Red Alert

We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time. -T.S. Eliot

What is STC?

STC (Star Trek: Chirikov) is a long-running collaborative creative writing project (often called a "sim" or simulation) based in the Star Trek universe. The 24th century of the Okudaverse, to be precise (2385-2392). STC regards the current series of novels, both graphic and print, as accepted fanon, and incorporates the events of the Star Trek Online timeline where possible. Stories typically take three months to complete, and incorporate a main (A) plot with a structured beginning and ending, and any number of concurrently running free-form character development (B) and (C) subplots. Writers work together to craft all aspects of the story and quality of posting is emphasized over quantity.

I am Captain Devys Argent, Commanding Officer. The Chirikov is accepting new crew members. If you like a more structured simming environment with a more mature crowd, STC is for you. Novices/beginners are very welcome as STC can provide an excellent learning platform. Take a look around the website and if you like what you see, why not join us? We would love to welcome you aboard! Apply now!

I pledge to lead by positive example.

I pledge to answer all questions put to me as CO in a patient and congenial manner. I recognize that such is part and parcel of my job as CO, and will strive to provide all needed information.

I pledge that I will endeavor to make this SIM a friendly and welcoming place, as free of IRL drama as is humanly possible.

I pledge to adhere to canon/accepted fanon.

I pledge to take the SIM in a logical, and enjoyable, direction.

I pledge to make the development of new missions open source content. Any player who has an idea is free to bring it to my attention, where we can work on it together.

I pledge to craft mission with all players and characters in mind. There are no real "stars" on board. Focusing on just a few players limits my storytelling options, and I don't wish to limit myself in any way.

I pledge to formally recognize the efforts of all participating players.
