Since I should be hitting Admiral by tomorrow, I figured I'd start looking for fleets.
I'd prefer a casual fleet that operates in the Central Time Zone or somewhere around there with a great community and lots of things to do. I'd prefer not to have to talk on Vent all the time - I would if I could, but I don't have a headset compatible with my computer at the moment nor the funds to buy one. I've had my eye on a few Fleets since I started STO but I figured making a thread and getting feedback is just as good.
I live in the United States and would prefer not to be asked to join Fleets that operate primarily out of other countries. No offense to you guys, I think it's great to have localized Fleets, but I'd rather not be the only American in a group of Australians, if you know what I mean.
A Star Trek Online group dedicated to the game and it's contents, joining together for fleet actions, pvp, and general play. Most of us are pretty big Sci-Fi fans and have played many MMOs in the past.
We are mostly an EST group at the moment, but would like to expand more to include most of the US.
What we do:
We destroy Klingons. We resist the Borg.
You know, stuff like that.
What is our organization:
We have a full fleet roster to fill, including Intelligence and PvP squadrons to name a few. We are active in all types of gameplay, including crafting and PvE. Access to squadron pages and member threads are unlocked once you are approved for membership.
We also follow a rank code. All new members graduate from Brighthawk Academy as a full Ensign, and promotions are easily obtained as long as you are active in game and occasionally on the forums. Vent is also required.
How do I join?
Registered forum users have access to the Brighthawk Academy. Take a look there for more info!
How serious are we?
We enjoy the game and like to have fun. We are not a strict group of players at all. If you cannot make a Fleet Activity, we will understand with good reason that real life comes first. We are a group that likes to add a little RP into our game, and I've always found a guild/fleet with a little RP can make grouping with strangers a lot more fun. Nothing drastic, obviously, but enjoyable stuff.
I would like to formally invite you to become an Officer in the United Britannian Fleet (UBF). As an Officer in the UBF you will gain many new friends and a support base to help you in game and out of game. Also, if you pick the Command role, you can go up the Chain of Command (CoC) and lead your Officers in a Division in the UBF. The UBF is in need of great people to join in one of the Divisions in the fleet. We have Division which include Judge advocate general (JAG), Fleet Personnel with Fleet Academy, Fleet Intelligence Agency (FIA), Fleet Exploration Diplomacy, Fleet Science Medical, Fleet Engineering Corps, Fleet Logistics, and Britannian Armada, with Military Assault Command Operations (MACO's). All of the Admirals are looking for people to take the posts in the Division.
If you choose the UBF as your fleet to join, you will have all the benefits from the other officers in the fleet. This includes new ships/repairs, technology for your ship and character, combat/ backup from Britannian Armada is space and MACO’s on the ground and you will have access to the Fleet Bank when you need it for RL issues. The UBF will have your back in all areas you will need.
More information about the UBF, we are a laid back organized fleet that are: PVE, PVP, FPS, Strats, and RPG that loves Gaming and Star Trek. The UBF has over 80+ Officer in all ages from 15 to 50 from all over the world. That includes USA, UK, Canada and Mexico. The UBF is a very mature fleet so; we can handle any age and any location you are at. The UBF is a part of the League of Fleet (LoF), which is an organization with Fleets helping Fleet.
I am Fleet Admiral Merlin Cole, Commanding Officer and the Founder of the United Britannian Fleet (UBF). I have been a gamer for over 11 years and a Star Trek Fan for over 15 years and have been waiting for this game or this type of game for over 8 years. So, I know how to lead and have fun, I am respected by all of my Officers and I am respectful to everyone of my Officers from the top to the bottom. I do not have a military back ground but I do have a Military Advisor(s) in the UBF. That gives me advisee on stuff I do not know.
When you are ready to take part in a great Fleet, look into and join the United Britannan Fleet (UBF). Here is information on how to contact us!!!!
The Sentinels are a multi-gaming community with an average age of 30+ and no drama!
We have an active membership in several different MMO's and are building our Starfleet Division here in STO. At this point we have about 30 active members in our fleet and are steadily growing. The overall guild has over 500 active members and we also maintain our own guild Ventrilo server. We look for quality over quantity, and have a very thorough application process. Its our goal to make sure you are as happy with us as we will be with you.
Our retention rate is very high as we promote more of a gaming community then a single game guild.
STARFLEET DEFENDERS is a mature, casual fleet for adult STO players. We are a fun fleet who is more concerned about playing together and enjoying each others company than getting to the highest level. No matter what we do, we will enjoy doing it together. I believe that each member is unique and has something to add to the overall personality of the fleet.
Whether you will be a casual gamer who only plays twice a week or an avid gamer who never logs off doesn't matter to us. STARFLEET DEFENDERS is looking for members with personality!!
We have members from all over the world so no matter what time you like to log on and play there is usually someone on!!
If you're looking for a fleet, come check out The Fifth Fleet.
We're looking for all types of players.

Hi all -
Wow, Zodack there are tons of fleets out there that want you to join them. I haven't looked into them, so I can't really say if they are good fleets or not. Nor how active they are with people joining up.
I'm a member of the Legend of a New Republic (LNR) Fleet, registered as LNR in STO. I joined their Web site while in beta and have been with them through Head Start and continuning. It's been really nice to find such a group. In fact, we've surpassed the 250 limit and have had to make an Alt Fleet. While I don't think anybody's reached Admiral yet (only because I haven't been on in two days other than for a few minutes) I do know someone was level 45. I'm currently an LC6 and that Rear Admiral helped me with my Hippocrates mission.
With such a large fleet, we have people online all hours of the day. I'm PST, while Rich is EST but works the 3rd shift and is currently playing during that time. Yes, about 15-20 of us actively use our Vent server (for up to 50 people), but with such a large number of people in our fleet, not everybody is on Vent.
I hope that you find a Fleet that fits your needs. LNR is pretty full but with the hope that STO will uncap fleet size, or keep an Alt Fleet, we'll be more than happy to add you to the group. Check us out at our Web site - www.GoLegend.com and let us know what you think (LNR has groups in SW Galaxies, City of Heores, Lord of the Rings and more).
