Commander John van Leigh, TSN.
Tonight I was promoted, even though I was expecting someone else to receive the charge. At any rate, I’m now supposed to command the Phoenix, the oldest ship on the division. She’s nice, but too much of a generalist in combat, so she doesn’t let any specific tactics shine. I need to look at XO candidates as well, but with the upcoming reshuffling I’m not sure who I’ll get. About my new crew, I have to see, but some of the officers who served with me today are great.
We also had the award ceremony, even though it was scheduled a week from today. Turns out, the admiral had some free time. Attendance was low.
For our mission, we had to protect the rearguard for Admiral Coates. Not to hard, we just had to fly around the Horizon, ocasionally firing ordnance or killing an easy target. Then, after some simulations (the first one frustratingly underwhelming, the second one fast paced and engaging), we did a last sim moving crews around so that everyone could see new captains and request a permanent post. Let’s see what this means for Phoenix.14/08/2016 at 05:25 #15257Adele MundyParticipant
Congratulations on the promotion, sir!
//You had the award ceremony! We were hoping to listen in on Teamspeak, but we were both tired and when we heard no mention of it we went to sleep.14/08/2016 at 05:32 #15263
//I was sure the ceremony was going to be next week. Sorry you missed it!14/08/2016 at 05:56 #15272AramondParticipant
//The weird thing is that not only was it not on the schedule for this shift, there’s also a note saying it’ll be carried out next week. But, I do remember “Coates” saying that he didn;t have all the awards on him at the time. Me thinks there’s going to be a part two.14/08/2016 at 08:54 #15277MatsiyanParticipant
// Could someone post the list of awards that was handed out? It is going to be very difficult to pick it up by trolling through people’s online profiles.
I am hoping that we can call into the briefing at the start of the next shift. It would be nice if any ceremony could take place at the start rather than later.
Congratulations on the well-deserved promotion!14/08/2016 at 14:06 #15284
//Thanks! If there’s no part two (because spoilers) I’ll try to present the list. But we’ll hve to wait for the next session.14/08/2016 at 16:55 #15288AposineParticipant
// I took notes as the ceremony went down, although I’m not sure I got it perfectly because, well, awards were awarded in rapid succession. If it’s okay I could post them here.14/08/2016 at 17:23 #15293
//Maybe it’s best if we wait. Don’t worry about missing names, the senior staff has a list with all the awards we can just post, but I’m not sure if either Allard skipped some names, or if there’s going to be a repeat, and if there’s a repeat we should let the recipients be somewhat surprised. Still, I’m not ordering anything and the awards aren’t classified, so if you want to post it, do it.14/08/2016 at 20:40 #15302Blaze StrifeParticipant
//Ah, I don’t think I’ll be able to participate next week. But again, congratulations on the well deserved promotion! 😀14/08/2016 at 20:56 #15304
//Thanks! Damn, Blaze… At any rate, you’ll read the list as soon as it’s released.14/08/2016 at 21:05 #15306AposineParticipant
// Personally, I’m hoping for a repeat at this point. Stop the spoilers!!14/08/2016 at 21:49 #1530914/08/2016 at 22:19 #15311
//Can’t blame him!
