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.

For the fourth year in a row, Memory Theta is recognized by the Tournament of Sims hosted by Ongoing Worlds (called WarGames this year as an anniversary for something or other). Only 25 out of 70 entrants scored high enough among the judges to be awarded and Memory Theta was among them. We got some interesting feedback which I wanted to pass along:

This sim does a great job with: Neat twist on posting, each post is 1
mission day. For a smaller sim, that's a good way to keep readers from
missing things.
One thing they could work on is: A lot of the posts seemed to be more
character driven than plot driven. Nothing wrong AT ALL with character
development, but keeping a balance of the two is helpful for readers.

This sim does a great job with setting the scenes and interactions between characters. I especially enjoy how well written the characters are. One thing they could work on nothing I can really find, only criticism I have is some of the posts are very very long which may cause people to lose interest or skip through.

This sim does a great job with general writing.
One thing they could work on is making things clearer, more detail.



Congratulations to you all and well done! The internet still things we're based. For more details and to check out other winners, follow the link below.

» The Simming Prize

Posted on Wed Feb 16th, 2022 @ 9:45pm by Captain Mrazak in General News

"One of the best role plays on the net today, Memory Theta excels in all aspects of simming. From deep character development to intricate plot devices to taking the unexpected turn, this crew always keeps things interesting. Their commitment to excellence has been recognized many times over, most recently by taking home top prize at the Tournament of Simulations."

The Simming Prize 2020

Truth be told, I had never heard of this particular award before, but it appears we were nominated multiple times last year since the explanation given includes our top place in last year's Tournament of Sims. I have no idea who nominated because I had no idea we were nominated. Congratulations on becoming internet famous!

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!
