Task Force 72 Report | August 2023

It’s been a bit since our last report in, and I wanted to give a quick State of Task Force 72. 

First, an apology. August was an incredibly difficult month of me and my personal life. If I missed you in some way, I apologize for that. 

For the Fleet, it looks like we have had a slow couple of months, with things expected to slowly creep back into normalcy. It seems some sims dipped over October, and from the September numbers it looks like they might already be bouncing back, which is great to see! If any of you need help, let me know. 

Arrivals, Changes and Departures

It’s with a heavy heart we note the departure of the Gladiator. We wish them luck.

There are some awards I need to sort through and get written up. I’ll get those to you all in a separate post shortly, I promise. 

Silver Star – Obsidian Command

Captain Corvus DeHavilland

When it comes to group level awards, it is rare that I will receive a recommendation for award from anyone but the CO. This recommendation instead comes from the Executive Officer. 

From the XO:
Sep was already a talented writer by the time we were introduced.  His writing reflects years of personal development and honed craft. He loves his characters, not in such a way as to make them too precious to tell their stories, but in such a way as to do them the honor of telling their stories, for better or for worse, but always for the best effect to the reader. He’s true to his characters, true to himself, and so his work can only ring true to anyone who follows along.

His primary character on the station is DeHavilland, and over the course of the past three missions since opening the sim, she’s been tested and tried, and her flaws are surfacing as she attempts to live up to her first command under the pressure of so many expectations in her service to Starfleet, and challenges in her personal life. But the reader can anticipate that these tests— great and small, internal and external— will produce character and DeHavilland will persist.

For those of you who are unaware, Captain DeHavilland is played by our own Admiral Sepandiyar. I have written with him for nearly a decade at this point, and would say that I wouldn’t have to pause to question if he was a skilled writer. But still, when it is called out, I go digging. And I have found, as is always the case, a treasure trove of short stories that I could read for hours on end. This is a very much deserved award. Cheers to you Sep! 


That’s all for this month. See you next month.
