The year is 2394The Alpha Quadrant, rocked by the Supernova at Hobus some 7 years ago, is still reeling from the loss of life. With that, new ideals were formed, a whole race needed to start all over again. They have lost everything that they ever held dear to them, and now, small pockets want to recover what they had before. All it could take is a shot across the bow to have chaos throughout the quadrant.
With the dust settling down, Starfleet has decided to shift their focus back to the original mission of “exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where nobody has gone before”. The Federation is back to its former strength as well, becoming a leading presence in the alpha and beta quadrants, and that very presence of maintaining the peace that was so hardly fought for in the Dominion War is paramount.
The USS Cavalry, assigned to Bravo Fleet’s Task Force 99 is tasked with a wide range of missions, not just tasked with the core mission of the Federation, but also missions such as simple patrol missions, to first contact missions with new worlds, to fighting to keep the peace between all different sides. From diplomatic situations to preventing neither side getting an upper hand. Peace took too many lives. It is this crew that is tasked with ensuring no more lives need to be lost for peace.
We all stand ready to face the adventures that await. Come and join us.
Thank You, and welcome to our website!

Game Master/Webmaster (and Commanding Officer)

Out of Character Information
We are a +13 rated simulation, and that also includes our Discord channel. We have been an active simulation in various incarnations since October 2007, but have been on the USS Cavalry since 1 October 2013. The USS Cavalry is commanded by Captain Samuel Wentworth (TheCaptain on Discord)
We are a crew that prides itself on using our rank as an in-character tool, where we respect each other and work together to do what we all came here for, that is to write and have fun. No matter if we succeed or fail, we do so as a team, as a family. Our missions are part of who we are, and we all get from this simulation what we put into it. The drama we have is only in-character because we respect each other. That is our core ideal and something we strive for every single day. We aren't focused on pumping out 100+ posts every month, we are focussed on having quality and descriptive posts each and every single month.
That is what we stand for, and that is what you will get with a simulation like the USS Cavalry. If you are interested in joining, or you want to find out more about the simulation before you make the leap to join us on our adventure, why not send us an email through our contact page or find us on Discord!

I know we have all seen the news about Cambridge Analytica and the massive fallout that it has had across the whole internet, and I am very serious about internet security and privacy. I want to assure every single person on this simulation and every single guest who applies as well as those who have previously been part of this simulation that your information is secure. Under no circumstances is personal details or any information provided in the application process or details from Discord are handed to a third party or any other outside source.
The details you give are kept on this website and on the Bravo Fleet website as well. The Admiralty are working with Anodyne Productions to produce an update to allow for the users to delete their own accounts in order to better comply with the easy opt-out provision of this EU legislation that is coming into effect towards the end of this month, however, I already provide such matters in that any former member may request to have their information fully deleted from the server and such things would happen within 24 hours.

Please join me in welcoming Chief Petty Officer Wes Cullen to the simulation as our newest member of the Engineering team. Now, Wes (better known as Michael) is actually a former member of this very simulation, some 18 months ago, and it is great to welcome a former member back to the Cavalry family!

Well, what a way to start the week. I'm proud to announce that our very own Ensign Vincent Turner, Chief Engineering Officer has been awarded the Task Force 99 Player of the Month award for January 2018.
"He has been a great help over the last few months without an XO. He has stepped up and assisted me in running the sim, and while he has said that he doesn’t want to be full-time XO; he has done a great job as an assistant game master with me, and I would not have had the help in moving everything over from the old wiki site to our Nova site if it wasn’t for Tom stepping up and helping out. We still have some way to go but without him, we would still be stuffing around with the old website system instead of fully working through Nova now."
Please join with me in congratulating Tom on this fine achievement and fine award!

Please join with me in welcoming Brian to the simulation as our brand new Chief Medical Officer, in Ensign Hilea t'Rehu. Brian has a great character coming onboard and I am really looking forward to meeting this character and incorporating Ensign t'Rehu into the storyline for the upcoming mission.

It is now 8 days (or 7, depending on timezones) into 2018, and now we are getting back to our full posting and simulation rules. This means everything is back in force and it also means I will be starting a big recruitment push over the coming weeks to really bolster the numbers. We currently have 9 crew and I would love to see that number get higher this year and to really see a big increase in posting across the whole year. We will be starting our new mission at the end of the month, so be ready for that. I will outline all of this in the upcoming simulation update email, which I still need to send out. With all of this, it means that from now, I will need the following things from everyone: -
1. A reply email (or a response to Discord will suffice this year) as to whether you are staying or leaving the simulation. If you are staying, I will also need to know whether you are wishing to change characters and/or positions. (Please note, changing positions will not alter your current rank unless it is an enlisted position to an officer position). If you are leaving, I will need to know that as well and you will be given 24 hours to post your departure from the simulation if you wish to do that.
2. I will need a solo mission post from everyone who is staying to bring their character back into the storyline. For continuity purposes; the storyline will be that the ship has been at the border for the last three weeks, with the Ambassador onboard and there have been ongoing discussions between the General and Chancellor. So the story has moved forward three weeks and I will reference that in my post which will be coming out tomorrow.
These two things need to be completed within the next seven (7) days, so by the 15th January 2018 (GMT+11) at this time, or you will be removed from the simulation. This year there will be no extension of time on this, once the 7 days has expired, anybody who has not responded will be removed. The quicker you get this done, the quicker we can move on, and the quicker I can recruit for new players, including an Executive Officer.
