"She is always working to make the sim better. Perhaps it is part of her being command staff, but I think that her being part of the command staff is a reflection of her dedication."

"I had a great time writing JPs with Desai this month!"

"Desai had a strong month appearing in several plot missions. Well done!"

"Seriously, what would we have done without her in May?! I am thankful for the energy and time she puts in to making her character authentic and interesting. I feel like the sci-fi science writing is impressive and helpful in keeping things interesting for the whole ship. I also love the overlay of spirituality to all the movements."

"Audrey has been amazing this month with running this story arc. Her guidelines and help has been vital to the success of these JPs. I have enjoyed this storyline and its success is in large part because of Audrey."

"She deserves recognition for her dedication to the sim and her tireless quest for excellence. She has provided leadership worthy of the second officer position and writing that is nuanced and deft. Thank you!"

"The mirror universe JPs were a lot of fun - Doug's work on these JPs got a lot of people excited. It's an interesting way to re-imagine our characters that adds depth to our "normal" Firebird personas."

"I really enjoyed Harlan's responses on the mirror universe post. I know it can be difficult writing two sides of the same character in the same post and he handled it with ease. Harlan's writing is generally great and I look forward to getting some JPs with him."

"I think he has added lots of value to the ship over the months and his work on the mirror universe has been awesome."

"Doug had a good month of writing and a lot of activity on Slack. He's ready to throw Harlan into any situation and I look forward to reading how he handles them. Doug has also been a constant on Slack, and has new things to share."

"Doug's presence and can-do attitude are critical to the success of the ship. He's always ready to jump in and his eagerness to write this past month has been welcome. Great job embracing the Mirror Universe setting and encouraging others to participate."

“One last sendoff for Luka after her promotion - You Can't Take The Ensign Out Of The Lieutenant was my favorite JP this month.”

“This is partly to wish this character a fond farewell for now and to celebrate several strong posts from this month. Obviously I'm biased towards Friendzone, but that wasn't the only one where Luka had some strong moments of humor and personality.”

“Luka has been a part of some of the most iconic JPs in the Firebird’s history. Her writing has continued to be strong and I will miss her when she is gone.”

"Though we didn't see a lot of Gantt in the Mission 2 finale, his NPC Leed was a breath of fresh air in "Long Shot." He is around on the team chat a lot, ready with words of wit and wisdom and compassion. And he has done a lot of writing this month in support of other characters for JPs that will be posted soon. That kind of giving nature doesn't often draw attention to itself, but it deserves recognition. Gantt and Richard are guys who are always there when you need them."

"Gantt is written with a lot of heart. Whether it is saving us from things about to explode or being in the right place at the right time to push the story along, or even breaking hearts with his roguish charm, he is a key component of the Firebird crew. This award is well deserved!"

"I've had very little posting time with liam. But I hope to have a lot more. Already from the lowest rank on the ship he's made such an impact with his characters. I look forward to more and more posts with him."

"Gia is memorable in every JP she is in. A bright and fresh personality. In addition to a well-written character, she also adds descriptions of her surroundings."

"Liam has no issues playing with as low of a rank as you can and really accepts the 'I am as green as they come' moniker and runs with it. The posts for Gia are very well thought out and descriptive. And has a early Wesley Crusher feel where yes even the lowest rank on a ship still has a story to tell. Great job."

"Liam has really bought into the whole mythos behind the Firebird. His writing shows that any person in the crew, regardless of rank, can have an important and substantive impact on the story and the ship. Well done!"

"I loved the twist of her being the mole and want to see where this leads for her character!"

"Her storyline was central to several important posts and they were enriched by the care she put into creating arcs between them. Also for often encouraging others on slack in spite of her own problems."

"Yumi is steady. I am pretty sure that I have nominated her before, but I will do so again. This last month has seen great development, and interesting storylines developing. She is constantly pushing us to write better. Reflecting on the plots and character developments that we are all working on. Her incarceration is a plotline I am very interested in seeing resolved."

"I've really enjoyed Yumi's character portrays these last few months. She's such an excellent story teller."

"Yumi's character is written with such nuance and dedication. I love reading about her."

Jackson has been the driving force between morale and reached out to most of the crew. He makes me want to reach out to more of the crew. For this I nominate him for crew choice.

For trying to come up with lots of ways for the crew to interact with each other.

Smith has worked hard to reach out to almost every member of the crew. Half of March's posts involve him. He's gone above and beyond to get everyone going and engaged.

“It does't seem right to nominate anyone else this month. Desai took me by the horns and dragged me kicking and screaming into the simm's mission, storyline and ensured I made a proper entrance lol. But aside from all of that ;) This woman is beyond an amazing writing. The depth of detail and research she draws into her character and the storyline is intense and it works so amazingly well. It drowns us in the ocean that is science and leaves us breathing and wanting more. As a person, Audrey is beyond amazing. She is so supportive in both an IC and OOC role. She's not afraid to take a person by the hand and push them to reach the potential she believes she sees in each individual. The woman has a heart of gold :)”

“It was awesome to write a non-counseling post that was still reasonably therapeutic to some degree. Savin was able to learn some things about Desai that he'd likely not have learned in a formal session.”
“Wow. Desai has supreme abilities to put me in the character's shoes through concrete physical details. Always a pleasure to read!”

“Desai is a powerful character. She has the feeling of a real person and helps draw me further into the story. I appreciate all of the detail and deftness in her writing. Plus ++ science!”

"The Assault on Isengard."

"One of our most active players, even in this holiday month. Desai puts a lot of thought and care into her writing, and it shows. A devoted science nerd, she makes big contributions to every JP she is in. And beyond her position, Desai made a lot of connections with other PCs this month. To me, this one two punch would deserve a Library Award on one side and a Friendship Ribbon on the other together, but together they adds up to a Crew's Choice for me."

"Assault on Isenguard was such a fun post and a great idea. I haven't gotten to write with Desai much but I look forward to it in the future."

"Desai has been part of some of my favorite JPs thus far. Her sections in Interlude With Family were so well written. She brings incredible descriptions and depth to her character. It is easy to appreciate her knowledge of science and she uses them well to add to the story, not overwhelm it. She is certainly one of the best of the crew and well deserving of the Crew's Choice award."

"Yumi has played a large role in character, and out of character she has done outstanding work filling in for me while I was away. I appreciate her hard work."

"Sarah shines--she helps track everything on Trello but also gives great advice during JPs for future directions. She's considerate and supportive. Her writing is a pleasure to read and she has some of the best metaphors I've ever seen. She breaths life into NPCs and is one reason this SIM is a joy."

"Without Han, I never would've been able to explore a specific counseling side of Savin's character, and the player seems very knowledgeable on the subject. She is a joy to write with."

"Yumi is one of the bedrock characters on the ship. She is involved in making the plot better every time she takes the stage. We are lucky to have her. I look forward to much more from our craft intelligence chief."
Lieutenant JG Luka Stern

(July) "So many good stories with deep character insights. A real treat to read her Stern's thoughts and introspections."

"Karen is great. She works hard, writes well, and encourages and supports others. The Firebird would not be as great without her."

"Great job on shore leave posts with wonderful interactions with the rest of the crew!"

"Luka is, in many ways, the heart of the crew. She isn't the best fighter, highest ranked or most socially adept. But she does represent the connections that make a diverse crew a family. She is the type of character that shows anyone in an position can be important and loved

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

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

"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."

Lieutenant Commander Ina Nici
Mon May 8th, 2017 @ 2:25am
Her outstanding leadership, guidance, and willingness to involve herself with many crew, have earned her the selection of her fellow cremates.

"For taking on several multi-part posts, organizing them on slack and overall activity to encourage things forward, I nominate Nici. She (he) was one of the strong characters that helped carry a strong month. I look forward to interacting with Nici in character and in slack."

"For her deep posting and top notch writing skills. She earns my vote for crew's choice."

There were a number of people who were nominated for this award but Jackson received the most: This is a character (and writer) who made me feel at home right away. He has written with a various other members of the crew, writes well, and responds to tags quickly. Well envisioned character who's arc has been set up beautifully. My proud pick for Crew's Choice.
