USS Columbia

Galaxy-class • NCC-76991

Welcome to the USS Columbia, one of the Fourth Fleet’s finest ships that boldly goes where no one has gone before!

This persistent sandbox is open to every member of Bravo Fleet ranked midshipman and up. If you’re interested in applying, click the Apply Now button. Remember that your character biography should be complete, and you do not need to include a writing sample. Check the guide for more directions (this includes our rules).

The USS Columbia is an ongoing open sandbox for members of Bravo Fleet. Open to everyone holding the rank of midshipman and above, this space is meant to provide people with an opportunity to write character development stories and organic plots without relying on direct game manager intervention like a traditional RPG.

Set on board a Galaxy-class starship, the Columbia provides members with the full writing flavour in an environment similar to Star Trek: Lower Decks. It focuses primarily on the lower decks characters set in the departments of command, engineering, operations, security/tactical, science and medical. 

Unlike SBB and Avalon, this sandbox allows members to collaborate with other members in a set time to complete a sub-storyline/plot within a main mission arc.

USS Columbia: Lost And Found

“She hates me.” Matthys sighed as he sipped on his saurian brandy. He was seated on a sofa chair, his legs folded up on the chair and pulled into his body. His left arm extended in front of his legs, and he carefully cradled his drink. He has been unwinding with his friend Naomi Cross in her [...]
