Different Time, Different Heroes
The year is 2430 and the mighty United Federation of Planets is bigger and better than ever... well at least bigger. With the expansion of the borders and the enlisting of new, less sophisticated or technologically advanced worlds into its ranks, many believe that the Federation has become too large to properly govern itself. Those who subscribe to this idea use the lack of security present in the outer edge of the Federation to their advantage. Others, mostly those who have their home worlds deep inside Federation territory, believe that the reports of misconduct amongst delegates to the outer regions are greatly exaggerated. Based on what they chose to see and hear, these Council members are confident that the laws of the Federation are being enforced as they should be.
Admiral Charles N. Koniki, once the head of Starfleet Intelligence, believed that the truth was somewhere hidden in the middle. After having seen first hand some of the corruptions spoken about in the outer regions, and inside the Council itself, the Admiral decided to act for the greater good of the Federation and its citizens. Using all of his influence Admiral Koniki managed to have a new SFI base of operations constructed and manned without the knowledge of the new head of SFI. The construction of this base was even kept secret from the greater majority of the members of the Federation Council as well, this to insure the project's effectiveness in fighting corruption from within.
From this new ultra secret base of operations code named 'NEW ALEXANDRIA', the USS ANUBIS and other ships like it patrol Federation space and beyond seeking out the corrupt and dishonest... a task that is proving to be somewhat more difficult than some had initially imagined it to be.
With over 30 years of combined experience, this group has learned what works and what doesn't. There are no Administrators (a few in charge of many), everyone here is equal. From Captain to Ensign, each has a voice and a vote on issues that affect the group as a whole. This forum is meant to be a place where people join for fun, not to deal with someone else's politics.
Members of the group participate through writing email "posts" in which they describe, in a narrative third-person omniscient style, events and actions taken by not only their character but everyone involved in the story. (Imagine writing part of a TV episode, describing everything that you see, hear and even what the characters are thinking).
Unlike many other PBEM RPGs / SIMs / games, this one encourages players to write for everyone thus allowing players to see their own character grow through the writings of others. This permits for a much closer interaction between characters and writers as each learns the uniqueness of everyone's creation. Of course this writing for other characters is not required or forced on anyone, players / writers have the freedom to develop their character and the story as they wish.
Members are asked to write a minimum of a 250 word post at least once a week, although part-time players can do so less frequently. If able to participate more often, members are encouraged to do so, thus adding their unique twists to the ongoing story on a more frequent basis.
So if you have any questions or are interested in joining, do not hesitate to send an email to Francois < firstname.lastname@example.org >. He will be more than happy to get back to you as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours) and answer any and all of your questions.
Our archive is open to the public so feel free to have a look and see what great adventure we are in the middle of.
