It’s up to you to decide which.
The UEE Advocacy Joint Task Force is a player-driven and organized elite mobile unit of the UEE Advocacy that can be deployed to various areas within the UEE that either lack permanent Advocacy infrastructure, or have thin coverage locally. The UEE Advocacy’s Joint Task Force is the only unit of it’s kind as it operates from the only capital ship to ever be granted to the UEE Advocacy; the UEES Intrepid, a retrofitted Aegis Idris Frigate that the JTF uses as a mobile command center. However, the JTF being the only unit of it’s kind comes at a price – unlike the rest of the UEE Advocacy, the JTF has a finite amount of personnel and resources which can be tasked at any given time. While the JTF still receives it’s orders from the High Advocate just like the rest of the Advocacy; it is not guaranteed backup from other Advocacy units and as such must operate in a self-sufficient capacity in situations when / if backup is not available from other units. Because of this limitation, the JTF can only operate within a single system at any given time, which is determined by the High Advocate and can be re-assigned to another system whenever deemed necessary. Typically, the High Advocate assigns the JTF to whatever system within UEE jurisdiction that is deemed to be in the most need of an additional Advocacy presence locally; however, such assignments can change quickly when / if a state of Emergency is declared within another system; such as when the Vega system was attacked by Vanduul.
Just like the rest of the UEE Advocacy, all JTF agents are considered to have reserve status and are expected to answer the call of need in the case that an imperial state of emergency is declared within the UEE.
While the rest of the UEE Advocacy handles matters more closely tied to post-crime correction such as investigations, hunting known felons, and extraditing fugitives; the JTF focuses mostly on the more proactive duties and responsibilities of the UEE Advocacy such as emergency response services and aiding civilians in need; raiding known outlaw hot-spots, busting smugglers and pirates alike; and undertaking surveillance and reconnaissance operations.
Because of the unique nature of the JTF; the unit has access to military grade hardware and equipment that most Advocacy units do not; with a vast array of fleet assets consisting of everything from Anvil F8 Lightnings to Aegis Hammerhead Corvettes. However, much like a traditional Advocacy unit; the JTF still relies primarily on smaller, versatile, and cost-efficient ships such as the Aegis Avenger; the Anvil Hawk, and the Origin 350R for the majority of the fleet build-up and standard issue accommodations for personnel. It is worth noting that while they are not standard issue – Hornet F7C-R Trackers, Sabre Comets, Sabre Ravens, Vanguard Sentinels, and Mercury Star Runners are also fairly common within the JTF fleet.
Due to limited budget and manpower granted from the UEE senate; the UEE Joint Task Force can only be deployed to a single UEE star system at a time and will remain on post with multiple units assigned to the area until a new deployment assignment is issued from the UEE Advocacy.
Current JTF system assignment: Stanton
Forward base of operations: IO-Tower North, Section A – Area 18, ArcCorp
Actively deployed emergency response units: HUR (Hurston Area) and ARC (ArcCorp Area)
We currently have two units deployed in the Stanton system; one which remains stationed within the general vicinity of ArcCorp, and the other which remains posted around Hurston. We still can and do respond to emergencies around the Crusader area, but response times for emergency situations in that area may be longer in duration due to the current absence of a dedicated ERS unit within the local area.
We cannot and do not respond to emergency situations around Levski / Delemar, as they do not fall within the legal jurisdiction of the UEE Advocacy, and by extension does not fall withing the jurisdiction of the JTF either.
If you require emergency assistance, you can reach us via the ECN (Emergency Communications Network) channel on our public (Discord) server anytime.Disclaimer: Emergency response times may vary be time of day and the availability of resources currently present.
The JTF will function more or less as a UEE law enforcement agency in-game; this means that we will focus on specific facets of Star Citizen game – by CIG’s coined terminology for the actual game mechanics themselves, this includes “bounty hunting”, “interdiction”, and “security” game-play.
However, the JTF in practice does not carry itself nor function like a “bounty hunting” or “security” organization – we will function more like government law enforcement in actual practice – which has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Generally speaking, JTF is not and will not ever be as flexible or multi-faceted as “bounty hunting” or “security” organizations can be; but we balance that out by providing a genuinely unique Star Citizen game-play experience and benefits which no other organization in the Star Citizen community currently provides.
