Justification

Andrew aka Trumpetmaster29 has been around Bravo Fleet in its most recent form, and Task Force 86, for much longer than I have. During that time he has been consistently upbeat and willing to help out with Task Force duties. He has had some great ideas for new competitions and been a steady hand overseeing Task Group 64. Active in the wider community too, he has been a great ambassador for TF86 out and about around the fleet. In addition to all of this, he is an active member of the fleet. Since being awarded a Meritorious Service Cross on August 29, 2020, he has accumulated 7 Duty Ribbons, 8 Service Ribbons, and 1 Strategic Action Ribbon! He has also been awarded 4 Action Medals with Star Clusters and 4 Action Medals with Galaxy Clusters. An impressive effort!

Thank you, Andrew, and I’m looking forward to working with you for the foreseeable!

~ Captain Felrak Vordenna, Task Force 86 Commanding Officer

Justification

During the past four months, TrumpetMaster29 has been one of the most active members in the fleet, earning an impressive 19 Service Ribbons for his fiction on Relay Station Bravo exploring the history of one of his characters, 42 Strategic Action Ribbons for his diligent playing of Star Trek Online, and 5 Legions of Honor for his posts on the USS Amandora game on the Holodeck. This sustained level of activity is noteworthy and is deserving of recognition by way of the Meritorious Service Cross. It is worth noting that TrumpetMaster is on track to be the first (or certainly one of the first) members who has gone from Cadet through all of the Junior Officer ranks in the new system, serving as an example to new members and as a very patient guinea pig for us as we’ve navigated this new activity reporting and promotion system together, as he’s been an active participant in nearly every single one of the fleet’s systems from the academy to fiction to writing on games to Star Trek Online.
