USS Elysium – July 2021


Sim Updates

We won UoM for the month of June! I am so happy to see my crew rewarded by the fleet, they work so hard and write such great stories.
We moved to TF29, thus I have updated our front page to reflect this. There are changes coming to the game to reflect our new reality within TF29. We have spent a wonderful 9 months in TF 47 and wish them all the best as they grow and change with the changes within the fleet.

Let's just hope we don't have our own Cybil being born (the older generation should pick up on the Sally Field nod. Lol) Crpl David Tonelly

    Commander Arrianna Salannis an Vantar is awarded the Non Player Character Award - Fantastic, soul searing writing by this talented writer first as the proud Arri then as the dutiful slave Flossie. Then writer made the transformation without a misstep. You feel her defiance as Arri and her obedience as Flossie. Skillful and imaginative writing at it's best. Jeff aka Envoy Gary Taylor

    Commander Arrianna Salannis an Vantar is awarded the Vulcan Science Award -Her creative story enhancements in the area of science always impress and amaze me. They are well thought out and would make any Vulcan proud as they are logical as well. Jeff aka Envoy Gary Taylor.

    Corporal David Tonelly is awarded Non Player Character Award - Corporal Tonelly Created a masterful villian in Kyle Cragen. One that knew my character; Arrianna Salannis an Vantar intimately. I couldn't have asked for anything better than to have such a villian that was equal in every way with Arrianna, and I can't wait to see what their final standoff will be like. His portrayal of Kyle Cragen is mesmerizing! As we get to see up close and personal just how evil and dispicable Cragen is as he abuses Josie. Masterful writing! Jeff aka Envoy Gary Taylor
