The Founding of the Ausmonauts
The Ausmonauts were formed on May 29th, 2011 in the game Star Trek Online (STO). It was founded by the original members Doull, Jirk, Lostpinky, Pup and Shinji 3.141, some of who went on to become part of the original council of five, to manage the fleet along with JJ McQuade. Over the next few years the club saw massive growth, becoming one of the premier Oceanic fleets within Star Trek Online.
In 2013, the Ausmonauts registered as a business in Australia in order to raise funds to support the various activities and games that we operate in. It was just prior to this time that the player base began to diverge from Star Trek Online and focus on other games. Many players joined our venture into Star Wars: The Old Republic in 2011/2012 and subsequently began to focus on a newly announced game called Star Citizen in 2013. between 2013 and 2017 tensions began to form between some members who still played Star Trek and those looking forward to Star Citizen. During 2017 this issue was resolved finally and today, this multi game club supports members across 12 different games with major focus on Star Citizen, War Thunder and World of Warships.
The Ausmonauts have grown from just another gaming guild into a recognised club with members world wide. We operate in multiple games and possess a marketing division to promote our community with game developers globally. We aim to provide a place for all gamers to find new friends and play together in whatever game or activity they enjoy, incubating a club like experience for our members across both our virtual and real worlds.
