Hello TOS Veterans! I have a question about your fleet!
I may have misread, but I beleive you all run ships and characters outfitted in the traditional TOS Style. I am curious.
This is something that I can see being easy with your ground characters.
How do you run T5 Ships that conform to the TOS mindset you're utilizing? Weapons are easy enough, yes, but again....I'm very curious about the ships. Thanks for any answers you give!
a great question, and the simple answer is "no" We have a back story to our fleet, that most players confirm to in some way shape or form that places the origins of the majority of our characters in the TOS era. All based our around our current era and a Section 31 Program called Project Christopher...
As with all things this is not "mandatory"... we also have the same backstory that enables characters from Enterprise/TOS/Movie/TNG/DS9 era's and even the animated series to join in.
So we use modern T5 ships; some, though not all of us, use the TOS Dress code... many of us own the Connie and or D7 we have a sister fleet in the TOS Qan Mang, and some of us roleplay in TOS era, or run fleet events designed to use the Connie or the D7/Excelcisor.
But mostly it is the "series" we grew up with; and so it has a special place in our hearts...
You definately can play the Exeter (with a Movie Connie Skin) quite late into the game with uprated weapons, shields etc... , but it becomes quite challenging... but if you are taking on the Borg give me my Trusty Defiant
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.

PWE Drone says: "Your STO community as you have known it is ended...Display names are irrelevant...Any further sense of community is irrelevant...Resistance is futile...You will be assimilated..."
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...
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.

This is easy! If you are over 30, have work and family cutting into your 'play time', you like Star Trek A LOT and want to hang with people that are in the same mindset. Then please click on my signature image, go to the site... read the front page message, watch the 5min recruiting video and if you still like what you see, then come on and join our fleet.
We have over 150 members (mostly) in our main TOS Veterans Fleet and we have some of our alts in the TOS Qan Mang Klingon Fleet and we are looking to keep this fleet to a medium size. So if this fleet appeals to you or if you need any more information please let me know.
No mandatory fleet uniform, rules, bosses or time requirements. James Bailey
I just have to say that the TOS Veterans are (in my eyes) the best fleet in the galaxy! They are a mature fleet of casual gamers but Star Trek fans first! Not a group of cannon police but a group of real fans that respect the game and the franchise we call Trek!
No bosses and no rules and nothing is mandatory, just good old common sense and ?looking out for the other guy? mentality. We are made up of people from all areas of the working (retired) world and we all know that Real Life can cut into our STO play time from time to time when we least expect it.
Please check out the website at tosfleet.com to see more about what this fleet is about.
does the fleet do STFs and all the good stuff, or just when everyone is on can make it when able to? because ive seen some fleet websites that has fleets at certain times, and unfortuantely due to my work i am not able to attend but your fleet sounds just up my alley.
We have a good group of people on all the time and they are usually easy to "conscript" another 4 to do STF's. However we also have a scheduled STF night that usually starts at 9:00 EST and runs right through until 2:00 in the morning. People come on and drop off when they can. There is also a schedule in UK time zone as well.
We run both regular and elite and have lots of fun!
