July 2020 Post Counts

In July 2020 the fleet saw an increase in total sims posted, rising from 1665 to 2108, though the addition of two new ships to the monthly reporting meant the average per ship did stay roughly the same at 234.

For the second month in the row, Ops led the month with 375 posts, this time with the Constitution just behind them with 355. The Veritas, Juneau, and the Atlantis came in behind them with 267, 247, and 233 posts, respectively. The Gorkon followed with 210, the Thor with 194 and the newcomers of Arrow and Resolution – launching on the 20th – followed with 146 and 81 respectively.  
July 2020 Post Totals

The total number of sims overall has gone up and with the launch of two new ships in such a short period time and an increasing number of sims its an exciting time to be part of the fleet!

Ready to join our new ship, the USS Resolution?

Hidden in plain sight, the Borderlands have become a hotbed of activity. Reports coming from this sector along the Klingon border speak to increased traffic and activity. From strange signals coming from the Celendi nebula, to reports of potential pirate ships preying on ships using the lone shipping lane through the mostly unexplored and uncharted sector, a wealth of opportunity exists in the vacuum left when the Federation pulled the last ship assigned to the area. Now, it is left to the crew of the newly recommissioned USS Resolution to reach out and discover what is unknown, bring stability back to the region with their presence, and boldly go where no one has gone before!

Returning to the golden age of exploration, the versatile Nova class vessel will focus on exploring the Borderlands, which despite being fairly close to StarBase 118 and other well-charted areas of the galaxy, has yet to be fully explored. Like any uncharted region not directly controlled by a distinct power, the Borderlands is home to new races, alliances, and familiar faces. Scientific enigmas dot the area, from the Briar Patch all the way to the Azure Nebula. With so much unknown, the ship is certain to engage in missions that range from diplomacy to pure discovery and everything in between. Critical to the opening of new positions throughout the fleet, this vessel will need a crew with a drive to explore and uphold the best traditions of Starfleet as they blaze their own path to the stars.

Ship rosters on new launches tend to close within just a few days of announcement. If you’re interested in joining this new ship, click here now to learn more and submit your transfer. Don’t miss out!

June 2020 Post Counts

In June 2020 the fleet saw a small decrease in the total sims posted – to 1665 sims total and an average per ship of 238. Not reflected in the data was the Fleet’s ‘soft launch’ of the USS Arrow at the command of Commander Randal Shayne in the final days of the month, but nonetheless managed 48 sims of its own.

Of the ships with complete data for the month, Ops raced ahead with 372 sims, followed by the Consitution with 292, the Gorkon with 232, and the Juneau with 217. The Veritas was close behind with 197 posts, as was the Thor with 194 and the Atlantis with 161.

Coming off the excitement of the Awards Ceremony and the launch of the Arrow we are sure to many exciting things over the next month!June 2020 Post Counts

Awards Ceremony 2020 – Duty Post Awards

Welcome to day four, the final day of the awards ceremony. So far this week we’ve announced the recipients of the General, Length of Service, Special and Staff Awards. Today we present the duty post awards. Each award focuses on a different department from the major ones such as medical, operations or engineering to the more unique – like diplomacy, intel or marines. Even civilians have a chance to be recognized for the valuable contributions that can be made to our stories by those who prefer the path less worn.

Each of these awards recognizes a player for excellence in simming their duty post. Since only one award per duty post is given each year, only the very best are chosen and they are highly coveted awards. You’ll see from our spread of winners – who range in rank from Ensign to Captain – that every player has a chance to be considered for one of these by consistently simming to the best of their ability and striving to improve their craft.

In closing this year’s awards ceremony we’d like to thank the people who made this possible and make one final, special presentation. Our thanks and appreciation goes out to:

  • The Awards Committee — composed of Fleet Captain Kali Nicholotti, Captain Nugra and Captain Jarred Thoran — who voted on the Duty Post and Special Awards. This is a complex process that involves reviewing all the nominations received, along with supporting links for a given award and then selecting which candidate they feel best matches the qualities the award is seeking.
  • The Deputy Award Facilitators — Commander Randal Shayne and Lieutenant Commanders Sky Blake and Dassa Alexander-Dalton — who helped prep the awards nominations for review, compile materials for the awards ceremonies, along with assisting with other tasks relating to the awards. They put in a considerable amount of time and effort to help ensure everything was accurate, prepared and ready for awards day. Their help has allowed the awards ceremony to continue to run smoothly. Thanks, guys!
  • The commanding officers of the fleet, who put in a lot of time and effort to review the nominations for their ships and ensure that the right people are selected for awards.
  • Fleet Admiral Tristan Wolf for founding this community 26 years ago and encouraging us to thrive in it, grow our own way, and all started when he was barely on the edge of seventeen. I know I’m not wrong when I say his job is never the easiest, most of it goes over my head — fending off an albatross and a storm or two, taking a tusk in a landslide, playing the peacekeeper — but he makes it look good. Skies the limit. Big love for you, trouble!
  • All the first officers of our fleet, who voted on the staff awards providing recommendations to the EC, for determining the recipient of general awards where their CO was nominated, and writing awards presentations where needed.
  • All of you who submit wonderful, heartfelt nominations each year!

Finally, here’s to an awesome 26th year within our wonderful ‘Fleet! Raise your mugs, get that toast going, and celebrate a fantastic era we’ve got going on!

Find out who this year’s duty post superstars are first by heading down to the forums today where you can read about and congratulate our talented award recipients!

The full awards ceremony will soon be posted on the wiki.

Awards Ceremony 2020 – Staff Awards

Welcome to day three of the annual awards ceremony! So far we have announced the recipients of the General, Length of Service and Special Awards. Today we’re proud to present the Staff Awards!

The Staff awards are only for those members who have achieved the rank of commander or higher. These awards recognize the hard work of our staff, who do the behind-the-scenes work required to keep the engine of our community running, and smoothly at that! They help foster the fun simming environment we all enjoy.

Head to the forums now to see who received each of the Staff Awards from each ship across the fleet, and be sure to congratulate the winners!

Awards Ceremony 2020 – Length of Service and Special Awards

Welcome to day two of the annual awards ceremony! Yesterday we announced the recipients of the General Awards. Today we’re proud to present the Length of Service and Special Awards.

Our Length of Service Awards recognize folks who’ve hit one of our membership tiers in the last year: 1-year, 3-years, 5-years, 10-years, 15-years and 20-years! Incredibly, we’re recognizing two 5-year commanding officers this year, and one 25-year member!

Special Awards is a catch-all category for awards that don’t fit elsewhere but mostly entail OOC community innovation and dedication. This is where awards like the Rising Star and Community Champion fit, recognizing members who are putting in an incredible effort. Just like with the Staff and Duty Post awards, only one of each award is given each year – only the very best are chosen so they are highly coveted awards that every player has a chance to be considered for by getting involved and giving it their best. (With one notable exception: The Xalor Clan Xifilis award is given to any player who has overcome any sort of disadvantage while simming. We don’t compare and weigh one person’s struggles against another but rather award this to all eligible and deserving candidates who are nominated for it.)

Head to the forums now to see who received each of the Length of Service and Special Awards from each ship across the fleet, and be sure to congratulate the winners!
