Very Special Thanks to Theta Fleet for taking us in during a particularly hard time in our sims existence as we transitioned from one fleet to another. You have treated us with utmost respect, courtesy and professionalism and this will never be forgotten. You have made us feel so welcome in your fleet!
Special thanks to Mama Duck (NinjaDuck#8880) for their absolutely outstanding support of the USS Poseidon during the particularly difficult transition - you have made this fleet feel like our first home with your care.

A very special thanks to Capt. Maho Takahashi/Lt. Cmndr. Erika Itsumi (That guy with the R32#7558) for referencing Theta Fleet to and giving us the opportunity and opening to find a healthier place for the sim - you have always been a friend and family of the USS Poseidon and I thank you, we thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. You contributions are endless and absolutely loved.

A very special thanks and great big hug to Lt. Karina Sakaguchi (Willvoy#4642) for their invitation to Theta Fleet and their role in our primary introductions to the fleet and custom made USS Poseidon LCARS skin for the website! Karina has been a long-standing member of the USS Poseidon - both off and on - and is a critical member of our community. They are also a very valued friend and without them, the USS Poseidon would likely not exist due to their help in our early years. Thank you for your continued friendship and comradery my friend!

For everyone else not referenced, thank you so much for your wonderful kindness and love.

Special thanks to Amethyst whom assisted with the website transfer for Pegasus Fleet hosting proper, and who tolerated our tomfoolery when we pressed the wrong buttons. Amethyst assisted us in our transfer to our own hosting service to Ifastnet as well. She is selfless, a wonderful person, and a wonderful friend. Thank you Amethyst!

Thank you especially to everyone not referenced here at Pegasus Fleet who made our first three years an absolute wonder.
