Welcome to STF!

The best online Bulletin-board style Star Trek Role-Playing site on the internet. Founded in 1991, STF existed originally on the Prodigy "Classic" network, which provided a unique bulletin-board style format. While most RPG groups conduct their actions in live chat, which requires everyone to be online at the same time, or play-by-email, which requires sifting through many messages on your email account, the WeBB provides a central location for our RPG.

Updating your profile's "join date"

We’ve had a number of returning members over the last few months, so I just wanted to post a reminder about the procedure if you want to update the “join date” in your member profile:

1) If you joined prior to January 2008 (that is, you joined while we were on effWeBB), post a note in the PDept with your join date and a link to your first post from the WeBB Archives (https://www.star-fleet.com/archive/).

2) If you joined after we left effWeBB in January 2008, you will most likely have to wait for Archives to be updated to include post-effWeBB content.

If it is very important to update your join date, in some cases the Personnel Department will agree to rely on your welcome email, if you still have it.

Site Downtime Today

The site was down from approximately 3:30 AM EST until 5:50 PM EST today due to a problem at the data center where our server resides.

The site is now back up, but the hosting provider is still performing maintenance to correct the underlying problem. This may cause the site to be slow while they are working. We will post another update when the hosting provider has completed their work.

UPDATE: The hosting provider has indicated that all work to remediate the issue is complete as of 10:09 PM Eastern Standard Time.
