    EX ASTRIS, SCIENTIA
    FROM THE STARS, KNOWLEDGE

    Greetings All! Welcome to the first edition of the 2020 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. 2020 for me has had a busy start as with some of you I'm sure, so apologies for this getting out later then intended.

    COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

    • FAB STAFF ADDITIONS:
      A new Community Graphics Team Member has been announced with Solace:
      Solace is a familiar friendly face you've likely seen around the community. Already serving well, as the Special Forces Commander in STO. It's great to have another in this role, congrats and best of luck! Congrats

    • 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: DEFINITIVE EDITION:
      Tuesday, 14th January 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 custom 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.

    • COMPANY OF HEROES 2:
      Wednesday, 15th January at 1900 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Bedders Greetings fellow Generals!

      Tonight we team up to grind our opponents under our treads, shoot them out of the skies, and generally wreck their day.

    • KILLING FLOOR 1:
      Friday, 17th January at 2000 GMT/UFP; Infinity Zombies. Lots of them. Big ones, little ones. Armed and Dangerous. And all of them need to be stopped. It's Specimen Season!

      This event allows up to 6 players to work together to shoot zombies. Working as a team is a necessity, hence the requirement for Teamspeak (at least to be able to listen).

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Saturday, 18th January at 0200 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:
      Saturday, 18th December at 0300 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael Greetings fellow Commanders (or ex-Commanders)!

      This event is 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.

    • WARFRAME:
      Saturday, 18th January at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster Seapanda For the duration of this event, depending on the attendance and on site requirements, we will be able to farm those sweet Relics, unlock nodes and planets, hunt for Warframe parts, materials, blueprints and anything else we can think of. We can also set a weekly/monthly challenge on completing certain stages of the famous endless missions, advise on builds (the ones that know their stuff, not me), and even hunt down the big creatures of the plains.

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Saturday, 18th January 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!

    • LORD OF THE RINGS ONLINE:
      Monday, 20th January at 2030 GMT/UFP; Deputy Head of FAB Saelanna I have a kinship based on the Laurelin [EN-RP] server; the kinship is called the United Free Peoples and is open to any UFP member who wishes to join us as we complete deeds, level characters, complete group content, or just chill for a drink in the Prancing Pony.

      Everyone is welcome to bring whichever character they want to, and popular vote gets to decide what we set out to accomplish.

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Friday, 31st January at 2030 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace Build Discussions returns!

      This event will take place entirely on Teamspeak. It is an opportunity for community members to ask burning questions, improve their builds, share interesting new builds, theory crafting and much more!

      This event will run monthly starting this Friday 31st January 2020. Everyone is welcome to attend.
