Hello Fleet!

Did you know that the Temporal Integrity Commission has a TeamSpeak server?
Join your fleet mates and fleet officers on TeamSpeak on our server at ts3.ticfleet.com (password: stf).

Don't have TeamSpeak?  Don't know what it is?  Or maybe you just don't have a microphone (see Solkor's post on purchasing headsets)?
No problem!
TeamSpeak is free and you can still use it if you don't have a microphone (you will hear others, but not be able to speak).

So how do you get TeamSpeak?

Go to www.teamspeak.com and download TeamSpeak 3.
Once installed, use the bookmarks menu to add a bookmark with the following information:
  Label: Temporal Integrity Commission
  Address: ts3.ticfleet.com
  Nickname [Your in-game handle]
  Server Password: stf

Once that bookmark is created, you can connect to our server by clicking that bookmark in the bookmarks menu.

Why should you join us on TeamSpeak?
-It's a lot more fun to run team-based missions such as STFs when you can communicate via voice.
-You can get to know your fleet mates and fleet officers a lot better.
-It's a great way to get tips or help from STO veterans.
-It is required for advancement beyond Lieutenant in the fleet.
-We always have a good time together, talking about game- and non game-related topics.
-It's FREE!

So don't be shy!  Download TeamSpeak and join us.  You'll be glad you did.

As always, if you have any questions, you can ask a fleet officer or post in the fleet forums at www.ticfleet.com.

Basic TeamSpeak Etiquette


  • Don't interrupt if you hear other people talking.
    • This includes interrupting in the middle of a conversation to say something completely unrelated to that conversation

  • Never transmit sensitive, confidential, financial or personal information.  Unless you are certain your conversations are secured with the proper level of encryption for the level of sensitivity, assume your conversations can be heard by others.

  • Learn the handles of the persons with whom you will be communicating.

  • Think before you speak.
    • Decide what you are going say and to whom it is meant for.

    • Make your conversations as concise, precise, and clear as possible.

    • Avoid long and complicated sentences. If your message is long, divide it into separate shorter messages.

    • Do not use abbreviations unless they are well understood by your group.







The 4 Golden Rules of Communication

1. Clarity:    Your voice should be clear. Speak a little slower than normal. Speak in a normal tone, do not shout.
2. Simplicity:    Keep your message simple enough for intended listeners to understand.
3. Brevity:    Be precise and to the point.
4. Security:    Do not transmit confidential information unless you know the proper security technology is in place.

Personally, I cannot stress #3 enough.

  • Precise: Blathering on and on about something is the surest way to stomp all over people, dissuade conversation, and create the conditions for people to (justifiably) interrupt you. We have many Teamspeak channels, if you and person B want to have a long conversation about Iron Man and the film's effect on Western Cultural norms, use an unoccupied channel.

  • To the point: Have a point. Just uttering random shit doesn't add value to or encourage discussion.

Do you recommend overwolf?

Some people like it. Some people don't. Really, that comes down to personal preference.
It's certainly nice, if you have a single-monitor setup.

I can see where it can be useful, especially with my lame one-monitor set up, but I personally didn't get much out of it.  I'd say it's worth trying though.
