We are a mature relaxed fleet where families and real lives come first and the game comes second. You won't hear any complaining if you have to be at work early tomorrow morning or need to get offline to help a spouse or change a diaper. We don't have labyrinthine rules or regulations. We're just a group of people with a lot in common and who have a lot of fun.

This Fleet is over one year old! Most of us are life members so we wanted something that will last a lifetime. Our fleet council aren't dictators. They're just members like everyone else. We believe that everyone should have a say in the direction of the fleet and we are all equals.

Once season 6 arrives, we'll be working together to build a starbase and making sure that everyone gets a chance to contribute.

Please check out our blogspot to read a little bit about our backstory or check out our website (TOSFLEET.COM) and the forums. If you are interested at all please fill out our short application 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...

It is really nice to see all of you TOSers on here! I went away for the weekend to the Atlin Music Festival in northern BC (Canada). It was a great time, amazing music and lots of beer! It was really nice to come back to so much action on the TOS Veterans Recruiting Forum.

It is really good to have you guys in the fleet! I have really found a home away from home with you guys!

Mature (30's, 40's and Beyond) Casual Social Fleet

Our play style is relaxed with no time obligations. We believe that all fleet members should have a say in decisions. Our ruling council members are here to answer questions and participate in conversations, not dictate commands. We want to keep our fleet bank stocked with unique items at all levels to help everyone out.

We have a TOS theme... We have a TNG theme... We have a DS9 theme...

We have a VGR theme... We have a ENT theme... We even have a TAS theme...


...because we have all found STAR TREK at different points in it's history. Our fleet embodies what STAR TREK is for all of us. Your TOS may be TNG (or DS9 or VGER or ENT!), so our mission statement above still applies! Join and add alts to our Klingon Fleet, The TOS Qan Mang! Consider both part of the same Fleet, Only bitter enemies of war! It will be GLORIOUS!

The name may be TOS Veterans, but ALL Star Trek fans ARE Welcome!

The backstory of our fleet revolves around a group of captains and ships brought from the year 2269 to fight for the Federation. We intend the fleet backstory to be a collaborative effort, so discussion, ideas, and expansions are welcome. Fleet characters should have bios that relate in some way to the backstory, and we are happy to brainstorm on how to do that collectively. The TOS theme and backstory is meant to be fun and not a burden.

We are interested in all facets of the game, and plan to run occasional fleet actions with TOS era ships whenever possible. We also have plans to use The Foundry to create TOS-era adventures, flesh out our backstory and character biographies, and play with ideas that members have contributed.

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!

I have been a member of this fleet since March and I can tell you it has really increased my enjoyment of the game. I had always been a solo player partly because I have always been a gamer but not really an MMO player and partly because previous online interactions had often been unpleasant. I found this fleet in the recruiting forums and I was drawn by the TOS theme and especially the over 30 age requirement. The age requirement and the casual style really eliminate the drama aspect that so many fleets are plagued with.
In this fleet I have met some great people from really diverse backgrounds. Everyone has their own goals, likes and dislikes as far as gameplay and this fleet has all of them covered. We have organized fleet nights:STF night (space/ground), premade PVP night, intrafleet PVP night (casual, friendly and often hilariously fun pew pew), not a book club night (we watch trek shows/movies then discuss them in a book club type atmosphere and sometimes even remain on topic for a little while) and soon to come fleet action night. We have role playing for those interested but it is not required and at almost any given time you can find people willing to run an episode to help you out or an STF to chase that next piece of gear. I have never been at a loss to find someone willing to help me out whether it be to answer a question or help me with my build or just someone to run my dailies with to make them a bit more fun.
In short being a part of this fleet has been an awesome experience and I would encourage any social and casual player over the age of 30 to check us out. I believe you will find a comfortable home here.

Well, let's see. I'm still fairly new in TOS. I concentrate on one character (so far) ... mainly because my time is limited (hahaha - some may say) and I'm a bit lazy (most er some will agree).

But this isn't about me. Allow me to provide some quotes on comradeship (this being a rather Kirkish thing t do if one doesn't overdo it - which I naturally will):

"Grant stood by me when I was crazy, and I stood by him when he was drunk, and now we stand by each other."
― William T. Sherman

"You can't substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is not a substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. (Just remember that glory costs Dilithium, Zen and time and get out there and kill things - errr - explore.)"

"The King once said to me, 'Harold, you stand above all other men.' I said, 'No, Sire. I want nothing more than to stand shoulder to shoulder with my men. I am nothing without them."

"Men can, of course, be stirred into life by being dressed up in uniforms and made to blare out chants of war. It must be confessed that this is one way for men to break bread with comrades and to find what they are seeking, which is a sense of something universal, of self-fulfillment. That is, until their spouses have had enough of their on-line shenanigans and turn off the PC."
" ... to boldly split infinitives that no man had split before." Hence the 'split infinity' drive.
