Great things happen with the original 'Lucky' 7th Fleet. We've been here through thick and thin, since closed beta. Accept no substitutes or imposters.
We are military friendly, and we run several pre-planned events scheduled on a recurring weekly and monthly basis. If you think you have what it takes to become a member of one the best fleets in STO, then fill out an application today.
Members of varying backgrounds that all "get" what it is to work together as a team? Double-check
Opportunities to lead based on performance, activity and drive? Triple-check
Outstanding artistic support in the form of ship patches, fleet activity footage, and personalized signatures? Check-a-mundo
Come to our site, see what we have to offer and compare it to other fleets.
TOS Tuesdays (as mentioned by the Fleet Vice Admiral) - do missions in vintage/heritage ships and equipment
Kick-A-Tribble - KDF side content is a lot more fun in a group, especially when it comes to pillaging and waging war
Operation Ares - quarterly in-house PvP matches for bragging rights and the chance to earn a "Battle E"
Bass Pro Shop - crafting material gathering event to stock up the Fleet bank, so Fleet crafters can make items for Fleet members
If you already like STO, you'll love it once you join the 7th Fleet.
The requirements are very minimal, just join us in game, in our Fleet Vent chat, and sign onto the Fleet web site once per month to stay active. If you want to take a break from playing you can just send a message on the Fleet site that you will be "on leave."
I really like how this Fleet has the element of role playing in that there is a command structure, and it is very well organized, but it is done in a way that is fun for the players. No one is bossy or pushy; they are all friendly and helpful, and the Fleet Admirals call YOU sir when you're just an Ensign.
The events that were mentioned up thread are only some of the ones I've been able to participate in since I joined the Fleet over a year ago. And, they are always fun.
I've seen Fleet members give detailed help to other members to spec out their ships, equipment and skills very often. We've even got a few Fleet members who have given expert technical support to other Fleet members whose computer equipment had problems, preventing them from playing the game. They were able to get the machines fixed very quickly.
One thing I can definitely say is that joining the 7th Fleet really made STO stand out for me as an MMO that keeps me coming back. They've added a lot of good things to the game, and it is constantly getting better, but none of these games are all that great without a great bunch of players to play them with. That, you will find here in the 7th Fleet. I cannot recommend this great group of players highly enough.
