Have you ever wanted to pilot a starship, or battle the Borg? Perhaps you'd like to be part of a team making first contact with a new lifeform. Or maybe you want to heal people and cure diseases. In Spacefleet Online, all things are possible!
Over 17 years ago, Spacefleet Online (SFOL) began as a small forum on America Online. It was a place where Star Trek enthusiasts from around the United States of America got together and engaged in some of the first online role playing games (rpg's) in the Star Trek universe. Over the years, SFOL began to expand, and was the premier Star Trek RPG on America Online.
Today, SFOL is still running strong, and expanding. Instead of being an AOL-only gaming club, SFOL now has AIM chatrooms, so that people with AOL Instant Messenger can join in the fun!
In June of 2005, SFOL formed a merger with Federation Sim Fleet (FSF), another long-running simulation group (10+ years) that has many former and current SFOL members in it. For more information on the merger, take a look at the Alliances/Mergers page.
SIMulations, also called "SIMs" for short, are our hour-long games that occur for each ship once a week. The leader of the ship is called the Commanding Officer or CO. Directly under the CO is the Executive Officer, also called the XO. These two people are also Game Masters (GM's) in SFOL. Their jobs are to basically make sure that the games run smoothly, and to help move the plots along. For more information about these people and their jobs, check out our SFOL Staff page.
In the past, people could only join SFOL by SIMming in an Academy for a few weeks, and then they would graduated to being assigned to a game of their choice.
To make the process much easier and quicker for new cadets, we have revised this policy. The new policy is as follows:
This new policy is advantageous not only for people who want to join a game in SFOL, but also for our ships. By having new players start out on a real ship, they are getting "on the job training" and will develop relationships with the people they'll be SIMming with much earlier than what would've normally occurred.
