Hello, I was pointed in to this group from my original post in the Newbie section. If possible could someone give me the gist of your directives. This team sounds very interesting. Thanks in advance.

Fendi, going Indie is what I am thinking. However, I have to admit that being a spy sounds very interesting as well

I will keep you posted, since you were the first to say Hi. Thanks for your help and direction.

An official 'miscellaneous fleet' does not exist, Fendi. You know that. And they need to be official to exist. It's either the terrans with (twinkling star)Prime(twinkling star), ISS, Orion, Wraith and Earthcom. The insurgents with their *censored*, *censored*, *censored* and *censored* fleets. And then there are those pathetic Gammies. Indies are indies, independant. Forsaken from any kind of political support. And a corporation is not a fleet. Don't give newbies the wrong impression, please.

**Cough** Excuse me, while what you say is essentially true, you seem to have forgetten one little detail.

Riga, myself and a couple of others are in the process of establishing Intercorp Unlimited a corporation catering all UCVs, assuming Tacops or the SC have the chance to read my email and profile.Hint, hint

Hey, don't hijack this thread and smuggle it over to the misc forum. Ari asked about ISS and it's intensions. Not you nitwits! It should stay here. Even if it was a miss-direction by Fendi in the first place. It still was Ari's conscious decision to post here.

What detail? That's why I said political support. If you guys want to have support you need to ask very very very nicely , or find it amongst yourselves (indies). Which you also need to ask very very nicely. As independants are not obligated to help eachother out, unless under contract. Wake up from that dream fellas.

Ok, now let's give the mike back to Ari again. And get this topic back on track.

Hello All, I have been watching this, trying to get some information. I believe I understand the indies, but not the ISS mission. I have read many of the posts, but am still looking for some definitive information. A few have asked me to send them a private post, and it is on my agenda, unfortunately time during the holiday season is of short supply. Thank you all for being so willing to help. I appreciate it. Talk to you all soon.

In-System Support Fleet:

The ISS Flee's provides a multi-racial defensive network within GalCOM territories, and trys to coordinates intelligence and espionage activities between GalCOM forces.

The ISS Fleet is divided into two Commands. The Defence Command consists of a number of wings which form a flexible defensive network throughout the home systems of GalCOM member nations. The Intelligence and Espionage Command coordinates intelligence and espionage activities on behalf of GalCOM throughout the known galaxy, and also operates Central Intelligence OPerationS (CIOPS).

In short:

ISS Fleet Mission

1. To follow all GalCOM directives.

2. To provide a security and early warning network for GalCOM Nations, and to respond in force to invasion or threat of invasion.

3. To coordinate intelligence and espionage activities within GalCOM.

That enough info for you? Hehehe

That is perfect Jerold. That is just what I was looking for. Who is the leader of the CIOPs branch? Without giving away any classified information I would be very interested in learning how they plan on operating in MP. Thanks again.

It isn't classified, heh heh... And the answer is Fleet Commander Ristar...

I'm not sure if he's also my boss, being a Fleet Commander and all, I also don't know whether I'm his boss or we're equal... this command structure is a little confusing:

See, I'm head of Intelligence Command: That is, Flight Group Chimaera and CIOPS

And all the flight groups and CIOPS have their own individual wing leaders, and Ristar is the CIOPS Director (Wing Leader)... so he's above me, and he's also below me... I think I remember DeSylva once said that the real reason he put a Psychotic BBQ sauce-aholic in charge of IntelCOM was because i'm more active than Ristar (He's barely ever around).

Anyways, if you want more info on CIOPS and how they operate, you'll have to ask Ristar... it's his baby.

CIOPs is semi-autonomous. In the command structure, it is only placed under Intelligence Command for convenience. In reality, it is wholly outside the command structure. Commander Ristar answers to the ISS Fleet Commander (ie. me) and Galactic Command Fleet Command only - the rest of the ISS chain of command does not apply to him.

And as Ristar is a Fleet Commander too, he outranks you, Jerold, sorry...*grin*.

Ari - thanks for your interest. The ISS Fleet website is at http://www.extreemgaaf.com/~crazyfxp/iss/ - it contains more information about the ISS and it's missions. It also contains the Join form. Feel free to apply.

and in answer to your question - multiplayer is the "big unknown".... We don't really know how CIOPs will operate in the Multiplayer arena - it is more a role-playing part of our fleet. The multiplaying section of the fleet is the ISS's Defence Command, consisting of a number of Fleet GRoups that form a first-line defensive nbetwork amongst the home systems of Galactic Command - these are Sol, Alpha Centauri, and Omicron Eridani. But for more information, see the website. Any queries, email [email protected], and one of our command staff will respond to you ASAP.

I thought it was something like that.
