Announcing the Starfleet Command Progressive Awards!
Welcome to NATA's newest series of awards! The STARFLEET COMMAND series!
Each of these progressive awards will challenge you to judiciously use your log entries in applying for each level of award in this progressive series. You must work your way up in rank by earning each award in the series before applying for the next level. Contacts made on or after January 1, 2009, are all eligible for use on these awards. The "25% rule" does not apply to the Cadet level but all subsequent levels and supplemental awards DO allow our standard 25% contacts from other sources. Application worksheets will be available by April 15th.
UPDATE! The rules for these awards are now posted on the website. CLICK HERE TO RETRIEVE THE AWARD RULES (MS WORD FORMAT). The Academy Cadet award worksheet is also available. Click on the award name below to retrieve that worksheet.
The awards are as follows:
Starfleet Academy Cadet - This is the entry level for all subsequent awards. Work 25 contacts including 10 contacts made on 10 consecutive NATA nets. The 25% rule for outside contacts does NOT count for this level! Once used on an application the contact can not be used on subsequent award applications.
Starfleet Ensign - After earning your Cadet certificate you "graduate" from the Academy by making additional contacts over and above your Cadet award. 40 contacts are required for this award level.
Starfleet Captain - 60 contacts are required to attain the rank of Captain. This level also requires participation as an NCS operator or an additional set of optional contacts. After earning this award you are eligible to apply for the supplemental awards (see below).
Starfleet Commodore - 100 contacts are required to attain the rank of Commodore. NCS participation is required (or additional contacts are required as an alternative).
Starfleet Admiral - 250 contacts are required to attain the rank of Admiral including contacts with all countries in North America (including the Caribbean islands).
Contacts used for these supplemental awards CAN be used for credit toward Commodore and Admiral levels of the progressive series. Complete rules and worksheets for these awards are still in development and will be released soon!
Delta Quadrant Expedition - Based upon the Star Trek "Voyager" series, this award requires 30 contacts.
Resistance is Futile! - You will be assimilated. Life as you know it is over. You will adapt to service US. Work 10 holders of each of the Cadet, Ensign, and Caption level awards to earn this award plus special Borg callsigns to fill your very own Borg Unimatrix.
Cardassian Challenge Note, Romulan "Warbird", and Klingon Dictionary - All of these awards are based upon working contacts to spell applicable terminology used by these three past or present enemies of the Federation!
The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition - Get your GREED on and work like a Ferengi to gain a profit advantage!
The Q Continuum - Work callsigns with the letter "Q" for various point levels based on the location of the Q in the call! It's a little complicated and convoluted just like good ol' Q him/her/itself. Each callsign you work will receive points based on the letters contained and the location of the Q is the multiplier! Work a total of Q3 points (17 x 17 x 17 - Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet!) to earn this one!
