Awards Ceremony 2019: Get ready for nominations!

If this is your awards ceremony with us, welcome! This is a tradition that dates back to 1996, wherein we honor the people of the fleet who are simming really well, or contributing OOC.

To determine who wins awards, we ask for members across the fleet to nominate their fellow crewmates and ship’s staff to recognize their great work in simming and OOC activities. Every member of the fleet is allowed to make nominations for the following award classes:

  • General awards: Any member can receive a general award. One general award, per vessel, is allowed per ceremony.
  • Duty Post awards: Duty post awards are awards given to individuals in a designated duty post, department, or division. Only one recipient from the entire fleet is selected for recognition with a duty post award each year.
  • Special awards: A special award is an OOC award that is awarded during the annual fleet awards ceremony. Any member can receive a special award. However, only one of each award is allowed per ceremony.
  • Staff awards: A staff award is an OOC award reserved for officers ranked commander and above. Only one of each award is given per ceremony.

We highly encourage you to include a sim attachment for nominations on General and Duty Post award nominations. All nominations require a well thought-out explanation for the nomination. Keep in mind that in most cases, your award nomination may be vying against another nomination for someone else. For example: If two members of your fleet are nominated for the Prantares Ribbon, your nomination will have to be good enough to ensure your candidate wins!

So start thinking about those nominations now, and get read for the nomination period to open next week, on Monday, May 20. Bookmarking great sims and drafting some rough nomination text will help you get a jump-start.

More information about our yearly awards is available in the Hall of Honors on the wiki. Click through to learn more now.


This month’s fleetwide OOC chat is on May 19

Due to the Mother’s Day holiday in the United States – during which we usually have a depressed turnout to our monthly chats – and the fact that the 2019 Awards Ceremony nominations are opening later this month, we’re moving the fleetwide OOC chat to the third Sunday (instead of the second Sunday) to give folks the opportunity to ask questions about the upcoming ceremony and submitting nominations.

This chat will begin on Sunday, May 19 at 10am Pacific, 1pm Eastern, 6pm UTC. Click here to see the start time in your zone, and add this event to your calendar.

All members of the fleet, and those in training, are welcome to join us in the Discord chat room. See you there!

A link and instructions will be posted in our fleetwide chat, so be sure to arrive a little early. Once things get started we watch a great episode of Trek while chatting about everything we love and remember about it. Or joking about it!

Our theme this year, chosen by popular vote is alternative timelines and alternative captains featuring:

  • Star Trek Voyager: S3, E2: “Flashback”
  • Star Trek the Next Generation S3, E15: “Yesterday’s Enterprise”

Episodes will start fifteen minutes past the hour, giving everyone enough time to join Rabbit and log in.
