In the year 2408 after the Klingon and Gorn invade Cestus III a Starfleet Committee chaired by Admiral Jorel Quinn passed motion to explore other options and possibilities in order to build up the Federation with commanders and ships. "We need to promote exceptional officers quickly. We need our captains leading away teams. Starfleet needs to look at our whole command structure and do what works now, not what worked 30 years ago."
A Starfleet diplomat was sent back to the late 2260's to speak with Starfleet in order to round up several possible exceptional commander candidates and as many star ships as they could refurbish from the decommissioned roster. This section 31 operation was known as Projct Christopher after the 1960's aiforce officer that was beamed aboard the USS Enterprise.
To not alter the timeline the only way that they could choose captains is to find all those worthy commanders that have no future. The captains must be about to die and taken from thier situation seconds before they meet the end. They now have no past but now have a future. These are members of the ghost fleet.
The chosen captains were given ships that were pre programmed with precise calculations in order to carry out the light-speed breakaway factor to artificially-created time warp in order to time travel back to the 2408.
Once the initial five captain were sent, Starfleet would keep their eye out for any such qualified command personnel to join the fleet and to help fight the war in the future.
You may be that commander!
This is a new fleet! We wanted a mature relaxed fleet where our families came first and the fleet came second. We found a group of people with a lot in common and have a lot of fun.
Most of us are life members so we wanted something that will last a lifetime. Everyone has a say in the direction of the fleet and we are all equals.
The ranking system is based off of our in-game ranks. I figured if you became a Captain in-game that you deserve that same respect in the fleet.
We are a Roll Playing fleet where we are working on a backstory to justify older 23rd century uniforms in the 25th century and it is helping us to craft our bios.
Please check out our blog to read a little bit about us or check out the forums in our website. If you are interested at all please fill out an application in our website and read a little bit more about us and get to know the members better. If we are not a good fit then there are no hard feelings. Different strokes...
Mature (30ís & 40ís & Beyond) relaxed casual fleet looking for fleet members that like The Original Series (TOS) that they donít mind following a story line that takes them from 2269 to the future to help fight in a war that would be their future. http://sto-tos.blogspot.com/
We are a TOS themed and retrofitted to fight in the 25th century but we need you and your enthusiasm (and a few backstories) to help us out.
We wanted to set this fleet up where everyone is just as important as everyone. Since we needed to have some sort of ranking system we decided to set it up with whatever rank your toon is in-game. We figured that you have built them up in-game and they should carry the same amount of respect in the fleet. If a player wants to get more involved with the administrative and in-game planning then we will put you in a Fleet Admiral position.
Everyone has a say in the direction of the fleet and if you have any questions or ideas please let us know.

TOS Veterans Fleet is still new and so we're open to suggestios and ideas about how we do what we do. It's the people who join who will determine which directions we go.
Ultimately, we're hoping to find friendly, creative people who have an interest in classic Trek and a desire to share that interest and have fun with STO. We have a TOS theme, but we are not limited to it and can make room for a lot of creative backstories within it.
