++ PRIORITY ONE MESSAGE INCOMING ++

Greetings my friends,

now on the 4th Anniversary of THE 300 we look back on a long history in Star Trek Online, being one of the first fleets in game we are still a force to reckoned with - and most important: we are on a good course for a prospering future.

It was about 2.5 years ago when I was called to step in Giles' footsteps as Fleet Marshal of THE 300. I had two primary objectives on my agenda. First i wanted to improve the inner fleet communication across all ranks, thus opening up our community for new members and ideas and secondly I wanted to make sure that we will be able to take full advantage of the (new) holding system. Today we see those ideas implemented, our fleet has as much members as never before and our fleet holdings are nearly completed on FED while members move between ranks more freely.
This was no easy task and all of you have shared the burden in good and bad times, it's safe to say that we would not be at this point if we would not have supported each other in every possible way. Without all your support, advice and suggestions the fleet's development in the last 2 years would not have been possible. Thank you all very much for your endless dedication, loyality and support. Especially my fellow FOCCOM members who supported me in every possible way!

Seeing my agenda now completed, this makes it the perfect time for me to step down from my position as Fleet Marshal and transfer to the Fleet Advisory Council. It was a honour to serve among such fine women and men! However that does not mean I will be 'gone' - in contrast: expect me to be still around to join you with missions and support you with anything.

THE 300 is one of the finest fleets in game and it deserves the best leadership it can get, I feel it is a perfect opportunity for our fleet's next step into a glorious future. I am very happy to announce that the Fleet Operational and Tactical Command has decided in an unanymous vote on THE 300's new leadership.

I congratulate our new Fleet Marshal Niazra (@tomaito1) and our new Vice Marshal Mabel (@NoraaNeab)! Please give both all your support as you did for me, both already did a great job at their former TACCOM positions and have kept the fleet running in the last months.

Also I would like to invite you all to the first All Hands Fleet Meeting under the new leadership of Fleet Marshal Niazra and Vice Marshal Mabel on the 15th of March 2014 at 02:30pm LA / 05:30pm NY / 10:30pm UK / 11:30pm GER. Details will be announced on the website and in-game event tab soon.

Again I would like to thank you all for making THE 300 the awesome, friendly and prospering fleet it is! I wish Niazra and Mabel all the best for their new positions, please help them to achieve the best for our community.

Kind Regards

Mary Lene Drake

Greetings Captains,

welcome to our last newsletter for 2013. While Star Trek Online had it's best year so far, also THE 300 has had an awesome year - and more important, we are looking forward into a bright future. Being among the oldest fleets in Star Trek Online we will celebrate our 4th Anniversary Event next year too! Before handing over for the news I wish you all a happy holiday season!

State of the fleet
We have agreed on a significant change to the Chain of Command. To ensure the fleet's smooth running we created a new rank 6 to assist the Fleet Operations Central Command [FOCCOM] with daily requests and tasks. This new rank is named Tactical Fleet Command [TACCOM] and has several new positions associated with specific duties and responsibilities. These new positions are Deputy Director of S.W.O.R.D., Deputy Director of Section 31 and Quartermaster.


Please find the full information on our Chain of Command here!


Promotions
I am happy to congratulate Quartermaster NoraaNeab and Deputy Director of S.W.O.R.D. Tomaito on their new positions in TACCOM. Also Envoy Drahkgoran, being a veteran of countless battles is promoted to Commander of Section 31. Last but not least we welcome S.W.O.R.D. Operative Byron into our ranks now as full member.

THE 300's Holiday Event
We invite all our members, allies and friends to join us on our holiday event party! The party is scheduled for the 28th of December 2013, at 02:30pm LA / 05:30pm NY / 10:30pm UK / 11:30pm GER. Among having a lot of fun and a great party we will offer several funny games to participate in. Cebear's TrekTrivia, Ice Skating Rallye, Roll-The-Key and Casual PvP will just be some great chances to win not only loads of glory but also some special prizes. Stay tuned...

Website
Our website www.The300.net is getting a partial make-over. We agreed on several new additions that are intended to make it easier for new members to access important information on the fleet and game. One of this will be a FaQ list on which we still need help - please input your questions and ideas in this thread! Also several other pages will get a face-lifting, already updated is the Chain of Command, still on our agenda are the Fleet's History, Fleet Uniform and the Code of Conduct pages.

All Hands Fleet Meeting January 2014
It's my pleasure to invite every fleet member to our first all hands fleet meeting in the new year. Among discussing important topics related to fleet and game we will talk about our general strategy for 2014. Of course this is also a perfect opportunity to apply for a promotion to S.W.O.R.D. Operative and to get to know your fellow fleet mates. You can add topics to the draft agenda in this thread here, also there will always be an open forum at the end of each meeting to voice your suggestions, comments or concerns. The next Fleet Meeting is scheduled for the 18th of January 2014, please visit the in game Fleet Event Tab for your personal local starting time and use the RSVP-Button to signal your attendance.

I am wishing You all a happy and relaxed holiday - we will see us at the party!

Clear Skies Captain!

Greetings Captains,

the new Season 8: The Sphere is now live for several days. I am happy to report that we have managed to requisition one of the mysterious Spires for our fleet's use. Engineering teams are preparing the first major upgrades as we speak. Especially at a later stage the Spire will allow access to some interesting new consoles and gear. The Dyson Sphere offers some nice events like the persistent ground combat zone or a death-star-like attack on the huge Voth Fortress ships. Team up with some fleet mates and see all the new wonders for yourselves.

State of the fleet
As new members continue to flock to our cause we agreed on changing our AWOL-Rule, that means that from now on members will be removed from the in game fleet roster if they have been not online for six or more month. This drastic measure is intended to make sure that we have enough room for new and active members. In case you find yourself removed and want to get active again just drop us a line to get reinvited.

Promotions and Demotions
Congratulations to Ensign Striker has been promoted to the general membership of S.W.O.R.D. Operative. Chief of Staff Shaun has promoted Agent Elsa to the rank of Fleet Envoy to assist in further recruitment. Also Mr. Tawl and Nattek have been transferd to Section 31 and now both hold the rank of Agent. Congratulations again!

THE 300's Holiday Event
At the meeting it was decided that we will host a holiday event in game. The tentative date is the 28th of December 2013. As usual we want to offer several actvities for our guests to participate and win some prizes. While we already determined that there will be another one of Director Cebear's famous Trivia-Quiz' we still need members who have ideas for other activities and who volunteer to host them. Please read all about our planning here.

Fleet Uniforms
As we have not received any additional entries for the 'Design the Fleet Uniform'-Contest we have incorporated the new designs by Agent Noraa into the existing ones. Please allow some time to create the new webpages, until the new guides are online all current uniforms are valid.

Donations to our Cause
As a fleet and guild (Check6) we offer a lot to our members, especially the website including our forum and voice server among the several features like the news blog and our VoIP. We ask you to help us - to maintain these features as guild we rely on donations. Donations are no requirement as members can contribute to our community in various ways, however any donations are very much appreciated. If you would like to support us you can easily use the Pay-Pay system located at the left of our forum. Full details can be seen at our Financial Report.

All Hands Fleet Meeting December
It's a honour to invite you all to our last official fleet meeting for 2013. Every fleet member regardless of rank or level is very much invited to join our monthly Fleet Meetings. It is a place to talk about any matter concerning the fleet or game. Also it's a great opportunity to meet your fellow fleet mates and get to know each other. You can add topics to the draft agenda in this thread, also there will always be an open forum at the end of each meeting to voice your suggestions, comments or concerns. The next Fleet Meeting is scheduled for the 14th of December 2013, please visit the in game Fleet Event Tab for your personal local starting time and use the RSVP-Button to signal your attendance.

Also I want to encourage every member to get hos cold-weather gear dusted-off - surely the Q-holiday event will be available soon...
