NCC - 77447 - B

Welcome to the USS Dreadnought!



Welcome to the USS Dreadnought - B, a Valkyrie Class Starship under the command of the Commanding Officer, Fleet Captain Ra Morrisaati. 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 14th year of running the Dreadnought remains strong and active well on its way towards its 14th 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 18+ Play By Nova style simm.




Signed,

Fleet Captain Ra Morrisaati
Commanding Officer, USS Dreadnought

Posted on Sun Nov 7th, 2021 @ 7:37pm by Fleet Captain Ra Morrisaati in General News

Hello One & All.

Today is a special day for the simm, it turns 15 years old.

It's been a long journey especially for those that have stuck with it since the start and a massive thank you to those that have stayed through thick and thin, the death antics I subject you to all the way to the quiet times of activity. From starting in a Play By Forum set up and moving to a Nova many, many years later, from one fleet to another, it's continued in one class or another to what it is now.

Recently the simm was relaunched with a fresh outlook, new perspective and an even keel in terms of focus when it comes to missions, content and character development. I'd spoken to the player base who said they would stay so massive thank you for the dedication and loyalty that's been shown. Some of the additions will be awards, IC promotions, better encouragement for crew to interact with others as well as plot development opportunities for character development outside the norm. One change I am keen to do is play more on what the ship can do rather than it be just a generic 'ship'. The Valkyrie class has a lot to offer and can do a lot in terms of content but has not been fully used in any meaningful way for a mission or a long term plot arc.

I'd like to change that.

It's my hope that with a more involved hands on approach, a renewed eagerness to write I can not only continue to present a setting in which to create content on, but also develop the characters over time with the knowledge that the simm will not vanish out of the blue. Last month we broke 20 posts, which was exactly what I was hoping to do so already we are off to a good start. I know I have said before it's not about numbers but content however there needs to be content, doesn't look good if the Fleet XO's Flagship is not content creating.

Thank you to all and let's see what another year of the Captain trying to kill people brings.

Regards

Steve





» Crew Changes

Posted on Sun Mar 28th, 2021 @ 6:33pm by Fleet Captain Ra Morrisaati in General News

I would like to start by welcoming two new members to the simm.

Lieutenant Gavin Ross will step into the role of Chief Medical Officer, Lieutenant Nimeeh Vixil has agreed to stay on as Assistant CMO to aid in treating the crew of the injuries that....befall them.

The next is Lt.Jg Reagan Quinn who takes over the role of Chief Engineering Officer. The player behind Dr Omier agreed to step aside for the new arrival but also stay on in an assistant role. Its a big job after all keeping the ship intact from the chaos I subject up on it.

Sadly though our CAG, Lt Karl Scheer has opted to resign due to RL reasons, I won't go into them as that would be rude but the door will be open should he wish to return later in the future.

Till then, try not to frighten the new folks too much, I'm not all that bad....mostly.

Welcome folks.

Greetings to the crew of the USS Dreadnought.

As a member of Pegasus Fleet Admiralty and as the Task Force Commanding Officer for the USS Dreadnought, it is with a great amount of pleasure and pride that I relay this message from the Pegasus Fleet Commanding Officer.




Hello @everyone,

I have a special announcement. I'd like to give a huge congratulations to one of our commanding officers and Pegasus Fleet Executive Officer, Vice Admiral S'iraa.

As Captain William Hood, he has led the USS Dreadnought sim for fourteen years, which celebrates its birthday on November 7.

Along with Captain Hood, five other members of his crew; Mark Bawden, Jack Frost, Zan Luthar, Xavier Patrovski, and Ayla Bawden; have been with the sim since the beginning.

That kind of longevity deserves to be recognized, and so each of them will be granted the Meritorious Service Award. This new award will be given to players who have surpassed 10 years of consecutive service on a single sim.

In recognition of Captain Hood's accomplishment, on behalf of the Pegasus Fleet Admiralty I hereby promote him to Fleet Captain.

Congratulations to Fleet Captain Hood and the USS Dreadnought for their impressive run so far, and for many more years to come!




Congratulations to all of you who have made this sim the success that it is. Your efforts are not unnoticed and we are all very proud of your accomplishments. Here's to many years ahead.

Happy Simming

Rear Admiral Niamh Devane
Pegasus Fleet Admiralty

Hi All,

So I've been a little behind in my tasks on the Dreadnought because of my recovery. Its been a little rough, ups and downs as expected but I'm slowly catching up.

A belated welcome to Lieutenant Amélie D'Aramitz who has taken it upon herself to take up the task of looking out for our mental well being as Chief Counselor. Considering most of you have been on the simm for over 12 years now she will have her hands full or I've not tried hard enough to kill everyone...I'm working on that.

Next is our newest member, Lieutenant JG Tavana Daughter of Kretorg. Taking up the mantle of Chief Intelligence Officer. I know we have been without one for some time so I'm glad to have one especially with this mission now underway.

Please try not to scare them away, pretty sure Tavana will bite back if you guys try anything.

Just realised that in 5 months the Dreadnought will be 14 years old. Talk about accomplishment.

Oh last thing, site updates are coming to reflect the change of class, I know the header still has the old class but I'm working with people to change it. You don't want me doing it because I break things.

Regards


Steve

Hello One and All,

It's a pleasure to announce that one of our posts has been voted on and seen to be the winner of Pegasus Fleet post of the Month for March 2019.

Mark, our Chief Tactical Officer write a very touching post "Lost, But Never Forgotten" which continues the plot line developed between Ayla and Mark surrounded the loss of their daughter, Marcie.

The post can be found here: https://ussdreadnought.com/index.php/sim/viewpost/350

I myself have been following the plots these two talented players have been creating between each other for the last 10 years, remembering from where they started to where they are now and the ups and downs in between.

I hope to see more of our posts being selected as the fleets post of the month.

Congratulations Mark
