(A Little More than Mere Suggestions)

All crew who are not a Department Head must complete one (1) quality post every two weeks. A quality post is at least three paragraphs long (eighteen to twenty-one sentences). Failure to post during the two weeks will result in a warning. If a crewmember fails to post after three weeks, a strike will be given. Failure to post after four weeks will result in a second strike and demotion. Failure to post after five weeks will result in a third strike and removal from the ship.

All Department Heads must complete one (1) quality post every week. Failure to post during the one week will result in a warning. If a DH fails to post after two weeks, a strike will be awarded. Failure by a DH to post after three weeks will result in the DH being removed as the DH of their respective department, demotion, and a second strike will be awarded. Failure to post after five weeks will result in a third strike and removal from the ship.

If a crewmember is going to be absent for more then two (2) weeks or a Department Head is going to be absent for more then one (1) week, a Leave of Absence (LOA) must be requested by said crew. An Extended Leave of Absence (ELOA) is for any crew who will be gone for more than four (4) weeks.

Regardless of any previous simming experience, a Commanding Officer may require a Fleet Member to sit and pass the Cadet Academy. Until the Fleet Member has passed the Cadet Academy, they may hold rank no higher than Lieutenant (Junior Grade). If the crewmember drops out of the Academy anytime before finishing their lessons, the Fleet requires that the Commanding Officer remove them from the ship.

It is for your Commanding Officer to determine promotions/demotions and appointments at their discretion. Promotions are based largely on posting quality and quantity and any other help given with the sim. There are limits on what ranks may hold what positions but allowances can usually be made in certain circumstances.

Posting language must, at all times, be proper and polite and respectful of other Fleet Members. Light to mild swearing is permitted, however Fleet Members must exercise good judgment as to what is acceptable. The same applies for descriptions of violence. Overtly sexual material is not acceptable. The Obsidian Fleet Equal Opportunities Policy must be followed by all players. If in doubt, a player should err on the side of caution. If it is felt by the CO, XO, or another player that the posting language crossed the line a warning to stop will be issued by the CO to the offending player. Failure to cease the language will result in immediate removal.


All characters must be original and have a full biography created by their players. They must not copy canon Star Trek characters (Kirk, Spock, Picard etc.). It is for the Commanding Officer (or the Office of Personnel Management in their absence) to determine the final acceptability of any character information. Characters are the property of the players creating them and may not be used without their consent save for moving the plot on in a minor and acceptable manner.

Please keep your posts realistic. There are no such things as nebula-sized quintuple-nacelled Galaxy Classes. If you have 2% structural integrity remaining, you are likely to retreat and repair rather than perform an attack on the Borg home world.

The USS Camelot is a PG15+ SIMM. What does this mean to us? Well, simply this, while we may touch upon sensitive adult topics, we will continue to tell our story in a respctful manner without extreme graphic violence, excessive profanity, or pornographic material.

All strikes remain until six months after they were awarded.
