Awards


Awards are a crucial way of recognising the achievements and impact of our players here on the USS Ulysses. Whilst they are awarded from an OOC perspective, they are given for a mixture of In Character and Out of Character reasons.

For awards prior to August 2020, please visit the awards archive found here.

Command Authority Commendation

Awarded to any player, at any time, the award is granted by the Command Authority for any criteria they may deem reasonable.

Service Commendation

Awarded to a player upon the successful completion of six months of active participation aboard the Ulysses, and awarded every six months after that.

Character Development Citation

Nominated by any player on the Ulysses, the Character Development Citation is awarded to a player in recognition of their ability to develop their main player character into a real asset for the sim. To be eligible, the player must work to develop their character in a variety of ways and use them in a variety of posts, not just mission advancement posts.

Collaboration Citation

Nominated by any player aboard the Ulysses, the Collaboration Citation is awarded to any player that shows fantastic collaboration skills when working with others on the sim. The award covers a range of areas, ranging from bio creation, plot development, joint posts and site maintenance. Anything that demonstrates the ability to work with others players well is worthy of consideration.

Dedication Citation

Nominated by any player on the Ulysses, the Dedication Citation is awarded to a player for showing great dedication to the sim; this might include constant activity, working with others, recruiting players or representing the sim elsewhere and to a high standard.

Innovation Citation

Nominated by any player on Ulysses, the Innovation Citation is awarded to a player that has shown great innovation in coming up with an idea that has been used for the greater development of the sim, such as a piece of technology, a plot device or even a mission idea.

Merit Citation

Nominated by any player of the Ulysses, the Merit Citation is awarded to a player for showing meritorious service to the sim with regular contributions of great quality and for generally being an all round asset to the sim.

Player of the Mission Citation

With all players on the sim eligible, the players will nominate their player of the mission at the end of each mission and the player with the most nominations will be awarded the Player of the Mission Citation. A range of criteria can be considered, such as who has been most active, who has written the most quality posts, who has helped others the most during the mission and who has worked to further the plot successfully.

Post of the Mission Citation

Awarded at the conclusion of each mission, the players will nominate an individual solo character post for consideration as post of the mission. Nominations will be accepted from everyone and the solo post with the most nominations will earn the Post of the Mission Citation for the relevant player. Posts from the perspective of both Player Characters and (P)NPC’s will be considered.

Joint Post of the Mission

Awarded at the conclusion of each mission, the players will nominate a joint post written by at least two players for consideration as post of the mission. Nominations will be accepted from everyone and the joint post with the most nominations will earn the Joint Post of the Mission Citation for every player involved in writing the post.
