From the Fleet Commander

Hello Fleet 31,

Well we’re now 2 months into the Fleet year and I’m happy to report that things are moving along. To be honest, it’s not as quickly as I’d hoped, but when you have a large diverse group you have to learn to roll with the punches. I’m quite proud of the progress our fleet has made none the less. We continue to forge ahead day after day and I’m happy that we are being noticed. I’ve been getting emails from organizations in New York, Texas, and Florida asking for our help with events. This is a great way to serve the community, increase knowledge of the fleet, and best of all recruit.

Presently the Command council is deliberating the Fleet Wide Major Emphasis Project. This is a project designed to bring the fleet together to work on a common cause. It won’t supplant what your are doing right now, but it will augment your chapter’s program. I believe it will add to the flavor of the Fleet as a whole. The projects being considered, after several weeks of nominations are: Environmental Cleanup, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and Project Linus. Each one of these causes is worthy of our time and attention. Please let your Commander Officer know which project you prefer so when it comes to vote in the very near future, your voice will be heard.

Starting this month, in an effort to track our fleet wide goals, I’ve started a monthly reporting process. Nothing too intensive. One Page that covers the areas we have outlined. These reports are essential to the leadership of Fleet 31 in keeping tabs on how active we all are and what help and assistance each ship needs. It’s just another way to keep the lines of communication open. I look forward to seeing what the ships do each month.

Also included with the Monthly Report is an area designed to recognize Fleet 31 members at the Fleet Level. It’s my hope that we will be able to institute a Fleet awards system in order to give a pat on the back to those officers and crew that exemplify the very mission of Fleet 31. Each month I’ll pour over the reports and those that are nominated by the Ship’s CO will be give some as yet undetermined kudos. It’s my hope that this takes off and becomes a regular occurrence and maybe even trickles down to the ship level by ships creating their own recognition programs.

That’s about all I have for this month I’ll leave you with this. Fleet 31 has the potential to make someone smile each and every day. You are that potential. Hold that door open, help a neighbor, pay for the person behind you in the drive thru. Random acts of kindness can change the world and as Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”. CorClavisVictoriae!

Star Trek Las Vegas is an annual 4-day pilgrimage, Thursday to Sunday, for thousands of Trek fans, young and old. Our Seattle based Fleet 31 ship USS CaptMal_CounselorVeracity were represented at this year’s convention, which included myself, Counselor Karen Malomay, Michele Celich-Tactical Officer, Cadet Cole Malomay, and USS Syber Capt Scot Sterling CO, Andy Lutz XO, Noel Lee Verlarde CMO as well as personnel from Starbase PortlandJay Galloway, Jamie Snyder, and Michelle Wells.

There were notable absentees this year including Leonard Nimoy and Grace Lee WhitneySpock and Yeoman Rand respectively and with respect.

Fleet_BannerSTLVWe met up with additional Fleet 31 personnel for a photo-op premiering our Fleet 31, USS Veracity, and UFP banners by the StarFleet symbol at the main entrance.

There were props for photo-ops The Guardian of Forever, transporter pad, Borg alcove and TOS bridge. We attended screenings of both Star Trek: Renegades and Star Trek Continues “The White Iris” episode. Veracity_Captain_Guardian

We also had a chance to present Vic Mignogna (Kirk) and Michele Specht (Doctor McKenna) of Star Trek Continues with Honorary Fleet 31 Ambassador certificates and a Fleet 31 commbadge. (A full report is forthcoming)

The panels were tremendous- especially the Voyager panel, TNG, and the DS9 Rat Pack show, where the DS9 alumni do Las Vegas-inspired musical parodies full of DS9 references.

We had numerous inquiries about our uniforms and noticed half a dozen people take pictures of our banners so it wouldn’t surprise me if we get some new member requests. This year seemed to be confusing and disorganized don’t know if that was more me or the convention. I know how expensive conventions are with airfare, hotel, tickets, food, so I know it takes planning and saving money but this convention is one of the biggest in Star Trek fandom. If at all possible find a way to get to Las Vegas.

Counselor_Beracity_BorgThere were cosplayers galore this year Borg, Vulcan, Capt Pike, Ferengi, Andorians all were represented. My wife, son and I were Ferengi and Redshirts this year with some surprises next year.
