StarBase 118 Staff Posted April 9, 2021 Share Posted April 9, 2021 The promotion to the rank of commander is a joyous occasion in our community – the result of years of writing, mentoring, and learning the ropes. The multi-step process in a promotion to Commander starts with a nomination from two members of the fleet at or above the rank of Commander, followed by an initial vote from the Captains Council to allow the examination process to begin. Then, the member must pass both a written exam, and a practical exam. Finally, another vote by the Captains Council confirms the promotion. Candidates must show that they have great simming skills, strong knowledge of Star Trek, and the foundations of leadership and teaching skills. The Captains Council is pleased to announce that Serala, First Officer of the USS Chin’toka, has been promoted to the rank of Commander! Commander Serala joined StarBase 118 in 2017, and was posted to the USS Atlantis as a security officer. Advancing through the ranks, she became chief of her department in 2019 before switching to the strategic operations officer duty post at the end of the year. In 2020, she was named First Officer of the Atlantis and remains in that post after the crew transferred over to their new vessel, the USS Chin’toka, in September 2020. In addition to simming aboard Chin’toka, Commander Serala writes for Karise Indobri, Chief Medical Officer of the USS Juneau. In addition to his simming, Jim, the writer for Serala and Indobri, is an active member of the Training Team, Image Collective, and Chat Team. He is a recipient of the B-Plot Award, Pathfinder Award, Khan Award, and Sheathed Sword, and he has received multiple ship commendations during the fleet’s annual State of the Federation Addresses. Please join us in congratulating Commander Serala on the forums! You can learn more about Serala on the wiki.
