As you can see from my last post (http://ufplanets.com/ufp/simm/august.php/sim/viewpost/14), the second "surprise" (first being that we get to visit Earth) is a new ship. I've been cooking this up for more than a month and I am glad to announce it officially.
I welcome discussion, so head over to the forums if you have points or questions: http://ufplanets.com/showthread.php?39005-Introducing-the-new-USS-August-NCC-93389-E
So the Stardate will advance a day as Caymen prepares to tell the crew of this change. And then after that we'll quickly jump through a week or two as we make transition and final prep to the new ship.
It will definitely be cozier, but I think it will be a lot of fun. And we'll pack a punch in battle for a small ship... especially if we can adapt that Romulan shockwave tech. :)
Ok, IC public announcement from my in a real life day or so and then you can PL your crying and such. I know I will. ;)

I'm honoured to announce to all roleplayers that numerous UFP members have received quite prestigious awards in service to Starfleet Harriers and the UFP Simms.
+ Belcans - Personal Achievement Award
Considering how physical injury could hardly keep our GM away from Legacy, I'm sure we all feel Belcans has certainly earned this one.
+ Connor - Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal, Federation Star
A bumper haul for one of our newest members as Riley Rohtin in Science, Connor no doubt is deserving of these shinies outside the Harriers as much as inside it.
+ deuZige - Combat Readiness Medal, Conduct Medal
Constantly fleshing out his character over both Simms, deuZige has thoroughly earned his medals for continuing to be a shining example of an active and excellent writer.
+ Mazoue - Promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade, Starfleet Medal, Federation Star
Taking his new place aboard Starbase Legacy, Mazoue in Engineering as Milo Landry has taken to the Simm like a duck to water. Congratulations!
+ Silynn - Promotion to Commodore
One of our longest-serving roleplayers on both Simms and UFP members, Silynn continues his lofty ascent into Starfleet Command...and to infinity (and beyond)?
And of course...
+ McClintock - Promotion to Commander, Nebula Star
No description necessary! :P I would however prefer to "get dirty" and eat the cupcake in the shower.
Last but certainly not least
+ Caymen Greener - Promotion to Commodore, Red Crest
Our division commanding officer and GM, Commodore Caymen has received an upgrade to the Admiralty! I understand there are cupcakes. Let me be the first (in this post) to extend congratulations and call dibs on the chocolate eclairs.
