I'm, quite obviously - looking for a fleet. I'm in the UK Timezone, but playing around the weekend mostly means timezones are kind of irrelevant. I'm 21 in all but 12 days, so, fairly mature age-wise.. as for attitude.. well, wouldnt want to ruin this already, would i? .
Hello Caulintir.

The {UFP} is very active during peak GMT hours on weekdays and for the reasons you touched on, during much of the weekend too, so you shouldn't have difficulty reaching people during your particular gaming hours.

We try to provide for a variety of events via our Event Co-ordinators, and our member's interests are quite diverse.
Our TeamSpeak 3 channel is an excellent resource, for gaming, general chat or admin comms (if applicable). You'll find our channel is also quite active (our stats:

Yea I know where you're coming from with that, that's always a great plus point with a communicative fleet. Also when you get to know people, if things do go wrong it's better to have a laugh about it with mates than get stressed with strangers and ruin the experience.
In the "Task Force" I run (one of our optional 5 man team set ups in the fleet) the advantage of course in doing STFs in a fleet, is even if someone needs to drop out or the general consensus is to leave it for now, you can always arrange a time to come back to it and pick up where you left off... something you really can't do on a public basis.

You're definitely not alone in this situation, we've recruited a fair number of people hearing about the vast improvements that have happened to STO, certainly in more recent times and are feeling like getting back into it.

We try to make sure everyone is having fun and feel they are involved, and of course where we occasionally fail (as no institute is perfect), we're always open to, and in fact actively encouraging feedback, constructive criticism, and proposals to make our fleet better - and provide facilities to do this via.

If you'd like more information, feel free to contact me (John Hathaway@Hathaway), or visit our website at
