Joining The Simulation


Cavalry-banner.png

The USS Cavalry has been part of Bravo Fleet since 4 June 2017, having been associated with another fleet since it's beginning all the way back to 5 March 2011. We have gone through a couple of changes since that date, but have been onboard and writing on the USS Cavalry since 1 October 2013. The USS Cavalry is tasked with a range of missions, so there is no knowing where we will be going next, and that is all up to what our players write in their posts and our missions are guided by our players. As you can see, the USS Cavalry is a forum-based simulation and all posts since 1 March 2016 have been completed on our forums, with our previous missions held on our old Nova website.

The USS Cavalry welcomes all players who wish to join us in our writing, regardless if you have 10 years of experience or 10 minutes; all players are welcome, and this includes transfers. We will work with you to make your transition to our simulation as seamless as possible and to make your time with us enjoyable. I warmly invite you to stay a while, browse our mission posts, check out our database for tips and advice to make your time with us enjoyable and fun and I hope to see you soon as a crewmember on the USS Cavalry.


The USS Cavalry, being a proud member of Bravo Fleet's Task Force 99 "Beyond the Bounds of Space and Time" and in accordance with our current storyline that has been running since we began, this simulation acknowledges the destruction of both Romulus and Remus and that we are simming in an era following such events.

Our Core Values

Tf99-logo.png

The USS Cavalry, since it's inception has operated on the five core values of Respect, Family, Teamwork, Quality & Friendship. We wanted to show that our simulation was different, but also that we came together for a common cause. In recent months and years, simming has gone away from it's core ideals and became more of politics and who can get the better of someone else, and we wanted the simulation to more of an enjoyable experience, where everyone feels welcome and everyone feels part of the team. It was a driving force behind our departure from our previous fleet and in joining Bravo Fleet, they share our common values and common goals towards creating a simming and writing environment for Star Trek RPG fans who just want to enjoy writing again, like it used to be. We all feel, as a collective group, that these five core values represent what it is that we are here for, what it is we are all doing, and the foundations that will continue to build the USS Cavalry into the future. We are a simulation that plans on being around for a long time, so we can provide our part of the world. Below, we have some thoughts about each of our core values and what they mean not just to those already on board, but an idea of what they mean to us and to prospective players who want to join the USS Cavalry: -

Respect

Family

Teamwork

Quality

Friendship

The USS Cavalry respects each other and the simulation as a whole. Every crew member respects one another, ensuring that everyone has due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others whilst onboard. We ensure that any differences we have are sorted out without resorting to rudeness and offensive language. We also respect the decisions made by the command staff and others, and are honest, and admit our mistakes and apologise for them if we know we are in the wrong. The USS Cavalry is first a foremost, a writing experience. But we are also a family. We are here for that reason, to write, and to enjoy writing. We don't want or like any drama going on unless it is solely within character. If you want to cause drama out of character, find another simulation because the USS Cavalry operates like a family unit. We all work with each other. There are times when solo mission posts are good, as they help to develop a character on its own, and a great muse for just taking some time away from the real world, to express yourself as your character, but when joint posts are needed or being done, working with each other for a common goal. We work on the basis that there is no need to always ask to write if you want to write with a fellow team member, then set a post up and start writing! We aren't always looking or going to reach for 100+ posts a month, every month. That just is not what we want. We want, as a team, to be able to write posts that are enjoyable and exciting to read. We can't ask everyone to write a novel with each post, but we look for the detail and description in our posts. Posts that leave the reader wanting more, that give the mission excitement or suspense, posts like that are what we love. Most of all, we are friends. Just like being a family, we don't want any drama, nor do we appreciate it. We are all here for one reason, and that is to write and to enjoy writing. People who just want to cause drama (unless it is in character) aren't welcome on the USS Cavalry. Everyone on the ship is approachable to ask questions, or for some advice. As long as you are ready to be a team player, then you are welcome to join.
