Well, it's hard to do a youtube series without voice.

Knowing you I can imagine why, and I don't blame you! Although I have no phobia of speaking to anyone, I am just hopelessly old fashioned and either like to write or speak to someone in person. Otherwise it's weird to me. Plus, my home environment isn't too accommodating for it either.

Heck, I can barely even think fast enough for regular text chat, I prefer when I have several hours to write a few paragraphs and gather my thoughts !

I know how that is. My own brain does not work fast enough to keep up with normal in-game chat. And I type even slower. The only reason I use Ventrilo is because my Caitians are all in Nova Fleet, and they use Ventrilo to communicate. But I have found that it is quite more efficient. With text only, I have to stop what I am doing, read, type a response, all the while letting the Borg kill me. With a voice chat, I can simply hold Tab to activate the microphone, and talk while I keep shooting.

Only Ventrilo and STO in-game.

I successfully completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE.

Also, I tend to not use voice chat for two reasons.
1. Through any kind of tech I sound like a drug addict with a cold.
2. The only kind of mic I have is my webcam, and I'm not sure how to use it as a mic

Last I checked close to 200 maybe? Not sure how many of those are active or alts.

We're all in our own private channel used to communicate when not on a fleet character.

EDIT: We're at 222.

I'm in a KDF Fleet now, think there are over 250 members in it, but all the high ranking guys seem to set the projects up so they can fill in the expertize, fleet marks and duty officers (esp Science) leaving everyone else to spend money on provisions, or to use up our dilithium.

Obviously, I am playing a Ferasan, I wanted to play Tactical with KDF, though the Klingon traits didn't seem to do me justice (this was before news of the trait system revamp was coming), typical. I know of this fleet (other than having it seen in banners here) via a Master Lindale who has pestered a number of gamers over on the GameFront forums to join the Shadow Force.

I've been considering jumping ship. I'm only at level 44 right now, and have 44k(ish) fleet credits to my name. Hoping to get the Fleet B'rel once it's unlocked (tactical ships are nice, but I play better with the Bird of Prey Universal loadout). What's the ranking structure? Could anyone tell me? The current fleet I'm in, as soon as you've been a member for 48hrs, you've got fleet store access (though they're hardly suffering from provisions).
