I wanted to take a moment to reply to your post. I understand you are looking for a european based fleet. You will find that most fleets aren't based in one particular area but are global. I'd ask that you consider the VKF. We are not based in one particular continent or county. Our membership is spread fairly evenly over the United States and Europe. Our European membership is mainly comprised of members from the UK and Germany. These members are very active in the fleet, organizing events and/or simply in-game teaming or flying solo. You will find members online most hours of the day. Certainly during peak EU game times.
Also, we have a sister Klingon (KDF) fleet if that interests you. We created this fleet so our members can have the full STO experience. It's not a requirement that you participate in the KDF side, just available if desired.
I've included a standard recruiting thread below which contains contact information for our fleet. Please take a look at our website, do some reading, and see if the VKF is a good fit for you. Also, don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet
Good afternoon. I hope you will take a moment and consider the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet. We are a small but great and growing fleet. We are easy going, dedicated and friendly. We all come from different backgrounds and have different ways of doing things, but thatís part of what makes us great.
Anyone in our fleet is happy to help others when needed, in almost any aspect of the game and in some case RL. We have a fleet Ventrilo server that we use for voice chat not just in-game but also to hang out as well and get to know each other better (not required, just available). Many of us are located on the East Coast (USA) and the UK, but we do have members scattered across the globe.
Although I say our fleet is dedicated, we also realize that everyone has lives as well, so therefore when you need to take the time, you don't need to be concerned about losing your position within the fleet due to RL. We do not discriminate against such things because we understand that sometimes real life issues and problems can take time to resolve, and that some time is needed to sort things out.
So please, think about joining and moving with us into 2409 armed with the best Intel, the most specific and targeted body of knowledge about STO, and a group of Fleet-mates who will be there with you in the crunch.
