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!
"MATURE" is subjective... We are all in our 30's, 40's and Beyond... Some of is are still teenagers with something to prove Mid-Life style lol
We do have a good team of people/leaders and always looking for more. We try to remember that this game is about FUN and the Fleet is about sharing and giving opportunities for more fun. We also have a large group of fanfiction writers in our fleet and some of us just like being creative but need some help on the literary side.
We are social first but we do cater to all aspects of the game. We have Fleet Nights Scheduled for 9:30 EST every week night. These are not set in stone and are just set up so those that can only get on certain nights can work around the schedule. If there is more interest is a certain event on another time or evening please give us your feedback.
Monday 9:00 EST - Levelling Night/TV (not a book) Club
Tuesday 9:00 EST - Premade team PVP practice/Anything Goes!
Wednesday 9:00 EST - STF Night
Thursday 9:00 EST - Fleet PvP Night
Friday 9:00 EST - Anything Goes!
Saturday 9:00 EST - RP/Anything Goes!

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
The TOS Veterans have members that do everything that STO has to offer. Small groups and large groups of people do everything from STF, Foundry Missions, RP, PvP and PVE.
One thing we are very proud of is the quality of our players and the ability to balance casual players along with die-hard gamers that wish to create the perfect PvP and team.
The TOS Veterans - Omega Task Force - Space (Ghost Fleet) has been working on PvP skills and tactics for over a year now trying to create the ?perfect? premade PvP team. With ongoing consultation with members of the Sad Pandas fleet the Ghost Fleet is working on building a 3 team PvP team that will be a force to be reckoned with.

We are at a point where can hold our own against SOB and Sad Pandas. We don't win yet but we give them a good fight and that's some very nice progress.
Now something that I would like to bring up is that TEAMWORK means much much much more than gear and ability.
So if you over 30 years old, are someone that is interested in PvP and is willing to work on your build and skills for the sake of the team and willing to take orders from the team leader then you may have just taken the first step to having some PvP fun!
Join the TOS Veterans and let us know that you are interested in joining the Ghost Fleet in your online application.

Reason: TOS Veterans PvP Omega Task Force
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...
Thank you for visiting the Mariner 10 Starbase. We are well into construction on Tier 2 and are really excited about our Starbase being built around us.
Mariner 10 was named after an early 20th century Earth's 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.
In the great tradition of Original Star Trek re-runs (the best re-runs in the universe, I might ad ... errrr .... add - much to the chagrin of Lassie and Flipper fans) I present ... my words from earlier in this thread:
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.
