As we approach the completion of the Military Tier for the Federation Star Base, some important decisions had to be made regarding how to handle new recruits. The officers met to discuss our options and here is a quick review of the decisions made.
1) all current members (individual toons, not individual accounts) are grandfathered in so far as access to Fleet ships etc.
2) any new recruits (whether the player is already a fleet member or not) will stay at the recruit level until THAT TOON has contributed 250,000 fleet credits to the projects. Once they reach that mark, they can be promoted to member and help themselves to Fleet ships.
