Welcome to the Discovery!
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. Almost one-third of the fleet has 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 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, the Coalition 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.

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.

Hey all just wanted to let you all know we are now updated to the most recent version of Nova, which apparently fixes a few bugs and whatnot.
What does this mean for you? Not much, just hopefully fewer problems. Also if you were trying to access the site around 10:30-11PM CST, you probably weren't that successful as I was updating the site. (And learning HOW to update as well)
