Happy July, Bravo Fleet! We’re just six days in and it’s already been an exciting month. In case you missed it, Bravo Fleet has been nominated for the 2017 Squiddie Awards, along with our very own JonM (Admiral Michael Drake) and Starbase 400. The official winners will be announced soon, and we hope to bring that announcement to you all quickly.
Before I announce our award recipients (there are over 25 today), I must issue an apology to all of Bravo Fleet. This announcement will be covering awards that were issued as far back as May. Due to so much being announced with the May Monthly Awards last month, the Hall of Honour elected to release the sheer amount of awards separately.
And then, Real Life took its toll.
We regret not announcing these awards sooner. Moving forward, we will issue weekly Award Announcements. If we have one award or a hundred, it will not stop us from announcing every week. Hopefully, we’ll be able to move these awards through much more quickly. Now, onto the awards!

Kaichi created a story arc that not only contributed towards her own sim in great parts and length but also towards the Task Force as a whole. Her value opinion on the various discussion is taken in highly and do her service, her contribution to various fields (TF and Sim) she earns this award.
ADM Deela T’Lar, Starbase 400
Mel has been on SB400 as one character or another since 1998. She’s been the sim’s XO for over five years. As a player, her posts are very well written and add to the plot well. She helps the CO keep the episodes on track as well as assisting with a variety of OOC tasks. She’s also been a great recruiter for the sim bringing in well over ten players over the years. Anytime the CO needs time away, Mel will keep SB400 active and the players inline.
FADM Mike K’Wor Bremer, Starbase 400
Mike Bremer has been active as the CO of the SB400 sim since 1997. He keeps the sim on track, updates, the sites, recruits, all the things a typical CO should do. However, it goes deeper than that. He’s not just ‘there’, he’s active and truly loves this sim and his dedication is unquestioned. He puts so much time into SB400, keeping things updated, adding new, making changes and improvements. The SB400 site is one of a kind and has won countless awards. The SB400 sim is also a multi-award winner receiving two Simming Prize Awards, several from Bravo Fleet, and others. Mike’s writing it also superb. Not only does he write for all FADM Bremer and VADM K’Temoc but he also write for several PNPCs and brings them all to life.
Silver Star Citation
CAPT Jack Lashmore, USS Southern Cross
He has helped in getting the Task Force canon back on track, has discussed the options, created solutions and helped in thinking on various points of improving the Task Force. Has always helped the players within TF93 if it was either a CO or a player, and stepped in for the TFXO when he had to step back due to health reasons.
