106th Fleet's Goal: TO MAKE YOU THE BEST STAR TREK ONLINE PLAYER YOU CAN BE! "Knowledge is power!"
William T. Riker
Can't be wrong!
The 106th Fleet...
We are a tight-knit family within the online galaxy of "Star Trek Online". Our most defining characteristic is that we all love Star Trek and this is where we choose to come together to share that love.
We are serious at times, we are funny at times. We argue, converse, laugh, and discuss. We have some pretty interesting conversations and deliberations.
We love to have fun as a fleet. We know how to PvE and have members who are VERY GOOD at what they do in the "Player vs. Environment" realm. We aren't much up on the "die hard" side of PvP. We do PvP occationally but it is on the very casual side of it.
We are an adult focused fleet. We can be clean minded one minute and dirty minded the next. You just never know what is going to happen next with us!
The 106th Fleet is not a "democracy". The final decisions of any action concerning the fleet and it's members are that of the Fleet Founders. This does not mean that we don't listen to our members. All ideas are considered but not all ideas are adopted.
We are a smaller sized fleet. In the 106th Fleet, you won't feel like just a number as many of the larger fleets make most feel. You won't be "lost through the cracks" here.
We are always looking for new and seasoned Star Trek Online players to join our ranks. The only way you will know if you are a good fit is to give us a try and just click the "Apply To Fleet" button on the left. You know you want to! We look forward to hearing from you.
