Fleet Tags Various stylings of TGE


Before squadrons, Star Trek Timelines was a lonely, desolate place: all of these captains floating aimlessly through the quadrant, some braving UChat and a few utilizing the forums. Then Disruptor Beam announced squadrons! An exciting time, to be sure---and then came the choice. Join a super tryhard fleet that had crazy requirements and seemed to forget that this was in fact a game played on a mobile device but could make an impact on the game, or a fleet that probably wouldn't make an impact but might be fun to chat with? Our Glutenous Founder, DangerDrake, said, "Why not both?" and the Gluten Empire was born!


Naming the fleet to attract players that didn't take the game (or themselves) too seriously, DangerDrake sought to make The Gluten Empire a place for committed but fun daily players of all VIP levels. Today, The Gluten Empire is one of the premier fleets in STT, with many top finishes in all event types for both individual play and squadrons.


With the introduction of fleet rankings, what we already knew was confirmed: TGE has placed in the top 7 of every faction event since the introduction of fleet rankings. TGE fleet tags can be seen all over Gauntlet, PvP, and the leaderboards of almost every event. TGE signature banners abound on the forum (when you could include images in the signature). Our Discord server is the most only fun place in all of STT. With members all over the world, there is always someone around to give sanity checks, provide behold advice, or help out with picking the best Gauntlet crews!


Sadly, on July 16, 2018, our dear founder, DangerDrake (may he rest in peace) announced that he would be retiring from STT effective immediately. This threw the entire fleet into disorder for approximately 0.68 seconds while we grappled with the vacancy we now felt in all our hearts. Thankfully the Triumvirate appeared from behind Drake's shadow to lead the Glutens into a new era.


We are The Gluten Empire! A fleet of serious and seriously fun players!

Requirements

We have four requirements for potential members:

Squadrons

TGE is a 50-person fleet, and as such, we tend to field full squads. We bear the TGE tag and usually rename each week to poke fun at DB, the art, or other STT goings-on. We do our best to get a gluten theme, but we've been known to sacrifice the gluten for the sake of the joke.

Starbase

Fleet The Gluten Empire Starbase Banner.jpg

Deep Space Naan is a level 127 starbase and the home base of The Gluten Empire. Our starbase boasts one of the highest MED proficiency rooms in the known galaxy. We were one of, if not THE, first fleets to boast a Defensive Phlox maximum roll over 1000.

Event Finishes

We are very proud to be a top fleet in STT. When reviewing the event finishes, remember that Galaxy events are terrible and we don't usually do much in them. The rest, though? See for yourself.

BRO! Our fleet rank was reduced due to the fact that we were running 11 Glutens short. They bravely formed an away team, each of them holding their permission slip (signed individually with love by Roonis), to infiltrate the mighty Brofleet, and to take Brofleet to its rightful position as STT's new top fleet.

The one where DB got infected with Polywater themselves, and created a massively OP arena crew that everyone decided they must have. Competition was fierce. Not quite as fierce as the following month-long CS battle that ensued when they announced they nerfed her 22 minutes before taking her pack out of the portal on Wednesday, though. It's worth noting that not even 24 hours before this, they released the new top voyage & overall gauntlet crew- Gary Seven, who is also pretty damn OP himself.

Clifford is so miffed by only getting TGE's third best event finish that she invented a new record-- most VP obtained in a single event! We'll pretend that it means anything. Also, Minuet didn't give the right kind of bonus at first, but isn't that just a Meh-ga event tradition at this point?

One of those events where DB messed up the bonus crew. Whatever. CS meta game is the real game anyway. Also, Clifford is not happy that she has to share her 3rd place ribbon now. Clifford needs to chill. Good work, Donut!

First Place Finishes

  • When The Longest Day was announced, DangerDrake said, "This is the one, Glutens." He had been planning a first place finish in an event for some time and had been waiting for the perfect storm. A prime squadron was formed to maximize shared VP, and he went into Phase 2 in great shape. As soon as the Galaxy phase started, he climbed the leaderboards. His effort infected the squadron, and they climbed as well. With a Gluten in first place on the solo leaderboard and a Gluten squadron at number one on that leaderboard, Drake said, "I think we can get the trifecta and finish with TGE as the number one fleet." The gauntlet was thrown down, and the Gluten Empire stepped up! We had seven players in the top 50 and 20 in the top 1k! For this event, TGE finished first in solo, squadron, and fleet! Glory to the Gluten Empire!!

Member Bios

Name Position Bio
Captain P Admiral/Chief Engineer As the custodian of this page and the keeper of our Discord bots, up-for-anything Captain P is instrumental in making the awesome awesomer. He may have missed his calling as a weatherman presenting inappropriately shaped weather patterns, but as TGE's lowest common denominator, he is living out his gifts by helping TGE to meet its "that’s what she said" joke quotas each and every day. Just don't open any attachments from him.
Roonis Face of the Franchise The Roonis has led countless away teams to stir the pot on the STT Discord server and to give DB the business on the forum. He is also the co-host of the hit podcast "Timelines Chat with Frank and Roonis" (available exclusively on Zune, now also on twitch!). It is for his sake alone that DB has enacted the Roonis Rule, whereby all new DS9 characters must enter the game in a Galaxy event (case in point the Kosst Kejal event).
Amphistaff Third Wheel of the Triumvirate/Forum Beat Reporter Creator and keeper of the e-peen table. Herder of squads. New master of the bots custom commands.
Admiral Moz Science Officer/Starbase Administrator The numbers man of TGE. He is the head of the Science Department and is working to unwrap the secrets of the game. Moz is also one of the most likely to grace the top of the leaderboards.
Capt. Skyhawk Troll/Chief Proclaimator of Human Depravity Skyhawk wandered in off the street one day when nobody was looking, but we had an opening for a mouthy, Bible-memorizing North Korean anarcho-capitalist, so we let him stay. His bedtime is 8 p.m.
Culahera Officer Does stuff. Probably.
DangerDrake Founder/Admiral Emeritus The Founder of the Gluten Empire, DangerDrake is the moral compass of TGE, the chief cat-herder, and the Gauntlet sensei. He is known to shamelessly tryhard and aggressively science. He is often referred to as "Dad," sometimes even affectionately.
Jim Raynor Commander, European Outpost/Chief Engineer Having run out of things to do in the game itself, Jim Raynor has devoted himself to becoming a Teutonic pain in the admiral's rear. He takes a great deal of pride in his work.
Porter (Shatner's Toupee) Officer/not a Gentleman After mistakenly joining the NWO, Porter posted on the forums that he was looking for a decent fleet. Along came this van with "Free Candy" painted on the side, and DD opened the sliding door, saying, "Come with me if you want to live." One day he will succeed in tunneling out using a spork, but until then, he will continue to use his Black Belt in puns. He is also fluent in sarcasm and shutthehellup.
Sorga Dirgo Chief Curmudgeon One of the fleet's oldest members (see what we did there?), Sorga was one of our original forum instigators. He has since shifted into semi-retirement and now spends entirely too much time playing Elvenar and trying to communicate via the in-game chat.
WhiteClifford Chief Doggo Sspicier than a habanero when on the right amount of meds, sleep deprivation, and dog hair. Errrr.... I mean Great Pyrenees glitter.
Yersinia Chief Medical Officer Whether you're suffering from chocolate-covered strawberry waffle balls or you've got a bad case of the jalapeño corndog shrimps, the Plague Doctor has just what you need. A proud graduate of Big Bob's School of Medicine and Lawnmower Repair, the Doc is a rock-steady event contributor who can be counted on for 10 hard-hitting VP every Galaxy event.
Ambassador Caffeine Gluten May just love coffee more than McFlint.
Barncat Gluten (under construction)
Boom King Gluten He's so flippin' hot, he's like a curry. He's the Boom King!
Buffymaster Gluten Having events start at 4 a.m. means that Buffymaster hates being a squadron leader. He channels that anger into whaling out.
Commander Keen Gluten (under construction)
Crubumble Gluten What is a Crubumble, anyway? Only one man knows, and he's not telling.
DankeyKang Gluten (under construction)
Darxide Gluten Resident STT Wiki expert who would never use his position as a Wiki Admin for personal gain. Honest.
Educated Beast Gluten A holder of many strong opinions about precisely how this game can be improved, EB shares his views in-fleet and on the forum with the vim and vigor of a bottle of Diet Coke in an industrial paint shaker full of Mentos.
ENaz Humble Gluten We're still not sure how Humble he really is...
esch Gluten Weird name. It is liked. Great Discovery cards on his vanity crew.
Excel101 Gluten (under construction)
Gorignak Gluten (under construction)
Grounded Astronaut Gluten Grounded Astronaut has really made the grade. And the papers want to know whose shirts he wears.
Harbinger Gluten (under construction)
Hurley Gluten (under construction)
Jugglerette Gluten The most heavily recruited player in TGE history, Jugglerette brings a refreshingly wide-eyed positivity to a fleet full of cynical sarcasm. Jugglerette enjoys absinthe, illicit baked goods, and decorating every inch of the Discord server with heart emojis.
Kay Gluten (under construction)
McFlint Gluten Provides at least one Garfield comic per day. All of them about coffee.
Mythlo Gluten (under construction)
Phroglet Gluten Awwww he's so tiny and slimy and ribbety... okay maybe not "aww" so much anymore....
Rajin Gluten (under construction)
RWB Gluten (under construction)

SouthofSulu (Soulless Minion of Orthodoxy) Gluten What does that mean even?!
Spock the Slayer Gluten One of them Mochi Dangos...
Tewnn Gluten (under construction)
Tom Gluten (under construction)
Towncivilian Gluten He's just happy to be here!
Trip Hammered Gluten All the dollar signs on his screenshots are in the wrong place... suspect he might be French-Canadian. Currently giving Jugglerette a run for her money in speaking on Discord solely in emojis, and on the shortlist for head of the Squadron Naming Department.

SmartForce Gluten He came, he conquered, he got bored, he left, he got unbored, he came back, he got rebored. Maybe we'll see him again someday.

Xavros Record Keeper Quick to record all of our fleet finishes in a handy spreadsheet. He also passes out delicious breadcrumbs if we place particularly well. All the breadcrumbs seem to taste like a screen but we haven't been able to figure out why...
zmaya "What, truly, is a sandwich?" A true wordsmith if ever there was one. He constructs prose in such a way that most of TGE is hopeless to unravel. He gets a lot of Lols.
