Welcome to the USS Pandora!

Welcome to the USS Pandora!

Trek Into the Wild

The USS Pandora is a Play By Nova Star Trek Simulation game, where players are thrust into an exciting adventure to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

We are a newly built Luna Class Federation Starship travelling the dangerous and unknown territories of the Inconnu Expanse, as part of Bravo Fleet's 72nd Task Force,in the year 2388. We are a vessel designed for long-term, multipurpose missions into unchartered territory. On our journeys we will contact new species, establish a Federation presence in a hostile region, come into conflict with the known and unknown, investigate and discover spacial anomalies, while unravelling the secrets of the treacherous Inconnu region. As a member of this crew, you are the audience, the writers, and the history-makers of the USS Pandora. Every Player onboard this ship can contribute to our missions, plot discussions, personal stories, and the legacy of this fine vessel.

Sometimes we may know our destination, sometimes just an inkling of a pathway - either way it is up to us as a crew to make this journey together.

Are Your Brave Enough To Join Us?

We require Chief Officers for the following departments:

Flight Control / Helm
Stellar Cartography

We also require Assistant Chiefs and Department Staff for all Departments, as well as our extensive new Recreation Deck facilities.


"We are seeking bold explorers, curious scientists, brave warriors, and dependable officers for a brand new deep-space mission into unchartered and dangerous territory. The Pandora welcomes all willing and passionate writers to join our growing community and contribute to our unique stories." 

- Lieutenant Commander Temple, Commanding Officer

» Van Kolbeck (Wes) - TF72's Player of the Month

Posted on Thu Mar 23rd, 2017 @ 8:40am by Commander Nycolas Temple in General News

Greetings all,

It really is both a pleasure and a pain to nominate just one of you each month for the Player of the Month Award. You're all doing such wonderful work, participating in the sim, writing fantastic posts, contributing to the mission. Choosing only one of you for recognition each month only gets harder as we continue on simming, and as more great players join us.

Having said that, it is absolutely my privilege to announce that Wesley, aka Lieutenant Van Kolbeck, has been awarded Task Force 72's Player of the Month Award by Bravo Fleet.

Wes has brought a spirited, conscientious, and collaborative character to life with Van Kolbeck. I always enjoy reading his posts and he's contributed consistently to the sim since he joined.

Congratulations to a wonderful player on this well-deserved recognition.

Check out the announcement here.

» Cailus Griffin - TF72's Player of the Month

Posted on Sat Feb 18th, 2017 @ 1:15am by Commander Nycolas Temple in General News

It is with great honour that I can share our very own Cailus Griffin has been awarded Task Force 72's Player of the Month Award.

Suliac/Mr Griffin was nominated because he consistently creates well-crafted, realistic, and character-focused posts for the sim, as well as having one of the highest activity levels onboard. Griffin is regularly initiating posts with other players, creating storylines, providing ideas, and actively contributing to the wider sim.

You can view the full announcement here.

Entirely well deserved recognition for a wonderfully talented player.


» New Fleet Management System

Posted on Sun Jan 22nd, 2017 @ 5:29am by Commander Nycolas Temple in Website Update

Greetings Crew, here's a message from Bravo Fleet:

Over a decade ago, Bravo Fleet launched the Task Force Management System (TFMS). While TFMS has served us well, the Fleet's needs have grown. We've made adjustments to TFMS and launched new services like the FNS, but ultimately the needs for a more comprehensive overhaul has become evident. And so today, it is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of the Bravo Fleet Management System, a system that:

+ replaces TFMS, the bravofleet.com homepage, the Fleet News Service, the Hall of Honours, and the Bravo Fleet Graphics site;
+ adds new features for every player in our Fleet such as a player dossier (with all of your awards and characters) and service requests; and
+ will someday serve as a single point of access to all of Bravo Fleet's core internet services through a centralized Bravo Fleet account.

BFMS goes live today!

What you need to do:

1) Create your Account on the new BFMS

2) Create your Characters (from the Pandora and any other sims you may be on.)

That's it!

The sooner everyone adds their characters to the BFMS, I can add you to the Pandora manifest on the new system.

If you need any assistance, please feel free to PM me. You can view the full announcement HERE!

» Congratulations!

It is with great pride that I can announce the USS Pandora has won Task Force 72's Similation of the Month Award. We received the award due to our strong activity since launching and for taking off with our first mission.

You can view the announcement here:

As I said at the start of the month, I am extremely thankful that you all chose to join the Pandora and have contributed so much already to this new sim. This award is a recognition of your involvement and work over the past month and as your CO, I couldn't be prouder to captain this crew.

So let's celebrate the honour of this win and get stuck into our fantastic posts again.

Congratulations to you all - the crew of the Award Winning USS Pandora.


» We apologise for the inconvenience

Posted on Mon Jan 16th, 2017 @ 9:21am by Commander Nycolas Temple in General News

Hello crew,

It appears we are hopefully back up and running again after the server move. To explain, Bravo Fleet Admirality had to move to everything BF related (the main site, forums, and sims hosted by BF, like ours), to a larger and more dependable server. This was undertaken after consideration of the performance, reliability and sustainability of the Fleet's infrastructure demands for the future of our Fleet.

Unfortunately, as explained by our Lt. General P'Trell, a blizzard knocked out the power to an admin who was working on the migration, causing problems to hosted sim sites and the BF forums. Thus we experienced the problems on the Pandora site over the weekend.

Bravo Fleet Admirality, Lt. General P'Trell, and myself extend our sincere apologies for the interruption to your simming experience and thank you for your patience while we resolved the issues. If you have any further questions, queries, or complaints please don't hesitate to contact me.

There may still be some gremlins in the system and please report them if you experience any problems.

However, let's get back to writing and creating those wonderful posts you've been making.

Cmdr Temple
