April 2004 ASR Honours

Outstanding Players

  • Craig Barrett, (NAV, USS YORKTOWN) Craig can be counted on for his steady and ongoing contribution to the ship, bringing character and plot development in a steady, and very entertaining, stream. His ability to write well with others while helping to move the unit's story-lines along serve as an example to the rest of ASR.
  • Dennis Manski (CNS, USS NEBULA) With the USS Nebula's situation at flux at best, a loss of her Captain, with little to no command staff to speak of, and with people coming and going, Dennis Manski was dedicated enough to stick with her. With his hard work and loyalty, he has almost single-handedly kept the Nebula from folding. His posts are well thought out, creative, and great literature to read. He is an invaluable member of the crew of the Nebula, and we are fortunate to have such a great role player!
  • Michael Allibrando (ENG, USS EXCALIBUR) for is a strong contributor to EXCALIBUR and is adept at enhancing the plot to include everyone on the ship.
  • Nel Heggis (COU, USS EXCALIBUR) On a ship with a number of excellent writers Nel stands out for her creative and entertaining writing. She brings a wealth of ideas to her unit while her continued character interaction and co-operative attitude towards role play are appreciated by all who write with her.
  • Kyungmi Kim (SCI, USS KIROV) Master of the joint post she goes out of her way to include everyone in the story line. She can be counted on for rich character development and to help move the plot along when things stall. Her contributions behind the scenes including mission suggestions are greatly appreciated by her CO as is her hard work and dedication. KIROV would be lost with out her.

Outstanding Command Players

  • Tim Cooke (CO, USS NEBULA) Tim took over a faltering unit with few active writers and has done a excellent job in turning it a round. Without his efforts and the time he has invested in NEBULA and her crew it is fairly likely the unit would have folded. Tim's dedication and commitment to his crew are an example to all and are greatly appreciated and respected by his Fleet Commander.
