I am leading a new Short Story Competition, like we used to do in UFP. So all of you great writers on the simms, get out your "pens" and get writing. You have two weeks, and all the details are here:
And the winner gets a nice publish in the UFP's new News outlet!

We now have our new home setup on the UFP forums! Thanks to Jake and Jordan and others, we're all set to go. Most of it is CL1 now so just about anyone can get in and see what we're doing, which is a good thing. The simms are an open "tool" anyways.
So look for future discussions and announcements there!

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.

Josh was working with one of the nurses on adjusting the medical tricorders that were quickly giving him a fit.
"Why the hell is the Delta band on these things not working?!" He said, growing more and more frustrated.

The air was cool that night as he strode across the hills, in and out of the light forested areas and tall grasses. The plains were beautiful this time of year, but they were also prime for hunting.

Josh showed up with Riley on the Bridge. The doctor had his glasses on top of his head. "Take your station," Josh said, "set it up the way you like and let Kurtis know if there's anything you need done to the sensors."

My pacing back and forth blocked out a large, tall portion of the stars viewable from Earth Spacedock. Every so often I glance at the devastation wrecked by transitioning to a new vessel; having to pick and choose some unlucky souls to leave behind and have transferred elsewhere in Starfleet,…

Londance was looking over dozens of PADD's left on his office desk, each one a detailed file of every crew member aboard the August. Usually his office was a tad more organized, but as usual with the councilor - if there is clutter, there is a reason for it.
