Where: USS Gateway Bridge, http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Firestorm%20Aerodrome/173/176/3684
What: Star Trek RolePlay. Experience what it is like to be crew on a Starfleet Starship. We have multiple missions each week. If you come when no organized RP is going on, feel free to do an impromptu RolePlay with one of your friends or with another crew member. Note: this is text RP in local chat. (If you prefer, you can just come take a look at the ship and explore.)
Dress Code: This is Star Trek RolePlay. Starfleet Uniforms are encouraged but not required. If you would like a free uniform, we have some nice ones on the Supply Deck (you can take the ship's turbolift to the supply deck).
Note -Uniforms are optional, not required, so please feel free to come even if you don't have a Star Trek Uniform.
Other Info: The ship is huge, having several decks. You can use the Turoblift to move around the ship. There is a holodeck with multiple holodeck programs you can rez. Also the Shuttlebay has a shuttle rezzer, where you can rez a shuttle and then fly around the exterior of the starship.
The USS Gateway is looking for regular crew, with openings in the following departments: Engineering, Medical, Operations, Science, Security/Tactical. These are RP positions and filling one will not automatically put you on the Firestorm Team. You will develop a character and come faithfully to one (or more) of the weekly mission times.
If you are interested, please contact Teresa Firelight or StarWolff (StarWolff2000)
The Firestorm Gateway has an area dedicated to Star Trek RolePlay. It is a Sovereign Class Starship, coming from the era The Next Generation (TNG) and/or Voyager. This is a complete ship, with a full hull and a shuttlebay that opens to space. Physically it is positioned a little above the Space Station Tempus.
We use a turbolift to move around the ship. It is a Trek Version of an elevator. It is actually pretty easy to use:
Firestorm Gateway's goal is to introduce new-to-SL residents to RolePlay with seasoned RolePlayers. We want them to experience SciFi RolePlay and see if it is something they are interested in. Firestorm Gateway's motivation is to help these new residents find something that they love, that will make them want to keep coming back to SL. To that end, the Firestorm Gateway RolePlay area is different than almost any other in SL.
We actually encourage existing Star Trek RolePlay groups to befriend and recruit the new residents. There is one Caveat to this: experienced RPers need to somewhat regularly RP here and must form some type of relationship with new-to-SL residents before inviting them to their groups. In other words, experienced RolePlayers can form friendships with new-to-SL folks, then invite interested parties to visit their RolePlay area, join their RolePlay group, etc. This accomplishes two things for us… 1) it connects new residents into communities so they will want to keep coming back to SL, and 2) it helps existing RolePlay groups to grow and prosper. (Of course, we expect everyone to be new-resident friendly, e.g., tolerant of new-resident mistakes and lack of SL expertise.)
The USS Gateway is also intended to be a RolePlay home for existing Star Trek RolePlayers who dont have a RolePlay home and would like a nice place to drop-in and RolePlay. We are also looking for “regulars” who would like to join our crew.
