Welcome aboard HMS Broadsword (CA-47), the proud and growing northern Arizona chapter of the Royal Manticoran Navy, the Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. We cover the Phoenix West Valley and the rest of Northern Arizona, our members come from all kinds of backgrounds, but we all join together to celebrate science fiction, having fun, and doing it all with Honor!
Broadsword is under the command of Captain (JG) Davies, assigned to the Eighth Fleet (Mountain States) commanded by Rear Admiral Roberts, defending the Basilisk System and its terminus, which is vital to the health of the Star Kingdom of Manticore. We follow in the footsteps of great commanders, and through our service to the Crown, hope to join that list of honor. Eighth Fleet has a long and glorious history, and was the main offensive force against the Republic of Haven during the 1st Havenite-Manticoran War. Previous commanders have included Lord White Haven and Lady Harrington.
For those unfamiliar with the Honor Harrington novels written by David Weber, many of which are free to read electronically. The first two are available through the BaenBooks website. Start with On Basilisk Station. If you like it, one of our crew would be more than happy to lend the rest, until you’ll want to buy your own. If you wish to join, please contact our commanding officer, and check out the TRMN website.
