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.
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.
