# 11 Vulcan Exploration Fleet
08-18-2010, 02:33 PM
Vulcan Exploration Fleet

Greetings. This new Fleet is looking for Vulcans and Romulans who wish to Explore the unknown regions of space. To collect data and chart new star systems. To seek out new civilizations and conquer hostile worlds and destroy enemies of the Federation. To our Romulans brothers. You may join us as well, for our blood is the same. This Fleet Ambitions will be aggressive in nature, for we are at war! In the near future, we will, in time go on a year mission to push STO new Exploration System comeing by years end or early 2011 to its limit! I do qoute:

"ZAM: In the same interview, you admitted a little frustration regarding STO's initial representation of exploration; do you have any plans to build a new mechanic around this aspect of the game, similar to the way Season 2's "Federation Diplomatic Corps" relates to non-combat gameplay?

Stahl: When we all envisioned exploration, the common visual was that you'd be able to point your ship in a direction and keep on going to see what's out there. While we had this vision as well, we failed to deliver on it at launch. What you ended up with is a small box where you fly around and go through random doors.

The team is committed to addressing this. We really want to see exploration be about going into deep space and seeing how far you can get from home before the crew gets homesick. You can look for us to start delivering a new vision for exploration in Season 3."


As STO evolves we will evolve. When the time come, we wlil build a Space Station as our numbers grow...
{VEF} will seek out Alliances for those Fleets who wish to trade and share resources and Energy Credits. Also, Fleets may join us on this journey into Deep Space when the time comes.

If you wish to join this Exploration Fleet or form an Alliance, please post here or contact us on our new website:

{VEF} Ranking will be simple and based on Federation system. Our Fleet engagements is as follows:

The Fleet main goal will be Exploration. Exploring different Sector Space will be the main goal. When STO launches its new exploring system later on, this Fleet will dedicate 1year into exploring this new system. We will not be returning to base until after the year is up! We, as a Fleet will make sure we have enough resources in our inventories to keep us alive for this journey.


We will be encouraging the Following as well:

PvP

PvE

FvF

Rp

Tradeing of resources with other Fleets will be done as well. We will be opening up channels with different Fleets to trade resources and bridge officers in the near future.

Due to recent events with Romulan home world and lack of Vulcans and Romulans ingame, {VEF} is, for the time being opening up its doors to Alien Species. We will look over your charecter traits and see if you fit within our ranks.

Please state your profession and Rank in STO. Thank you.

2138, the Romulans killed most of the Coradori after a 5 year war. The Coradori only had a population of 190 million, compared to 743 million Romulans. The Coradori surrended and was made a slave labor subclass of Romulan society. The Romulan Star Empire is born in the aftermath of this victory.

11 years later, the Vulcan scout ship T'sannu began a survey mission into the eastern galactic frontier beyond the Qualor and Tarod Systems. According to the mission plan, the crew was to survey the Reticuli (Tranome Sar) System, and the Alpha Mensae (Sotarek) System. The total mission duration was expected to be approximately 42 days. It is not known whether the Vulcans on board realized just who they had found. The Romulans, on the other hand, knew exactly who these intruders were, and a panicked patrol ship commander destroyed the T'sannu and collected the debris for analysis. The Romulan reaction to this incident -- people start to wonder what the Vulcans were doing there, the government and military brew this into a public panic.

2153, First Contact with Humans. A pair of Romulan ships investigated. They feared these humans were powerful, a major threat. A fleet of warships is ordered to be built.

From 2156 to 2160, the Romulans fought a war with Earth. See Romulan-Earth war. After a brief but very bloody war for both sides, the Romulans suffered a humiliating defeat at the Battle of Cheron, they sued for peace via subspace radio. Heads rolled after the end of the war.

The Romulan government was completely humiliated, had to completely rebuild-- became much more war-like society, suspicious of any new alien contact.

Romulans had contacts with the Klingon empire but when they became allies with the Federation they are treated as the Federation. The Romulan Empire gave the cloaking device which was traded for one of their ship designs, superior armor and improved warp engine technology. Nowadays there are still conflicts with the Federation and the Klingon Empire.

No human ever saw a Romulan face-to-face until 2268 and lived to tell about it. The Romulans, however, regarded the Klingons as too barbaric to be trusted, and this alliance collapsed in a racial acrimony which endures to this day. In 2311 the Romulans entered a phase of extreme isolationism --possibly due to internal civil war-- from which they emerged in 2366. The Romulan Star Empire was an important part of the alliance that ended the Dominion War; unfortunately, wartime alliances tended to break down at the end of that conflict, and the Federation relationship with the Romulans has been in a state of flux until the war against the Tholians and the Grey.

On the Romulan homeworlds groups formed who support reunification with Vulcan.

Until recently, the Romulan Star Empire was slightly less advanced than the Federation technologically. However, their new Khellian class Warbird has more than closed the gap. Khellians are armed with plasma and graviton weapons, mount a phase cloaking device, and feature an artificial singularity-powered warp propulsion system. The movements of these highly advanced vessels are nearly impossible to track, and Starfleet still has not obtained a close sensor scan of one. In addition, it is not known just how many of these vessels exist. The combination is extremely worrisome, to say the least. Romulan cloaking technology has always given them a certain edge. Romulans also excel in war "by other means." They place a high premium on espionage and the sneak attack. They have been known to send agents into areas to engage in the destabilization of governments.

Their newest starship designs, the Warbird vessels are impressive in its size and power and has become the mainstay of their fleet. Larger than Starfleet's Sovereign class and equipped with an improved cloaking device system, the warbird is the single greatest vessel threat to Federation security. While this massive ship employs a variety of large and small disruptor weaponry rather than phaser banks, these weapons are equally destructive due to a modification in their resonant frequency amplification process. The vessel is also, of course, equipped with multiple photon torpedo tubes; second most powerful disruptor cannon in the Beta Quadrant and finally: the devastating plasma torpedo; a Romulan innovation.

A year before the Dominion war ended, the Romulans began to allocate an enormous percentage of Imperial resources and funds to the construction of modern starships and upgraded facilities with which to service them. In the span of 11 years, they are able to assemble over 144 vessels. These are put together in the vast orbital shipyards the Romulans built over the span of 60 years, and are never launched all at once, but instead carefully concealed from prying eyes with stolid determination and clever misdirection. By 2385, the Romulan fleet is over 715 capital starships strong plus an unknown number advanced battlecruisers who's location, tactical strengths and abilities is almost completely secret as well.

In Early 2386, the Talarians launched a general assault on the Romulan colonial strong point of Nova Aegyptus, initiating a major naval engagement with the fleet stationed there. In the midst of the battle, the Talarian forces found themselves outflanked by a large, hitherto unseen Romulan armada built secretly supposedly during the last months of the Dominion War, but in reality over a decade in preparation as well as efficiently redeployed vessels of the already active Romulan fleet. Executing a series of brilliant maneuvers, General Aerus completely shattered the Talarian line of battle and inflicted a devastating defeat on their forces. This may be the single most distubing development the Federation has heard of after nearly a decade of peace. Despite brokering a form of detente with many other races, the Romulan Empire remains a perpetual foe of the Federation.

Romulans do have a first and last name (unlike Vulcans). Romulans also have two middle names. Most first names are no more than three syllables. It is perfectly good etiquette to address a superior or a comrade by their main (first) name. The two names following these were given to you by parents. These names are usually only used in extremely formal situations where whoever you are addressing is so important that his/her full name must be used. Last name is the family name. A family name is always preceded by t' or tr'. This name is only used when identifying someone or when addressing someone of importance. Some Romulans put Cha' in front of their last names, rather than t' or tr'. Cha' is a more ancient version, so it is much less common than t' or tr', e.g.: Lo T'lenar.

The Tal Shiar (shiar'rim)
Shiar'rim means Soft Rain, it used to be noble Crown Corporation, Shiar'rim evolved after its war with Earth, but it is the elite Romulan imperial intelligence service. The Tal Shiar is a secret, often brutal, sometimes extra governmental agency that enforced loyalty throughout the Romulan citizenry and military. Tal Shiar agents carry broad discretionary powers and are able to overrule field military commanders with little fear of reprisal from government authorities. Some elements of Romulan society, including members of the military, feels the Tal Shiar's tactics to be unnecessarily brutal, but such opinions are rarely spoken publicly for fear of retribution that include the sudden "disappearance" of family members.

Three Romulan naval traditions are interesting to make note of, (1) the commander of a ship has to enter a password into his/her personal computer every 22 hours or the self-destruct will activate, the reason appears to be to discourage mutiny (quite fitting of a paranoid people). (2) no emergency transporters have been installed aboard any ships, and that (3) all ships are equipped with an advanced self-destruct device, that leaves nothing intact larger than a shoe if used.

Romulans enjoy all aspects of life to the fullest, reveling in their experiences. Even seemingly unpleasant experiences like death and war are cherished for their intensity. This does not mean that the Romulans have spurned logic. In battle (physical or political) some Romulans can be just as annoyingly calm and rational as their distant Vulcan cousins. The difference is that thoroughly enjoy the emotions. In interstellar relations, the Romulans have generally preferred to react to actions of a potential adversary, rather than committing themselves beforehand. Romulan citizens are a paranoid and dominated lot, but most are extremely loyal to their Empire. Some dissidents exist; a few of these seek asylum in the Federation, although this is often a cover for spies.

Romulans carefully regulate their shipping, and so are not as affluent as the Federation. However their blue Romulan Ale, though illegal, has become a very popular beverage in the Federation, and a great deal of wealth can be made by smuggling it. The Romulans seem to honestly believe that they are destined to rule the galaxy and are constantly working towards this end.

The Romulan Star Empire began a program of slow and steady expansion that continues to this day. The Empire covers an area about ninety percent of the size of the Federation, located "east-northeast" of the Federation in the Beta quadrant. The "Romulan Neutral Zone," a no man's-land about a light-year across, separates the two powers. Romulan member worlds are ruled with an iron fist, and have their indigenous governments replaced by Romulan ruling parties. Romulans give neither quarter nor compassion to their subject worlds.

The Romulan seat of power is centered on Romulus (ch'Rihan). It is a totalitarian government ruled by an individual called the Praetor, who is advised by an Imperial Senate. The government relies heavily upon its military and intelligence branches (the Tal Shiar) to maintain internal order. The Imperial Senate is "elected", and is controlled by a Proconsul. It is not known how much these elections may be secretly controlled by the Romulan government.

The Romulan government includes the Emperor, the Praetor, the Senate, the Military Command (which includes the various fleets, training command, base commands and military production), and the Civil Administration (planetary governors, etc.) The Emperor is a hereditary monarch although the lines of succession are not always clear. Theoretically a new emperor is selected by the members of the ruling House, but if they cannot agree (of it another House claims to be the rightful ruling House), the Senate makes the final decision.

If you ever saw Mirror Universe on the orginal Star Treck TV series, no doubt you luved the side of Spock that used cold blooded calculations to do his mission. If your a Vulcan or Romulan and seek to play hardcore in this way. Look no further. {VEF} is the place to be. Our ranking structure will be simple and our dealings with known enemies of the Federation will be swift and lethal. As a Fleet, we will favor strong Exploration, FvF, PvE, and RP.....More to come
