The origins of the 95th Rifles Regiment was the 1800's AD before the Napoleonic Wars of that time, they were the first Regiment to sport Green Uniforms and thus became known as the Green Jackets. Back then they used the Baker Rifle and as time went on they were merged with other regiments and the name 95th was all but relegated to the history books and their Regimental Colours and standards were cased the 95th Rifles was also the only known 19th Century British Regiment to use the White Cord rating. Around 2388 a then Commander had an idea, shortly after she transferred to SFMC and upon making Colonel she re-christened the 95th Rifle Regiment, while currently not as big as its forebearer the revitalized 95th is building to Regimental level, currently, they are known just as the 95th Rifles, all the marines on the USS Tomcat are 95th Rifles, but as they are Captain Somers project they will leave the ship when she does.
The USS Tomcat is an Akira Class ship, with a slight difference, while its armaments and defences remain standard to some extent its evacuation capacity has been lowered to account for the extra fighter squadrons and Marines. The ship is commanded by an EX-Marine former Colonel turned Fleet Officer Captain Jasmine Somers, her missions are different from other standard missions due to the load-out and set-up of her crew and equipment.
So come join the Tomcat Crew as they head out to the less explored regions of Federation Space in an attempt to stop the Hostile and Rogue Intelligence Agencies and other undesirables on the fringes of known space.
THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES..........

Ensign Ted Silver - Team Leader
Ensign Silver did very well on his first time leading an Away Team Mission, he proved himself a strong and active leader and a team player who led his team well and retained control of the situations and challenges by his away team members threw at him and was praised by other members of his team for his ability, Lieutenant Remington Dodd was simming two PNPCs on Ensign Silvers Away Team to offer the advice and support should it be needed as Ensign Silver was nervous about leading his first Away Mission and I am pleased to hear he has done well and I hope he has more confidence in himself after a successful Away Mission that he led.

Lieutenant Donovan did well in the Away Mission and helped to keep the action moving along when the team was on the shuttle, while her participation was limited due to her assigned duty she did well for what she had at the time and simmed her PNPC well.

As Commander of an RPG simulation, there is nothing more rewarding than handing out rewards and achievements to those who have earned them, on the USS Tomcat there are two automatic Awards given, one is for the PC Marines the other for ALL crew. This one that is to be given is for the Six Month Tour of Duty Award, which for two people are overdue the third is due on the 22nd of this month but to save seperate Announement on that day the third simmer will get his award this day along with the other two.
So without further to do I am proud to announce the following three Tomcat Officers who have survived their 6 Month Tour of Duty, they are:
Lieutenant Jg Serina Donovan - Commander Air Group
Lieutenant Jg Lamia Arderne - Chief Operations Officer
Lieutenant Jg Cody Parker - Chief of Security/Mission Advisor
Lieutenant Parker's Award is officially due on the 22nd of this month, but like his two peers his Bio will show his 6 month Award today.
