What once was... (2000-2018)
Once upon a time, in 2000, in a galaxy far far away, on the planet Earth in the Milky Way, Frontier Fleet was founded. It was an era that broadband wasn't common and graphical computing power was less than nowadays. Frontier Fleet was one of many play-by-email games set in a Star Trek universe. Broadband got more common, graphic computing power increased, games like Star Trek Online were introduced into the world, and last, but not least, our players moved on into other stages of their life. From five dutystation in our prime days we downsized to a single dutystation. Intake of new players got to an alltime low. But we still managed to cling together. Then the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced. And we started to evaluate our website and mailinglistsystem. The system had gotten outdated and was in need of a big overhaul. Everyone was asked for suggestions how to continue in a GDPR-compliant way. In the end, the USS Pathfinder raised the Jolly Roger and warped away. From 2018 onwards, Frontier Fleet is no more.
