UCIP is a Star Trek Roleplaying Organization founded by Fleet Admiral Mark Miller. UCIP International is directed by Fleet Admiral Nick Shermance who is responsible for overseeing both the Internet division of UCIP and the America Online division. Our main goal here at UCIP has always been a simple one - to provide Star Trek fans and enthusiasts alike with realistic Star Trek Simulations for them to participate in, but more importantly, to make sure they are fun and entertaining.
This goal of providing entertaining simulations is achieved in two ways, by IRC and Email. UCIP provides online simulations which are conducted via Inter Relay Chat (IRC). This method allows for live interaction between other officers. The other method is through Email. This involves writing story-like "Logs" which are sent too all the crew of the ship/starbase/etc.. Whilst it may lack the live interaction of IRC, it allows for greater character development and creative writing.
The Confederation is made up of the 3 major powers - Starfleet, the Rihannsu Star Republic and the Klingon Defence Force. Within these fleets are the various Starships, Starbases, Colonies and Secret Service Branches which you can join. The Confederation Academy is where you will receive your training on how to sim. Once you graduate, begin your career in one or more of the fleets and prepare to explore the galaxy.
