If you are seeking a fun and casual fleet to join, then please consider the Red Squad Rangers. We are a small fleet gladly accepting new recruits who are looking for a laid back fleet to join.
We are part of a fleet alliance and have a shared Teamspeak and in game chat channels with those fleets so members can cross communicate. Our fleet is currently upgrading our starbase holdings to Tier 3. The base itself and comm array are complete, the fabricator is on cool down, with the shipyard next followed by the gate. The embassy, at the moment, is on the back burner due to lack of resources. However that could easily change with additional members in the fleet.
Contact, website, and additional info can be found on the first post of this thread.
