    EX ASTRIS, SCIENTIA
    FROM THE STARS, KNOWLEDGE

    Greetings All! Welcome to the Ninth 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:
    • keith90
    • Walter



    COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS
    • FNS STAFF ADDITION:
      A new Staff Writer is born Chris Wilkinson:
      Chris Wilkinson should be a member you are already familiar with having been a member of the UFP since 2008 Shocked. Already serves the community well as a RSO, has undertaken the task of creating phenomenal news articles. Good luck with your new posting Chris!

    • SFA STAFF ADDITIONS:
      A new Recruit Support Officer has been announced with Sunfire:
      Sunfire started his UFP journey in 2015. This will be his first CL4 position and he brings his former fleet experiences to the table as a new RSO. I'm looking forward to work with you, best wishes in your role!

    • 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, 5th November at 1800 GMT/UFP (In Progress); 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:
      Thursday, 7th November 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.

    • STELLARIS:
      Friday, 8th November at 1800 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.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC: (time slot 1)
      Friday, 8th November at 2000 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael Greetings fellow Commanders (or ex-Commanders)!

      This event has been re-purposed to help those active to get their weekly (daily) grinds done together! It's a lot more enjoyable to get the weekly stuff done together to grind out your reknown to 300 on multiple characters, if you're playing with friends.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC: (time slot 2)
      Saturday, 9th November at 0200 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael Greetings fellow Commanders (or ex-Commanders)!

    • STAR TREK ARMADA 3:
      Saturday, 9th November at 1800 GMT/UFP; Event 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, 9th November 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: (time slot 1)
      Friday, 15th November at 1900 GMT/UFP; SFA Executive Officer Michael Do you feel a little bewildered by all the various offerings at the fleet holdings in STO?
