So, a relatively quiet month this time around but still with some remarkable posts being put out there!
Silver Unit of Distinction - this month saw us achieve the silver UoD for TF23. Considering it's been such a quiet month I think we should be really happy with this! We can't always get gold! Well done, all!
James filled in the monthly report this month and has sneakily nominated me for Writer of the Month which, for some bizarre reason, I won! He had this to say:
Writer of the Month:
Task Force 23 (tie):
Vanguard: Colonel Horatio Drake played by Jamie. The XO said: I have decided to complete the Monthly Report myself this month so we can recognize Jamie for how in depth and how good his posts are as Horatio Drake. This month he is running a mission to explore the USS Bretagne, whilst contending with a betrayal that happened at the previous mission with his XO and Drake's own hate for Starfleet. Jamie consistently shows Drake's state of mind in all his posts and ensures all posts are as highly detailed as possible.
Lastly, and a surprising one, is CO of the Quarter.
CO of the Quarter:
Task Force 23: Horatio Drake, Starbase Vanguard
This quarter, Starbase Vanguard has been at the top of its game. Much of this is due to its Commanding Officer. Not only is there a lot of mission-related posting going on, there is also a thriving civilian sector on the Starbase. There are some great writers and great posts on the sim as well.
Whilst this is very kind of them, I disagree with the fact that the success of this sim has more to do with me than anyone else on this sim and it's something that I talk about all the time. I was asked the other day by a new CO to the fleet, 'how have you made Vanguard so successful?'. My response was that I haven't done anything. I had an idea for a Marine Starbase years ago which turned into Protector... this is just an evolution of that. What makes this sim so utterly amazing and unique and brilliant is the incredible writers we have on board. The writers who talk about intricate details, the writers who have created merchants and shops and gardens, who run bars, who run infirmaries, who write posts with the biggest range of original ideas and exciting stories that I have ever seen in 14 years of simming. It is truly you who have made this sim what it is... I'm just glad to be a part of it!
Everyone will be receiving the Silver UoD this month on their service records as well as the CO's Merit award.
