I know for some of us this year has flown by. For others, it’s seemed to drag on forever. Either way, it’s December, and a new year is just around the corner. That also means that we’re full swing into the holiday season, and with that we usually see a reduction in activity. Commanding officers, please be aware of this. We also have some exciting news since it is the end of the year, but I’ll tell you more about that later.
First, we’d like to welcome a couple of new sims. First off, Rear Admiral Calloway, as Captain Reginal Jacobs, has introduced the Cestus III Academy, a campus of Starfleet Academy located near the Eleventh Fleet headquarters. This sim can be used for players interested in cadet characters, but also for members who are newer to simming to help build up experience. The second new sim transferring into Pegasus Fleet last month is the SS Ceres, an NX-class sim commanded by Commander Gregory Watney set during the Earth-Romulan War. Please give a warm welcome to Commander Watney and the crew of the Ceres!
This past month we also have some new additions to the Pegasus Fleet staff. Already a longtime member of the Resources staff, I’m excited to announce our new Chief of Starfleet Engineering, Captain Alex Powell. I’m also excited to announce two new Task Force Commanding Officers. In TF56, we have Lt. Commander Canaan Serine of the USS Cardinal! And in D74 we have Captain Celia Rhodes of the USS Mauretania! Congratulations to our new staff members!
Last month Pegasus Fleet and Independence Fleet hosted the Tenth Annual Fall Fest. FallFest is an online roleplaying convention that is held each year in the fall in conjunction with OngoingWorlds. This year’s event was held on November 14. We had a really great turnout at this year’s event. It was wonderful to see so many members of Pegasus Fleet presenting the fleet. We also had some fantastic panels led by members of our community. At our meeting this week I’d like to talk about FallFest and hear from those who attended about what they liked, and what they thought we could do better.
Speaking of FallFest, I’m also proud to say that OngoingWorlds has presented the OngoingWorlds Community Honor to Rear Admiral Devane and myself for our service and support of this year’s FallFest. Thank you very much to OngoingWorlds for this honor.
Before I move on from the topic of online conventions, I’m also excited to announce Pegasus Fleet will be co-hosting the 2021 Khitomer Conference. The Khitomer Conference is just around the corner on February 20, 2021. Time and details will be announced later. Panelists are already being lined up, so if anyone is interested in leading a panel, see me or Amethyst for more information.
As I said, it’s the end of the year. And with the end of the year, that means it’s time for our end of year fleet awards. These first three awards will be decided by all of you through a community vote. The awards up for vote are:
Voting will be open on these awards until January 2. You can vote on all three of these awards hereNew Commanding Officer of the Year

Executive Officer of the Year

We also have our Sim of the Year awards that will not be based on votes, and instead will be determined by the monthly award performance throughout the year.
Finally, our last award is the Exemplary Service Award, which will be presented to any player at the discretion of the Pegasus Fleet Admiralty in recognition of outstanding service to the Fleet as a whole. We’ll be accepting nominations for this award through January 2 as well. Please send your nominees to firstname.lastname@example.org.Roman Sanchez Sim of the Year
