» Sim/Ship Swap with USS Liberty

Posted on Wed May 26th, 2021 @ 1:51am by Admiral Charles Star in General News

Gallant Sunfire Crew:

As your CO has already informed you, you all will be embarking on a historic journey next month: the sim/ship swap with the USS Liberty. Here's how it'll work:

-Before June 1st: Re-create your Sunfire character on the Liberty
-June 1st: Captain Sandy "Ghost" Shannon & Captain Rhenora Kaylen will send a joint post on both ships starting the missions for the ship swap in story
-June 1st: Captain Sandy "Ghost" Shannon officially becomes CO/host of the Liberty, and Captain Rhenora Kaylen officially becomes CO/host of the Sunfire
-The similar, but separate missions will run concurrently on each ship; you're free to participate in both!
-Before July 1st: Each CO will end their respective mission, and your characters will be deactivated on the Sunfire; you will continue on the Liberty

One thing's for certain... it's sure to be wild! We've never done anything like this, and we likely never will again, but you get to be a part of it now! Be bold with it, push the boundaries, and most importantly, have fun! Again, if you haven't already, please go ahead and recreate your Sunfire character on the Liberty--just don't post until June 1st. Until then...

Sunfire Crew,

This ship, the most hallowed name in IDF's history, now has a new Commanding Officer: I hereby promote Sandy "Ghost" Shannon to the rank of Captain and name her CO of this vessel (backdated to May 1st).

A very special thanks for former CO T'Brei Sheridan and Acting CO Jodon Arlidd. They both did a great job and we are forever grateful for their efforts.

Here here to the USS Sunfire and the many adventures ahead!

Duo trudged into his quarters, zombie-like, his body on autopilot. The last several days had worn heavily on him. Just inside his quarters, he kicked off his low boots and looked around. He hadn't unpacked anything yet, not that he had much with him.

The original plan for three days apart had passed. Brin’s journey had taken longer due to some unexpected complications with the locals. The crowds were not as receptive as he had hoped and with each hour that passed the feeling grew within him that he was begging rather than convincing.…
