History

The Knights Templar were officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favored charity throughout Christendom, and grew rapidly in membership and power. They were established to protect the poor, weak and less skilled armies.

The Knights Templar of The United Federation of Planets is a contemporary version of its predecessor. With the loss of the Khitomer Accord and the rise in tension in the Neutral Zone Starfleet thought it prudent to institute a specialized fleet. In 2407 the Knights Templar Fleet was established by the Federation to perform high-risk operations that fell outside the abilities, functions and duties of regular Starfleet missions.

Its purpose, to defend all those requiring aid at all cost. The first ship assigned to this new, unique fleet was the Hektor in 2408. Soon after flying her maiden voyage on stardate: 86045.3, several other units were added to the fleet to better protect Starfleet vessels and those of its allies.

Though no longer endorsed by a religious power their duty remains the same and though much has changed in over 1,200 years, their mandate remains virtually the same.

"The Knights Templar exist to defend ships in distress and to uphold the principles of the Federation in the most dire circumstances. When others lack courage, the Knights Templar hold the line. As Starfleet Officers, we do not seek conflict, but as Knights we will never turn away from it."

Since its foundation in 2407 the Knights Templar Fleet has grown to a size of 35 ships strong and is still growing. Officers are recruited on a simple premise; Respect begets Respect. Value your fellow Knights, hold other officers in high regard and respect your enemy. This has been the root of their prominence, making their prestigious posts highly sought after by Federation Officers looking for opportunities to prove their valor. The sense of pride, dedication and courage of the men and women of the Knights Templar Fleet has become renowned throughout Starfleet and the Federation.

Fleet Details

Ship details are currently classified under Starfleet Order 5839 section 2.

About Us

We are a fleet that caters to casual gamers who put fun first. There is no mandatory minimum attendance but we ask you to warn us in advance for prolonged absences. The main requirements are to follow our fleet mandate (purpose) and be over 21. People close to said age will be handled on a case per case basis. No offence but we want mature players, not kids. Our guideline on the forum is to respect everyone and their opinions.

Gameplay

This will consist mainly of light RP, PvP and PvE. Our affiliation lies with the Federation. Fleet members should protect the weak and help where needed. In other words we will provide assistance to solo players or small teams/fleets when they need a helping hand, but not to ‘needy attention grabbers’. We will also protect new players and help them get up and running if they ask us. Show respect and you shall receive it!

The Order

The Order is a group of members chosen by the fleet with a rotating membership. Their orders are twofold:

In game they will manage distribution of fleet resources (not player resources).

On the forum they will be first contact point for new members and people wanting to join us. They will answer member questions and suggestions, and will be moderators for internal disputes.

welcome to the knights templar (KT) fleet thread.

we are a casual, +21, fed fleet.

who are we? well, we've listened to journey, the turtles, pink floyd, and even wayne newton! we've seen star trek V (yes, it really did happen), tron, north by northwest, and something like the matrix. we've read emmerson, paliniuk, dante, and stan lee. we've played civ1, sc2000, and DAO. we span different time zones from oceania to england to washington. men and women, ages ranging from 20-68...and we all enjoy playing STO as a close-knit fleet.

have a look around, get to know the people. let us know if you'd be interested in joining.

Morning bump before heading back in, got to level that LtCmdr up a bit more so we can group up for the Crystaline Entity. Managed to do a fleet action with 10 yesterday which was a ton of fun.

Hello,

I am creating a fleet database to allow possible applicants find the right fleet for them. I added this fleet and you can find it on the following URL: http://www.rportal.nl/fleetfinder/viewfleet.php?id=31

Could you review the information and let me know if this is accurate, or adjust it yourself by claiming it? Thank you in advance.

Kind regards.
Roger
