It seems the entire Bravo Fleet site has been down for the last several day, however it is back up now, and we will be able to post once again. Please feel free to write your individual posts or start your JPs so we can get this mission going.

Every year on the first Saturday in May since 2001 or so is FCBD.

All across the country (and possibly into Canada and the UK.) Comic book fans and general consumers alike will be lining up for their choice of one or more FREE comic books.

That's right this Saturday, May 6th 2017 is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). You can go to your local participating comic shop this Saturday only and pick up free stuff for the low-low cost of absolutely no money what-so-ever.

Many shops will also be having events such as a costume show, contests, drawings, and more, all for free.

I would really like to encourage everyone here to go. This year will be featuring the first issue of a ST:TNG series with a story arch seemingly to take place in the Mirror Universe. (Data with Borg parts? What!?) Within the scope of the TV show there has never been a TNG episode taking place in the Mirror Universe, and you get to enjoy part one of the series absolutely free.

If you are interested but don't know if you have a comic shop near you, please go to: and enter in your zip-code. Once there you can also find a link to the FCBD website and find a list with previews of the comics that may be available.

If you have any questions, or do not have a comic shop within an acceptable driving distance of you please contact your furendly neighborhood "Dog-tor Fuzzy-butt."

» The Beginning of a Mission and the Resumption of My Time

Posted on Thu Jan 26th, 2017 @ 2:54am by Captain Varik Raymond in General News

Welcome back cast and crew of Star Trek: Hope. It is with a posture of affirming pride and beaming joy that I return to this, your sim, and with a deeply humbled and hopeful heart that I return to her passageways, and to her bridge.

My name is David Joseph Moody, and I greatly, with all three names, appreciate your patience as I made my way over the past few weeks clear across the Federation from Earth, the Americas, north eastern seaboard, to catch up with you far beyond my past walks, along the exciting new Iconnu frontier.

It was back in 2011 that I, with Peter Bower, launched the olympic class starship Hope. Oddly, back then, Varik Raymond was a lieutenant commander who had taken years upon years to trickle upward in rank having started as an Ensign-ranked NPC I created specifically to work alongside the Catian Chief Enigeer of the first sim I began, Star Trek: Victory. If you wondered, that's the very same starship Victory that is rolling strong over in TF38 under the auspices of my former Executive Officer, Rhea Kennit. (Would you believe that it took until her player had worked on our shared story alongside me for a decade that her first name rhymes not with "onomatopoeia," but with "hey"? You should.)

On the Victory, back in my lovely, raunchy and 24th-century-laden thirties, Varik Raymond and a certain Doctor Farkas Amiri Vanth met, had mixed feelings about one another but got along, then had mixed feelings about one another, then had puppies, had mixed feelings about one another before they went, it seemed, their separate ways. As the fate we enscribe, you and I, would have it however, Lenti Utex, who was for a full decade my main character in sim life, found his way to the Admiralty shortly after I adjoined my sim to Bravofleet, offering canonization of the Victory into Bravofleet lore. As Peter and I incepted Hope, a platform within which I felt the Victory's former CMO would flourish, it seemed only to make sense that these puppy makers be thrown back together -- and they tried. To be entirely fair and honest, Vanth tried. It was Varik, reaching deep down into -- or copping out with, perchance, his logical Vulcanity that refrigerated the air between the two Starfleet officers. Would that it were, then, that their former Commanding Officer, Admiral Utex, had not seen fit (no really, he thought it was a good fit; he didn't know about any puppies of any damned sort) to place Varik in the Exec spot on the Round Tables's (see TF38's tales of BF Canon, thank you) medical explorer directly under Commanding Officer Vanth, who was somehow suddenly and magically qualified, like a certain Doctor Beverly or that greek-betazoid mass of hair from the 24th century cheerleader's squad, to command a starship. Varik, for his paret, didn't stick around too long. He muttered something about Vulcans not petting their furry offspring, much less having furry offspring, and just ... bolted.

And, which is never a good word to begin any sentence, much less a paragraph with, now the tables have turned. More to the point and far more precisely, the chairs ... have ... musicalled. And there have we. With the twenty-fifth century looming, Varik Raymond is certain he wants to be a child of the 80s (2380s), but time is running short.

Varik is back, and he has been tasked with briefly stopping at several ports of call in 72 -- Carwennan, Roosevelt and DS12, to pick up both Hope's crew and the requisite upgrades, renovation workers and refit pieces in preparation for Hope's slightly altered mission parameters: we are now tasked with establishing as many peaceful diplomatic ties as possible within the expanse from among those appropriate worlds we explore, encounter and/or study. As such, we will be taking on some diplomatic staff, as well as members of heretofore unheard of species -- especially extremophiles (yes! I love extremophile sports, like melt ball) for whom we'll have to make and maintain appropriate living spaces in the sphere. [Pinned idea: should we give that round forward section a special name, like cue ball, ball peen or balloon?] Engineering, you will be especially challenged to come up with creative ways to do this while still allowing for interaction between disparate species. You're in luck, however -- your hale and hearty Shannon has happily transmogrified into Hope's new Assistant Chief Engineer -- so be aware that I'll always have someone looking under my shoulder to be certain I'm doing it right.

I'm glad to be here, folks, and I'll do my best to be certain that each and every one of us are equally as glad.

To Hope!

» The end of a mission and the end of my time

Posted on Wed Nov 30th, 2016 @ 6:50pm by Lieutenant Commander Maxwell McNeil in General News

With the posting of the The Mystery Of The Artifact And Lost Memories, Part Three I am calling the current mission closed. At this time I am also announcing that as of today I am stepping down as the Commanding Officer of the . I will not be leaving the Fleet as I still have characters on other sims nor do I plan to leave the TF and will be looking for a sim here that could use a good engineer.

I have been the CO of the Hope for the last three years. During that time we have seen two of our players receive the player of the month award for TF 72 and as a Group we have won the Sim of the Month for TF 72 twice. I think that is something to be proud of especially since the Hall of Honor was not revived until 2015. The Hope has given me the opportunity to work with some creative writers and have enjoyed working with all of you.

I know that this announcement comes as a surprise to every one but because I am leaving does not mean the Hope has to close and it is my hope (pun intended) that she continues. You should expect a message from the TF CO inviting any one who would like to do so to apply for the CO position.

I was see you around the fleet.
