We are shadows in the dark ever searching for the light of truth.
We are defenders of the lost, weak, infirm and oppressed.
Our enemy’s death is wrapped in silence, for non can hear them scream in space…~ Iunctus armis ad victoriam ~
JΛvelin will maintain, train and equip combat-ready Pilots, crewmen and Security Operatives capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom from tyranny. We are not just hired guns. We will decline any mission whose intent is to use force to subjugate others. We defend the lost, weak, infirm and oppressed. We explore the farthest reaches of space for knowledge, trade and opportunities to expand the human race. Quality will be chosen over quantity in everything. Our structure is loose with regards to rank but our adherence to the military ethos is unwavering. Honor, courage, and commitment is our foundation, teamwork our goal. JΛvelin operators are not Pirates or Brigands. We are just and on the lawful side of rogue. We do the deed. What we need to do to get the job done. If a few bad people drop along the way…. well that’s just a bonus.
External of Javelin’s organic assets we are a fully realized Joint Task Force (JTF) management platform called the “Special Operations Group”. Supplying dedicated TeamSpeak3 communications with private/locked Org channels with secure Embassy rooms on the JSOG Forums for each group. By providing a canopy organization made up of vetted and similarly minded leaders we leverage the strengths of each member group. That small team of friends that made an Org is now supported similar to a MUCH larger group without having the problems associated with a 500+ member Org, AND you keep your identity.
The JSOG Academy is dedicated to developing our citizen members with Courses and Lessons spanning from Basic Infantry to Advanced Piloting and Systems Management. So no matter if you are a Shooter or Engineer you can pursue JSOG Academy Certification in your profession.
BE WARNED! This is a salty unit and as such we tend to have lively conversations not suitable for minors or the easily offended. Hate, bigotry, and sexism will not be tolerated. Dirty jokes, coarse social commentary, and drinks are always welcome.
We started back in 2000 with three friends (GunHog, VV0X, and Circuitz) wanting to create a tight-knit group of gamers on Steam (PhatPipe). Joined later by Ed the tradition continues. As professional R&D/IT geeks, patented inventors, gamers (Steam, COD, BF, STO, SWG, WarBirds….etc) and military combat veterans. Our focus has always and will continue to be on; quality gameplay, camaraderie, respect, and loyalty.
Organizational Affiliations are welcome. Navigate to our JSOG forums Embassy, twitch feeds and NEWS by following the links at; www.JavelinSOG.Com
In 2910 the Vanduul attacked the SQ42 Carrier battle group. One year later after the UEE build up in that quadrant things heated up again. Right on the front lines was an auxiliary unit temporarily formed of six volunteer fighter pilots. Experienced and deadly, they were tasked with baiting the Vanduul using hit and run tactics in an effort to lure them into a trap. They did just that and more during the running thirty-minute battle. By the time the Vanduul reached the designated ambush coordinates not much was left for Commander Aria Reilly’s kill fleet to jump on top of.
UEE Admiral Eustace J. Fletcher commander of the operation was so impressed. He asked the six pilots if they would be willing to form a dedicated special operations team. To a man, they said yes. Thus was born Javelin Special Operations Group. During the next two years, the group picked up another 18 pilots. Chosen for exceptional skills ranging from space combat, electronic warfare, and scouting. The pilots all shared two commonalities. A ruthless ability to get the job done and stay alive. Admiral Fletcher knew the only way to handle this group of misfits was to give them a bone to chew on and keep them away from the rest of his flight teams. It worked and a lot of Vanduul or what’s left of them ended up forever floating frozen in space.
Javelin only lost one flight team during those two years. Pilot Lt Starstrider and EWAR Technician Chief Cooper died during a data acquisition and scouting mission deep in Vanduul space. A flight of twenty heavy fighters jumped in right on top of Lt Starstrider just as he was pulling his Herald out from behind his hiding place in some drifting wreckage. Ill-equipped to fight twenty heavies they ran. The Black box later retrieved told the story. The Herald was much faster than the fighters and the Vanduul knew it. All twenty fighters fired their missiles. While maneuvering against the missiles Lt Starstrider could not jump. Chief Cooper defeated eighteen of the missiles with ECM and chaff. Two missiles got through but not before the Chief transmitted his full data load to the battle fleet.
After Admiral Fletcher was promoted and reassigned. The powers that be decided to shut down Javelin operations in favor of more conventional (and easier to handle) units. During the decommissioning party the inevitable question was asked of the skipper; “What’s next Sir”? and he drunkenly answered; “I bet we would get paid a hell of a lot more doing this shit for some fat transport company! Command don’t want Javelin around anymore, so fuck-em! Let’s go make some money…. “ At this point, most of the command staff and pilots for Javelin were eligible to resign their commissions. Rather than get reassigned to line squadrons they all walked. JavelinSOG Inc was formed six months later in 2913. The combat squadron was named for Lt Starstrider’s Herald tail number 222 he called Hard Six for his love of the old earth game of dice.
JɅvelin and it’s Special Operations Group will maintain, train and equip combat-ready Pilots, crewmen and Marines capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom from tyranny.

No, military service is NOT required to join JSOG. Many of our members however have served in their countries military and we very much appreciate the sacrifice and dedication.
The team maintains a dedicated TeamSpeak3 server and Skype Pro account for group voice & video meetings. Email is used to authenticate and invite members to access the JSOG document library.
We make the TeamSpeak interview mandatory for a few reasons. But most important we believe communication is critical for fleet and squadron level operations. So to be a member you must have a headset/mic and have TeamSpeak3. You prove that with the TeamSpeak interview.
The core team and most of the membership are technology professionals and military veterans. We know that having structure and a unified set of goals provides the individual a firm foundation to propel themselves to success. Our command structure is “defined” not restrictive. To us a leader is a teacher and role model with a responsibility that other members want to follow.
So while we are relaxed as a team, there is leadership and a planned direction. Membership in this fleet is dependent on working with the leadership staff to provide all members with a cohesive, fun and safe environment of gaming. (Safe = free from bigotry, sexism and harassment)
Our members are industry professionals or full time students, in relationships, married and or have kids. We live life to its fullest. Gaming is what you do after you take care of your daily life needs. JɅvelin supports that.
We want to provide ALL our members with a relaxed gaming environment based on mutual respect. Dirty jokes, coarse social commentary and drinks are always welcome. Hate, prejudice and sexism will NOT be tolerated. We are here to support the individual and team success as Star Citizens. You have every right to not agree with a teammate’s lifestyle, but JSOG won’t have ANY tolerance if you harass them about it.
We welcome international players as this will provide JSOG with a true 24 hour Persistent Universe presence. So no matter what time zone you live in you are welcome to join us.
All active Pilots, Crewmen and Marines will have a percentage share of mission profits as well as contract pay. As a team we will discuss this as we get closer to game day and more information on the economy becomes available. Individual success is as important to JSOG and is the success of the team as a whole.
YES. Fleet contracts for convoy defense, scouting missions, reclamation and exploration will adhere to the ethos and operational guidelines of the JSOG charter. [Also review “What is a JTF and why does it matter”]
JTF stands for Joint Task Force. The definition is; a multi-service (Org/fleet) military unit. Utilizing the specialized skill sets and equipment of the member organizations to fulfill JTF mission requirements.

To occupy a Role position in any Star Citizen Org you must be a full member of that Org. With JSOG in order to have a vote in fleet management issues (voting on new members, business . . . etc.) and or have a leadership position you must be a full member. Exceptions are given to Commanding Officers of member JTF units when that unit provides the same exception for Javelin command staff.
As far as Affiliation with other Orgs yes you can; as long as you remain primarily active with JɅvelin and you do not violate the JSOG Charter and SoP.
DON’T go off and fly Pirating missions with Org X and expect to come back to a warm welcome with JSOG though. . . .
Iunctus armis ad victoriam = United arms to victory!
