A brief excerpt from the 12th Fleet's Site about the Medical Division:
"The 12th Fleet's Medical division is the Role playing division in our fleet. If you love to write biographies, or captain logs about your characters, join forum role plays, or team up for role play adventures in-game, then we are the division for you. We may be named Medical, but don't let this description confuse you; we role play all sorts of careers, from heroic MACO's to quirky Engineers, from nervous Scientists to stoic captains, we cover it all.
Originally we had our roots in being the healers of the fleet and though we haven't forgotten our origins, we do far more than only role play doctors. We welcome tactical officers, engineers and scientists just as much in our midst as doctors and nurses. We are role players first and our career of choice second.
We regularly organize role play events and also help you set up your own events through advice, tips, tricks and guides. We facilitate both solo role playing, as well as group role playing and we have a very active and fun community in our division to team up with. If your main interest in Star Trek Online is Role playing then please select Medical as your primary interest!"
Today's spotlight excerpt from our website is on the MACO Division of the 12th Fleet:
Here in the 12th Fleet, we MACOs hold the special privilege and responsibility to keep ourselves and fleet mates up to date on all things with boots on deck or ground, with a special focus on the Strategic Task Forces (STFs) and Ground Combat (PvP and PvE).
From PVP to Otha, from Infected to Terradome it is our duty to eradicate our foes, rescue our allies and instill respect in everyone else. Because of the nature of the STFs, MACOs run in virtually every aspect of STO. Don?t let this scare you off, we will help you out in the areas that you need help in, then offer you an ale to wash it down with.
Here's what we do best:
1. STFs: MACO considers ourselves to be the ?STF experts? of the fleet. We develop the tactics that are taught and used in beating STFs with consistent repeatable strategies, and pride ourselves on being able and ready to assist out fellow fleet mates meet their STF goals.
2. Ground Combat: Members of the 12th fleet MACO are often sighted at Otha (the ground PvE/Open PvP mission) or on Fleet Actions. It?s a great place to hone ground PvP skills for PvP matches and for the ground portions of STO?s missions.
3. Training: We develop training sessions in the Foundry that seek to improve your ability to ?think outside the box? when you get into Ground PvP, PvE, and STFs. MACOs just don?t run and shoot; we use strategy and tactics to get the job done efficiently and effectively.
We are a band of brothers, a crazy family to have fun with, and some great friends with whom to socialize. If this sounds good to you, then go ahead and check the box for MACO, grab an ale and take a seat around our campfire. You?ll be glad you did. Remember MACO?s goal is to have fun, food and camaraderie as we light up our foes.
Today's focus... The 12th Fleet Engineering Division
"So what exactly is engineering, and more to the point do I have to play an engineer in order to join this division....
Oh dear, I am confused and my head hurts!.
Well wonder no more, first of all even if you are a Star Trek veteran or you have never even seen the show, but just fancied the game the divisions will no doubt be a little confusing. Basically all they are, are sections of the fleet to organise and pop people together who share a common interest. Be it STF?s, PVP or Role Playing. This does not mean that you can?t ever do the other activates or even hang out in the forums. We actively encourage as much inter fleet interaction as possible. It just means that your home divisions caters to your very favourite activity.
So that said, what do we cater to in engineering?. We cater to casual Player versus Enviroment, we are the laid back arm of the fleet and will pretty much take any class for this purpose. There is no requirement to stay in Engineering above the global activity standards. However if anyone is particularly active on the games or forums we will be rewarding with promotions and later with our specially designed set of medals for many different occasions.
So if you just want to play the game, and not really worry about anything much, then Engineering is for you!. In the future we will be running events both fun and irreverent as well some with a more organised intent. However regardless of this we will never be elite here. Generally everyone acts in the division like they are an engineer, however this is nothing to do with who they play in game, this is merely a role play hook based on the name of our division, and because it?s fun.
So if you want casual and relaxed, play the game, make friends and hang out...maybe engineering is for you?"
Do you have the heart of a Klingon? The 12th Honor Guard is a Division of the 12th Fleet that is dedicated to protecting the interests of the Klingon Empire and defending it from those who would see it crumble! Supported by Drex, son of Martok, the Honor Guard seeks to challenge the resolve of any who would oppose the Empire and see vast glory brought to the 12th and her allies. Through battle, song, and blood wine it falls on our shoulders to write the next chapter in the great saga of the Klingon Empire!
Unlike many Divisions within the 12th Fleet as a whole, The KDF Division does not (currently) specialize in any one particular aspect of the game such as PvP, Role-play, Starbase Defense Missions, or STFs.
Instead, the focus for the KDF Division is to promote KDF Faction-play in any of its myriad forms. This means that members of the Division have elected to concentrate on the KDF as a primary interest while continuing to actively maintain a presence within the 12th-fleet community.
Through this approach, the ideal is that the KDF Division provides an additional level of support for all 12th-fleet members, by allowing members with a declared interest in KDF Faction-play to develop knowledge and expertise that can be shared with the rest of the Fleet.
