Sim of the Month (for September 2013): Stargate: SG-10
Community Award: USS Ghost Rider
Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award: (for July 2013)Space Fleet – Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the Summary:
With Janelle James in the nearby market, Vreenak and Farooqi enter “The Bollard,” and are soon met by Harold Ambrose. Aboard ship, Capt. Barlow checks on Amelia Moore, then surprises Colin Byrne with the reinstatement of his old rank and the post of 2nd Officer. The surprise is then Barlow’s as during his meeting with Dr. Reese, he learns that his new physician has cracked the Gen 7 code, and can reprogram the nanoprobes at will. Marisol Hocevar oversees the patching of Hope’s largest hull breech as she reviews Vreenak’s potential supply purchases on her PADD.

Changing of the Guard: Shuni Retires, Titan and Others Promoted

The end of July saw a transition of command that has brought little in the way of operational changes to the FSF but big change in the way of public leadership. Admiral Jonathan Shuni, who originally created the FSF and has been it’s commanding officer for 20 years, announced his retirement from the position. He will stay on in an administrative role, taking care of technical aspects of the FSF and the Simming.Net server.

FSF Titan, who has been the FSF’s Executive Officer, has been promoted to the Commanding Officer administrative position. FSF Falk has moved up from Chief of Operations to Titan’s former position, and FSF Who has been voted in as the new Chief of Operations.

While this bodes a somewhat fundamental shift in the FSF administrative members, day-to-day operations will not change. Already, FSF Titan had been taking care of administrative duties comparable with his new position, and FSF Falk had been gaining oversight experience of the directors which will assist him in his duties now overseeing Fleet Command and assisting as FSF Executive Officer.

Despite the changes to the names at the top of the command chain, Admiral Shuni will still remain in an administrative position. The FSF founder and 20 year long leader will remain in charge of the website and technical aspects of FSF operations. He will continue to have a say in the direction of the FSF and will work along with the rest of the administrative team, who will all collectively continue to take the lead in moving the FSF forward.

Battlestar Galactica: Though Destruction, Perseverance

Two thousand years have passed since the last of the colonist arrived on Earth. In the process of accustoming themselves to the planet, they destroyed the remains of the original Battlestar Galactica and hid the truth of their identity from their ancestors.

However, not all evidence of their existence was whipped out. Journals, ship plans, histories, and philosophies were left behind, hidden in a collection of literature hidden under the Sphinx.

The United States Government decides to construct a new battlestar, named Galactica, in the hopes of exploring the vastness of the universe through the technology of jump drives.

However, shortly after the completion of the new Battlestar Galactica, the Cylons attack Earth in order to whip out the final descendants of the colonist. The Battlestar Galactica escapes the invasion with a full crew and a few civilians taken from Earth shortly before its inhalation. Led by Major Michael Baltar, the Battlestar Galactica jumps away just in the nick of time. As they are pursued, Baltar decides to risk the rest of humanity and return the descendants of the colonist back to the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

Fleet Activity Award: Delta Fleet
Summary Award: Star Trek: Eternity

Excerpt from the Summary:
Hope escapes the debris field, going to warp. Soon, Eternity is right on her heels. Each of the pursuer’s shots demonstrates massive power which threatens to denude the fleeing Intrepid class vessel of her shields. On the bridge, Capt. Barlow is silent and studious as Vreenak discusses options, maneuvers and power reroute with LtCdr Moore, Ens. Farooqi and Lt. Hocevar. In Sickbay, the newcomer, Reese, fights to save the life of a severely burned Colin Byrne, until sudden power demands plunge the compartment into blackness, taking the EMH as well.
