Latest blog discussing the development of the almost here new website is up and can be read HERE.

This is the 6th in the current series and discusses a couple of updates to our completely custom and unique event system that easily allows members to coordinate their gaming activity. Seriously starting to think that Cryptic should be hiring some of our engineering team as our event tracker has even more features than STO's in-game one

So I saw a thread where someone had asked who the top 10 STO fleets were. Naturally that is highly subjective there isn't really any universally accepted quantitative way you can say Fleet X is better than Fleet Y since everyone is going to measure themselves differently and different people are going to want different things from a fleet so it really is impossible to measure what fleets are best as it all depends on how you measure them but it did get me thinking about UFP which operates THE IMPERIAL GUARD and what I think makes us one of the best Star Trek gaming groups around.

So, the first few things that came to mind:
  • 5 in-game fleets and support for each playable faction.
  • Top tier starbase.
  • An elite group dedicated to STFs and PvP.
  • More than a dozen dedicated event officers covering all major time zones.
  • Daily hosted events and regular events with other fleets.
  • Game guides for members of all experience levels.
  • We have our own website, forum, mobile app, team speak server and game servers.
  • We self publish our own Star Trek magazine featuring exclusive interviews with the Star Trek Online developers.
  • In partnership with Activision and CBS we also have a multi-game digital publishing deal allowing us to provide all members with FREE and completely legal copies of Elite Force Holomatch and RPG-X.
  • More than 10 years experience in the field of Star Trek gaming.
  • Over 700 active members representing more than 40 different nationalities.
  • In addition to Star Trek Online we also actively support the Star Trek Armada series, Star Trek Bridge Commander and the Star Trek Elite Force series.
  • We actively support roleplaying via SIMMs, Star Trek Online and RPG-X.
  • We were also voted one of the top 100 clans in the world a few years back, the only Star Trek gaming clan featured in the list I might add, again though it is subjective.
  • Annual 'real world' meet up events.

This weekend plays host to loads of events regardless of whether you are purely focused on playing Romulans or if your Romulan is an alt that needs some action.

Marked Mirrors
Tonight Federation aligned characters will get the chance to battle the forces of the Mirror Universe and earn lots of shiny fleet marks.

Friday PvP
The clue really is in the title for this one, every Friday plays host to PvP events and this one is no different.

Melee-a-thon 2
Bring your Federation aligned characters and their Bat'leths, Lirpas and Swords to these themed melee PvP events this Saturday.

Call to battle and glory!
This Saturday earn Fleet Marks, Nukara Marks and do STF runs with your Klingon aligned characters.

Joint Strike Assault - Part 4
The Dominion have returned and their target is none other than Earth itself, can you hold the line or will the Federation fall on your watch? Part 4 of the exciting episodic Joint Strike Assault series is this Saturday.

STF Sunday
Sundays are STF Sundays! Hosted STF runs throughout the day.

Joint Fleet Event with 2nd Fleet
This Sunday we're hosting a joint wargames event with 2nd Fleet.

Late night STFs
The sun might go down but the STFs keep going all through the night.

Chris that's an impressive list, sometimes it's easy to forget all the things UFP have achieved over the years!

I believe guests are completely welcome to attend this one, so those interested in seeing a taster of our community get on teamspeak and wait for the stream. (obviously on 28th of september, not at this current moment )
