    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:

    • COMPANY OF HEROES 2:
      Wednesday, 12th February 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.

    • STAR WARS THE OLD REPUBLIC:
      Thursday, 13th February at 1900 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.

    • KILLING FLOOR 1:
      Friday, 14th February 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:
      Friday, 14th February at 2100 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, 15th February 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.

    • STAR TREK ONLINE:
      Saturday, 15th February at 2000 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace Greetings members! Welcome to Special Forces Saturday! Don't worry everybody is welcome to attend!

      Attention all Starfleet Personnel, there have been numerous incursions by multiple races across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. All ships are ordered to assist in repelling hostile vessels and assist in ground operations.

      All vessels to maintain Red Alert until further notice and warp speed restrictions have been lifted.

      Greetings members! Its time for the latest installment of the Special Forces Themed Event! This time we're going back in time to the Early 24th Century (2305-2363). We'll be using early Pre-TNG ships.

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