your respective gameplay style. During these missions,
you will learn communication protocols and how to write
within ACTD parameters. It is also recommended that,
before your training begins, you read the Chat

Frequently Asked Questions
software do I need to play the game?
Please click on the Setup
link. A Call To Duty recommends either MSChat or mIRC
as suitable chat clients.
do I create a character?
When you have completed the training program, you will
be asked to fill out a form to create your character.
Characters must be "canon" (TV and film only)
trek, Federation-member/friendly races.
rank can I choose for my character?
All graduates from the training missions are assigned
to a Ship or Station as either a Cadet or as an Ensign.
does my character get promoted in rank/position?
A rank or position promotion is based upon the quality
of your role-playing and level of participation during
the chat sessions, as well as the quality of your log
when playing by Chat. During Newsgroup and Play by E-mail
missions, the quality of your posting will determine
how quickly you are promoted. Your Ship Manager and
Captain will promote you when they feel it is appropriate.
rating does this Role-play adhere to?
A Call To Duty is aware that there are many younger
players within our player base and many more who are
keen to join us, therefore we have set up ratings for
each particular division of the game, and game staff
work hard to ensure that gameplay is kept to these standards.
Our player off-duty "lounge" is rated G, the
missions PG, and the Newsgroup and Play-By-Email divisions are rated PG, R, or NC-17.

in Pacific. You must convert to your local time zone
when making your selection of training days. For example:
