‘Timelords’ was created back on the forum boards of the currently paused Star Trek: Infinite Space MMO, on April 17th 2011. Slowly, but in a steady way the core of the Fleet (Admirals and Senior Officers) established itself. We got administrators for the 'paperwork', artists for web design and signatures. Online presence was crafted: website, forums, blog.
We looked forward to jump start with ST:IS. Sadly, about November 2011 ST:IS development got paused (some would say cancelled) and while we still keep a look at it, by the end of the month the Fleet switched focus for Star Trek Online.
With the Early Access Event (Entry for earlier suscribers while pre-F2P) of STO, our STO In-Game Fleet was finally founded on January 7th 2012.
