I was trying to not contradict what Nat said happened with his character while having some participation in that arc. So... basically anything he didn't claim was fair game at the time.

But the beauty of this is that the storyline of STO still occurred, but instead of having it be ran by a singular player, each arc had it's own Captain...
And we were all off either on "unplayed" events ("I was in the task force sent to delay the Heralds around Procyon 3 and all I got was this T-shirt" type deals) or were "bit players" in the major fleet actions under the "RPer in charge of that 'area'"...

Well, we'd try not to have that many RPers lay claim to one mission, as that would be just silly.
I think it'd be a little difficult to "conveniently forget" major past events...
As I see it, each RP character could be "the player" for just a couple/few missions of a story arc (or in the case of a short story arc of episodes that fit together tightly, like the Breen episode series, an entire story arc), or even just parts of missions (without contradicting others, of course), while fleet actions, STFs, background events (like the task force delaying the Heralds at Procyon 3), warzones, PvP, etc. can be more generalized to include several RPers, sometimes even everyone. And of course, players can always make up other events to have happened in the meanwhile, avoiding "the player" completely.
For instance, I seem to already have claimed being "the player" during the New Romulus section of "Blood of Ancients" and the entirety of "Midnight", and those alone are probably enough as it is. Sure, I've mentioned having been involved in repelling the Dominion occupation of DS9, leading STFs against the Borg and Iconians, and being a temporal agent, but those aren't specific to any mission in particular, and leave room for literally anyone else. So, you know, hopefully I haven't already gone too far...?

Hey everyone. Since I'm new to STO and my characters are under-ranked, I'd only like to claim the beginning of SF and Rom stories; IE captain is killed by Klingon, player takes over, etc. And Tal-Shiar bombard V-planet colony and player beams onto an old BOP.
I'm sure no one's story will conflict with mine lol

Oh, Nat, I want to get Terry in on your mission, but I also want to put him through a psych eval before he decides. Maybe I'll have him bump into you first.
