Character Creation

Created by Lieutenant Commander Dayar on Mon May 17th, 2021 @ 7:32pm

Making characters for Trek sims isn't too difficult. As long as you follow this simple guideline, players should have no problem thinking of a character concept.

Brie's command staff is very welcoming and inviting of most canon races, as well as original races. However, below is a list of races we do not accept:

* Assimilated Borg
* Omnipotent Beings
* Founders
* No Species that can't survive on a Federation Ship.

In the end, we ask you to use your brain. If it does not make sense, you probably should not pick it. And an addendum to that... If you don't know how to play the race, you may want to stray from it (unless you have someone helping you).

Strengths and Weaknesses

We don't expect novels out of our applicants, but we do ask that your characters are presented with clear strengths and weaknesses. Balanced characters make great characters.

To that end, we want at least 3 Strengths and 3 Weakness in your bio.

Our sim loves to see original characters and backgrounds. As such, we do not allow characters to be related to any of the Star Trek characters seen on the show or movies.

Character History/Service Record

The history is simple. We want close to 300 words that give us important events that led to your character joining the Ship. Other events to place in there are things that may explain a personality quirk or injury. Sky is the limit. We just want to know how your character ticks.

Service Record isn't quite as detailed. Enlisted do spend the first 2-3 years of service in Basic Training (12-16 Weeks), and their Specialty School (6 Months - 2 Years). The more scholastic the school, the longer.

Beyond that postings aren't as constant as RL military, unless you're part of a specialized unit/occupation (Rapid Response Team, Independent Duty Corpsmen, Combat Engineering Corps, Explosive Ordinance Disposal, K-9 Handler...). Most people can stay on the same posting if the CO permits it, for however long they desire.
