Ensigns and Explanations

This was a really outstanding joint post. The work started on slack and then everyone pitched in equally to bring it to fruition. It was a real pleasure being a small part of this post. My congratulations go out to the rest of the nominated posts and authors as well. The quality of writing was outstanding in them all. This type of dedication is what makes the Firebird a special ship. Thank you!

A Rising Storm

I enjoyed the argument between the Cardassian, especially the way they both heard the call of war but had different responses to it. The storm was a nice eerie backdrop. It made me want for us to race the Firebird out there to stop them ASAP!

"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."
-Malcom Llwyedd

"Eye of the Storm 4: ...Out! was an awesome thrillride. Cool setting, great action scene, spot-on dialog. Very exciting and I loved it. There were so many great posts this time it was hard to pick, but this one earned my POW vote."
-Luka Stern

"I thought Jackson was excellent in Eye of the Storm 4. His fight scene was well executed and he showed tremendous fight against a superior opponent. Way to battle!"
-Arlan Harlan

For PNPC Kipp Lak:

"A wonderful NPC that has been extremely useful to break the intense moments with all of the subtlety of Rowin Atkinson. He can take about any intense scene to one that feels less stressful and sometimes just plain outright awkward. I look forward to many more Kipp posts."
- Lieutenant Ina Nici

"Kipp is the most fantastic NPC--after Emily Mox, of course. He's a fully developed character who doesn't bring his own drama to the ship the way we PCs love to do, lol."
- Lieutenant Yumi Han

"Honor the Fallen was an awesome post with lots of great interaction from many characters. Nice job, all!"

"Honor the Fallen. This was a nice post to see how each person dealt with the death of one of their own. It showed a lot about each individual character."

"Honor the Fallen. A touching post with lots of brushes of character from everyone. "

"I feel that this post displays the very heart of Firebird. The coming together of a disparate group of entities to mourn the loss of a member. The connections that have grown between characters reflecting the connections between the players. If it is necessary to choose one person for the award, then I choose Luka who in her character has taken on the joys and sufferings of the crew in a singular person. As the Linguist she bridges the gaps between characters and gives the ship a central focus."

I'd like to add a little to this as well. I went and re-read this JP and it really has an emotional impact. The fact that the NPC who died was really an unknown before his death, makes it all the more powerful. Everyone added their part to the JP and it is incredibly emotional. I thank all of you for your efforts on this post. It really does represent each of us and the Firebird well.

A Rough Landing (Llwyedd, Smith)

"Rough Landing was a culmination of Jackson's story. Finally becoming a full fledged member of the crew and almost not having to keep any secrets from the rest of the crew. As his new job might give him some new ones to keep."

"Rough Landing was a really compelling piece of work and Jackson has a super interesting thing going on with his character history."

"A Rough Landing Loved it. The suspense. The Twist. Really good work."

Assault on Isengard

"Assault on Isengard [CD] was an awesome post--I loved it! Everyone involved deserves a standing ovation."

"Desai's idea for this post was inspired. A very original concept that gave tons of players a chance to flex their creativity and interact in humorous ways. We all had a blast writing it."

"The creativity of the JP, the flow from writer to writer and the laughs are enough to deserve a spot. Well done to all involved."

"We all need to be reminded that character development posts are very important. They allow writers to flex their creative muscles and have fun doing things their characters otherwise wouldn't be able to do. Kudos to Desai and all involved with this JP for making it fun for ALL of us."

Do No Harm

"I would like to nominate the ‘Do No Harm’ series of posts. They were really a joy to read, highlighting each and every writer and their respective characters. I thought the interactions were wonderfully written to tell a great story."

"For all the writers in Do No Harm, for the human way they approached the tense and terrifying reality that turned the Monterey's crew into a science lab. This was the heart of Mission 2 and they nailed it. All the combat would have been half as meaningful without the desire to save those people."

"Do No Harm. There were a lot of great JPs at the end of Mission 2, but none brought as many authors together as smoothly and with as much impact as "Do No Harm." Desai plotted the whole JP out very well with opportunities that all 7 writers contributed uniquely to. I felt like each character's personality stood out well from the others, which is hard to do when they're all in the same room. Each scene was smart and memorable in its own way and the built together to the ending we've all been working toward when they woke up the first member of the captive crew."

"The Do No Harm series is my selection for Outstanding Post. In every story, there is a climax. The point where all of the things that have come before come to fruition. The point where the marine enters the laboratory in Do No Harm, is that moment. It hammers home the reality of what the crew of the Monterey has suffered for twenty years. It raises the stakes. All of the descriptions were elegantly written and each writer was crucial to the story flowing forward. Kudos!"

(October 2018)

"I would like to nominate the Captain for this award for his portrayal of Jack Cunningham the Marine CO. His writing has inspired me to branch out the persona of Robert Schiano and make him more of a believable person. I appreciate that in more ways than one. I also feel that anytime a writer can inspire another they should be recognized."

"This scenario has required an extensive amount of planning and work. He has been writing a lot of characters and has done a lot to keep this fun and engaging mission going!"

"The comedic value Potter brings to the table continues with his pod. The combo of Potter, Lopt, and Kaya is providing not only a fun adventure, but putting several of the comedic relief characters together adds that much more to it. I'm particularly a fan of the interaction between Potter and Lopt in this post. Well done."

"Kipp Lak stayed in character yet managed to add in something new without retconning."

"It's a pleasure to read the Marine professionalism and no-nonesense attitude while still keeping to Starfleet values and not killing people just because. Cunningham is a perfect Marine and I'm looking forward to reading more of him. I think this mission is actually great for developing such a character."

(April 2019) "I am submitting this nomination under the Captain's name, however, I would like to nominate the whole crew for this award. I feel that the Crescendo series of posts, as well as the post titled "Call In The Calvary", are great examples of what this award is supposed to represent. I know that the whole crew has contributed to those posts. The amount of suspense, combined with the action make the posts a joy to read over and over again."

Awarded Mon Jun 3rd, 2019 @ 10:17pm
Nominated by Commander Yumi Han
(May 2019)

"I have been a simmer for nigh on 20 years now. I have seen Commanding Officers come and Commanding Officers go and I have never seen a CO so dedicated to everything. Captain Llwyedd is dedicated to his crew (writers) and ensures that the stories are solid and involve everyone in some way. He is also dedicated to a word, and that word is community. He ensures that we are not just here telling a story, but we are here as friends and as a community. This is something that I try to emulate in the sim that I am CO of. Most of all Captain Llwyedd actually makes you want to succeed, to write something that is truly exceptional. There are few people that I have met that give you that want, that drive to do well. I am not only happy to be a part of this sim, but I am happy to call Captain Malcom Llwyedd friend."

"Fred goes to great lengths (in terms of tags and in terms of behind-the-scenes and in terms of the community) to keep multiple interconnected storylines and Slack and Firebird membership moving right along. (He has demonstrated this commitment often enough that it's not just a one-hit wonder sort of thing.)"

"Captain has been the real best in the years we've been doing this sim. I wouldn't have pushed Harlan nearly as much without Captain behind me encouraging and inspiring my writing. He is truly deserving of this award as not only a great commander, but one of the best people."

"Fred is doing an outstanding job with running the game. He's not afraid to run apparently dozens of NPCs to both, gently steer events/posts in the right direction and, more importantly, make sure everybody is included and has something to do in a mission. He's like the glue that holds the ship together, which is rather well proven by Slack statistics: participation drops when he's on vacation."

"My Captain, My Captain. Fred has been an excellent leader and a phenomenal story teller. We as a crew have been blessed to have Fred at the helm of this exercise. Thank you Fred, not only for your work as the leader of the sim, but also your friendship and genuine interest in us and our lives. Thank you."

"Few sim captains could handle such a large crew or so many comings and goings, but Fred handles it all with impressive patience and inspiration. He can improvise or carefully plan out a story arc with the best of them! We are always hungry to come back for the next space adventure he's cooked up. He is a friend to us all both inside and outside of the sim. We are lucky to have such an amazing person as the Firebird captain."
