Monthly Update - July 2021

Post by Alex » Sat Jul 10, 2021 9:38 am

Hello everyone!

Since it was Pride Month last month, I completely forgot to wish the dads of our Fleet a Happy Father’s Day! For most of us we’re getting into the prime summer months, and with that comes extra hot days. I know some of you are dealing with record highs. I hope you are all able to stay cool.

I’d like to start us off with a couple of commanding officer announcements. First off, I’d like to welcome Commander Temperance Harding of the Nebula-class USS Endurance! The Endurance is a unique version of the Nebula-class since she is equipped with a flight deck pod, allowing her to operate as a mini-carrier.

Coming back to the proverbial center-chair is Captain Cassandra McMillan, the commanding officer of Ashen Dawn. Ashen Dawn is a post-apocalyptic military thriller joining us in Division 74.

Please give a big welcome to both of our new COs!

I’m also excited to announce that last month the USS Astraea, under the command of Captain Abigail Laurens, celebrated their two year anniversary! Congratulations, Captain! We look forward to many more adventures of the Astraea!

After careful discussion with Admiralty and Staff, we have created a new Discord channel, #venting-void. This is a safe space where people can vent/rant without repercussion and find support from friends. It will be opt-in only in order to protect our members, so anyone interested in joining should contact one of the PFA members. To ensure that nothing that is said lingers in main channels, the #venting-void will be purged regularly.

The last update for this month is actually new as of last night (July 8), and affects our Nova installations. For those of you who are not on the Anodyne server, I’ve copied the message from AgentPhoenix below.
“Around 8pm Eastern tonight a major security vulnerability in Nova 2 was brought to our attention. We quickly confirmed the existence of the vulnerability and are releasing Nova 2.6.2 tonight to patch the issue. We strongly urge all game masters to update their sites as soon as possible.

Due to the highly sensitive nature of the vulnerability, we are not making more details available at this time. As a matter of internet security, we highly recommend that all Nova users change their password at their earliest convenience, and ensure that they are no longer using their previous Nova password anywhere else.

At this time all of our COs have been notified, and Fleet Staff are working to get our sim Nova sites updated as soon as we are able. Some may not be completed until later this weekend. I do ask that everyone be patient with us while we work through it. If your sim site seems to be experiencing difficulties, it’s likely that it is in the process of being updated.

I highly encourage everyone to follow AgentPhoenix’s recommendation of changing your passwords. As passwords have been potentially compromised, it is entirely possible for someone to correlate emails and passwords from Nova. If you use your Nova password and email anywhere else online, we strongly recommend that you change it everywhere. We don’t necessarily have any reason to believe that any of the Pegasus Fleet sites have been compromised, but it’s a simple task that may save you, and your sims, from many headaches later. Commanding Officers, please send your crews a separate reminder just in case they miss the message here.

Our meeting this month will be held in the #meeting channel on Discord this Sunday, July 11 at 3:00 pm EDT / 8:00 pm BST. The meeting is open to all members of Pegasus Fleet and any guests that may be interested in learning more about our community. The next meeting will be on Sunday, August 8.

As always, Live Long and Prosper
Alex

For the June Post of the Month, we were not able to get the survey created for various reasons before sending out the update. We should have the survey link available for the meeting on Sunday, but if not, we’ll get it sent out as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
