Independent Fleet Operations

Independent Fleet Operations (IFO) isn't a Task Force in the traditional Obsidian Fleet sense. Instead, it is a group of sims within Obsidian Fleet that, for various reasons, may not be placed within a mainstream Task Force.

Sims that have served within Independent Fleet Operations typically fall into one of the following categories:

  • Sims commanded by a member of the Joint Fleet Command: Because a Triad member may not, for reasons of chain of command, report to a Task Group or Task Force CO, their sims fall into IFO.
  • Speciality or unique sims: Oftentimes, unique sims are placed in IFO, or in preparation for wider-scale introduction into the Fleet. Most recently, this happened with the addition of new types of base: Regula class, Colony class, and Lowell class.
  • Non-Starfleet sims: To date, civilian and alien sims have also fallen into the Independent Fleet Operations category, such as the IRW S'Task and the SS Walkabout.

The effective Task Force Commanding Officer for all sims within Independent Fleet Operations is the Joint Fleet Command.

Independent Fleet Operations sims are identified by royal blue insignia and borders on their ship banners.
