To the Best Sim

Posted on Saturday September 7th, 2019 @ 8:31am by Captain Franklin Johnson

I was slightly disappointed that our great accomplishment of 86 posts for the month wasn't mentioned in the monthly report, but don't fret crew. Just because Pegasus Fleet Admirality is too busy patting their own backs doesn't mean your Command Staff isn't busy showing their appreciation to you! I want to emphasize that this is the best crew I have ever had the pleasure to sim with. You all bring some amazing and unique qualities to the table that very few sims I've participated in permit. I firmly believe that the culture of inclusion and openness to every idea here on the Poseidon allows that, and I feel greatly that by us encouraging you to be as creative as possible helps with that. Remember that there are no closed doors to the Command Staff here on my ship, you are always free to voice your opinions, complaints, and suggestions and we take each one seriously.

You guys are the best!

Once the inventory is through at my warehouse today, and possibly following a bit of chaos on Monday, I should be back to appearing regularly here. I'll be able to start our departure formally and I am so super excited to begin this next phase with all of you. Don't worry! Our last mission will still be available for you to post in. I want you all to have the freedom and room to explore your characters as much as possible.

Keep up the good work and thank you humbly for your patience with me!

On a similar note, because we have the option to post between missions at the moment, I've decided to extend that availability well into September so that we can make sure all of your characters plot lines are well elaborated. I don't want you to feel you weren't given the opportunity to explore a specific facet of your characters personality, especially if we're entering a close-off point like we are now with departure. Remember also that we have some new members, so I encourage you all to take the time and contact your fellow crewmate and highly encourage you to consider a joint post - trust me, it's worth the fun, even if it's just a few paragraphs! By establishing a dialogue early on with a character, it opens up a world of opportunities later on. The choice, ultimately, is up to you.

Lastly, I wanted to give a reminder that no matter if I am busy like I am now, I am always available to talk, especially if it's something you deem very important or personal. I am not a strict Commanding Officer when it comes to the health and safety of my crew, my fellow players. We are all equals when it comes to writing this story, it just happens I'm the guy at the head of it. I don't like to dictate things unless it deals with moving on a specific part of the story. Furthermore, I greatly appreciate when a player gives ideas on how best they think we should proceed. Even if we have a roadmap on where we want to go and where we want to be, it's always considered somewhat fluid especially when new and fresh ideas are presented.

On top of that, and to elaborate, if you ever need to talk about anything non-sim related or just need a shoulder to lean on, your fellow crew in the Command Staff is here for you - I am here for you. Like I stated before, it doesn't matter if I'm busy, my priority is you. Don't ever feel afraid to talk to me. You are important to me and always will be. I'm positive my Command Staff will emphasize my point.

Let's all move forward, together! :)

Good job crew,
Franklin Johnson
Commanding Officer
U.S.S. Poseidon
