Winner! Keeping Up With The Harlans (Lieutenant Commander Yumi Han, Warrant Officer Arlan Harlan, Petty Officer 3rd Class Gianna Djokovic)

"Keeping Up With the Harlans was well-written to the point that I was outright surprised to learn how improvisational the actual collaborative writing of it was. (and this month was a tough one to pick just one Outstanding Post, mind you.) For a bunch of new characters who I had never seen before and might never see again, their dialogue and motives seemed more like those of a multigenerational North vs. South saga than the typical walk-on cameo roles of standard non-recurring NPCs. Keeping Up With the Harlans couldn't have been easy to write, but the writers made it look easy and inspiring."

"Keeping Up With the Harlans A very entertaining look into the life of a great character."

"There were several standout posts in the interlude, but meeting Harlan's family was a revelation into how he came to be who he is and how much of that is rooted in where he came from. I like to see a piece of every crew member's family at least once, and this was a surprising one."

"It is hard to take a character, a long-established character, and show a new aspect that is fresh and surprising. Harlan's family was completely unexpected, in a good way. This interlude really brought out a lot in Harlan's background. The reactions of his family and the obvious impact it has had on his life were revealing. Well done!"

My congratulations go out to the authors.
