Commodore is an exclusive rank and title that captains and fleet captains can earn in our game once they have served as commanding officer of a vessel for five years (whether continuously during one tenure or cumulatively over multiple commands). Having completed their own “five-year mission” aboard their ships, these COs are recognized by our community as among our finest leaders in the fleet.
The Executive Council is pleased to announce the promotion of Fleet Captain Roshanara Rahman to the rank and title of Commodore!
Rahman – who most know just as “Rich” – joined us in May, 2010 and then first took command on April 5, 2016 (First Contact Day!) on the Invicta. He was promoted to Captain on August 6, 2016 and soon after moved with his crew to the USS Veritas, his current command. He was later promoted to Fleet Captain in 2019.
Rich is highly decorated as a captain, having earned the following awards in our Staff category:
- Honor of the Admiralty, 2397
- Staff Member of the Year Award, 2394
- James T. Kirk Cross, 2394
- Christopher Pike Pendant, 2395
Beyond the Veritas, Rich is a member of the Executive Council, Deputy Commandant of the Academy, Senior Editor of the Federation News Service (FNS), Facilitator of the Veterans Affairs Committee, and a Wiki Admin. He’s known as a creative thought leader in the organization – from his work beautifying the wiki, managing the Featured Bio Contest, and leading the FNS to his longstanding work in improving our processes in a way that benefits our membership.
