S.T.A.R.S. History

The S.T.A.R.S. were founded in New York in 1967. The privately funded S.T.A.R.S. organization was originally created as a counter measure against cult affiliated terrorism. As time went on and the S.T.A.R.S. grew in numbers and funding, they expanded into other high risk areas such as riot control and hostage negotiation. In 1988 Stephen Wolfe became the commander of S.T.A.R.S. When the Malton incident began and the city was quarantined, S.T.A.R.S. was amongst the first wave assigned to respond. Wolfe, regarding Malton, it's police force and the panicked groups of citizens clawing at the barricades, mused quietly to his men, They never could control this city... Prepared to counter biological terrorism and civil unrest Wolfe and his men were grossly unprepared for the reality, with the dead facing them, his men falling and the rules of the quarantine he had been sent to enforce preventing his escape; Wolfe and his men fell back into the city. Determined to avenge his men, protect the citizens of Malton and rid the city of the zombie horde he made the decision to deputise citizens and make them part of his battered team. Gathering the most talented members of his new team to him he established a chain of command and dispatched his new officers throughout the surrounding suburbs. Choosing his base in the suburb of East Grayside he set himself and his officers the task of defending their new home and the citizens scattered throughout. The tides of war, however, are brutal and many members of S.T.A.R.S. were lost or killed fighting the restless dead. Even Wolfe was lost, his fate unknown, his task unfinished. Many have followed in his footsteps, stepping up to take command of S.T.A.R.S. and, though the ebb and flow of battle have affected S.T.A.R.S. it's members still try to live up to the example of their most famous commander.

Special Tactics and Rescue Squad Original 6 Founding fathers

  • This is a place where the best of the best retired STARS can be honored for their accomplishments.


- JD was one of the very first STARS members, and really got the group up off its feet. JD met the STARS after the devestating attacks in Wray Heights in late 2005, and introduced the world of Urban Dead to them. He is the one who made us an "offical group" and he saved our asses more than one time. ;) JD was second in the first annual Malton Ididarod, and he brought honnor the the STARS. We are sad to see him leave, but honnored to have had one of the best players Malton has ever seen.

  • Now JD has now come back after an extended leave. Aaaah! Attack of the oldbies! ^_^ ~Ohaerisig.pngu t STARS

- JD's a bit inactive now - The Cop Profile 10:51, 10th July 2007 (GMT)


- One of the most intelligent, and useful soliders the STARS ever had. He was the main technician for the STARS and also was part of Stephen Wolfe's elite soliders. He was always ready to follow orders, and was well respected among his peers. He committed suicide, after depression took its toll.

-After a long break, Aran has returned!--Mayor Fitting 17:17, 7 October 2006 (BST)

-Aran is more of a sleeping Forum Watcher now - The Cop Profile 21:45, 23 May 2007 (GMT)


- Founded the STARS. One of the best and most respected men in Southern Malton. Founded the STARS in December 2005, and attempted to set up a camp in Wyke Hills, after his first operation failed, the STARS settled in East Grayside, and the rest is history. Wolfe was powerful, and a amazing tactician, he led the STARS through the PH War even though it had many ups and downs, and he led the team through numerous zed attacks that rattled the team. Wolfe vanished sometime in May 2006 and left the STARS in the hands of Chris Hollis shorty after.


- A very charasmatic leader, he succeeded Stephen Wolfe as the leader of STARS. He led STARS through many of times, the biggest being the Forum Hijack by a BoL Member. However, he battled on and was, and still is a extremely well respected man both within Southern Malton and the group. He has had many acheivements and became the bigger man between PH and The Allies(might as well be called that seems though there were multiple group against them) by ending the war between them. However, he became bored or being leader and became bored of playing the game and held a Leadership Competition, and eventually left the group in the more then capable hands of Serge. He will always be remembered as one of STARS's Greatest Heros!

  • Chris Hollis is still around, looking over STARS, still a bit of an idiot :) The Cop Profile


- First thing you could say about Meinstorm, was he was very lazy. But despite that, he'd worked his way up to a very respectful position within the group. One of the first 10 People to Join STARS, He participated in many major battles that established the STARS that the group is today. Upon Chris Hollis's ascension to Commander, Meinstorm was given the title of Applications Review/Approver, as well as 3rd in Command. He remained with STARS for over two years, being one of the longest serving members that STARS has ever had. May he hold the honour, for he will always be remembered. He still remains an Admin on the groups Forum.


  • Greg Melayne

- Joined the same day as John Killah, they both irrevocably ended up in the same position as 2nd in Commands. Greg participated heavily in the PH Wars, helping G4361 co-ordinate many of the groups efforts. Upon Chris Hollis's acsension to Commander, Greg was given the position of Intel Manager and the Group Representative, and a place on the BoL, though no 'In Command' was given. Towards the end of his STARS BoL career, he was given the upgraded title of Intelligence Director, Co-Planner of Group Activities ... Not to mention finally gaining his own squad: Intelligence Reconnaissance Unit 12. Unfortunately, Greg was then deemed MIA, and retired from STARS. Greg Melayne has returned and reestablished S.T.A.R.S officially on 09/27/2012 @ 00:12 GMT-6
