Introduction

Greetings and Welcome!
This manual is for the crew and prospective crew of the USS Cochrane NCC – 59318-A, A Virtual Chapter of United Federation Starfleet based within Second Life.
United Federation Starfleet or UFS for short is a Not For Profit Star Trek Fan Group. We are a group of Trek Fans that have come together to enjoy our fandom.
The Cochrane is a Champion Class Battleship, however while certainly capable of it, it is not specifically designed for a tactical role in the fleet, rather it is a vessel of exploration in a Quadrant full of unknowns. Join us as we explore strange new worlds, seek out new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before!

Chapter Rules

  • ALL members are expected to behave themselves on sim. This roughly means that you should not leave the confines of the specified area, and should not antagonize or in anyway harass anyone within the sim.
  • Senior Staff are held to a higher standard than the rest of the Crew, and should make an active effort to come to meetings, and Roleplays, as well as recruiting, and educating the members of your Department when needed. Any failure to make an effort to be active or not informing the CO/XO if you are going to be unable to perform your duties, causing Drama within UFS or the ship itself, or violation of any UFS or Second Life rules, will result in your demotion to a Junior Officer.
  • There is a Zero Tolerance policy for on board drama, which effects the status, personnel, or activity of the ship. ALL crew members are expected to behave themselves, and be a shining example of what a Starfleet Officer is.
  • Above all else, ENJOY YOURSELF! Make use of the ship, it's facilities, and resources, and have an enjoyable time.
