I've been soloing for the past week and I think it's time to find a fleet. I've had too many PvPs and Enemy Contacts where people don't even chat with each other. So allow me to introduce myself and tell you want I'm looking for.
I'm current Lt9 and will probably hit LtC by the end of the weekend (depending on server uptime ). I'm still on the fence between driving a tank cruiser or piloting a DPS escort (and those verb choices were on purpose!).
IRL I'm 30, I'm in Canada and I'm in EST although I work evenings and will probably be online most likely between 1-3am on weekdays so I might be a better fit with a PST-centric group. Or fellow EST night owls. I'm looking for a mature group and that's not a code word. I'm looking to avoid 1337 pwners and tweens at heart who have limited vocabularies, not find sexytimez, thank you very much.
I'm not that focused on end-game. I'm not a newb but don't have a lot of MMORPG experience beyond getting to lvl 30-something in WoW. I'm not looking for an RP group because 1) I don't think I could keep it up and 2) if your character sheet says your a ninja supersoldier from the future why are you having such a hard time finding Sulu?
I'm not looking forward to wearing a headset and would rather have time to collect my thoughts and expose my poor spelling in chat. I'm also quite keen on the uniforms I made for my toons so I hope you don't have a strict dress code!
I'm looking for a group of people to play through episodic content with and get some semi-organized PvP in. If you think your fleet fits my unreasonable demands please let me know!
Firstly, they are not unreasonable demands, They give me more info to personalise a reponse around
Now, you may notice from my location that we are not exactly EST. However, 1-3am is going to be 6am to 8am... quite early but i think some of our members play a bit around then (we do global recruitment, but the majority are UK/EU Players).
I myself prefer to avoid the branding of "mature" on our group since almost everyone has a different idea of what it represents. Our group looks past the age, instead looking at the personality. So this does mean we get some younger members, but they meet our standards.
What we do look for are friendly, civil and fun members, so we avoid the
"1337 pwners and tweens at heart who have limited vocabularies"
There is some light RP in the group, but it's not forced on players. If your able to allow those players who might RP from time to time to do so without feeling a need to have a go at them then we could be a potential group for you.
Hmmm.... reading that last paragraph through myself sounds a bit "harsh"... might just be the way I read it but sorry if it sounds like it's having a go. we are fun based, but we do so without preventing others from having fun the way they want to.
We don't use voice comms, and the fleet uniforms will grow exponentially over time (I like making uniforms) but they won't be forced onto players. When a few of our members are on at once though, fleet chat can move quite fast (a few of us are fast typers) so you might find yourself responding to a topic that was discussed all of 10 seconds ago before moving onto something else (can lead to some funny looking chat logs too )
We have a few frequent teamers (PvE and PvP), don't mind helping others out, and tend to be home to a few alt-a-holics (I myself having 3 Federation Characters already).
Well, I hope you find a fleet that is right for you.
My name is Mike Lucas or Mlucas in game I am the one of the officers of STO and founder of BKB a online gaming community of over 2000 active members. You may wish to give our group a look. We are made up of a group of mature gamers, yet of all ages we are above all a “family style" group, without any specific time requirements. WE have a code of conduct that is simply but enforced.
Just a glimpse of some of the things we can offer:

3. Fun, family friendly atmosphere.
4. NO DRAMA! We have a mature, drama free member base, with strong leadership.
5. Good size fleet, and growing daily
6. Members in several countries (U.S., UK, NZ), so we are on around the clock many who took out 1 year and lift time memberships so we plan on being here for a while.
7. With a 12 year history together in various MMO's, we know what it takes to make a guild grow and remain not only strong but more importantly enjoyable
8. A nice mix of folks who are hard core and causal.
9. Close knit group of folks who are willing to go the extra mile to help you out, and make you feel at home.
