September 2016 Fleet Awards
9-Oct-2016     Fleet News

The Monthly Fleet Awards are relatively simple. At the end of each month, the Fleet Commander checks each sim and records the number of players, post and post per player average. This is recorded in a database. Then the top six sims in each Task Force (by PPPA) are put in a list.

Around the sixth or seventh of each month, the monthly CO reports are checked and a list is made of the sims that filed reports and their nominations for writer, player, and post of the month.

The top sims that filed reports, based on the PPPA, receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze Unit of Distinction Award. If the numbers are close, it's a tie.

The Fleet Commander and both TFCOs review all the Writer, Player, and Post nominations for that month. They discuss the nominees and come to an agreement on who should win what award. Each Task Force is considered separately. This is to ensure that there is no bias by one person.

For the Quarterly Awards, the three look at all awards for that quarter, and discuss the performance of each sim in the Fleet, focusing on that quarter, to make sure they pick who they believe to be the best for that award. While the award generally goes to one of the sims or people who have been nominated for a monthly award, there can be exceptions for superior achievement by a CO, XO, or player. Do we get it right all the time? We don't know, but we try our best. Below you can see who won awards for September, and for the third quarter.

By the 10th of each month, generally, the awards are posted.

USS Aurora
3-Oct-2016     Fleet News

A new/old sim has returned to Theta Fleet. The USS Aurora was here a few years ago, but the CO had to close it down when life got too busy. Now he's back and ready to send the Aurora out on new adventures.

Join us in welcoming Captain Westphalen back to the Fleet. :) If you're looking for a new sim with an experienced Captain at the helm, check out the Aurora in Task Force 23!

Most positions available.

USS Yamato
12-Sep-2016     Fleet News

Theta Fleet is also pleased to announce the arrival of the USS Yamato.

The Yamato explores the fringe of known space and the edges of the Klingon and Romulan empires.

Itching to bring out your explorer side? Check out the Yamato in Task Force 23!

Starbase Vanguard
12-Sep-2016     Fleet News

Please join me in welcoming a new sim, Starbase Vanguard, to Theta FLeet!

Remembering the 15th Anniversary
11-Sep-2016     Fleet News

There are some dates that resonate in our collective consciousness, dates that forever changed the world. On December 7, 1941, US President Franklyn Delano Roosevelt said of the attack on Pearl Harbor, that it was "A date which will live in infamy." The same can be said for the events on September 11, 2001.

Today we remember the 15th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and the US Pentagon. Four planes were used in an act of terror that stunned the world -- and united us in our grief, our shock, and our determination to not give in to terrorism.

Take time today to remember 9/11, and to say thank you to the First Responders and the military wherever you live. And work a little harder to help make this world a place where all of us can live together in peace.

August 2016 Fleet Awards
10-Sep-2016     Fleet News

August went by far too quickly. It was hot in North America, and a busy month with the end of summer and, for many, the start of school.

And now, with fall (and spring for those in the southern hemisphere), we're sliding into school and holidays. Starting, of course, with Labor Day in the US and the 60th anniversary of Star Trek.

Speaking of Trek, now is a great time to join a sim! We have quite a few to choose from, and several in other genres. Need a place to start? Have a look at this months' award winners!

50 Years Ago Today
8-Sep-2016     Fleet News

Fifty years ago today, Star Trek premiered on television, and the world changed forever.

It was the height of the space race between Russia and the USA. Neil Armstrong had yet to step foot on the moon, Voyager was not even an idea, and the Robinsons were Lost in Space.

Packaged as Wagon Train to the stars, the series, which only lasted three seasons and 79 episodes, caught the imagination of the world. It would have been cancelled after the second season if not for a write-in campaign spearheaded by Bjo Trimble. Fans were instrumental in creating the first fan-based conventions, and led to Paramount's decision to make Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

And now, fifty years after its debut, Star Trek has five live action series, TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT, plus the animated series, which debuted on this date in 1973. In January, there will be a new series, debuting on CBS All Access. And then there are the movies: the original canon, and now the alternate universe 'reboots'.

Star Trek has inspired authors, scientists, astronauts, inventors, and explorers. There is so much in our world today that we would not have if it weren't for the imagination of Gene Roddenberry.

Star Trek is a platform for change, a mirror on the world to show us our flaws and remind us that we can and should be better. The first interracial kiss, the first black woman as part of a bridge team, and so much more.

All of us, especially here at Theta Fleet, have been influenced by Gene Roddenberry's vision for a better future. Star Trek has enriched and continues to enrich our lives. To all those who keep us believing in a better tomorrow, we say thank you, and in the immortal words of Commander Spock, "Live long and prosper."

July 2016 Fleet Awards
13-Aug-2016     Fleet News

It was a very busy month in Theta Fleet, especially in Task Force 23 where several sims were putting up some impressive numbers. One of the two sims that received a gold UoM had a post count of over 100.

The gold UoM in Area 51 also did very well. The reason is cleaer to those on the sim -- and will be to you when you see the Player of the MOnth for Area 51!

It's a great way to slide into the end of summer and the start of school -- at least in the Northern Hemisphere. Simming is going well -- even with Olympic fever! Now is a great time to check out one of our amazing sims!

Read On for this month's awards!

Second Star
11-Jul-2016     Fleet News

The Second Star is not your typical starship. It was found in an old shipyard and is in the process of being put in working order. As a merchant ship, the crew will need to do missions and raise money to upgrade the ship. Are you looking for a challenge?? Then check out SEcond Star in Task Force 23.

June 2016 Fleet Awards
11-Jul-2016     Fleet News

It's July, and we're half-way through the year. It's hard to believe the year has passed so quickly.

July also marks five years under the current Commander and Deputy Commander of Theta Fleet. We've grown a lot in the past five years. We even have a number of players and COs who have' been around that long. They help make this a really great place to sim!

Click on Read On to see some of the great sims in the fleet (and maybe join one)!

Happy Birthday, North America!
4-Jul-2016     Fleet News

The weekend of July 1-4 was a celebration for both Canada and the United States.

Canada became a nation on July 1, 1867.
The United States declared their independence on July 4, 1776.

For all our North American simmers, we wish you a holiday filled with family and friends. And may you never forget the men and women who sacrificed so much to give you the liberties you enjoy today.
