The 26th Fleet is dedicated to providing an atmosphere of heavy roleplay that focuses on character development and creating an immersive Starfleet experience; we believe that the story of Star Trek is not about the politicking of civilizations or the vastness of space, but about the individuals who shaped a galaxy in times of war and peace.
The 26th Fleet promotes these ideals by hosting frequent social events set against an overall fleet plot. Each month, we host one major event that can include as many members who wish to attend. These large gatherings are meant to foster the interpersonal relationships between the characters of our members while our weekly, smaller events give our members a chance to level their characters in a group setting while still providing a mature roleplaying environment.
If you're looking for a fleet that values heavy immersion and serious roleplay, the 26th Fleet is for you!
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
The 26th Fleet aims to create the experience of Starfleet captains to the smallest detail. Common procedures, ceremonies, court martial hearings, missions, and military intrigue are just some of the many aspects of Starfleet life the 26th Fleet is dedicated to reproducing to give our members a totally immersive experience.
Officers in the 26th Fleet are assigned (chosen during the application process) to task forces - each with its own unique style and mission. As quasi-independent groups within the fleet, task forces host their own events and follow along with their own plots which relate to the overall story. These small groups of players are sort of like communities within the community, and we hope that by fostering friendly competition between them, we can create a truly unique fleet experience.
Within their task force and in the fleet at large, officers can climb the ranks and take on responsibilities to help the fleet operate. The 26th Fleet is always looking for dedicated members of the community who are eager to help the fleet grow and improve. Members of our fleet command are responsible for website administration, graphic design, and story writing - among other duties - so there are plenty of opportunities to contribute outside of the game.
In addition to positions in the various task forces, with the release of Season 6, members can choose instead to serve positions aboard the fleet starbase, SB381 Praetorian. From the top officers in each department to quartermaster and bosun, the positions aboard SB381 run the gamut just like those on a starship. This option is especially enticing to members looking for a more slow-paced, intensive character development environment full of personal drama and office politics.

A warm welcome to our newest members, Captain Erik Fury, Captain Nya Savrok, and Captain Jordan Berkezt.
In addition, I'm pleased to announce that Captain Erika Angrisano will be taking on the duties of Vice Commander while Captain Erik Fury will take the reigns of Task Force Avalon. Congratulations to both.
Now is a great time to join the 26th Fleet and be a part of something you can help shape and evolve. We've got a great community forming here and I'm pleased to say the future looks bright for the 26th!
Our original post has been edited to provide more information about our new starbase positions. Take a look!
We're happy to announce that Captains Martin Vonholt, "Doctor" Janos Faux, and Pa'tah have joined the 26th Fleet!
Excerpt from our fleet news this week:
Recruiting Drives, Fleet Alerts, and Doctors, oh my!
What a hectic few days it's been for the 26th!
To start, we've consistently been adding new officers to the roster--all of whom display some of the best roleplaying I've seen in Star Trek Online. We're very pleased to have you all with us; the 26th is shaping up to be one of the best roleplaying communities in the game. So here's a big warm welcome to all of our new members!
As the roster grows, so does the site. I've been busy updating permissions, setting up forums, and fleshing out some of the informational pages in an effort to provide you all with a place to socialize and to give you references for roleplay.
Most recently added was a page for SB381 Praetorian, which features technical statistics and a listing of some major NPC characters who call the starbase home. For those interested in a more sedentary position in the fleet, we'll be offering characters positions on Praetorian if that is more you thing.
We've also added a story page which highlights the major plot points currently taking place. Be sure to read up and get an idea of where the 26th is at.
Keep checking back with the site as we'll be updating more and more as time goes on. Don't forget to get involved in the forums as it's a great place to meet your fellow officers and chat about the game.
In-game, we've already seen some great roleplaying. With the appointment of Captain Erik Fury to command of Task Force Avalon, you can expect to see some scheduled events kicking off very soon. He's also been leading teams into Starbase Fleet Alerts for members who want to see some action and collect marks to contribute to starbase construction.
Speaking of starbase construction, officers of the 26th have graciously offered their extra resources to start up development of SB381 Praetorian. We've already completeed two projects--two more of which are cooking right now--and another is nearing completion. Way to go!
Finally, I'd like to personally thank Erika Angrisano for helping get the 26th up and running. Your effort these last couple of days has been very much appreciated.
To all of you, I'm really excited about what's in store for the 26th. Things are really picking up!
Just wondering if your fleet is looking to fill any specific holes, such as more Engineering or Science background characters, or particular ships types that aren't well represented in your task forces just yet?
I am looking for solid RP guild to join as I return to the game, and I'm very interested in what I've seen here. Problem is this - I have too many alts! =)
I'm quite experienced with RP and STO RP in particular - hence why I'm asking about any holes you'd like to see filled. I'm pretty comfortable RPing in nearly any niche.
We've got plenty of room in all departments, but the real question is if you're interested in more ship-based roleplay or starbase roleplay. There are fair bit more opportunities to distinguish a character by serving on our starbase, SB381, because we provide room for each department and for very specific positions--all in-character--at the player's discretion.
Positions in Task Force Avalon are strictly ship command roles. Specialization there comes down to what type of starship you captain.
For specific positions available or to get an idea of what we're looking for, take a look here at the SB381 roster.
I'll catch you in-game if you have anymore questions.
