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!
If you're curious about our fleet and want to know more about how we work, we'll be running replays of the Devidian missions this coming Thursday and the following Tuesday.
We're a friendly group of mature (30+) folks who are fans of TOS. We're knowledgeable in many aspects of the game and increasingly active. We also recognize that real life often has to take precedence over the game. If you want to meet some good people, share your knowledge of Star Trek and STO, and like to enjoy the game in a relaxed atmosphere, we might be the fleet for you.
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
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.
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...
If you're a mature (30+) player looking for a friendly, casual fleet;
If you're a fan of TOS;
If you want to join a group without lots of rules and regulations;
If you're an experienced or new player, willing to give or need to get advice;
If you are creative and like to write bios and backstories;
Then we might be the fleet for you.
We're growing daily and moving into new areas. We're talking about forming a Klingon fleet. And we'll start having silent auctions for the fleet soon. We've been replaying the featured episodes, too, and have been running internal PvP matches. And we should soon begin planning Foundry missions together.
We'll continue to grow, but right now is an exciting time. Especially if you want to take an active role in forming a fun, low-key, friendly fleet, you should check us out.
If you are in your 30's, 40's, 50's or even 60's and you enjoy a relaxed fleet where you have a say in the direction and you can be as involved as you like please check us out.
Just a warning!! We may be a little nerdy and we have been doing some role playing and bio/fiction writing to justify why Captains in 2409 would be wearing 2269 uniforms. It all makes sense when you are willing to bend the prime directive (as well as spacetime) a wee bit.
