Do you need a reliable roleplay community with an interesting sci-fi setting you can contribute to?
Star Army is a long-running community dedicated to forum roleplaying games set within the original science fiction setting built by many creative players and GMs; your roleplay will help continue to build the Star Army's shared universe.
Star Army is a term for an interstellar military, similar to Space Navy. In this roleplaying game, the star_army_of_yamatai is the military arm of the Yamatai Star Empire. Originally, all roleplay was centered around the Star Army; however, the setting has grown over the years to include many other nations and organizations in an ever-expanding universe.

If you have never participated in a roleplay, that is not a problem. The concept of roleplaying is simple: Write the words and actions of your character. As a kid you had no problem coming up with stories and adventures for your toys; as an adult it's important to hold onto your imagination. Putting yourself in the shoes of a Star Army® character can provide a creative output and a fun contrast to everyday life.
There's no complex RPG system, no points, die rolling, or math to keep track of. Star Army's roleplaying is done by writing.
Star Army is a “soft” sci-fi setting with faster-than-light travel.
If you love Star Trek, Star Wars, and/or Macross, you will be at home in the Star Army universe.
The story is set sometime into the future where humanity has spread throughout the stars. Much information has been lost in wars, including Earth's location and most of history. What matters is the last 30 or so years, which has seen the rise of the mighty Yamatai Star Empire and its various offshoots, which are faced with constant political and military conflicts.

Star Army is owned and operated by Wes Davis and run with the help of an amazing team of volunteer staff, moderators, and game masters.
Star Army is my passion. Growing up I became fan of science fiction through reading books and watching Star Trek. When I was in high school I was introduced to anime and roleplaying games and started running games with my friends and family. In 2000, I ventured into the world of online roleplaying and web design and created a character that became the seed of the Star Army universe. By 2003, the community around that universe had grown to the point we needed our own website, so I created StarArmy.com. Since then, the Star Army community and universe have grown and matured, becoming the internet's number one sci-fi military roleplaying community and I want you to be a part of it.
I love Science Fiction, I got hooked when I was a child watching the Original Star Trek when it was first aired. My loves for Sci-Fi lead me through forms, television shows, movies, and of course books. I started role-playing back in 1981, yes that's right. It was not long after that I found my first Sci-Fi RPG; which was Traveller®. Over the years I have played a wide variety of RPG's, but I always gravitate back to Sci-Fi. I joined Star Army three years ago after spending about a month checking out the site. I was intrigued by the community and found the amount of information available surprising. Since joining, I have contributed a lot of content to the site; I also help Wes with maintaining it. But more importantly I have made friends with a lot of people whom otherwise I would have never met.
