In Game Channels
Here is a brief list of in-game channels that you may find helpful. Many of these channels were taken from the Star Trek Online Wiki page which is located here. Others are not on that page, but are still useful to many. If you have a channel you would like added to this list, leave a comment or drop me an in-game mail and I will consider adding it. Do note that I will not post channels that are used solely to exploit game mechanics or violate the Terms of Service. Also note that I do not favor any single fleet or group over another. These channels are listed simply because players may find them useful.
* to join any channel, type in /Channel_Join followed by the channel name. You can also do a channel by name search in chat option.
