If you are looking for an amazing fleet with fun, knowledgeable, involved, helpful, and clever members... well then look no further before you checkout the Lotus Fleet.
One of the reasons that this is an exclusive fleet is that you must go through Starfleet Academy, and PASS your classes to be eligible to join. Some of you may be thinking, hey that sounds like too much work... well... are you Star Trek fans or not???? Many can complete this in a manner of weeks... depending on their level of commitment and available time.
One of the advantages in this fleet is that members must WORK, LEARN, THINK, and TEST their skills and knowledge just to become a member. As a result, we have a fleet of very dedicated and involved members who each play a role in the fleet: based on their interests and initiative.
i.e. We don't have just a huge number of uninvolved members that come and go; instead we have a core of involved Lotus Fleet members that are welcoming and involved!
For example, we go on fleet episodes and missions together (using TeamSpeak3 to communicate), craft specific items, members are involved in creating some great role playing stories: we hold a rank and a particular position on a specific ship involved in episodic missions that are better than some published novels out there, weekly meetings, etc... and a collection of different social groups and other game related activities that occur.
My name is Rear Admiral Jureth and I am the new Senior Retention and Recruitment Officer for Lotus Fleet. If you've looked at us before you may have noticed that I was once posting as both the CO and XO of our Command Division. I held both those posts and had to take some time away but have returned and wanted to serve Lotus Fleet in some capacity so I have taken on this new position.
We've made some changes around the Fleet recently the most prominent being the retirement of Fleet Admiral Kheren, and the promotion of Admiral Evshell to the Fleet Admiral Post. Fleet Admiral Evshell continues the tradition of community and gaming that is Lotus Fleet and we would love for you to join us in these endeavors.
To that end there have been some changes to our fleet entry rules. Our version of Starfleet Academy is no longer required for membership in our STO Fleet. It is purely optional, and you can join us in game without partaking in the Academy. You can register on our site, fill out a new user form and select the level of participation that you wish to have, though the Academy is still a requirement if you wish to volunteer for one of the fleet positions. That said I can say from personal experience that the Academy is really a phenomenal, fun Star Trek experience. It will test your knowledge of Trek and possibly even impart some new knowledge.
So, if you'd like to join a fleet of Star Trek fans, gamers, and all around good folks I'd love for you to look us up at www.lotusfleet.org. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me either in game or on the website.
Take care, and we will see you in game and around the Fleet.
