++ Fleet News Bulletin - May ++

Greetings my friends,

eventually summer has arrived, the new season is running and we have hard to fight to keep the Undine contained. I have seen numerous reports of valiant ship- and ground actions led by various elements of THE 300. Especially in such dark times the whole galaxy relies on battle-proven and loyal veterans like we have in THE 300. That said, please look out for your feelow fleet mates who have not the experience or gear and give them all support we can muster. My new position as Fleet Advisor allows me to more engage in fleet activities and I also am very happy to see many new members flocking to our banner.

All Hands Fleet Meeting May 2014
This Saturday, the 10th of May 2014 we will hold the next All Hands Fleet Meeting. Again all our members (FED + KDF) and allied Ambassadors are invited to join us to discuss the latest developments in fleet and game. While you can apply for promotions and take an active part in the fleet, it is also the perfect opportunity to meet your fellow fleet mates. Please check the draft agenda and your local starting time here!

New Patrol Escort - Tempest Class (FED)
Fresh from the Utopia Planetia Shipyards we will soon see one of the all-time favourite tactical ships reemerging in a new design. The Patrol Escorts were envisioned as escorts with an engineering bent. The Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class improves on those original designs with greatly improved Bridge Officer seating, a 5th Tactical Console slot, and additional aft firepower that will give Tempest captains new options in combat and a Nadion Saturation Bomb.



The Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class also comes with the Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun. This unique dual cannon is set up to fire on targets in the rear 90 degree arc of the Patrol Escort, and defaults to the Rapid Fire I firing mode. Like other cannons, the Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun can be modified by Scatter Volley and higher rank Rapid Fire bridge officer abilities. The Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun is fused to its own slot and does not fill one of the ships three aft weapons slots. It cannot be removed.

There is currently a Fleet Patrol Escort available in the in-game ship store at THE AEGIS, our Fleet Starbase. That ship will be retired and no longer available.  It will be replaced with the new Fleet Patrol Escort Refit. Like all Fleet ships, the new Fleet Patrol Escort Refit enjoys additional Hit Points and shields, as well as a bonus console slot – in this case, a 3rd Engineering console slot. The Fleet Patrol Escort does not come with the Nadion Saturation Bomb console item, but it does come equipped with a 4th aft weapon slot, fused with the Aft Tempest Tail Gun. While the standard Tempest will be available via the ZenStore, the Fleet version will be available at our shipyards - I expect the Nadion Saturation Bomb to be either usable for all ships or at least also the fleet variant, along with the usual discount on fleet modules when you already have the zen version.
 
I hope to see you all at the Beach Party and of course at the Fleet Meeting, see you in Tau Dewa and Clear Skies to you, Captain!

++ 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
