I looked and I didn't see where this thread had been started. We seem to be getting started very well and I thought it was time to get to know the person behind the writings. I will start

I am Aaron I am 33 from NW Indiana I am a correctional officer. I am a grownup kid I love video games, comic books, and playing sports. I am pretty heavy in politics and family.

I am Josh. I am 32 from Virginia. I was a weapons specialist in the Navy for 7 years. I drove trucks for 3 years after I got out of the military until the layoffs happened. I work as a manager of a well known fast food chain right now and I am expected to graduate this year with my asssociates in History. Like Aaron I love video games and comics. I enjoy both Star Wars and Star Trek. I play the trombone for going on 20 years now I supplement my income by playing in bands, any kind of band. You name it I have probably played in it. Right now I play in a rock/soul/motown band..think Blues Brothers

I'm Tiffany. I'm eighteen. My dad was awesome enough to get me a job that would fit the skills he taught me growing up that many people might find controversial. I'm a licensed pilot, working on my commercial while gaining training for a private company to fly while cross training with security so that I can have multiple hats within the same corporation once I turn 21. I'm working toward my 5,000 hour rotor-craft hours, my High-Powered, and Commercial license so that I can swap jobs down the line if I ever needed to. At the same time, I'm studying to get all practical security licenses (most of which I cannot obtain for another 2.5 years) and I am the running champion for our airsoft team, several competitions in a row. I specialize in Urban/CQB Airsoft Combat. In other words, I like to wreak havoc indoors with small-arms replica's against and with people who have seen combat and I'm most comfortable in four-man teams.

Personal life:
I hate the cold. I also hate the cold. But most importantly, I hate the cold. I've been up north a few times; after being born and raised in Florida, I've come to realize that I hate cold weather. Not to mention, I hate cold weather.

I love writing stories, learning new things, and being with the people I love. I hate conflict and always attempt to make things right when people are angry, but unfortunately, I lack empathy according to the psychiatrist so I sometimes have no idea that I'm involved in an argument until someone starts dropping the F-Bomb and going crazy. That is my major downside and I try and read books to better understand micro-expressions and body language so that I can better get along with people that are having a bad day and simply "looking for a reason".

I love making new friends and I'm open about many things. I enjoy the beach, sports (especially American Football but playing it, not watching it) and often get myself all bruised up to the point where people think I'm abused. I play hard and rough and most my friends are guys. I hate makeup, despise perfume, and I can catch a football with relative ease and outrun most my friends hehe... Especially people who are too afraid to tackle me because of my gender but they get the idea when they get the ball so it's okay because I don't hesitate to put someone to the ground because they have that ball and this is usually where the bruises come from lol.

I take a few college courses online but my current workload keeps me fairly busy because it's mostly certifications I'm after at the moment. However, I love classrooms and enjoy learning so I will eventually get my college degree as well (on what, I have no idea, but I love to learn nonetheless).

That's me!

Well I'm Brad. I turn 30 next week on the 25th, and I am married with two kids.

I have been in the Army for almost ten years, for seven of them I was an infantry medic, and the last three I have been an otrhopedics tech.


It seems that we all have some of the same hobbies as well. I enjoy video games, reading,singing, medieval history, and photoshop. But I also do a few outdoorsy activities. I am an SCA member and compete in heavy armored combat and sword fighting.



I am also stationed in Germany at the moment and will be here until early 2015.

Time to break the illusion if there ever was one...

I'm Ethan, 21 years of age and I think that wins me the award of youngest writer for the crew. Sad to say I've not got a scrap of military background behind me but I'm looking to join the Royal Navy as a medical tech.

Born in Scotland so that gives me my sunny disposition.

Hobbies include airsoft, gaming, writing and generally arsing around.

My name is Allison and I will be playing Allison, I know real original but meh. I'm 25 and was in the army as a nurse for four years. They didn't pay for my school, thank god, as I was able to get out after the minimum amount of my obligation.

As you may know I worked with Oliver/Brad once upon a time and we dated. This is the only pic that I can find from when he had surgery so he's gained a little weight here, hehe. Sorry dude, but I HAVE to put this up.

We have an 18 year old, you're the second youngest...perhaps the youngest male though. Razz

Anyway, about me, I guess, though I was avoiding this thread because I have a tendency to just blabber, blabber, blabber--Ethan knows this. I am Kyla, I am 25, and I am a nanny while I work towards my nursing certification. I am on my way to becoming an RN, so I'll be treating everything from hypochondriacs to objects sticking out of people's heads. It's really exciting and I love my psychology classes more than I probably should, but hey, they're interesting. If I didn't like the idea of treating open wounds so much, I would be a psychologist, but no thank you, I like blood.

As for my Nanny job, I mostly nanny Jameson, who turns 3 next month and I love that little kid so much. His parents call me his favorite person and as I've been spending even more time with him than normal, I'm starting to agree not because I'm vain, but because he's starting to run to me like I'm going to make it better when he gets in trouble with his parents when I'm still there. Then there is Havana, his older sister, who is 9 in May and she's a girl scout. To her I'm still more the babysitter, but after two years with them I have become that person that when she has to use her angry voice, gets children in line. Also, yes, they were named after a whiskey (Jameson) and a corona (Havana).

On top of all of that, which is most of my life right now because I work like 12 hours a day most of my week, I write in my free time. I have a book published and I'm about to get a literary agent, as well as more books published. I spend as much time as I can on writing, and I enjoy it more than any sane, normal person, but I'm not sane nor normal, so I guess that's how that goes. My entire family is kind of eccentric, but I have a younger sister who is two years younger than me and we are joined at the hip--she is my actual best friend and I love that.

I love video games and comic books, but that seems to be a theme with us all, haha, and because I've been reading and collecting comics since I was tiny I get judgmental about the movies that come out based on them. To a certain degree you gotta just let it go, but I dunno...it's the tiny things that irk me about them. Regardless, I am a nerd and I am proud of it, along with comic books and video games, I love to RP, I love Star Trek more than Star Wars but I still love Star Wars, and I am addicted to TOR--MMOs are fun.

I am pretty friendly, rather eccentric and highly emotional, so I make friends really easily, but I get far too attached to them too fast and then if it ends I get really upset about it. Because of that, I tend to try to stay away from online relationships of the sort unless it's just a friendship as there's just too much pessimism there and too much doubting loyalties. Still, once you make it into my circle of friends, oh well, you're there and I'll mother bear you like the best of them, because that is seriously just how I am.

This is far too long already, but I will say two last tidbits about myself: I have a tattoo and I am going to Comic Con again this year and it's going to be a doosey. I've met famous people before and even been auditioned to help write a show, but this is just...a big crowd. Patrick Stewart, Walter Koenig, Adam West, Burt Ward, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, JENNIFER HALE, Gillian Anderson, etc. I am surrounded by some of the people I've looked up to since I was little and it's going to be amazing. Now to just perfect my Catwoman costume and buy black contacts for my Betazoid Starfleet Doctor costume...my fem!Captain America costume is already done...

Yes, Meeko the raccoon from Pocahontas...because he's my spirit animal. That pic was taken in the Disney Store in the mall, I admit it.

Achtung, schpiel!

My name's Rob, and at 19 I'm officially among the younger crowd of this here lovely sim. I'm currently still in junior college with plans to finish up this year and have an AS in Computer Science before moving on to get my BS at a four-year, then finally enter the Air Force to work as a technician and hopefully be able to go straight to officer training (as it requires a Bachelor's degree these days).

I've been roleplaying online since I was 13, which is how I happened to be inclined to join the Indefatigable; for about two years or so I ran the USS Renaissance right here in Bravo Fleet, a sim our captain used to be on with a slightly-deranked version of Reneé who enjoyed the fruits of being the CO's girlfriend. Razz It was a lot of fun for all involved, and I couldn't resist joining back up with an old buddy when I got back into Trek simming.

And since pics or I don't exist it seems:

Well, Rob, welcome. I'm not sure but it looks like a breath of fresh air is what we need at the moment.

Greetings all, intro time.

My name is Jared and at 36, I appear to be the old man of group. I have a BA in Classics and Linguistics, which is almost as bad as having a BA in Philosophy when it comes to finding a job.

I have no military background. My grandfather was a WWII vet and my uncle was a territorial. I was a Scout, but that doesn't count does it?

I'm currently unemployed, but I do teach literacy to adults as a volunteer once a week.

I started simming in 2009 and have only simmed in the Star Trek universe as of yet. I simmed with Renee' and Miko on the USS Renaissance and with Miko on a ship called the USS Raziel and a site called Starfleet Expedition.

Jason was my first ever character, though I've reinvented him a few times.

I'm a big Star Trek fan, but when it comes to sci fi, Doctor Who is my first love and I have a very large collection of Doctor Who Books as well as videos and DVDs.

I love writing and researching stuff. Words fascinate me, yet I'm a terrible speller.

Hobbies wise, I love cooking and baking, listening to music, writing and researching stuff. I'm a bit a history buff too.

Though my highest academic qualifications are in the arts, I consider myself a scientist at heart.

My anthropology once called me a Renaissance man.

Sorry, about the quality of my pick it was taken on my laptop 'camera' through Skype.
