The Inter-Club Training Event (ICTE) began around May 2003 as a join effort between the Rebel Squadrons, Star Vipers, and the Dark Brotherhood to promote inter-club relations. Many other clubs, including the New Republic Fith Fleet, and others were also invited to join in on the fun. The event is an opportunity for members from diverse backgrounds to come together on a common playing field to engage in multi-player combat without the stress of a competitive environment found in events like the Outer Rim Wars or the wars for the Minos Cluster.
Since its founding, the Inter-Club Training Event has endured one of its initial charges—to become an event where people can get together and have "something [fun] to do on weekends" as `Mav`, one of the original ICTE founders, eloquently states. Today, while the popularity of the event within other clubs remains somewhat skewed, the ICTE is still an event where members gather to blow up their enemies with trip mines, send laser salvos flying through the vacuum of space, and order their squadmates across hostile territory to capture some vital command post. Even today, over two years later, it is not such a rare occasion to get at least 20 participants fighting throughout the event, representing their club's activity and continuing interest in the Inter-Club Training Event.
