The Region 3 Individual awards are unique to Region 3, and have a long history. In 2016 we updated these awards to eliminate duplication with the SFI orders of merit, streamline our recognition efforts, and recognize those members of R3 who have passed that made a huge impact on our sector of the fleet. They are listed here in order of seniority, from highest, to lowest.
Marian L. Murphy Meritorious Service Award
The Marian L. Murphy Meritorious Service Award honors the legacy of Marian L. Murphy for her dedicated service to STARFLEET for over twenty years, and her tireless service to Region 3. The award recognizes sustained meritorious service greater than five years that contributed to the welfare and growth of the zone, Region, or STARFLEET, or a combination of those. The Marian L. Murphy Meritorious Service Award is presented at the discretion of the Region Coordinator with approval of the Awards Committee. A Region 3 member may receive this award only once during a six year period.
Steven “Doc” Jessup Distinguished Service Award
The Steven “Doc” Jessup Distinguished Service Award honors the legacy of service of Steven “Doc” Jessup for his dedication of service to Region 3 for many years. The award recognizes sustained distinguished service of greater than two years and up to four years that contributed to the welfare and growth of the zone, Region, STARFLEET, or a combination of those. The Steven “Doc” Jessup Distinguished Service Award is presented at the discretion of the Region Coordinator with approval of the Awards Committee. A Region 3 member may receive this award only once during a five year period.
Glen Corbin Mentorship Award
The Glen Corbin Mentorship Award honors the legacy of Glen Corbin and his dedication to STARFLEET, Star Trek and the spirit of mentorship in which he served this region. This award gives recognition for a member’s mentorship that has aided or improved the abilities of other members, or other chapters in achieving their aims or goals. Experienced members’ mentoring of others can be of significant importance in building, improving or sustaining STARFLEET’s presence. Mentorship may be Region or STARFLEET related, or may be the passing of knowledge in areas that would be of assistance such as communication, public relations/publicity, engineering, computer/web/social media, writing or other fields that impact operations. This mentorship must be measurable, verifiable and quantifiable in what the mentored member(s) have gained (For example. after the mentorship the members can now host a game day event, to include all required planning – and this is verifiable in that they have since hosted the event and raised $400 for charity). Further, all nominations will come from the Zone Leaders, or go through the Zone Leaders or the Chief of Operations to the Awards Committee for accuracy and verification.
Maelstrom Navigation Award
The Maelstrom Navigation Award recognizes outstanding effort and leadership on a Zone or Region-wide level by a Region 3 contributor to zone or Region level work or events over the course of a year. This award for superior performance recognizes the member’s hard work and contribution that makes a positive impact on the reputation of the Region and STARFLEET. The Maelstrom Navigation Award is intended to recognize those that contribute in more than one narrow area, but lend their efforts consistently.
Region 3 Chapter awards:
Region 3 Chapter Commendation
The Region 3 Chapter Commendation is awarded to chapters, shuttles, or Chapters-in-Training (Shakedown) for noteworthy participation, action, service or improvement beyond normal, expected, or mandatory actions or activities. Chapters will be recommended by the RC, VRC, and Chief of Operations or Zone Leaders to the Awards Committee for confirmation. The recommendation/nomination must be supported with a detailed explanation of the basis for the Commendation.
Region 3 Creative Media Awards:
Two categories fall within the Creative Media awards, Print Communication (Zenith) and Electronic Communication (Apogee). Applicable winners of these awards will have the R3 staff’s assistance in preparation for the submission to the corresponding STARFLEET recognition program.
