Good morning, all. I'm Izzy Smith, a veteran of the game, and I play a Liberated Borg who has become well-adjusted to humanity again after his rescue from the Collective some seven or so years ago.
I'm not looking for a "hardcore" fleet... one that makes you "earn" your ships as you progress in level. Or makes you earn "merits" to get a new rank. This sort of behavior made me leave a fleet before...
Let's face it... it's easy to progress in level in this game, and I'm not going to be stuck flying a Constitution class at Captain levels. Or "paying" into a fleet guild account to have my "new ship built"... it's insane. I'd just like to roleplay.
I'm not going to roleplay anything past Captain's rank, I figure once I make Captain, that's good, I'm in charge of a ship that Starfleet hands me to take care of. Any "Admiral" ranks after that will be in RP, from the trust and the friendships I make in the Fleet. If I get promoted past Captain in the Fleet, then that's great, I'll assume that role.
An old time Trekker, I used to play Starfleet Command 1 and 2, Armada, and a few other games. I'm well aquainted with the Trek universe. I just restarted my character... he just got done with the tutorial. I did mail him a few things to help get started... heh. But other than that...
Look for me, @izzysmith, or the NX-WrathStar, or just message me in game or leave a post here. I'm serious about making the game a Trek story for myself... not just "fly or die" or "you bow down to us" sort of things...
I'm genuine, I'm curious if anyone is out there. Let's find out. Thanks!
at the moment...
Lt. Izzy Smith
Commanding Officer, U.S.S. WrathStar-NX
I think the 12th fleet fits your playstyle very well. I'm proud to say that we have an active community going on our forums and in the game and not just some people that play together as a group.
We're a very casual friendly fleet and we literally have several thousand pages of rp content written on our forums already. My own biographies and captain's logs number somewhere in the 150 pages already and that's excluding all the forum rping I took part in. ^_^
Currently we don't have much going yet in the form of in-game rp, but we're gonna start that up real soon. Yesterday we started forming a team to create Foundry content for the fleet and this should be a lot of fun.
We have a very good fleet structure going and mature members (average age is 31+).
I hope your search for a fleet has gone well, but if you are still searching I would suggest you visit the Alpha Centauri Institute.
We are an active RP fleet and have just re-opened our recruiting. All players hold any RP rank they wish, up to Captain, regardless of actual in-game rank. Your ship, its crew, and your character's style and assignments are your own.
We run regular in-game RP in casual settings and host RP episodes built around game elements. With the upcoming release of the Foundry our commitment to RP will only grow. We also encourage Forum RP to explore more detailed and nuanced aspects of your character and our community. And we encourage members to flesh out their character's history and relations on our Guild wiki.
Please visit our site and review our regulations and procedures to see if the ACI is a good fit for you.
