Ship's Meeting, #00001
via Discord and at Decatur Public Library
In attendance today: Colonel Kelly Hays, Colonel Sarah Hays, Colonel Noble Hays, Commander Perry Brulotte, Commander Tracy Clark, Major General Tank Clark
The glorious crew of the Starship Kidd met today to begin nailing down things in our wonderful new Larson-class destroyer.
We started with a review of the history of our STARFLEET Marine unit, the 340th "Time Keepers". We have adjusted the unit to be a Marine Strike Group, as opposed to a Marine Expeditionary Unit, and we discussed the history of the 340th.
The crew likes their first look at the Ship's Articles; we are looking at approving them by the end of the calendar year. Everyone seems to like the Experience Point system, especially as it will help us keep track of who did what where and at what time, to whom; this will make "-of the year" awards easier to award.
We had a preliminary discussion about a ship's motto and slogan, but we all agreed we need more time to ponder the possibilities.
Further discussion included what type of Auxiliary Departments (other than the SFMC) we want on board (SFSO/MACO, SF Medical, PetFleet, Corps of Engineers, etc); we discussed creating a standard ship's uniform (including rank insignia style -- I lean toward using Canon rank insignia for officers, SFMC/SFSO/MACO insignia for enlisted); and reviewed imagery available online.
Our regular meetings will be on the first Saturday of each month, at 12:30 until 1400.
For the Empire!
Clark, commanding Kidd, out
