THE 300 is a Federation guild of Star Trek Online. Established in 2162 (shortly after the founding of the United Federation of Planets), THE 300 is a special operations fleet, authorized by Starfleet Command and comprised as a joint venture between Starfleet Intelligence (Section 31) and Starfleet Operations (SWORD).
Valor, Dedication, and Honor are traits sought after in candidates to THE 300. The Fleet has a 30 day probationary period for new members, which may be waived if an existing member provides sponsorship for the initiate. We promote activities for Role-Playing (RP), Player-vs.-Player (PVP), and Player-vs.-Environment (PVE). Membership to one of our departments is dependent upon a character’s in-game focus and is subject to approval by the department's director. THE 300 is led by a council of elected executive officers, who in turn, elect a Fleet Marshal. All fleet members are accountable to the executive council.
THE 300 represents the number of sentient beings who formed the original organization, and remains the number of operationally active members. The name was adopted to honor the 300 Spartans from Earth's history, who fought and died bravely at Thermopylae to defend their freedom and homeland against a numerically superior army of invaders. The 300 Spartans embody the sacrifice to preserve the liberty of all sentient beings...much as the Federation today must hold firm against those who would enslave the Alpha Quadrant. As war spreads throughout the quadrant it will take determined and capable soldiers to hold the line. THE 300 protects the UFP in one of its most tenuous periods in history, beset upon from all sides by powerful forces such as: the aggressive Klingon Empire, the remnants of the Romulan Empire, a resurgent Dominion, Borg expansionism, and Undine incursions.

Dennis James Giles(Liberated Borg / Human, Male) Status: Federation Engineering Officer, Vice Admiral Starship Registration Series:NX-197608-xx Active Assignment: THE 300, Fleet Marshal, USS Leonidas (E) Prior Service:USS Nimitz, USS Columbia (X), USS Patroclus (A), USS Cassander (B), USS Philip (C), USS Ptolemy (D), USS Achilles (F), USS Hephaestion (G), USS Alexander (H) Service Record Summary:
Descended from a long military tradition, it was only natural for Giles to enlist in Starfleet when it became clear that war was eminent in his lifetime. While Ensign Giles was on shore leave to New Providence, on Jouret IV, his family's colony was overrun by the Borg and he was assimilated. A Section 31 team infiltrated the Borg Cube at the battle of Wolf 359 and liberated Giles as part of their mission to collect Borg technology. Although liberated from the collective, it took years and assistance from Section 31 for Dennis to regain his individual humanity. Giles continues to be a subject of study by Section 31, as his Borg nanites seem to have extended his youth and longevity.
In the wake of the Dominion War, following numerous scandals throughout the Federation, Starfleet Intelligence begins a restructuring from within and Captain Giles is appointed as Director of Section 31. Having foresight into the state of the Alpha Quadrant, Giles immediately begins expanding clandestine operations throughout the Romulan and Klingon Empires.
In 2402 Jean-Luc Picard retires from Starfleet and appoints Admiral Giles as the Fleet Marshal of THE 300 Special Operations Fleet. When war breaks out with the Klingon Empire Giles deploys THE 300 deep within enemy space, conducting tactical strike missions and espionage for new technology. Giles continues to lead THE 300 to secure the Federation as new threats arise.
Aegeus Giles Pandion (Joined-Trill, Male) Status: Federation Science Officer, Lieutenant Commander Starship Registration Series: NX-197688-xx Active Assignment: THE 300, Fleet Marshal’s Physician, USS Athena Prior Service: USS Aegis (A) Service Record Summary:
Only one founding member of THE 300 Fleetsurvives, Pandion, a Trill Symbiont. Pandion is actually a Trillian descendant of Pandion II, King of Athens, with surviving ties to the House of Aegidius (modern Giles). Philosophers and explorers, the Human and Trill hosts of the Giles line continue to expand throughout the galaxy. It was fitting that the symbiont Pandion should be joined with his ancestor's namesake Aegeus.As protectorate of the House of Giles, Pandion has found his place within Starfleet, as private physician to Admiral Giles, Fleet Marshal of THE 300.
Rindfleisch(Folgen, Male) Status: Federation Tactical Officer, Vice Admiral Starship Registration Series:NX-196905-xx Active Assignment:THE 300, Fleet Marshal’s Attaché, USS Suffolk Prior Service:***Classified*** Service Record Summary:
Most of Rindfleisch’s Starfleet Record was lost during the Trojan Incident. What little information remains indicates that when he was a child, his planet was annihilated by the Gorn. According to Federation reports regarding the Gorn attack, it is likely that he is the last of his species. A report from Vulcan revealed that several survivors were rescued on a derelict transport by one of their ships conducting a scientific mission within his home sector. Rindfleisch is the only known survivor from that transport and he is placed on Vulcan, attending the Science Academy, until his transfer to Starfleet Academy. All information regarding his exploits as a Federation Officer is missing from official files. However, it is rumored that key members of Section 31 retain details of his service; all attempts to recreate his record have been halted by Starfleet Intelligence.
