Application to Join the USS Nogura
Expectations of all aboard the Nogura are very high. By submitting this form to join the crew you affirm that you will write in a proper and adequate manner and follow all rules and guidance given. Applicants are reminded that the Nogura is rated 16+ due to the possibility of violent content from time to time. Applicants have four choices to consider when creating a character for the Nogura: 1. Apply for a senior role with the understanding that the character has already been serving on the Nogura during its construction and, thus, already knows the CO and other characters established as being present at the onset of writing. There is no need for a traditional 'coming aboard' type post. 2. Apply for a senior role with the understanding that the character is new to the Nogura and will join the ship at Starbase 565. A traditional 'coming aboard' type post is required upon the characters arrival. 3. Create a new, junior character that has always been aboard the Nogura and jump straight in as if the character was always there but with less responsibility than senior officers. No traditional 'coming aboard' type post is required. 4.Create a new, junior character that is an entirely new crewmember and will join the ship at Starbase 565. Therefore, a traditional 'coming aboard' type post is required. Applicants should discuss their choice with the CO before submitting an application. To avoid any disappointment, such as with ranks given or positions awarded, or the potential for rejection, players are urged to heed this warning. No application will be approved until such a discussion has been concluded. We have a strict rank guide that we will be following for the acceptance of characters on the sim. You can contact the CO at kai@uss-nogura.com or via the Discord server at https://discord.gg/dhfZduH
This sim is rated 16+. No applicant below the age of 16 will be accepted.
No more than 250 words summing up your character and how they got to be on the Nogura. This will be used on the manifest so it is important.
A detailed description of your characters physical appearance. Please be as detailed as you feel necessary. There are a selection of available avatars on the website that can help with character creation. You can access these at https://uss-nogura.com/wordpress/available-character-images/
A detailed description of your characters personality traits, including strengths and weaknesses, ambitions, hobbies and the like. Please be as detailed as you feel necessary, but remember this information helps to determine rank and acceptance.
A short, in character review of your character's performance on their previous posting written from the perspective of their previous commanding officer. This can be completed after application but will be required within one month of joining. Check out the CO's bio for an example.

Be as detailed as you like when writing this section, but remember that it will help the Command Authority to decide if the character will fit with the rest of the crew. This should include the characters life before joining the Nogura and, if necessary, before joining Starfleet.
In this section, you are required to provide a sample of your posting ability to show the Command Authority that you will be capable of posting to the standard expected on the Nogura. You can choose any scenario for your sample post, using any character from any simulation you like, however, it is recommended (for ease) that you should think about writing your first post for the Nogura. This will enable you to hit the ground running upon acceptance to the crew.
