# 1 Private Group

Yesterday I was playing with a friend from our game club. We formed a close group and started a patrol quest. However, whenever we entered a system, there were other players autojoined to our group. Will this be happening all over the game? Won't I be able to fly around just with 1 or 2 of my buddies and always have random strangers with us? For example, we had one occurance where such a stranger first grabbed all the anomalies in the system and only joined in the infight in the end for a bit. That means we did all the work and he finished the quest nontheless.

I wouldn't mind if I enter a system solo, but when I'm already in a group, why can others join? Especially when I form a closed group?

You could use the /lfg command to stop the auto grouping.

You can set your grouping option to be invite only, so you as leader for example can invite your friends and no one else can join.

I think its called status and is in the options next to the chat bar

I don't think that would have worked. It stated something like "Adding player to Open Instacne Group" or similar. It seemed like the instance was overruling my closed group.

The game uses 5 person teams, so it might have just been filling the places.

Lifted from this thread http://forums.startrekonline.com/showthread.php?t=88429

1. Step: Go to the “Social” --> ”Teamsetting” --> "Open Team” and toggle on “Closed Team”
2. Step: again “Social” --> ”Teamsetting” --> ”Invite Team” and choose “Request Invite”

if you make it a closed team it shouldn't try to fill the spaces, worth a try when the server is back up
