Theta Fleet: Good people writing great stories

13-Aug-2014     Fleet News

July had some hot tagging and some great posts. The top two sims did very well indeed, and many others had renewed activity. Great job all around!

Nanu Nanu
13-Aug-2014     Fleet News


There is no easy way to say how a person has influenced a generation. Mork from Ork, Professor Keating, Peter Pan, Mrs. Doubtfire, Teddy Roosevelt, the Genie from Aladdin.

Robin Williams stood above most actors and comedians, putting much of his own troubled life into his characters. On August 11th, he lost his battle with severe depression. His talent, and his genius, will be missed.

His death has caused a lot of people to talk about this mental illness and how it affects not just the person who has it, but family and friends as well. If any of you have a problem with depression, talk to someone. Get help. Watch a great comedy and laugh as laughter helps people feel better. I recommend any with Robin Williams.

14-Jul-2014     Fleet News

Friday the Thirteenth
13-Jun-2014     Fleet News

Today is Friday, June 13th, an unlucky day in many cultures (unless you're a horror fan).

Today is also a full moon. The next time a full moon occurs on Friday the 13th is in 2049.

So, celebrate the day. Take our your telescopes -- and your wolfsbane. And stay away from scary places and people named Freddy -- at least for today. lol






May 2014 Fleet Awards
9-Jun-2014     Fleet News

May was an interesting month. It started out well, but then slowed down towards the end. But when you factor in finals and the end of the school year for a lot of people, and the beginning of the summer vacation period, it's great to see how well all the sims did!

Special recognition goes to the 7th Marines who had a burst of activity in May. Ooh Rah!

70th Anniversary of D-Day
6-Jun-2014     Fleet News


On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolph Hitler’s crack troops.

Memorial Day
24-May-2014     Fleet News


Monday, May 26th, is Memorial Day in the US. It's a day to remember those who have gone before. People visit cemeteries and place flowers on the graves of their loved ones.

It is also a day to remember those who died in the service of their country. And give thanks that, because of them, we have the world we live in today.

No matter where you live, your life is richer because someone fought to defend your rights. Remember to say thanks.






Towel Day
24-May-2014     Fleet News

Sunday, May 25th is "Towel Day" in honor of Douglas Addams' Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

On this day, fans wear a towel to show that they are groovy froods. "There's a frood who really knows where his towel is!"

So, if you're a fan, wear a towel. You never know when you might be picked up by a passing spaceship...

And if you don't know the books, you should buy and read them!






April 2014 Fleet Awards
6-May-2014     Fleet News

April was a pretty good month for Theta Fleet. Most of the sims had some activity and those who won awards did a stellar job.

The Admiral's Choice Award goes to the USS London for her solid record as a great sim and for her amazing crew.

May the Fourth Be With You
3-May-2014     Fleet News

Sunday, May 4 is "Star Wars Day."

While it is true we have no Star Wars sims in Theta Fleet, and many people are either Warsies or Trekkies, we feel that, as fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy, we should celebrate are geekiness. And the fact that two such iconic series as Star Wars and Star Trek have had such a monumental impact on our culture today.

Hurray for geeks!

Oh, yes. "And may the fourth be with you!"






The End of an Era
3-May-2014     Fleet News

The USS London is closing its doors on May 5 after a nearly 11-year journey.

Few sims have been around as long as she has, and fewer still can boast her trakc record. She's been a stellar sim for most of those ten years, winning many awards in both Obsidian and Theta Fleets. She and her crew will be missed.

We wish Engie and her crew fair winds and following seas.






Happy Birthday, Shakespeare!
23-Apr-2014     Fleet News

Today, William Shakespeare turns 450. Or would, if he were still alive. (Then again, if he were still alive, he'd be an El-Aurian... lol)

What is to be celebrated is that, even after more than 400 years, he is still among the best writers of all time, if not THE best.

So, today, read one of his magnificent sonnets or one of his plays. Better yet, go see a Shakespeare play. I recommend Hamlet, Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night or Macbeth. There are some marvelous movies with Kenneth Branagh as well: Much Ado About Nothing and Henry V.

Take time to appreciate why we celebrate Shakespeare!






USS Mifune
21-Apr-2014     Fleet News

Theta Fleet is getting animated! Well, technically, it's getting anime.

The USS Mifune, the latest addition to Area 51, is an anime sim. It's loosely based on "Star Trek: The Animated Series" and is set one year after Wolf 359.

Curious? Check it out in Area 51A!






Happy Earth Day!
21-Apr-2014     Fleet News

April 22 is Earth Day. Formerly Arbor Day, it's a day to remember the environment and plant a tree, either in your back yard or in your arboretum.

It's a great excuse to celebrate spring and green up your neighborhood!






Easter and Passover
19-Apr-2014     Fleet News

Every now and then, the Gregorian Calendar and the Jewish Calendar celebrate holidays at the same time.

This is one such time. The Christian world celebrates Easter on Sunday, April 20, and the Jewish faith is celebrating Passover this week.

Theta Fleet wishes all who celebrate these two special events a wonderful week!






March 2014 Fleet Awards
8-Apr-2014     Fleet News

March was a great month. Activity picked up, sims had some great story lines, and players had fun. What more could a fleet ask?

NaPoWriMo
3-Apr-2014     Fleet News

April is National Poetry Writing Month.

This month, write a poem, even if it’s just for yourself.

Especially take time to read a good poem. Some of the most beautiful poetry was written in the 16th -18th Centuries. Try John Dunne, William Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss. The choice is yours!






April 1, 2014 Announcement (April Fool's)
1-Apr-2014     Fleet News

Due to technical difficulties, the IFS (program we use for the Theta Fleet site) is no longer allowing us to post news items.

Therefore, effective immediately, we will no longer be using this site for news and announcements.

Look for our new BBS coming soon! (We'll send a smoke signal when it's ready.)

(Please note the date. We really aren't moving -- although Todd informed us that he still has the software and can put up a BBS... Happy April Fool's!)






Happy Mother's Day, UK!
31-Mar-2014     Fleet News

Sunday, March 30, the United Kingdom celebrated Mother's Day.
Theta Fleet wishes all the mothers, would-be mothers and sim mothers a happy Mother's Day!




February 2014 Fleet Awards
31-Mar-2014     Fleet News

Delayed due to technical difficulties, here are the February awards. Thanks to Todd for getting the IFS back to normal. :)

Egon, you'll be missed
24-Feb-2014     Fleet News


Harold Ramis, co-author of a number of classic movies, including Ghostbusters, Caddyshack and Groundhog Day passed away today at the age of 69.

One of his best -- and most famous -- roles was playing Egon Spengler in the 1984 movie, Ghostbusters,/p>

His comic genius will be sorely missed.






January 2014 Fleet Awards
18-Feb-2014     Fleet News

January was a slow month -- not surprising as everyone was recovering from the holidays or going back to school. Some sims did very well and some gained new players.

So far, February is picking up speed. It's great to see people posting and having fun writing!

I Have A Dream...
20-Jan-2014     Fleet News

Today the United States celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It's a day to remember Dr. King and his role in the Civil Rights movement.

His "I have a dream" speech is a solid basis for Roddenberry's dream of the future:
"I have a dream that my … children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

His dream of equality and freedom for all still resonates today and gives us a promise of a brighter future.
