Task Group 91.1 (abbrev: TG 91.1) is a multi-vessel task group within the Tenth Fleet. Commanded by CAPTSG Sir Erik Roberts, KDE, GS, QBM, CBM, RMN, from his flagship HMS Medusa, the task group's area of operations includes the US states of California and Nevada.

History

Task Group 91.1 was formed and established in June 2014 by order of the First Space Lord, FADM Sir Scott Akers.[1] The first commanding officer was CAPTSG Sir Thomas Marrone. Its charter member vessels were HMS Artemis (flagship), HMS Wolf, and HMS Roland.

At BayCon 2015 in Santa Clara, CA, the task group was the host echelon for the annual Tenth Fleet summit, where HMS Cerberus commissioned. The next month Cerberus and HMS Merlin (Santa Ana, CA) were added to the task group by Naval Directive 15JU-01U. Shortly after the inclusion of those two vessels, Sir Thomas stepped down as the task group's Commanding Officer and then-CAPTSG James Jones relieved him; Cerberus became flagship of the task group.[2] CAPTSG Jones received his promotion to flag status as Commodore of the task group in October.[3] The crew of Artemis upgraded to the superdreadnought HMS Medusa under the command of CDRE Michael Garcia, and Merlin's crew upgraded to Artemis. HMS Bedivere returned to the Tenth Fleet and was added along with Medusa to the task group's command.

2016 saw the beginning of additional echelon forces added to the task group, with the addition of HMS Chainshot under the command of CAPTJG Joseph Harney in late May during the very first Task Group 91.1 Summit at BayCon 2016. Chainshot and Roland formed Destroyer Division 231 under then-CDR Jack Yeager's command the following month.[4] At the end of July, Wolf and Cerberus consolidated their crews to form the second superdreadnought in the task group, HMS Thunderer under then-CAPTJG Sonja Thiede's command, and with CDRE Jones aboard, Thunderer became the task group's latest flagship. Shortly after, GNS Randolph Candless formed out of the crew of Artemis under the command of CAPT Aaron Davis, GSN, and formed Battlecruiser Division 921 with their former mothership; Artemis serving as flag for the division.[5]. Roland upgraded to HMS Intractable and Chainshot upgraded to HMS Revenge. With now four superdreadnoughts operating within the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valleys, Battle Squadron 2 formed under the command of CDRE Sir Joseph Harney.[6].
