Star Trek ThemeEdit

Zhaan, communicating privately to the current XO, QQQ14, stated that he wanted a fresh theme, and told QQQ14 that it was Star Trek based. Before the forums and structure were complete, Zhaan had a moment of genius and announced Starfleet's existence to get a jump on other Star Trek themed alliance waiting to announce theirs. He was right, as it would turn out several other alliances where about to announce their existence, but Starfleet got it first, obviously having the greatest impact on the Cybernations community.
