    General Orders

    General Order Number Description General Order 1 As the right of each sentient species to live in accordance with its normal cultural evolution is considered sacred, no Starfleet personnel, Federation citizen and/or representative may interfere with the normal and healthy development of alien life and culture.

    Recruitment Ad

    Developing Your Ad Subject Line This is, surprisingly, the most important part of any advertisement that you post about your game and is like the tagline of a movie poster or trailer. The subject line has to draw the attention of your reader because if they don’t like it or it doesn’t speak to them then no one is going to open the link and read your ad. While the name of your ship or station is important it isn’t important enough for the subject line. Example Subject Line Eternity Awaits Beyond the Final Frontier On the Verge of Peace… On the Brink of War… One Rebellion to Save Paradise…

    OOC Fleet history

    In 2001, as many groups started to focus more and more on the quantity of their games and were becoming less and less interested in producing quality stories, the 16th Fleet was created by a group of friends who wanted to explore the Star Trek Universe in a friendly and safe environment. Originally starting out on the TrekBBS, the group moved to its current home on Yahoo Groups in early 2002. Over the years we have seen many great games and we’ve made countless friends; many of whom have been with us since our earliest days. *Page need updating
