Edict... I think it's number 38

With Mike's resignation as Governor of Oed due to his impending iLOA, I'm hereby appointing Deanne Ashton as Governor, as well as granting her the appropriate permission she needs to effectively CO / GM the place, which has the backing of the GMDir as per OGRE.

Let the mayhem begin! :-)

Edict 55

Robert Gulley is hereby appointed as Governor of Oed V. He doesn't need promoting since Oed only counts towards an XO position.

Congratulations Robert!

Cramer Edict #11

With the departure of Robert Gulley a replacement was needed for Oed V. It has been decided that the only man foolis... er... I mean worthy of running this Alternate RPG in Robert's place is none other than the once again employeed Captain Bunny.

Symon Silvester rejoined STF after a short break and has shown he still has the dedication and drive to be an outstanding Commanding Officer. Congrats Sy and remember Oed V is not a vacation resort.

It then got a new charter...

Then, by the only man ... err ... tribble game enough to attempt to fill the bunny's shoes ...

Lerner Edict #11:

Posted by Fleet Admiral Daniel Lerner (President)

"Life is like a grapefruit... it's sort of orangey-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It's got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have half a one for breakfast."

As you all know, Symon Silvester recently stepped down as Governor of Oed V. After serving in that position for over three and a half years, to many of us, Sy and Oed V seemed to go hand-in-hand. Sy was appointed as Governor after one of his previous breaks from STF, and we can only hope that he will choose to come back in the future and give us a taste of his amazing creativity and leadership in another STF position. As I mentioned once before in this club, Sy's departure has left very large (yet strangely bunny-shaped) boots to fill...

...which may be just the right size for a tribble to fit in. Russell Watt is one of our most creative role-players in the club, and an important leader in and out of the administration. He has served as the CO of two seperate ships, and has served in three different cabinet positions (not including his current MAC position and informal administrator of the Awards). Russ was formerly mentored by Sy, and is now a mentor to many of our newer members.

Russ has always been a strong crew member on any ship he has been part of, and has been awarded as STF's most creative poster. Even if that has included Russ as an engineering cadet using a wooden club to smash a malfunctioning ship computer. (I told you I would always remind everyone about that! )

Russ has continued to be a major contributer, administrator, and leader of Oed V, and therefore, based on the recommendation of (Assistant) Fleet Six Command, Russell Watt is hereby appointed as Governor of Oed V.

Oh, and Russell Watt is also promoted to Fleet Captain.

Congratulations, Russ!

-Daniel Lerner

Just like that, the RL monster forced a turn of the tide, and the Bunny returned to lead...

Herr Edict #29:

Edict #29 - Stardate 10072.5

"I wish the real world would just stop hassling me"

We have lost yet another member to that which we call "real life". Russell Watt is a respected member who will be greatly missed until he can

return. Many positions were left vacant by his departure, and I am pleased to quickly fill one of them. Upon the recommendation of the Fleet

Commander, Fleet 6, I hereby reassign Symon Silvester as Governor, Oed V. Sy is already an esteemed Admiral of some sorts, rears or vices, I

can never get those straight, so he obviously doesn't need promoting.

Sy has done an excellent job with Oed in the past, and I have full faith that he will continue to support and nourish the planet's reputation as the

most awesome Alt RPG.

Jen (President)

Just when you thought the Bunny/Tribble swap Governor Game was over!...

Wonderly Edict #44:

Edict #44 - Stardate 11102.8

Based on the recommendation of the Commander, Fleet 6, Russell Watt is hereby appointed Governor of

Oed V, Fleet 6.

Congrats Russ!

STF President

Then the RL Monster returned to claim the tribble. Dark black clouds swirled in the Skies of STF as the Seamonkey took over, ending the Tribble/Bunny swap...

Bayes Edict #14:

Edict #14

“I'm picking up a power signature near the equator. There's a ship down there.”

“Try to hail them.”

“No response.”

“Maybe they wanna be left alone. A single ship on a dark planet? Maybe they're on their honeymoon.”

Due to the resignation of the CO of Oed V, a new Governor is needed for one of our most unique RP environments.

We are fortunate to have someone very passionate about Oed’s future to take over the reigns. With the recommendation of both FComm and AFComm, Fleet 6, I hereby appoint Kendra Kerr as Governor.

Good luck Kendra!
