The Infinite Fleet Report - September 2018

USS Chimera

Commanding Officer: Steve Johnson

Crew Posting Level: 4
Senior Staff Posting Level: 4
Overall Ship Health: 5

Ship Status: Overall the Chimera was slowly trudging along. However, with some recent changes we are hopefully going to be coming back up to speed. I’d like to welcome aboard the new crew, including my new XO Sam Pennington. Sam has agreed to take up the challenge of helping me out! Hopefully with Sam’s help, we’ll be able to get the Chimera humming along again.


Executive Officer: Sam Pennington

Crew Posting Level: 3
Senior Staff Posting Level: 3
Overall Ship Health: 4

Ship Status: Things are slow. Like they have been for a while. Crew seems unmotivated and because of that the sim is moving at quite a slow pace. Among the few JOs, the majority are currently AWOL. DHs seem to be inside limits, but barely. Senior staff have a similar problem. My position being very young, I’m still determining what’s causing this issue.

Spotlight: Steve Johnson for holding things together as best he can while a lot of changes are made to the crew and other new ideas are put into place.

Gamemaster: Luke Hung

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

Sim Overview: Sim hasn’t moved too much in the past month.


AFComm’s Comments: This has been a transitional period for the ship, with a number of changes taking place amongst the crew. Since the XO submitted their report the number of AWOLs have dropped with currently one player late posting and two others on LOA and a new Intel Officer has been appointed.

Hopefully with the number of changes in the crew, this will “gee up” the main sim and kick it into the next gear.

USS Constellation

Commanding Officer: Russell Watt

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

Ship Status: The ship was struggling due to CO, XO and GM being on LOA. Our new FComm, Krys has put a lot of work into ship, finding us a new GM (Philip) and many new crew members and helping our XO, Liam in administering the ship.

There have been weeks where there have only been one or two posts, actually that’s been the vast majority of weeks to be honest. The new crew, however has posted multiple posts in multiple threads in the past 7 days, 42 in total (more than half of the posts during the last month (77). I look forward to seeing the crew continuing to interact with each other and Phil’s mission in the months ahead.

I am currently updating the MOTD to make it fresh and new with a minty taste and nutty texture.

Spotlight: Mina Jackson for getting through her very real urge to strangle Raymond Luxury Yacht and through him, me for the suffering we have caused her CSO also for the posting.
Jimmy Watkin as a Doctor (and AFComm/aFComm) for continuing to provide support to the ship and for continuing posting.
Liam Schoepp (CrazyCog) who on his return from LOA took responsibility for the state of the ship and working with the crew to ensure posting continued, including starting a side sim.
Amanda Mercer for posting even though her sickbay contains a malfunctioning EMH who has an H on his forehead, calls her smeghead and insists on being called ‘Ace’ Rimmer’.
AJ Paulson for being AJ and keeping us entertained with his bacon streaks.
Krys Bromilow for being an awesome FComm and hitting the ground running as the new FComm, securing us a new GM, joining the ship as a JO in Security and finding us new Department Heads in Security and Operations and a new Counselor.

Executive Officer: Liam Schoepp

Crew Posting Level: 8
Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 9

Ship Status: This ship has been doing fantastic ever since our new Captain has graced us with his presence. I am glad to see that posting has gone up, and I am excited to see how far we can go with our insanity.

Spotlight: My spotlight goes to our new Captain. In the short time that he has been here, he has gotten posting levels back up to normal, invented a hilarious cleaning lady, and has inspired up all with his insanity. I look forward to looking alongside him in the future.

Gamemaster: Philip Graham

Crew Posting Level: 5

Overall Ship Health: 5

Sim Overview: I have been on board as the GM for about a week now, so the USS. Constellation is currently coming into contact with a space based carnival as a side sim. We are currently in between sims at the moment and waiting on a New Captain in order to proceed.

Spotlight: Russell Watts - For putting a huge amount of effort into multiple characters and being the center of the ship

Jeremy DeSpain - For jumping in with both feet when coming on board and trying to help increase the activity level on the ship

FComm’s Comments: Since I have joined the Connie and found a new CO and GM for her, the ship has definitely picked up in posts and activity. I am seeing very good things from her already and have no concerns at this time in regards to either her Command staff, crew or the new sim which is beginning. Great job all!

Starbase Magellan

Commanding Officer: Excused LOA

Executive Officer: Steve Johnson

Crew Posting Level: 7
Senior Staff Posting Level: 5
Overall Ship Health: 6

Ship Status: Overall things have been moving along slowly with Magellan. Geoff is slowly moving the simm forward, it has started with the introductions. Hopefully though as we move forward, things will get more interesting and there will be more opportunities for crew interaction. Looking forward to seeing what September has for Magellan.


Gamemaster: Geoff Joosten

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

Sim Overview: Sim is going along well. Off to a slow start but part of that is my fault due to some RL issues and a vacation in the middle of the first chapter. The story is about to get interesting for September and October, with a targeted completion date of the end of November depending on posting rates around the holidays.

Spotlight: None

AFComm’s Comments: Both Amber (CO) & Geoff (GM) are excused from reports this month due to LOAs.

Posting here has slowed dramatically over the last week, although I believe the number of LOAs is the main influencing factor in this - At the time of writing only 2 crew members were listed AWOL. Simwise, Geoff has started an initial sim thread and is due back from his LOA tomorrow (04-Sep-2018) to continue it and drive it forward with Amber’s assistance when she returns on the 5th.

I can see from the roster that there are currently vacancies for CSO & SOO, so anyone interested should contact Amber DeSadier (The Magellan’s CO) for info etc.

USS Viking

Commanding Officer: Amanda Mercer

Crew Posting Level: 8
Senior Staff Posting Level: 9
Overall Ship Health: 9

Ship Status: With the children and away team safe oand “Mother” purged from the planet the Viking is enroute to Starbase Halcyon to acquire supplies and to take in much needed crew, and have a moment or two of R&R.

While enroute to Halcyon the crew experienced the sudden reappearance from Kara Nakuto who disappeared from the ship the previous year.


Executive Officer: Jim Watkin

Crew Posting Level: 6
Senior Staff Posting Level: 7
Overall Ship Health: 8

Ship Status: The Viking is currently between sims at the moment, but overall both the roster and the posting levels have vastly improved with (at the time of writing) only 1 player outside the posting limit.

The crew are engaging in side-sims and in preparation for our next sim we have all been asked to message our new GM with details about something that our characters would fear - I have a feeling that dark times lie ahead of us…


Gamemaster: Excused New GM

FComm’s Comments: The Viking isn’t a ship I am very concerned about since taking over the Fleet. Other then keeping an eye on AWOL’s and LOA’s this ship remains consistently active so the only concern is being sure the sim is progressing. Great job guys!
