Roshanara Rahman promoted to Commodore

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.

Serala promoted to Commander!

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 Serala, First Officer of the USS Chin’toka, has been promoted to the rank of Commander!

Commander Serala joined StarBase 118 in 2017, and was posted to the USS Atlantis as a security officer. Advancing through the ranks, she became chief of her department in 2019 before switching to the strategic operations officer duty post at the end of the year. In 2020, she was named First Officer of the Atlantis and remains in that post after the crew transferred over to their new vessel, the USS Chin’toka, in September 2020. In addition to simming aboard Chin’toka, Commander Serala writes for Karise Indobri, Chief Medical Officer of the USS Juneau.

In addition to his simming, Jim, the writer for Serala and Indobri, is an active member of the Training Team, Image Collective, and Chat Team. He is a recipient of the B-Plot Award, Pathfinder Award, Khan Award, and Sheathed Sword, and he has received multiple ship commendations during the fleet’s annual State of the Federation Addresses.

Applications and Academy Graduates for November and December 2020

Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet across November and December 2020.

This first graph depicts the number of applications that the fleet has received each month this year. In November, we saw 12 new applications which is a nice bump from last month!

In December we saw four new applications which is significantly lower than what we saw in November.

December Academy Applications

The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application. A varied list of sources for November, but as always Google is our leader:

For December we saw Google in the lead once again:

This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of November. The fleet saw three new graduates during the month, which is slightly less than we saw in October. Five applicants started training in November but won’t be counted until December’s tally if they graduate.

The fleet saw eight new graduates during December, which is three more than we saw in November, despite having received only 4 applications over the month. This is partially accounted for by the fact that two applicants who applied at the end of November did not finish training until after the beginning of December.

These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
