Seeking Hope | Star Trek: Theurgy

By Auctor-Lucan
Story Excerpt: After the Battle of Starbase 84. the USS Theurgy escaped into the Azure Nebula. The SS Sabine is launched on an away mission, escorted by Valkyrie fighters. They are bound for an abandoned outpost in the nebula, intel mentioning a dilithium deposit.

SS Sabine NX-59846
Originally, this design was supposed to be another Valkyrie fighter. However, with the awesome result and the likeness to another craft in our story, the decision was made that this would be a unique prototype Starfleet gunship that was introduced in Episode 04 in our story. The Sabine was originally a thirty year old scrapped shuttle design in a junkyard, but it was purchased by the character Sera vers Aldnoah. When she visited Starbase 84 in the year 2381, the paperwork on the Sabine did not add up, so she was let stranded there and the barely functioning shuttle was confiscated by Starfleet. It was then upgraded to modern standards. This 3D model was a commissioning by Pinarci here on DeviantArt (pinarci.deviantart.com/). The model and its concept is owned by me.

USS Theurgy NX-79854
This is a 4K render of the Theurgy and assorted other models of mine. While she was inspired by the Odyssey and Bellerophone-classes in Star Trek Online, and retaining the MVAM capacity of the Prometheus-class, the 3D model was a commissioning by Omar Tavera (Omardex) here on DeviantArt (omardex.deviantart.com/). The model and its concept is owned by me, but this project could not have turned out the way it did without Omardex. The model was made in Cinema 4D and rendered in Thea Render, which is quite apt given that the A.I. of the ship is named Thea. 

Mk III Valkyrie Federation Warp Fighters

The Mk III Valkyrie Federation Warp Fighters are those that the Lone-Wolves Squadron use in Star Trek: Theurgy. While they were inspired by the old Gryphon-class fighters originally designed by Andrew Gillespie (KadenDark), the 3D model of my design was a commissioning by Pinarci here on DeviantArt (pinarci.deviantart.com/).

KD-56 Gryphon Warp Fighter, AKA the "Mk II Valkyrie"

The first design of the Gryphon-class was made by Andrew Gillespie (KadenDark) and GK Designs. This version above was made by me and the 3D model was also a commissioning by Omar Tavera (Omardex) (omardex.deviantart.com/).

Logo design by me, and background consist of three stock images from shutterstock (#381303262) and fotolia (1: #94316546, 2:#75454217).

Main Forum page: Star Trek: Theurgy

Star Trek: Theurgy is kind of a progressive novel, composed of large long-lasting story arcs that can go on through several Episodes, as well as the more common plots produced by character interaction. All of this is written cohesively by the writers, edited and corrected by the group and the Game Moderator to assure a consolidated storyline. Other terms for this kind of community are "sim" or "play-by-post/forum roleplaying". 

"What kind of writers are we looking for at Star Trek: Theurgy?"

We're looking for good, descriptive and creative writers that can handle English well. You should also know enough about the Star Trek Universe to be able to partake in creating intense, interesting storylines together with the other writers. We are a very literate group, with a minimum posting requirement of 200 words per post, and the commitment to the story is long-term. We have been running the story actively for five years, and we will continue for many years to come. Therefore, we are not interested in casual, brief commitments, but something that will last for many years.

"What's the nature of the story?"

Star Trek: Theurgy is a detailed, quite dark, story-driven and long-term roleplay and while it's rated 18+, it is not some shoe-horned excuse to write Star Trek smut scenes. If that's what you are looking for, you can look elsewhere since you'll be really disappointed.

It is not expected of any of our writers to detail the intimate relations of their characters with others, even if it's allowed. Several writers among us have an aversion to writing graphic sexual scenes, so if that's not what you care for, then that's no problem at all. The story revolves around a ship and a crew in dire straits, against impossible odds, and with a lot of intrigue and mystery to it. We just don't enforce limits on what you care to write, like explicit scenes of violence or intimacy, as long you adhere to our General Rules and all writers consent to the specific scene their characters are in.

"How do I join the story?"

This page should serve quite well for an answer, but it's recommended you contact the Game Moderator if you have any questions: Joining the Crew.
