It is that time again. Time to look back over what we have done and give recognition where it is due.

[Post of the Week] Eye of the Storm...Out! by Commander Malcom Llwyedd, Lieutenant Yumi Han, Ensign Jackson Smith, and Ensign Soto Gantt-

This post was the culmination of a lot of work. It is difficult to write a joint JP with so many characters and also involved combat. It also is unique because it brought two separate stories, Yumi's and Smith/ Soto/ Kipp, together. The award is well deserved.

Shipwide Awards

All crew are awarded the following:

Expeditionary Medal:The Expeditionary Medal is awarded to all crew members who have participated in the majority of the first operational mission of their simm (including the Commanding Officer).

Tour of Duty: Cardassian: This ribbon is issued to all participating players at the end of a mission that posts the simm to the borders or interior regions of Cardassian space.

[Individual Honors]

Captain's Personal Merit:

Lieutenant Ina Nici- In character, Lieutenant Ina was part of some crucial away teams this month. She showed leadership and poise. She also has been involved with a key subplot and the writing has been top notch. Out of character, Andrew has continued to be active despite changing jobs, being ill and dealing with floods. It sounds kind of biblical. His dedication, presence on Slack and excellent writing, have earned him this award.

Crew's Choice Award

Six different nominations were submitted for this award. The winner:

Lieutenant Yumi Han!

"Sarah's writing is scintillating!"

"Sarah works so hard on her posts and they are a delight to read."

"Motherly, sneaky and brilliant. Yumi showed multiple facets that added depth and entertainment to the story. She has excelled in every category."

"Particularly for Eye of the Storm: All Your Base Are Belong to Us. It's great to see Yumi's skills really coming to light. The writing is great, and everything she does feels important, connected to those she's helping."
