NCC - 77447 - B

Welcome to the USS Dreadnought!

Welcome to the USS Dreadnought - B, a Ascension Class Starship under the command of the Commanding Officer, Captain Ra Harvelli. The Dreadnought hopes to continue with interesting missions, high activity and a friendly crew, it's guaranteed that once you step on board, you will be welcomed and make many a new friend.

With spaces on board still waiting to be filled, we the crew are confident that we have something that interests you be it Science, Security, Tactical, or even the found to be popular Fighter Squadrons. If you fancy being a part of a family, being a member of an active team and crew, then fill in the join form, and we look forward to seeing you on board.

Having passed its 11th year of running the Dreadnought remains strong and active well on its way towards its 11th year of activity. It is the hope of myself and the crew that more people join in the fun and add yet more to already open and varied missions. All activity is on a forum which contains not just mission posts and activity but also Out of Character (OOC) input.

The Dreadnought is a Play By Nova style simm.

Commanding Officer, USS Dreadnought

Hello One and All,

Well it be that time if year again when we eat loads, drink more, exchange presents and enjoy good times.

This year has gone by quickly, too quickly it feels but here we are at the end of 2016.

This year has seen some new members join, some leave, updates to the simm itself and new missions marched through.

2017 will see some more changes come into play, I have a new story arc in draft that I hope will be interesting for players with sub plots to be had by all. I'll be in contact with people after the new year but for now....

Enjoy yourselves, have fun and try not to drink too much :p

See you in 2017.



» Another Year

Posted on Tue Nov 8th, 2016 @ 2:15am by Captain Ra Havrelli in General News

Hello One and All,

Well, we did it. Another year has passed seeing the Dreadnought reach it's 11th year. Time flew by very quickly this year it feels but we have reached this epic milestone.

I'd like to thank everyone that has past and present participated to help the simm reach this impressive accomplishment.

We have come a long way from where we started, changed class, met new friends, been subjected to what ever evil whim I so imagined at the time and yet you guys have stuck around. Pretty sure that would constitute a borderline mental illness somewhere for you guys.

I can't promise I wont torture, maim or otherwise inflict some form of mental or physical harm upon you this coming year but lets see what happens :)

I would say go see the Counselor but....we don't have one.

Kind Regards


» Some Changes

Posted on Tue Jun 7th, 2016 @ 3:16pm by Captain Ra Havrelli in General News

Hi All,

The transition from Forum to Nova has been completed, everyone has confirmed they have been able to log in to the system. The forums will remain active for any of the crew wanting to read up on some simm history or prior missions, it's all there in the mission section of the forums.

Moonsword is still tinkering with the skin and such for the Nova, any error codes or anything you get please let him know.

Another change that most will have noticed by now is S'iraa is being swapped for Ra Havrelli. While I have a fondness for playing Caitians I felt with this change from Forum to Nova I also needed to change things up for myself, but also for the simm since it had started off as Forum based a decade ago.

I have created to post which I believe I have added everyone to entitled 'Change of Command' which people can add to. I have also created an 'Chat and OOC' post as well for that sort of thing should people wish to use it. Just remember people that if it's a JP, only press Save until its completed and ready to be posted then post, for OOC Chat just click save. I expect mistakes to happen with this new system and for those unfamiliar with using it, any problems let me know.

Scary to think in another 5 months the DN will be 11 years old. Lol.

Thanks all, hope you enjoy the new layout of the simm.



» Today marks our Tenth Anniversary

Posted on Sat Nov 7th, 2015 @ 12:57pm by Captain Ra Havrelli in General News

Hello One and All,

Today is a rather special day. Back on 7th November 2005 the Dreadnought officially started as part of Task Force 86 in Bravo Fleet. Today marks our Tenth Anniversary. An entire decade of operations.

Since we started, over that decade the Dreadnought has grown and continuously developed with the contributions, aid and support of an ever evolving roster of members. Together we have seen the ship start as a Galaxy X Class Dreadnought, before moving on to the Ronin Class and then, more recently, transforming into an Ascension Class starship. We have seen members come and go, each leaving their respective legacy in the simms history. Some of us have changed characters over the years to keep the interest and creativity going. Together, with these characters you have helped to create a huge tapestry of work, with almost six-thousand posts (and that's counting JPs as just one!) to twenty-five missions, with our twenty-sixth just beginning.

I'd like to thank everyone both past and current for contributing, investing time and effort to create characters, content and even missions for the group to enjoy. I admit I wondered for a while if the simm would reach its first year, never mind its second, yet here we are at the summit of its tenth. Some of you have been with the simm since the start and be it with the same characters or new ones, you have stayed through ten years of me trying to create new and devious ways to harm you, torture you and generally subject you to my evil whims. One of these days we are going to finally need a Counsellor before we start sniffing Warp plasma!

In all seriousness though, thank you all for being a part of the simm. It has had faced paced lightning moments, it has had slow times and people have come and gone. I sometimes even find myself reading past missions just to immerse myself in the ships history and remember old times. There are some things I hope to improve simm wise such as awards, promotions, art, graphics and such - more content other than just mission posts. Stay tuned.

I had planned to get a cake, the only problem was that you guys are not here to share in its deliciousness, therefore leaving it to me to eat it all and in my greying, progressive years I don't think I could handle all that sugar. :D

In any case, thank you all again for helping the simm reach this point, to creating content for others to enjoy, for sticking with me and my antics for this long. I hope that together we can see the simm moving forward over the next year and more - here's to another decade.

Kind Regards,

Teh Kitteh
