STO Nation!

Hope that each and everyone of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the ones you love the most and care about ?. Can you believe it’s December and Christmas is right around the corner? How time flies by fast – but if you’re waiting for your MODE, then that’s a good thing! ?

Before moving on, I have one super huge request to ask: I have a personal goal to get to 1,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel before New Years – currently it’s at 941. The huge favor I ask of you is to help support the team by subscribing to the YouTube channel if you haven’t done so already so we can reach the 1,000 subscriber goal!!

Thank you again for supporting and subscribing to STO Nation, so without further ado, here is everything going on and what to expect this month!!
