What Is A Fleet?
A fleet is a group of players who help each other and contribute into a central collection of cargo and items. Fleets also have certain advantages to players. The top 5 fleets in each System have a reduced docking fee in that System. Members of the top fleet in each System get an extra search turn at that System and members of the top fleet in the Universe get an extra search turn everywhere.
Members of the top 3 fleets in any ladder also get a medal proudly displayed on their profile.
How Do I Join A Fleet?
You must be invited by a Fleet Leader.
What is the Fleet Vault?
Fleets can keep their own collection of cargo and equipment. This is under the Fleet leader control. If you rise through the ranks you can be promoted to a leader - until then you may not access the vault or armory.

How do I change my Fleet Home Location?

Fleet home locations are assigned according to the Fleet level. This allows similar leveled fleets to fight for the top advantages. Fleets assignments are as follows:
Mars Station - No ladder.
Jupiter Station - Fleet level 1 - 30
Saturn Station - Fleet level 31 - 40
Uranus Station - Fleet level 41 - 50
Lower Belt - Fleet level 51 - 60
Upper Belt - Fleet level 61 - 70
Pluto and Charon - Fleet level 70+
Neptune - No ladder
Fleet Ownership: Can it be Given Away?
Yes, it can be done. We are able to manually do this if the fleet owner asks us to do so via opening a support ticket and specifies the player to become the owner -and- if the player to be given ownership to also opens a support ticket. We reserve the right to refuse a transfer (see below).

Note that such transfers are 'one-way': if you give a Fleet away, we won't transfer it back to you later. If you don't want to be in a Fleet long-term, join one - don't start one.
How do I mail all Members of My Fleet?
Click "Fleet", click the 'Mass Mail' button.
-or-
Click "Private Messages", "Mass Mail Fleet".

If your rank is insufficient for what your Fleet leader has chosen you won't see these options.
How Do I Loan Items From the Fleet Armory?
Open the Fleet page, go to Armory, then click "Loan to Member" next to the item which you wish to loan. Those who have Armory permission can also loan items to fleet members.

Items loaned to fleet members cannot be sold or put on the market. If the member leaves the fleet (or is dismissed), the items are returned to the armory.

Fleet leaders (and owners) can see items loaned to a member on the member's profile, below the ship information.

Limitations: this allows you to view but not send consumable items that the member cannot use. We will not show the link to loan impermanent items - the functionality is correct as the member cannot actually consume nor destroy them.

WARNING: any and all points, cargo, items that an account is in possession of when banned are out of the game. Take care who you loan things to.
