History of the 121st:
Task Force 121 was created in 2267 as a response to building tensions between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. The Task Force was charged with black ops espionage missions behind Klingon lines. Following the outbreak of the Federation-Klingon War, the 121st engaged in deep strike missions on Klingon shipyards and other military facilities. At the end of the war, the task force was deactivated until the outbreak of the Federation-Cardassian war in 2347. Task Force 121 again was sent on sorties deep behind enemy lines and continues aggressive operations until 2366 when Task Force 121 was recalled to join the Battle Group at Wolf 359 preparing to engage the Borg. During the battle, Task Force 121 was completely annihilated. The records show, however that no ship of the 121st was assimilated, the crews having managed to destroy their ships when boarded. A few years later in 2373, the 121st was reconstituted with 3 starships to fight back against the Dominion. Reaching Cardassia long before the bulk of Federation forces, the Task Force used guerilla tactics to pave the way for a Federation advance on Cardassia.
Current Status of the 121st:
Task Force 121 is currently based at Deep Space 9 under the command of Rear Admiral Vreese Sai'nu, where it is undergoing replenishment and training operations in preparation for its next deployment. Although its orders are highly classified, it is rumored that the 121st will be deployed to Gamma Orionis to seek revenge on the Borg for their unit's humiliation at Wolf 359.
Task Force 121 is a dedicated RP fleet, in that we expect all members to actively participate in Roleplay, however we also do daily PvP and PvE episodes as well as STF's on weekends. Fleet events are held weekly on Sunday nights CST. Most fleet members are in US time zones, however we are willing to accomodate others as much as possible.
How to Join:
*Captains - Captains of a starship can seek reassignment orders to Task Force 121 through Starfleet Command
*Crew - Lower ranking Starfleet officers can seek reassignment to a vessel in the 121st. Only certain positions available, see a recruiting officer for more.
1.) This is not of high concern to me, but I am just curious as to how many members you currently hold?
(I have no problem joining a fleet/guild that is few in numbers, and the only reason I ask is because I saw 4 members on your GP roster.)
2.) I have no idea how fleets work, so I was a little confused about the following, and was hoping you could clarify what it means:
"*Crew - Lower ranking Starfleet officers can seek reassignment to a vessel in the 121st. Only certain positions available, see a recruiting officer for more."
3.) I assume there is some sort of fleet chat. Is this chat IC, or OOC? In other MMOs I play, I have been in guilds using either. I tend to prefer them to be IC, and have a separate OOC channel, but I'm not too picky in that regard.
Your fleet seems like a pretty good fit for me, so I am interested in joining.
