Star fleet headquarters from Star Trek in Second LifeStar Trek fans have a place to roleplay in Second Life

Here I am standing at SL Starfleet Headquarters [SLURL] in Second Life. What am I doing here? What is the purpose of this place? Well this is a Star Trek Role Playing Area. In their manual it describes themselves as a counterpart to the real life organization STARFLEET: The International Star Trek Fan Association, Inc. Their website has plenty of information for fans and events.

A really good video report on the Starfleet Sim from thinkerer.org

These people have ranks and uniforms and rules to follow in their sims. Seems they welcome outsiders because I never saw or was told to leave. I did find someone else who made some videos and went on a tour. So if you’re interested, you should check out the videos above to learn more about it. I’m not a huge fan of Star Trek so I wasn’t interested in the Role playing but it seems like a great place for fans to meet others. There are plenty of Role playing in Second Life and I think it’s an interesting way of expressing what you really enjoy.
