Euphini Expanse tour of duty Awards

Ladies and gents of the 4th light Division.

Our transition back to Atlantis command marks the end of the tour of duty in the Euphini Expanse.

It was a difficult time for the fleet, between adventurous exploration of unknown space and hard fought combat with the pirate forces that dwell in the dark corners of the expanse.

Now we are back in the Atlantis sector the work begins to regroup, and re arm before our next deployment.

But before we move on we should look back to the actions taken by the fleet and the individuals that make up the 4th light division.

With the end of any tour of duty comes the reflection and nominations for awards for those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty, for the officers who stand tall in there field of speciality as an example to others. And for those who have demonstrated exceptionally meritorious service and the highest aptitude, great coolness, and the utmost valour in combat

if you believe an officer has shown the quality’s required to earn an award simply fill in the award nomination form and submit it, the senior officers will compile the nominations and awards will be handed out shortly after.

details of the awards officers are eligible for can be found Here

and the form for nominating a fellow officer can be found here

Updates – website content (OOC)

Over the past few weeks, more and more content has been added to the TSN website. Much of the content has been added to the Division Library. Under Protocols and Procedures, there are now several links to key protocols and procedures that are used during missions. Many of these are new, and were discussed recently by the Command Staff team.

As we run a lot of missions, ideas crop up all the time about how to deal with different situations. The most recent was official guidelines for escorting another vessel, due to our recent mission escorting the TSAF Asimov to its new location. There are now definitive guidelines on procedures about escorting other ships, from the distances to maintain, to how to respond to emergency situations and other ships in distress. As a result, protocols and procedures for making and responding to distress calls have also been created.

There are still a number of protocols and procedures to be added to the site, many of them already used and established. These will be included in the near future as work continues on the site itself. It will be important to get the shift protocols and procedures included soon, particularly to assist those officers who have recently joined.

Under the Division Library, there has also been the addition of the Officer Training page. At this moment, only the Basic Training page is accessible, but eventually the Advanced Training will be online, and will include new documents similar to (and including) the Helm: Beyond the Protocols document. There will also be a section about other roles and responsibilities such as Intelligence Officers, Training Instructors and Duty Officers.

Finally, there have been some additions to the Comms Net, increasing the number of forums available. There are now 3 main forums, with plans for a 4th private forum for the Intelligence Officers. These provide different areas to communicate with other officers, from general social discussions in the Mess Hall, to proposing ideas in Division Development, and other, more formal discussions in the Wardroom.

There is still going to be a lot of content to add to the site, with the Vessel Database being a rather large project that is still very much in its infancy, and the Universe still missing much of the information from the original site. It will be built up gradually though, and already has a significant amount of information available.
