I. Simm Policies

1. Membership Standards

  1. Our story is a part of the Bravo Fleet story. All writers, whether permanent or visiting, are expected to have a good working knowledge of the Star Trek TV/movie and Bravo Fleet universes, as well as an up-to-date knowledge of the Task Force 72 storyline as per the Bravo Fleet Infobase and discussions in the Task Force 72 forum on Relay Station Bravo.
  2. Our story is based around the concept of an ensemble cast, where different episodes may focus on different aspects of the Carnwennan Station. Players are encouraged to create multiple characters in different departments on the ship and in the Activity so that they may participate in all storylines.
  3. This simm does not herald itself as an entry-level simm. Except where expressly waived by the Commanding Officer, all applicants are expected to have a demonstrable history in Bravo Fleet or an equivalent writing organization.

2. Collaboration Standards

  1. Players are expected to be proactive in posting both individually and as a collaborator in joint posts. Players are expected to reply to join posts within three days, must post at least once per week for all characters involved with the current plot line, and must post at least once for at least one character every two weeks.
  2. Players are expected to be active in the CS Discord server.
  3. When a mission has an impact on Task Force canon, the writers are expected, in collaboration with the Commanding Officer, to develop the necessary content to propose and implement the developments into the Task Force canon.

3. Character Standards

  1. All characters owned by a player (“Player Characters”) must be listed on both the simm manifest and as assigned to the Carnwennan Station on the Bravo Fleet Management System.
  2. All Player Characters present in a post must be listed as a character in the post, and the authors of all Player Characters listed on the post must agree that the post has been completed before it is posted. In the event that you use a character that is not part of the larger story, you are encouraged to list then as a “Non-Story Character”.
  3. All players are expected to maintain a complete and comprehensive biography for each Player Character for which they write. This biography should provide details sufficient to understand the character’s upbringing, training and career, and these details are expected to align with the character’s personality, position and conduct on the Carnwennan Station.

4. Content Standards

  1. All content and posts should be the original work of their author(s), except where cited at the end of the post. All content and posts must comply with the site’s Intellectual Property Policy.
  2. All content and posts should be written in proper English with minimal grammatical and spelling errors. The Commanding Officer reserves the right to correct errors in content and to take further action if deemed necessary.
  3. While the context of the sim is a mature one, all subject matter on the simm must conform with Bravo Fleet’s By-law 2.7: Simulation Rating Guidelines for 16+ (Mature Audiences). Posts may contain occasional offensive language, describe violent acts and make reference to sexual acts, but explicit sexual descriptions and graphic descriptions of extreme violence are not permitted.
  4. All character traits, history and actions must fit within the context of their respective organizations in the Star Trek universe, as established by the Star Trek TV/movie and Bravo Fleet canon. No player shall post in a way counter to this canon, except where expressly approved by the Commanding Officer.
