We nearing the end of our 2019 donation drive – can you help?

Our yearly donation drive stretches from May to April each year, as our hosting bill – the largest ticket item we pay – comes due in early May. As we rush forward into February, the shortest month of the year, we’re just $253 away from our $1,455 goal – 83% of the way there.

Many thanks to these donors who contributed this month: Maddi Hyden, Jo Marshall, Oddas Aria, and Ferier Kian!

Can you join them by contributing $15, $25, or more to our goal to get us over the finish line by May 1? It only takes a few moments to donate and your card is processed securely by 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 above, and see how much we pay for everything.

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!
