Congratulations to Commander Frost!

The folks at UFOP: SB118 are pleased to announce the promotion of Lieutenant Commander Liam Frost to the rank of Commander. Serving aboard the USS Apollo under command of Fleet Captain Andrus Jaxx, there should be no shortage of work for him to do.

Commander Frost got his start as a tactical ensign aboard the USS Victory, and explored other areas such as helm and navigation. Eventually he became the ship’s Chief of Security and Tactical. After serving in this capacity on the Victory, Liam served in the same position at Starbase 118 Ops, during which he was promoted to full Lieutenant. After taking part in the creation and defense of the Thracian Alliance, Frost was transferred once more to the newly commissioned USS Apollo, to where he served as the ship’s first officer and Lieutenant Commander.

With his continued efforts in the OOC realm as well as his duties on the Apollo, Commander Frost will continue to serve our community, and we all look forward to seeing what’s in store for him. Congratulations, Commander!


David Whale Promoted to Lt. Colonel

Today, the staff of Starbase 118 would like to congratulate David Whale, who has been promoted to commander. In keeping with his marine background, Commander Whale will carry the in-character rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Lt. Colonel Whale joined the Starbase 118 fleet on stardate 238512.20, but his character history goes back quite a bit further than that. Whale originally graduated from the academy in 2263, and was assigned to the security department of the USS Ackerman. He served with distinction aboard the Ackerman, eventually reaching the rank of lieutenant in December 2266.

In 2269, Lieutenant Whale’s career took a turn in what is known as the Ackerman Incident. The Ackerman responded to a distress call from a civilian freight, which was caught in an unknown anomaly. The freighter was freed, but the Ackerman herself became trapped in the anomaly and vanished.  A rescue mission and an investigation were launched, but turned up no trace of the Ackerman, or any explanation for what had happened. She was presumed lost with all hands.
