Want to do more for the club? Well, there's some open positions being advertised in Command - as of now we need FComm-4, -5, and -6, and the Academy needs an AFLO. The details are in Command - what are you waiting for?Submitted by Anthony Martin on 3 August 2010 - 1:28pm.
Some of you may be surprised at seeing this on the front page, in the newsfeed. This is a little note for all of those who don't read Command. Reading Command is *important.*
For those who may not pay attention to the Election ship and/or Command (only 41.8% of the members at the time voted in the previous election), I'm Thomas Bates, your President. I ran a campaign repeatedly saying that I was going to be blunt, direct, and brutally honest. This is the time for it. I urge all of our members to read Command on a regular basis and participate in our government. Command is not there for the same ten people to bicker back and forth endlessly, it's there for the club at large.Submitted by Thomas Bates on 28 February 2014 - 10:01pm.
As you may have noticed, the sidebar navigation has changed slightly. Fleets now go by their actual names, and not their numbers. So:
Fleet 1 = The Foremost Fleet
Fleet 2 = The Great White Fleet
Fleet 3 = The Pioneer Fleet
Fleet 4 = The Forceful Fleet
Fleet 5 = The Meridian Fleet
Fleet 6 = The Black Fleet
This comes as a result of the Fleet Removal Discussion which started back in January (http://star-fleet.com/webb/node/601265) and produced widespread support for this change. It was actioned last night in Edict #9: http://star-fleet.com/webb/node/612009Submitted by Thomas Bates on 27 February 2014 - 12:30pm.

Any questions, let me know.

Good afternoon Ladies and Gents. You are probably wondering why the USS Discovery, one of our awesome Academy ships would need your help and why it would be listed under news. Here's the skinny folks.Submitted by Amber DeSadier on 24 February 2014 - 6:24pm.
Greetings all members of STF, presently the Engineering Department has opened talks to create a set of guidelines for the use of transwarp (and possibly slipstream) drives for use by GMs in a sim. These talks will be on going and have no real end date at present.Submitted by Robert Archer on 21 February 2014 - 11:33am.
We are beginning a discussion on Fleet 4's history and how we want to move forward with identity for the next few weeks. Please feel free to join in and help shape our future or to share your knowledge of the past. All members welcome and cadets are encouraged as well.
First thread can be found here: http://star-fleet.com/webb/node/609885

Are you a currently active or in training GM? Looking for new toys you want to add to your plot box? Then chime in on your pro or con thoughts or ideas for the EDept's idea to fashion a guide for GMs to use transwarp/slipstream within sims! With discussions open until Feb 16th 2014
