    EX ASTRIS, SCIENTIA
    FROM THE STARS, KNOWLEDGE

    Greetings All! Welcome to the Tenth Edition of the 2019 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:
    • ben16
    • igowiththeflow
    • Ruffstorm

    COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS
    • SFA STAFF ADDITIONS:
      A new Recruitment Coordinator has been announced with Chris Wilkinson:
      Chris Wilkinson is a well known member within the UFP and has stepped up from his former RSO role to our RC role. He has been apart of the UFP since 2008 and has shown interest in helping our external recruitment efforts above and beyond his former duties. Congratulations and good luck in your new position Chris!

    • 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 II: Remastered:
      Tuesday, 19th November at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster Seapanda We will be playing the remake of the above named game, Age of Empires II: Remastered. 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, 21st 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, 22nd November at 1800 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 TREK ONLINE: (time slot 1)
      Friday, 22nd November at 1900 GMT/UFP; SFA Executive Officer Michael Once the tour is done feel free to join us for some TFOs/Heroics (depending on which game we're in).

      This event will be reoccurring each week in a series of "Tour The Holdings" events that will encompass all the current fleet holdings for the STO Federation, KDF & SWTOR Republic & Sith, one holding randomly selected per week.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC: (time slot 1)
      Friday, 22nd 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 TREK ONLINE: (time slot 2)
      Saturday, 23rd November at 0100 GMT/UFP; SFA Executive Officer Michael Once the tour is done feel free to join us for some TFOs/Heroics (depending on which game we're in).

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

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Saturday, 14th December at 2000 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace Special Forces will be hosting a TOS themed event in STO for members to attend, this will replace the regularly scheduled Special Forces Saturday themed event.

    Another great academy news Michael, I'm glad this has been continued again.

    One thing to say, what Michael about volunteering, it's definitely worth it if it's something you're interested in.
