Hello everyone. I'm new here. I tried to join UFS about a month ago, but then got distracted by real life. I'm a Second Life resident. I just completed the intro and orientation class and look forward to exploring the various branches and opportunities within this amazing group. In real life, I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my fiance and two daughters - 8 and 15 who visit me often when not with their mother. I was divorced last March of 2021, but am happy now to be restarting my life with a much better and happier situation.

I love Star Trek - always have. Never watched much of the old series, but I've seen every episode of every other series since TOS except well Prodigy, still need to get into that and also need to finish up Lower Decks. My favorite was probably TNG but I love them all. The sense of adventure, exploration, openness, all of that is just a big thrill to me. Star Trek gives me a deep emotional surge and makes me think. Anyways I'm droning on. Wishing you all well and looking forward to determine my race and branch and all the other details to flesh out my in game personality.

For now I'm happy to be a member of the federation.

Greetings Matthew,

Welcome aboard! I'm happy you've joined us. This is the perfect place for someone that loves Star Trek! If you click the poster on the right side of your screen showing THIS MONTH'S EVENTS, it will take you to the September Event Schedule on the Forum. It has a list of social events you may attend if you wish.

Also, if you scroll down and look on the right side of your screen you will see the UF Starfleet Schedule Calendar. It has a list of all UFS activities including the dates and times of the starships' Mission Roleplays.

If you haven't done so already scroll up to the top of your screen and click on UFS Discord. You can join the UFS Discord group to get information and chat with other UFS members. I'm looking forward to meeting you in-world. Welcome to UFS!

I have a question to whomever might know the answer. I would like to join some of the RP things as an observer or maybe the awards ceremony this weekend, but I don't have a uniform yet. I'm almost finished up the intro to the various branches program (need to take final exam) and I already did the new member class and test. I haven't been assigned to a ship yet as I need to complete MIDSHIP first. Is there any way I can get a basic uniform to be able to attend in person events in SL? I know I still need to finalize my race and character and profile and all that.

Hello Matthew,

I'm afraid we do not have a basic non-branch uniform available. When you have made your branch choice, please let me or your mentor know, and we can arrange the necessary group invites for you. You'll then have access to the relevant vendor in the Quartermasters area at HQ and be able to collect your duty uniform along with other essential items. (Your assigned mentor will be able to go through all the bits and bobs you'll need).

Please don't feel that because you do not have a uniform yet, that it means you cannot attend the awards ceremony. That is open to ALL members, and it would be a shame if you felt unable to attend and meet more of the wider UFS community.

Ship assignment does not need to wait until you have finished the Midship. If you have found one that you think will be a good fit for you, then I recommend reaching out to the CO/XO. If you need help with that, again either myself or your mentor will be happy to assist. Same with observing OOC. ,

Hope this helps,

Captain Rowena Luna Vandread-Rose
UFSA Commandant

Thanks Rowena for the great info. I'm trying to find out how to contact the XO or CO for tonight's roleplay on the USS Veracruz. Just want to observe OOC. I see their names but I'm at work so I can't get on SL to try to message them. What's the best way to contact people based on their names in the forum or on events?
