Hey, I wanted to bounce an idea off you guys. What about a fleet that, in addition to pursuing its own interests, would also hire out fleet members as "mercenaries" to other fleets for a couple of energy credits, who might be missing a person or two for a raid or so. The contracts could of course be negotiated with the interested parties and the fleet could have a broad variety of ranks to accommodate smaller and bigger fleets.
Call it the Legionnaire's Fleet? What daya guys say?
Don't let the existence of the Fleet Alliance dampen your ambition to start a Mercenary fleet.
Your fleet would be welcomed in the Alliance so long as you didn't charge your fellow Alliance fleets and members for your services.
