NUHyperForce Announcement


Recommended Posts

nuh3a.jpg

Hello Everyone (again)

My name is Orionsway and I'm proud to formally re-announce the existence of our alliance called NUHyperForce. We turned on the lights on March 19, 2009 and made an official announcement on May 15th located Here. However, shortly after posting our DoE it was brought to our attention that our charter was a copy of another alliance charter. It was an unintentional mistake which has now been fixed. Our new charter is presented below which has been written from scratch by members of NUHyperForce. The theme and new government structure of our alliance is a space theme loosly based on the Star Trek series. In addition, we've created a new flag.

We welcome alliances to come visit us and establish an embassy.

As an example, if a mature nation joins NUHyperForce, is not blue, but has a very good circle with long time partners, then an exception can be granted by the Commanding Officer of Recruitment and Growth.
