Welcome aboard HMS Claymore (CA-51), the proud and growing southern Arizona chapters of the Royal Manticoran Navy, the Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. We cover the Phoenix East Valley and the rest of Southern 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!
Claymore is made up of three chapters —
- HMS Claymore (CA-51): Phoenix East Valley under the command of Captain (JG) Naron.
- Assault Shuttle Claymore-01: Tucson Metro Area, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Farmer.
- HM Pinnance Claymore-One: Sierra Vista, AZ, under the command of Ensign English.
Claymore is 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.
