The Fifth 'Echo' Fleet (Fifth) is a Star Trek Roleplaying Organisation founded by members of Starbase Versailles and USS Alexandra Timmis following a spin off from UCIP, which it’s self founded by Fleet Admiral Mark Miller.

The Fleet CO, reporting to the Fleet Council, is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of Fifth. Our main goal here at The Fifth Fleet has always been a simple one - to provide Star Trek and Science Fiction fans and enthusiasts alike with realistic Star Trek Simulations for them to participate in, but more importantly, to make sure they are fun and entertaining.

This goal of providing entertaining simulations is achieved primarily via collaborative writing and story telling via Email, Play by Post (Nova) and increasingly, in real time, on our Discord server (which has replaced IRC as the primary chat medium). While the discord method allows for live interaction between other officers in real time, email and play by post involves writing story-like "Logs" which are sent too all the crew of the ship/starbase/etc.. Whilst it may lack the live interaction of Discord, it allows for greater character development and creative writing.
