The 42nd is a Fleet that will be aimed at creating a friendly environment for gamer to come together and enjoy advancing through the ranks of Starfleet. Currently there is no obligation put on the shoulders of members to participate in fleet activity but plans are to hold scheduled events for members if they so choose.
We currently have a website up at www.42ndfleet.com which we encourage you to check out our forums. Also any questions about joining can be sent to me raith@garyx or Raven@raven1234 within STO.
Feel free to signup on our forums and send in an application for membership there.
But as I said before the main goal is to create a friendly environment where people can meet and enjoy playing STO together.
