    Greetings All! Welcome to the sixth 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.

    We welcome the following new members who have joined (or re-joined) the UFP since the last edition:

    The 56th United Federation of Planets Awards Ceremony (UFPAC) will be 27th of June, at 21:30 UFP time.

    This event is held roughly every three months and awards members with rank advancements and medals which are awarded for various achievements. To get a promotion and/or a medal you need to be active on the forums or in game, attending events and participating in forum discussions. Then you stand a good chance of getting noticed and receiving a nomination for an award from one of the CL6, CL5 or CL4 members of the UFP.


      Silek "We have been on the look out for a new Editor for FNS, after several candidates we are pleased to announce that Silek will be joining the Editing team. Silek has shown a continued commitment to the department previously as a Staff Writer and we know that with Silek as an Editor, FNS will remain strong and stable as it has been previously. Please check out the articles that will be released in the future to see the amazing work Silek will do for the department in his new role." (From Infinity)

      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.

    The United Federation of Planets has a good number of events coming up! You can sign up for any of these events here:

      Saturday, 6th June 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!

      Saturday, 6th June at 2200 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Michael Greetings fellow Commanders (or ex-Commanders)!

      This event will help our guild rank up, by us completing our personal conquest goals together! It's a lot more enjoyable to get the weekly stuff done, if you're playing with friends.

      Sunday, 7th June at 2100 GMT/UFP; Personnel Officer Jestersmith Greetings members! Welcome to Special Forces Sunday! This event is open to everyone to come along and enjoy some jolly cooperation! Its time to save the Galaxy!

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

      Tuesday, 9th June at 1900 GMT/UFP; Event Officer Chris Wilkinson We'll be continuing the save game from last week to see where we end up from there.

      I look forward to seeing you there!

      Thursday, 11th June at 1900 GMT/UFP; Commanding 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.

      Friday, 12th June at 1900 GMT/UFP; Commanding Officer Bedders This event will be a multi-hour session of Stellaris. We will be starting a new Multiplayer game following the Federation Update 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.

      I look forward to seeing you there!

      Saturday, 13th June 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 and TOR? Are you new to the game or have you returned from a lengthy absence? Join us at for an opportunity to see what's on offer at the UFPs fleet/guild holdings. Once the tour is done feel free to join us for some TFOs/Heroics.

      This event will be reoccurring each month 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 event.

      Saturday, 13th June at 2000 GMT/UFP; Special Forces Commander Solace Greetings members!
      Its time for another Special Forces Themed Event. This time we're revisiting the The Next Generation era. There is an unusual build up of activity along the Romulan side of the Neutral Zone, massive spikes in tachyons have been detected which could indicate the movement of cloaked Romulan Ships. For more information about this themed event, you can click HERE for more a more detailed breakdown.

      Saturday, 13th June at 2100 GMT/UFP; Head of Community Development Petrarch We have reached our second UFPAC month of the year, and that means the second community meeting too! The meeting will take place on June 13th, so please come along and attend if you are able.

      If you have any questions or comments, then this is a great chance to bring them forward, or just listen in on what all of the divisions and departments have been doing recently! If you cannot attend but have a question you want to ask, you can send me a PM with the title "Community Meeting Question" and I'll make sure it’s asked during the Open Floor discussions. You will also be able to PM during the event if you have any last minute questions or points.

    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
