The UFOP: StarBase 118 Fleet raced into the holiday season with the launch of not one but two new ships! The USS Eagle and USS Montreal completed their first full month of simming in November, bringing the total fleet size to ten ships and installations. Members of UFOP: StarBase 118 wrote a total of 1,825 sims, with a fleet average of 183 sims per ship.

The USS Gorkon led the fleet with 253 sims written, followed by the USS Eagle at 246 sims and the StarBase 118 Ops at 231 sims.

Check out some of the highlights of this past month’s simming through our Appreciations forum, where you and your fellow members can nominate sims, great quotes, and other memorable moments for the rest of the fleet to enjoy!


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.

We’re launching two new ships – are you interested in joining?

Two ships head out to the frontiers of the Federation, preparing to not only explore, but defend and serve the citizens of the Federation. On one side, of space, the Eagle fills the power vacuum as the Cardassian Union withdraws from a nearly lawless, annexed territory to focus on its homeworld. On the other side of space, the Montreal arrives in the Shoals to aide colonists and hold the line against space pirates, famine, disease, and unrest.

This week, UFOP: StarBase 118 Star Trek PBEM RPG is excited to launch the USS Eagle and USS Montreal, welcome additions to our growing ranks that will help us make room for new players. Under the commands of Oddas Aria and Mei’konda respectively, these ships are accepting six transfers from around the fleet to help fill out their rosters and alleviate overcrowding on our established vessels.

Click here to check your eligibility, find out more information, and submit your transfer request. Your promotion progress goes with you to the new ship!

Act quickly if you’re interested – new ship rosters usually fill up within 48 hours of our first announcement going out!
