I'm happy to announce that I have found a home. Thank you all so very much for answering my post, it's a testament to the dedication and devotion that we all have to Star Trek. I honestly didn't expect to have this kind of response and frankly I'm rather blown away as it were.
If you'd like, you're free to hit me up in-game so maybe we could hang out or rough up some badguys: kira@opaserv
I think you'd enjoy our fleet, we are faily casual and laid back without any silly drama you get in other fleets. My two daughters, 14 and 17 play too and they both enjoy it. We are about 200 active members with another 200 not so active, approaching T4 Starbase.
I won't type a long post here, but consider us as a possible solution. The Timelords Fleet is a smaller (approx. 25-30 members altogether, at least 10-15 active daily) Fleet spanned across the globe, from Eastern Europe till the West Coast of the US.
Fleet Site/Forum: CHECK (although we aren't webdesigners)
Leadership interested in everything EXCEPT numbers : CHECK
I am Rear Admiral Jureth and I'd like to take a moment and introduce you to Lotus Fleet.
Lotus Fleet is a small to medium size fleet with members spanning the globe that have come together as not just an in game fleet but a Star Trek community. We have a dedicated leadership headed up by Fleet Admiral Jamie and his XO Admiral Kheren along with myself and two other division commanders. Our motto has always been quality over quantity when it comes to members, and the person behind the keyboard matters more to us than the pixels on the screen.
We have a newly launched website at www.lotusfleet.org, and while we are not a new Fleet by any means we were forced to leave our old site about a year ago and it took some time to get the new one up and running.
It sounds like your Trek lore might be on par with the best of us, but even if it is our comprehensive Academy can help you brush up and maybe even teach you a thing or two
We have a dedicated events department that will soon be scheduling events as the new year starts to include fleet marks events, STFs, daily runs, and whatever else our members might come up with!
Most of all we all want to enjoy Star Trek and have fun while doing it. Thank you for your time and I hope you'll check out Lotus Fleet!
Hi Jenny! I'm a member of a mirror universe themed fleet called Dark Mirror. We're a small, close knit group around and in our 30's that honestly feels more like family rather than just simply fleet mates. I have to say, this is the best group of ppl I've met in this game. We cut up and laugh all the time on teamspeak3 together. They are not about trying to become a mega fleet either... Everyone knows everyone and all decisions made are voted on by all.
If I need fleet marks, they'll buy whats needed and give them to me for me to donate! If I need Romulan marks (b/c I didn't pay attention that a certain project cost 500 of them) they'll help me grind to get them. I've been playing for around 6 months now and have learned so much thx to these guys. They've helped me with my build, taught me things I had no idea were in the game and just simply made the whole experience of playing so much more fun.
If you're interested feel free to check us out at www.darkmirror.guildlaunch.com I wish you luck in finding a fleet home soon that matches just what you're looking for. I know 1st hand how much more fun this game can be once you do!
Were a 18+ fleet, mostly based in UK with a few USA members.
Average fleet age is 25-35. Most of the regular members have partners/families so I don't think u need to worry about the creep factor,as I think were a reasonably mature gaming group when it comes to relationships.
Were about a half dozen at peek times and were getting on very well, bit of fleet chat, some comms members are working on Teamspeak and Vent for fleet team events.
I think small is beautiful and am trying to keep the fleet a modest size so that the social interaction isn't lost as I don't know about you but I wouldn't have time to build meangingful social groups encompassing 25 or 200!
We don't have a website but is something a co-founder has thought might be worth looking into.
It would be easier to char discuss in game so message me @HighAdmiralAndy.
Hey Jen! I'm one of the Executives from Lag Industries. We run a fleet based on a company. You will live in cubicles too small for your creativity or physical/psychological health. You won't be paid, but you are allowed to steal as many office supplies as you can carry. No, I'm not massively happy to see you, it's a stapler I've got stashed away... We have several hundred members, a fair chuck are pretty active too, people don't get lost in the mix and have every chance of making a name for themselves and rising up. There's always room and time for everyone. Our TS is populated not only with our own members but people from other fleets that have a habit of stopping over, specially on Drunken Fridays.
1. A website - Yep, we have a pretty sexy website which can be found -->here<-- We're always on the lookout for some fresh blood to help us run it as our current web wizard is rather inactive, and rubbing my face against the keyboard has less effect then I'd like...
2. A leadership who are not interested in just numbers - We don't promote people on what they give to the fleet, or how good they are. We recruit based on how social/helpful they are, how much they use our website & TS3, how much they take part in our contests (we like giving away expensive sh*t!)
3. Friends - Any fleet that doesn't offer this isn't really worth a look in.
We have Dominatrix Monday, Pizza Tuesday, Leopard-Print Budgie Smuggler Wednesday, Bring-Your-Bear-to-Work Thursday but sadly have no special Fridays. We're usually either running about town with nets and blow tubes or answering bear-related legal claims.
We're an increasing sight in the PVP queues, we run plenty of PVE, we're active, avid starbase builders and laid back.
Please feel free to nose around the site, TS, or PM me
Happy New Year!

Despite the fact that I've had an STO account since 07' (according to my account page), I've had a hell of a time finding "friends" who actually want to play with me without trying to ask me out or otherwise just being creepers. I'm hoping that this post will change that.
best line everrr! almost fell out of my seat. anyway, best of luck finding a new home for your toon.
We are the Elite Defense Starfleet/ Elite Defense Stovokor. We are a laid back fleet that lets our members pursue their interest, be it PvE or PvP, but we also help each other fulfill out objectives. We are a mixed european/american fleet and we like to play federation as well as klingon. Currently, we have a t4 federation starbase, t3 klingon starbase and t1 embassy (fed as well as kdf).
