Hi all,

It gives me great pleasure to announce the following awards for a member of the Vindex family

Lieutenant Kazyah Linn: Matthew is an excellent writer who I have really enjoyed writing with for well over a year now. I feel he is more than deserving of this award in recognition of his contributions to the Vindex over the past 14 months

Dedication Citation - 1 Year

Captain Claudia Ainscow
Commander Akiva ben-Avram
Major Storr Garlake

The latter is a Bravo Fleet specific award and has been added to your profiles on the Bravo Fleet Management System

If you want to nominate one of your fellow crewmates for an award please don't hesitate to do so via the "Award Nominations" option in the left hand menu of your control panel. Will it be you next time?

Thanks,
James


» The Vindex's One Year Anniversary

Posted on Wed May 31st, 2017 @ 4:05pm by Captain Claudia Ainscow in Sim Announcement

Hi everyone,

Today (May 31st) marks the first anniversary of the USS Vindex. Firstly I'd like to thank you all for all your hard work over the past year in which as a crew we've submitted 412 mission posts at the time of writing and are currently on our seventh mission together having started our second season a couple of weeks ago

A special mention from me goes to our Executive Officer (Nathan), Chief Engineering Officer (John), Chief Intelligence Officer (Matthew) and Marine Commanding Officer (Tyler) who have all been with the sim since the beginning. All four of you will be receiving a Silver Merit award shortly to recognise your time on the sim

However without all of you I wouldn't have been able to achieve my dream of running my own sim again and for that I thank you. It's been an honour and a privilege to lead this sim and I hope to do so for a long time to come

Here's to another twelve months - and hopefully many more

Thanks to you all once again

Best wishes,
James

Season 1 saw us write no less than 393 mission posts over six missions - so well done guys. I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions

Season 2 is now launched with the mission "Secrets" - the mission notes have been updated with more to come soon

Let's make it another great season!
