Subj: BATTLESTAR ARIES / FENRIS PROMOTIONS
1. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Battlestar Aries and Fellow Colonial Warships operating here in the 7th Fleet. I am always honored to recognize our hard charging people who day in and day out do their best to make a difference. I myself find it a humbling experience b/c it always feels like the first time for me. Onboard the Battlestar Aries we have such members i would like to recognize at this time for their loyalty and dedications to the Aries.
2. The brave young men and women have gone through alot over the years juggling Sci Fi fandom and real life in order to take care their families as well as close friends. Again i am reminded how television shows can actually reflect what happens in the real world.
3. I have been very fortunate to be blessed with knowing such dedicated people whom i have met in person at CONS as well as just simple dinner or hanging out. The high caliber of these people does not surprise me. The same goes to the men and women who have served onboard the Aries but are not with us anymore. Such quality is unmatched and though they are not onboard the Aries i still maintain contact with them. Through it all friendships are everlasting no matter how many fall outs people go through. In the end all you have is one another.
4. Without any further ado it is with great honor the following Colonials are promoted to the next rank. ~Atten HUT!~ Attention to ceremony. ~Looks at the certificate as he reads~
