United Federation Starfleet, or UFS for short, started as a dream.....a dream to realize and bring about the vision of Gene Roddenberry to life within the realms of a Metaverse community. In this 3D environment we envisioned an opportunity where you could become a Federation Citizen, Starfleet Crewman, or a Commissioned Officer within one of the most respected, most organized, and most active Star Trek organizations available. So far we've been able to accomplish this, as five years after we began our dream, UFS has become one of the premiere Star Trek sims within Secondlife. It was this success which lead us to form UFS Incorporated, a real life organization based in New York and we continue to grow and expand.
The year within UFS is currently 2386. With exploration underway within the Delta Quadrant, UFS continues to boldly go where no man has gone before. Communication with the Alpha Quadrant is soon expected to become much more fluid as another convey of ships head over. The time is ripe now to get involved, if you choose to enroll.
UFS offers a highly organized and renowned Academy which includes a vast selection of courses. These courses will help you to learn a variety of skills and information that will get you started as a contributing member within United Federation Starfleet after graduation.
Once you graduate, you will be issued a uniform, combadge, and duty assignment, becoming part of the Starfleet family.
UFS offers a wide variety of postings that you can choose from. You can:
Serve at Headquarters and help with the growth and development of UFS through your chosen Branch.
Take a posting on a station, facility, or outpost and partake in the day-to-day responsibilities of an officer assigned to one of these locations.
Be assigned to one of our Starships of the Line, where you explore the vast reaches of the Galaxy, discover new life and new civilizations, and defend our home from those that would not choose freedom as a way of life.
In addition to these postings, UFS is also involved in multiple charitable foundations, as well as planning social events for members. To begin participating you can:
