AoO Comments

I was advised of an idea, Let me know what you think, Especially the Geo Commanders.

This idea will go into effect only after we have had the chance to discuss this.

Some time ago, I brought up a proposal that only a couple of chapters that I am fully aware of have adopted. Now granted this idea only works with chapters with several active members, and does not work for the smaller chapters with only a handful of active members.

Chapter/Geo Promotions;

Promotions within a chapter are usually handled as such. Great team work, dedication to the chapter, points earned toward your next promotion and more. This, as I am aware, is up to each chapter. What my thoughts were to have a 2 person authentication for this, what do I mean? Well fairly simple. On any promotion within the said chapter, the Commanding Officer and First Officer have to provide endorsement towards the individual’s promotion. This is for department heads and command level officers. If the officer/enlisted is being promoted with in the department, then if falls to the Department Commanding Officer and the First Officer to provide the OK on the advancement. Leaving the Captain with the absolute final say. This only works from Deckhand to Master Chief Petty Officers, Ensign to Senior Commanders.

Geo Level:

The 2 step promotion needs to have the OK from the chapter Commanding Officer and either First Officer of the Geo (If present) Commanding Officer of the Geo, giving the agreement process of said promotion, then this is passed up the chain of command to myself, (Admiral of Operations) and the Chief of Staff. to grant promotion to Senior Commanders/Captain/Fleet Captain and higher.

Anyone that is getting a promotion of above Fleet Captain requires a 3 person review. Whom are they, Admiral Of Operations, Chief of Staff and Fleet Admiral? This must be a 2 out of 3 or all three to be able to grant a promotion. The final yes always is in the hands of the Fleet Admiral.


Now onto the last idea.

After a conversation with another member (You know who you are) It has seen and this has been something that has bothered me. Effective as soon as possible, All Geo Commanders will be required to step up there involvement. What do I mean?

Any new chapter that is added to our fleet is givin’ a roughly 6 month grace period, this is mostly for providing a monthly report and to learn our procedures. Granted this is not a hard process, as we usually let each chapter function how they need to depend on their areas.

Geo Commanders will be in command of new chapters for half of the time of the 6 month grace period. This is to help the new chapter commander understand how we would like them to work with the IFT. How we do report each month and why help with understanding what should be done in the chapter and how if needed to handle promotions. After the 3 months, the new CO of the chapter gains full command of their chapter and you as a Geo Commander then step back to allow them to continue the process and still remain a helping hand. This is something Geo Commanders should be doing as it is. More than just saying yes or no on if a chapter has reported for that month or not.

I am open for comments. Let me know what you think. or


The Federation News

Recently and still in development, The Federation has engaged in a new location for Members, Chapter Commands and Geo Commands to collaborate with each other. The look of this new location is very familiar as we are utilizing a newly developed area for Business’s and other organizations to communicate among each other and not be bothered with Ads or individual’s that wish to put their own spin on business in general. The only way to gain access to this location is to have an existing email address. If you are interested in being added to this list to help your Chapter or Geo Commander, please submit a request through your commanding officer to get the process started. 

-Thank you

Welcome Introduction

10357598_10207090375757213_1073960946714607101_nHello, I am Admiral Allen Hohensee. I am currently holding the position of Admiral of Operations, I have been placed in charge of all the Geo’s and each Geo Commander is in charge of Their chapters located in each Geo. We have recently gone through a re-positioning of our Geo Locations so please keep in mind that your chapter might not be in the same Geo as it once was. Below I will be putting up our new Geo Locations. I have also placed a couple of Tabs above that allows you the member to see what chapters are located where and their corresponding Geo Location Commanders and Chapter Commanders. We have also expanded our email system and now we have a dedicated email for each chapter to be able to get in touch in case you have a few questions. Please feel free to look around, if you have any questions. I have a Contact Tab above that sends an email straight to me.

Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, created a utopic world that promotes unity and acceptance of all walks of life. He introduced us to this world through the experiences of James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard “Bones” McCoy, Montgomery Scott, and Nyota Uhura; just to name a few. Since the original launch of Star Trek until the 2009 re-launch by J.J. Abrams the fan base for this universe has grown to encompass most of the world; certainly every place that Star Trek can be viewed. The founders of the International Federation of Trekkers aspire to promote that same utopic community in modern society.

Thank you,

Allen Hohensee
