Funniest Post

 Lt. Sheeraashaa Genno

Is this Star Trek or Galaxy Quest?

Simple, but completely open ended for the crew mold the story in the spirit of open role playing.


MVP

Lt. John Wyatt
Chief Intelligence Officer
USS Chuck Norris

Lt. Wyatt created a whole different universe with a complex storyline that he perfectly weaved into the main plot in small segments.


Most Posts

Ens. Mack
Science Officer
USS Albion

For writing 28 posts.


Most Improved

Lt.jg. Steven Wright
Encryption Specialist
USS Chuck Norris

After being MIA for a bit due to real life, he came back strong at the end of month leading several joint posts that helped the crew drive the plot forward in a big way.


Rookie of the Month

Ens. Mack
Science Officer
USS Albion

Brand new to simming, Ensign Mack started with the rest of the Albion crew mid-month and still managed to produce a fleet-leading 28 posts! Even more than that, he integrated well into the game and learned how to include his character while also writing for others.


Recruitment

Ens. Robert Lee
Tactical Officer
USS Wayfarer

He started a conversation with someone that led to that individual joining another IDF sim. That’s how you recruit!


Well done to all! Keep role playing!

Monthly Awards: August 2020

We had a lot of great contributors in August, including some fantastic award winners below. However, there’s one thing missing: No Recruitment award. If you’re doing any work to recruit players to your game or the fleet, please make sure your CO is aware so they can nominate you for an award.

Best Post

Cmdr. Samantha Howard & Cmdr. Jonathan Grayson & Lt. Lisa Olsson

For “Bound but not broken PT 2”
Great conversation flow, and the element of danger is palpable.

Hilarious dialog about a shuttle named Debbie.


Genesis

Capt. Michael Meezo
Commanding Officer

For “Enter Lord Chaos”
An interesting antagonist escaping from prison, a good start to any mission!

Grayson does it again: Leading by example and filling in while the Captain had IRL items to deal with; A true example of what a team player XO looks like.

For “Down to the Surface”
A reality show camera crew on a starship?!? Only on the Chuck Norris.
