The United Federation of Planets is one of the largest and oldest international gaming communities today, playing various Star Trek titles including Star Trek Online and Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force.

The United Federation of Planets has grown to become one of the largest and oldest Star Trek international gaming communities today, playing various Star Trek titles including Star Trek Online and Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force. The United Federation of Planets, or simply known as the UFP, was founded in May 2002, and was known as [FBN] (FlyByNight) for the first 3 months of its existence.

It started life as a small group of people, determined fans of the newly released Star Trek: Bridge Commander. Today, over 11 years on, we have a large and thriving community of like-minded players, playing a variety of Star Trek games and mods.

Over the years, we’ve picked up a diverse set of members from across the globe, ranging from countries in Europe, the Americas, Australia and Asia. Our member base is made up of an equally diverse set of ages and groups, all with a common goal, to enjoy Star Trek together as a community.

The UFP has a long and respected history, having made many allies over the years and establishing itself as an honourable community of Star Trek players. We believe in the principle of leading by example and our senior officers are selected carefully, to ensure this remains true at all times.


Community Staff

  • + For many years, we have increasingly encouraged and pushed on our principle mission as a community. At the UFP, we strive to create an all-encompassing environment, one where we actively seek creative and involving input, from all our members.

  • + The Federation Executive Office is tasked with a standing order, to craft a flexible base upon which our members can help build, create, and enhance a broader experience for the entirety of the UFP. By giving the ability for any member, new or old, high or low rank, to push forward with their own projects and endeavours, we create a richer community for all.

  • + As the UFP further matures, we can see the success in this mission. Members of all varieties have set their mark in a myriad of ways, improving the UFP beyond measure. We are steadfast in the commitment to continue with this endeavour, and together we will see in the second decade of the UFP by providing something totally unique.
