A Report from Starfleet Command

Happy April Fools Day! Despite the day, this is a serious report coming from the members of Starfleet Command and going out to all of the members of UES. As announced a couple of weeks ago Starfleet Command was going to post and regularly update goals that we have for the community to let everyone know what we have going on, what we could use help with, and what grand plans we have for our group. So this is our first official update on how things are going with those new goals despite having given ourselves until April to begin using the set deadlines we placed on ourself which are a month followed by every three in spacing for goals.

We have completed one of our goals which was a database to better track special awards, achievements, and assignments of members. This also included a way to track member issues related to moderation and sadly people who may no longer be welcome (temporarily or not) in the organization.

We also have multiple other items in progress including trying to build a Mission Support team which will directly assist the Director of Mission Support in the development of things such as articles for our database, official specifications for ships and our base, etc. If you think you might be interested please let myself or the DMS know on Discord (Stephen#0373 or orionSquared#1760).

As of now these our current goals that we would like to have completed by 1 MAY 2021 with their progress notes added. If you would like to view all of our community goals you can always find them under the community menu on the website or by going to https://uestarfleet.com/goals.

  • Establish Specifications Team – In progress
  • Recruit Director of Public Affairs – In progress
  • Establish Canon Specs for NX-Type Ship
    • Include Warp 6 Variant note (NX12 is first, any additional NX)
    • Include Deep Space Rescue Variant note (NX11 only)
  • Database for Award/Special Assignment Tracking – Completed
  • Begin working on Apollo Base Specifications – In progress
  • Begin recruiting for Falcon – On Hold (CO LOA)

We look forward to the continued growth of our organization and the continued support of our members and friends.

On behalf of Starfleet Command,

Stephen aka,
Admiral Seth Kern
Chief of Starfleet Operations

Community Goals Announced

Members of Starfleet Command have decided that in order to help involve our community in development of the organization and our canon that it would be helpful for our members to know what our plans are. After a discussion of command members we have create a page on the website that lists all of our major development goals for the next year which will be updated each month by Starfleet Command beginning in May 2021. We have decided for simplicity sake to include the rest of March into the goals for April of this year to give us a bit of a head start as we begin to follow our new plan.

These goals include things like official specifications for our NX-Type vessels, the two variants, and for Apollo Base. It also includes plans for expansion to other units to allow for more exciting writing opportunities as well as reviewing and revamping our existing time line to have more content and feel less like a list.

We have some big goals for the year and we are looking for all members at levels who are interested in participating and contributing even to a single idea or database article to please let a member of Starfleet Command know of their interest or visit the #development channel on the discord and start a discussion.

To view our new list of goals please click here or check the Our Community drop-down on the main menu on the website.

Starfleet Command, Apollo Base Recruiting

United Earth Starfleet is an online collaborative writing group that takes place in an Alternate Universe in the year 2160 where the Federation was not formed. Earth’s relationship with the Vulcans took a serious downturn when the Vulcan High Command requested that the Warp 5 Program should be terminated and Earth, deciding to defy the advice of Vulcan. With the Vulcans no longer involved, this left an opening for the Andorians and Vissians to partner with Earth and guide them in their exploration of the galaxy.

We are a brand new organization with an active ship, a new Starbase launching, and another NX-Type ship being developed. We are currently seeking members wanting to join our Discord community, join in our writing, and join in our community building! Anyone who might be interested in any of those things should check out our website.

All members must be eighteen or older to join.

Website Downtime

Hey everyone! I have some exciting things planned for the UES website. Unfortunately some of these plans required some software I must install manually. I will be working on installing it between SUN 7 FEB and TUE 9 FEB. Please keep an eye on Facebook and Discoed for live start and stop of downtime announcements.
