Greetings Captains,

Here at Starfleet Command, we're hard at work developing a video about STAR TREK TIMELINES that will be featured between panels on the main stage at Star Trek Las Vegas, and may also be used for a variety of other promotional opportunities. Rather than just say why we think STAR TREK TIMELINES is such a great game, we want to share your voices!

To participate, record a video at the highest quality you are able and answer the following questions:

1. What is your FULL LEGAL name, date of birth, email address, and phone number (with Area Code (US & Canada) or Country Code (international))?*

2. State and spell your name as you would like it to appear in the video (This should be what you go by in your day-to-day life).

3. State and spell your in-game name.

4. Why did you start playing STAR TREK TIMELINES?

5. Why do you still play?

6. What is your favorite storyline in the game?

7. What would you say to Star Trek fans about the game?

8. What are you most excited to see in the game both now and in the future?

9. What is your favorite ship to command in Ship Battles and why?

After completing your video, email it (or a link to it) to STTVideos@disruptorbeam.com no later than 12:00 PM ET (16:00 UDT) on MONDAY JULY 11 2016. Entries received after the deadline will not be considered for this video, but may be considered for future use.

If your video is selected, we'll need you to sign a standard release giving us the right to use it. Those whose videos are selected will be notified by Wednesday, July 13th and will have twenty-four hours to return a signed release form.

*We collect this information in order to prepare your release and get in touch with you if your video is selected. We won't share it unless required to by law.

 

TIPS FOR SUBMITTING A GREAT VIDEO

1. Turn on ALL the lights. Even if a room feels bright, video cameras will pick up shadows and record substantially less light than you perceive.

2. Speak more slowly than usual, and enunciate. People tend to speak quickly when they are being recorded. If you feel like you are speaking unusually slow, you're probably just right.

3. Look at the camera, not at the screen. This is especially true if you are using a mobile phone or tablet where the camera is high up on the device and often off-center. 

4. Don't wear clothes with logos, slogans, or trademarked symbols. We can't use other people's intellectual property in our promotional videos. This includes Star Trek logos.

5. Smile! This is supposed to be fun - you're telling other Star Trek fans about a Star Trek game! If you smile on camera, your voice will sound better. 

6. If you have a microphone, use it. If not, make sure that background noise is minimal and that you are speaking loudly enough for your device's built-in microphone to pick you up clearly. Some common hidden noisemakers are air conditioners/heaters, birds outside an open window, and fans.

7. If you make a mistake, don't worry! Pause, say "Take 2," pause again, and start your last sentence over from the beginning. We don't want you to start over from the beginning because of a tongue-twister.

8. Profanity, nudity, and attacks on other players are not allowed. We're making a video that we would like Picard to enjoy, so let's keep it on that level.

9. Answer all of the questions. If you don't, we probably won't be able to use your video!

10. Repeat the question, and restate it in your answer. For example, if the question is "Why did you start playing STAR TREK TIMELINES," read the questions aloud, look into the camera, and start "I started playing Star Trek timelines because..."
