Welcome to the Discovery!

display this

The year is 2158 and Earth is at war. The Romulan Star Empire has attacked and destroyed Earth's first major outpost and after Minister Samuels' confusing response they are now embroiled in a war with an enemy that will not accept anything but their utter defeat. It's been a little more than two years since the war began and things are not going well for Starfleet. Starships, freighters and installations have fallen at the hands of the Romulan navy and the losses continue to mount.

Fearing the worst, and with the help of the Vulcan and Andorian governments, the shipyards at Utopia Planitia are churning out new ships at an astonishing rate. Thanks to the experience gained by the Enterprise and her explorations, a new class of ship was concieved using the NX-class as a foundation. The NX-refit boasts a secondary hull, enhanced weapons platforms, defense shields, and a Mark VI warp drive. These designs were on the backburner for Starfleet before the war, and now thanks to behind the scenes Coalition support, the new ships are quickly becoming a reality.

The refit process took a little longer to get to the NX-04, which had finished construction around the onset of the war and only as a standard NX-class, but it was eventually refitted and launched at the beginning of 2158. These new ships, Starfleet hoped, would turn the tide of the war in their favor and bring it to a swift end.

So what are waiting for, do your part for humanity, and the Coalition, join the Discovery today!

Hello and welcome to the NX-04 Discovery. My name is JP and I play the captain of the Discovery, Benjamin Isakov. This game came about because I wanted to incorporate role-playing elements in a Star Trek play by email game. That and having rewatched Enterprise again. No more are the major events of a game determined by the game master, now they'll be influenced by chance. Now we react to events rather than creating events to react to. Under attack? We might easily defeat the enemy, or we might narrowly escape defeat ourselves.

Feel free to explore the site, check out the crew bios, read the wiki page and read our mission posts to see what we're about. To view current opening, check out the 'Personnel' tab at the top of the page and toggle open positions.

So a bit of good news and a bit of bad. I'll start with the bad first. Brandon, our XO has been inactive for almost 2 months and after trying to contact him with no reply, I've decided to deactivate his character. I wish him the best and if he wants to join back up in the future, I'd love to have him aboard.

Now for good news! Yay! I'd like to welcome aboard Ben, who will be playing our Chief Helmsman, Ensign Aeron Llewellyn Hughes.

Welcome him aboard by starting some joint posts with him! Feel free to back post back post if need be, just be sure to indicate it.

So regardless of the staffing changes, I'd like to go ahead and get the mission started, so let's get to it!

» Sample Posts & Roll Call

Posted on Mon Aug 21st, 2017 @ 8:35am by Commander Benjamin Isakov in General News

Hey all- I noticed that a lot of you used your sample post as an opportunity to introduce your character, bring up their history a little bit and so on.

Please feel free to post those on the site if you used a different template other than "It's 0300 and the ship is called to red alert" sample post. If you no longer have access to that email, let me know and I can send you a copy.

~JP (Cmdr Isakov)

PS- there's a few of you who haven't responded to any joint posts and messages. So I'm going to ask for a roll call to make sure that everyone on the roster is still with us. Just shoot me an email or a PM through the site.

It's happening!!!

I'd like to welcome aboard Marcus who will be playing our Chief Medical Officer, Jaqobus (Jack) Gaius! His character is a special one as his true backstory is hidden from the public record. Not even the captain knows! Be sure to give it a read when you get a chance.

And with our new addition, we'll also be beginning our story!

I'd like to thank everyone for their patience, and I hope you're all as eager as I am to get the ball rolling! I'll be starting the joint post with everyone soon, so stayed tuned.

Also there are still some of you who haven't registered their character on Bravofleet's site. If this is you, please do so. That way people can see how many players we have and the higher ups in Bravofleet can see that we mean business.

» Hang In There

Posted on Sun Aug 6th, 2017 @ 8:34am by Commander Benjamin Isakov in General News

Hey there everyone- hope you're all having a fun summer.

Just wanted to apologize for the delay in getting our mission started. I've been waiting until we have at least six people that way we can have most of the senior positions covered and fewer NPCs doing important things.

Of course, pretty soon that's what's going to have to happen. I don't intend to sit on my hands waiting for people to apply. If we don't get more people by the end of August, I'm going to go ahead and start our first mission.

If any of you would like to create an NPC character and do a joint post with me or anyone else for that matter, please feel free to do so.

Once again- sorry for the delay!

~JP

Posted on Thu Jul 6th, 2017 @ 1:03am by Commander Benjamin Isakov in General News

Hey gang- happy to see some of you are uploading character images. Awesome!

On that note, I can offer my services on making an IC avatar for you, as I have experience doing that. Check out Isakov's picture to see my work. Just email me or PM me on here and I'll make it happen. If you don't like it, it won't hurt my feelings one bit, and you can always put in a request on the bravofleet forums.

Also please make sure you all register your characters on Bravofleet.com , that way we can become an active simm. If you need help, just let me know.

Thanks!

One thing was certain though, there…
