Fleet Order 01OCT17-01
RE: 10OCT17 Awards
From: Rear Admiral Joseph Lyons, Third Fleet, Commanding
Prisoner of War Medal:
This award is issued to those TRMN members who dedicate time to another science fiction oriented fan
organization. A science fiction fan organization is a national/international organization in which people join to become a participating member. Some may require members to pay annual dues, while others do not. They usually have specific rules, bylaws, and other operating procedures by which they operate. In many instances, certain military-style uniforms based on certain science fiction intellectual property must be worn at official functions. This includes, but is not limited to, groups such as Maquis Forces International, STARFLEET International, Colonial Defense Forces, etc. To qualify for this award, the TRMN member *must* wear a distinctive RMN item (RMN Beret, RMMC Patch, RMN Awards, RMN Rank, etc) with their other uniform or fandom appropriate as a “Prisoner of War”. The item or items worn “must be distinctive” enough to leave no doubt that the person is also a member of TRMN. Wearing blue astrogration chevrons on a uniform that perfectly mimic the blue chevrons on many police-inspired costumes would not be sufficient to meet the criteria for this award. However, showing up to a meeting in your CDF uniform with your RMN Ship Patch would qualify.
Additionally, the event in which is a TRMN member attends in their other uniform or fandom appropriate outfit must be wholly sponsored by the science fiction oriented fan organization in question. Simply attending a convention as a member of another science fiction oriented fan organization is not sufficient to qualify for this award.
• Guertin, Thomas (2017 Starfleet International Conference)
• Kane, John (2017 Starfleet Region 2 Summit)
• Reagan, Douglas (2017 Starfleet Region 2 Summit)
The award is the lowest award for valor issued to the Royal Manticoran Armed Services. To qualify for this
award, the recipient must provide medical assistance during an emergency, regardless of the situation, that is not directly life threatening. This would include bringing a first aid kit to an accident, calling Emergency Medical Services, or providing simple first aid for minor injuries such as cuts or bruises. Regardless of the event, a statement from the senior most TRMN member will be sufficient to serve as evidence of the assistance rendered. If this occurs at a non-TRMN event, an additional written statement from a non-TRMN witness must accompany the nomination.
On 14SEP17, at approximately 1330 hours, a member of tRMN in Third Fleet’s Area of Operations posted online that he was suffering from thoughts of suicide, and his tone appeared to indicate intent to carry out the act. Responding rapidly, Captain (S.G.) Michael Romero, RMN, along with other tRMN members, replied to this post, urging the member not to act on the thoughts he was having at the time. At approximately 1400 hours the same day, the post was removed; Captain Romero contacted Rear Admiral Joseph Lyons about the affair, hoping to obtain direct contact information on the member, only to be informed that their assignment was to HMSS Greenwich. Captain Romero’s next step was to contact the FLA, Admiral Martin Lessem, to obtain the direct contact information of the member. Unable to reach them, Captain Romero contacted the local police force, hoping to help as best he could. He was informed that officers had been dispatched and that the situation had been – he presumed – amicably resolved. Through his actions, in concert with others, Captain S.G. Michael Romero is hereby awarded the Survivor’s Cross.
