Fleet History

Fleet Five, the original name of the Meridian Fleet, was launched on March 30, 1998 - the third WeBB Fleet. The original Fleet Commander was B.J. Phillips, who was an STF WeBB member from almost the very beginning. The fleet's original ships were the USS Olympic, the USS Alliance, and the USS Andorian. The USS Futura joined the fleet shortly after the fleet's launch.

Since then, the Fifth Fleet of STF has undergone a lot of changes. A handful of bad nicknames, and a myriad of ship shuffles, swaps, decommissionings, and commissionings. Not to mention the multitude of Fleet Commanders and Assistant Fleet Commanders.

On May 23, 2010 the USS USS Entente, formerly the USS Kansas, was recommissioned the USS Brian A. Olinski in memory of Commodore Brian A. Olinski, who was actively involved in Fleet Five. This was done by Herr Edict #16

On February 26, 2014, pursuant to Bates Edict #9, the Fifth Fleet was officially renamed "The Meridian Fleet", it's long-recognized nickname. This name comes from the Fleets location on both sides of the border between the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Currently, Fleet Five has four ships, including the USS Brian A. Olinski which offers a unique carrier-style role-playing ship, and the USS Chernov which is STF's only "Abramsverse" Roleplay area.

On December 29th, 2018 the USS Saracen celebrated her 10 Year Anniversary since her Commission with a brand new paint job, carpet on the Bridge and fancy cup holders for the CO.
