Welcome to the USS Cavalry!

The year is 2394

The USS Cavalry, a Sovereign-class starship based in Bravo Fleet’s Task Force 99 is currently lost in the mirror universe under the command of Captain Samuel Wentworth, with no current way of getting home to their own timeline. Her regular mission, whatever is needed by Starfleet, mainly to return to the original mission of “exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where nobody has gone before”. Based in the year 2394, some six years ahead of the main Bravo Fleet timeline, the USS Cavalry is a unique opportunity to undertake a range of missions from simple patrol missions to first contact missions with new worlds, and even trying to maintain the peace between warring sides of the battle.

With the Hobus explosion now some 7 years in the past, the Romulan Empire is slowly rebuilding itself, but also rebuilding its image. The Klingon Empire is always on the lookout for victories, other species want a piece of the action, and the Federation stands ready to keep the peace and to keep the unity going. It’s an ongoing struggle to explore and to keep the peace, that is where ships like the USS Cavalry come into it. Out there, studying new life, watching over and offering their assistance, getting involved only when needed.


What do we offer?
We offer a regular-paced simulation where your posts guide what we do as a crew, as a team. Your posts are what make the mission. There is no “it’s my mission, do it my way” mentality here, there is an idea to the mission, but it is what you write that determines if it succeeds or fails. A website that makes posting easy through the Nova software. We also have our Discord server where players can chat with each other.

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.

We might now have the best-looking website going around, but it does the job for us. All of our posting is done right here, and we keep it looking nice and tidy. We are always improving on the website and making changes where needed to keep things updated so you know exactly what is going on. Our command team below are here to keep things operating smoothly around the website and Discord server and are always happy to answer your questions, so check us out on Discord or use the Contact form off to the side of the website.


Command Team
Commanding Officer, Game Master & Webmaster: Captain Samuel Wentworth
Executive Officer & Assistant Game Master: Currently Vacant - Apply Today!


Top Open Positions
At the moment, we are looking to fill our Executive Officer position as a matter of urgency, this would be someone with previous command and/or leadership experience in running a simulation. We also would love to fill our remaining departments with at least a leader, so positions such as Chief Flight Control Officer, Chief Security & Tactical Officer, Chief Science Officer and Chief Intelligence Officer. We are also very welcome to encouraging those who want to fill the Assistant Chief positions or one of the numerous enlisted and civilian positions to apply to join our simulation.

Regardless if you have 10 minutes of simming experience or you are a veteran, as long as you want to be part of the team here, you follow our rules and have a character biography that is to our standard as well as our standard of writing (we have a single posting style/format we all follow) then head on over to our easy application form and sign up today to fill one of our vacant positions. It doesn't have to be one of the ones above, it can be anything; we will work your position into our storylines as much as possible.

Some final words
I hope you enjoy looking around our website, we have our Discord server which you can join to ask us any questions, or just send through an email using the Contact form on the side of the page. I look forward to answering any questions you may have and hopefully we will see you soon join the team here on the USS Cavalry! We have been around since October 2007, so almost celebrating our 11th year as a simulation and we've been on the USS Cavalry now for well over 5 years, so the one thing you will get with us here is stability. We have no plans to shut this simulation down, nor do we have plans to give it up anytime soon, so you know that joining the team, you will have a simulation to enjoy your writing for many months to come.

We also have our Discord server at https://discord.gg/3kkqURX and we are more than happy to welcome you to the server to ask questions and see what it is all about. The whole crew are ready to answer any questions you might have before submitting your application.

On behalf of the entire crew, I want to thank you for looking around our website. We all stand ready to face the adventures that await. Come and join us.

» We Are Still Here!

Posted on Monday August 20th, 2018 @ 5:01pm by Captain Samuel Wentworth in Sim Announcement

Contrary to popular belief, we are still active everyone! The crew has had a meeting and we feel that it is best to keep going, we have unfinished business, we have a mission to complete and it would be unfair to the Task Force for us to give up on this simulation after so many years. For the record, we've been going for well over 6 years now!

We are opening our recruitment up even further, so we will be around more now and you'll see what we are all about. Loads of positions are open for applications. Our mission will be moving forward, even more, the crew have agreed as a group to work together to rebuild the simulation and I have all the hope and desire to keep this simulation going for many more years!

You'll be seeing much more from the Cavalry simulation into the coming months!


» Changes To Privacy Policies

Posted on Monday May 7th, 2018 @ 6:09pm by Captain Samuel Wentworth in Sim Announcement

https://forum.bravofleet.com/forum/announcements/bfa-announcements/30974-addressing-internet-privacy

I won't go into everything since you can read the above announcement from the Bravo Fleet Admiralty, but I can tell you all that over the next day or two, I will be developing a privacy policy for the simulation. It will address all of the details in the above fleet announcement and will ensure that prior to the introduction of any new legislation.

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.

The new privacy policy will be uploaded to the database over the coming days and will be linked throughout the website. I will provide a link to you all once that is completed.

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!


» Player of the Month

Posted on Monday February 19th, 2018 @ 3:20pm 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!


» Chief Medical Officer

Posted on Wednesday January 31st, 2018 @ 7:37pm by Captain Samuel Wentworth in New Players



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.
