If you're a TOS fan (you bleed red, blue, and gold--or lime greenish), you're mature (30s+), and are a relaxed, friendly, casual player, this may be the fleet for you.

We're small but growing and have people interested in all facets of the game. We're also developing a TOS backstory collectively--everyone can contribute. And we're creating bios for are characters and sharing them.

If you're interesting in joining us or even if you just share our love of TOS, you're welcome to come celebrate out two-month anniversary on May 31 at 9pm EST at Quark's on DS9. They'll be socializing, dabo, and some TOS trivia.

See our blog for a little bit of the developing storyline behind our fleet:

Also, our website is now setup so you can come aboard:

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!

Hehheheheh! By then we will be able to add more ranks on the fleet manager. The top rank will be Bones Lower Half and Bones Upper half and Vice McCoy

Seriously we could just get rid of the cadet position and move it to the top. The important this in that if anyone wants to help out and do some behind the scenes fleet work of in-game leadership we move them to the Fleet Admiral position.

We are all part of this fleet and we all have a say in the direction.

If you are around DS9 this evening at 6:00 EST put on your TOS uniform and meet us at Quark's Bar and we are having a bit of a birthday celebration!

It has been two months since a forum topic on the STO website spawned this fleet. What better way for a bunch of time displaced kirk types to celebrate than to descend upon Quark's @ DS9 for Daboo, a bit of trivia and a new fleet picture (the last one only had five members).

May 31st (tonight) at 9pm EST, be there.

Fleet Uniform required for fleet picture. (see Fleet Uniform page for any questions)

Following the bar fight that is sure to close Quark's we can break off into teams for various mission or private challenges.

We drink to the health of the Federation and to the stars we are lucky enough to call home.

Hey, thanks for asking the question.

Higher level folks do use ships beyond the Connie, though we also have plans to run some Connie missions, do some Connie PvP, and buzz ESD in formation. Those of us who have access to the TOS uniforms use them as fleet uniforms, but we also realize not everyone does. Nor does everyone have a Connie or the interior. So the real official fleet uniform is a nod ot the TOS one.

The biggest way that TOS is a part of the fleet is that our backstory is focused on the TOS era. In that sense, the TOS theme is more about storytelling than leveling and more about enjoying a shared interest than dictating how people need to play or what they need to purchase. We're also open to anyone who is a TOS fan but also wants to incorporate elements from other series/time periods as well.

We mostly focus on our shared love of TOS. A lot of us have memories of watching during the early or mid 70s (and a few in the late 60s, when the episodes were first broadcast), of putting together Connie models, or running around with our plastic phasers and tricorders (I was just doing that this last weekend). We hope we're keeping some of the TOS spirit alive as well.

Hope that answers your question.

If you or anyone else wants to stop by our two-month anniversary tonight (May 31) at 9pm EST at Quarks on DS9. You can see firsthad what sorts of people and players we are.

Oh I see what you are asking!

The connie thing is just for show, like an old car show where people park in a mall parking lot or do a parade. That sort of thing it is not meant to be mandatory or the only ship you fly.

With the backstory (rollpaying) part of the fleet most of us came forward in time with connies and immediately retrofitted them and got new 25th century ships and uniforms. We only get them out when we are doing PvP’s or some of the fleet actions and want to balance out (level the playing field) the match a wee bit or if we are using our new characters or lower level characters that we are trying to level. We all love out Vice Admirals but the game is over a year old and some of us are building up our Alts and creating new characters.

To recap… No rules, none of the TOS stiff is mandatory and we can use whatever we want. Some of us just feel a little nostalgic to use the TOS hand phaser or TOS phaser rifle.
