Welcome to the USS Albion!

Welcome to the USS Albion (NCC-3020), a Star Trek role play-by-post/email sim set in the TNG/DSN/VOY era. The Albion is a Galaxy-class starship with a mission of deep space exploration. We like to push the boundaries of our imaginations and delve into areas & ideas that haven't yet been traveled.

This game continues the simming tradition of Independence Fleet's historical USS Avalon. Please see the Sim tab for more information as the Albion is somewhat of an acquired taste.

Otherwise, we would love to have you Join our Adventure!

» 24-Hour Rule

Posted on Wed Feb 24th, 2021 @ 12:37am by Captain Dick Sprague in General News


Just a quick reminder about the "24 hour rule." Instead of talking about it, I'll just quote from our Rule page:

"24 hour rule: Players cannot post twice in a row unless at least 24 hours have passed. This applies separately for Mission Posts and Personal Logs.

What this does NOT mean:

- You can't post twice in less than 24 hours (You can if someone else posts between your two posts)
- You can't post until someone else follows your post with another post (You can if it's been at least 24 hours since your last post)
- You can't post a Personal Log if you just posted a Mission Post (You can because the 24 hour rule for Mission Posts only applies for Mission Posts; Likewise, the 24 hour rule for Personal Logs only applies to Personal Logs)"

If you have any questions, please let me know.

-Capt. Sprague

» The Difference Between Mission Posts & Personal Logs

Posted on Tue Feb 23rd, 2021 @ 9:35pm by Captain Dick Sprague in General News


Pretty simple:

Mission Post: where you advance the story using the characters.
Personal Log: where your character reflects on or simply records what's happening. Think of it like a "Captain's Log" from Star Trek.

All players are expected to read and keep up with the Mission Posts. Players can choose whether or not they read the Personal Logs. As such, please don't put important plot details necessary to the story *exclusively* in Personal Logs. If it affects the story, it needs to be in a Mission Post.

Lieutenant JG Tanya Hughes has resigned from the sim. This type of role playing definitely isn't for everyone! Best wishes moving forward, Lieutenant KG Hughes!

Here character will be written out of the story soon.

» New Crewmember!

Posted on Tue Feb 16th, 2021 @ 10:18pm by Captain Dick Sprague in General News

We already have our first new crewmember:

Lieutenant Commander Spivick, Chief Medical Officer

For story purposes, we'll say that Spivick was on the original crew roster that Sprague read in Post #1.

I love the activity so far!
