Ask Not What Your Community Can Do For You: Getting Involved

What exactly is it that makes UFOP:SB118 great? Many would say that it’s the sense of community that exists here, welcoming writers from around the globe to participate in a complex, collaborative writing scenario that allows us to build our own world based on the principles of a series that we all know and love: Star Trek.

For those of you who have been with us for awhile and are curious about how you can be a part of this community spirit, we have any number of opportunities for you to participate out of character.

Check out it out on our YouTube Channel to hear from some of our Taskforce facilitators.

Learn more about character goals in our newest podcast segment

With a new year beginning, it’s a good time to start thinking about both short-term and long-term goals for your character. While some conflicts may be coming to a close, others may just be beginning. By evaluating your character’s role aboard your assigned ship as well as the relationships they’ve developed either since the beginning or over the last year, a writer can get a sense of how they would like their character to grow and develop.

That’s why the Podcast Team took a crack at providing some advice for writers on setting character goals. Check out this segment on our YouTube channel.
