Under the recommendation and witness thereof from Captain Shackelford


Nomination for Silver Star

Nominee: CMDR Savar
Date: Mid June, 2010
Location: Infected STF

A squad consisting of myself, Mr. Hanson, Mr. Hau, Mr. Augurson, and Mr. Savar warped in to the Infected STF with the aim of completing the mission for Mr. Hau's Science Officer Alt. The mission went as it tends to always go, the squad being outstanding and we fought our way to the Borg Queen in short time and with little difficulty.

However, the Queen (end boss) is an incredibly difficult and taxing encounter that generally takes several attempts and has no gaurantee of success under any circumstances. I have attempted this encounter with several groups of different compositions and utilizing several strategies on various occassions and the squad has failed to complete the kill more often than not.

Our first two attempts on this particular run met with full party wipes. On the third attempt, the Queen slowly whittled down the group until only one of us was left standing - Mr. Savar. The Borg Queen had a bit less than 10% health left, and over the course of the next minute or two the 4 deceased party members watched as Mr. Savar utilized nearly every skill, consumable, and kit action to not only keep himself alive under incredible damage strikes from the Queen, but ultimately bring her down and thereby complete the mission for the group.

I know that I have had the opportunity to complete a kill on the Queen as the last man standing when she was nearly dead, and I have been unable to do so. It was an excellent display of cool headed-ness and skill that struck me as worthy of higher recognition.

Thank you for your consideration.

I am extremely honored by this award! Receiving the fleet's first silver star is not something I expected in the least.

I have never been much one for long winded words, but I would like to take this opportunity to tell all of you how much I appreciate your friendship, and your steadfastness to one another. It is truly an honor to serve with such fine persons. It is not everyday that one is able to find a group such as the 7th Fleet!

OOOOO RAAAAHHHH Gentlemen!

Thank you again for bestowing this honor on me.

Congratulations, Mr. Savar. I would have recommended you for this award at the time; but I was under a false impression that flag staff need be present for such a nomination.

Better late than never, and well earned in my personal opinion.

Also, please be advised that I will be redesigning this medal (along with the Flying Cross) in the near future to have more of a 'Star Trek' appearance.
