Hey Malcar, so your looking to join ISS... Well your welcome too! It's the job of the commanders of the ISS Fleet to protect the home systems Sol, Omicron Eridani etc. the main systems belonging to the Terran, Empirian and Vesperon races (the members of galcom). If you join the Defence fleet, you'll participate in the defence of these systems, backing up the other fleets when they have to fight back home and protecting civies throughout those systems. Intel & Espionage is for role players AND multiplayers (im sure as hell am going to be playing multiplayer all the time), you can participate in the Roleplaying section of the forum or you can actually do some Intelligence or Espionage work. I&E see's a little less action than Defence and will probably have fewer members but having accurate intelligence on your enemy is vital in any good operation wouldn't you say? You may even want to join CIOPS, a division of the I&E wing devoted to kicking the @$$'s of the insurgents through gathering info, sabotage etc. If you want to join, sign up at the fleet database and Fleet Commander DeSylva will get to you shortly... at the moment he is incapable of doing so I believe. But in a day or so, he'll get to you and another recruit Urza. Nice talking to you, and I hope you decide to join!
