The VKF is medium RP, but doesn't enforce RP on members (it's up to individual choice). We have a Fleet bank with items to help you equip or craft, even a Fleet Uniform - but also this is not required. We have Vent for voicechat, but don't require anyone to use it either. We have members worldwide, including many in the EU timezones.
Our goal is to enrich the STO experience for our members, and we only ask that our members share information and intel, and team with each other whenever available, convenient, and mutually beneficial. Otherwise, our Fleet resources are at your optional disposal, if and when you need them, they are there for you.
