As the Commanding Officer of SFO, Mack is in a unique position to coordinate and direct involvement of members of the various fleets to enjoy STO on an Armada wide community scale. Mack already has some innovative ideas in mind to boost game play and communication within the Armada and I think we are all going to be very excited to see what he has in store for the Armada. So again Mack, welcome to External Operations!" (From Bill)
