The Final Goodbye

Hey all,

The staff and I have talked about this and have decided that it’s time to end NewHopeMUSH.

The reason for this is both complicated and simple. Let’s focus on the truth. The truth of the matter is that people have lost interest in both running and playing this game.

When I lost interest, I took a step back and let Alias run it. He tried his best and found multiple people to help. In turn, they too lost interest. In the end, there is only one active staff member, besides Alias and myself, and that is Leia.

The truth of the matter is that it takes a team to get a product off the ground. We lacked the help to do that. In this way, the project failed to move forward.

I, personally, have learned from this. I believe the others have as well. As such, I don’t count this as a failure but, rather, a success. Learning something helps us grow.

If nothing else can be said for this adventure, let it be said we learned and grew from it.

I want to thank each and every person, staff or player, who has contributed to NewHopeMUSH over the years. Thank you for your time and your support.

Jeffrey (Kimojuno).

Server Downtime

Hello all,

There was approximately seven hours of downtime today. This was due to an issue affecting the physical host that NewHopeMUSH resides on. Due to this, our provider had to take the server offline while they resolved the issues. This was beyond the scope of our ability to control and, unfortunately, due to security concerns, no prior warning was issued.

We understand that it is helpful to know when these things will occur but, unfortunately, we were unable to provide any notice due to the emergency maintenance.

As such, if there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to join us on our Discord at

Update Staff Post Listing



Welcome back!

We have a load of changes for you, the reader! For the potential player, staff member, and potential involved.

The Captain of Starbase 900 would like to step down. Meaning, we need a new Captain!

The Chief Engineer wishes to transfer to another starbase, so we need some one to step up!

The Chief Science Officer wants to change departments. Meaning we need a new experimenter in the lab!

Think you got what it takes? Think you know the position? Think you can handle it? Apply here:

IC Senior Staff Application

We also have a number of Staff positions open!

Are you a Reddit power user? How about Facebook? Got Discord power? Know Wikia?

We could use a helping hand with all of these platforms.

Know where to advertise for the game, where to find all the good RP’ers? We could use a recruiter!

Are you good at writing? Think you got mad pen skills? We want to challenge you!

Open staff positions: Builder&Coder, two Writers, Moderator Team, Social Media Administration / Moderation, and Game Recruiters. If you’re serious about it, join us in discord, and talk with us about how and why you should be made a team member today!

You can apply here:

OOC Staff Application

What  is expected of staff?

A single person may out for several roles at once. Don’t hesitate to admit you can’t handle something. I’d rather you decide to step down from a position you don’t favor then find out you’ve been struggling for some time. Like a single person may take charge of all of the social media, but decides Facebook is too much work in conjunction with Reddit and Twitter, but prefers Facebook, can let go of Twitter and Reddit.

I’d like a semi-formal division between Builder & Coder vs Rules & Mod teams. If only to keep the builders building, and the modders modding. Both Builder Team, and Moderator Team can have as many people as they wish. Moderation team should be kept to a respectable ratio to player base (Once up and running, and open for public play)

Writers keep players engaged. Idea on having three writers, (From **my** point of view.) is to have two main writers, and a tie break should there be a disagreement on something. How story flow should be, I’ll leave to writers… I can’t manage to write my own story in some decent flow style.

Recuiters I’d like to see a new ad or post on a weekly basis, maybe, depending on volume of places that can be advertised on. Active seeking of players would be the job.
Expectations of all* staff:

  • Respect towards other staff.
  • Respect to players.
  • A minimal weekly contribution to the community. IE:
    • Posts to social media
    • continuation of story
    • a newly built room | corrected code
    • new recruit ad.
    • Something!
  • To follow the same rules as non-staff.

Cardassian Union

The Cardassian Union has spoken with the three powers of the Alpha Quadrant and have managed to gain permission to join them on the station.

Things won’t be easy for members of the Union, as they attempt to once more take their proper position at the top of the food chain.

New Staff Member

Hey all,

Exciting news, we have a new staff member that will help us with building & coding! He has 20+ years of experience with coding and running MUSH games. Please welcome Fantom to the team!


Server Maintenance Completed

Hey all,

The scheduled maintenance from our host server is completed. This maintenance was required due to security concerns. As of 5:00AM Eastern Time, the server, game, and clients were back online. Everything should be up and running. If there are any issues, please let myself or a member of staff know.


Poll Results

Hello all,

The poll resulted in the players leaning to allowing sexual roleplay in private areas. As such, the MUSH rules have been adjusted to allow such.

NewHopeMUSH is a game for anyone over the age of eighteen (18) years of age. If it is discovered that a player is not over the agre of eighteen (18), that player will be banned immediately. The reason for this is that sexual roleplay is allowed in private areas of the MUSH. Sexual roleplay can only occur in private settings and nowhere in public areas. Should sexual roleplay be engaged in public areas, appropriate steps will be taken. This could range from IC issues, for example a character being written up, demoted, etc, to OOC sanctions should it be determined as needed. Please note, however, that when we say ‘sexual’ we don’t mean kissing or other such Public Displays of Affection. We are talking about engaging in sexual acts.

It should also be noted that, although we now have a place to post logs (the wiki), this will only be logs that were recorded in public areas (e.g. non-sexual logs). This is two-fold: Logging a private roleplay without permission isn’t proper and, further, sexual roleplay is only allowed in private areas.

Moving on, I have also spoken with players on Discord and we have come with the following Starfleet regulations;

0) Before initiating in an intimate relationship with a member of unknown or non-federation alien species or its allies, a crewmember must get clearance from both their CO and the CMO.

1) Although any member of Starfleet may date one another, any and all interactions must remain professional while on duty.

2) No personal relationship, romantic or otherwise, may interfere or affect decisions made involving their position and/or duties (e.g. affecting or changing the duty roster, rotation, or otherwise interfering with the day-to-day operations of their post).

Thank you,

Voting Required

Hello all,

As of right now, the poll is currently leaning toward allowing sexual roleplay in private areas of the MUSH. If you have not voted, please do so so that the Alias and myself can get an idea on what people think.

Please note that, should the final response be yes, then we would need to make sure all players are 18 or older. If someone currently playing is not 18 or older, and the vote passes, then that player would not be able to continue playing.

If you would like to discuss this further, please @mail me on this accou nt or on my Tinyplots (Kimo-) account. You can also contact any staff member on either the MUSH or our Discord.

Thank you,


Hello all,

We have ASpace installed on the game now. This allows for us to create and use space objects (ships, starbases, planets, etc) in the game.

If anyone has experience in using ASpace, we would love your assistance in getting designing and implementing softcode.


New Poll

I have had players request that we allow adult (i.e. sexual) roleplay in private rooms and settings. Obviously, if we allow this, all players will need to be 18+. All current players would need to agree to the new terms and would need to state their age in order to continue playing.

Due to this suggestion, I have created a poll. Please use the page at

Thank you,
