The results are in. Here are your October award winners:

Best Post (Single Author)

Lieutenant JG Patra Rommel
Structural/Environmental Specialist
USS Wayfarer

For “Scoring a date with Doctor Holliday”

The overly flirty doctor works in a Funniest Post or a Best Post.


Best Post (Joint Post)

Capt. Akeno Misaki & Cmdr. Mashiro Munetani “Shiro” & Lt. Ileah & Lt. Rosaleen O’Donnell & Lt. Raelyn Mckenzie & Lt. Mark Johnson & Lt. JG Luna Eclipse of the House of Martok
CO / XO / Y / COO / CSTO / CMO / FCO
USS Wayfarer

For “Day One – Beach Games! (Part 1)”

R&R posts don’t typically win the Best Posts awards, but this one was beautifully written and extremely engaging. Well done!


Funniest Post

Ensign Kitiuas Thenis & Lieutenant Bonnie “Bon-Bon” Durnell
Science Officer / Computer Systems Specialist
USS Sunfire

For “Meeting of a fellow crewmate”

Entertaining and… funny!


Genesis

Captain Shran dh’Klar
Commanding Officer
USS Washington

For “Past Present”

I haven’t read a good time travel post in a while. Nicely executed!


MVP

Lieutenant Bonnie “Bon-Bon” Durnell
Computer Systems Specialist
USS Sunfire

What doesn’t Lt. Durnell do? Always a top poster, driving the plot, and encouraging others. It’s just one of a many recognitions to a month-in and month-out superior performer.


Most Posts

Lieutenant Bonnie “Bon-Bon” Durnell
Computer Systems Specialist
USS Sunfire

For writing 14 posts.


Most Improved

Ensign Kitiuas Thenis
Science Officer
USS Sunfire

The Ensign really stepped up her game in October by starting several posts and creating excellent openings for others. A true pleasure to sim with!


Rookie of the Month

Lieutenant Amelia Jefferson
Chief Science Officer
USS Montana

The new Chief Science Officer joined when the sim had few regular members and really hit the ground running with great plot advancing posts.


Recruitment

Commander Michael Murphy
Executive Officer
USS Montana

Commander Murphy continues to actively recruit for the sim and has brought in more new players than anyone else on the Montana.


A great job by everyone this month. As always, I’m proud to be a part of this fleet and to be associated with so many great writers.

Monthly Awards: June 2022

Congratulations to those who won some real prizes at our annual gift drawing earlier this month. Here’s the first group to place their names on the big wheel for next year…

Best Post (Single Author)

Commander Samantha Howard
Chief Medical Officer
USS Washington

For “Progress”

Writing for doctors can be difficult, without constantly employing a deus ex machina to solve a problem. Spending time writing about the thinking process and coming up with a creative solution is sometimes the best kind of medical post. Love this one!


Best Post (Joint Post)

Capt. Rhenora Kaylen & Lt. Cmdr. Dean House & Lt. Ashlesha 4827/A & Ens. Kitiuas Thenis
CO / 2O / COO / SO
USS Sunfire

For “Bridge Crew”

This is a very interesting subject, not seen often in Trek posts, which kept me engaged. Well written, seamless even though multiple folks contributed, and just the right mix of personal interactions with technical jargon. Well done!


Funniest Post

Lieutenant Nerex
Flight Control Chief
USS Eminence

For “Fun During Downtime”

Ok, intentionally flying a shuttle into a black hole and dying over and over again is inherently funny!


Genesis

Captain Shran dh’Klar
Commanding Officer
USS Washington

For “Unexpected Adventure”

Unexpected, yes, and a perfect way to get the crew going.


MVP

Lieutenant JG Luna Eclipse of the House of Martok
Flight Control Officer
USS Wayfarer

Lt. jg. Luna has really developed her character in a short amount of time. She expertly writes the clash of the Human/Klingon slides while easily incorporating it into the mission with the rest of the crew. A great teammate!


Most Posts

Lieutenant Anna Thesia
Chief Medical Officer
USS Sunfire

For writing 10 posts.


Most Improved

Lieutenant Ashlesha 4827/A
Chief Operations Officer
USS Sunfire

Still relatively new to the Sunfire, Lt. Ashlesha continues to involve herself in all matters of the mission and consistently offers great ideas and well written posts. She is also super easy to work with, which is always a plus.


Rookie of the Month

None this month


Recruitment

None this month


It’s hard to believe this crazy group we call IDF has now been around for 21 whole years. Here’s to 21 more!
