The USS Galaxy fan fiction email simulation
RPG was originally created in 1996 by Mark Stephen Williams. At that
time, it was a founding member of the Email Division in the Federation
Sim Group and remained a top-rated sim throughout its time spent there
until divisive issues within the organisation forced it to band with
19 other PBEM's and split to form Allied Electronic Simulations on August
Throughout its tenure with
AES, it maintained a standard that all other Trek-based sims
aspired to. Consistent writing, fairly low turnover, high
application rate. Yet, the politics of the environment again
raised its ugly head. It took its toll on the GM of the USS
Galaxy, and coupled with his desire to move on with his personal
life, the USS Galaxy was retired as a sim in July 2002 after
almost 7 years. Magic number of Trek series, so it was the
Within a week of the original
Galaxy closing its doors, this new fan fiction RPG opened
to the public as the USS Galaxy-A with the blessing of the
original GM under the NHS banner when Novahorizons was founded on August
1, 2002. Many of the original writers followed this new sim,
some went to the USS Miranda - a fellow NHS RPG - and even
a random few scattered to other sims with Nova Horizons.
For the next five years, the USS Galaxy RPG continued to grow and develop under the watchful (and incredibly dedicated) eye of its new GM, Ian Dickson. However, in July 2007, Ian also left the sim due to a desire to focus on real life. For a week or two the sim's future was uncertain, but thanks to an incredible level of dedication (or insanity) on the part of all the game's writers, the sim just refused to die.
We've had our ups and downs,
and are still experiencing growing pains, but the desire
and strive to showcase the talent that comes through our
RPG doors keeps us going. You won't find the usual here.
We are a tough sim to crack into, but if you do, you know
you are the best, or we see potential within you. Not to stroke
ego here, but we've been going for over 10 years now for a reason.
If any simmer past or present
has a story to tell, it'll be posted here. If you are, or
were, a member of the original Galaxy or even this TNG version,
you are more than welcome to leave your impression here.
Just contact us and we'll get it posted.
