Print Screen button. The shots can be pasted immediately into a program or rather more handily, if you want them without all the HUD stuff and/or you don't want to alt-tab out of the game, you can find them all later on in a screenshots folder within the installation folder of the game.

I have created a Vulcan SCI captain and Vulcans are my favourite race in ST. That's why I'm interested in your fleet. What should I do to enter?

I live in Europe, so I would like to know if you think it is likely for us to be able to play at the same time: I'm connected by 21h to 23 CET. Of course, if most of the fleet is located in other time zones, I doubt I could collaborate with any of you...

I am pleased that you see the soundness of the notion of a Vulcan Fleet, that treasures logic, analysis and intellect as we move into the turbulent times of 2409. Welcome!

LIke you, Vulcans are my favorite race, and like you, I chose the Science career field - my favorite aspect is tractor beams.

Here is the process you follow to join the VKF:
  1. Visit www.vulcankolinahrfleet.com and register (link at the top of the window for an account. You will get a quick reply via email to verify your address. Click the link in that email, and you become a registered user in our forum.
  2. Go back to the forum and log into the account you just created. Visit the Recruiting Center (link on the left-side menu) and review the articles. Then, go to the Forum (main menu link), and the Recruitment Center forum under the Administrative Wing.
  3. Go to the thread "New Recruits - Apply to the VKF by replying to this post" and post a reply. That is your application for a commission in the VKF.
  4. You will receive one email from me with further instructions. Basically, you wait for your application to be approved (up to 24 hours), and then log into the VKF forum with a new username (the username you used to create your account prefixed by [VKF]). By logging in with that username, you have accepted your commission in the VKF

We are a worldwide Fleet and have members in Belgium, the UK and Iceland, for example. I am in the USA (east coast), and often find myself online and in-game with Fleet-mates from there and other timezones. I believe that as gamers, we all structure our personal schedules to get in as much game time as possible, and there is always at least one (and usually 2-8) VKF members online when I am. Also, the VKF actively pursues alliances with other Federation Fleets, and that widens the circle of potential players - both in terms of being in-game and in the same sector or mission. The STO universe is large, but we always find each other. I think you will be pleased with both the availability of Fleet-mates in-game, and the comeraderie. English is our lingua franca (with some Vulcan mixed in), and we have a Vent server for voice chat. Voice chat really helps out in teaming, much faster than the Chatbox.

I truly hope that you visit our forum soon, and I know you will discover the most formidible force in STO, the VKF. Live Long and Prosper!

Thanks a lot for the info: this evening I'll visit your forum.

Tinead, how can I contact you ingame? I know I sound stupid, but I've never needed to contact anybody until now and don't have the slightest idea on how to do that...

He's Josh@Tinead, just type into your chatbox

/tell Josh@Tinead and whatever you want.

He's in-game now, I just left him in Earth Spacedock.

Once you're in the Fleet, we have a Fleet channel for chat as well as a Fleet roster so folks can more easily communicate. It's at the same place as the emotes, just above the list. Oh, and I'm Keysailor@Keysailor

That's the Character@handle, so you will be (your character's name)@Soran-di-Vulcano but once you're in the Fleet you can pick a name off the roster to send pms or tells. And the Fleet zone operates like the Team zone, (as opposed to Local) where only the Fleet sees your words.

If you have a headset, you'll find the Ventrilo voicechat to be a big improvement over the chatbox!

Looking forward to welcoming you to the VKF!

Cheers!

With thanks to Doctor Sinister and our Wing Commander Vishion for their contributions, here are the screen captures of the ceremony we held on a hill (now designated as Hill Weed743) to celebrate the life of our Fleet-mate, Weed743, who passed away recently.

Just to let you know that I've registered to the VKF forum: as soon as I receive its mail, I'll go on with the registration procedures.

See you all on game! Ah, by the way, my captain's name is Soran.

Thank you to all who attended our services for our good friend and fleetmate, Jack Marshall, yesterday. There have been inquires regarding the photos taken at the service to which there are links in the messages above and there will be more coming. One program which is free to download to take pictures like these can be found at http://www.etrusoft.com/
