The promotion to the rank of commander is a joyous occasion in our community – the result of years of writing, mentoring, and learning the ropes. The multi-step process in a promotion to Commander starts with a nomination from two members of the fleet at or above the rank of Commander, followed by an initial vote from the Captains Council to allow the examination process to begin. Then, the member must pass both a written exam, and a practical exam. Finally, another vote by the Captains Council confirms the promotion. Candidates must show that they have great simming skills, strong knowledge of Star Trek, and the foundations of leadership and teaching skills.
The Captains Council is pleased to announce that Genkos Adea, Chief Medical Officer and Second Officer of the USS Resolution, has been promoted to the rank of Commander!
Genkos Adea joined Starbase 118 in 2018. He was first posted to the USS Gorkon as a Medical officer. He then served on the Gorkon and the USS Juneau as Chief Medical Officer, before finally taking the Chief Medical Officer and 2O position on the Resolution in 2020.
In addition to his duties aboard Resolution, the writer behind Adea participates in the History Team, the Publicity Team, serves as a cadet trainer on the Training Team, and is a co-facilitator of the Poll of the Month team. He has been decorated with the O’Brien Award, the Sheathed Sword, TOSMA, and Prantares Ribbon, and received commendations for his work in the 2021 State of the Federation Address.
