In times of open hostility and all out war, as the Federation now faces on multiple fronts, the standard Starfleet model of defense is no longer sufficient. As such, the Federation has commissioned a number of defense fleets designed with an infrastructure supporting rapid response, weapons research, the securing of vital resources, and border enforcement. The 5th Omicron Fleet is one of the first of these defense fleets, and is quickly becoming one of the most recognized and respected fleets in the Federation.
The time to advance your career and secure the safety of the Federation is now! Transfer applications to positions in the 5th Omicron Fleet have priority over any non-defense posting, so if you are accepted for the position, you cannot be denied transfer by your current command.
Apply now and help keep the federation secure, and our families safe.
(( The 5th Omicron Fleet is now recruiting! We are a tight knit fleet with a core group of primarily real-life or pre-STO friends, and now we're looking to expand our family. While it is our intention to try to experience everything this game has to offer, we have a particular emphasis on recruiting members with an interest in coordinated group PvP, with an equal interest in RP.
Here's what 5OF has to offer:
- A coordinated group PvP experience
- Military-style RP structure, promotion ceremonies and events (not required, but encouraged)
- Gear acquisition through crafting, endgame PvE, and PvP.
- Friendly players willing to lend a hand for missions, with equipment hand-me-downs, and for training bridge officers.
- A core group that has invested in lifetime memberships, and isn't going anywhere for a long time, come hell or high plasma.
- Forums and Ventrilo, both of which will be vital for planning and executing strategy, as well as building a community.
- A fleet Wiki, primarily for RP purposes.
