# 1 Help! Looking for a home!

Hello everyone,

For the last few days, I've been lurking these forums in search of a fleet to join. Unfortunately, what these threads don't tell me is how active each fleet's membership is, and when I'm on, I have a hard time finding anyone who can answer my questions.

So, I bring these questions to you:

I'm looking for a Federation Fleet:
- that has active members; I can't stand to be the only one logged on...
- with a medium-size membership, not so big that it's impossible to keep track of everyone, not so small that it's impossible to find a group to start a 5-man
- that has multiple interests: PVE, PVP, occasional contests, etc., maybe even a Klingon branch
- that is mostly casual, and has mature membership, i.e. people who play for the fun and challenge, not for loot or bragging rights
- that welcomes alts

About me:
- RA5 Engineer, player since launch
- I help when I can, but want to be with people who do the same (I have no problem helping new players, but hope to find some people who can show me the ropes occasionally)
- I like to be on almost every night, at least for a couple hours, but there are times when I won't be able to log on at all
- I can't RP to save my life
- I'm a capable player, but hardly a pro, and prefer to be with people who share these priorities
- I'm happy to help with administrative stuff, such as organizing events or contests, when I can

If anyone could point me in a good direction, I'll be in your debt.

Thanks!

Hi there

The fleet i run is active and international so there is pretty much someone online 24 hours a day with more members at peak hours in Europe and US

The fleet is about medium sized i would say with around 150 members not counting alts etc... and you will see a core of 25 members that plays pretty much everyday.

We team up to do dailies, PvP, Missions, infected, cure, khitomer everyday both on fed and kling side

We play both PvE, PvP, (and even have some RP stories on our forums) and are on both fed and kling sides with a full fleet bank spread on both sides.

Our play style is relaxed, fun, and we have only mature helpful members, we have rules against bad conduct and we are not afraid to kick someone that does not live up to our common sense standards (greed, badmouthing, etc are not allowed).

All Alts are welcome, they will be given the rank of your highest ranked toon in the fleet.


Feel free to check us out

Heya,

The 12th fleet might be just your think, below I'll answer all your questions.
For more info click on this link: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=148196

I'm looking for a Federation Fleet:
that has active members; I can't stand to be the only one logged on...
- We have 180+ active members in our fleet.

with a medium-size membership, not so big that it's impossible to keep track of everyone, not so small that it's impossible to find a group to start a 5-man
- Well we're not exactly small or medium sized, but it's at least easy to start up groups. I have to admit that I don't know every single member myself, but I do find that I enjoy the company of all my fleet mates. I've made a lot of new friends already and I'm seriously considering to look some of them up in the UK coming summer and have a local fleet meeting there!

that has multiple interests: PVE, PVP, occasional contests, etc., maybe even a Klingon branch
- We have interests in single/ group pve, pvp, held several contests already, want to make fleet videos, have an active rp community and many other things.

that is mostly casual, and has mature membership, i.e. people who play for the fun and challenge, not for loot or bragging rights
- As you can read in the link above we value real life over game life, the 12th fleet is a friendly and casual fleet.

that welcomes alts
- We have a federation and klingon alt fleet and we use an interfleet channel so we can keep in contact easily with everybody!


I really think that we're the kind of fleet you're looking for, apart from that you want a medium sized fleet. We're big enough to get everything done, but not so small that you're likely to know every single member in it. I don't really think that's possible anyways due our spread over different time zones. We do have members online pretty much 24/7 though.

I hope you'll give us a try.

Thanks for the response, guys!

I'll be checking out your websites and, more importantly (for me at least), looking for who's on when I log in tonight.

Good morning. I hope you will take a moment and consider the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet. Ours is a small but great (and growing) fleet. We are easy going, dedicated and friendly. We all come from different backgrounds and have different ways of doing things, but thatís part of what makes us great.

Anyone in our fleet is happy to help others when needed, in almost any aspect of the game. We have a fleet Ventrilo server that we use for voice chat not just in-game but also to hang out as well and get to know each other better (not required, just available). Many of us are located on the East Coast (USA) but we do have members scattered across the globe.

Although I say our fleet is dedicated, we also realize that everyone has lives as well, so therefore when you need to take the time, you don't need to be concerned about losing your position within the fleet due to RL. We do not discriminate against such things because we understand ourselves that sometimes real life issues and problems can take time to resolve, and some time is needed to sort things out.

So please think about joining us and move with us into 2409 armed with the best Intel, the most specific and targeted body of knowledge about STO, and a group of Fleet-mates who will be there with you in the crunch.


Live Long and Prosper!

If you or anyone else wants additional information on the [VKF] donít hesitate to contact me or any of our members.
