Greetings from The United Federation of Planets

My name is John Hathaway, Fleet Admiral for the UFP. After serving the Fleet as its leader since September 2002, I am extremely proud to continue to represent the UFP and all it has become.

The United Federation of Planets, {UFP}, is the oldest and largest pure Star Trek gaming fleet in operation today. The {UFP} has been operating since May 2002, and we are actively engaged in Star Trek Online as well as numerous other Star Trek PC game titles, offering a range of play styles from fast paced first person shooting, to PvE, to interactive role-play experiences and more.

In the 8+ years the {UFP} has learned a great deal about Fleet management, community spirit, and involving our members in a myriad of different ways for them to get the best possible experience. Some of our members have been playing and serving for a number of years now and we have formed strong working and friendly relationships. If you're looking for a stable, mature and friendly fleet, the UFP is what you seek.

We currently support:

Star Trek Online (Federation and Klingon factions supported)

Bridge Commander (Using the latest KobayashiMaru mod)

Elite Force (Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force) - Hosting our Own Dedicated Server

RPG-X 2.2 (Total Conversion Role-Play mod for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, more info here) - Hosting our Own Dedicated Server

Various Trek Classics (Legacy, the Armada series and the Starfleet Command series)

(Also looking forward to Star Trek Excalibur, more info here.)

Fleet Ethos & Summary

Dependable, accessible leadership and strong fleet involvement...

I believe our long term success has stemmed through sensible and reliable leadership from all those with responsibilities, from the highest ranks, down.
While we believe in the need for a military hierarchy we also believe it is imperative that the fleet is able to have a strong voice. So we actively encourage wide involvement in a myriad of fleet affairs. This is your fleet as much as it is mine. No one "owns" the UFP.

Casual and hardcore gamers welcome...

We are very much a clan which believes in the idea of "you get out, what you put in". If you're committed and dedicated to the UFP, you'll go far within it. There are numerous members who will attest to that.
However if you feel you're a casual player with limited time and perhaps many real life commitments, it's not a problem at all. All we ask is that you sign in at our monthly roll call, beyond that you are free to do as much or as little as you can/like. We understand real life comes first and we will not make any undue demands on our member base. Those with specific duties in the UFP simply need to hand them over temporarily in their absence.

Wide variety of play types, with a friendly and lively atmosphere...

We are a general fleet, in so much as we don't get bogged down by labels such as RP or PvP. We feel it is our duty to provide a wide ranging and flexible base upon which our members can enjoy a varied and fun organisation.
Our community is well known for its high spirit and willingness to help out, we are all classic Star Trek fans after all. We are constantly challenging our member base to get involved and bring about new ideas, and even lead their own projects under UFP support. So if this sounds like a fleet you want to be involved in, be sure to check us out!

In closing...

If you have any questions, wish to discover more about the UFP, or are interested in joining, drop by our Website and Forums. People are also welcome to drop into our TeamSpeak 3 server at, no password required.

Join the {UFP} today!

 United Federation of Planets Fleet:

I am T’Kir, the Chief Ambassador of the Shadow Dragon Fleet. We would like to convey our diplomatic interest in the United Federation of Planets Fleet. I unfortunately do not have Ventrillo or Team Speak 3, so I would prefer email, or communication via or STO. 

The Shadow Dragon Fleet has much to offer the UFP Fleet. We are both professional and casual, and engage in everything from just STO to all games and role-play. We accept all races, seeing as I am a female Vulcan, there are aliens, humans, and more. I encourage you to visit our site at I believe that this fleet is one of the most rewarding out there. I am a new member, and they equipped me with the best they could find to fit my light cruiser, and they did all this for free. We are willing to help out and everything, but we prefer a treaty in place to regulate proceedings. We offer 5 treaties, all being negotiable. I will list them here.


Alliance: Both Fleets agree to assist each other in matters offense, defense, intelligence, and commerce. Both fleets will assist each other with missions, share tips and tricks.  Also both fleets trade with each other and assist each other financially if possible. Fleets assist each other in Fleet actions in the game as well.  Both fleets also give the other fleet fair prices on any items.


Trade Pact:  This is when both fleets engage in commerce with other each other.  Fleets trade with each other and buy items from each other.  Both Fleets give each other fair prices on any and all items traded between the fleets.


Fair Resources Pact (FRP):  This allows two or more fleets that are doing STO to share resources fairly and give fair and honest prices. This pact means that fleets agree not to jump in and try and grab resources found after completing in game content or Missions done together.  Instead fleets agreeing to this will share all resources found in a fair way or will trade them to each other for a fair price.


Education treaty:  The Shadow Dragon Fleet Academy trains people from a particular fleet and in return that fleet compensates Shadow Dragon Fleet for the training of their members.


Mission Pact:  Both Fleets agree to assist each other in STO.  Items gained from joint missions are to be split fairly.   

If you have any questions, email me at, write to me on, or on STO I am available. You can also check with people on . Click on SDF Embassy to see the treaties there.

Pain is a thing of the mind. The mind can be controlled. -Spock
