NEW YORK–CBS announced yesterday a new host certification program for all Star Trek Internet role plays, sims, and fan fiction websites. The course is expected to go live sometime this summer and to be required for all hosts leading Star Trek games in 2020 and beyond.
USS MAGNANIMOUS–Captain Brian Bumsworth yesterday indefinitely banned the expression of all opposing political views from his game, the USS Manganimous, effective immediately. This comes after months of Bumsworth arguing with others about politics on the Magnanimous message board, his Facebook page, and at the local Star Trek fan club.
Three years ago, the simming and online role playing community melted down over Starbase 400,000’s new paint job. Now, leaders, hosts, and players alike are arguing over this audio file of unknown and mysterious origins. Is it “Mike Bremer” or “Chas Hammer”?
The USS Magnanimous broke the all-time play-by-post record for most posts in a week last week with 2,942 posts. The highly prolific game officially recorded the now-record post at 11:59 pm last night after what had been a week chock-full of non-stop action. No one is really sure what the previous record was.
