We're a small but growing fleet. There seem to be new applications to join every day. Even if we're getting bigger, we still want to remain friendly and open to everyone's ideas and suggestions. We have a fleet leadership, but not dictators.
A lot of the members have been with the game since the beginning and are willing to share advice and suggestions. Their experience runs the gamut, from PvE to PvP to The Foundry to fanfic/RP. We're nothing if not a welcoming crew.
I've been extremely pleased with the people who are signing up, thanks in no small part to our illustrious inspiration, Admiral James Bailey.
To see some of the growing backstory behind out fleet (and we're looking for people with active imaginations who can help us with it), see our blog: http://sto-tos.blogspot.com/
We've started this fleet to create a relaxed place for casual or active members in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, with an emphasis on fun and a strong social aspect. It is expected that captains may need to abort a mission and return to Starbase Mariner 10 in order to make lunches, do the dishes, or feed the baby. To us, life outside the game is as important as getting that cool Breen Boff.
We have very few rules and everyone has a say in the direction of the fleet. We do asl that all members have a strong connection to TOS, the TOS uniform for Fleet actions and possibly a Connie, and that you are familiar with our Fleet backstory. We're happy to help anyone brainstorm ways that their character, new or old, can fit in to that backstory. For more info, see http://sto-tos.blogspot.com/
We believe that everyone has their own gifts and abilities to bring to the fleet, so if you wish to be active in forming or running the fleet in any way please let us know. Also know that you are more than welcome to just sit back and enjoy yourself.
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.
Nce one Dan!! You are topping me in admin hours now lol
I'll accept that praise. Being more active than you is a considerable achievement!
If there's anyone out there on this rainy Wednesday morning (at least in this part of the world) who's looking for a fleet, is a fan of TOS, and is a nice person who likes to hang around other friendly people, then give us a look.
We're building an active group of mature (30+) players who enjoy the game but also know that real life comes first. We've already got a huge amount of know-how and accumulated experience in every facet of the game, and are willing to share ideas and tips freely.
We're also a friendly bunch. No drama and no egos. Just a group of people that wore plastic Spock ears as kids (or maybe that was just me).
We're busy developing the backstory to our fleet as well--one that involves returning through time to rescue Captains from the 23rd century. If you have any interests in writing or storytelling, we'd love to hear your contributions. All decisions about the fleet are open discussions.
We are old (+30)
We are mature (see above and donít go by the definition)
We like TSO better than the rest (but we like everything Star Trek)
We like to Rollplay (TOS)
We are social before gameplay
We think Kirk could kick Picardís A$$!
We are funny (at least I am)
We are a small Fleet (hope to be medium)
We are relaxed (no online requirement)
We have an online Blog (http://sto-tos.blogspot.com/)
We have a website with a Fleet Application http://stotosveteransfleet.guildlaunch.com/
We would like you to check us out and see if we are a good fit
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.
In order to not affect the time continuum the only way to choose worthy captains out of their own time and bring them to the future is to find all those that have no future. The captains must be about to die and taken from circumstances seconds before they meet their demise. They now have to accept that they have no past but have been given a new 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!
Hi all. we've added several people in the last few days. We are growing. If you want a friendly, no-drama Fleet, this is it. We are built around a TOS theme , but if you like other series, we can make that work too. check us out.
Thank you Doc!! You are quite the addition to the fleet Sir!
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...
I, Heinrich Schelton, have decided to take the salvation of the galaxy into my own hands!! After years of showering warnings onto unhearing ears, I now realize that only I have the knowledge and the ability to SAVE THE FEDERATION from the tribulations that await it.
I should have known. My work in socio-topology demonstrates without a doubt and with absolute mathematical precision that the modern day Federation is in a state of rapid moral decay from within. The lack of attention to my warnings is CLEAR EVIDENCE of this DECAY! OUR ONLY HOPE IS TO TURN TO THE VETERANS OF THE PAST! Only in this way can we meet that challenges that await.
I have thus chartered a private shuttle and have made the necessary calculations to execute a gravitational slingshot maneuver that will being me back to the 22nd century, when the Federation was more robust and resolute! More accurately, to 2269, where women were women and men were KIRK! There, I will rendezvous with the USS Enterprise and convince its illustrious Captain, the only, the one, the immortal KIRK, to return with me to the present. If rational arguments fail, I will do WHATEVER I MUST to bring him back with me.
I do not make this decision lightly. But SOMEHTING MUST BE DONE! And QUICKLY!
FAREWELL! I go to save you all, most especially my dear Kathryn. BUT I WILL RETURNÖWITH KIRK, OUR SALVATION!!
