Mature (30+) relaxed casual fleet looking for fleet members that like The Original Series (TOS) and want to contribute to a story line that takes them from 2269 to the future to help fight in a war that would be their future.
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're creating the story behind our fleet together. Some of us are writing log entries. Some are writing fiction. Some are coming up with great new ideas.
We are either 30 something or 40 something so you may define us as mature.
We have starter this fleet to create a relaxed fleet for casual or active members with an emphasis on fun and a strong social aspect. It is expected that captains may bail out of a mission to return to Starbase Mariner 10 in order to make lunches, dinner or feed the baby. To us family like is as important as the prime directive. That is a non Kirk version of the Prime Directive!
Very few rules and everyone have a say in the direction of the fleet. We do have one wish that all members have the TOS uniform for Fleet actions and possible a 23rd century Ship and you are familiar with our Fleet backstory. We understand that all members may not be into the roll playing but just humour us and build your character bio to correspond. http://sto-tos.blogspot.com/
We are under the philosophy that everyone had their own gifts and abilities to bring to the fleet so if you wish to be active in forming the fleet in any way please let us know. Also know that you are more than welcome to just be a part of the fleet.
I was just looking through the previous posts in this thread trying to think of something new to say.
Aside from a focus on TOS (and not all members have strictly TOS characters, though we're working together to create bios that fit with a TOS-centric backstory), we may seem a little all over the place. And to a certain extent, that's true.
We're still forming, still finding our footing, still deciding exactly what we want to be as a fleet. We're determined that all members should have a role in deciding that. There are no dictators here.
We're mature (30+), have real lives that we have to attend to, friendly, and helpful. If that sounds good to you, and if you want a place that you can explore STO from a lot of different angles, then you might give us try. We definitely need people who have good ideas, are creative, and want to have fun.
I just wanted to say hello from THE 300 and invite your fleet to our TOS event.
I've had an eye on your fleet for a bit now, I really like the TOS theme your fleet is working with. The majority of our fleet is made up of 30+ gamers as well. We would love to see you guys at our event and get to know you. You can contact me (Giles@Steelthorn) or Drake (below) if you would like to get in contact with us; our fleet website is www.the300.net. We also have been forming a group of allied guilds for sharing events and rubbing elbows, just give us a shout if you are interested.
TOS MEMORIAL EVENT
Due to popular demand, we will be having a special 'TOS' Holo-Event. We will pay homage to James T. Kirk and the Original Series through a scheduled Replay Event. There are a couple of suitable replay missions, mostly from the Devidian story arc, that take place in the TOS-Setting; all present members will be voting the mission we will play.
Starting time: 4:30 p.m. (EST) Saturday April 16, 2011
Point of Contact: Mary L. Drake@FrancisDrake.
- Meet at ESD/Sol in system, prior to docking in lowest possible instance (#1)
- beam down to ESD, have a tour and invite possible TOS-looking players to the event
- group photo at Club 47
- flying to mission location in formation and complete it.
- Post mission, split up for PvP groups and do a couple of TOS-PvP's
All attending personnel are required to do so dressed in an original series uniform (Any TOS-Set will qualify, Wrath of Khan is available to all) and naturally with your fleet logo displayed. For guidance, please make use of the color charts provided:
Operations, Tactical, Engineering
- only TOS gear should be visible like Type I-III phaser weapons or TOS-Style disruptors, etc. Disable visuals for kits, Armour, etc.
- if possible use a TOS Constitution class with original weapon load-out, if not available
- there are also a couple of other lower tier ships that qualify (use good judgment)
- disable all visible equipment on ship/character (no Borg visuals, etc)
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It's generated some definite interest.
If I can pull myself out of my post-tax-day stupor, I'll do my best to be there. If only I could slingshot around the sun, go back in time, and re-amortized the adjustable interest on my fifth mortgage.
Where's Samuel T. Cogley when you need him!?! (Though I'm not sure he did tax law...)
Since I'm here, I'll mention, once again, that we're happy to welcome any mature players (30+) who are looking for a low-stress, friendly, TOS-themed fleet of peers.
We are old (+30)
We are mature (see above and don’t 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 Picard’s 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
We're a group of mature (30+) and friendly players with real lives who share a interest in classic Trek. If you watched TOS afterschool as a kid, prized your model Connie, had a plastic phaser pistol, or just enjoy the original, join in for a little fantasy and a lot of fun and friendship.
We're interested in all facets of the game. We've got plans for The Foundry. And we're developing a fleet backstory together and sharing character bios. We are retrofitted to fight in the 25th century but we need you and your enthusiasm and creativity to help us out.
To read some of the developing backstory of our fleet, see:
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 (spelling and grammatical skills not required). We have a TOS theme, but can make room for a lot of creative backstories within it.
I have been following your career for several years now, ever since your return from the Delta quadrant. You were willing to do anything required to save your ship and crew. Now the time has come to save the Federation itself!
My name is Heinrich Schelton. I do not know if your busy Starfleet schedule—who could not benefit from your advice or seek your audience!—enables you to keep up with advances in social mathematics, but I am well-known in that area. I have sent you a copy of my book, The Socio-Topological Evolution of the Federation, signed, of course, and with an inscription especially for you. I am excited at the prospect of further discussing my ideas with you. I am sorry to say that I meet so few women who combine such high intelligence with such a lovely visage!
The aspects of my work that I must bring to your attention today involve the future. My calculations show that the Federation is in grave danger from multiple sources—almost too many to be plausible! It is as if we are puppets in some twisted game! There are enemies lurking in every quarter of the galaxy, some known and some as-yet unknown, and within the Federation itself! I have recently solved a high-level Asimov equation that suggests the return of the ancient Iconians!
Yes, difficult to believe, I know. And yet we must! The equations do not lie! And there is only one way—equally unbelievable and yet absolutely certain—to rescue the future. We must turn to the past! We must rely on the strength of a Starfleet that was more robust and willing to take chances! We must travel back in time and retrieve JAMES T. KIRK! I fear the delay in doing so has already made matters far worse. My current calculations indicate that a single Kirk will no longer be sufficient.
Once we have the original, I am confident that he can be cloned. Only FIVE KIRKS will be able to save us!
I write you because I know that you are a woman who is willing to take risks. In many ways, you are closer to Kirk than any other current member of Starfleet. You are certainly no Picard! I have approached other members of Starfleet and Federation officials with my proposals, but none have been able to understand either the urgency of events or the mathematical certainty of my calculations. In you, however, I see a soulmate, one who is able to perceive the boldness of my ideas and their rightness.
I have cleared out my schedule for the next several days and eagerly await the invitation to talk more. If do not object, I know of a lovely little place in San Francisco were we could meet and enjoy a fantastic meal at the same time!
