Welcome to the USS Excalibur!
NCC-77900-A

In a world where one species has been rocked to their very core, another has lost everything they ever held dear to them, and both are bent on showing that they can recover in vastly different ways. All it takes is one shot to the bow and hell might break loose. Add into that one race that may choose to take advantage of all the chaos and it looks like a recipe for disaster.

The Raeyan Transit Corridor, the buffer zone between two of these races is the only thing that separates them both from all-out battle; add to that tensions and only Bravo Fleet’s Task Force 93 is there to stop these two races from trying to take each other out of the equation. The peace must be kept, not for everyone’s sake but the corridor is simply the only avenue between the sanctuary of the Beta Quadrant and the Raeyan sector, an incredibly varied region of space, boasting a plethora of habitable planets, species, stellar phenomena and a transwarp gate to the Round Table region of the Delta Quadrant.


The USS Excalibur recently converted to an Ascension-class starship is ready to serve in Task Force 93. The Ascension-class starship is one of the most advanced and most powerful vessels ever built by Starfleet. Rated for combat, exploration, scientific, diplomatic, and logistics missions, the 1,600 member crew is dedicated to serving at the forefront of Starfleet and the Federation.

Task Force 93 has served as a peacekeeping force along the Romulan border for the last half-decade. Following the Hobus hypernova of April 2387, it temporarily operated within Romulan space to provide support. In September 2387, the Treaty of Nelvana resealed the Romulan borders introduced the new Raeyan Transit Corridor, a sliver of Federation space between the Romulan and Klingon Empires. Task Force 93 became responsible for maintaining this new corridor, as well as for conducting operations in the Raeyan Sector beyond.

» February Monthly Update

Posted on Mon Mar 4, 2019 @ 7:44am by Captain Anthony Richardson in Monthly Update

Crew
Look, I won't sugarcoat this one. We are down to 2 crewmembers and we really are lacking in the recruitment department. We have lost both the other players who were onboard and haven't been able to actively recruit any new players in February.

Posting & Activity
Falling very short of our target, we only completed 2 posts all last month.

Mission Recap (so far)
Currently, we are at Providence Fleet Yards and this month we will be heading off, hopefully soon. We now have the new ship into the storyline and we can get settled into the new surroundings. I would like to focus this month on moving through to the end of MD01 and MD02, and later on in MD02, we will be departing Providence to head out on our main mission.

Player of the Month
No player of the month award this month.

Fleet News & Updates
If you haven’t already, please ensure you have signed up for the BFMS (http://bravofleet.com) and created your character and had them assigned to the USS Excalibur. This way, both our website and fleet manifest are correct. Away from that, the USS Excalibur has been transferred to become a BFA simulation as I was appointed as the new Community Relations Officer within the fleet. A new banner will appear on the site shortly.

Final Thoughts...
Don’t forget our Discord channel at https://discord.gg/UgzHNnc and when you are on there, let me know your username so I can set the right permissions for you. In summary, we had a great January, it was positive to see where the simulation has come in such a short space of time, and I think with the same level of effort from everyone, we will see even bigger things over the rest of this year.


» January Monthly Update

Posted on Sun Feb 3, 2019 @ 7:40am by Captain Anthony Richardson in Monthly Update

So this is the first of our monthly updates. I want to do these every month to give you an in-character and out-of-character update about the simulation. I hope you find these useful as we build the simulation to great heights.

Crew
The only person who has left this month was Steve (Commander Wren) due to personal reasons, but I have said to Steve, who was instrumental in a lot of what is on this website, that he is welcome back whenever he feels ready to come back to simming. Other than that, everyone has joined us which is great to see that we are now sitting at 4 crew.

Posting & Activity
We completed 20 posts this month, and yes, some of them were from the old website in order for the storyline to have some meaning and prior context but overall, it has been a positive month for the simulation. I want us to target a total of 25 posts this month, I think it is achievable.

Mission Recap (so far)
Currently, we are at Providence Fleet Yards and this month we will be heading off, hopefully soon. We now have the new ship into the storyline and we can get settled into the new surroundings. I would like to focus this month on moving through to the end of MD01 and MD02, and later on in MD02, we will be departing Providence to head out on our main mission

Player of the Month
I am awarding a player of the month each month to the player who I feel has made the best contribution to the simulation and has been a great team player. It won’t always be the most posts, but someone who I feel deserves recognition for the part they play on the simulation. The first player of the month is Lieutenant JG John Stevens

Nate took the short walk from the turbolift to the short-term offices that were on the base. It wasn’t the biggest base, but it did the job that was needed for Providence and for Task Force 93. He knew most of the decks were filled with random things, a lot…
