We are the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet, made up of Vulcans and other races who value logic and analysis, are very organized around our central concept: To enhance and enrich the STO experience for our members. We help each other with info and game items (shared in our Fleet Bank), we don't require our members to do much more than share info and Intel, and we respect RL - always. We have members on odd schedules and our membership is worldwide - there will always be at least one VKF member around to team with, and often more. Away missions are real fun with a group of players coordinating on TeamSpeak (faster than the chat box), and space battles are...epic!

Check us out at www.vulcankolinahrfleet.com/forum.php and see if we are what you want.

Live Long and Prosper!

If you value logic, analysis and intellect, your instincts were correct, you belong in the VKF. If you like to delve into the deepest nooks and crannies of game mechanics, find hidden nuggets of knowledge about STO and share them with your Fleet-mates, you belong in the VKF. If you want to team with friends who will not only watch your back, but let you show off your best skills and tactics while trouncing the enemy with dispatch, you belong in the VKF.

So head over to The Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet and learn about how we are organized, how we operate, and how we socialize.

If you were intrigued by Spock, you'll be fascinated by the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet. We are a group of Vulcans and non Vulcans alike planning for the most enriching in-game experience possible.

If you want to fast-track your character in-game, you need to know where the resources are, where and how to gain the skill points needed to rank up quickly, and what traits, skills and equipment are best for the various situations.

You'll benefit from the help we can give you both in weapons and skills. You need the support of loyal Fleet-mates and who could be more loyal than Vulcans!

Even if you’re by nature a peaceful race, you will be engaged in this time period. There is no neutral ground. You must choose your destiny. VKF is seeking Vulcans and non-Vulcans alike who wish to engage their true essence in their blood. To be the best in the sciences, research and War! We need Vulcans who do not fear the edge or the unknown. Logic dictates what action we must chose....

Good morning. I hope you will take a moment and consider the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet. We are a small but great fleet. We are easy going, dedicated and friendly. We all come from different backgrounds and have different ways of doing things, but that?s part of what makes us great.

Anyone in our fleet is happy to help others when needed, in almost any aspect of the game and in some cases RL. We have a fleet TeamSpeak3 server that we use for voice chat not just in-game but also to hang out as well and get to know each other better (not required, just available). Many of us are located on the East Coast and Midwest (USA), Europe and now even parts of the Middle East.

Although I say our fleet is dedicated, we also realize that everyone has lives as well, so when you need to take the time, you don't need to be concerned about losing your position within the fleet due to RL too. We do not discriminate against such things because we understand that sometimes real life issues and problems can take time to resolve, and that some time is needed to sort things out.

So please, think about joining and moving with us into 2410 armed with the best Intel, the most specific and targeted body of knowledge about STO, and a group of Fleet-mates who will be there with you in the crunch.

The Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet

Live Long and Prosper!

I am Phoenix_Lord, High Executive Officer (in-game 1st of Many@Phoenix_Lord) of the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet. I would like to welcome you to the VKF and invite you to consider joining our Fleet. We are worldwide, and enjoy teaming with each other along with other fleets in space and ground teams, especially STFs.

We have a Fleet Bank with items that can upgrade your armament, shields, or other items. We devote time to making sure our Fleet Forum has good information and Intel on game mechanics, resource locations, mission tips and other good stuff to help our members progress in their career field and ranking in STO. We offer opportunities for leadership positions in both fleets for members interested in such. And we offer camaraderie and kinship as we forge through 2410 in STO.


If you wish to join the VKF, you simply need to post your intent in the Recruiting Center threads as soon as you can. By posting in the Recruiting Center, you will be applying for a commission in the VKF and when we accept your application and grant your commission, we will change your username to add a prefix [VKF], so the next time you log in (after applying), you should log in with the username [VKF]<your name here> (we will not change your password, and can?t view it anyway). Once you are a member of our Fleet, you will have access to much more of our Fleet forums.

Also, if you can include in your application your in-game character@handle so we can invite you to the Fleet inside of STO, that would help us get you integrated into the Fleet quickly. I am available on the forum to assist you with orienting you to the Fleet, and will be contacting you within the Fleet Forum.

If you are a diplomat from another Fleet and wish diplomatic status at the VKF, please visit the forum and post in the Foreign Relations sub-forum, so our Fleet Ambassador can grant you the appropriate access and status.

Feel free to email me directly, pm, or post in our forums if you need any additional information. I hope you will consider the VKF for your Fleet!

Regards,
Phoenix_Lord
High Executive Officer

Live Long and Prosper!

We see lots of posts by players who are looking for an active fleet. I'm guessing that what they are looking for could be one or more of the following:
  • people online when they are, who they can chat with in-game.
  • people online when they are, and there's a Ventrilo or TeamSpeak server so they can voice chat with them.
  • people online when they are, and available to team up for missions or PvP.

Just about all fleets will affirm that they are active, but they may be responding to only one or two of the above indicators, or with another rationale entirely. For example, they could be active on their forum (i.e., lots of recent posts and discussion going on), or they have a dedicated group into one or more specific activities (such as role-play).

Fleets work hard to maintain a good activity level. Some fleets try to maximize their in-game activity by focusing on one playtime range (or they may focus on one time zone, and you can assume that the evening hours in that time zone are the most popular playtime range).

Some fleets go for maximum numbers of members, so that there's a better chance there will be a good number of members online at the same time.

Some fleets focus on making sure there are a few dedicated and hardcore players online all the time, so there's always someone to talk to (think duty officer).

And some fleets encumber their members with check-in and/or participation requirements to help make sure there's always someone to talk to or team.

Of course, this is all quantitative, not qualitative. Here at the VKF, we focus on qualitative. We're not interested in being the largest fleet, or having the most players lined up for a photo shoot, or even fielding a ton of members for joint fleet actions, We are interested in attracting other gamers who share our core values, and who want to have friends like us. We may fly solo sometimes, we may fly together. We may chat with each other, we may remain silent. We do what each of us wants to at any point in time, and don't enforce specific activity on each other.

The VKF is a group of gamers who play mostly STO, who value logic and intellect in gameplay, and who treasure both diversity and the freedom to do what we want, when we want. There are enough of us so that there's usually someone to chat with, at least some parts of every day. There's often someone to team with, at least some parts of every day. And we have a TeamSpeak server for any whom wish to use it - when they want to. And we engage in a little light role-play now and then - when the mood strikes us.

We have an active forum at The Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet where we share information and game tips, chat on (we have a live chat box) about whatever we want, and in general, spend time together as friends. We often find ourselves chatting and posting on the forum, and also chatting and playing in STO at the same time. I find most days there are 3-5 people on during the daytime and evening hours (US), and often late into the night and early in the morning there's often one or two around.

So yes, I call that active, but it's likely not nearly as active as some of the fine, larger Fleets in STO. I'm not knocking them either; there are some great fleets out there! But we feel the VKF has found its niche, and we seem to continue to attract people who share our values, and our friendship pool is continuing to grow. We've been around since before Launch Day, and will be around...well perhaps forever is pushing it, but I can count at least a handful of members who will remain with us for as long as they can click a mouse button (myself included).

Before you make a choice for joining a Fleet, please take my advice and research your choices carefully. Make sure the fleet you join is the one you'll be happy with. Imo, a bad decision up-front can sour you on some of the best aspects of STO for a long time to come. You might as well take enough time to make an informed choice that fits you. If it happens to be the VKF, that's great! If it's another Fleet, then I'm sure we'll see you in the quadrant from time to time, we do quite a bit of joint fleet activity, and have alliances with lots of other Fleets in STO.

Regardless of where you go in STO, know that the VKF members will act honorably in battle (thanks to learning from the Klingons), will use our logic and intellect to control the power of emotion (thanks to learning from Earthlings), and will answer all Federation or Klingon hails & distress calls.

Live Long and Prosper!

With the arrival of Free2Play and Starbases we are looking to again grow the VKF. Why not join us and become a part of a truly great fleet.

With Fleet Starbases now here, you're going to want to join a fleet so that you'll have access to all the items you'll only be able to purchase in the Starbases. The bigger Fleets can offer you a better chance to get all of these things because their shops will be up and running quickly as they soar through the Tiers to get their Starbase up and fully operational. But the possibility exists that they run the risk of having more items to donate then there is a demand for. Which mean that you may not get all that many Fleet Credits you want to purchase things from the Stores in the Starbase.

However, within the VKF, you'll have the chance to donate much more to the Starbase, which also means that you'll have the ability to purchase more once the Starbase Stores are all up. We are working to have something in place so that everyone gets a good crack at Fleet Credit. If you want to get the most out of the Starbases and you're not a part of a Fleet just yet, then you'll want to take a serious, long look at the VKF. We might be small, but we feel that we can actually offer more out of our Starbase then the larger fleets; which is something that you'll literally be able to take to the bank.
