State of the Fleet - December 2015
Seasons greetings fellow Captains. Welcome to this months “State of the Fleet” for December 2015. As the end of the year rapidly approaches and we are down to single digit days remaining til Christmas. Lets set back, have a nice cool egg nog, and engage our viewscreen’s.

FACEBOOK

As we approach the end of the year, facebook posts are starting to slow down as everyone takes a collective breathe after a very interesting year. However our fellow captains are still posting very interesting pictures, videos, and after tib-bits on our facebook page.

Admiral Ieon posted a very interesting picture including some of our Next Generation favourites. I have to admit, when i saw this, it did make me smile.

Android Phone

Not to be out-done, Admiral Will posted his own version from The original series. I have to admit, it wouldnt surprise me if a scene like this had happened in TOS.

TOS christmas

Please, continue to send in your screenshots, videos, and stories about Star Trek and Star Trek online. This Facebook page is for our community, and to share your stories. I always enjoy seeing what happens on this page.

Ieon Productions

Admiral Ieon has produced several videos this month. 1 video of a PVP training run he did with several fleet mates of the 102nd Fleet. Check out the video below.

102nd Fleet – Startup Video

I would like to again thank Admiral Ieon for all his work with these videos.

101st Fleet

Also, thanks to Admiral Ieon, 101st Fleet has a new fleet logo. After Admirals Will raised the idea of updating the fleets logo, we decided to engage Admiral Ieon in the redesign. Using the 102nd Fleet logo as a template, and with a few colour changes and additions, the following was decided on.

101st Fleet Logo

Thanks to Admiral Ieon for the redesign. In General news, 101st Fleet continues to go along quite happily. There have been no other major news items or changes.

Cryptic Game News

December 2015

As we head into Christmas, Cryptic starts to slow down with releases, changes, or additions to the game. That isn’t to say that there isn’t fun times going around, as christmas in Star Trek Online always brings one thing 🙂

Q's Winter wonderland

Its that time again. From December 4th through to January 15th, Q’s winter wonderland hits Star Trek Online. There have been several additions this year. Including a in-instance gingerbread village, new christmas themed weapons and outfits.

Elachi Sensar T6 Command

Equator Alliance

Equator Alliance continues to remain strong. It has been a very good year for the alliance, with the release of the armada system midway through the year helping the alliance come closer, and allowing us to help each other out alot easier.

Please remember that there is a chat channel ingame called “Equator” for the alliance. If you haven’t been invited to the channel, please let me know, and I will send you an invite.

Please also remember to be on your best behaviour in the channel, as you are representing the 101st and 102nd Fleets.

Final Notes

Well, what can I say. 2015 has been a very interesting year game wise, as well as fleet wise. We took the big step of launching a new fleet to sit alongside of 101st Fleet. 101st Fleet Delta Squad (now called 102nd Fleet) was born out of the Delta Recruitment event.

The iconian war ended dramatically, thrusting us into a unknown frontier of the games story after 5 years of them hiding in shadows, and the aftermath of the war.

Star Trek Online has changed as well, with new events, alot more featured episodes and alot of changes to mechanics from the past, moving towards the future.

Well, i believe I will leave this as my last part of this posting.

“On behalf of 101st Fleet Senior Fleet Command, I would like to thank all our fleet members. You have made 2015 a year of new allies, friends, and exploration for the 101st fleet in Star Trek Online.

101st Senior Fleet Command would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year. We hope for all of you to return safety and to look forward to the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the sixth anniversary of Star Trek online, and the great unexplored frontier of 2016. Let’s see what’s out there.”

That is it for me folks. I will see you in 2016, on January 16th when we will begin a new years “State of the Fleet”.

Merry Christmas, and a happy new year to everyone.
