Join the fight!

Fleet Six is the Fleet at the edge of the universe, the Black Fleet. Our home is a black rock and there are many enemies out here that want to take Starfleet out of the equation. But we won't let them, no matter if they are Vren, Breen, Ancients, Elders or the evil mastermind that once wore pips on his collar. Not in the present, not in the past. We stand united in our resolve and although our hearts also have different shades of grey, we won't let the darkness win. Do you want to join the fight?
