The SBO is an established 7-year-old Fleet of friends dedicated to a few key ideals.
2nd- having fun
3rd- bettering ourselves "in-game" so that we can remain competitive with other guilds and fleets with regards to "end-game" content.
So we are a casual fleet with some hardcore gamers mixed in as well. We neither discourage nor pressure RP, but do have an enjoyable setup of ranks, wings, and awards we've used over the years in various games.
Our members consist of mature players from age 18-60 including married couples, students, and professionals.
All we ask of our members is to play nice in sandbox with each other and no one gets hurt. But we will not tolerate disrespectful behavior among our members.
We are not going to being actively recruiting just yet, but if you run into us in-game on the beta or through any other means we are always happy to receive new members!
This post is for folks who'd rather be in a fleet and have support available when they need it as opposed to going it solo.
Starfleet Black Ops has been together for around 6 or 7 years (dependiing on who you ask) and started out as an active fleet playing many successful campains against other fleets on Starfleet Command III. Regarding STO, we've been playing since the Beta with around 20 alumni members. We also picked up another 10 or so since the Beta started without actively recruiting.
We're all older players who love Trek and do a modest amount of Fleet Role Playing on our forums outside the game. We spend a lot of time hanging out on Ventrillo chatting it up and have been waiting for STO patiently since the Starfleet Command III days where we used to run as a fleet on every campaign we could get our hands on.
Feel free to look us up if you need a place to park your starship!
