Be respectful to others, do not cross the IC/OOC line, and no godmodding. If you have an issue that cannot be politely or amicably resolved, let the mods know. You must keep your f-list up to date, and be open to reaching out and interacting with other writers. Participation and collaboration is vital to keeping our story going. Subplots and character development are encouraged, but any major plots that may have a greater impact on other characters or the universe should be run by the mods first. Please contact us via the DROPBOX with any ideas.


  • IC contact post
  • OOC contact post (comments screened; this must be public)
  • Info blurb. Any format, as long as it includes: name, age, occupation, and some history - this does not have to be a full bio, but we want to get an idea of your character!
  • Examples (requirements listed HERE)
Journals can be ic or ooc, as long as they're relevant, and must not include underscores, numbers, extra characters, etc. Played-bys should fall within the 5+/- year rule of being in the same range as the character, and must be over 18. We do not allow whitewashing.

You must let the mods know if you make any significant changes to your character bios after you've been accepted, and you cannot add any extra abilities without clearing it with us first.

Our character limit is 4 per player. You must be active (commenting/posting on the FP, writing scenes, etc) with your first or current characters before adding more. Avoid overlap in roles (ex: one character per ship, or occupation) and abilities/species (i.e. only one neurogenic, one of the same alien race, etc. per writer).


After acceptance, you must post an intro (social media post, narrative, scene, or tag) within 3 days or be removed. You are required to update once a month; you must be able to show you've written a scene, narrative, or been active on the FP and submit a link of proof to our MONTHLY ACTIVITY tracker. Because our requirements are low, we also conduct a MID-MONTH CHECK-IN every 2nd or 3rd week of the month.

REMOVALS are conducted twice a month (middle and end). Since we are a plot heavy comm, please note things tend to move fast, especially if you join a ship. Involvement in plot is voluntary, but if you volunteer, you must be available to actively participate in moving things along. Real life always comes first, so let the mods know if you need a HIATUS for a period over 2 weeks.


JOURNALS will be used as a form of social media on a galaxy-wide communication network. Narratives, updates, and random entries should be posted in your journal. Customs function as commlink posts, and can be encrypted (filtered) to other users. Needless to say, media & pop culture will be different 500+ years in the future, so feel free to get creative! We have several social media templates available to members.

THREADS/SCENES should be posted in our main comm, ~SPACEPORTS, where mods will post plot announcements and group threads. Though it's not required, we strongly encourage posting open scenes to foster an interactive environment. We are a writing-heavy comm; if you are only interested in ooc plotting or feel uncomfortable interacting outside of customs, this may not be the comm for you! Anything extremely graphic or NSFW must be placed under a cut with appropriate trigger warnings, and graphic adult scenes should be kept to private customs.

EVENTS/PLOTS will be introduced by the mods on a regular basis. These include station-wide events that will affect everyone (massive electrical failures, viral outbreaks, pirate raids, etc.), as well as ship specific missions. Mini-events and prompts may also be announced via our in game newsfeed feature. Participation in non-plot activities is voluntary and optional, but the game-wide events cannot be ignored. Most ships have an event once or twice a month, and involve participation in group threads.

CREATING YOUR OWN SHIP requires you to be be responsible for generating your own activities and events for your crew - the mods will approve ideas and help organize, but they will not do all the work. The dropbox is always open for submissions, so events can be added or adjusted to work with your ideas and goals!
