Rules

Code of Conduct
1) Be respectful to each other! Harassment and discrimination will not be tolerated here.
2) This sim is rated 16+. Rule of thumb here is your scenes shouldn't go further than what you would see in Star Trek. Fade to black if things need to go beyond what is accepted.
3) Have fun!

Players
1) Communication is important! Please let the CO or XO know if you need to be away. We'll make arrangements that work for everyone.
2) Players are expected to post at least once or twice a month (this will not be enforced if players are part of big joint posts that are taking time), and should reply to TAGs promptly within two to three days.
3) Please keep in mind the format this sim is being written in. Players are expected to write in full sentences in the past tense. Think of it like you're reading an excerpt from a book or novel.
4) Make sure to put down a title, time stamp, and location in the appropriate fields in your posts.
5) Don't be afraid to talk with the Command Staff if you are having trouble coming up with ideas for posts, or if something is bothering you about the sim. We are here to help you out!
6) Near the end of a mission (usually 15 days prior), a role call will be sent to everyone to ascertain whether or not they will continue on to the next mission. Failure to answer the role call will mean your removal from the sim.
7) If a player hasn't logged into the site for a period of one month, and has failed to answer any PMs or E-Mails sent to them by the command staff, they will be removed from the game.

Characters
1) Players own their own characters and NPCs.
2) NEVER write for someone else's character unless you have received permission from them.
3) If you want to create an NPC in a particular department, make sure to ask the department head first to make sure they're okay with it.
4) Please keep in mind the time period you are simming in. Some things which might be normal to say or do today, may not be in the future.
