The Romulan Star Navy, also known as the Imperial Romulan Fleet or Grand Fleet, is the military force of the Romulan Star Empire. The Galae s'Shiar, (Romulan Star Navy or Imperial Romulan Fleet) is the largest branch of the Star Empire military. The department oversees shipping, including both domestic and military defense and assaults, on both the surface and space as well as exploration, engineering advancement, and the pursuit of the sciences. It is the largest branch in the military, having its own ground-based and intelligence forces.
The Imperial Romulan Fleet is the Empire's department for Star Trek Online.
Ranking System in STO: There are currently 7 ranks available to fleet members.
Rank 7 Praetorate- Is held by all leadership of the Imperial High Command but holds no direct ruling over anything in game. (It's more of a formality rank in game). Commanders of this category will fill in should the Fleet Commander be absent for an unspecified period of time.
Rank 6 Fleet Commander - This is the Fleet Leader rank. Fleet Leader is held by the current operations commander for the specific faction, they have overall direct control of the fleet in game for there respective branch (KDF or FED).

Rank 5 Senior Commander-This rank slot is referred to as Senior Commander.

The Following Rules of Conduct are in effect:
Name Calling- Of other members will not be tolerated.
Harassment- Of any member will result in a formal investigation by the Tal Shiar.
Foul Language - Many of us do this form of speech, and if a member request it to be discontinued while they are around you will comply.
Misconduct- Against other members of the STO game, or other Fleets - THIS IS NOT TOLERATED AT ALL, be respectful at all times
Hostile Takeover- We are Romulans and this amazingly does in fact occur.
IRF Chat Channel- Each member prior to receiving an invite to the Fleet in STO will be given an invite to the chat channel, it is imperative that you ask for an invite if you did not receive one as that is the in-game primary communications for all members.
Fleet Invites- No member shall be admitted or be given a fleet invite with out first signing up on the community forums and being accepted into the Academy. Only a Wing Commander or higher may issue an invite to current or registered members.
Although a small list above, these items are the core elements of conduct I expect people to focus on. If any member is caught in violation of above list, they will be investigated by our Tal Shiar Department, with a more than unfavorable outcome if not declared innocent.
Remember our goal as a fleet and as a community is to provide an enjoyable and friendly atmosphere for all who share a interest in the themes that make Romulans so amazing!
