Hello LimoDriver, welcome back to STO.
I can understand getting back into the flow of things could be difficult. At {UFP} we've recruited a fair number of new recruits either rejoining or coming onto STO for the first time, so you wouldn't be alone in that situation. Our forums are also a helpful resource to ask questions or look up information which is designed to help both veterans and newcomers alike.

We're all for getting people together and involved, but of course only to the extent that people want to be involved. Aside from a monthly roll call, just so we know who's still around, there are no pressures to take part in activity or a quota of any kind to meet. RL commitments will always take priority and we're fully appreciative of this.
We do host an active TeamSpeak 3 server, which we regularly use for gaming and socialising. It's particularly useful during fleet events, and has people online pretty much round the clock as we're an international fleet.

We do have an out of game rank system which is based on activity levels, voluntary positions available and other general activities. It isn't used as a bragging right tool, but rather a way for us to thank our members who take time to improve the fleet in any particular way or form.

I think {UFP} might well be a worthwhile fleet to check out. You can find us at and feel free to contact me personally should you have any questions.

Kind Regards,
