The United Federation of Planets have disbanded as of August 2011. Separating into Federation Command and Starfleet Tactical Response

 

The [UFP]United Federation of Planets was formed in 2005 by the union of two great veteran fleets, Federation Command [FC] and the Federation [FEDS], with the desire to make the biggest and best trek-only fleet in the entire community. UFP supports as many trek games as practical and will certainly adopt future Star Trek games. UFP was formed under the precepts of fair game play and equal opportunity. Every cadet who enters the Fleet may one day become Fleet Admiral if he or she is of the right material, or at least go very far in the clan if they present themselves as capable and willing officers. We have many Veteran officers with heaps of experience that are willing to help you develop any aspect of leadership, gaming, diplomacy, or even role-playing. This means that if trek is your thing, you'll feel right at home here. Starting to get interested now? I hope so. Below is a summary of what we have to offer:

  • Increased enjoyment of online gaming
  • Trek-only atmosphere and member pool
  • Diverse fleet with people from all around the globe
  • Military-style command structure
  • Stable Fleet structure

Council of Admirals 

The United Federation of Planets Council of Admirals (hereinafter: Council) has been appointed the highest authority in the Fleet by the Constitution. This authority is superior to that of any ranked officer, the office of Fleet Admiral, and the Executive Committee of UFP. It consists of either five or six officers hand-picked by the Fleet Admiral (who chairs the council) to assist in the legislative and command duties the Fleet requires for its survival. Each councilor occupies one seat on the council. The Council is a democratic body which discusses and votes on a range of issues pertinent to the well being and integrity of the Fleet. This includes, in addition to command-related decisions, the creation, destruction and modification of Fleet policy. Most importantly, the council reserves the sole right to modify the UFP Constitution, which is the legislative foundation of the Fleet on which all policy is based. Only a unanimous ruling from the Council has sufficient authority to modify this document.
