quotes.pngI've always held the Galileo close to my heart, it is one of those simms that makes you feel more like a family and the people you meet you'll remember for a lifetime. That sort of simm only comes once in a lifetime and requires a certain amount of TLC from its GM and crew. #GalileoProud.quotes.pngI'm usually quite picky when it comes to choosing a SIM I want to write on. A lot of different factors go into my choice, including things like community building, a strong focus on story elements, and an emphasis on character development that doesn't feel restricted. Galileo has all these things in abundance.
quotes.pngI’ve been simming since something like 1998, and I’m heartbroken that I didn’t find Galileo until May of 2012. Aboard no other sim have I found such a high quality of posting activity, writing talent, diverse characters, variety of missions, and players that are both eager and welcoming. Galileo is one of a kind.quotes.pngMy favourite thing about the Galileo is the scope of writing it allows for. When you've been writing on Trek sims for a while, there's a danger that missions can become stale. But we cover such a wide range of sub genres within our mission arcs that it's perfect for writers who really want something to get their teeth into.
