There has been multiple happenings on the 101st Fleet Facebook page, with many posters posting screenshots, stories, videos and general happens.

Cryptic Game News
There has been alot of news in relation to Cryptic and Star Trek Online. We are now full throttle into the 5th Anniversey. Please remember that the anniversey event has been extended to March 2nd 2015, so you can use that time to get the necessary materials to get the event ship, the Kobali Cruiser.
Two weeks ago, Cryptic released their command ships packs and super packs for all factions. These ships are battlecruisers that have several stations that allow you to slot command specialisation BOFF abilities. Please check the below llink for information regarding the ship stats.
Several Days later they released a Dev blog on the art of the command ships and how they came to be, you can check out the dev blog below.

New Equator Team Loot Rules
There has been some changed in the rules regarding Equator Alliance lead events or STF’s, please see the below information from Bunny, the Special Service Squadron Ambassdor.
By this point I’ve spoken to most Alliance Ambassdors and the overwhelming vote is to switch to Need or Pass. That will make it a lot easier on team leaders and fleet leaders, and team leaders will still have the option to call for Greed or Pass if they choose. (However, if a team leader calls for Greed or Pass, Equator Admins will not get involved if any problems occur. If someone is a bad teammate, stop taking them on your team).
Please let your members know that the change will go into effect after maintenance is over on the 29th of this month. It is very important members are told before this change occurs. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Next months “State of the Fleet” will be posted on March 21st 2015.
I hope everyone has enjoyed this edition of “State of the Fleet” for the month of January. I hope to see you all ingame. Until then, Final Notessafe travels and live long and prosper.
