The year is 2394

The 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!


Captain Samuel Wentworth
Game Master/Webmaster (and Commanding Officer)
Asteria Division, Task Force 99 "Beyond the Bounds of Space and Time"
Bravo (Fourth) Fleet







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!

» Player of the Month

Posted on Monday February 19th, 2018 @ 9:20am by Captain Samuel Wentworth in Ship Awards

https://forum.bravofleet.com/forum/announcements/award-announcements/30238-monthly-awards-for-january-2018

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.


» Welcome Back!

Posted on Monday January 8th, 2018 @ 10:57am by Captain Samuel Wentworth in Sim Announcement

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.


» Security Arrangements

Posted on Saturday December 23rd, 2017 @ 10:20am by Captain Samuel Wentworth in New Players



Please join with me in welcoming Jake to the simulation as Lieutenant Ryder Jameson, who will be joining our Security & Tactical department in a newly created position of Chief Security Officer.

What I have done, after long discussions about the role and the character, I have opted to split the Security & Tactical department head role into two positions; with Jake taking on the Chief Security Officer role and Ensign Chris Wilkins will move over to the Chief Tactical Officer role and will play a part in ship tactics during missions.


» November 2017 Update

Posted on Friday December 8th, 2017 @ 1:25pm by Captain Samuel Wentworth in Monthly Updates

Captain's Address
We are moving forward with the simulation and the mission, so well done to everyone who has worked so very hard to get things moving. I'm really impressed with how everyone who has stuck with the simulation has pushed forward to get things going. We are almost at the end of the mission, only a few more things to write and then we can finally get some shoreleave before we move forward with a pretty fun mission that I have planned for next year.

November was a bit of a slow month but we can handle that, as we did have some players who were still on the manifest who didn't want to acknowledge emails or be part of the crew, so let's hope that with everyone here who wants to be active that we can push forward with our agenda of making this a great and very active simulation again.

As for Christmas, I can tell you right now that we will be suspending posting from the 18th December until the 8th January (so, three weeks). It normally is two weeks, but I wanted to have a bit more just to give everyone a chance to relax properly in readiness for the new year and what will be some quicker missions, as the last two missions we have done have been taking us almost an entire year to get finished. More details will be on the wiki on the Christmas/New Year Shutdown Policy page.

Ship Monthly Awards
Poster of the Month goes to Ensign Chris Wilkins for jumping straight into the mission and getting himself involved right away. I'm looking forward to seeing how our Chief Security/Tactical Officer is going to handle the Ambassador's aide when (or if) they get onboard.

I'm awarding the Most Improved award to Ensign Vincent Turner (aka Tom) for trying his hardest to get himself back into the simulation and the storyline, he has been a big part of pushing the storyline forward and we are closer to finishing this mission than I had thought we would after all the changes that have been going on around the place over the last month.


Mission & Department Objectives
Mission Objective(s)away team to find the Klingon Ambassador and get him safely back to the USS Cavalry
ship to be ready for any possible Klingon incursion should the away team be discovered. I know we aren’t suppose to use it, but the cloak needs to be ready.
any minor ship-based issues that need attending to
Commandbegin diplomatic communications with General K'Mortk and the Klingon Chancellor, try to find a diplomatic solution to the problem going on, try to keep them away from finding out that the away team is Starfleet-based and not civilian
any minor ship-based issues that need attending to
Flight OperationsNone at the moment, just to be ready for anything that we need to get away from quickly
Security/Tacticalbe ready to begin firing should the Klingons appear and want to get into a battle with us, we need to outgun them
OperationsNone at the moment
Engineeringroutine maintenance of the ship can be a priority. Within the storyline, it has been about seven months since we last visited a starbase for any repairs, so there could be things that need a check-up whilst we have the time
Sciencefinally getting work on that plot twist. The Ambassador is dying and we need to find a way to cure him before he dies and we can’t find a peaceful solution to the situation. Find something would be worth playing around with, work with the Medical team
Medical
& Counseling
work alongside Science on the above plot twist. All members of the crew need to have an update counselling session with the Chief Counselor before the end of the mission, hopefully before the away team comes back (PNPCs can be included in that as well)
Intelligencework along with the command team on diplomatic and communication strategies for the Chancellor and General K'Mortk, we need to know everything that there is to know about them, so we can work something out that suits them both and doesn't put us at a disadvantage. Will also need assistance on the upcoming plot twist to do with the Ambassador
Marine Detachmentmarine boot camp underway to get the marines into training for a possible incursion on the planet surface if the General finds out about our plans and launches some sort of tactical offensive against the away team or the planet itself. We will need the marines on ready five alert for the duration



Website Updates
Website is going great, no major issues reported. If you do find an issue, please let me know via Discord and we can sort it out as soon as possible.
