Captain’s Corner: Mei’konda, CO of the USS Montreal

Each month, we interview a captain or first officer of the fleet to gain more insight on what it takes to command a ship and learn more about how each of these staff members found their way into these roles.

This month, we’re interviewing Commander Mei’konda, the CO of the USS Montreal, one of two new ships launched last month.

WOLF: The last time you were here on the news was June 2017 as part of our First Officer in Focus column – welcome back! How have you been since then?

MEI’KONDA: I’ve been very well. I found the role of first officer a fun one to play, especially under Rich (Captain Roshanara Rahman), who was and still is a great mentor to me.

You’ve just recently launched the USS Montreal as part of a fleet expansion due to an influx of members. How are you settling in to your new role as commanding officer? And what was it like to launch a new ship under these circumstances?

This is the first time I’ve been so involved in the launch of a new vessel, and it was pretty chaotic for the first one or two weeks because it was on short notice. But I welcomed that particular challenge, because I felt that if I could handle such a busy launch, I would be able to handle Captaincy itself. Thus far, I’m enjoying the role of commanding officer. I’ve been lucky enough to have some extremely creative writers on my crew, and I can’t wait to see where they take our stories.

Jarred Thoran promoted to Commander!

The Captains Council is pleased to announce that Jarred Thoran, First Officer of the USS Columbia, has been promoted to the rank of Commander!

Cheers to Commander Thoran, 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.

Commander Thoran joined the fleet in April of 2017 and was assigned to the Andaris Task Force as the tactical officer. He later transitioned to the role of Chief of Security, and then to the First Officer position on Andaris TF. The crew of the Andaris TF then moved to the Columbia, where he serves currently.

Besides his role on the Columbia, he has also been an active and diligent member of the Academy Training Team, a participant and now the facilitator of the Publicity Team, a member of the Community News Team, and an admin on the Wiki.

The writer behind Thoran, Richard, was highly decorated in the last Awards Ceremony receiving the Boothby Award, Locutus Award, Khan Award, Sheathed Sword, and TOSMA. He also received the Neelix Award in 2017.

You can read more about him in these interviews:

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.


Will you join these donors this month?

Once again, we’d like to thank the following donors for their generosity: Ari Tullus, Ruq’orb, Oddas Aria, Jo Marshall, and Valoru!

And we’d like to ask if you can join in this month to become a donor of $5, $15, or even $25 to help us reach our goal. We’ve just popped over the 50% mark, but we still need to raise about another $700 before the May 2019 deadline – we’re a little behind pace, so now’s a great time to help us catch up if you can.

Donating only takes a couple minutes. It’s easy and we never see your credit card information (it’s all handled securely by Stripe). Not only that, but your donation goes 100% toward our web hosting, domain names, and software licenses for the forums and other tools we use to make the community run smoothly.

Click here to donate now. Anything you can give will help us move toward the goal, and you’ll receive a donor badge!
