The U.S.S. CAVALRY part of the Obsidian Fleet Task Force 47. Commanded by Michael Mimiaga,
The Cavalry's 5 year mission, is to explore space, and defend the United Federation of Planets. We are a Play-By-Email based
RPG group. Currently we are recruiting for all positions! If your an experienced RPG'er or have no experience at all! Your
welcome onboard the U.S.S. Cavalry, to apply go to the Obsidian Fleets Official Web site, listed below.
Located along the Romulan Neutral Zone, Obsidian Fleet (Federation 9th Fleet) is tasked with
maintaining a strong Starfleet presence and dealing with any threats to the Federation. Even in the face of newly renewed
peace talks with the Romulan Star Empire, there are other threats that loom to threaten the Federation. Rogue factions of
the Romulan and Klingon Empires are, as ever, a concern, but recently pirate activity has seen a rise as the major empires
of the Alpha and Beta quadrants are still busy rebuilding from the costly Dominion War, and the disaster of the Shinzon crisis
of 2379. In this time of uncertainty, with forces spread thin in an effort to adequately protect Federation interests in both
the military and civillian sectors, Starfleet has commissioned Task Force 47. Under the command of Rear-Admiral James Conrad,
TF47 has been tasked with strengthening the Federation's defenses against pirates, renegades, and defending against the continuing
possibility of renewed Romulan hostility. Welcome to one of the finest groups of PBEM & PBB sims that you will find anywhere.
Feel free to take a look around, browse the website, and maybe join a ship or two.

About Obsidian Fleet
The Loki system is located on the edge of the Federation/Romulan Neutral Zone. It's radition and
constant solar activity had wreaked havoc on it's sole populated planet, Obsidian.
In 2296, Starfleet, at the behest
of the Federation Council, established a small outpost on the planet. It's primary mission was to help the planets population
overcome the troubles caused by the degredation of it's ozone layer.
It would be a lie to say the task was easy. The
outpost was almost destroyed shortly after it's completion; yet now, almost a hundred years later, the desert planet of Obsidian
really does bloom. It's ozone layer has been repaired, and Federation terrafroming teams are bringing life back to the planet.
The fact remains, however, that the planet lies on the very edge of Federation space, only .9 of a light year from
the Romulan Neutral Zone.
In 2369, plans were put forward for the construction of a permanent starbase. It was passed
and construction began, only to be slowed a year later as the Dominion and Borg threats grew.
Construction was slow;
the war with the Dominion was taking up the majority of the Federation and Starfleet's resources. It was shortly after the
war that the Romulans offered to make the Starbase a Joint Venture. Starfleet accepted, and in 2376 the Starbase, newly painted
and named Starbase Obsidian, was completed. It was then that the reason for the Romulan cooperation became clear: the Borg
were attacking more and more regularly; ships were vanishing; and whole outposts went missing. In response, the Federation
Council and the Romulan Senate created a joint fleet. The 9th Federation Fleet and the 12th Romulan Fleet were combined to
create Obsidian Fleet. Their orders, to defend the Romulan/Federation Borders from any and all outside threats.
venture was not always easy. As the war ended, relations between the Federation and the Romulans cooled. The cooling was also
evident in Obsidian Fleet, where tensions between Federation and Romulan elements grew. After only one year, the Romulan government
pulled out of Obsidian Fleet, leaving Starfleet in control of the Fleet.
Obsidian Fleet continues to protect the Federation
into 2383, keeping an eye out for new threats to the safety of the Federation.
