((Hello, I am currently patchig the game and should be on in an hour or so, Can anyone tell me some good RP fleets that are prominent and are willing to accept a Newbie to the Star Trek Universe? Thanks!))
We aren't a large fleet by far but we are a little into the RP. Due to being a small fleet at present we haven't had a whole lot of call for RP but we are currently recruiting and would be happ to accept a newbie. A few of our members are newbies to the whole MMORPG type of gaming. Stop by http://highguard.guildlaunch.com and check us out. If you have any questions feel free to email direct from here. Hope to hear from you.
Red Squadrons would seem to fit your criteria well, we do have a laugh (even if sometimes its over something silly ^^) we do support players wanting end game PvP and PvE and RP, and with 11 years of experience, I think we're a pretty bonded fleet
We are a military styled fleet, with the Red Squadrons Taskforce serving as our Federation Fleet and the Red Squadrons Battlefleet serving for our Klingon players! And if you want to play in both, your more than welcome (we do encourage it to develop PvP tactics .
We're pretty well known around the Trek gaming community and know a lot of cool fleets whom we have a laugh with pretty often!
You might be interested in the Alpha Centauri Institute.
We are a mature, quality fleet of role-players who conduct weekly and bi-weekly story lines, plots, and side-plots. We encourage all types of RP, and usually have several mini-plots and personal stories running at any given time. We attempt to run fleet action get togethers on at least a bi-weekly basis when time permits.
While the Institute is mostly themed as a Science division, we do have a military defense section that I believe would fit with your character's background. During in-game RP events, they are usually tasked with (when the situation demands it) fleet protection and defense.
We are growing fast, and regularly have at least five to ten people online at any given time. If you'd like to see us in action, you can usually find some of us in the Lounge at Earthdock, Quark's at DS9, or Starbase 39. If you have any questions or would simply like to make contact with us, please contact either Silveda (Silveda@Quarie) or myself (Sanek@Cerebus06).
You can also find more information at our website: http://aci.guildportal.com. Our Recruiting page shows all the requirements to join us, and be sure to check out our forums - especially our Ten Forward board where we conduct our offline forum RP to get an idea of what we do, how we do it, and if it's right for you.
