Welcome to Memory Theta!

The Greek letter Theta was used as an ancient symbol for death or danger. As the repository for technologies, artifacts, and knowledge deemed too dangerous for public awareness or even storage elsewhere, Memory Theta embodies the ancient legacy inherent to its name. Due to its highly classified contents and location, the facility and its staff have been given a quasi-mythical status among even the highest echelons of Starfleet.

Previous administrators have resigned from the post due to workplace stress and psychological strain. Retrieval missions are not for the faint of heart, having garnered an unofficial reputation of terror in the Starfleet grapevine. Whenever a Theta team shows up, it often means some type of horror is on the horizon.

Pay no mind to the domesticated Borg drone butlers.

As most of you know, Memory Theta has been a contestant in the Ongoing Worlds Annual Tournament of Sims for the past few years. Sims from any fleet or club, any genre or format, are permitted to enter the contest. This year the ToS had 64 entrants. I am delighted to share that not only were we awarded for the third year in a row, but Memory Theta received the highest raw score of 73 points out of 90 possible (3 judges scoring 3 categories on a scale from 1 to 10) and a score of 4.19 adjusted (with 1 appearing to be the baseline -- the lowest was -5). I'll share some more details and feedback in the Discord, but I wanted to hand this award off to all of you because you were the ones who made it happen. The wider sim community recognizes you as the best of the best. It is my honor to sim with all of you.

Check out the blog entry below for more details about the contest and a full listing of all winners.

Whew! The mission that was prolonged by Covid has finally been wrapped up! Half a dozen posts went out today that had been waiting in the wings for that conclusion. Feel free to finish up anything outstanding through the end of the month, after which S1E4 will be closed and any other posts in-progress can be transferred to Mission 0. We already have some folks working on S1E5, so let's all plan on jumping into that one come March.

Thank you to you all. The saying "we're in this together" has become a cliche by now, but we did so in very real terms with this hobby of ours. 2020 was much more bearable knowing we had such wild stories to share with each other. I'm looking forward to 2021 being a return to better times, and I'm glad to share it with you all.

Cin cin!


» November Post of the Month

Posted on Mon Feb 1st, 2021 @ 9:13pm by Captain Mrazak in Sim Announcement

Memory Theta the Bronze level Post of the Month for last November. Due to the hectic holiday season not letting up in the new year, they didn't announce it until this weekend. Congratulations to everyone are in order because (almost) the entire sim contributed to that post. GG!


» Happy New Year!

Congratulations, Thetans, for surviving 2020! I might be a few days premature in saying so, but seeing as how I beat Covid at the first of this month, color me confident. As per usual, posting expectations have been lax for the holidays, and that's on top of relaxed activity due to Covid. But as we've been discussing multiple future missions in the works, if at all possible, we need to work toward wrapping up the mission's climax so that our adventures can continue.

January is shaping up to be a crazy month for me personally, so there won't be any immediate change in expectations with the new year. I just want to see a slow and steady ramp up where possible. If there are any concerns drawn from that, don't hesitate to reach out. Reasonable accommodations will continue to be made.

I want to thank everyone who contributed during the turbulent Year of the Plague despite every reason to not do so. It is thanks to you that Memory Theta continues to shine as a unique and successful sim in a sea of clichés. You're all in my Hall of Fame.

Stay safe, not scared, and have a happy new year!

Cheers

» Happy Belated Birthday!

Memory Theta's birthday came and went without any fanfare. For shame!

At any rate, we've officially started our new mission with some decent momentum, and I look forward to seeing what happens. Nothing will be as it seems, but then again our little monster is in its terrible two's now. Maybe that's to be expected?

I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone of the Memory Theta Archives. It's been awhile since we've had a new addition. Few of the entries in the Theta Level Threats are mission related, so if anybody wants to write a one-off threat concept, the template can be found here.

Thanks for writing an awesome mission. I look forward to another great one.

Cheers.

After a quick hop to the Bajoran system where the Phantom dropped out of warp long enough to beam Akiva and the others aboard Deep Space 9, the modified Defiant-class ship burned the Quantum Slipstream Drive directly to the Theta-Corvus system. Even so, the trip was the better part of…

It should be noted that while this was yet another successful mission under my direct supervision and leadership, the Theta report was a self-generated one.
