We urge everyone who applies to bear in mind that Starbases are much more difficult to Command than starships.


How so? It might be helpful for those trying to bear it in mind to explain why it is much more difficult. I’m guessing it’s not obvious to others if it isn’t obvious to me.


The biggest difference is that a starbase is stationary, compared to a ship. This causes different types of simms to happen, and different interactions, because the action comes to you, instead of you going to the action. Just like how the storylines in DS9 are different then in TNG, Voyager, etc.

Also the balance of the civilian population, compared to just the regular Starfleet crew. To make a very vibrant starbase simm, you need these other perspectives. So it’s not quite as rigid as a ship.

I hope this helps anyone who is potentially interested in being the CO of Magellan. If anyone is interested, and would like some more information, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I’m happy to talk about my experience from being the CO of a starbase.
