January & February 2018 Command News

Since not everyone in the club tends to follow what goes on in Command, I thought I should start posting some "news" under our "Latest News". (Crazy, I know...)

Here's what you may have missed:

In January, the CO of the SS Bonaventure - STF's Enterprise-era ship - stepped down. Therefore, on January 30th, the Bonnie's XO, Melissa "There Was A Commander Rank?" Aragaon, was promoted to Captain and appointed as the new CO (https://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/862706). On February 8th, Melissa joined the STF Zoo, with her Discord "Pendragon" persona being upgraded to "Komodo Dragon".

On February 3, Adam "One More Step To Ruling STF" W. stepped down on FComm, Pioneer Fleet to focus on his new role as Assistant Personnel Director.

The President, in a complete lack of originality, decided the new FComm should also have just a single initial in their name, and appointed D "The D Stands For Diabolical Koala" Grisham as the new FComm of Pioneer Fleet (https://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/863202).

In February, after seventeen years as CO of the USS Aztec, Kenson "Please Call Me By My Character Name, Kenson" Koh stepped down. As the longest continuous serving CO in STF history, this sparked an unusual burst of activing from our President on February 22nd (https://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/865529).

First, now that he doesn't have to worry about commanding a ship anymore, Kenson was promoted to Rear Admiral!

Second, the USS Aztec was replaced with the Memorial-class, USS Memorial.

Third, Kirt "I Can Even Take On a Gorn In Combat" Gartner was promoted to Captain and appointed as the Memorial's first CO. The Dolphin has heard rumours that his STF Zoo membership application is currently being processed. (Is it "Duck-Billed Platypus"? Please be "Duck-Billed Platypus"!)

Unfotunately, on February 23rd, outside circumstances forced Philip Graham to resign his positions in STF. That meant that Steven "Tadpoles Rule the Galaxy" Sigle and David "Replacing Foremost Fleet COs Since 2018" Shotton stepped in as acting CO and XO of the USS Manhattan.

Steven and David's Reign of Terror lasted a full one hundred and seventy minutes before Jeremy "Yes He Is On Discord" DeSpain was appointed as the Manhattan's new CO (https://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/865698).

In other Command news, the Marketing and Advertising Coordinator position still remains vacant. If you are interested, please read this post: https://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/861422.

That's it for now. Hope everyone enjoyed this update.
