      Please help me welcome Starfleet Academy’s new Executive Officer, Michael:

His positive attitude and willingness to help others will make this position easy/natural work for him! I'd like to welcome him to the Staff Team and look forward to working with him! We wish him the best in his new role!

      Thank you STO Division for putting on this phenomenal month long event!

      Anomaly #1 - NX ESCORT REFIT [T6] - August 1st to August 11th
      Anomaly #2 - Temporal Destroyer [T6] - August 12th to August 21st
      Anomaly #3 - FREE T6 SHIP COUPON - August 22nd to August 31st
      ANOMALY AUGUST #2 - aceman67
      ANOMALY AUGUST #3 - RagnrockS7G

      This event is for anyone wishing to get a guided tour of all of the UFP Fleet Holdings, one holding per month. After the tour, we will also play some TFOs together for anyone that would like to go through them on easy, that may have never or rarely done them. With so many holdings, it's easy to lose track of what each one contains, so this event hopes to handle that. These are more so geared for new members within the community, however all members are very welcomed to attend! The first returning one, is posted below, in the upcoming events section. This event will not only go through STO holdings but also TOR holdings.

      The UFP would not be the place it is today without our volunteers who selflessly sacrifice their time to help out. Check out the currently open volunteer positions, and how to apply for one, here.

    The United Federation of Planets has a good number of events coming up! You can sign up for any of these events here:
      Tuesday, 3rd September at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster Officer Seapanda We will be playing the remake of the above named game, Age of Empires II: HD Edition. There are several mods that are currently being used in the game, and new members who join the event will be able to either subscribe to the mods (graphical mods) or we will revert back to the default game.

      A customer defense map is currently being used, where all players face off against increasingly more difficult AI. For the time being, the teams will be locked, to prevent people like me turning on you lot Smile Later on, as this event grows, we will ask for feedback and look into different maps and game modes.

      Wednesday, 4th September at 1930 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Bedders This is a weekly get-together for anyone who currently plays, or wishes to start playing, Elite: Dangerous.

      We may form wings if we're close enough to each other but primarily this is just an organised time to all play the same game and share knowledge & ask questions of each other, or to showcase our favourite ships to satisfy our vanity!

      There is a discussion thread for Elite: Dangerous is available here.

      Thursday, 5th September at 2000 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Bedders Greetings fellow Champions!

      Tonight we perform one or more dangerous missions to aid the Galaxy in it's glorious fight!

      How many missions is determined by the galaxy's most wealthy, as they send urgent requests for help from all corners of the galaxy.

      We may be up against members of the Hutt Cartels, smugglers, pirates, or a large faction such as the Republic or Empire!

      It is hoped that all attending will make it back in one piece, but as ever - last messages to loved ones will be passed across should you fall in battle.

      Friday, 6th September at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster Officer Seapanda This event will be a multi-hour session of Stellaris. We will be starting a new Multiplayer game and will be playing cooperatively against AI opponents. If you wish to design your race please make sure you are there before the official start time so that you have plenty of time to customise.

      Unlike the previous Stellaris events that we hosted, this one will contain a plethora of mods, all maintained in a collection that you can find on the link below. I strongly advise that you download this collection well before the event starts, as it may take some time. Simply go to the collection and subscribe to it. All mods will be downloaded and installed accordingly.

      Saturday, 7th September at 2000 GMT/UFP; Head of Star Trek Online Bridger Greetings Everyone!

      Special Forces allows you to play the game with your fellow Fleet and Armada mates and experience Advanced and Elite content like never before.

      It is your opportunity to ask questions, learn new tips and tricks and get the rewards you are looking for.

      Special Forces is open for everyone and we welcome everyone and our intention is it to be a pleasant experience for every participant.

      We play together, we laught together, we fight together and we win together.

      Friday, 13th of Steptember at 2100 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Michael Do you feel a little bewildered by all the various offerings at the fleet holdings in STO? Are you new to the game or have you returned from a lengthy absence? Join us on Friday 13th September at 21:00 UFP (UK) time for a tour of the Fleet Colony World, an opportunity to see what's on offer at the UFPs fleet holdings. Once the tour is done feel free to join us for some PvE queues.

      Saturday, 14th September at 2100 GMT/UFP; Head of Community Development Petrarch The community meeting is an excellent opportunity for all members to witness the inner workings and discussions and is also a great chance for you to get YOUR voice heard. Each community meeting that has taken place in the past has been a huge success and we look forward to a great turnout. Even if you don't have a microphone, your questions and feedback will still be read and addressed, what you have to say is important to us.

      Myself, SFC and FEO very much look forward to your attendance, but if you can't make it, don't worry, minutes will be available to everyone afterwards.

    It is highly recommended that you keep one eye on the events page whenever you visit the site because random events are being added all the time!

    Thanks for reading and we’ll see you around the galaxy! Live Long and Prosper
