Cadet Orientation


Congratulations on your acceptance to Starfleet Academy!

The resources below will help prepare you for your upcoming Academy training.


Start here for directions: Quick website tour
This tutorial will explain the various parts of our website.

Introduce yourself to the community

We're a friendly and open community of members from across the globe. You are welcome here!

Register for our forums

If you have not already done so, register for our forums — they’re a very important part of our community, and a hub for communication outside of the ship or base you will be assigned to.

Once you’ve submitted your registration, you’ll receive an automated email asking you to verify your email address. Then, one of our staff will approve your account within a few hours. But even before your account is approved, you'll be able to view cadet-friendly areas of the forums and say hello to others.

Introduce yourself

Tell us about yourself! We look forward to learning more about you, and welcoming you to our community. To begin, simply click here, read the first post, and click the black “reply to this topic” button to reply with your own introduction.

Ask a question

Our staff and other members are happy to assist with questions about how our site works and what's next in your journey toward Ensign and placement on a Starfleet ship or base. You can start a new thread and ask any questions you have in our Admissions forum.

Other ways to get help


Prepare your character

Once your training program begins, you'll receive all the instruction you'll need to get started simming with us. But for now, let's dive in and start roleplaying to introduce your character and flex your writing muscles!

Introduce your character

Follow this link to our “Arrival at StarBase 118” thread, and read the instructions. Then, click the black “reply to this topic” button and post your response. Don’t worry about the format — just write however it’s comfortable for you. Be creative!

Learn more about characterization

There's a lot to learn about how you portray an engaging, multifaceted member of Starfleet. But don't worry – we have plenty of easy to follow and fun to read instruction that will get you started. Our Your Character tutorial is the best introduction, with more to come later.

Prepare for training

Check your application acceptance email for your training start date. On that date, you will receive an email – perhaps late in the day where you are – welcoming you to the Academy email list. That email will ask you to reply to the list with your character name and confirmation that you're ready to begin training. Once all the cadets assigned to your class reply, training will start.

The purpose of the training group is to introduce you to how the game works, and explain some concepts that might be new to you. Everything you need to know about getting started with the game will be presented during your training. But if you want to get started with your training now, you can read the series of tutorials – listed below – that we use in training. But don't worry if you can't get to them before training starts – this is totally optional, and you'll receive them via email during the training.
