    APOLOGIES
    • Petrach
    • Saelanna

    FLEET ADMIRAL UPDATES/ANNOUNCEMENTS
    • 357 responses to the community survey so far, for those who haven’t yet filled it in, please feel free to do so - https://ufplanets.com/survey.php
    • I keep getting ill, don’t worry, it’s not COVID-19!
    • Looking into a rework of the CL5 CPA.

    Divisional Updates

    Federation Executive Officers
    • Community Administration:
      • Three has re-tasked me to look at the CPA and look to reintroduce this across SFA.Financial accounts have been submitted for UFPlanets to Companies House. Other than that, only a few dramas.

    • Community Development:
      • Nothing to report.

    • Community Gaming:
      • There has been a change in command staff within Holodeck. Noram has decided to step down from his role as CO of Holodeck and Bedders has taken his place, he is currently finding a potential new XO. UFPAC recommendations close today so get them in. There will be a UFPAC Raffle, and the event planning will go up on Sunday for CL4 and CL5s. UFPAC is on the T28th of March

    • Community Technical Services & Security:
      • Development has been developed, and security has been secured. Two factor authentication coming soon, enrollment for CL6 will be mandatory, and hopefully all of CL5 will choose to enable it as well. Forum encryption is hopefully coming soon, but will require a lot of changes to vBulletin, as well as a separate search system to accommodate it.



    Starfleet Command
    • Star Trek Online:
      • Nothing to report.

    • Starfleet Operations:
      • Had a new staff recruitment for Personnel Officers. Had returning and new members into the CL4 role. Total of 6 new Personnel Officers were added to the ranks of STO Staff. Members being Terrell, Lukekillz from returning. New members to the team itself are Pedigo, Heyallo, Jestersmith & Darthnovawave.
      • Since the month of December Michael showed exemplary support as Personnel Officer. He was promoted to Quartermaster, as we had a slot open and to help out the current Quartermasters.
      • Due to Solace’s exemplary performance over the last 6 months with Special Forces and increasing activity, we decided to give Special Operations it’s own sub-forum, which can be seen within the STO forum.
      • In terms of Special Forces, ground runs will be re-introduced which will be lead by Jestersmith - something which Bill did previously in the past. The new DPS League 2.0 has had an amazing response. More themed events will also be enroute for Special Operations.
    • House of Kular:
      • Nothing to report.

    • Starfleet Holodeck:
      • As Sammy already said, a big event for Holodeck with Noram stepping down as CO. I've said it before but once again I'd like to thank you, Noram, for your hard work and dedication to Holodeck during your incredible 4 years - as first XO and then CO - of Holodeck. Thank you.
      • In light of this I'm currently accepting applications for XO, link in Teamspeak. Closing date is 21st March so you still have a week to apply if you're interested. https://ufplanets.com/showthread.php...cutive-Officer
      • We've got loads of events at the moment from SWTOR and Division 2 to World of Warships - check the events page for more details. Stellaris will be starting in the coming weeks, with 2 events to suit different peoples' availability.

    • ARES Roleplay:
      • The story is progressing and we’ve welcomed in some new members. We will be picking up on more things shortly.

    • Federation News Service:
      • Many new writers taken on, with a lot more articles coming out as a result. Current activity is looking good.
      • A few articles for myself to come out soon, when I stop being ill.
      • Will look into press passes for conventions coming up this year again.

    • Starfleet Academy:
      • Emmy, Silek, Dracojan & AlexRider have joined the Academy as RSOs.

    • External Operations:
      • The Armada remains full on both the Fed and KDF sides and the majority of the fleets are high level which allows for the maximum bonuses.
      • Some fleets do limit some donations of fleet credits or dilithium to members only. Typically the reason for this is that they require their members to donate a certain amount for membership, promotion, etc.
      • If you are aware of any inappropriate behavior from any Armada members, please document it as thoroughly as possible and let me know ASAP,


    REVIEW OF PREVIOUS MEETING ACTION POINTS
    • None.


    AGENDA ITEMS

    NOTE: Those who raise the agenda item are expected to help write the minutes for their item.
    • No items raised.


    CL5/CL6 OPEN FLOOR
    • Mack wants to thank Bridger for reading his notes while his mic was not working.
    • Lazereth asked CL6 and CL5 if they had used any 2FA at all, and members responded with Yes or No in chat, Yes was the most common answer.
    • Three of Seven thanked Noram for his service to Holodeck.


    SPECIFIC MEMBER QUESTIONS

    Being a security guy in real life this makes me very happy and I'm looking forward to the implementation of MFA!

    Misdirection is the key to survival. Never attack what your enemy defends, never behave as your enemy expects and never reveal your true strength. If knowledge is power then to be unknown is to be unconquerable.
