Back in the pre-beta days a 'handsmcgee' made an 'Orion Syndicate' site. I joined the site,but where it said to apply for membership I could never get to work ( it needed a password but I never found out what it was). It doesn't seem to be very active since beta even.
Haven't been on the Klingon side lately ( Navaar) so I don't know whats going on there.
I'm working on a stogeek thing but it'll take a while.
I wonder where the rare species are anyways. Haven't met another Ferengi yet, not seen a single Betazoid... The social areas I see are crowded with things that look like people randomized all alien options. Good luck finding other Fed Orions, I start to give up my idea about a rare species fleet.
