106th Fleet Alliance Charter
Purpose: To define boundries, ethics, an overall responsibility to each other, to ensure certain tasks are met and to ensure the surviability of each fleet.
Preface: We believe the 106th Fleet to be one of the best fleets created here in Star Trek Online. Many claim to be the best fleet or that they have a quality fleet. Many brag about guilds spread out across mulitple MMO's. Some don't know the direction they are heading and some lack structure and longivity. Well here at the 106th Fleet, we do know where we are heading and what our goals are. If you are already in a great fleet or you are one of the command officers in your fleet and wish to make your's and our fleet even better, contact us to schedule a meeting.
Guidelines: The following basic Titles will explain a little more of what we expect from and alliance. These may change on a fleet to fleet alliance basis.
