Welcome to CAPT Nathaniel “Nate” Jackson, TFXO; FRM Line-of-Effort Update

Fellow Commanders and crew of TF93,

I am directing CAPT Ramsey to solely focus his efforts on the Gorn Theater. Managing crisis operations in the Cestus and Canterra sectors is priority one for this TF. To that end, I have appointed CAPT Nathaniel “Nate” Jackson as our new Task Force Executive Officer (TFXO). Welcome to the team, Nate!

I have also assigned the Free Romulan Movement (FRM) Line-of-Effort to CAPT Jackson, effective immediately.

Additionally, we have stood up an official outlet to receive further notice of HQ TF93 operations:

My staff and I will be re-examining our lines-of-effort and will give the latest update during our Operations & Intelligence Brief (O&I) this month.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Keep up the good work!

 

Regards,

Yewande Banda, RADM, SF
Commanding Officer, Task Force 93

OOC:
Congratulations to Leam-Mark, who commands the USS Excalibur, on his appointment to TFXO! You can reach him at Leam-Mark#1673 on Discord.

The TF Staff decided to make PFY an official sim so you can read about the IC happenings of our headquarters. We will be posting in the TF93 Forum though so you don’t have to check another site.

Change In Command

In today’s Starfleet, shakeups are nothing new. Such is the case for the USS Ark Royal. Commander Scott Parker has been transferred to a new assignment. But the Ark Royal will not be returning to the mothballs. Command has been transferred to Commander Charles McFadden effective immediately.

Welcome to the center chair, Commander!

Attention to Orders

Happy weekend, Task Force 72.

I find myself privileged on this cold December morning to recognize a particular individual within Task Force 72.

In recognition of completing the Academy, and achieving active status with his sim, it is my pleasure to promote Lieutenant Commander Remas McDonald of the USS Traveller to the rank of Commander, with all rights and privileges therein.

Congratulations, Commander!

Change of Guards

Commandant Vice Admiral Anin

Good day,

The past year has been enormous in many ways, we have seen so many things change and flourish among our mids. Changes like this Task Force so drastic right in front of my eyes, we managed to continue development of a more in-depth story. We manage to bring the stories that were written by our writing groups to the front and show the community what beautiful stories they created. In my own experience, I saw a chaotic Task Force come together as one front, one band of brothers and most importantly a great family that supports each other with creating new stories. I have never been so proud of what you all have accomplished. Thank you so much…

Some things never last I guess, but respectfully change might also be good. Therefore I am sad to announce that Commodore Hawkes and Commander Wolff have stepped down from their Task Force Staff duties. Though I will miss my right hand and intelligence officer, I am glad and even proud to see them stay with us as Captains of their Sims. For their dedicate services towards the Task Force and beyond, I am honored to give them both the Bronze Star. You will notice it as part of your BFMS account already, again thank you both for what you have done for the Task Force and I look forward, as always, towards the stories of the Southern Cross and Delphi!

But with both Hawkes and Wolff stepping down from their duties, it means I have a few vacant positions on my list. I send the notice towards my Task Force for anyone to step up and the call was answered in great numbers! I thank you for your application and while you might not see your name now, don’t be sad as the Task Force always will need your input. But it is my honor to announce the following members to step up as part of the Task Force Staff.

  • Beeman – Task Force Executive Officer of Task Force 93
  • Reius – Task Group Commanding Officer of Task Group Bastet in TF93

Please help me to welcome those wonderful people towards their new respective duties! Thank you all again for creating such a wonderful Task Force 🙂

Announcement of Task Group Commanding Officers

Good day all,

It is with great pleasure and honor to present to you the new Task Group Commanding Officers within Task Force 93. This project is under my own lead and it is to see if we can reintegrate the TGCO position back into our ranks. Task Force 93 has been going strong since we pass the barrier of 10 sims. I am proud of this Task Force and every member within it. With the TGCO integration, it is the next step up to create new leaders of the future and with that said, I present the following people:

  • Task Group Bastet will be under command of Commander Leonore Wolff
  • Task Group Themis will be under command of Captain Anthony Richardson.

Currently, I have Commodore Hawkes function as both TFXO/TGCO over Forseti. I might open the position of TGCO in Forseti in the future, but it all depends on how the current TGCOs will be doing as part of the Task Force Senior Staff. Welcome and congratulations on your new assignment!

This will also mean that the Task Groups get some shuffling, the new setup:

Themis
USS Excalibur
DS14
Outpost Curtiss
USS Venture
USS Ascension
Bastet
SFI Delphi
USS Tornado
SFM Revenant
USS Kumari
USS Ajax
Forseti
USS Southern Cross
Palais de la Concorde
USS Sirona
USS Odyssey
USS Hawaii

Community Relations Officer Appointed

On behalf of the Bravo Fleet Admiralty, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Fallon to the position of Fleet Community Relations Officer.

Fallon, a long time member of the Bravo Fleet community, has served as Adjutant to the Community Relations Office sine May while we worked to redefine the role to better serve the community. In the coming weeks and months, the Community Relations Office will be publishing new player resources and a user guide for BFMS, as well as managing several upcoming events and improving engagement through social media and other channels.

Please join us in congratulating Fallon on his new role!

By My Furry Graces

Greetings One and All,

Due to the continued effort and productivity, ensuring that members of the simm are engaged and creative in the content that is made for not just others on the simm to write but also outsiders I would like to do a first since assuming the role as Teh Kitteh Overlord of Task Force 72.

On this day I promote Commander Temple of the Pandora to the rank of CAPTAIN.

I hope to see the Pandora continue on its ventures and granting more people the opportunity to read and enjoy the content that he and his crew create.
Congratulations!

The time for recognition is upon us!

Good day members of Bravo Fleet,

This has been coming quite some time, but time in my personal life has prevented me from doing so and so my deepest apology for this delay.
Without further delay I want to recognize some people of Task Force 93 for their hard work with us and this is my way of thanking them and showing the fleet how awesome they are!

Captain Richard Sharpe please step forward:

Medal of Collaboration: While the DS14 sim is getting the SoTM award due their strong bound together in a time of crisis when the server went down. It was in recognition of Joan contribution and keeping morale and spirit up that kept the DS14 sim together. Even when having lost a month of valuable information, she kept the crew motivated to continue. I, therefore, award you the Medal of Collaboration and salute you!

Captain Wyatt Hickerson please step forward:

For taking an active part in both the development of the simulation story and active integrating the story of TF93 SoK story line. Also the contribution of expanding and detailing the SoK story more. Confusedfire is therefore recognized for the contribution of his work towards the Task Force 93 cannon. I, therefore, award you the Medal of Collaboration and salute you!

Lieutenant Commander Leonora Wollf please step forward:

Kos has contributed towards the Task Force as a player towards the content of the Intel page that was created to simplify the story interaction and transition towards other Commanding Officers. Has worked greatly towards the contribution of the story arc in regards to SoK and the Gorn Invasion discussion. I, therefore, award you the Medal of Achievement and …not yet salute you. Your pips are wrong Wollf, that should be changed at once! For achievement of getting your team on Delphi active are promoted to the full rank of Commander! Now I salute you, Commander.

Commander BataiDhej please step forward:
You have seen a lot and have had some difficult times in regards of real life and in your simming, but here you stand and still strong and going with your ship. , therefore, promote you towards the full rank of Captain and salute you, Captain!

Captain Makayla Perin please step forward:

From the time that I joined TF93 till now, I have not seen a stronger leader as Kaichi. She has taken the Captain role from Kai and since that point never really left the chair of Captain. She has created a unique story line that surprising was taken up by the Task Force Staff as part of the story for the Task Force. Kaichi created a story arc that not only contributed towards her own sim in great parts and length but also towards the Task Force as a whole. Her value opinion on the various discussion is taken in highly and do her service, her contribution to various fields (TF and Sim) she earns this award. I, therefore, award you the Gene Roddenberry Commendation of Excellent and salute you!

Commander Jack Lashmore & Captain David Hawkes please step forward:

Being a TFXO is on various parts difficult, every TFCO has their own way of teaching his pupil in becoming a good leader. But in my professional opinion is that Sirirus39 or also known as Hawkes in TF93, has taken that extra bar and not on a volunteer basis. I as TFCO am fighting my illness and while doing so I have to rely heavily on my right hand. Without a doubt has Hawkes proven to take this task seriously, has never refused any order or request I have given and yes we had our healthy doses of discussions or disagreements, but in the end, Hawkes did what was asked of him.

He has helped in getting the Task Force canon back on track, has discussed the options, created solutions and helped in thinking on various points of improving the Task Force. Has always helped the players within TF93 if it was either a CO or a player. And stepped in for me when I had to step back due to my health. I, therefore, award him the Silver Star Citation and promote Lashmore towards full Captain and Hawkes to Commodore!

Without a doubt is in my fair opinion Task Force 93 a strong Task Force with gifted writers that make my days as Task Force Commanding Officer proud to be the leader off. Without any player of the TF, I would not be here and I salute everyone and bow to you all for being part of this Task Force and your simulations. Please continue to make stories and let the world see how amazing all are.

Congratulations Are In Order

One of the fun things I get to do as a TFCO (and sim CO) is rewarding players that work hard, are active in their sim and the community, and have a respectful and friendly demeanor toward his fellow simmers. We have several people in TF99 that have those qualities, and that’s one reason I love this TF so much.

That said, one member of TF99 has gone above and beyond for years now. His sim in TF99 has been active for over four years, which is saying something for a sim that’s not set in the popular post-nemesis timeline. It’s my pleasure to promote the Commanding Officer of the NX Endeavor, Edward Pearson, better known to everyone as CaptainPorthos to the rank of Commodore!

Keep up the great work CaptainPorthos and everyone in TF99!
