The Infinite Fleet Report - February 2020

USS Chimera

Commanding Officer: Sarah Hemenway

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

Ship Status: The Chimera is still trying to figure out what happened to make the ship think that it’s almost entirely destroyed. We’ve made some progress this month, getting a runabout up and running to try to be the eyes and ears of the ship while the Chimera’s systems are down or untrustworthy. The Marines have managed to establish a communication system through the ship, which is fantastic since running around with paper notes would certainly get someone their 10,000 steps on a ship this big.

I feel like I’ve been sending a lot of AWOL notices this month and I’m hoping that Gene and I can work together with Luke to get the sim advanced to a spot where people are feeling more involved in it and making progress toward the end. I know it can feel frustrating to be spinning our wheels and I’m hoping we can really improve on this in February.

Spotlight: A big thank you to Steve Johnson for immediately jumping in to fill the Chief Engineer vacancy left by Sara Rastellini’s departure. We also welcomed Katy Darrah as an engineer this month and I’m excited to see what she can contribute to the Chimera. This is an engineering-heavy sim, so I’m expecting a lot from this duo!

I can never express enough thanks for Gene’s awesome leadership both IC and OOC. I’m really lucky to have him as my XO.

Vacancies: The Chimera has openings for JOs in all departments.

Executive Officer: Gene Gibbs

Ship Status: We are transitioning still from trying to find ourselves (quite a quest here and in life!) to figuring out where we are and what is going on. We started that in December and are still at it. I think we’re having some speed bumps along the way on that in the transition in knowing just what to do and for everyone to get onto this new track. I believe it is coming along, though we’re stumbling into it.

Spotlight: Our good Capt is doing very well in keeping on things and leaping into the fray. Good job!!


Gamemaster: Luke Hung

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

Sim Overview: Ship continues to plug along. There has been some pause as the mission objectives have changed and the crew needs to get re-oriented. The confusion of the sudden stop and the crew isolation has been rectified and the now the crew has to figure out why. The relatively inconvenient loss of the chief engineer is problematic as the engines continue to race as if the ship is going somewhere and she isn’t


FComm’s Comments: The Chimera had a great month, batting well past what they are expected with 159 posts for the month of January. It may be cold in most of the world by the wonderful players of the Chimera who have been doing a great job staying active and warm. I want to give some props to Luke Hung, as I have been riveted by his sim lately and can’t wait to see what else he has in store for the crew. Amazing job for everyone all around.

USS Constellation

Commanding Officer: No report submitted

Executive Officer: Katy Darrah

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

Ship Status: I hardly like doing lower than 6 for the above, but it’s necessary this time. In absence of a GM we’re…struggling at best. We’re working to find a new GM but that process is really slow.

Spotlight: Travis Good. He jumped into a festive side sim with a rather hilarious thing about Santa hats, and kept the spirit of the Connie alive

Vacancies: CoS, CE, JOs, at least at the time being

Gamemaster: No report submitted

AFComm’s Comments: This month the USS Constellation produced 41 posts which is within the required posting limits for a ship of its crew size and speed. I am excited to announce along with the command team that Tyra has filled the position of GM. The addition of the new GM coupled with the great backstory’s already being written should increase posting levels for next month. I want to thank Hjortur Ingi, Travis Good, Katy Darrah and Ben Simons for all their hard work creating stories for the crew as the ship searched for a GM. You all are amazing writers. I liked the post about down time. Reading it I felt a crew that was close and enjoying the simple things as a crew does. Each post gave me a sense of who the characters were not in their roles as officers but as individuals.

Starbase Magellan

Commanding Officer: No report submitted

Executive Officer: Steve Johnson

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

Ship Status: Magellan is in a tough spot right now. After the holidays, the ship didn’t bounce back as expected. The simm is slowly moving forward, but with the lack of players, it is hard to keep things moving forward. Hopefully in February we will have some more people join, so the simm will become more interesting again.



Gamemaster: Geoff Joosten

Sim Overview: The Magellan sim isn’t where I would like it to be. It has slowed for some reason and I need to find a way to jump start it.

Spotlight: N/A

FComm’s Comments: Overall for the level of crew Magellean had a decent month. They are somewhat underperforming with only 43 posts for January but I feel this can easily change with some of the much-needed crew positions become filled. Looking forward to seeing what else can be done next coming months to give the Starbase a jolt back to the level they had been producing just a few months ago.

USS Viking

Commanding Officer: No report submitted

Executive Officer: No report submitted

Gamemaster: No report submitted

AFComm’s Comments: The Viking had another slow month with only 43 posts for January. The crew had a lot happening in real life. Unfortunately we had to say a sad good bye to the XO Jim Watkins who stepped down due to real life. You are an amazing RP’er Jim and we wish you the best. So the Viking is currently looking for a GM and XO. If you are interested please contact the CO or FComm to talk about writing on one of the most unique ships in STF. You want creativity and excitement then this is the ship for you.
