  4. Hey folks, Wanted to make sure you all saw this Graphics Contest retrospective by Capt. Sal Taybrim, which we posted on the news a few days ago. Although the contest has ended, we wanted to feature the winners of this contest and thank everyone who participated, including Capt. Jalana Rajel, who originated and facilitated the contest.

  17. Thank you for this wonderful introduction! So now that we've wrapped up all parts of the ceremony, we bring our week of accolades to a close with some special recognition. First, I'd like to take a moment to give major applause for Fleet Captain Renos – James – who really worked absolutely tirelessly throughout this entire ceremony to ensure that everything went off without a hitch. It's hard to imagine just how many pieces have to come together for these events until you've done it, but rest assured it was basically two weeks of constant work. Honestly, this would not have happened without him, so let's give him some kudos! In addition. Thanks to all the other people who helped make this happen, including: Cmdr. Roshanara Rahman – Rich – who spearheaded this new format and introduced the Featured Missions segment; the First Officers of the fleet, for helping choose the Staff Award winners; the Awards Committee which selected the Duty Post and Special Award winners from the submitted nominations; the commanding officers of the fleet, who put in a lot of time and effort to review the nominations for their ships and ensure that the right people are selected for awards; and, of course, all of you who submit wonderful, heartfelt nominations each year! I would like to recognize Fleet Captain Aron Kells – Tony – who made a huge effort for the 2015 ceremony and was a big help for James in facilitating the hand-off of responsibilities. He didn't win any awards this year, but mostly because we've give him just about every award there is already Now for some wrap-up stuff: Make sure you take our quick survey about the ceremony to let us how you think it went. The full ceremony has been posted on the wiki now, as with all previous ceremonies. Thanks again for being a part of this special experience!
  18. I'm interested to hear what everyone thought of our new Awards Ceremony format, which spans a week and includes the new Featured Missions segment. Please use the poll above – your choices will be anonymous – and leave us any comments below!

  20. Welcome to day five of our 20th annual awards ceremony! So far this week we’ve announced the winners of the Staff Awards, Length of Service Awards, Special Awards, and Duty Post Awards. Now we’re delighted to share the General (Ship) Awards, which have been presented by each captain to their crew. This is your chance to see how each of the other ships did and see who picked up what award. This is another category that has seen new awards added including: The Laudean Commendation, awarded for achievements in exploration with new lifeforms. The recipient will have shown great creativity in many facets of species creation or expansion, including physiological, psychological, cultural, social, and more, and their creativity will inspire their fellow simmers. It can cover many aspects of species development, but should primarily be based in IC simming. The Khan Award recognizes a simmer who thoughtfully develops a three-dimensional villain over the course of a mission or more. The Q Award is given for continually surprising their crew with unexpected, devious plot twists throughout the year, replacing the Kalendra Award from the Special Awards category. The winners this year, as in 2015, 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! The Order of Starfleet Merit and Achievement First Class (TOSMA) The Order of Starfleet Merit and Achievement First Class is given to members who show great dedication in their behavior and simming abilities. A candidate for TOSMA regularly contributes good, solid ideas to the plot and character development. They also take the time to edit and proofread their sims to ensure quality in their writing. Tristam Core, USS Invicta Ayiana Sevo, USS Gorkon Talia Kaji, USS Doyle Varaan, USS Darwin Nathanial Wilmer, USS Constitution Oddas Aira, Embassy of Duronis II Theo Whittaker, StarBase 118 Ops The Genesis Award The Most Improved Simmer Award. For officers who show conspicuous effort in improving their simming skills. Rosalee, USS Invicta Cory Stoyer, USS Gorkon Brandon Craigi, USS Doyle Graeme Cook, USS Darwin Chelin ch’Gabor, USS Constitution T’Leira, Embassy of Duronis II Scotty Cross Given to an officer who shows extreme creativity while solving a plot dilemma or in-character plot twist. Della Vetri, USS Invicta R’Ven, USS Darwin Jerome Milsap, USS Constitution T’Mihn, Embassy of Duronis II Neelix Award For extra, out-of-character simming devotion. This includes, but isn't limited to, helping fellow officers who are in need of simming aid, visibility on the forums, OOC list presence, upkeep of wiki pages, etc. Raissa Moonsong, USS Invicta Sabrina Holly, USS Doyle Varaan, USS Darwin T’Mar, USS Constitution Mirra Ezo, StarBase 118 Ops Nebula Bar Awarded to a simmer who has shown great imagination when creating or expanding upon planets, stars, stellar phenomena, and other physical environments and settings, such that these settings create a convincing, descriptive, realistic environment that inspires other simmers or enhances the flow of a given plot. Luna Walker, USS Invicta Tal Tel-Ar, USS Doyle Didrik Stennes, USS Darwin Laudean Commendation Awarded for achievements in exploration with new lifeforms. The recipient will have shown great creativity in many facets of species creation or expansion, including physiological, psychological, cultural, social, and more, and their creativity will inspire their fellow simmers. The Laudean Commendation can cover many aspects of species development, but should primarily be based in IC simming. Saveron, USS Invicta Nugra, USS Doyle Renos, USS Darwin Silver Palm Awarded to a simmer who has consistently boosted the morale of his/her crew. The recipient will be known to be able to add that spark to a plot whenever it may be lagging, or may be able to consistently bring enjoyment or a bit of humour to the sim, whilst keeping such sims relevant and realistic. Ryan King, USS Invicta Brandon Craig, USS Doyle Maxwell Traenor, USS Darwin Antero Flynn, StarBase 118 Ops Sheathed Sword Presented to those to decide to inflict mental and/or physical trauma on their character, and then dive into the resulting emotions and choices in a realistic manner. The name comes from a line in a Robert Jordan book where a warrior must be prepared to 'sheath the sword' in his own body, i.e. take a grievous wound to achieve one's goal (in this case, more realistic simming) as opposed to an actual goal of the character. Marcus Dickens, USS Invicta Selene Faranfey, USS Doyle Trel’lis, StarBase 118 Ops B-Plot Award For those simmers who manage to show a good portion of the character's life despite the demands of the main plot. Rune Jolara, USS Invicta Jaxton Vee, USS Gorkon Alexander Bishop, USS Doyle Randal Shayne, USS Darwin Jalana Rakel, USS Constitution Tyr Waltas, Embassy of Duronis II The Russ Bar The Russ bar is awarded to a writer whose knowledge of Trek lore is extraordinary. Named for Tim Russ, the actor who played Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager, who was already a dedicated Star Trek fan before securing the role on the show. Tristam Core, USS Invicta Ceciri Hakashrii, USS Doyle Brell, USS Darwin Jalana Rajel, USS Constitution Trellis Vondaryan, StarBase 118 Ops Pathfinder Award Given to those who have shown great care in the mentoring of fellow members. T’Lea, USS Invicta Quinn Reynolds, USS Gorkon Talia Kaji, USS Doyle Renos, USS Darwin Rustyy Hael, USS Constitution Brayden Jorey, Embassy of Duronis II Tatash, StarBase 118 Ops Khan Award Awarded to a simmer who thoughtfully develops a three-dimensional villain over the course of a mission or more. Alora DeVeau, USS Invicta Alucard Vess, USS Gorkon Tal Tel-Ar, USS Doyle Maxwell Traenor, USS Darwin Hannibal Parker, Embassy of Duronis II Theo Whittaker, StarBase 118 Ops Q Award Awarded for continually surprising their crew with unexpected, devious plot twists throughout the year. Roshanara Rahman, USS Invicta Michelle Tonston, USS Doyle John Valdivia, USS Darwin Alexander Williams, USS Constitution Irina Pavlova, Embassy of Duronis II Sal Taybrim, StarBase 118 Ops Please join us in congratulating these talented players!
  21. As was said in the intro, I want to reiterate that the fleet's First Officers chose this year's winners from the nominations submitted by you folks! Congratulations to Emma (Quinn Reynolds) for winning BOTH the Staff Member of the Year award AND the Christopher Pike Pendant, which is the highest honor for commanding officers. Tony (Aron Kells) encapsulated most of my thoughts which is thoughtful, wonderful presentation to Emma in the SMotY award, but I just want to thank her again for everything she's brought to the Executive Council in terms of critical thinking, eloquent analysis, and camaraderie. She made a huge difference this year in a number of important decisions and discussions. And what an honor for Jamie (Sal Taybrim) to be awarded last year's Rising Star award, and this year win the James T. Kirk Cross, the highest honor for new captains. She has shown from nearly the very beginning of her tenure with us that she has the skills and intuition that make a great captain, a great leader, and a great community member. I'm so thankful that I get to be a part of the staff alongside people like Jamie, who have such a clear focus and understanding of our basic values here. Congratulations to her for everything she's accomplished – I'm so looking forward to what comes next for her! I already said my congrats to Ann (RAdml. Turner) in her presentation above, but the Picard Award is basically the highest honor anyone can achieve on the staff. It really denotes that someone has put in the extra effort over the course of many years, and has left a legacy that will be remembered long in the future. And that's no small thing when you're talking about a community with 22 years under its belt! So please join in congratulations to Ann who has spent nearly a decade with a focus on being a great member, and a great commanding officer. So many people have been touched by her kindness and empathy. And James! (Renos!) A cornerstone of the fleet, indeed – what better description for someone who has put so much heart and soul into the day-to-day operations of our fleet? He's also been an incredible help in making this very ceremony happening, helping to put together each and every day's worth of the awards as well as facilitating the process of organizing and choosing recipients. Thank you, thank you, thank you, James for everything you bring to the fleet And just because I don't want to miss anyone, thanks again to Nicole (Selene Faranfey) and Jon (John Nugra), which already received my kudos and congratulations above! You folks, and our other staff members, are really just the best. Let's not forget that many other staff members were recognized just a few months ago at our last December awards ceremony. We have an amazing staff!
