Not much to add this month other than check out discord and the new things that are appearing as discord releases new functions. The forum focus option is really bringing things alive whether it’s the ability to hide spoilers in one place for She-Hulk or discuss the lower decks idle game. Check it out.

Fleet Wide Election Event
The lore department has teamed up with Comms to bring us the first event like this the fleet has seen.
It is an election year and campaigns are kicking off. Since a few people had expressed interest in taking part, there is now a UFP Government simm page where you can create a candidate. There’s even one in there as an example: our current UFP President who is running for a second term.
If you are interested reach out to Cam on discord.
Since the OF site simm template is locked down we couldn’t change the titles on the character templates, so for ‘Pre-Service Biography’ enter a candidate bio (you can make it the press release kind or something as detailed as you wish) and under ‘Starfleet Service History’ please give a party and talking points/campaign slogans and/or promises.
If you did not know we also have the following social media that we manage. This month we have added Instagram. Every follow, click and like counts towards getting us out there to potential players. If anyone has anything they want to add to social media let us know.

We need everyone – players and COs alike – to submit news stories. These could be anything from an awesome mission on your sim to a great post you want to see everyone talking about. Commanding Officers please remember we have sim, post, character and mission spotlight to shout out to everyone about how awesome you guys are. It also doesn’t take long to get them approved either just need to summon any member of the fleet council on discord in IFS2help.
