Squadron Rules:

  • We play in solo, Squadron PG, or Mobius PVE PG (Americas or Factions Server).
  • We support "open" science.
  • We will NOT engage in hostile acts against other CMDR's
  • We are officially "neutral" with respect to the Federation, Empire, and Alliance superpowers.
  • We provide a safe space - harassment of any kind, or disrespect will not be tolerated.
  • We do not chase myths, or engage in wild speculation.
  • We observe, study, and record.
  • We do not require members to be actual scientists. A passion for science and exploration is very helpful though!
  • We have fun, and enjoy what we do.
