We’re launching a ship: USS Apollo-A returns

Exciting news: We’re launching a ship this week to make room for an influx of new members!

In addition to two returning members, we had 13 applications from a viral post on Reddit about our community. These folks had, as a group, some of the best written applications I’ve ever seen so I hope that you’ll find their writing just as enjoyable as I did!

Huge props to our Academy Training officers who all showed up on deck when we put out an urgent call to help train all the new applicants. With 15 people in training we had three classes running at once – the most we’ve ever done.

We expect about 10 people to enter the fleet this week as a result. (Some of the new applicants dropped out, others are retraining this coming week to get a little more practice.) We hope that you’ll welcome all these new players with open arms, especially since many of them have never before played with a Star Trek PBEM and will need to meet new friends who can help them get comfortable with our grame.

Because of all these awesome new recruits, we’re launching a new ship under the command of Rear Admiral Renos, the USS Apollo-A. The Apollo is accepting 10 current members as transfers from across the fleet to make room on our established ships for new members.


Evan Delano promoted to Commander

The Captains Council is pleased to announce that Evan Delano, Operations Officer and Second Officer of the USS Veritas, has been promoted to the rank of Commander!

Commander Delano joined the fleet in 2013 and started aboard the USS Tiger-A as a security officer and later became chief of security. He then served aboard the USS Garuda and the USS Invicta before coming to the USS Veritas. Besides serving on the command staff and as a mentor aboard Veritas, he is an academy instructor on the Training Team, an editor for the Federation News Service team, and a member of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Advanced Starship Design Bureau teams.

Commander Delano has been recognized for both his simming and writing and his contributions out of character. He’s been awarded numerous times, including the Order of Starfleet Merit and Achievement, Sheathed Sword, Nebula Bar, and the Khan Award. He was a runner-up in the Writing Challenge, a Top Sims judge, and a Featured Bio winner.

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.

Head to the forums now to congratulate Commander Delano on his well-earned promotion!
