Incoming Transmission - Hailing Frequency's Open

Note: This Proposal to all Fleets within The Community and at Hailing Frequency will act as pre-curser to follow on discussions in a effort to form a United Federation of Fleets

To: All Star Trek Gaming/Role Playing Fleets resident at Hailing Frequency
CC: Other Star Trek Gaming Sites interested in taking part and co-ordinating in events originating from this proposal at Hailing Frequency
Subject: Proposal for a United Federation of Fleets


What Is the United Federation of Fleets?

The United Federation of Fleets (referred to hereafter as UFF) is a concept similar in principle to the United Federation of Planets that was represented within Star Trek.

Star Trek Gaming Clans and Websites will join together within one alliance to promote peace and cooperation in the world of Star Trek Gaming.

Similar to the United Federation of Planets, resources and members could be shared between member Fleets. Rank and Positions would be recognized throughout the entire UFF, however, the internal processes and policies of each member will remain independent to each of the Member Fleets.

Key Points

  • Star Trek Clans and Guilds will unite in one alliance to form an entity made up of many smaller guilds
  • Member Guilds will need to meet the minimum criteria of the UFF in order to be accepted as a member
  • If an independent clan wishes to declare war on a member clan of the UFF, it would be the entire UFF that is responsible for assisting in the     
    defense of that clan.
  • In times of peace, friendly war games and exercises would be regularly scheduled within the UFF.
  • The UFF would then share resources to prepare for Tournaments between member UFF Fleets. At which point Following Championships
    would be held against other Fleets from other Fan Communities.
  • The Creation of the United Federation of Fleets Academy An internal education system whereby members can take courses and classes
    that have both in game and real world relevance.
  • The internal process of each member clan/guild will not be interfered with unless it is determined that these processes are in violation of the Federation Charter.
  • The Hailing Frequency Forums will serve as the home for this effort, with UFF Forums to be launched as soon as the charter is agreed upon.
  • A network of dedicated and permanent game servers will be setup, starting with the launch of a dedicated Bridge Commander server, with Elite Force, Starfleet Command, and other popular Trek Games Following Soon.

Goals

To realize a new era in Star Trek Gaming and encourage a peaceful unification for the benefit of Star Trek Gaming as a whole.

Star Trek Gaming Clans have notoriously been very hostile towards one another in the past we want to change this and truly realize the ideals of Gene Rodenberry and Star Trek Gaming.

Requirements

At least three charter guilds to sign up to the Federation and assist in the creation of the Federation Charter.

Follow-on member guilds/fleets must meet all of the following criteria for consideration into the UFF
   
  • Fleet must have some type of communication medium in order to facilitate mass communication needs to the Fleet (I.E: Team speak/ Ventrillo/ Alternative VOIP, Email, Chat room.)
  • Fleet must have a Website that represents its individual operation and will maintain itself as a sovereign entity.
  • A minimum of 5 members is required.

Register Your Clan or Websites Interest

If you are interested, in principle in signing to be a part of the UFF, or wish to find out more information and details and ask any questions, please, visit http://www.hailingfrequency.co.uk/boards/index.php?topic=498.0

Addendum

The idea behind the United Federation of Fleets (and Websites) is to encourage the peaceful co-operation between Star Trek Fleets, Guilds, and Websites on a level that has never before been seen.

Coming together under a Federation will allow trek gamers to realise the ideals of Star Trek in a way that has not been possible before, and furthermore, will allow increased fun in gaming, as in-cooperation, there will always be games servers and Federation Members online, at all times, from around the world.

This is in no way designed to infringe on the individual rights of member clans or websites.

We say - Why must rivalry and hostile competition exist between Fleets, Guilds or Websites when we can all work together to have a better time!

Ultimatly, we just want to have fun, and this represents a way to do it that has never been done before!

So I'm confused, you want to basically take all the fleet/guilds out there and roll them into one big Uber guild? dunno, sounds more like a Migraine aiting to happen than anything else.

Actually Falin, the organizational structure being proposed is not much different than what is observed by Starfleet, where the overall organization (Starfleet) operates with sectionalized fleets within (IE 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th Fleets during the Dominion War).

For the gaming community, this allows for more structured communication and cooperation between fleets, and works to hold down hostilites that can some times arise between fleets/clans/guilds. I have seen a similar system work within World of Warcraft, and the servers where overall organizational structures existed like the one being proposed here, hostility towards other guilds was severely reduced.

It also presents opportunites to small, growing guilds to find ways to share resources and in essence, "buddy up". For example, Lotus Fleet, the fleet that I am the XO of, is currently developing a full Academy cirriculum. We have invited others to use our Academy system once it is operational if they so choose, which allows them to get on their feet without having to worry about getting an Academy of their own started, which is no small task. (I would know, I used to be in charge of that task till I was promoted out of it.)
