    EX ASTRIS, SCIENTIA
    FROM THE STARS, KNOWLEDGE

    Greetings All! Welcome to the Seventh Edition of the Academy News! I am Michael Deputy Commandant of Starfleet Academy. This newsletter is an initiative from the Academy that is intended to keep you abreast of the latest news from across the United Federation of Planets.


    NEW MEMBERS
    We welcome the following new members who have joined (or re-joined) the UFP in the last two weeks:
    • GarakS31
    • lisburn
    • Sailorlovins
    • Kiddo
    • mattpedigo


    UFPAC
    The 53rd United Federation of Planets Awards Ceremony (UFPAC) was held on Saturday the 28th of September, at 21:30 UFP time.

    It was a phenomenal experience as always! If you missed it, you can watch it here. And if you prefer to read the list of award winners, you can find them here.

    Thank you Petrarch, SammyGM & Three Of Seven for hosting and directing and also Jordan for the video work and Andrew Gavrilov for the art work.

    Thank you all for your hard work to earn those medals and promotions, without you the UFPAC would not be possible!


    COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS
    • VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
      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.



    UPCOMING EVENTS
    The United Federation of Planets has a good number of events coming up! You can sign up for any of these events here:
    • AGE OF EMPIRES 2: HD:
      Tuesday, 1st October (today) at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster 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.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC:
      Wednesday, 2nd October at 1800 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael 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.

    • ELITE DANGEROUS:
      Wednesday, 2nd October 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.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC:
      Thursday, 3rd October at 2000 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Bedders Greetings fellow Champions!

    • STELLARIS:
      Friday, 4th October at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster 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.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC:
      Saturday, 5th October at 0100 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael Greetings fellow Champions!

    • STAR TREK ARMADA 3:
      Saturday, 5th October at 1900 GMT/UFP; Personnel Officer Lars2510 This event will be a multi-hour session of Sins Of A Solar Empire Rebellion, using the brilliant Star Trek Armada 3 modification by Stellar Parallax Studios. Star Trek Armada 3 is a total conversion mod, replacing all ships, research options, planet types, currencies etc. to convert the base game into what is arguably the best Star Trek strategy game experience ever created. You can play as the Federation, Klingon Empire, Romulan Empire, Cardassian Union, Dominion and the Borg.

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Saturday, 5th October at 2000 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace Greetings members! Welcome to Special Forces Saturday! Don't worry everybody is welcome to attend! This upcoming event, we'll be grinding out marks, accolades, doing Elite content or just grouping up for some jolly cooperation! (Praise the sun!)

      We'll be meeting on DS9 next the shipyard/exchange. Level 50+ character will be required! See you all there!

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Tuesday, 15th October at 2000 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace This event will be TNG themed using ships seen on screen during The Next Generation Series in the late 2360’s. There will be starship restrictions in keeping with the event theme. This event will replace the regularly scheduled Special Forces Tuesday event.

      You can read about the full list of restrictions HERE.


    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
