++ PRIORITY ONE MESSAGE INCOMING ++
Greetings my friends,
now on the 4th Anniversary of THE 300 we look back on a long history in Star Trek Online, being one of the first fleets in game we are still a force to reckoned with - and most important: we are on a good course for a prospering future.
It was about 2.5 years ago when I was called to step in Giles' footsteps as Fleet Marshal of THE 300. I had two primary objectives on my agenda. First i wanted to improve the inner fleet communication across all ranks, thus opening up our community for new members and ideas and secondly I wanted to make sure that we will be able to take full advantage of the (new) holding system. Today we see those ideas implemented, our fleet has as much members as never before and our fleet holdings are nearly completed on FED while members move between ranks more freely.
This was no easy task and all of you have shared the burden in good and bad times, it's safe to say that we would not be at this point if we would not have supported each other in every possible way. Without all your support, advice and suggestions the fleet's development in the last 2 years would not have been possible. Thank you all very much for your endless dedication, loyality and support. Especially my fellow FOCCOM members who supported me in every possible way!
Seeing my agenda now completed, this makes it the perfect time for me to step down from my position as Fleet Marshal and transfer to the Fleet Advisory Council. It was a honour to serve among such fine women and men! However that does not mean I will be 'gone' - in contrast: expect me to be still around to join you with missions and support you with anything.
THE 300 is one of the finest fleets in game and it deserves the best leadership it can get, I feel it is a perfect opportunity for our fleet's next step into a glorious future. I am very happy to announce that the Fleet Operational and Tactical Command has decided in an unanymous vote on THE 300's new leadership.
I congratulate our new Fleet Marshal Niazra (@tomaito1) and our new Vice Marshal Mabel (@NoraaNeab)! Please give both all your support as you did for me, both already did a great job at their former TACCOM positions and have kept the fleet running in the last months.
Also I would like to invite you all to the first All Hands Fleet Meeting under the new leadership of Fleet Marshal Niazra and Vice Marshal Mabel on the 15th of March 2014 at 02:30pm LA / 05:30pm NY / 10:30pm UK / 11:30pm GER. Details will be announced on the website and in-game event tab soon.
Again I would like to thank you all for making THE 300 the awesome, friendly and prospering fleet it is! I wish Niazra and Mabel all the best for their new positions, please help them to achieve the best for our community.
