His level of contribution is exceptional and rare in such a new player. He is a credit to both his unit and the game.
  • Sean Speake (MCO, USS CIRCE) Mr. Speake has delivered some of the best marine officer writing in ASR's history. The depth and believability in his characterization on a marine officer go far above and beyond the norm. Sean has also developed and writes for a rich supporting cast of major marine non-coms and officers that add flavor to marine operations on the CIRCE. Long considered a difficult post to breathe life into or play well, Sean has clearly shown how marine activities can fit into the overall storyline of a ship.

Chris' leadership has been evidenced in his consistent, high-quality posts, as well as his ability to write in a manner that draws in all players, thereby enhancing participation. Chris developed the CIRCE web page and set up a posting archive, all without prompting. He has been an asset to the CIRCE, as well as to ASR.
  • Jason Bostjancic (CO, USS VALIANT; SEC, USS KIROV) As a CO of a small vessel, with unique needs, Jason has managed to keep things moving forwards, fostering an environment that allows new players to come into their own. Mr. Bostjancic is also a valuable contributor to the KIROV and his NRP efforts throughout the fleet are appreciated by all.
  • James Braun (CO, USS CORONA) Mr. Braun is to be commended for his excellence as a veteran commanding officer of an existing unit.

When the split left his ship asunder, he led the USS CORONA's rapid recovery.

  • Melvin Pollack (CO, DS4) Mr. Pollack never ceases to amaze and delight the readers of DS4 with his creative output for his unit. His RP is augmented by his patient NRPG correspondence with all of his players, and his willingness to let the players' imaginations run their full course has led to the development of a unit with a truly unique presence in ASR.
  • Alton Reich (CO, USS YAMATO) Mr. Reich is a dedicated command player who runs a strong ship. Under his leadership, YAMATO has developed a unique character. He posts consistently and demonstrated unflagging dedication to and leadership of his unit, and hasn't missed a beat since taking the additional responsibility of INDIGOXO.
  • Peach Sweeny (XO, USS CHESAPEAKE) Ms. Sweeny is a steady and energetic presence on which the CO and her crewmates can depend.

Meritorious Administrative Commendations

As an instructor, Chris is enthusiastic and supportive, and provides an excellent introduction to ASR for his students.

Mr. Bostjancic has also been a steady administrator for Star Fleet Engineering, bringing fresh ideas and outstanding new graphic work to the most venerable branch in ASR.
  • James Bowman (CINCVIOLET) When ASR split into two separate RPG groups, Mr. Bowman was called upon to take up the reins of the fleet that suffered most from the split. He executed with promptness and tact the thankless task of corresponding with departing units and making sure that all players (regardless of fleet) knew all the options available to them in a time of great confusion. He should be recognized if only for his great fortitude and skill in dealing with players, regardless of game.
  • D'Maris Coffman (CINCGOLD) Ms. Coffman has been a source of inspiration to her players and, as a result, Gold Fleet has prospered. It is difficult to over-emphasize the effect that her dedication the the players in Gold Fleet, effort in creating web-page supported interlocking story lines, and knowledge ASR have been have had for those players.

Star Fleet Outstanding Unit Citation

  • DS13

Most Improved ASR Unit Award


Honors to Retired Personnel

  • Andrew Bell (former CO, USS SORANUS) and Ken Cox (former CO, USS ASCLEPIUS) Two very able commanders who deserve recognition for their willingness to keep their ships running actively, for the freshness of their roleplay ideas, and their personal graciousness. We honor them for their roles as commanding officers.
  • Andy Catterick (former CINCGREEN) Mr. Catterick's willingness to trust his COs with the independence to do what is best for their units, and be available when they need his assistance, as well as his integrity and honesty, make him an effective and well-respected CINCGREEN.
  • Chris Fontaine (former COMSILVERTFZ) Ms. Fontaine is recognized for her work as the commander of Task Force Zinderneuf, her work on the Silver Fleet web page and general dedication above and beyond the call of duty for her work.
  • Mary Ann Harrison (former ALB Personnel Officer) Following in the footsteps of her predecessor, Masako Goto, Mary Ann worked tirelessly as Personnel Officer, helping new players develop their character bios. Her energy, enthusiasm and good humour made all newcomers feel welcome to the world of ASR.
  • Paul Kiefer Jr. (formerly of USS SUFFOLK) Paul was an active, interested contributor to his ship, ably assisting in roleplay and any NRPG duties assigned to him. His contribution to the SUFFOLK over the last six months deserves recognition.
  • Takako Nagumo (former CSFO) Ms. Nagumo has served in the demanding role of CSFO during an interesting year which saw one CINCSF step down and which saw ASR ranks split into two different PBEMs. She was able to step into the "hot seat" that is the office of CSFO and managed to maintain the good will of the body of ASR. Even the players who have moved on to SFPD have expressed their admiration for Ms. Nagumo as an administrator. Both during the RT and outside of it, some have wanted her to run for CINCSF, but her real-life concerns have unfortunately prevented her from doing so. She has maintained the respect and admiration of just about anyone who has served in any administrative position in ASR. She acts quickly, puts in long hours in front of the computer behind the scenes, and only for the love of the game.
  • Tim Tyson (former TAC, USS CONSTELLATION) During his time aboard the CONSTELLATION, Mr. Tyson's attention to the accurate portrayal of his character, Lieutenant Kzar, set a standard which might never be exceeded. He established high levels of quality in any individual or collaborative effort.
