Welcome to the Task Group Legacy simms!

Welcome to Task Group Legacy, home of the USS August NCC 93389-E, a Rhode Island refit vessel, and Outpost 42, a Starfleet outpost in the northern reaches of unexplored space, with an attached civilian colony.

The August is tasked with exploring new civilizations and finding resources for the great war that plagues the galaxy in the year 2409 and beyond.



The Outpost and Colony are tasked with gathering resources from the planet for Starfleet and the war effort, being a base of operations for the August and possible other future vessels, and supporting a civilian colony in the far reaches of known space.



Do you have what it takes to be out on the fringe of the known galaxy? Are you an officer that can help turn the tide of the war? Do you enjoy writing and roleplay?

If so, join us, and enter an exciting world of Star Trek, roleplay, and storytelling in the United Federation of Planets' simm game!

Hello everyone,

As you might've just noticed, we have officially kick-started our new mission http://ufplanets.com/ufp/simm/august.php/sim/missions/id/8 with our first Joint Post, simply titled "Gamma".

It centres around an unexpected yet deadly radiation leak on-board the August, and the following posts will chronicle the crew's attempts to repair and survive on the frontier of space with a hardly self-sustaining colony for support. Joint Posts will be created for you all to participate, but if you feel you want to contribute more or are being left out, I encourage you to get in touch with myself or Torinth.

In OOC news, I am awarding Jon Thomas (AKA Samuel Quinn) the OOC MVP for his excellent activity during our last 'breather' mission "New Beginnings", and in recognition of his continuing contributions to this one. These awards can also be nominated to your fellow players if you so choose, but obviously you have to deserve them first!

In the meantime, feel free to write a Personal Log detailing what your character is doing during, before or after "Gamma", and if you're new to our crew, there's no better time.

Let's go already!

–McClintock

Hey guys,

I have posted a new thread in Holodeck Two, our home on the UFP forums and I invite you all to place your votes and choose what our characters should wear. As your facilitator the choice between either our forum-standard First Contact or STO-standard Odyssey uniform is in your hands - but I know what I'm voting for!

In addition, it serves double-duty as a roll call for all players to reply in the thread with their character(s), so you all have double the reason to click below to get into the the next upcoming mission.

» June/July Short Story Competition

Posted on 13 Jun 2014 @ 1:28am by Commodore Berel Joon in Out of Character

Alright you creative machines, it's time once again to write something up for the next short story competition. This time it will be themed yet again, in honor of the next major Trek holiday - the Risian Lohlunat festival!

https://ufplanets.com/content.php?355-July-Short-Story-Competition-Announced

I encourage all of you interested in writing up a short bit to do so. It can even be just a few paragraphs. But there is much fun to be had here. And you get to be famous in our news outlet as the winner is announced on July 12th!

Good luck, and hope to see some awesome stuff from this group!

Hello everyone,

As some of you already know, Caymen Greener has decided to step aside after so many years as our roleplay Administrator, and I have put myself forward to replace him.

I can assure you here now nothing will change In Character. After so many changes to adapt to like a Borg drone, I believe it's time for a little stability and continuity. As such I'll be creating a new mission entitled "New Beginnings", designed simply to do just the above as we adapt - both in character and otherwise - to our new surroundings either planetside or shipboard. While unstructured and little will occur, it allows lots of freedom for character development, new or old.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome some of our newest members, and encourage you read up on our many past missions together at http://ufplanets.com/novasimm/index.php/main/index. I encourage you to introduce your new characters to us with a quick Personal Log, whether it be set in your present-day duties wherever you are on Task Force Legacy or a piece of your backstory before you joined us. I'm a firm believer that our only limit is our imagination, and if you feel your character is being left out, I also urge you to use your initiative, or Private Message one of us to get you in on the continuing story we'll be creating together.

It's never the end. It's always just beginning.

-McClintock
