5) Upcoming Month's Goals
Yes! It's the fourth monthly report. As we didn't have very much going in February, this covers both February and March. And what a month March was! We had a doubling of the crew, an vast increase in posts and we're now pushing forward into April on the heels of a simulated battle. What more could you want?
In the past two months, we've managed 11 posts, of which 9 of them were made in March. That's a huge jump and a big difference, and it can't have been made without your efforts and commitment to the Sim.
So I'd like to give a BIG thank you to everyone who joined us this past month, who gave this Sim a chance to give your characters life. And also to everyone on the Sim, both old and new, who helped push the storyline forward and to give the Aeon life. Thank you.
2) Crew Update
This past month we were joined by four new crew members.
- Ensign Liran Elar as Support Craft Pilot.
- Lieutenant Vanya Hudson-Riley as Chief Medical Officer.
- Lieutenant Lucius Gregory Hawke as Chief Security/Tactical Officer.
- Ensign Marla Kanso as Chief Flight Control Officer.
Welcome aboard one and all :)
3) News Flash
For those of you who are new, and haven't seen the past monthly reports, every month Fred Goony from the Starfleet News Network comes onto your screens to give a summary update of what has been going down on the Sim. This month, however, he has something different...
Welcome to the Starfleet News Network. I'm your host, Fred Goony.
Today we have an exclusive interview from an exciting person related to the USS Aeon, none other then Commodore Bel Moroi! Thank you for joining us, Commodore.
Bel: Of course! Happy to be here.
Fred: So, let's get straight to business as we have limited time here. How exactly did you get into Starfleet?
Bel: Just like the rest of us, I reckon. I applied and passed the entrance exams.
Fred: *laughs* And where did you pull your inspiration from in order to take those exams?
Bel: I had gone through the Vulcan Science Academy, before I applied to Starfleet. I had a bone to pick with my father: we didn't really get along when I was younger. I sure showed him, huh? *grins*
Fred: Indeed! You were the Captain of the Dalton for a while. How did you find that?
Bel: A sturdy and trustworthy vessel, as well as my first command. It'll have a special place in my heart, forever.
Fred: Do you have any experiences of your time on the Dalton you'd like to share?
Bel: Well, a lot of it was classified, considering it was a vessel used for testing prototypes - but I probably shouldn't even be telling you that. I do remember one time we flew into a sun to test some new shielding. Oh, and to hide from Ferengi trying to steal our new goodies.
Fred: Sounds exciting! What is your opinion of the Aeon?
Bel: Another fine ship. I like the Luna-class, it's very advanced. And the quarters are actually quite comfortable - much more so than on a Nova-class, let me tell you.
Fred: Indeed they are. Finally, we're told you are due to take on the position of Fleet Commander at Starbase 244. What's your views on that?
Bel: A rather serious matter, that is. With the collapse of the Romulan Empire, we need to keep a close eye on what's going on in the Neutral Zone. I'll be steering our forces in the sector to do just that.
Fred: The great Bel Moroi everyone! A big thank you to Bel for taking the time out to join us here in the studio.
Catch you all next time on the Starfleet News Network, keeping Starfleet current.
Hope you enjoyed that! For those of you not in the know, our XO led a previous Sim as Captain Bel Moroi, so a lot of that references that past material.
Still, this kind of format is open for the future as a way of giving your character a unique view you might not necessarily be able to show through the Sim. If you'd like your character interviewed by Fred Goony, please contact the Captain... he keeps being bugged for an interview himself so would happily hand it off to someone else :P
4) Awards & Promotions
This month, we have a fair few awards to deliver. So without further ado...
I'd like to award the Meritorious Newcomer of the Month Award to... Ensign Liran Elar, for strong writing and a well developed character! Playing a supporting role on a starship, rather than a departmental head position, can be a difficult job, but Ensign Elar seems to pull it off with ease! Congratulations!
This month's Most Improved Player of the Month Award goes to... Commander Barim Nash, as he has revitalised his role as XO with a new character and a new lease of life, and taken on a lot more responsibilities in managing the Sim. Thank you Commander!
Next is the Crew Choice Award, which is the award that you as a crew get to give each other. This month, the award goes to... Ensign Liran Elar! The crew obviously agrees with us, so congratulations again!
Finally, I'd like to award the Captain's Personal Merit to... Lieutenant Lucius Gregory Hawke, for the post Tactical Tests that he put together with us. It was well written and matched story driven action with good character focus. Well done Lieutenant!
That's it for awards this month, but there will be more next month as we push forward :)
5) Upcoming Month's Goals
For April, let's ramp back up and get more posts out there. We've got a simulated battle to get through, which you should all be getting involved with. Once we've passed the battle, we're going to be dropping straight into the main story thread of our mission, so there's lots to look forward to.
Keep up the great work, and thank you for choosing the USS Aeon :-)
