Crew Awards

Crew's Choice Award Crew's Choice Award
Voted on by the crew of the simm in question.

No real criteria, just the player which the crew feels excelled that month.
Captain's Personal Merit Captain's Personal Merit
Awarded to the crew member who the Captain feels worthy.
Tour of Duty Award Tour of Duty Award
Awarded for participation in a simulation’s first mission.

The Expeditionary Medal is awarded to all crew members who have participated in the majority of the first operational mission of their simm (including the Commanding Officer). This award cannot be granted to participants in a Restricted Independent Operational mission.
Service Citation 2+ Years Service Citation 2+ Years
Awarded to crew who have served on the same vessel for two years and for each subsequent year thereafter.

It is becoming increasingly common for players to extend their service beyond two years and, as such, we reward those stalwart contributors.
Service Citation 1 Year Service Citation 1 Year
Awarded to crewmembers who have served on the ship for one year. This award is non-cumulative.
Recruitment Award Recruitment Award
For recognition of recruitment successes.

In order to secure a bright and long lasting future for Obsidian Fleet, there must always be the continual introduction of excited and eager new players. This award is to recognize those who have successfully recruited a new player to the simm who remains on that simm for a minimum period of 6 months. (OOC award, not available to the simm's CO)
Ribbon of Merit Ribbon of Merit
This ribbon is used to symbolize the great sacrifice that the men and women of Starfleet endure.

These officers often pay the price for defending the very principles of the United Federation of Planets. A player must recieve a Purple Heart in order to qualify for this ribbon. Those who cannot perform their normal duties aboard their location of service due to ongoing medical conditions and wounds (both which must have originated in service) are eligible for this ribbon.
Service Accommodation Service Accommodation
Awarded to the crew member who performs his/her character's job and advances above and beyond the job description they were "hired" to follow.
Bronze Star Bronze Star
Ribbon of Commitment Ribbon of Commitment
Given to a person who has truly put forth an indisputable amount of extra effort.

This refers primarily to out of character circumstances. Recruiting, pulling the crew together, posting, helping to fill in the "gaps", and helping maintain their ship's website are just a few of the things that could count toward this award. Truly, this is one award to cherish when received. Sample posts are not required, but a detailed description of the events for which the award is being sought for is.
Silver Star Silver Star
The crew member who demonstrates supreme postings, posts often, and plays his/her character "to the hilt" will receive this award. Arguably considered one of the highest honors a crew member can receive.
