The Pioneer Fleet Report - May 2020

USS Athena

Commanding Officer: Lindsay Bayes

Crew Posting Level: 6
Senior Staff Posting Level: 6
Overall Ship Health: 6

Ship Status: We’ve been holding steady as people adjust to the oft-changing variables in their lives. But we’ve been making steady progress on the sim and are about to enact the final piece of the puzzle. Our newest crew are engaged in threads at Starbase 157, while they try to figure out what happened to the Athena and await it’s (hopeful) return. Meanwhile, side sims continue. Posting limits were relaxed until June 1st, as per the FComm, and we’ll be nudging people once again as needed.

Miriam and I are going to be working on some hopefully fun things for the crew in the next while.

Spotlight: A hat tip to Silke, Anthony, and Meli for jumping into the fray of the main sim that the GM set up for them.

Vacancies: While the ship is quite full we could accept one JO each in Sec and Eng.


Executive Officer: No report submitted


Gamemaster: Ian Kerby

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 7

Sim Overview: Due to factors beyond anyone’s control, the crew continues to gather themselves for the return to Risa.

Spotlight:


FComm’s Comments: The ship in and of itself is doing well. Posting is above the required, almost double in fact. There are some AWOL’s that could become problematic, but as posting limits were suspended for the month these are not a concern at this time.


USS Atlantis

Commanding Officer: Kate O’Neill

Crew Posting Level: 8
Senior Staff Posting Level: 8
Overall Ship Health: 8

Ship Status: The Atlantis is bustling with adventure and excitement. First off we have a new XO. I am so pleased and happy to welcome Gene Gibbs as our second in charge. I am also thrilled to announce two new members joining the ship over the past month: Mel Aragon and Charlie Shankle. I know they will be a welcomed addition to the crew with their exciting new storylines and character plans. As to the main sim, we have an away team helping an attacked freighter. On the Atlantis, we are trying to tractor beam over the ship attacking the freighter and are running into some trouble with perky fighters. Bring on the coffee and options!

Spotlight: Well, that can only be given to James Sinclair and Melissa Aragon. Mel’s edition of Lieutenant Auleraine Brison has been a welcomed surprise to the crew. I am not sure however that as big and brawny as our security chief is he will be able to handle a woman half his body weight. Aureline is a smart, fun, and interesting character to read. Each thread opens up another aspect of Brison’s life and I am utterly enjoying meeting and learning about her character.

Vacancies: Are you looking for Adventure? Are you seeking out excitement? Are you tired of sitting at your console on some backwater world with nothing but a pint of Rum Raisin ice cream and wondering why you thought that poster with the perfect smile from Starfleet Headquarters convinced you this job would change your life? Wait no more we have the transfer for you. Come to the USS Atlantis. We have every department accepting applications. From creating exploding green goo in our science labs to learning how to take down an enemy with a drink in one hand. The Atlantis is brand spanking new and looking for you. Drop a line and we will get all your paperwork in on time to start a brand new career on the USS Atlantis.

Sim Overview: The sim seems to have slowed to a stop. I’ve tried to give it a little burst of action, but it still hasn’t turned it up to where I’d like it to be. I think I’m going to take it another way. Hee Hee.

Spotlight:


FComm’s Comments: The Atlantis is doing very well, posts are up significantly; triple the required number for the period. The main sim should see some pickup over the next period, and the number of side sims has grown dramatically. Some concern is to be had regarding exceedingly AWOL personnel, but as posting limits were suspended for the period, this will be addressed in the next review period.


USS Dresden

Commanding Officer: Jerome Davis

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 7

Ship Status: Though in a bit of a slow spot as I began my GM search, with several members on either LOA or AWOL status much of the past month… it was a bit rough. But we’re coming through and moving forward. Looking at possible staffing changes to at least one position due to the impact of successive AWOL’s.

Currently, the Dresden is berthed at Starbase 1 and the crew is on Shore Leave for the “next few months” (IC) for resup & refit. This moved us into about six weeks of Shipwide Side Sims while we secure a new GM with a hopeful start date of July 1, 2020.

A little bumpy start out the gate from COVID down turn but I feel good on where we’re heading.

Condor

Spotlight: I’d like to give an at-a-boy to Ensign Charles Stevens in his role as Engineer Clinton Reed. Charles has done an amazing job since coming aboard and has likely put more thought into character background and character development than even yours truly. Charles continues to impress and look forward to gaming with him for months and years to come. Great job Charles!!

Vacancies: Gamemaster
Chief Science Officer
Medical Officers
Science Officers
Security Officers
Swings


Executive Officer: No report submitted


Gamemaster: No report submitted


FComm’s Comments: The loss of the GM has proven somewhat difficult, but the crew has kept above the posting requirements; almost doubling the required number for the period. The consistent AWOL’s in the Department Heads are worrisome, but the CO has a plan to address. Will discuss changes next month if the issue continues.


USS Ogawa

Commanding Officer: Calé Reilly

Crew Posting Level: 6
Senior Staff Posting Level: 6
Overall Ship Health: 7

Ship Status: The new sim has started and we have had some good byes and some welcomes crew wise. Posts have stayed at a good level and with the sim getting more involved I can’t wait to see what people will do next.

Spotlight: Amber and Lori have had some really interesting posts. Silke and Nick have really impressed me with their characters interactions. Huge spotlight for our outgoing CoP Sarah who we are going to miss.

Vacancies: Swings or JOs. Please contact myself or Linds if you have an idea.


Executive Officer: Lindsay Bayes

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 8
Overall Ship Health: 8

Ship Status: Despite a few people on LOA or just generally held up by RL, the Ogawa was still hopping in May! At nearly 300 posts, the crew is settling into the main sim that Geoff started and it looks to be like a lot of fun! I’ve been settling in as XO and getting my character meeting the crew. Really happy with where things are at and thoguh we’re keeping an eye on AWOLs, the ship is very steady and healthy.

Spotlight: Geoff for his zany sim that is going to be lots of fun. Also a big shout out to Brandon, who has been carrying the med department more than usual as others deal with RL stuff. I appreciate his efforts greatly.

Vacancies:


Gamemaster: No report submitted


FComm’s Comments: The Ogawa is seeing solid levels of activity, double the required posts for the period. Few AWOL’s mean the crew as a whole is engaged and participating, and the ship appears to be firing on all cylinders.


Outpost 42

Commanding Officer: Adam W.

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 2
Overall Ship Health: 5

Ship Status: Nice month from the crew with 83 posts in May. The roster is full with some great and proactive roleplayers. Which is good as the main sim hasn’t made much progress forward. The end of May marks the end of the Pioneer Fleet’s relaxed posting limits. The level of activity from the CO and the GM needs to improve. At a minimum I hope to address the CO side of that one way or the other in June.

Spotlight: Recent roster additions James Sinclair and Melissa Aragon have made some nice contributions, including in their thread with each other about the challenges of getting some fry bread to eat.

Vacancies: none


Executive Officer: Kate O’Neill

Crew Posting Level: 8
Senior Staff Posting Level: 8
Overall Ship Health: 8

Ship Status: The Outpost is a hubbub of excitement with strange visitors abound or there was a costume party Starfleet was not informed of. Unfortunately, those guests in the promenade are not carrying canapes to share. Elsewhere on the outpost, we have a new family arriving. Harry McKinley and his son Desmond have made the decision to join our happy family so stop by and say hello. Jessica and Aedan are about to create a mini war on Farius Prime going after an old grudge. Will Aedan have the skills that pay the bills or has his new life as a dad softened him up. Our Klingon pirate and Nikki seem to be getting along rather well. We may need to keep an eye on that pair and the financial records of the Brako Family Industries. According to the Dow Jones Index, their stock went up ten points but then again everyone loves a great hotel. Toveka and Tenkiller are about to have an unexpected dinner. I can’t wait to see what they order for dessert. Nathan and Chloe are still looking for a handyman to fix the hole in the wall in their hole in the wall apartment on Cestus III. If you know someone shoot them a line for a great contractor.

Spotlight: I would like to spotlight RobJ. I am intrigued as to discovering his character and the dynamic relationship between him and his son Desmond. His entry to the Outpost has started off with a bang. I can’t see where we get to go from here.

Vacancies:


Gamemaster: No report submitted


FComm’s Comments: The Outpost has struggled a bit recently, but the intake of several new and very active players should see posts going up significantly over the next review period. As expressed by the CO, some key roles have had more than average lapses in activity, but as the posting limits were relaxed for the period, there is some leeway to grant another review period to see improvement.
