Task Force 72 | September Report

A little earlier for the report this month. My apologies for being away for the last bit of the month, but I see that my lovely TFXO kept you all running smooth. I only have one note left on my chair, it reads: “I am happy to announce the promotion of myself to Vice Admiral and also the promotion of my fearless, mouthy XO, Paul to the rank of Commodore. Congratulations!”

I don’t have that power… that’s not even my hand writing? Well, with the mystery of who played this joke up in the air, lets get into the report for September. 

Overall we are net positive for the month, with almost all sims seeing increases in their posting numbers for September. In that you all deserve a round of applause. We did lose the Apollo this month, due to a long stretch of inactivity, and for that we are sad to see her and her crew go. We wish them luck in the future. 

I am hoping to be far more available this month (I am off this week so if you want a Boss Joint Post, now is the week to ask for it), and am excited to see what crews do for the Halloween episodes, if you do. Now, on to the numbers and bits. 

Arrivals and Departures

The decision was made to shut down the USS Apollo, as the sim was not active for several months. We wish her and her crew luck in the future.

Promotions

No promotions this month. 

Unit of Merit

This month I want to congratulate one of the sims that are new to Team72. With consistent growth and development of a fun story, as well as a sim that writes in a way that is foreign to many of us in this day-and-age. This is all to say, this month the Unit of Merit is going to the USS Hiroshima, a play-by-email sim and the only other Vesta-class in the fleet. So, give her Captain and her crew a round of applause!

Conclusion

I leave you all with a request to keep doing what you’re going, it’s going great! I look forward to seeing what you all do for October, and if anyone has a great Halloween post, send them to me, I want to read them. 

Should you have questions or concerns, you may reach me via email at [email protected], or should you need Captain Hawkins, he can be reached via [email protected] Thank you all, and safe simming.
