Task Force 29 Report – July 2020

Well another month is gone, and that brings us another month closer to Christmas and the end of this crazy year. However, as the year progresses so does the wonderful stories being cooked up here in Task Force 29 by the 29ers. As the stories continue and the sims continue to recruit, we are always on the lookout for new sim concepts and new Commanding Officers. That is my main goal, to recruit. Task Force 29 is a unique simming hub, we a lot of niche and specialty sims so please have a look at what we have to offer. Join a sim or dare I say take the leap into time itself and take a command, but we will have more on that later in the report. That is enough of my blather. So without any gilding the lily and no further ado I give you the state of 29…

Task Force Update

This month was another month of building and storytelling here in 29. I am uniquely impressed by the stories that come out of the sims in this Task Force and look forward to reading them every month, more to see what the characters are doing next than to check on their status.

I would like to congratulate Captain Sorcha O’Neill on gathering enough crew on their Starfleet Academy sim to be officially active. However, they are still looking for some great writers. Every character or Cadet can carve their own story through the courses that they take. Have a look at Starfleet Academy and see if you have what it takes to graduate.

The second update is a sad one. We are saddened to announce that the USS Defiant in 29-C is putting into spacedock for the last time. The sim will be unfortunately shutting down.

The last bit for this section of the report is a question to you all. I am curious to see how the rest of the fleet would feel about alien Sims. I am talking about Sims that take place aboard a Klingon, Romulan, or Cardassian ship etc.… This is something that I would love to see in 29. I think not only would it provide a unique writing experience, but also it could be something that connects to the main fleet storyline, a way for 29 to link to the rest of the fleet. If this is something that interests you or you would like to express your thoughts on the subject please contact me at [email protected] or message me on Discord.

The recruitment drive within the Task Force continues. If you are interested in becoming a CO for an “outside the box” sim then TF 29 is the place for you.

Task Force Stats

Total Simms: 12

Ships with CO’s: 6

Ships with Pending CO’s: 0

Open Commands: 6

If you are interested in a command within Task Group 29 please contact me at [email protected] or on Discord (Hadir Prenar #1445), I would be happy to discuss your sim concept and how we can fit it into the Task Group at large.

What if you could travel to parallel worlds or other timelines? The same year, the same Federation, only different dimensions. A galaxy where the Klingons have taken over the Federation… or where your dreams of making peace with the Romulans… or where Vulcan was a maximum-security prison. There is a gateway, its Task Force 29. Now the question is do you have what it takes to step through.

Unit Of Merit

For the month of July I am not awarding anyone the Unit of Merit. With all of the great sims in the Task Force it is hard to chose one for the award. However, I would like to congratulate the entire Task Force on adopting a new metric and hitting the ground running. Keep up the great work, and know that you all have one enraptured reader here.

In Closing

“Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.” As always I would like to remind all of the COs out there that they can have a second command, if that command is in Task Force 29. Just something to think about. As to the rest of the fleet I encourage you to take a look at the sims in this Task Force an join a sim that will give you something completely different. For now just keep a look at the time and crack on…

 

Until Next Month

Let us keep searching because I am sure that there is coffee in that nebula

and

May Janeway watch over us and protect us all…

Until Then

Steady As She Goes
