This fleet has been completely awesome since I joined a couple of months ago. It completely suits my play style and everyone understands when RL gets n the way of playing.

I am really looking forward to he things we have planned for the starbases. If what we have done on Tribble is anything to go by, it is going to be amazing.

I've been a member of the TOS Vets for about 3 months now myself. And even though I just sorta slid in under the age limitations, I'm turning thi... thir... 29 (for the second time) in a matter of days. These guys (and the few girls) have been wonderful to me, and have taught me a lot about the game. But it isn't just that they have so much to share, it's how they share it. I started in MMOs a few years back in Guild Wars, and came to absolutely despise PvP (for instance), and yet I eagerly look forward to Thursday's Fleet PvP night, because I enjoy doing it so much. And socially, I could not ask for a better bunch. Our Monday night Not-A-Book Club meetings, where we ostensibly discuss various selected episodes from all the Trek series, are a joy to attend. We actually stay on topic for only about 15% or so of the time that we are together for the meeting; the other 85% is a bunch of friends cutting up and having fun. (A dozen players, running around aboard one fleetie's starship, zapping each other and random crew was legendary. Even if the only crewperson with the cojones to shoot back was the Transporter operator......) Yes, TOS Vets is mature, with mature players who enjoy a game. But we aren't a convent either. The thing is, we are mature enough to HAVE our fun without it escalating into something that is hurtful to other players, and therein lies one of TOS Vets biggest strengths. We Simply Know How To Have FUN Together. And we do it without any strings attached. We are a casual group with hardcore skills. We do Fleet PvP (and for those who want, there is a corps of players that participate in inter-fleet matches). We do loads of endgame stuff and STFs with lots of experience in successful elite missions. We even take on such challenges as the Crystaline Entity (we whooped up on it the other night with as few as 11 ships). And yet, these guys take everyone in, regardless of experience or equipment, and TEACH people. If we have someone new or just not quite as good as others, regardless of actual experience (like yours truly) no one gets upset and says "I'm not STFing with HER because she makes it more difficult to get the Elite Optional Bonuses" No... they just say "we'll get it this time, try doing this instead..." and that makes TOS Vets, in my opinion, the grandest fleet around. Look for us, and come join the fun.

I honestly couldn't ask for a better fleet. I was a Klingon, all alone, with only the occasional drunken Trill for companionship. Then I found TOS Qan Mang. The KDF sister fleet to TAS Veterans, TAS Qan Mang exists to provide a counter to the underhanded Federation tactics used by TOS Veterans. I applied, and I was soon welcomed with open arms into a community of brother and sister warriors renown for their friendly natures and skill with the Bat'leth.

Come seek out TOS Qan Mang, brothers and sisters! Requirements and limitations are few, while the benefits are many! And for you Federation petaQs, I suppose TOS Veterans are honorable enough enemies...

Hi! I used to be JBHemlock. There's already one of those in PWE. I play the Klingon Kerr, but there's already a Kerr in PWE, too. So I'm Gehmor, my Cardassian alt. Just picture me with a plate of gagh.

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!

This Fleet is over one year old! 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. We figured if you became a Captain in-game that you deserve that same respect in the fleet.

We sometimes RP and RP in the forums where we are working on a backstory to justify older 23rd century uniforms (or whatever time our Captains are from) in the 25th century and it is helping us to craft our bios.

Please check out our blogspot to read a little bit about our backstory or check out our website 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...

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.

Now that season 6 is here, 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.
