The Frontier is ready to push back.

On Stardate 65790.5, a 100-year old probe emerged from the Finnean Convergence Zone in the Gamma Quadrant. Most of the data it contained was corrupted, save for what remained of an emergency beacon. The message it carried was one of danger and warning, delivered by none other than Captain Harvey Geisler.

Recalled from Shore Leave in the Alpha Quadrant, Captain Geisler summons the best Starfleet has to offer and takes command of the USS Black Hawk-A. Their destination is the mysterious Finnean Convergence Zone where nothing has ever gone in, and whatever has ever emerged, has not emerged alive.

But somewhere, inside the zone, awaits both incredible opportunities for exploration, and perhaps the greatest danger the Federation has ever faced. Can the crew of the USS Black Hawk find this threat before it is too late?

» Bravo Fleet 2017 Quarter 1 Report

Posted on 25 Apr 2017 @ 4:19pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Out of Character

Hi everyone,

For those who are interested in what's been up lately with Bravo Fleet, especially since the leadership change at the start of the year, here's a nice report from the Command Council that you can review at your leisure.

Enjoy!

You can read the full report (as a PDF) HERE.


» Season 3 Begins

Posted on 21 Apr 2017 @ 6:03pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Mission Update

With the release of "Message In A Bottle," Season 3 is now underway! You will have received an OOC with Recall Orders. Please finish up your Shore Leave and head for Deep Space 9. The Mission Notes will also be released after the Senior Staff meeting.

Senior Staff, the briefing will start on Monday. Hopefully, we can blaze through that and get on the road.

Everyone else, go ahead and report aboard. I'll play the Chief of the Boat if you want to check in with him. All of the details for the Black Hawk-A are on the wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.


» Season 2 Complete

Posted on 01 Apr 2017 @ 1:26pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Sim Announcement

Everyone,

It is my pleasure to announce that Mission 10: Endgame, and Season 2 as a whole, has come to an end. For me, this has been an incredible journey. When I first reactivated the Black Hawk a little more than three years ago, I did not know that I would be crash landing her on New Bajor. More importantly, I did not know that I would be simming with all of you to chronicle the many stories this sim would explore.

Thank you.

Per our traditions, I have a few awards to announce:

The Full Circle Award will be granted to all crew. This will be your testament of your participation in this mission. (It's not on the sim yet, so bear with me.)

The Player of the Mission, as voted by you, is Captain Harvey Geisler.

Likewise, the Post of the Month goes to "Saying Goodbye" written by Harvey Geisler.

(I sense a conspiracy among the crew voting for their captain...)

Finally, I wish to recognize a specific player from among the crew. I did not get the chance to announce this earlier, but our very own Christina (Lt. JG Gemma Alexander) was awarded Bravo Fleet's Player of the Month Award for February 2017. It was an honor to nominate her for this, especially since she has been a very active part of the game for more than a year. She may be overzealous at time with her tags, but her contributions have certainly been well received.

In addition to this recognition, Gemma will also be promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. Congratulations, Lieutenant.




Now, it is time to move on. Mission 11: Shore Leave is our focus. This is giving me time to reformat the site and the wiki for the new Century Class. In fact, the Wiki overhaul is nearly complete! You can start learning about our new ship HERE! If you look carefully at even the front page of the wiki, you might get a clue or two about our next mission!

And now, some housekeeping. There are two VERY important things I need to bring to everyone's attention. As your CO, I have learned a lot while working with you all. Because of this, I have had to update our RULES. Among them are two major changes:

- All players are expected to publish a post every two weeks. This does not mean to log in once every two weeks and hit tags. We also understand that real life can change on an instant with each and every one of us. If, for some reason, this requirement cannot be met, please contact the CO and we will be more than happy to waive requirements or make other arrangements for you.

- Several new guidelines are in place for Player-Connected NPCs (PNPCs). Among them is now a limit. Players are allotted a maximum of THREE PNPCs. Please choose wisely.

Please review the rules at your convenience, but be aware that they will be in full effect beginning Friday, April 7th.

As I prepare to convert the site to the new Century Class, I will be pruning and modifying the manifest. As such, those of you who have PNPCs, please alert me to who you wish the keep and if you wish to add. Those of you who had a PNPC on the Cochrane, let me know if you want to keep that character. If I don't hear by April 7th, I will be purging the character from the system.

Finally, I wish to thank ALL of you for a fantastic mission and season. Season 3 will be a vast departure from everything we just went through and will be a return to the core of what Star Trek is. I am looking forward to it, and I hope you are too!

Happy Simming!

-Andrew / Captain Geisler


» What Happens Next?

Posted on 22 Mar 2017 @ 2:10pm by Captain Harvey Geisler in Out of Character

Hi everyone,

Now that our fine starship is gone, I've been asked by many people "What Happens Next?"

Out of Character, the mission is over. Any debriefings or farewells or whatever among all of the crew will slow down us getting to the next phase of the mission. That said, if you want to JP any of that with select crewmembers, may do so without recourse or issue.

We'll be launching into our first official mission of Season 3, "Message In A Bottle" in mid-April. Between now and then, please take advantage of our "Shore Leave" mission.

That leads me to In Character.

It will take a couple weeks, In Character, for everyone to be processed by Starfleet reinforcements. Essentially, everyone serving in the Gamma Quadrant, especially survivors of fallen starships, will be processed, debriefed, and granted Shore Leave to recover from the intensity of situations in the Gamma Quadrant. Your characters are permitted to go wherever they wish in the Alpha, Beta and Gamma quadrants.

When it comes time to be "reactivated" ... well, your character will receive orders. Be on the lookout for those in mid-April.

If you have questions about this, don't hesitate to ask via Discord or PM. I'll be more than able to help you all out with that. Also, as of now, my LOA is in official effect. I'll see you all Sunday night.

On a final note, and I know I keep saying this, but I just can't help myself... Thank you all for everything. I know we've had wonderful days and rough patches. Such is life, really. Thank you all for sticking with it and being patient as we've worked through those issues. You've ALL made the Black Hawk one of the finest games in the interwebs.

-Andrew


» We Have Moved ... Again...

Posted on 10 Mar 2017 @ 12:06am by Captain Harvey Geisler in General News

I know it's our 2nd time in a month, but we have moved servers once more. This is due to an unexpected fault. The site is still up and running, and it's set up to feed off of the same database, so you will be able to get in and tag/post. Just please try not to upload for 24 hours unless you're willing to risk that flashy new character avatar disappearing...
