STARBASE 104 – Having found some of the senior staff unresponsive in their quarters, the remaining officers of the USS Constitution-B struggle to figure out what’s going on and how to resolve it.
Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in September.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that we have received each month this year. The month of September only saw four new applications. This marks September as the month with the lowest number of applicants all year.
The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of September. The fleet saw five graduates during the month of September. This is an uncommon phenomenon that occurred because of August graduates who finished training in the beginning of September. We also had one applicant who’s training did not conclude until the beginning of October.
These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
Join us in the chat room for our monthly OOC chat today (Sunday, October 13) at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 6pm London / 3am+1 Sydney (AUS). (See your timezone here.)
Our monthly chats are a place to meet other members of the fleet, catch up on current fleet events, share stories, and talk about Star Trek. Especially if you’ve never attended a chat before, we hope you’ll participate this month!
They might be heroes to us, but it’s easy to believe that our characters have dreams just like their writers. It’s not too far a stretch of the imagination to believe that those dreams might take a similar form to common fantasies in our daily lives. Who hasn’t wondered what it would be like to fly, or blast away at the bad guys with laser sight? Even with phasers and replicators at their disposal, the occasional dalliance with the impossible is only human.
Which superpower would your character like for a day?
The staff of UFOP: SB118 would like to congratulate all who saw their hard work and dedication pay off this month. Please be sure to congratulate these members when you see them around the forums and chat room!
- Alexander Brodie to Lieutenant Commander
- Daylan Daroo to Lieutenant JG

Please welcome our newest Academy graduate to the UFOP: StarBase 118 fleet: Saju Uma!
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.
Check out some of the highlights of this past month’s simming through our Appreciations forum, where you and your fellow members can nominate sims, great quotes, and other memorable moments for the rest of the fleet to enjoy!
KETAR V, THE SHOALS — The crew of the USS Veritas (NCC-95035) has assisted Colonial Coalition Marshals Service (CCMS) officers in arresting Rama Suttirat, who now faces charges for premeditated murder.
Each year, we run a contest to see which crew can come up with the best avatar themes for the forums, like “Nightmare Before Christmas,” or “Mugshots,” or “Sesame Street.” A set of judges from every crew in the fleet determines the best based on originality and design.
This year’s 9th annual contest has already begun, so if you haven’t yet checked-in to your forum thread, be sure to get that doon soon!
