Since her last recognition on May 10th, Shelley has continued to demonstrate her own above-average activity level, shown especially through her performance in our Star Trek Online fleet, with a total of 43 Combat Action Ribbons and 10 Strategic Action Ribbons earned for both solo and group participation in Task Force Operations. During this time, she has also continued to be a thoughtful, active leader in Task Force 93, personally nominating dozens of awards and promotions, as well as grooming the next generation of task force staff. For her gaming achievements and service as a leader, I am pleased to nominate Shelley for a second Meritorious Service Cross.

Justification

Shelley has consistently been one of the most active members in the fleet since the new model of activity-based awards was introduced in April. In the past few months, she has accumulated an astonishing 41 Legions of Honor and 55 Service Ribbons, coupled with placing in 4 competitions. To put her Service Ribbons into perspective, that’s 13,750 words written, which is impressive by any standard. This sustained level of high activity in either fiction writing or writing on Hawkeye Island, Guardian Station, and Delta-Bravo would be impressive on their own, but given that she’s so active in these two different areas, she is all the more worthy of recognition for being a member who takes advantage of so many different opportunities to participate: fiction writing, game writing, and competitions. To recognize this high level of activity, Shelly is deserving of the Meritorious Service Cross.
