We are a cooperative science fiction writing group based in Gene Roddenberry's universe of Star Trek. We use a traditional
freestyle form of writing in the past tense, third-person point of view, focusing on character and story development. Our
forum is a PBEM venue and authors are encouraged to engage in their own narrative prose through the development of subplots
and independent storytelling. This creative writing campaign promotes writing skill, thoughtful story design, and mutual respect
for contributing authors as well as their characters.
WHAT IS A PBEM?
A PBEM is an acronym for "Play-By-E-Mail." Put simply, players add to the main storyline by sending e-mail messages
to a mail list (such as Yahoo! Groups) that explains their characters' actions or responses to an environment set by the gamemaster
(GM). This form of storytelling allows players to spend time crafting their messages before sending it to the rest of the
players. Therefore, we find it an ideal forum for individuals who enjoy thinking their way through a plot and coming up with
creative responses to the actions of other players.
Starbase Horizon operates under the auspices of Star Trek: Borderlands.
