Lieutenant Cynfor Rees
Mon May 7th, 2018 @ 8:19pm
"Cynfor is fun to write with. His good humor masks a secretive past, and I hope to see a lot more of both as his story lines develop."

“It has been great to add Howie back to the ship in a new role. This character's backstory is interesting and I look forward to seeing more of him as he gets settled into the ship.”
Jillian Mox

“Though first playing as an NPC it's awesome to see Jillian has finally swayed and joined our little nuthouse.”

“Though she's been a great designated hitter with guest characters in the past, it was awesome to have her join our regular lineup this month with Jillian Mox. Love her bubbly and thoughtful take on everyone's favorite nurse and space mom.”

“As an official PC Carrie Ann has brought Jillian Mox to life with complex emotions, valuable insights, and a deepening backstory. In a short time, she has gone from a support NPC to a compelling character.”

“It took a while for her to make the jump from NPC to PC but she is an amazing character. I look forward to seeing how she develops in the future.”
Lieutenant L'Nel Haadok

(March 2017)

She has done a great job blending in with the crew and story. She is willing to write with most people and dies a good job resounding quickly to tags.

L'Nel jumped in with both feet, engaging fully in the sim and interacting with other characters right away in meaningful (and amusing) ways.

For coming in late and being able to give weight to his role as MD.

While I haven't had the pleasure of posting with him. L'Nel has brought great comedy to the ship. I have laughed out loud reading more than one of his posts. I look forward to writing with him in the future.

What a wonderful addition to the crew! We have a superb new Chief of Security and Tactical. Lieutenant t'Aegis has quickly become familiar to the crew, jumping into 11 JPs over the past month. She also has built a solid identity that is interesting and will be very important to Mission 3. Thank you for coming to the Firebird!
Chief Petty Officer Charles Stephens JR

"This was the most agonizing decision among: Stehpens, Desai, and Savin. (I think Gia counts as a newcomer for August, pretty much?) In the end, I tip towards Stephens for his leadership role on the ship and bringing a new dimension to the lives of all our enlisted crew."

"We had three outstanding new players join this past month and it is hard to select just one. They all have proven themselves to be outstanding writers and are active on chat. However, the enlisted crew is a large part of the ship and the COB has already begun to bring out those story lines for the rest to read. I look forward to that emphasis bringing good change to the ship."
Commander Karen Myles

"Jack does a GREAT job writing Karen Myles. She's a very dynamic character and holy cow can she serve a verbal smackdown. Very much looking forward to getting to know her character better."
-Luka Stern

"He has done a lot of great posts recently and I am excited to see more. A great addition to the Firebird."
-Jackson Smith

"Jack has brought a new level of bad ass to the ship. Karen Myles is definitely a force to be reckoned with and I look forward to reading and writing with him more in the future."
-Ina Nici
Lieutenant Commander Yumi Han
Mon May 8th, 2017 @ 2:31am
"She has been a great addition this last month. Her posts are amazing, funny, and well written. I definitely look forward to having many more great interactions and stories from her."

"From the moment she boarded the Firebird, Yumi has been interesting, unique, funny, and engaging. A+!"

"This character is well thought out and fun to read. The writer has done a lot to be a part of the ship and to promote other writings. It's been a pleasure to be a part of several posts with this character and writer."
Lieutenant JG Luka Stern

It is not easy to integrate a character into posts who is a vital member without a flashy title. Luka has made meaningful contributions to both personal and mission JPs, has been willing to step in to and work with suggested ideas, and has developed a well-rounded ad easy to envision character. The writing is nicely done, too!
