Star Trek Bridge Commander was released by Activision in 2002 as an operational spacecraft simulator based on the Star Trek universe. This simulator contains several planned missions, including the famous mission of Starfleet Academy training called  Kobayashi Maru. But this game contains a Single Player Mode against various ships of the Star Trek universe. Quickbattle can be played against the computer, but also in multiplayer mode where players from around the world meet for unforgettable battles.

At this time the Venture Squadron of Bridge Commander was created on Stardate 2008-10-28, under the initial command of the Cessna Skytower. Since then, the USS Venture maintains this Squadron in the Online Universe of Brazilian gamers. Members of the Squadron gather to train and compete at Championships in individual competiton or Team duels. Below is a little more about Venture Fleet and its history of competition in the Online game.


The Venture Squadron consists of five members of which the Commanding Officer is chosen by the Command Division of USS Venture Group. Its main mission is to represent the USS Venture Group at online events of the Brazilian Bridge Commander Universe, in addition to providing individual growth of each member of the Squadron in Starship Command and operations from the Star Trek universe.


The formation of the Venture Squadron is not fixed and has been modified over the years, depending on availability and willingness of group members to participate in this activity, which is not directly related to Second Life, but use the facilities of this meta-universe for meetings and education classes, taught in the Venture Station DS6 becoming the headquarters for Venture's Fleet.

Currently the members of the Venture Squadron and their ships are:
- Uriel Aeon - USS Aeon or USS Gaga - Commander

- MDaniel Landman - USS Venture
- Hallan Baar - USS Hallan
- Milton Zapatero - USS Darwin
- Sanival Writer - USS Sovei
