of the continued support!

June 2018 post counts

As many of our members enjoy summer barbecues and fireworks, let’s take a look at our fleet simming activity last month! The members of UFOP: StarBase 118 wrote a total of 1,160 sims across seven ships and installations. The average number of sims per ship for the month was 166.

It was a big month for the USS Veritas as her crew took the lead for the first time in total number of sims written. The Veritas crew wrote 214 sims in June. With 193 sims, USS Gorkon produced the second highest number of sims followed by USS Constitution with 175 sims.

Check out some of the highlights of this past month’s simming through our Appreciations forum, where you and your fellow members can nominate sims, great quotes, and other memorable moments for the rest of the fleet to enjoy!


Awards Ceremony 2018 – Duty Post Awards and finale

Welcome to the final day of the awards ceremony. So far this week we’ve announced the recipients of the Staff, General, Length of Service and Special Awards. Today we present the duty post awards. Each award focuses on a different department from the major ones such as medical, operations or engineering to the more unique – like diplomacy, intel or marines. Even civilians have a chance to be recognized for the valuable contributions that can be made to our stories by those who prefer the path less worn.

Each of these awards recognizes a player for excellence in simming their duty post. Since only one award per duty post is given each year, only the very best are chosen and they are highly coveted awards. You’ll see from our spread of winners – who range in rank from Ensign to Captain – that every player has a chance to be considered for one of these by consistently simming to the best of their ability and striving to improve their craft.

In closing this year’s awards ceremony we’d like to thank the people who made this possible and make one final, special presentation. Our thanks and appreciation goes out to:

  • Awards facilitator Rear Admiral Renos, who is facilitating the awards ceremony for the third year running.
  • The Awards Committee, comprised or Rear Admiral Renos, Captains Brell and Sal Taybrim, Commanders Oddas Aria and Maxwell Traenor, who voted on the Duty Post and Special Awards and who volunteered to help pull materials together to help prepare the announcements. They put in a considerable amount of time and effort to help ensure everything was accurate, prepared and ready for awards day. Their help has made this the smoothest awards ceremony yet.
  • The commanding officers of the fleet, who put in a lot of time and effort to review the nominations for their ships and ensure that the right people are selected for awards.
  • The first officers of the fleet, for voting on the staff awards to provide recommendations to the EC about who they should choose to receive each award, for determining the recipient of general awards where their CO was nominated, and writing awards presentations where needed.
  • Captains Nugra and Roshanara Rahman for helping to update the wiki with this year’s recipients.
  • All of you who submit wonderful, heartfelt nominations each year!

Finally, while we’re all rockin’ them feels for all the awesome fun and friendship we’ve got going on here for a crack-a-lackin’ 24 years the awards facilitator, Rear Admiral Renos, would like to give a special shout out to the community’s founder, Fleet Admiral Wolf.

It’s not always easy to see just how much Fleet Admiral Wolf pours into this community because a lot of his tireless work is done in the background. Whether he’s working with the website, forums, WordPress, wiki or other resources we have, he makes sure everyone has accounts, and troubleshoots issues ensuring we can all enjoy everything the community has to offer all of the time. His inbox is always open to everyone, whether you’ve been working as a staff member for years or you’re a brand new ensign. His passion, drive and determination keep this community thriving and going strong in an age where there are more real life pressures, more options for entertainment than ever before. On behalf of the whole community I want to take a moment just to that him for everything he continues to do for us.

Find out who this year’s duty post super stars are first by heading down to the forums today where you can read about and congratulate our talented award recipients. The full awards ceremony is now available, in full, on the wiki.


Awards Ceremony 2018 – Length of Service and Special Awards

Welcome to day three of the annual awards ceremony! Yesterday we announced the recipients of the staff and general awards. Today we’re proud to present the Length of Service and Special Awards.

Our Length of Service Awards recognize folks who’ve hit one of our membership tiers in the last year: 1-year, 3-year, 5-year, 10-year, and now 15-year and 20-year! Special Awards is a catch-all category for awards that don’t fit elsewhere, but mostly entail OOC community innovation and dedication.

Just like with the staff and duty post awards, only one of each award is given each year, with one notable exception: The Xalor Clan Xifilis award, given to any player who has overcome any sort of disadvantage while simming. We don’t compare and weigh one person’s struggles against another but rather award this to all eligible and deserving candidates who are nominated for it.

Head to the forums now to see who received each of the Length of Service and Special Awards from each ship across the fleet, and be sure to congratulate the winners!
