PBEM, or Played-By-E-Mail, is a roleplaying game taking place on the internet, mostly set in a Star Trek universe. You check the Web for ships in need of crew (almost all could use some help), and then you create a character and aply for a certain position.
On a ship, the GM (Game Master) (mostly the captain) creates a storyline, known as the plot, and all the characters respond on it. Like in the real Star Trek, you also have ranks, a chain of command and things like that.
These are the characters I have running loose in cyberspace, together with a link to their ship, or other place. But if you want to see more ships, check out the links in the transporter room
I hope you enjoy the roleplaying.
