Just took the exam and passed, the forums and your fleet page was fantastic, what a great resource you guys have built. Still can't login to play until later this evening but hopefully ill see some people online tonight and I can make a more formal intro then just on your forums. So far the fleet looks like a well organized structured environment and I like that.

Welcome and feel free to make yourself at home on the forums. There is a cadet introductions thread in Starfleet Academy that you should post in There's a large group of elite level STFers online right now.

Oh don't worry if you're not to the character level required for STF yet we do semi RPed task force operations too - just a few hours ago we flew a cooperative mission in the Romulan theatre of operations....


Task Force "Auslia"
8 February 2012

Theatre of Operations: Romulan
Task Force Activity: Space/Ground Control, scientific objective.


Commander Auslia Tira of the USS Antietam was assigned a covert scientific mission to determine the root cause of the devastating stellar event that sent the entire quadrant into chaos. The Romulans are not pleased with a "Federation military expedition" into sovereign Romulan territory despite the Federation's best efforts of diplomacy.

Under the cover of a communications blackout, and with her warp signature modified to resemble a Ferengi flea market trader, USS Antietam had closed to within 2 light years of the Hobus system, where the catastrophic supernova originated. Carrying a team of WMD (weapons of mass destruction) specialists along with a sizable complement of Starfleet Combat Engineers, she will attempt to conduct a limited space control operation in the Hobus system to find out once and for all what the Romulans have been hiding, while the civilised Galaxy reels in fear of a repeat 'enhanced supernova' event in their home systems...

Finally departing commercial spacelanes, USS Antietam piles on maximum warp speed to close the final two light years to target, not knowing that a state of war now exists between the shattered, militant Romulan Empire, and the Federation, which has been stretched thin policing both the Alpha and Beta Quadrants while suffering the consequences of large scale naval reforms and a large surge of cadets from newly civilised worlds.

Dropping out of warp dangerously close to the shattered hulk of what used to be the agricultural planet Hobus III, Commander Tira readies her ship for battle just as a Romulan interception force starts to decloak in and around the system, cutting off all forms of escape.

Evading her pursuers by flying at 'terrain following' distance between planetary hulks and glowing embers of what used to be a planet's core, USS Antietam was finally cut off by a Romulan D'Deridex warbird which demanded her surrender amid devastating salvoes of plasma torpedoes. Outnumbered and vastly outgunned, Commander Tira nevertheless pressed on, employing her science vesse's superior sensors to precision target the Warbird's weapons and sensors arrays, effectively blinding it.

But with the Warbird's consorts finally overloading their impulse engines and overtaking the Antietam in open interplanetary space between Hobus II and III, all hope seems to be lost when the Federation vessel became the sole target of a combined salvo of at least a dozen heavy plasma torpedoes.

It was just then that all on site were mystified by what seemed to be a small 'lightning storm in space' which destroyed most of the torpedoes headed for the Antietam, leaving her free to turn and engage her pursuers. From the expanding cloud of superheated warp plasma emerged two Federation warships, the USS South Dakota, a hybrid exploration/battle cruiser derived from the Galaxy and Envoy class starships, and in close formation, the USS Agamemnon.

A derivative of the famed Defiant class tactical escort, Agamemnon used the bulk of the South Dakota's enormous hull to shield her from enemy detection while the South Dakota approached the Romulan capital ship head on, her main battery of experimental polaron 'lightning' beams blazing with wild abandon. As the battlecruiser traded blows with the Romulan Warbird at point blank range, USS Agamemnon piloted by Rear Admiral Kaine pursued and methodically destroyed the enemy tactical escorts harassing Commander Tira, who immediately led a decisive counteroffensive against the Romulan aggressors, rapidly beating them back to the remnants of Hobus I, where a secret Romulan military outpost was discovered.

With the Federation starships hovering overhead amid the miniscule gravity of what was left of Hobus I, Antietam's combat engineers deployed assault shuttles and sought to breach the Romulan perimeter shields while the South Dakota and Agamemnon engaged enemy surface to orbit weapons installations at point blank range where they could not effectively retaliate.

Establishing a low altitude geostationary orbit by use of her lateral and vertical RCS thrusters to counter Hobus I's miniscule gravity, USS Antietam provided direct starship support for ground teams while the two Federation warships continued to beat back Romulan warships attempting to relieve their besieged research facility.

Personally leading one of the ground assault teams, Commander Auslia Tira rapidly secured the Romulan base and transported a large amount of valuable top-secret WMD research material back to the Antietam, once and for all revealing the true causes of the "Great Bloom" that destroyed the very own Empire which created it.

Being of no further use to the Federation, the Romulan research base and underground research facilities were obliterated by USS South Dakota's plasma torpedoes as the task force made ready to leave the Hobus system.

Maintaining a tight formation, the three Federation starships of ad hoc Task Force "Auslia" successfully ran the Romulan blockade and escaped back to friendly lines.

I know there is PVP night, regular STF runs (Pickup and scheduled), casual RP, Fleet Engagements and regular Fleet events, but what else does the fleet offer?

A large, yet still growing, community of people from all over the world.

Can't wait to see our teamspeak server go into meltdown this weekend when the 2800 starts!

We seem to have a fully equipped virtual starship to RP in too with its own unique game system and smart website to keep track of said ship's status and inventory
