    • New STO Personnel Officer:
      (From the STO Executive Officer Jestersmith)
      Chaszam:
      Chaszam has stepped up to join the Personnel team he is someone who attends in game events on a fairly regular basis and is known to some he only joined UFP in 2019 and has decided to step up and increase his activity in fleet so as such has volunteered to help out maintaining the fleet rosters for this we thank him.
    • 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. If you don't find something there that aligns with your interests, you can always fill out the volunteer interest form to express your desire for something specific to help our community grow. Use the bottom section of the form for that and make sure you treat it just as importantly as an application for an open position. Put in as many details as possible and thank you for your interest!

      If we do have more than 4 people, we'll split up into crews and each one will do their own thing and if we're lucky, we'll end up in the same lobby. Also let me know if you plan to play on PC or Xbox before the night so we know whether we'll be using an Xbox Party or Teamspeak to communicate.

      See you on the high seas.
