January 2020 Post Counts

The Starbase 118 Fleet was off to a great start in January with over half the ships in the fleet beating all previous January numbers in their histories. The fleetwide average this month was 208 sims, up some from last month for a total of 1,459 sims across all active ships. After the holidays and various vacations and real world activities, it is great to see everyone jumping back into some incredible stories!

This month, the Starbase 118 Operations leads the pack with 285 sims written. Just behind them is the Gorkon, for the second month in second place, with 247 sims, the Veritas with 242 sims, and the USS Eagle with 239 sims. Fifth place goes to the Atlantis at 176 sims, with the Constitution not too far behind them with 139 sims. The Embassy put in a good showing as well with 131 sims this month, increasing their lead on prior years numbers. Where will we stand next month? With a new year fully in motion, stand by for February!

December 2019 Post Counts

December was much as it was expected to be, with the fleet putting out some really great sims, but not quite as many as last month. The fleetwide average this month was 187 sims, for a total of 1,307 sims across all active ships.  With many people on vacation and some being pulled away from their online personas with family from out of town, we are used to a bit of a downturn like this in December. Our stories are still going strong though!

This month, the USS Veritas leads the pack with 283 sims written. Just behind them is the Gorkon with 250 sims, the Atlantis with 231 sims, and the Starbase 118 Ops with 166 sims. Fifth place goes to the Eagle at 150 sims, with the Constitution not too far behind them with 122 sims. The Embassy put in a good showing as well with 105 sims this month, which beat out their numbers from this time last year. Where will we stand next month? With a new year here and plenty of stories to be told, stay tuned for January!

November 2019 Post Counts

November saw the fleet shrink a little more as we say farewell to the Astraeus. With this ebb and flow natural to a game like ours, this November actually saw an uptick in sims while we brought simmers closer together. The fleetwide average this month was 192 sims, for a total of 1,535 sims across all active ships.  This just proves that we’re still weaving some great stories as we head into the colder season!

This month, the USS Eagle once again leads the pack with 260 sims written. Just behind them are three other ships, the Gorkon with 232 sims, the Atlantis with 230 sims, and the Constitution with 230 sims. Fifth place goes to the Veritas at 191 sims, with Ops just on their tail with 190 sims. The Embassy put in a good showing as well with 134 sims this month. Where will we stand next month? Keep simming strong and December will show!

October 2019 Post Counts

As we bid the USS Columbia a fond farewell, we see that our post totals are reflected in this part of the big picture. In October we saw a fleet average of 165 sims per ship, for a total of 1487. These are still strong numbers for this time of year, proving the resilience of our sim family and amazing storylines.

This month, the USS Eagle leads the pack with 205 sims written. Following very close, with 203 sims, is Starbase 118 Ops, showing a spike in activity as the crew jumps into their latest story. Right behind them comes the Veritas, maintaining third place for the second month in a row.

September 2019 Post Counts

Post totals are seeing a slight downturn in sim counts for the month as the touch of Autumn weather signifies the coming of a number of events and holidays. In September we saw a fleet average of 174 sims per ship, for a total of 1563. Historically, this time of year is when many of us are gearing up for the next few months, which can be quite chaotic for some.

This month, the USS Atlantis leads the pack with 259 sims written. Following a bit behind, with 200 sims, is the USS Astraeus, making strides to come from only 131 last month. Right behind them comes the Veritas, falling to third from their pretty big lead last month.

August 2019 Post Counts

Post totals are seeing an uptick across the fleet as school is back in session and the summer days are falling quickly into the past. In August we see a fleet average of 181 sims per ship, for a total of 1631. This actually matches the post count from June, and may signify a return to routine for many ships.

This month, the USS Veritas leads the pack with 296 sims written. Following a ways behind, with 235 sims, is the USS Gorkon, falling just slightly from their lead last month. Right behind them comes the Columbia, in third for two months in a row, who has clocked 203 sims in August.

Executive Council appoints FltCapt. Roshanara Rahman to permanent seat on the council

Our community’s Constitution defines five seats and a Captain at Large role for the Executive Council. With the recent, sad departure of Renos – a long-standing Commanding Officer and member of the EC and – a seat has opened on the council.

We are pleased to announce that this seat will be filled by FltCapt. Roshanara Rahman (Rich). From his early days improving the wiki with a host of new images and templates, to where he stands now as CO of the Veritas, Deputy Commandant of the Academy, facilitator and founder of the Federation News Service team and spinoff website, he’s shown us time and again how dedicated he is to the success of our community and to our members, who have a loyal advocate in this staff member.

Rich previously served as the Captain at Large for 2017 and 2018, where he got a taste of how the council is run, putting in a good position to be an effective member of the council on his first day.

You can learn more about him in these other news posts:

Congratulations Rich!


July 2019 Post Counts

Summer is in full swing as can be seen across the UFOP: Starbase 118 fleet, as the total post count dips to 1,487. Historically typical, the preparation for school and last minute summer vacations impact sim time, but only temporarily.

This month, the USS Gorkon leads the pack with 280 sims written. Following a ways behind, with 192 sims, is the USS Constitution, matching their sim count from last month. Right behind them comes the Columbia, who has clocked 177 sims for the third straight month in a row!

June 2019 Post Counts

We’ve seen a slight drop in sims throughout the UFOP: Starbase 118 fleet, as we count a total post count of 1,541, which can be attributed to a normal summer slowdown. The average per ship sim count is 171, reflecting a summer full of good weather and plenty of typical vacations!

This month, the USS Astraeus – the new ship which the crew of the Montreal transferred to – leads the pack with 221 sims written. Following close behind is the Gorkon, with 203 sims. Without too much of a gap after that, the Constitution clocked 192 sims for the month of June, and the USS Eagle came in with 188.
