Heather Kowal's Rank Record

  • Promoted to Lieutenant Commander

    • Stephen has done an extraordinary amount of work behind the scenes for TF 86. His willingness to help grow the lore of the Task Force has been recognized by both Wooz and I. Even with the commitments of real-life Stephen has passed Discord level 7, which is past his requirement for Lieutenant Commander. Stephen has created seven unique characters as long as yet another well-written and developed character that was a pleasure to read like all the rest.

      Stephen has also joined as a Staff Assistant of RPGs, which shows not only his love to write but his drive to continue being a shining beacon in the fleet. This love for writing can also be seen by the 19 service ribbons he has received from his excellent writing. The stories that Stephen writes are well thought out and a pleasure to read. It is apparent, the pride he puts in his writing and the obvious want to help others in their writing by helping with RPGs in the Fleet.

      I am excited to see what else Stephen is going to do in the Fleet and believe he will continue to be a driving force for others to see.For these reasons, it is my pleasure to recommend Stephen be promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.

  • Promoted to Lieutenant

    • Since his last promotion in June, Stephen has once again shown himself to be a steady presence in TF86. His activity on Discord has put him over the level 6 requirement for promotion to Lieutenant. He also has completed a set of three characters with which to tell his tales. His main character, Lieutenant Heather Kowal, has a very nicely written bio which promises to be the basis of many interesting stories to come! Speaking of stories, Stephen’s fiction “The Adventures of Tyler Bardot” over on Relay Station Bravo has been a welcome addition to our rapidly evolving Task Force tapestry of lore and fiction.

      Stephen has also proven himself on the competition front. His “Face-Palm Challenge” was a fun event, which I greatly enjoyed entering myself. Through organising and judging this, Stephen has shown that he has what it takes to stoke more activity throughout the whole fleet. As such, I consider him an extremely valuable Task Force asset.

      It has been great to bounce lore idea off Stephen every now and then, and he always has positive input for how Starbase 86 and its surrounding theatre of operations might develop. Please keep this up, and I look forward to seeing your future ideas and contributions!

  • Promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade

    • Stephen continues to be a great presence in TF86 and has shown himself to be more than willing to get involved around the fleet. He is well known around Discord and it’s been particularly great to have him around recently in the 86 lounge. He’s managed to reach level 6 so far, which evidences his consistent involvement.

      Where Stephen has particularly excelled is his enthusiasm for all things competition-y! Since his last promotion on 21 March, 2021, he has entered five competitions. Getting stuck in like this is really valuable for generating fleet activity and cohesion, so I’m extremely pleased to give Stephen the credit he deserves for it.

      Last, but not least, Stephen has also stepped up to become a staff member on the Bravo Fleet Appeals Panel. This is a very important post, and we hope that his time in the role is mercifully uneventful. It represents a willingness to assist with the day to day operations of the fleet that is the cherry on top of Stephen’s well deserved promotion to Lieutenant (Junior Grade).

      Superlative effort, Stephen, and thanks for all your contributions so far.
