Memorial Day with the USS Missouri

It’s rare for my sister and I to travel together, so when we joined Admiral┬áJames Herring, it was to mark a solemn day in the United States dedicated to honouring the service and sacrifice of US Service Personnel during the war of 1914-1918.


On Memorial Day, May 25th, 2020, in the early hours of the day, myself, Cmdr. Erwin Bear of the USS Missouri, along with LTCMDR AnnaZey thas-Nan and LTCMDR MistHrey ses-Var of the officer exchange program from the USS Animus, visited the World War 1 Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. There is an honor brick there that STARFLEET has honoring all World War 1 veterans.

Though a bit windy, and the inside museum was closed, we walked around the outside. From the overlook you can see historic Union Station and the downtown.

It was a nice time to visit.

Both officers from the USS Animus and Cmdr. Bear of the USS Missouri, will be travelling to another ship and continue the officer exchange program.


I wonder if we’ll travel with Commander Bear, he was quite pleasant and very charming.

GIO Stadium with the USS Animus

It is one thing entirely to say that the most popular past time of the residents of Region 11 is sport. So when the threat of Global Pandemic from Covid-19, and it was no different.

On March 15, 2020, when I joined my CO, Commander Ross Manuel of the USS Animus on the occasion of the last game of the Super Rugby men’s rugby union international club competition.
The game was between the NSW Warratahs and the Plus500 Brumbies of the Australian Capital Territory. This would be considered an Animus local derby as both teams operate within our patrol sector.
It’s exciting watching Human sports, we don’t have this kind of warmth or athletic displays on Andoria. though it was encouraging to see that the local authorities where regularly encouraging social distancing and the application of proper hand hygiene.

While as an Andorian I am immune to the Novel Covid-19 infection, I recommend all sentients to exercise effective hand hygiene and adhere to all instructions from health agencies.

Though the CO expected the outcome, that the team he supports the Waratahs were unlikely to emerge victorious considering their past performance this tournament, he was not expecting the outcome to be 47-14 in the favour of the Brumbies.

It made for a quiet ride back to the Animus.

I didn’t want to mention to him that I always appreciated Terran horses.
