Hey, Thingol - I've sent you a PM in-game requesting to join the Armada - haven't joined a fleet yet as I wanted to join one with Trek-minded players, rather than the usual MMO crowd!
(That is, of course, if the rest of the fleet doesn't mind me cramping their style - "there goes the neighbourhood" and all that...!)
Btw, what time zone are you in? I'm in the UK, so I'm using GMT/UTC, and playing in mostly-sociable hours (although I've been known to let off some steam after doing a late gig, around 3-4am!
) - in case you're ever up for some PvP and need someone playing at more Euro-centric hours! I know what you mean about the timings issue - with so many STO players being based in the USA, it's noticeable that game traffic spikes by the end of the day (going by GMT, obviously).
