It is with the saddest heart I post tonight on command. Steven Sigle has passed on due to complications from COVID on July 29th, 2021. I like the rest of you are stunned and probably in shock. Words can not express the loss many of us will feel. Steven was quick to laugh, first to make you smile when you were feeling down, and at times drive you crazy with his stubborn streak. I used to say to him all the time that the world was a better place because he was in it. Now we will have to settle for knowing that he is watching out for us from above.
Commodore Steven “Darth Tadpole” Sigle joined the site on April 13, 2005. Throughout his time here on STF, he was highly active in the club serving as Personnel Director, Assistant Personnel Director, Fleet Commander, Assistant Fleet Commander, EGO, Newsletter contributor, and Awards Coordinator. He was also the Captain of the USS Odin which coincidentally was the perfect ship reflecting his love of the Marvel Universe. While he wrote many different characters across many ships in his years here, Commander Jacen Drayke of the USS Atlantis is one of the longest continual play of a single character in STF history.
His dad described Steven as a spiritual-minded, intelligent man that deeply cared for people. I don’t think I could have described him better. I have spoken with his family about ways to pay your respects. Due to the sudden and unexpected circumstances, they are still trying to come to terms with Steven’s loss. Steven’s family is holding a private funeral so they have asked for you to post any condolences you wish to send to the family in his email. If you don’t have it you can use his contact button which goes to his main email. https://www.star-fleet.com/core/profile/ssigle/
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. I will forever carry Steven in mine.

The news of Steven’s passing saddens me greatly and leaves me at a loss for words. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and kids, his family and all those who loved him. He will be missed and his loss will be felt greatly.
He was a pleasure to write with, a good friend to talk with, and had a humor that will be missed more than I can say. I wish peace for his family.
I did not know Steven outside of his writing and contributions to STF but he was amazing to write with and his talent will be missed. He was always around to help anyone who needed it. My thoughts and condolences to his family.
My deepest, deepest condolences to Steve’s family and friends. This is a tragedy. He and his loved ones will be in my thoughts.
Like everyone, I will mourn and miss him. He taught me so much and was ever ready even for last minute, late and (in my mind) stupid questions.
My heart felt blessings to his family. He will be sadly and surely missed.
All my love to eternity… Melissa the Mobstress
I am beyond stunned to hear this. Steven has been a part of this club for as long as I can remember and we did some wonderful writing together years ago on OED V. My heat goes out to his family and his friends and to everyone who knew him.
For what I could experience with Steven, I can say he was a real gentleman and fine writer. I learned, like many, a lot from him. This sudden loss was a shock to me, who I had almost felt to tell him of my return aboard the Odin in the next days…
I wish him to find happiness and a fine crew up there, to guide them among the stars, perhaps reaching where no man has gone before.
He was a magnificent Captain, but foremost a sweet man. You’ll be missed, Steven.
Condolences to his family and to all friends, STFers and not.
Your CSO and friend, Jay Luistro
