    EX ASTRIS, SCIENTIA
    FROM THE STARS, KNOWLEDGE

    Greetings All! Welcome to the Twelfth Edition of the 2019 Academy News! I am Michael Deputy Commandant of Starfleet Academy. This newsletter is an initiative from the Academy that is intended to keep you abreast of the latest news from across the United Federation of Planets.


    NEW MEMBERS
    We welcome the following new members who have joined (or re-joined) the UFP in the last two weeks:
    • Morbous
    • inseeisyou
    • martdah




    SAVE THE DATE
    The 54th United Federation of Planets Awards Ceremony (UFPAC) will be held on Saturday the 21st of December, at 21:30 UFP time.

    This event is held roughly every three months and awards members with rank advancements and medals which are awarded for various achievements. To get a promotion and/or a medal you need to be active on the forums or in game, attending events and participating in forum discussions. Then you stand a good chance of getting noticed and receiving a nomination for an award from one of the CL6, CL5 or CL4 members of the UFP.


    COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

    • VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
      The UFP would not be the place it is today without our volunteers who selflessly sacrifice their time to help out. Check out the currently open volunteer positions, and how to apply for one, here.




    UPCOMING EVENTS
    The United Federation of Planets has a good number of events coming up! You can sign up for any of these events here:

    • AGE OF EMPIRES II: DEFINITIVE EDITION:
      Tuesday, 17th December at 1900 GMT/UFP; Quartermaster Seapanda We will be playing the remake of the above named game, Age of Empires II: Remastered. There are several mods that are currently being used in the game, and new members who join the event will be able to either subscribe to the mods (graphical mods) or we will revert back to the default game.

      A custom defense map is currently being used, where all players face off against increasingly more difficult AI. For the time being, the teams will be locked, to prevent people like me turning on you lot Smile Later on, as this event grows, we will ask for feedback and look into different maps and game modes.

    • COMPANY OF HEROES 2:
      Wednesday, 18th December at 1900 GMT/UFP; Executive Officer Bedders Greetings fellow Generals!
