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!

The TOS Veterans was created with the formation of Project Christopher.
Project Christopher is a Top Secret, Special Operation Project, thought to be initiated by Section 31 and said to be connected with, but at an armís reach from Starfleet Intelligence, The Department of Temporal Investigations, The Vulcan V'Shar and the Andorian Am Tal. Some of the "Projects" key personell and officers have a connection, even a position within these Intelligence agencies.
No one really knows how the Project is connected to these other agencies or organizations however it is clear that Project Christopher is self sufficient and not above the law, however it may be slightly beneath the law.
The project consists of sending back an extraction team to the targeted time periods to extract potential Captain material candidateís moments before their demise and bringing them to the 2409 to help fight in the war efforts of the future.
It is not quite sure who is pulling the strings or if there is some other temporal violation that it is rectifying however, this organization is growing and is a force to be reckoned with.
For those not familiar with the nomenclature of Project Christopher, please refer to Star Trek: The Original Series episode #19: Tomorrow is Yesterday.
A fantastic TOS episode where we see one of Trek's very first violations of the Temporal Prime Directive.
On another note, TOS VETERANS FLEET is awesome. I've been involved in Star Trek Gaming through Elite Force, Bridge Commander, Starfleet Command, and Elite Force 2. I've done role playing with Red Squad and Omicron Fleet, and I must say that the TOS Veterans is one of the nicest group of people I've ever encountered in Trek Gaming and also in other Trek usergroup circles.
I feel lucky to have found this fleet and I'm sharing that knowledge for those who may be soul-searching a bit for a fleet that suits their needs as well.
Even if you decide not to join our merry gang...you'll most certainly encounter us in-game one way or another...to bear witness to the class, dignity, respect and good humor that has become our Fleet's mainstay.
Welcome to the Mariner 10 Spacestation EvilGrizz from The Last Outpost. I am glad that you are visiting the Mariner 10 Spacestation. I spoke only the truth!
Mariner 10 was named after an early 20th century Earthís robotic space probe launched by the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration. (Which later became part of United Earth Space Probe Agency) The Mariner 10 was launched on November 3, 1973, to fly by the planets Mercury and Venus. The Mariner 10 probe was the first spacecraft to use the gravitational slingshot effect to reach another planet, passing by Venus on February 5, 1974, on its way to becoming the first spacecraft to explore Mercury.
We're a well-organized group, that understands that family life often takes priority over gaming. Nevertheless, we always welcome our members to join us on Fleet Action night, PvP night, Leveling night, and even STF night. Most of the other days are dedicated to role-playing or free-play.
If you'd like to fly with us, stop by our site, and feel free to fill out an application. We're a really fun group of people, and we don't take ourselves too seriously. Most of all though....We LOVE Star Trek. The large majority of our members have been fans since The Original Series (Hence ToS Veterans), but we also enjoy all the subsequent series as well.
Doesn't matter whether you prefer Kirk or Janeway.....Check us out!
