The United Fleet Coalition

Giving smaller fleets a larger presence in Star Trek Online!

AND NOW WE HAVE OUR OWN TEAMSPEAK SERVER!!!


Our website has been reborn to make it a stronger COMMUNITY website that better supports both the indpendent fleets that are members of the UFC as well as players who wish to be active among and within us.

Check out our new website at http://unitedfleetcoalition.com today and register while there!

Website: http://UnitedFleetCoalition.com

Have you ever been playing Star Trek Online and wanted to take place in a Special Task Force mission or fleet action but lacked teammates to pull it off?

Have you ever had a night where you didn't want to play the game alone or just wanted others around to socialize, but the fleet channel was a bit on the quiet side?

We have reached a point in the evolution of Star Trek Online where to get the most out of certain aspects of the game, you need enough players -- something larger players can more easily handle but smaller fleets find themselves more stretched.

The United Fleet Coalition has been created as an alternative resource to help smaller fleets create a larger presence for themselves without sacrificing their who and what they are.

The U.F.C. is an alliance of smaller fleets that allows each of its member fleets to meet the challenges of group play in Star Trek Online without giving up their independence.

For participating Coalition fleets and their members, can expect the following from and of the U.F.C.:

  • Our website serves as a gathering place for U.F.C. information, resources and coordination efforts.
  • Our website serves as a gathering place for U.F.C. information, resources and coordination efforts.
  • Each fleet that is a member will have one primary representative and an assistant (keeping it simple) that can speak at the U.F.C.'s Fleet Roundtable.
  • Member fleets stand together yet stand independently. The Coalition is not here to tell the fleets how to manage themselves.
  • Unlike some of the other fleet alliance organizations, the U.F.C. has its own website and thus remains separate from any one fleet.

The United Fleet Coalition will offer the following resources:
  • A listing of participating fleets on ithe U.F.C. website along with info on each.
  • Ability for fleet representatives to post news from their fleet on the Coalition website for added cross-fleet communication.
  • A shared Google calendar that can be jointly maintained by our member fleets and accessed by their members.This also makes it easier to share events across the fleets with the hope of increased attendance. This calendar can also be easily embedded by fleets on their own websites should they so choose.
  • A community Teamspeak server with both UFC community channels and channels for member fleets as well.
  • A private in-game chat channel will be maintained by the Coalition and be open to all members of the various member fleets. The purpose of this channel is to allow for better cross-fleet teaming and socialization. (Each fleet will have a member with admin privelages to the channel, allowing for easy addition of their fleet's members.)
    Planned "Coalition" gatherings and events that will happen on an as yet to be determined basis.
  • A private admin forum is being hosted on the U.F.C. website for use by fleet representatives in coordinating discussions / announcements of planned events, general cross-fleet communications, etc.
  • A facebook page has been set up to help keep those interested in the Coalition informed of its news and happenings.

If your fleet is interested in joining the United Fleet Coalition, then let us know!

--- this document remains a work in progress ---

*** A note to all ... If you are a fleet representative and are planning to sign up on the UFC's website, either let us know via this thread that you have done so (or are doing so) or send me a PM.

This is so that we know to approve you on that end as you know how spammers are like tribbles breeding on a Federation starship.

Also, you have to be registered in order to see the forums on the UFC website.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

As more and more players are finding their way to the UFC shared Teamspeak server, we have currently been working on the layout and scope of channels to offer more variety while making for a more pleasant experience for everyone.

Currently, the channels are divided up into the UFC public areas where players from all fleets can mingle and below that channels that are fleet specific.

[SIZE=5] The UFC Community Teamspeak[/SIZE]

The UFC Shared Teamspeak Server can be used by the member fleets and players participating within the United Fleets Coalition, including independent players.

UFC PUBLIC CHANNELS
--
  • Transporter Room (Non-Social Zone) : This is a non-social zone which simply serves as a place those arriving beam in before moving to their channel of choice.
    --
  • "Ten Forward" (Social Zone) : This channel serves as the standard relaxed social zone where players from all fleets can gather and socialize.
    --
  • "The Agonizer Booth" (No-Holds Social) : This is a secondary social area that allows for more adult conversation and jokes ... conversations might be slightly less guarded and sometimes more entertaining.
    --
  • "The Promande" (RP Zone) : This channel serves as an RP zone where when you are in this channel, you represent the first person of your specific character.
    --
  • Special Task Force 1 (Teaming) : This is a channel is a multi-fleet teaming channel where players who have chosen to form a team can go to coordinate their mission runs without fear of overlapping conversations.
    --
  • Special Task Force 2 (Teaming) : This is a channel is a multi-fleet teaming channel where players who have chosen to form a team can go to coordinate their mission runs without fear of overlapping conversations.
    --
  • Special Task Force 3 (Teaming) : This is a channel is a multi-fleet teaming channel where players who have chosen to form a team can go to coordinate their mission runs without fear of overlapping conversations.
    --
  • Special Task Force 4 (Teaming) : This is a channel is a multi-fleet teaming channel where players who have chosen to form a team can go to coordinate their mission runs without fear of overlapping conversations.
    --
  • Special Task Force 5 (Teaming) : This is a channel is a multi-fleet teaming channel where players who have chosen to form a team can go to coordinate their mission runs without fear of overlapping conversations.
    --
  • Public Conference Room 1 : This is a public / private conference room where players can go for a private conversation.
    --
  • Public Conference Room 2 : This is a public / private conference room where players can go for a private conversation.
    --
  • UFC Roundtable Chambers: This channel is a password protected channel that is for use by the Fleet Representatives of the various member fleets when conduction business.

Member fleets also gain access to a suite of rooms of their own.

Please note that although we set up an initial baseline set of channels for fleets that are not password protected, member fleets *can* request the following.

  • Member fleets can appoint channel admins to help maintain their fleet's Teamspeak channels.
    --
  • Member fleets can have their block of channels password protected so they are only used by members of their fleet and those they invite.
    --
  • Requests can be made for fleet channels to be customized whereby a unique array of channel rooms are created to meet the specific needs of that fleet.

Rules of Conduction for use of Teamspeak is to ALWAYS remain civil and respectful to the other players also using this service. Likewise, trolling is not allowed.

If you are looking for teaming partners, players are also welcome to go into the public social zones and ask if there are any others who wish to join up and run missions together before moving into one of the STF rooms.

Last night, we scheduled a run at Defera Ground Invasion and ... well ... the word [SIZE="4"]EPIC [/SIZE]comes to mind.

We had a hell-of-a-team running these missions with us working our way from one end of the invasion zone to the other.

And I can also say that quite a few assimilated scorpion Gorn were crushed under the heals of our boots.

Updated the Teamspeak server information.

As a personal note ... Its use has been growing with more people beginning to use it each day.
