  1. Valued members of our community, I hope you've enjoyed reading through this year's awards ceremony. I know it's a lot of text, a lot of recognition, just a lot to read overall! But, in particular, I hope what you take away from this ceremony is the full feeling of gratitude and appreciation that pours out from what we're doing. I'd imagine it's hard to understand, before you reach the command levels of our community, just how much work is going on behind the scenes to pull off everything we do. But let me pull back the curtain and point out just how much this exercise is choreograph

  10. We now begin our most joyous tradition: Recognizing our fellow members for all the hard work they've put in over the course of the year, now only in writing their characters – although we have two sets of awards especially for recognizing achievements on that front (General Awards and Duty Post Awards) – but also for helping us build an intentional, heart-filled, international community. If this is your first ceremony: Welcome! We hope you'll join us for many more following. If you're an old pro at this: Thanks for sticking with us all these years. Your commitment, dedication, and creati

  13. Welcome to day one of the annual Awards Ceremony! We’re very excited to present the General Awards. The General (Ship) Awards have been presented by each captain to their crew. The winners this year, as in previous years, were chosen by the fleet’s commanding officers (or in cases where the commanding officer was also nominated, the first officer was called in to decide) from the nominations made by you! This is your chance to see how each of the other ships did and see who picked up what award. The Order of Starfleet Merit and Achievement First Class (TOSMA) The Order

  16. This was a lot of fun! My favorite things represented here are comics, Star Trek ships and the friends I've made here on UFOP:SB118! This is the culmanation of more hours of work than I'd like to admit, scouring an absurd amount of comics to gather certain elements and a 30 layer, 85MB photoshop file.

  24. Well that's a wrap! This year's Awards Ceremony comes to a close as we take stock of the past year's worth of writing and fellowship in our community. It's been an amazing 25 years forging these traditions and building Star Trek stories. Before taking a few moments to thank the folks who made this ceremony possible, I want to recall last year's ceremony: Like so many things we do, the end result comes off like a song – impeccably managed, orchestrated with grace and ease, tied up with a bow and looking like a commercial product put together by a team of paid professionals. But as

  25. Welcome to the final day of the awards ceremony! So far this week we’ve announced the recipients of the Staff, General, Length of Service and Special Awards. Today we present the Duty Post awards. Each award here focuses on a different department, from the major ones – medical, operations or engineering – to the more unique – diplomacy, intel or marines. Even civilians have a chance to be recognised for the valuable contributions that can be made to our stories by those who prefer the path less worn. Each of these awards recognises a player for excellence in simming their duty post.

  27. Welcome to Day 2 of our yearly awards ceremony! Today we start with our Staff Awards, reserved for those who have achieved the rank of commander or higher. These awards recognize the hard work of those who command ships and help administer our community. They 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. Just like with last year's selection, the first officers of the fleet were empaneled to vote on the nominations for each staff award, providing recommendations to the EC

This is your chance to see how each of the other ships did and see who picked up what award.

  29. Hey everyone! Thanks Jordan for that excellent introduction. It's always nice to consider the history of our ceremony and what to expect in the next few days, both for the benefit of new players and a reminder for the rest of us. I absolutely love this time of year - it's all about you and recognising the many awesome ways you make this community such a fun place to be. I love the role of awards facilitator and being able to bring all of this together so it's an honor and privilege to get to do this for the second year in a row. This year, the response to our call for nominations was

  30. We have 10 simming superstars in the Duty Post category to get us started in style. 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 recognised for the valuable contributions that can be made to our stories by those who prefer the path less worn. Each of these awards recognises 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 a

  31. I wanted to say so much throughout this, but I kept getting behind with all the other festivities. Now that it’s ended, I can put out what I wanted to say since the beginning. @Kali Nicholotti: You are wonderful. You have been a cornerstone of this fleet for longer than I’ve been a member, and I have enjoyed the privilege of watching you, and learning from the best. Earning TOSMA has been a long time coming, and your abilities when it comes to writing the tricky post of Intelligence is something we can all appreciate. You rock, and I am so glad you are here with us. @Artinus Serinus

  36. I chose Timothy Dalton as Kells's avatar years ago at the suggestion of @Moonsong, and finding formalwear for a former James Bond makes dressing Kells for the awards a snap! (Although he looks kinda angry here. So maybe he doesn't like dressing up, eh?)

  41. Hello and welcome to the 24th annual awards ceremony in our 25th year of our community! There's so much I always want to say, year-after-year as part of this introduction. I'll try and be quick so that we can dive in! First, at the end of the ceremony we'll have more detailed thanks and recognition for the process of getting all this done – so please be on the lookout for that on the last day. But right up front I just want to say thanks both to Cmdr. Thoran who was this year's awards facilitator. It's a really huge job and he handled it beautifully. And thanks to all the staff who

  42. This is an appreciation shout out for the crew of the USS Gorkon! Our last (current) mission saw us in Deep Space, in deep sleep, and about twenty years in the past stuck in a dream. Awakening to a life as a member of a Maquis Resistance Cell on the raider Skarbek , everyone took to it immediately, temporarily redesigning aspects of their character makeup and made it work. It was truly an awesome mission (it's still going on) and there's so much love on the Gorkon for everyone's effort in bringing the Maquis to life in our own special way. Thank you, everyone, and especially @Quinn Reyno

This year, we have an extra special presentation with the second winner for the Great Bird Award! Great Bird Award This award is the highest honor given to any officer, and has only been given once in the history of the group. It is given to an officer who helps develop and/or invents a new way of simming, a new way of thinking, or a new way of looking at the Star Trek universe.

  44. This year we had two sets of special commendations we wanted to give out alongside our awards: Written by Fleet Captain Sal Taybrim: Jalana Rajel - for incredible dedication year after year to The (Image) Collective. She's consistently helpful with graphics of all kinds: New awards, character portraits, and more! And, she's consistently a friendly and helpful staff member for StarBase 118.
