We didn't finish yet anyway...
We lost Verrona and Jarret when we were storming the base.
We have to finish this another time.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

Never mind. That stuff happens. And it isnt a total loss, since we can bypass the battle for the spatial rift next time. But we have to start over with the base storming of course.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

We've been offered an official Alliance with the Grand Imperial Fleet (in which I have 2 alts, one one each faction). So some ties are already there.
Some of them have already run the odd mission with us and vice versa.

Now what would an official alliance mean for us.

It basically means they will shoot you last if you encounter them in a PvP match

Kidding aside, this might very well happen, but mostly it would mean an official channel to buff up STF teams short of a team member or two.
Access to a shared chat channel you can participate in.
Also access to their Vent voice chat, which is more reliable and easier to set up then Steam chat. (The reason we don't have one, is that it costs money.)

So lots of benefits for us. Of course it will be appreciated if we help them out on occasion. They are a lot bigger then we are though and have a bigger pool of players to draw from.

Since I won't decide this I'm putting it up to a vote.

Please share your thoughts and tell me if this is to something you'd like or if you rather stay by ourselves.

Of course this doesn't mean you have to have an alt in their fleet (I just do, because my KDF alt needed a fleet at some point and it sort of happened).

Unless I'm missing something, doesn't really seem like there's a downside here, so why not?

Well on the Fed side making friends is kind of our and on the Klingon side more allies means killing more Earther scum.

So we should go ahead with this alliance.

Well the downside is the reason for each fleets existence. The Armada was created for members of this board while GIF is a platform for all sorts of players. Which isnt bad in itself, but tends to let their administration recruit, let's call it proactively, to justify their further existence.

So it wouldn't surprise me if they at some point propose a merge, which would pretty much end us.

But if we are confident of our identity here, there is no reason not to go for it.

So long as we can maintain our identity, i see no problem with this at all.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

I am all for it as well. I have no fear for our identity. Its not like they can do a hostile takeover. If they ask for a merge we can say no thank you. I do think that being allied will give us good benefits from a team building perspective though. It will be nice to have a group of people who are inclined to say yes if we invite them on a mission. And it means we might get asked to help out too.
Sounds good all around.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

I haven't been very active in the fleet (hope to be moreso in the future!) but if my vote is worth anything, I think the alliance sounds like a good idea.

Not yet. Although Im not the only one allowed to set something up. All Officers can do that, certainly Senior Officers. *hint-hint*

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

House Trek BBS is up and running on KDF side.
It has existed for awhile now but with just the founding members not logging in nothing happened there.
Anyone who has also a KDF toon can notify me, Aelius, Trek or Hartzilla for an invite.
It`s an interesting fleet roster. So far we consist among others of a Borg Klingon (my toon named Pi of 3), an Altani (sp?) (an original alien of Aelius), a Gorn and a Founder (even with shapeshifting powers ).
