Alexander Williams promoted to commander!

The Captains Council is pleased to announce that Alexander Williams, First Officer of the USS Atlantis, has been promoted to the rank of Commander!

Cheers to Commander Williams, and here’s to many more years of simming with UFOP: SB118! Click here to head to the forums and add your congratulations on this promotion.

Williams joined the fleet in June of 2013, and was assigned to the Apollo as the tactical officer. He continued playing in the tactical role, transitioning to the Chief Tactical Officer, on a number of ships including the Aegis, Apollo-A, Constitution-B, Excalibur-A, and Za. He has played the First Officer on the Athena and his current ship, the Atlantis.

The writer behind Williams has been highly decorated with the Genesis Award, Russ Bar, Q Award, Laudean Commendation, Neelix Award, as well as the 1-Year, 3-Year, and 5-Year member awards.

You can read more about him in this interview: “First Officer in Focus: Alexander Williams, Atlantis“.

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.

Our 2020 fundraising campaign begins with $165 in donations!

Last month we let you know that we finished our 2019 donations drive with more money than we needed! (We’re banking that lil bit extra in case we come in short in a future year, or for if we need emergency funds if we need it for the website.)

This month, we started the 2020 donation drive strong with $165 in donations from Jo Marshall, Samira Neathler, Ferier Kian, and Joan Basilone – as well as a few anonymous donors. Many many thanks to all these folks their generosity in helping us to get started for the next year, and ensuring that our community continues to fully fund all of its resources.

You can join these donors in donating securely via our website. It only takes a few moments, and we never see any of your credit card information.

It costs over $1,450 a year to keep our website, wiki, and forums. All of that is funded entirely by our members. We appreciate everyone who pitches it to help in this way!

    Smashed our 2019 fundraising goal!

    In a huge show of support, a bunch of community members jumped in to donate in the last month to get us over our 2019 fundraising goal! Our official goal was $1,455, and we’re now at $1,567 – 108% of our goal. The extra money over the goal will be deposited in our savings account to be used either for next year’s campaign (starting on May 1, 2019 and ending on May 1, 2020), or for unforeseen expenses in the coming year.

    Huge thanks to Oddas Aria, Rune Jolara, Jo Marshall, Geoffrey Teller, Tiria Hamasaki, and Corliss Fortune who took us over the finish line for this year by donating in the last month. And many thanks to all those who gave over the last year. Everyone who donated received a special donor badge for their wiki profile, as well as forum title denoting that they’re a community supporter.

    Our next donation campaign begins on May 1st of this year, when our hosting bill comes due and we pay out a large part of the funds we raised in the last year. Then we start the campaign fresh as we countdown toward the next deadline.

    If you’d like to help us get a jumpstart on the 2020 campaign, head to the donations page now – it only takes a few moments and your donations is processed securely through Stripe.

    Every dime of our donations go toward keeping our website online and paying for the various software required to run our community. You can read more about the total bill of costs on the donations page, and see how much we pay for everything.
