Attention on Deck!
Welcome to Alpha Squadron! This Fleet was created on the 29th Of January 2010, the 1st day of Early Access.
We are an international Fleet and we welcome new members of all abilities!
VENT - Myself and @MYRON_COLE have spent easily over $200 setting up a 25 man Vent server, so it would be nice to see more faces on the server... If you don't know how, check this out... http://www.ventrilo.com/tutorial.php Email an Officer in-game or check the Fleet info tab for our log-in details. So please can everyone log onto Vent. If you're too shy to talk just log on and listen :P
STFs - Daily STFs (Infected, The Cure, Khitomer Accord and Undine Terradome) are held spontaneously, we've done 600+ so for. Email @CMDRZORPRIME or @BILLY-RAY if you need any raids organised
PVP - We have weekly informal PVP every Sunday and a weekly league. These are organised by @CMDRZORPRIME and @RADDICALRABBIT
DONATIONS - Thank you to all the Fleet members who have very generously donated credits to the bank. We have had over 110 million credits donated since the 25/5/10. This will be put to good use when Fleet stuff becomes available. Feel free to donate items and cash you don't want into our tabs :)
RECRUITMENT - We hit capacity on the 3/7/10 and we have been removing inactive players since then. Feel free to invite people into the Fleet. The more the merrier! If you see anyone without a FED or KLG Fleet please feel free to invite them in! Our Sister Klingon Fleet is called "Blade of Kahless" so feel free to add your toons there too!
QUITTING - If you know you are not going to play STO please drop me an email or move your toons into our alt Fleet, "Alt-pha Squadron." Ask in chat for an invite. Inactives will be removed on a regular basis to ensure we stay active! Also feel free to donate your items if you know you won't be coming back :)
FLEET CHAT - We don't use Fleet chat anymore and we have created our own chat channel. This will allow communication across all servers and Fleets (FED or KLG or on in Alt-pha Squadron)
To set up chat...
1) Right click on the word "Chat" at the top left of your chat box
2) A window should appear "Chat Configuration"
3) Click on the word "Channel" at the top
4) Enter the Name "Alpha Squadron" in the Join/Create box (without the " ") and click join
5) To use the "Alpha Squadron" chat channel, click on the bottom left of the chat box (where it says Local, Zone etc) and pick the Alpha Squadron channel.
So please don't use Fleet, use the Alpha Squadron chat channel
Thank you for joining Alpha Squadron, I'll see you out there!
AND FINALLY - Our Fleet was featured on Germany's #1 online games magazine. Google "buffed.de special task force Khitomer" and click on the 1st link :D
